A couple of foreign promos are giving away spoilers for the season4 finale of “The Walking Dead” that U.S. fans may not have seen yet. According to a promo out of the Philippines as reported by Wetpaint on March 27, things look pretty grim for Carl and Rick.
This promo, which accompanies this article, does look like the finale will pattern itself at least in part after the fight between Rick Grimes and The Marauders that was depicted in issue #57 of “The Walking Dead” comic. For those who may be unfamiliar, in that episode Rick, Carl and Abraham are jumped by a group of thugs – our Marauders perhaps – and they are set on punishing Rick by raping Carl, even managing to get the boys pants off. Rick goes cannibal-crazy and bites one of the men in the neck severely enough to kill him. The other thug involved in the attempted rape runs off and Rick says, ‘He’s mine.’ He gives chase and commits a brutal act of murder.
The promo shows a Marauder with a knife to Carl’s neck, which might explain the blood smear on his cheek in the promo picture. A very messed up Rick growls, “He’s mine” and we can only assume he’s going after the guy. Writer Robert Kirkman has said that the Rick seen in the finale will “shock people.”
A promo released out of New Zealand reveals that Rick, Carl and Michonne make it to Terminus in the company of others. The 3 new people seem to know their way around. All 6 walk enter. At one point, Rick does not look happy and can be heard demanding to know “Where are our people?”
At another point in the promo, Rick appears to be holding a gun to someone’s head and we finally meet Gareth. It seems as though Gareth is living at Terminus and is involved in a dispute with Rick. Then, Rick, Carl and Michonne are being fired at by people on the roofs.
Whatever happens in the season 4 finale of “The Walking Dead,” it looks like it will be action-packed and brutal.
