The season 4 finale of "The Walking Dead" is quickly approaching and with the drama that happened on "The Grove," fans are curious what can be expected next. On March 19, Entertainment Weekly had an interview with executive producer Gale Anne Hurd who revealed what viewers can expect on the final episodes of season 4.
Warning: If you do not want to know "The Walking Dead" season 4 spoilers or fan speculation, then stop reading.
Hurd said that certain characters are going to be pushed to the limit and making choices, such as what to do to survive. She also said that each character will have to decide how much they are willing to compromise their humanity.
Rick is one person on the show who has repeatedly been put to the test and it seems that he will once again be pushed to the limit. In a separate conversation, Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly that if fans think they have seen him pushed before, they really haven't. This time it will be the "absolute" limit.
Episode titles and spoilers can also reveal some more information on what to expect on the final episodes of this season.
The title for "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 15 is "Us" and while it sounds good, the synopsis doesn't. It reads,
"Survivors rely on brutality and faith."
A sneak peek for the upcoming episode, which will air on March 23, shows Joe's group beating and kicking someone that appears to be Daryl. Viewers know that his new group is no good and many speculated that he would be in some trouble with them.
As for faith, that could describe Beth's situation. She was kidnapped and driven away in a car that had a white cross on the back of it. Did they take her because of their "faith" or will she have to use her faith to survive?
Lauren Cohan recently said in an interview that both Daryl and Beth's situations are scary and worrisome. She did mention that Beth's kidnapping would not be resolved quickly.
The season finale is titled "A" and the episode description is,
"Many paths collide; Rick faces sheer brutality; the group struggles to survive."
"A" doesn't really give any hints but some say that it might stand for the Alexandria Safe Zone. But there is also the question of a new enemy. It has been teased since the mid-season break that the second half of season 4 would bring a "new evil." Could "A" be this new enemy? Is that what is meant by the words "sheer brutality" or will Rick and the rest of the characters be pushed to the edge and do whatever they have to in the name of survival?
The next episode of "The Walking Dead" will air on March 23.
