The final episode of "The Walking Dead" season 4 is titled "A" and unlike other episode titles, it doesn't give viewers an idea of what will happen. However, a synopsis gives some clues and spoilers as well as interviews give fans a better idea of what to expect when the season finale airs this Sunday. It has been reported that Rick will shock viewers on the upcoming episode, but what exactly does that mean? On March 26, "The Walking Dead" season 4 finale spoilers were posted to Reddit and if they are accurate, it will be an episode that will be talked about for a long time.
Warning: If you do not want to know "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 16 spoilers, then stop reading.
The synopsis for "A" reads,
“Many paths collide; Rick faces sheer brutality; the group struggles to survive.”
The paths that will collide obviously means that people will meet. Maggie and Glenn were reunited and their groups made it to Terminus in the last episode. The others are headed there, but haven't arrived yet. Daryl joined up with Joe's group, the Claimers, who are also headed to the sanctuary, but they are more interested in getting revenge with Rick rather than having a safe place to stay. Since the synopsis says "many" paths will collide, most if not all of the groups will probably end up at Terminus.
As for the "sheer brutality," a sneak peek of "A" shows that Rick will definitely be in a dangerous situation. After 4x15 came to an end, AMC aired a preview of the season finale that showed Rick bloody. He looked anxious, frantic and fearful. Then several spoiler reports stated that viewers are going to be "shocked" by what Rick does on the season 4 finale. So what exactly will he do that will be so shocking?
A post on Reddit claims that one of the Claimers will try to sexually assault Carl, which means that the two groups will meet. Where they will meet is unknown. A sneak peek clip shows Carl running towards a voice calling for help, so it sounds like they will not meet at Terminus, but by Carl foolishly taking off towards a man's voice yelling for help.
In the comics, Carl is nearly raped by a member of a group of bandits. Those that have read the comics say that Rick saves him and if the Reddit post is accurate, then at least this part of the season finale will closely follow the comic storyline. The "A" episode will have Rick save Carl from the attack and he will do the unimaginable... rip out the man's throat with his teeth.
It was recently reported that AMC was "very worried" about the second half of "The Walking Dead" season 4. If the source is correct and Carl will be nearly raped and Rick will rip out a guy's throat with his teeth, then this season finale will be one that viewers will be talking about for a long time.
"The Walking Dead" season 4 finale will air on March 30.
