Spoilers: New image from The Walking Dead teases iconic moment from the comics

Nov. 22, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

MTV News has a new image from this Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, but it isn't just a tease for the new episode: the picture also hints at a massive event from the comics that might be coming up very soon on the show. If you haven't read the comics, the image below won't ruin anything, but my comments will, so if you want to avoid the spoilers, don't scroll past Daryl Dixon shooting Edward Cullen in the head.

Still with me? Then let's jump right to it then, shall we?

The Governor is definitely sitting next to a tank in the above image, and you know what that means:

In the comics, Rick and his crew end up leaving the prison after The Governor assaults it with a small army and a tank. It's a huge moment in the comics with several characters dying, including Lori. Obviously it won't be the same on the show since that character died last season, but it does look like there will be an attack on the prison soon with The Governor commanding a tank. It's a moment from the comics many fans have been waiting for ever since the first season, and hopefully the prison attack on the show will be just as devastating as it was in the comics.

I've never read the comics, just a fan of the show. And in the context of the show I really like the direction they seem to be taking. It seems that instead of either A) Having him hold on to that hate and evil or B) Have a change of heart for reasons, they're instead allowing the character to come to terms with the things he's done, the horrible horrible decisions he's made. I don't think he'll find redemption, but I don't see exactly how the Gov will go from taking care of this new group to

Plus, wasn't his assault with a small army last seasons deal?

We actually can't say anything for sure. Could be the tank is just some kind of easter egg for the fans. The photo has no context, so assuming that the tank assault actually happens is a bit of a leap. Personally, I like some of the stuff they're doing. They borrowed a bit from the novel about The Governors past, including the revelation of his real name, which is kind of cool. I am waiting for him to unleash that beast though. Expecting that this Governor will unleash a tank on Rick and co.

Expecting that this Governor will unleash a tank on Rick and co. doesn't really go along with his personality, but who knows. Maybe it WILL happen if he snaps (or rather, WHEN he snaps).

I"m down with it. I didn't get the feeling the prison was going to last the entire season anyway, but I dig that they are bringing it around full circle to have The Governor as the man that still brings down the prison.

Having said, my hope is that the prison falls at the mid-season break. When it picks up again the show should follow them as wanderers for the rest of the season before moving them to the next inevitable season-centred setting. That should bring them pretty much up to date

But knowing the writing on this show, I would assume the rest of the first half of the season will show The Governor building an army, the next half will be building to yet another showdown between the prison and Governor to have the whole season end with the fall of the Prison. And also, I'm sure Carol ends up with the Governor too!

Bringing him back was the perfect way to ruin an otherwise decent season.

last episode I was happy that he gets longer hair and a beard ..but then next thing I know he's all shaved and his hair nicely cut..I didn't realise Barbers were still around and apparently immune to zombies 'walkers'.
I guess he isn't going to lose his arm either.

p.s zombies although walk slow, quickly catch up with the fast running victims who have sophisticated weapons.

This is horseshit

After last weeks governor centric episode, and what seems to be another governor-centric episode this week, it seems like they're trying to turn the governor to a sympathetic character. That brief glimpse of the governor at the end of the episode from a couple weeks ago made it seem like an enemy coming back for revenge, but now it seems like he's going to the prison so he can get help for his new found family that he's protecting.

You're kidding, right? Clearly this is a momentary point at which the Governor tries to redeem himself. Obviously so that it can be taken away from him, as that's a major theme of the GN and the show. He's either going to be pushed, or tempted to go back to his old ways.

I don't know how it goes in the comics but the show is obviously different and it moves awfully slow...like a walker. But I have to say, I am bored to tears with the Governor....just kill him in the best possible way and be done with it please!!!!

You thought the Governor in the GN was interesting. He was so boring and one-dimensional that Kirkman remade him in the GN with Negan. If you want to watch people just power through wave after wave of zombies, just play a video game.

Maybe it'll happen in the fall finale and than we see the consequences in the second half of the season when the show comes back.

** Minor Spoilers.....
From the beginning of this season, with people getting sick, loosing their livestock and with the growing population within the prison. I got the feeling that the place isn't going to last as their haven. I think these scenes with Rick and Carl growing crops and able to mow down any number of walkers will all be for not when the Governor shows up again for retribution.

I wonder too since Michonne and Hershel left at last episode, that will come back as possibly a

I wonder too since Michonne and Hershel left at last episode, that will come back as possibly a scene of sorts in the graphic novel when the Governor has Tyreese bound, with Michonnes sword to his neck.

Spoilers: nothing in this story, in either medium, ever lasts.

Its too bad people are so goddamn sensitive about this kind of stuff. I honestly wouldn't consider this spoilery, but I guess its better to be safe than sorry. This is about as much as spoilery as an Iron Man set pick of Stark sitting close to his armor. But I know if you didn't pre-empt it, someone would definitely bitch.
