Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" will be returning next month and fans are getting ready by speculating on who will be the next to die. A recent spoiler revealed that a major character will die when the series returns and that fans will be shocked and heartbroken. So who could it be? On Jan. 2, Wet Paint speculated on which character could be the next to say farewell.

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

As Robert Kirkman has said before, no character is safe on the show, but some fans believe that Maggie is going to be the major character that bites the dust. While that is a possibility, it seems more likely that Glenn will be the one to die. This speculation isn't based on his actions, but more of thinking about how Maggie will deal with his death.

She is a logical thinker and doesn't let her emotions interfere with her zombie slaying (most of the time.) No matter what she is feeling or thinking, she knows her responsibilities and those always come first. She just witnessed the execution of her father by the Governor and she had no idea where baby Judith was. She is now separated from the person she is closest to. If Glenn dies and when she finds out, she will completely lose control. There is only so much a person can take before they crack and Glenn's death could be it. It is easy to imagine her going off the deep end, behaving irrationally and going on a rampage, putting herself and others at risk.

As fans remember, Glenn is still sick, although recovering and he is very weak. Eventually that bus will run out of gas and when it does, how will he run? How will he fight? As more time passes separated from her, will it cause him to lose hope?

What do you think about the theory that Glenn could die on the second half of season 4? Do you agree with this speculation or do you think a different character will be killed?
