Welcome back, The Walking Dead!

AMC's hit zombie drama returns tonight with the second half of season four.

When we last saw them, the Governor was dead and the prison camp was split up and headed in different directions.

I caught up with Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays Sasha on the show, yesterday at aTVfest in Atlanta to talk about what to expect in the next coming weeks.

"The fear is there and thriving, for sure," she said. "You're going to be scared."

However, she stayed mum on who or what will replace the Governor as the show's big villain.

"We have our lips sealed," Martin-Green said. "But I can say it's going to be very different from what you've seen before, from all the seasons.

"I think there's a lot for this group to deal with," she continued, adding, "There's going to have to be a new life established, new fights [and] a new struggle to find hope."

And like past seasons, the cast usually doesn't know who's getting killed off until they get a script with the bad news. (Could anyone really have predicted that the Governor would behead Hershel?)

"There's always that question with the show, but it's the nature of the beast," Martin-Green said. "I think it's great."

Not so great are some of the bumps and bruises she's endured during shooting.

"You go home sore," Martin-Green said. "You might go home dehydrated, probably dehydrated.

"I pulled my quads early in the season when it was the dead of summer and we were doing a lot of running and stabbing and killing," she continued. "It wasn't too bad. I could still walk on it. I was limping."
