On "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 3, fans were stunned that Hershel took his face covering off when he was down with the sick patients, including one who was a doctor. On Nov. 1, Wet Paint debated whether he was doing something noble or if he had a death wish. Whichever way fans voted, there is a reason why he took off his face covering.

When Hershel (Scott Wilson) was down with a sick doctor, he brought him some herbal tea to try to control the symptoms. The doctor began coughing violently and ended up coughing up blood on Hershel's forehead and around his eyes. Hershel took his face covering off because he is more than likely infected now. It is easy to cover up the mouth and nose, but it is a bit more difficult to shield the eyes.
The next question is whether he will die or not. Even if the group comes back with medication in time, Hershel is older and the flu is known to mostly kill those that are very young and very old.
Do you think that Hershel will die on "The Walking Dead" season 4?
