The return of "The Walking Dead" season 4 is only a few days away and viewers have been busy coming up with theories, finding spoilers and debating on what will happen next. On Feb. 6, Zap2It published their interview with executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. Many topics about the show were discussed, including Carol and baby Judith.

As far as baby Judith is concerned, Hurd didn't reveal any information. Recent spoilers have indicated that Andrew Lincoln said that she is dead, but his exact words were,

"I think, as you've seen in the episode, she's gone. That's it. That's the feeling for Rick and Carl."

While it sounds like she is dead, the words "that's the feeling" seem to leave an opening. Could it be that Rick and Carl think that she is dead when she might not be? Another possibility is that viewers will never find out what happened to her. Fans will just have to wait until the second half of the season to find out the answer to that question.

Carol will be returning in season 4 and fans have been wondering why Rick sent her away. Hurd said that part of the reason was because of Tyreese's rage and he was worried what would happen to her once Tyreese found out. The other part of it was Rick making a decision on his own and asserting his leadership role.

When Carol returns, viewers will see a much more developed character, but will her time on the outside change her? Will she be the same Carol viewers remember or will she be someone different?

"The Walking Dead" season 4 will return on Feb. 9.
