Last night’s The Walking Dead ended with a big twist, and now showrunner Scott Gimple is talking about the new developments.

In The Walking Dead season 4, episode 5 title “Internment,” the last few seconds depicted The Governor returning to the prison and observing it from the edge of the woods. We’ll have to wait until next week to see what he’s up to, but a trailer for the episode showed that he has a big presence in the storyline.

Gimple spoke today about what we can expect from The Governor when we start spending more time with him next Sunday. “We will be really getting into who this guy is, to further define this guy,” he explains to EW. “He did something very pronounced at the end of the season that defines him a certain way that affected him a great deal. That’s changed him a great deal. So we will see who this man is now. There will absolutely be a flashback element to filling in some of those blanks. More so, I would say, than we did with rejoining the prison.”

The showrunner adds that in the episodes ahead we’ll explore what’s left for The Governor after losing Woodbury. “We know what he did. He killed those people. We know that Rick welcomed, basically, the remaining people in. That town did very much make up that man’s identity. And his purpose. And everything he was fighting for. And asking the question, what’s left after that? — we’re gonna see. We’re gonna answer that question. We’re gonna show that.”

Check out our Walking Dead recap to relive the events of last night’s episode during which the infection caused new havoc and Rick came clean about Carol.

Episode 6 airs this Sunday, November 17 at 9 p.m. eastern on AMC.

What are your Governor predictions, with this new intel in mind?

    Once evil, always evil. We’ve seen the facade he can put out. Hope they don’t expect me to believe he’s seen the light!

  • Ryan Floyd

    Thanks for the spoiler, guys.

      you had to know he would come back eventually. if you didn’t want to read the article, don’t click it. though, it is a little annoying I could see for you saying basically he’s coming back next episode, but they didn’t ruin what the twist was so.

      • Juan Pedia

        We knew he was coming back, but we didn’t know when. That was the surprise ruined on the homepage for people who haven’t seen last night’s episode yet.

        • Ultron

          What difference does it make really? You knew he would come back anyway who cares what episode it happens to be. And nowhere in this article title does it mention anything about the Governor being in last nights episode. You clicked the article about the Governor. If you’re trying to avoid spoilers don’t read an article about the rest of the season especially when it’s a day after a new episode just came out when they’re bound to talk about what just happened.

          • Juan Pedia

            I never said it inconvenienced me personally.

      This isn’t a spoiler unless you read the article. We knew the Governor is coming back. We did not say in the headline or lead when he was coming back. That photo is from last season.

  • Juan Pedia

    Try to keep spoilers off the homepage, please. It only aired LAST NIGHT, for Pete’s sake.

    • http://www.hypable.com/ Andrew Sims

      Repeat – This isn’t a spoiler unless you read the article. We knew the Governor is coming back. We did not say in the headline or lead when he was coming back. That photo is from last season.

      • Andy Genova

        Yeah but keep in mind, no one knew when Merle was coming back. We all knew he would eventually, and it took a couple of seasons. If people didn’t see the last episode, they would have no way of knowing it was this season the Governor was coming back. I personally don’t think it was too spoilery, but some people are a bit sensitive.

    Could not be less excited for the return of this asshat. Also sick of people complaining about spoilers with every article. Your only option is to stay off the internet until you’ve watched it. Otherwise shut up.

    I’m so disappointed that the Gov isn’t as insane as his comic book counterpart- he seems rather anticlimactic actually. In the comic books, you’re just like “whoa” the whole time.

    • Mkay

      wait for it

      • Hannah

        I know what you’re hinting at and frankly, I’m looking forward to it even though it means big trouble for the group.
