"The Walking Dead" season 4 will be airing in just a few days and fans are relieved that the wait is nearly over. Since the season 3 finale, fans have been speculating on a lot of things: Carl's relationship with his father, how the Woodbury residents will deal with living at the prison and how the Governor will come back. On Oct. 9, Christian Post revealed a few interesting tidbits, including how zombies own the world now.
Warning: There are possible spoilers. If you don't want to know what may happen on "The Walking Dead" season 4, then stop reading.
A lot of time has passed since Rick woke up from his coma in season 1. He and the group have been through a lot, have met new survivors, made enemies and rescued friends. Back then, it seemed that even though there were a lot of walkers, there were also plenty of survivors hiding out. But as time went on, many survivors died. So who is winning the war? Are there still plenty of human survivors out there or do the zombies own the world now? It is reasonable to say that the latter is true.
Entertainment Weekly asked Scott Gimple if there would be a full herd or just groups of walkers. He replied,
"It will be very, very noticeable in the first few episodes. I don't want to sell that the population density of walkers in the world is, like, insane - like you can't walk through the forest without experiencing tons and tons and tons of zombies. The flip side is, we will see some herding. We will see some very arresting examples of how zombies own the world now."
It was also revealed that Beth, Carol and Tyreese will have larger roles in season 4. A trailer showed Carol teaching children how to use knives and in the last season Beth was taking care of baby Judith. It is possible that she will continue that role. Spoilers have also indicated that Michonne will be a role model for Carl and that Rick will step away from his leadership role to take care of his family. He also turned in his weapon and Carl had to turn in his as well. While it is understandable why Carl's gun was taken away, it seems strange that Rick would choose to be unprotected.
What do you think about the statement that zombies own the world? Do you have any theories on what will happen in "The Walking Dead" season 4?
