"The Walking" Dead is only a week away and fans can hardly wait until their favorite zombie show resumes airing. On Feb. 3, Wet Paint posted some information about the first episode in the second half of season 3 that may answer some questions.
One of the questions that fans have been pondering is why episode 9 of season 3 is titled, "The Suicide King." The term is used to reference the King of Hearts in a deck of cards. It usually has an image of a king holding a knife in his head. So, what exactly does this mean for "The Walking Dead" characters?
One possibility is that the Governor may die during the warn at the prison. He may even turn into a zombie and someone may have to deal with it by sticking a knife in his head. Or, perhaps he knows he will be turning and he will stick a knife in his own head.
Another theory is that "The Suicide King" refers to Rick's mental state. As fans remember, Rick was having hallucinations after Lori died and he is losing control of the group. His fellow prison mates have lost faith in him and are unsure that he is a good leader. Not only that, but he may question his own leadership and may be tired of always having to be the guy who makes all the decisions.
Why do you think season 3, episode 9 of "The Walking Dead" was titled "The Suicide King?"
