'The Walking Dead': Scott Gimple says there will be a new romance in season 5

"The Walking Dead" is not just about zombies. As fans will tell those who have never watched the show, it is about survival and relationships. Fans have already seen a few characters get together on the show and on April 18, ComicBook.com revealed that "The Walking Dead" season 5 will have another romance.

Since most of the characters on the show are single, it's difficult to say who will be the next one to find a relationship. Many fans are wondering if Daryl will find love. He had a bond with Carol and then in the second half of season 4, he and Beth seemed to get closer. "The Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple did say on "Larry King Now" that eventually Daryl will find romance, but wouldn't say if it would be in the upcoming season or not.

However, he did say that there will be a romantic relationship when the show returns in October 2014. Without giving any other clues, all fans can do is speculate on which character will find love. While Daryl is always a possibility, some fans think that Rick and Michonne could end up becoming a couple.

WetPaint reported that Rick and Michonne's relationship could go in "interesting directions." Robert Kirkman said that the two characters felt alone at the beginning of last season, which created a bond. He also stated that their relationship with Carl has brought them closer.

A few viewers are speculating that when Beth returns, she will have found somebody to be with. Scott Gimple did say recently that when she comes back it will be both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Could the heartwarming part mean that she will bond with someone? It's hard to imagine finding love with a kidnapper, but perhaps someone saves her or maybe she escapes and meets someone while on the road? There is the possibility that if she ends up reuniting with the group, she could end up forming a relationship with Burton, who will be introduced in season 5.

What do you think about another romantic pairing on "The Walking Dead" season 5? Who do you predict will find love when the show returns? Do you think Daryl will end up with Carol or Beth? Could Rick and Michonne end up getting together? Or do you have another romantic theory in mind, like Beth getting together with someone while she is missing?
