The actors and producers of The Walking Dead are well-aware that fans have been speculating about what happens in the Season 4 finale for months now, and with just hours to go before the March 30th ep the fan theories are only intensifying.
We’ve heard it all, from Beth Greene’s (Emily Kinney) grisly fate (she’s the meal Mary offered everyone when they got to Terminus!) to Bob Stookey’s (Larry Gilliard Jr.) big secret (he’s immune to walker bites!), but apparently one TWD cast member has read “all” of the finale predictions and has yet to come across one that has the correct info.
When asked about the Season 4 finale, “A” Danai Gurira (Michonne) told DigitalSpy.com, “I've read all [the] predictions and none of them are right. No one is going to be able to figure out this ending so it's going to be a really exciting thing to watch people respond to!”
We know Danai said that she’s read all of the finale predictions, but in our opinion that’s a near impossible task. The TWD fanbase is a rabid bunch (in the best way possible) and we bet there are tons of new theories cropping up everyday — there’s just no way Danai can keep up with everything.
We’ve been warned about the “brutality” of Episode 16 for quite some time now, and although that buzz word initially left us fearing for Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) life, we’re now wondering if the former cop could actually be the one dishing out these brutal blows. We pretty much know that a face-off between Rick and head marauder Joe (Jeff Kober) is coming but the more we think about it, the more we doubt that Rick is the one we should be worrying about.
In the comics, Rick, Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) venture back to Rick’s hometown and come across a group of bandits who threaten to rape Carl because Rick attempted to fight them. Rick and Abraham manage to fight back and kill the guys, with Rick even biting one of them on the neck. Bitting a dude on the neck is pretty “savage,” right? That’s another word that’s been used to describe the finale.
So there may be some things we don’t know, as Danai suggests, but we like to think that a few of our theories have a place in the Season 4 finale.
Do you doubt all of the fan theories you’ve seen so far, or are some of them bound to be true? Tell us what you think below!
The Walking Dead Season 4 finale airs Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
