Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" will not air until October, but that doesn't mean fans can't get a glimpse into what will happen on the show. According to a Sept. 2 report by BreatheCast, "The Walking Dead" season 4 plot lines are going to follow the comics.
Warning: If you do not want to know "The Walking Dead" season 4 spoilers or speculation, then stop reading.
Apparently the plot lines for the television series are going to follow the comics "verbatim." This is a change from how it is usually done. In the past, the show has strayed from the comics, although some things remained the same. This should be interesting how they do this since some of the key characters in the comics are dead on the show and vice versa.
Executive producer Greg Nicotero told The Hollywood Reporter,
"It's really fascinating to make those slight departures, introduce new characters and then get to a situation where you take one episode and you really stick to the source material. You'll be surprised about the way the characters lay out."
So this leads to the question of what exactly happens in the comics that will happen on the show. There are a few different possibilities. In the comic "The Walking Dead," the group was forced to leave the prison and Woodbury was also destroyed. Fans who have been paying attention to spoilers and sneak peeks know that the prison is still intact and the group will still be there on the first episode of season 4. But it has also been hinted that something will happen and they will be forced to leave.
It is safe to say that the Governor has not forgotten about the group and is still determined to get revenge. In a sneak peek, thousands of walkers are trying to make their way into the gates and some actually do make it into the prison. Some people die, although we don't know who yet. Someone has been feeding the walkers dead animals, leading them right up to the prison. That has to be the work of the Governor.
In the comics, Tyreese dies, but it seems unlikely that they would kill him off so soon in the television show. After all, he was just introduced and fans want to learn more about him. It has been revealed through previous spoilers that viewers will get to find out what kind of man he really is, which sounds like he will be around for several episodes of season 4.
What do you think of "The Walking Dead" season 4 following the plot lines of the comic? What do you think will happen?
