In the recent Walking Dead TV promo, Rick Grimes can be seen with his head stooped, hands bloody and with the look of somebody who's experienced something terrible. This led many fans to speculate that Rick was about to get the mother-of-all-beatings at Terminus - something even more savage than the one the Governor inflicted on him during the mid-season finale.
But we were wrong.
[The Walking Dead](series:201193) creator Robert Kirkman has revealed that Rick will shock us all in the finale with the violent lengths he's prepared to got to in order to survive:
This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit. And if you think you’ve seen that before, you haven’t. And the Rick Grimes that comes out of this is really going to shock people.
There are a couple of occasions in the comic book source material when Rick goes full on psycho crazy - I'm talking ripping out throats, mutilation and burning. It looks like we're going to get some of that rage and violence in the Season 4 finale.
I can't wait!
Come join me for the final Walking Dead Live Blog of the season at thewalkingdead.moviepilot.com and we can experience Rick's rage spiral together.
