              Rick's death in Season 4?

              I stumbled across this following article on the web concerning Walking Dead season 4:

              Would Robert Kirkman and the producers on “The Walking Dead” ever make the move to kill off who is effectively the star of the show? When we first wrote about the people who we find to be untouchable in the world of the show(not the comics), Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes was at the top of the list. Viewers like to be invested in the story of a hero, and with there only being so much time available in an hour, you don’t really get a great opportunity to get to know all of the other characters.
              So what does Kirkman have to say in contrast to this notion? Speaking in a chat with fans on an AMC blog, the source writer expressed that he really had no fear killing off Rick, or any other character:

              We’ve been saying that no one is safe on this show, and I wouldn’t rule out seeing the death of Rick Grimes at almost any point.”
              While the “no one is safe” argument is a probably a smart one to make, there are some characters that this show can’t stand to lose more than others. Rick’s death would be met with shock; meanwhile, we see a Daryl death met with anger and a Glenn / Maggie death with hopelessness. The goal in killing off someone is to create a reaction, but always one that still encourages the viewer to want to tune in to see what happens next. You may get that reaction with these characters, The Governor, or even a fan favorite in Michonne, but it’s also a risk in that you may alienate some fans.

              http://cartermatt.com/56390/the-walk...ncolns-future/

              Of course, Robert Kirkman and the rest of the crew have been saying that, "No one's safe." It's been said for a long time (do they think we aren't taking that statement literally?), so Rick may survive this season. On the other hand, the crew has been saying that one of the focuses of Season 4 will be Rick and Carl's relationship. This seems to point to the fact that they may kill off Rick so they can see how Carl is affected by it. However, if they really do kill off Rick, I'm going to be very angry. Rick is the main protagonist and we are following the story through his eyes for the most part. Although I have read on other websites that Robert Kirkman is not against killing off Rick Grimes in the Comic book and that at one point he was planning on doing it in issue #6 so they could explore Carl growing up without a father in his life.

              What do you guys think? Do you think they will kill Rick in Walking Dead Season 4 and how would you feel if it happened?

              I dont think they would kill rick next season. I understan noone is safe but it is his story more than anyone elses. I think if most tv shows have a lifespan of 7 seasons he may die in season 6. Or the season next to last. I dont think any single character so far is strong enough to hold the show now.

              Robert Kirkman is obviously sticking with the whole "No One Is Safe" line.....No way is Rick getting killed anytime soon if at all imo.....and if he does it would be like the last or second to last episode of the series....i mean this is his story.....Kirkman is just trying to stir the pot a bit since there is such a long hiatus till next season and keep us on our toes....i see nothing of the sort happening to the lead actor.

              "No One Is Safe" I Agree , but kill Rick don't make a sense now . Maybe in season 5 / 6 . I think other characters will be dead . Example : Hershel , Sasha , Woodbury people , Beth .

              Good grief-this isn't happening anytime in the near future. We've got a better chance of seeing God. Or seeing the Cubs win the World Series(apologies to Cubs fan 'cause they are great!)

              This is the story of Rick, the day he dies, the series dies with it.

              Agreeing with angeluxy here. I don't think this series as it's constructed right now would do very well without Rick. If they made a NEW TWD, with new survivors and a different story, of course we could go with that. But IMO, Rick is the bread and butter of this show, cut the head off, and the snake dies.

              I don't know how many times I've said it, but if Rick dies anytime before the final season (and at that, within the final couple episodes), the series dies with him. I understand one of the things adding to the originality of the show is in taking risks, but you don't build up this much screen time around a main character just to do him in like that. And if Rick's gonna die at all, when the time is right, I want it to happen in a way such as it does below:


              • Carl continues down a dark path from where he leaves off at the end of Season 3. Over time, he evolves into Governor Jr. or something else along those lines. We see him murdering the kid in the back of the van, like in the comics, among other things throughout the series. Perhaps as he reaches his worst point, he even kills Judith. Each one of these things has an effect on his psyche for the worst, and eventually, it culminates around the time Carl is 18 years old. From there, we see Rick coming to the realization that Carl has to be put down for the greater good of the group, as well as his own safety since Carl has become completely cold and unreasonable towards him even. It ends similar to the Rick/Shane confrontation, but with Rick (and possibly even Carl) dying. Or Rick dying, Carl surviving, and the series ending without a doubt whatsoever of there being no hope for humanity.
              • Carl snaps out of his current state of mind and is completely overcome with guilt from killing the boy, his own perceived actions that resulted in Dale's death, or whatever else that has happened/may yet happen in the series. There are ups and downs, but it's something that sticks with him and eventually results in his suicide (or a lack in judgement that gets him killed; something). Rick, having lost Lori, and possibly Judith by this point, completely regresses into insanity beyond the point of return. From here, there's definitely a fork in the road where he could go. One direction being that he becomes everything he's always fought against, now having nothing to live for, and essentially being in the same shoes as The Governor following Penny's death. He does things similar to The Governor that, after a period of sympathizing and trying to intervene, eventually make them realize that he's hopeless. From there, he's taken out by someone within, or a number of people within the group. Another direction is more simple, in that he just gives up, kills himself, or if there's another huge villain at the time, offers himself up for sacrifice. To which extent he's the one that gets Glen'd, or Tyreese'd or something.
              • Another possibility is the idea of dealing with a terminal illness, such as Cancer in the Apocalypse. And this could carry on throughout the entire last season as to properly build up his departure. Say in the second to last season, in it's final episodes he starts developing a cough, or some other symptoms that he blows off as stress, a cold, or something. But at the Season Finale, or in the Season Premiere, he passes out. Whoever the medic is at the time, in the following episode, somehow determines that he has all the symptoms. The final season therefore revolves around him struggling to stay alive as long as he can. By the end, or close to it, he's on his death bed, or he's in another coma and near death. The final goodbyes are said, Rick passes away, and he's either left to turn into a Zombie, shot, or as to add a really powerful, heartfelt ending, his passing away evolves into a scene where he's reunited with his family in the afterlife, or he wakes up in the modern world from his coma to find that the apocalypse was all a dream (stupid, but not out of the realm of possibility). Or it goes into a scene where the future of the group is basically left to chance. Or left ambiguous. Such as, at the time of his death, there is a seemingly overwhelming hoard of Zombies practically at their doorstep. With the group facing them, and the hoard closing in, the camera pans out. End series.
