Laurie Holden has teased Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, which sees the focus shift over to Andrea, Michonne and the debuting Governor.
As glimpsed in this promo, Michonne and Andrea witness a helicopter crash before being carted (against their will) to the Governor’s town of Woodbury.
Woodbury is initially a paradise for Andrea, Holden tells THR:
“It appears to be nirvana, a land of hope and opportunity. It’s the only place that Andrea has ever encountered that resembles the old world. It’s a dream and Andrea is desperate for a home, for a community. She’s been deathly ill on the road and it’s a safe haven.”
And with seeming paradise comes attraction between Andrea and the Governor:
“We’re really like magnets and very attracted to one another in the sense that we see what we believe to be a kindred spirit, but of course we all know that what you see on the surface isn’t always the truth. She is in awe of the fact that this man built this town and saved all these people and that he’s so eloquent and has a kindness and a self-assurance and she feels safe for the first time in her life since this all went down.”
“It’s a dream, a salvation. But you know the expression: if it’s too good to be true it is? That’s Woodbury.”
