Guess who's coming back from the dead on The Walking Dead?

Feels like cheating, but a major character will return to this week's midseason premiere of The Walking Dead that we all thought was dunzo. Surprise! Spoilers ahead.

During a TV Guide Q&A session, this little bit of information was dropped:

Don't expect to see too many familiar faces since Rick and Carl take center stage when the AMC drama returns. While Rick heals from his beating from The Governor — whom you will see again — Carl will lose something very important to him. (No, not his innocence!)

Ah what? How is this even possible? Will he be back in walker form? Because that would just be... excessive. Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd tweeted this Examiner story, which confirmed that David Morrissey would be back, but it states that the Governor is 100% dead and that this cameo will probably just be another one of Rick's visions. Great.

Just tell us what happened to the baby already!
