**Spoiler Alert**

If you don’t want to know ANYTHING about the third-season finale of AMC’s monster hit “The Walking Dead,” please click out of this story pronto!

The war between Rick Grimes and The Governor may be settled for now, but it’s not the last we’ll be seeing of the dastardly David Morrissey — he will be back next season as a series regular on “The Walking Dead,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The British actor had originally signed on for a single season, but now it’s confirmed the ruthless villain will still be a force to reckon with in Season 4.

Morrissey’s “Governor” went full-blown evil on Sunday night, wiping out HIS OWN army in a shocking massacre when their attempt to take down the prison failed miserably after they were outwitted and ambushed by Rick and company. Just what happened to The Governor after he went crazy on his own crew is unknown; he was last seen driving off with the last two soldiers he left alive (um, who would get in a car with this guy after THAT?!). That means he’s still out there and on the loose!

Meanwhile, viewers are also noting the unsettling evolution of Rick’s son Carl, whose childhood has been stolen by the loss of his mother (whom he “put down” himself) and this zombie-filled world. After Carl guns down a young Woodbury guy who was surrendering after being left behind at the prison by the Governor’s gang, he gives his father a talkin’ to about this “kill or be killed world” that has everyone calling the kid … the next Governor in the making!

**Spoiler Alert, AGAIN**

Sunday night’s season finale also wrapped with the shocking death of an original cast member — Andrea (Laurie Holden) bit the dust after a controversial season for her character, who finally reunited with the group, albeit briefly, and at least twice had the chance to kill The Governor and opted not to. Bad call, blondie. Andrea joins this season’s death toll of original cast members, including Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) and Michael Rooker (Merle).

During the suspenseful hour, Andrea was bound to a chair in a locked room with Milton (Dallas Roberts), who’d been stabbed by The Governor and lay dying … as viewers anxiously waited for him to “turn” into a zombie while Andrea painstakingly attempted to pick up a pair of pliers on the floor with her feet to try and escape. She almost made it. Almost. RIP, Andrea and Milton.

Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” will return in October on AMC.
