The most recent episode of "The Walking Dead" this past Sunday ended with a cliffhanger making audiecens wonder what is next for the Governor. For those who cannot wait until the next episode to find out, check out what showrunner Scott M. Gimple has to say about the Governor's fate – just be warned, this article contains spoilers.
Last Sunday's episode ended with the Governor looking intently at the prison, but it wasn't clear what was going through his head at the time. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gimple would not say what exactly the Govenor was thinking or looking at, but he did say audiences will find out soon.
"I would say that's a good question, that's another good question, and that's a great question. But I will tell you this: You'll get the answers to those questions pretty damn quickly," Gimple said.
Though remaining secretive, Gimple did provide some insight into what the next episode will contain.
"We will be really getting into who this guy is, to further define this guy. 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," he said.
Though he was tight-lipped on details of coming episodes, Gimple did promise that questions will be answered.
"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," the showrunner told Entertainment Weekly.
