"The Walking Dead" season 4 finale is airing tonight and fans are hyped up for the episode titled "A." While there are sneak peeks and spoilers revealing a bit on what will happen, nobody knows exactly what is going to go down. On March 29, Yahoo spoke to Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes on the zombie series and it turns out that the writers may have gone too far on "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 16.

Warning: If you do not want to know "TWD" season finale spoilers, then stop reading.

All of the spoilers, sneak peeks and rumors make it seem that the season 4 finale is going to be extreme. Robert Kirkman recently said that Rick is going to be pushed to his limit and if viewers think they have seen it before with him, they haven't. So what does Lincoln have to say about this? He told Yahoo,

"I think the story this season begins with a man suppressing his brutality for the sake of his son. I don't want to give too much away, but basically, you will see a side of Rick that you haven't seen before or in a place that he goes to that he's never been before. Like most things he's driven by, it's for the sake of his son."

There is a rumor that a man is going to try to sexually assault Carl and Rick will stop him by ripping out his throat with his teeth.

Andrew also had this to add,

"All I will say is that when I read [the script], I called up Scott Gimple, and I said, "Scott, we've always been incredibly responsible with where we go and the darkness and the brutality of the world that we inhabit. Do you think we may be going a little bit far on this?" He said, "No, no, not at all," and when I did it, when I did the scene, like most things Scott Gimple says, he was right, and it made complete sense. It is a definite evolution."

Viewers can expect to see the groups arrive at Terminus, Joe and the Claimers will come face to face with Rick and an international screen shot shows a man holding a knife to Carl's throat. There is also the issue of what is really going on at Terminus. It seems too good to be true and some fans are predicting that it is actually a base camp for the Hunters, a group of cannibals.

"The Walking Dead" season 4 finale airs tonight, March 30.
