    ^Oh, you mean a potential spoiler for TWD, because it could mean the actor is going to leave the series? I'm not sure that's necessarily so, since sometimes series actors do other pilots and whether they stay or leave is contingent on whether the pilot sells.

    Read something saying he's doing the new show but he won't be leaving TWD.

    And
    the showrunners have said the Governor won't appear in the first couple of episodes this season (he's not featured or mentioned at all in the season trailer), and when he does show it'll be a surprise. I wouldn't be surprised if the character doesn't show up until episode eight and then has most of his episodes in next year's half-season.

    That he's doing to die this season seems extremely likely, it's more surprising that he survived the fallout of season 3, where the character's arc reached a natural endpoint.

    Yea, I'm thinking it would be a bigger spoiler to have confirmation he'll live all the way through S4, then to know he might possibly die sometime in S4. I think it's a definite expectation that he won't make it to a Season 5

    Sounds like yet another post-Apocalypse filled with scruffily dressed angry people.

    CW developing "Wizard of Oz" project

    An evil Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion? Ugh.

    CBS Kurtzman/Orci apocalyptic drama

    Yet another revisionist classic is yet another example of creative bankruptcy, but a pre-Apocalypse drama sounds like it could be interesting.

    I don't think evil Dorothy is all that unlikely? Afterall, look at the con Glinda and the Wizard pulled on Dorothy getting her to kill the Wicked Witch.

    (Glinda to Wicked Witch of the West) "Oh, the shoes? They're on Dorothy's feet, and that's where they'll stay. And you better watch your step, or a house just might fall on you, too" So, she not only taunted the Wicked Witch about her sister's death at Dorothy's hands, she also taunted her about Dorothy stealing the shoes off her dead sister's still warm corpse. On top of all that, Glinda knew full well, all Dorothy had to do was click her heels together three times and chant "There's No Place Like Home", but, instead of telling Dorothy that, she sent her to The Wizard who set her on a path to be forced to kill The Wicked Witch. It amazes me how many people really buy into the lie that Glinda is so sweet and innocent, just because she's pretty and speaks with a melodic voice.

    After being put through all that, and then Dorothy's return trips, it's no wonder Dorothy became evil and power hungry.
