Despite what he told Andrea, The Governor retaliated on the prison in this week's "Walking Dead" and for Axel, the attack was fatal. He took a bullet to the head while having a sweet conversation with Carol in the yard and with that, the battle was on.

Glen Mazzara, the former "Walking Dead" showrunner who helmed the AMC drama through Season 3, told Entertainment Weekly that someone had to go and the choice was a harder one for him to handle than when Lori went earlier in Season 3.

"That was a really tough choice because we had to have the Governor exact some revenge. If he just shot up the prison without resulting in someone’s death it would have looked completely impotent ... We evaluated almost every character ... Unfortunately, the axe fell Axel’s way. »
