‘The Walking Dead’ possible spoilers: Why is AMC worried about second half?

See also

The Walking Dead” will be here in less than a week. It is one of AMC’s top ranking shows, so why would the network be anything else than excited for its return? On Monday, February 3, Wet Paint released an article stating that AMC is “very worried” about the second half of the walker apocalypse show. Note that spoilers are below if you are not caught up to “The Walking Dead” or don’t wish to know anything about what’s to come.

Robert Kirkman spoke with fans at Amazing Arizona ComicCon and said, “I will say that the show will continue to get a little bit bleak at times and a little bit darker as the world progresses, and as things get a little bit more dire as they have in the comic. So we’re not going to be pulling any punches, and there’s a lot of stuff coming up that AMC is very worried about, which makes me happy.”

Hmm, what could they be worried about that would make Kirkman happy? Here are some theories from the source and fans:

“The Walking Dead” has been hated on for being extremely gory at times and its downright spine chilling moments. The show isn’t shy about cutting off people’s heads, slicing walkers, featuring the dead chomping on human remains, eating rotting flesh, and more. This has caused AMC to be on fire for what they feature on their network. So could a possibility be that there are more gruesome scenes to come? You would think it’s pretty tough to top what they have shown so far, but production never ceases to amaze us.

Wet Paint suggests that if Judith isn’t dead (and she most likely isn’t, as several theories suggest that she is with Tyreese and the girls), she might be killed in the coming episodes. Killing a baby on-camera would certainly raise some eyebrows. Or could AMC fear the reaction of fans if favorite Daryl Dixon were to die? “…perhaps about anything too graphic if they do delve into The Hunters, a group of cannibals. Or – and this is the topic of some fan debate – what if they decide to follow the child killer stoyline of the comics, with a new take on Billy/Ben,” the source adds.

Andrew Lincoln has teased an episode coming up by calling it the “most controversial” they’ve ever done. What could be more controversial from what has already been shown? We can’t wait to find out!

“The Walking Dead” Season 4 returns with Episode 9, "After," on Sunday, February 9.
