The Walking Dead Season 4 began tonight with farmer Rick Grimes, borderline sociopathic Carl, and a whole lotta new people, but by the end of the hour we were already saying goodbye to several characters. One of whom, Patrick, died because of some unknown illness.

Season 4, Episode 2 is appropriately called “Infected”, and based on Patrick’s death, we have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of this mysterious sickness. As Carol says in the promo below, “There’s not a lot of us left.”
