That is the big question on every Walking Dead fan's mind and thus far, the producers and cast have been very tight lipped about it. So far it has been confirmed that we would be seeing the Governor and Merle would be returning but in no way will they confirm if they are one in the same.
Even Micheal Rooker, the actor who plays Merle, casts shadows of doubt on this pair up. When asked if he was indeed returning as the Governor, he replied:
“It doesn’t seem like Merle is The Governor. Merle is Merle. I think if I come back, I’m going to be even bigger than The Governor.”This could be a misleading tidbit to cover up the always secretive direction the show is going to take, or it could be absolutely true.
“My character may end up being some sort of composite of The Governor/Merle/something else. I don’t know. They’re not going to stick to the graphic novels at all. The graphic novels are written wonderfully, but they’re graphic novels. This is little films. This is TV, so it has to be written in that way.”
“I think it’s advantageous for the show to wait a bit…so that when I do come back, when my character does reappear, I think it’s going to be a big deal and there’s going to be hell to pay.”
There was a huge stir when this picture was circulated as "Merle and Daryl on set of season 3 with Merle growing the governor beard". This was a complete mistake and or falsehood. The man with the beard is actually David Boyd, the Director of Photography
As rumors continue to fly, there is word that British actor, David Morrissey, has signed on to play the part of the governor. You may recall David from the Doctor Who Christmas Special of the ill fated "Basic Instinct 2".
You be the judge if he fits the bill.
The very painful fact is we truly will not know what the show will actually bring until it airs. While rumors and high jumping conclusions continue to run rampant, I think part of the show's allure is not knowing what exactly happens next. The one thing I am sure of is the stellar job that the producers have done thus far and hopefully will continue to do in future episodes. It is going to be a great season 3 that will not have the slightest capacity to suck!
Speaking of capacity to suck, Monster Man continues to create a veritable black hole of suckage.

If you guessed :
- They were down to the second of being late with a project that had a shortened deadline.
- There was fighting between family and employee/boss.
- They built a prop that makes the Toxic Avenger look like Star Wars in comparison.
Then you would be correct. Same thing every show with a different poorly executed prop. I will be glad when this show is canceled and they can put something else in that may have entertainment value.
