|The Walking Dead Returns|
|Walking Dead Governor Lays Dead On The Ground|
The first photo clearly shows the Governor lying on the ground, his face in the middle of the red Jeep on the left and the red and white SUV on the right. (Pay no attention to the reflection of our floor lamp shining through onto the television) Notice the walkers coming directly toward the Governor in the center?
|Walking Dead Walkers Waltz By The Governor|
Gaze again at the first photo to find a reference point. The vehicle is at the same distance in the second photo as the first. Hence, since the walker is still between the red Jeep and the red and white SUV, the walker is in the direct path of the Governors body.
|Walkers Do Not Devour The Governor|
Two questions here:
One, why are the walkers not descending upon the Governor to devour his flesh?
Two: Where is the Governors body?
I can answer both questions in one sentence. The walkers are not descending upon the Governor because the Governor was somehow able to get up and get out of the walkers path. But how? He was beaten, stabbed, and supposedly shot and left on the ground for the walkers to have their way with him. Pretty damn good justice for the Governor.
However, from the evidence presented here, the governor did survive episode #8, (To Far Gone) to terrorize another day. Fact, the gunshot fired by Lilly was not shown on film. She could have easily missed with the way her handing was shaking. Fact, the Governor is lying between the Jeep and the SUV. Fact, the walkers do not devour the Governor. Fact, the governor is not on the ground where he is supposed to be as the walkers cruise by.
My theory is that the Governor is still alive and that he had assistance to escape the walkers in the field at the end of episode #8. One scenario is that Carol provided that assistance, pulling the Governor to safety to another one of the vehicles scattered in the prison field. Carol then drove him off to safety, nursed his wound inflicted by Michonne, and found shelter to allow him to heal. There are other scenario's but this one seems to fit the best.
Carol has an ulterior motive saving the Governor. She needs help to get her adopted children back. She needs an ally. A ruthless motivated ally. The Governor is a perfect choice. Both Carol and the Governor can attack with a united front.
No matter who helped or how the Governor escaped, he did!
We haven't seen the last of the Governor or Carol.
