They just shared five spoilers for the second half of the season, and two of them definitely caught our attention.
The good one is that the final eight episodes of the season will feature "a lot more" of Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus). Episode 9 looks to be heavy on the Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) scenes, but the site said that will also be the case later for Mr. Dixon. "Just like with Carl, expect at least one episode, maybe two to focus almost exclusively on Daryl."
Not mad about that! But by exclusively, they probably don't mean just Daryl on his own, reading the phone book. (Although we'd still watch that episode on repeat.) Maybe it's Daryl with Beth Greene (Emily Kinney), since they were last seen leaving the prison together in Episode 8. Norman tweeted a link to Comicbook.com’s story, giving credence to their Daryl-specific episodes spoiler.
Here's the bad part, though. They also said a major character will die in the second half. That's not too shocking on its own, they acknowledge. "However, we’ve got a pretty good indication of which cast member will be dying, and let’s just say it will be a real shocker,” they add. “If what we believe is correct, then one of the main cast members who has not been killed in the comic book series will die during Season 4."
The "who has not been killed in the comic book series" thing could be read a few ways. You could also get picky about the "main cast members."
*Comic book spoilers ahead*
A lot of the people currently on screen weren't around at this point in the comics. Carol, Tyreese and baby Judith are already dead at this point. Daryl, Beth, Sasha, Lizzie, and Mika didn't exist in the comics. Bob existed, but not like this. And is he main cast? Glenn and Maggie ... well, Glenn dies in the comics, but much later on.
Daryl probably isn't going to die. They wouldn't dare ... would they? Norman did just tweet about looking forward to returning to Senoia, Georgia to visit with fans at the Woodbury Shoppe. That sorta implies his return for Season 5. Besides, THE RIOTING. Why risk it?
Do you think maybe it's ... Maggie or Michonne? They are both still alive at this point in the comic book series. Ugh. No! Or maybe Carl? Or what if they go for someone who wasn't in the comics, like Beth?
Do you have a death prediction or would you rather live in denial — or just focus on the good news about Daryl?
The Walking Dead Season 4 returns on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
