“The Walking Dead” fans just can’t get enough news about their favorite show and its characters. On Dec. 29, Wetpaint shared some serious spoilers for the remainder of season 4 – some good and some perhaps not so good.
According to their source, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) will figure much more prominently in the next 8 episodes. We’ve all heard about how episode 9 is going to be all about Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs). Apparently Daryl will be getting 1 or 2 episodes that will focus on him, too.
Since Daryl was last seen in the company of Beth Greene as they fled the prison, it’s possible she could figure prominently as well, depending on when the episode occurs and who else they may have come across by the time the episode airs.
Now about that shocking death…
Wetpaint’s source says a ‘major character’ will die in the second half of the season. The source was quoted as saying “we’ve got a pretty good indication of which cast member will be dying, and let’s just say it will be a real shocker. If what we believe is correct, then one of the main cast members who has not been killed in the comic book series will die during Season 4."
Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes has spoken about a “controversial” episode. It could be he was referring to the episode with the shocking death.
It’s tough to call it at this point because the bit about someone dying on the show that hasn’t “been killed in the comic series” is open to interpretation. You also have to define “major character.”
Comic fans will know that by this time in the story line, Carol, Tyreese and baby Judith are already dead. Others in the show like Daryl, Beth, Sasha, Lizzie, and Mika weren’t in the comics at all. And while Glenn does dies in the comics, it isn’t until much later. It’s really wide open at this point.

“The Walking Dead” will return to AMC on Sunday, Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. Until then, please check back often for more updates, news and spoilers.
