'The Walking Dead' spoilers: Fate of Judith revealed by Andrew Lincoln

"The Walking Dead" returns to the air this weekend after the mid-season finale splintered the group, killed some, and sent others on their separate ways. Zap 2 It reported on Feb. 4 that one certain cast member won't be returning as actor Andrew Lincoln let the cat out of the bag that baby Judith is gone for good.

This is something most fans of the comic book expected but fans of the TV show might take with a mode of shock. See, in the comic books, Lori did not die giving childbirth, but was gunned down with her baby in her arms, bullets tearing through her and the baby both.

Robert Kirkman and the television showrunners knew they couldn't kill Judith like that on television or the television series' fans would revolt. That meant they needed to figure something else out. With Lori dying and baby Judith living, the showrunners needed to find a way to get her off the show before the survivors hit the road.

There was no way a crying baby could be used as the survivors are avoiding and fighting zombies. As fans who watched the midseason finale saw, everyone was separated from each other and had to run and Rick couldn't find his daughter anywhere before saving his son Carl and running.

As Andrew Lincoln, the actor who played Rick Grimes, said, "I think, as you've seen in the episode, she's gone. That's it. That's the feeling for Rick and Carl."

"The Walking Dead" returns to AMC this Sunday, Feb. 9, at 9 p.m. EST.
