"Do I want to keep David Morrissey? Yes! Do we? I can't tell you," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd recently talked about the Governor's fate on the show. "There are so many colors to his performance. In the comics, he's pretty one-note, but here, he's got so much more humanity."

Andrea, on the other hand, wasn't as lucky as the Governor. She was killed by the Governor in the March 31 outing. Admitting that her character's death "was rather unexpected," believed the decision to kill off Andrea was "story-driven. It does propel the story forward."

That what she stood for and believed in will continue to resonate in the hearts and minds of the people she left behind, because we all learn and grow from one another. I do love that the finale ended [with a shot of] a cross, because I feel that it's a time for new beginnings and a spiritual awakening. Let the healing begin."

Andrea is the latest character to be killed off in "The Walking Dead" season 3. 's Merle and Dallas Roberts' Milton also met the demise in the same season.

"The Walking Dead" is expected to return with the fourth season in October.
