    Merry Christmas to you! May the zombies always be far from your door and may Daryl always be there to guard your back.

    According to the Walking Dead wiki:
    • While the term "zombie" does exist within The Walking Dead universe, it is seldom used. In the comic book, when Rick's group discover the prison, both Rick and Tyreese discuss how it still sounds funny to use the word "zombie". Likewise, in the Telltale video game, the term is used but very rarely. "Zombie" is never used in the TV series...

    Have you watched the webisodes? I just watched the Oath and it seems to offer a subtle explanation as to how Rick survived.

    There was a lone (crazy) Doctor who was still at the hospital where Rick was. It's possible she was caring for him.

    That makes sense. I never thought of that.

    The Walking Dead: Rumors Circulate The Governor Could Return

    Please writers of TWD, no more Governor, even if Lily missed the guy is not superman and there is no way he wouldn't be Walker bait, beside that his story is played out, IMO there is nothing left to see, there is too much great story left moving forward to keep revisiting the past.

    I hope not, the Governor's arc should be over at this point. He's fallen, had his redemption and then fallen from that. His arc is over.

    David Moresey(?) is a fine actor and all but we need to be done with the Governor. And, as said, even if Lily missed/didn't shoot at the Governor he took a pretty serious wound from Michonne's katana, it went right through his chest and had to have damaged a lung, a major artery, his heart or something pretty important. Given the lack of emergency medical care and qualified cardiac surgeons in the ZA I doubt he'd survive.

    If anything it'll be flashbacks. I can't see them bringing him back alive it really would undercut the power of the season 4 mid finale.

    What about that poster is specifically bleak for them?
    I'm trying to read in here: Turning their backs on the group after what happened to "little ass kicker"? Striking out on their own?

    That poster doesn't show anything particularly bleak. The few clips AMC has been showing since the mid-season finale tell more than that.

    As far as the Governor is concerned, I can only hope they don't try and bring him back.
    In one of the clips they've been showing, Rick is out cold. Perhaps that is where they could bring him back. In some sort of dream while he's unconscious.

    I read my share of comics but never read WD. Even as into the show as I am I decided to not get into it and just let the show unfold without me having additional expectations about what I should/shouldn't expect.

    Looks like with these 3 new to the show characters that have plenty of source familiarity we have time to work with them for awhile. Maybe this Negan character won't come on board till midway S5 if not start S6 if he's such a brutal badass. Better to use him a closing chapters for the show(assuming 7 seasons). Assuming that the comic doesn't unmine equally fresh material in the intervening time.

    Unfortunately Compendium Two ends at a point where you hear a little about Negan, but don't see him in person yet, so I still don't have the, umm, pleasure of knowing him yet, and I'd rather hold out for Compendium Three (which may be a while) rather than get the individual volumes.

    I just ordered Compendium One. Does that just cover what we're up to now?
