The season 4 premiere of "The Walking Dead" kicked off last Sunday. During that episode, viewers met Patrick (Vincent Martella,) a newcomer to the prison and Carl's friend. However, at the end, Patrick became sick and quickly died. He of course turned into a walker. But who discovers his condition? On Oct. 17, TV Line posted a photo that may reveal clues to answer that question.
Warning: If you do not want to know spoilers for "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 2, then stop reading.
The photo shows Karen, Tyreese's new girlfriend, shining a flashlight and she has a "be careful" look in her eyes. If you look at the bottom left, she is carrying what appears to be a knife or perhaps a baseball bat (it's a bit difficult to tell because the photo cuts off just below her hand.) The background is a tiled wall with sinks. It appears that she is in a bathroom or perhaps the shower room. That is the same place where Patrick was when he became a walker.
It seems from this photograph that in "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 2, Patrick may not make his way up to where the rest of the residents are, but perhaps Karen (Melissa Ponzio) hears a noise and cautiously goes down to investigate with a weapon, the baseball bat. Walkers can act fast, especially if they are "fresh" and since she needs a flashlight, it is most likely dark down there. She might not see what is coming until it is too late. This would certainly explain other photos for episodes 2 and 3 that show Tyreese (Chad Coleman) to appear to be grieving and the synopsis that reveals the group will be dealing with losses.
