‘The Walking Dead’: Scott Wilson on Hershel’s Death Scene

Episode 4×09 Sneak Peek VIDEO - Carl Wrangles Two Walkers
I’m not at all happy that I called Hershel’s death last week (I hear many people were hoping against hope). But, as the actor himself points out in post-”death” interviews, there was quite a bit of foreshadowing in both episodes 403 and 405 of The Walking Dead. Anyway, the presence of Scott Wilson‘s character will be greatly missed and will have a huge impact on the whole group. Be sure to read the interview that Wilson did for EW (link is below).
I also correctly predicted Michonne’s (Danai Guriria) kidnapping but was wrong about what the Governor would do (or not do) to her whilst he had her. My feeling is that the Governor was not put to as good use last season and so his story this season was somewhat truncated by necessity (also the actor, David Morrissey, is starring in a new series).
I liked how in the midst of the carnage, Lilly (Audrey Marie Anderson) showed up with the body of her walker-bitten daughter Meghan, and the Governor nonchalantly put a bullet in Meghan’s head only to have Lilly later put a bullet in the Governor, in much the same unaffected manner.
The Walking Dead comic book aficionados know that a follower of the Governor named Lilly shot and killed the Governor after he did the same to both Lori and Judith Grimes.
Since the official AMCtv recap says that Rick and Carl find “Judith’s blood-soaked baby carrier” we are going to have to definitively accept that this episode brought the demise of Hershel, Judith and The Governor, as well as most of the Governor’s people.
EDIT: Based on a number of not-so-vague statements including this one today from the Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman, there is a serious question whether Judith is dead. Read the article. There isn’t much to go on–Kirkman almost always is deliberately vague about most everything show-related he says.
The status of Rick group is: Rick and Carl and probably, Michonne, are together. Sasha and Bob escaped as a team as did Daryl and Beth. Glenn is on the bus with and undetermined number of Woodbury survivors, Tyreese is with Mika and Lizzie. We don’t know with whom Maggie may be; we were not shown her escape but she appears in the promo for the second half of the season (which premieres in February 2013). We did not see Lilly (Audrey Marie Anderson) escape nor die either, but she is not featured in the 2014 promo, so I guess we’ll be waiting on that one.
My prediction is that within a couple of episodes of the second half of season 4, Carol (Melissa McBride) will unite with at least some of Rick’s camp. Lucky for him, Lizzy saved Tyreese’s (Chad L. Coleman) life and since both Lizzie and and Mika were to be Carol’s changes, it would be nice if everyone could make nice if/when they come together. Interestingly, in the comics, for a time a very different Carol was romantically involved with Tyreese.

(SPOILERS) Hershel Greene Tribute: The Walking Dead VIDEO
Follow Hershel’s journey throughout The Walking Dead.
He is often referred to as the moral compass of the group but that compass was sliced and diced by a katana-wielding maniac on last night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Yes, the unthinkable happened as kindly veterinarian/farmer Hershel Greene was killed by the Governor after Rick refused to acquiesce to demands that they evacuate the prison. It was a brutal slaying, with the Governor taking several chops at Hershel’s neck. (Although the Governor would be on the receiving end of that sword himself shortly after.) We spoke to the man who played Hershel, Scott Wilson, about how he learned of Hershel’s demise, details on his last day of filming, and what’s it like watching your own head get chopped off.
