The Walking Dead- Dead Weight "Somebody pissed somebody off" Live Chat 9pm

WASHINGTONNov 24, 2013 —Last week on “The Walking Dead,” all eyes were on the governor’s return. Instead of the blood thirsty dictator we grew to know and loathe in season three, a diluted and meek governor has replaced him, but for how long?

The governor returned looking like a homeless man with a serious case of PTSD, but what could possibly have traumatized him? Is it all just a well-calculated act? There was no hint of where the governor had been since he burned down Woodbury or what he had done to survive. There are a lot of missing details to be filled in on later episodes. But for now viewers are left to speculate and anticipate.

Last week when he encountered three new survivors who had somehow managed to avoid interaction with walkers, the governor quietly and quickly latched onto them.

By now, viewers are familiar with the governor’s ability to coerce the unsuspecting, so is it just a matter of time before he establishes another cult- like following?

It stands to reason that Martinez and the governor will join forces again, but there is only room for one leader. The governor is focused on establishing a new identity that separates him from his violent past. Since Martinez is the only witness to the governor’s carnage at Woodbury, his survival is unlikely.

This week’s trailer hints that a new gang of survivors have moved into the neighborhood. Will the governor take them under his wing or will he look at them as enemies and slaughter them for their supplies? Who knew that in a zombie apocalypse, the living would be just as threatening as the dead?

As usual on “The Walking Dead,” there are more questions than answers. There are only two episodes left before the mid season finale, so look for a major buildup to the usual cliff hanger. It is a foregone conclusion that Rick and the prison survivors will face the governor again. The only question is when and where it will happen.

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
