New ‘Walking Dead’ Photo Teases Major Moment From Comics

What’s The Governor up to? When last we saw him, he was standing in a ditch, clutching a young child to his chest, staring up at Martinez, a one-time friend turned possible foe. But we also know the Governor will survive his current predicament long enough to stand outside the Prison walls in present times — although his true purposes remain unknown.

A new photo from AMC’s The Walking Dead released by MTV News sheds some further light on The Governor’s plans. The photo, seen above, features Philip Blake Brian Heriot sitting on a bench, downtrodden as usual, positioned no more than three or four feet away from a massive tank tread. That image alone should speak a thousand words for readers of the Walking Dead comics: In the source material, The Governor reenters Rick Grimes’ life in very dramatic fashion, thanks at least in part to a tank.

Is it a sign that the coming episodes of The Walking Dead will mirror the “Made to Suffer” arc from the comics? If so, an already bloody season is about to get a whole lot bloodier.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
