On the season 4 premiere of "The Walking Dead," fans discovered one of the "new threats" that the group is facing. The mysterious virus has suddenly appeared and is affecting the animals as well as humans. At the end of the episode, Patrick (Vincent Martella) died and turned into a walker. So how long will this mystery illness last? On Oct. 16, Entertainment Weekly reported that actor Andrew Lincoln stopped by their radio studio (Sirius XM, channel 105) to talk about the illness.
It turns out that the mysterious virus in season 4 of "The Walking Dead" is not going to slow down anytime soon. Lincoln said,
“You wait and see where it heads. It puts far more pressure on the group, and something terrible happens within this story arc that divides the group irrevocably.”
What could happen that would be so terrible that it would divide the group? Does it have something to do with the spoiler that revealed that somebody Rick trusts will betray him? How does the mysterious virus play into the group being divided?
Andrew Lincoln also said that each character has a "very satisfying story arc."
Do you have any theories on how the mysterious virus in season 4 of "The Walking Dead" will cause something terrible to happen? Does that simply refer to people dying or did Andrew Lincoln mean something else? How will this cause a division within the group?
