The second half of "The Walking Dead" season 4 is off to an interesting start and fans are hoping that the upcoming episodes will show a lot of drama, suspense and action. According to a Feb. 20 post by WetPaint, viewers may get their wish. Gale Ann Hurd wants everyone to know that the final six episodes are going to have a lot of tension.

Warning: If you do not want to know "The Walking Dead" season 4 spoilers, then stop reading.

Gale Anne Hurd has had a few interviews with different websites recently about season 4 of "The Walking Dead." She FearNet recently that there will be a "new evil" and after watching episode 10, titled "Inmates," some fans are wondering if it is Sgt. Abraham Ford, the Sanctuary, a new character named Gareth that will soon be introduced or if it is something or someone completely different.

Hurd also spoke to Yahoo TV about the final six episodes and how they are going to have a lot of tension. In the last episode, viewers discovered that Glenn didn't know about Hershel's execution. Tyreese also didn't know that Carol was banished from the prison. These were brought to light for a specific reason. Gale said,

“You can imagine how much tension that's going to bring as the season continues to play out.”

It was interesting to watch as Tyreese quizzed Carol on why she didn't come back with Rick after the supply run and where she went. She skirted around the subject a bit, only offering a few small bits of information, such as saying,

"There was a car..."

If they were back at the prison, chances are that Tyreese would find out, but what about now? If and when the group reunites, will Tyreese be informed of Carol taking responsibility for the burning death of his girlfriend?

When asked if the final six episodes would focus on everyone being reunited, Hurd said,

“It's also [everyone] continuing to battle demons as well. We've seen the tension that had built between Rick and Carl. We're going to continue to see how the loss of the prison, how the loss of Hershel, affects everyone, in addition to their hope of reuniting.”

One spoiler from a while back stated that Maggie was going to turn her grief into anger and depending on a lot of things, that could either help her survive or get her killed. It will probably be the same with the other group members. They will all have a lot of emotions to deal with, including the loss of Hershel, losing each other and having to flee their home, not to mention that everyone except Tyreese, Carol, Lizzie and Mika think that baby Judith is dead. People react in different ways to grief and loss. While this can make someone more brave, more driven and more determined to survive, it can destroy others.

Rick is one character that fans should be worried about. A recent promo video for "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 11 shows he and Michonne talking. He seems out of it, like he isn't "all there." He completely lost it after Lori died and now he thinks his baby girl is dead. How will this affect him? Will he be able to survive it or will the pain and loss be too much for him?

What do you think will happen in the final six episodes of "The Walking Dead" season 4?
