Spoiler Alert! What to Expect after The Walking Dead Season 4 Mid-Season Finale
03 Dec 13
Last episode of The Walking Dead season 4 mid-season finale was kind of depressing. So many horrible things happened that we were struggling to get back to the real world without moping around. The Gov’s ironic demise, the prison takedown, Hershel’s brutal death and baby Judith’s shocking ending are more than enough to keep us psyched for the next 8 episodes that will start on February. So, it’s time to let go of your grief and get ready for what’s in store for the remaining season 4 of The Walking Dead.
The way our survivors fled the prison in different groups indicates that they’re going to be separated and have to find a way to find each other. Episode 9 is going to pick up with a few of the group. But the most definite is probably Rick and Carl who were leaving on foot. The episode will most likely to follow them, especially after they lost Judith (sobs).
Lots of Comic Book Stuff in Episode 9
If you follow The Walking Dead comic books religiously, you wouldn’t want to miss episode 9. A while ago, Robert Kirkman confirmed that episode 9 will be the episode that’s closest to a direct adaptation from the comic book. And Andrew Lincoln added that episode 9 is Carl’s episode. Well, if you’re a fan of the comics, you have probably figured out what they’re talking about.
Eugene, Rosita, and Abraham Are Coming
New major characters are coming in, possibly in episode 10: Sgt. Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Dr. Eugene Porter. Although these three are original comic book’s characters, their story in the TV show will be very different than the comics. Scott Gimple, the showrunner said that these characters tell a “version” of this group’s story.
The Return of Morgan Jones
Rick’s old acquaintance, Morgan Jones is going to appear this season. After the emotional toll he went down last we saw him, we can’t really imagine how he would show up. But our guess is that Rick will somehow return to his hometown and maybe pay Morgan a visit. Rick may also persuade Morgan to join the group. After all the loss, they surely need more manpower and it’s kind of sad for Morgan to live alone.
In the comic books, Rick and the group get into an altercation with The Hunters on the road to Washington, D.C. We’re actually not sure whether if the cannibals are going to show up this season, but as one of the most viciousvillains in the comics, The Hunters will probably be featured in the show at some point.
We still remember that radio message broadcasting about sanctuary, which almost cost Daryl & his friends their lives by bumping into massive horde of walkers. It would be very annoying if the season wrapped up without figuring out the source of that broadcast. And although we want it so much to be a safe zone, it could also be a lure to trap people set up by groups like The Hunters.
These possible storylines for the remaining episodes of season 4 of The Walking Dead sound like a great way to start off the year. We just wish February would come sooner!
