‘The Walking Dead’: Season 3 Predictions Based On Graphic Novel Storylines'
inquisitr.com ^ | Tara Dodrill

Posted on 10/21/2012 4:40:33 PM PDT by djone

"Dedicated fans of The Walking Dead already heard that a primary character will bite the dust this season. Early money is on '****', who has not been central to the main storylines, but zombie series lovers should not count on the show’s writers to play it that safe. Some fans believe that'****' will be the dearly departed character. A review of storylines from the graphic novel series will not offer true The Walking Dead spoilers, but do give insight into major plot arcs central to main characters. Panels On Pages believes .... death is likely, but perhaps will not occur this season. The character does die in Volume 8 of TWD graphic novel

PREDICTIONS

Michonne will be the popular, breakout character.

The guys who lopped his hand off in season one will return as the governor’s henchman, and be at odds with his brother, Tivk’s henchman.

Rick’s wife will die this season.

I forgot, did Dale make it out alive last season? If so, he won’t make it through the season either.

I just loved the scene with the kid and the old man on the watchtower plugging away at zombies and enjoying it.

Observations and nitpicks from the season premiere:

1. Several references to things that happened over the winter -- so I think we're going to see a lot of flashback scenes this season; I wouldn't be surprised if tonight opens with a flashback.

2. Continuing with last winter ... at the end of last season, everybody was shocked with Rick's admissions (about killing Shane and about Jenner's secret), and Lori wouldn't talk to him. Now ... everybody respects Rick and hates Lori. Will be interesting to find out what happened over the winter.

3. Considering the way the group acted like a SWAT team in last week's episode -- plus Rick saying to Carol "You've become a pretty good shot" -- they've obviously been doing a lot of disciplined training. Thanks to "new Rick," I'm guessing.

4. Why was the oldest guy -- and only doctor -- part of the walker clearing crew??? Bad tactical planning. Regarding the emergency amputation -- an old guy with one leg missing is not going to last long in a walker world -- so it's clear that Rick is saving him only for a selfish reason, to deliver the baby.

5. If they've been on the run all winter, why did it take them 7 months to discover a prison complex that's only a mile or two away?? Also: they just "stumbled upon" this prison -- but Rick was the SHERIFF. How come he didn't know there would be a major prison there?

6. Nice touch that Rick has improvised silencers for the guns (although silencers don't really work that way).

7. After a year or so living in this world of walkers, you'd think that survivors would have learned NOT to step over a walker body unless they'd verified that it had a punctured head.

Virgil will die? No antibiotics to treat the amputation.

I hope they stick to the story line and take out Lori. She is very annoying.

Even though it was a great departure from the original comic, I wish Shane could have stayed. I know he was kind of a bad guy, but often his decisions were better than those of Rick. I didn’t care for the Season 2 version of Rick — he’s a lot better in the season 3 premiere though.

My favorite character is Daryl — also not in the original comic.

Predictions:

T-Dog will get a few more speaking lines this season.

Merle is going to cut off Rick’s arms as payback for his self-amputation in season 1.

Merle and Daryl will have a falling out.

The governor may lose several important parts of his body.

Best alternative intro to the Walking Dead.

My nit pick is why are they worried about scratches and bites when they’re already infected.

If I were Virgil, I’d be the one legged man at the ass kickin contest.

Forgot to ask. Haven’t read the graphic novels, but wonder if the series has diverged at all from them. I watch True Blood, and have read several of the books it’s based on, and the TV series has differed greatly from the books.

I agree with you....Lori can die anytime now. I hate to see Herschel go. I miss Shane, as unmanageable as he was. And they better leave Daryl alone.

I’m liking the new darker Rick.

My predictions:

Ricks wife will have a dead fetus, reborn as a zombie, claw and bite it’s way out of her, a’la Alien. MuhuhahahahAHAHAHAH!!!

Merle will return, with a rocket launcher where his hand was.

Merle and Daryl will fight to the death. Merle will lose.

Herschel will Zombify. Maggie will put him down.

The prisoners they discovered, and the group, will civil-war for the prison. The group will win. Of course, or the series would stop.

Michonne is lesbian and professes her love for Andrea. Andrea will convert from hetero.

Obama will appear at the end of season 3, zombified. Axelrod, too. Rick will happily put them down, saying in his best Clint Eastwood impression, “I didn’t VOTE for ya, either.”

Carol will seduce Darryl.

Some of these are serious, others are not.

They don’t all know they are infected yet.

And in addition, they are infected now in such a way that they turn if they die.

If they get a bite, they will turn while they are still alive, in kind of a elongated zombie-approaching hangover.

It was revealed in the last episode of last season after Rick killed Shane and he turned immediately.

- Obamacare is proven to be a complete failure
- Fast & Furious guns are used to kill a zombified Eric Holder.
- A living Barack Obama is found inside the relative safety of an insane asylum. He is sitting on the floor with his arms wrapped tightly around his knees,rocking back and forth, muttering, “I killed Bin Laden and saved GM, I killed Bin Laden and saved GM...”

Don't bother waiting. If a zombie bites Chuck Norris, he doesn't turn into a zombie. The zombie turns into Chuck Norris.

#2 That doesn't surprise me. They got to know Lori better. :P

#5 He's not from around there. Remember, the series started with his traveling to Atlanta from his home town, and who knows how much traveling they've done since then. They're not in his neck of the woods.

#7 Agreed. I thought it was pretty stupid that they hadn't learned by now not to ignore corpses they pass by. They should be stabbing them all in the head just to be sure.

Scratches and bites from Walker’s still kill, they always have, which is why they’re deathly afraid of being bitten or scratched by a Walker. The only change is that now they know that those scratches and bites aren’t what cause someone to rise again.

Scratches have never been proven to cause death from a zombie. The closest thing to that discussion is when Shane conjectured that scratches killed the two guards, to Rick, in at the City Municipal Works plant (when they were planning to drop off Randall).

Having read the comics, my predictions are:

1) Hershel has taken over Dale's plotlines, which is why he's lost the leg. He'll survive the prison arc but will end up getting killed later on in the cannibal arc.

2) Daryl will take Tyrese's place in the comics and get involved with Carol, but then cheat on her with Michonne. This'll make Carol suicidal and lead to her letting Walkers kill her.

3) While Hershel doesn't have twin daughters in the series, he still has Maggie and Beth. It'll be Beth who gets killed by the serial killer among the prisoners.

4) As in the comics, Lori will give birth to the baby safely, but both she and the baby will die when the Governor assaults the prison.

5) Now this is my big fear... Daryl will get killed when the Governor assaults the prison. If my guess is right about his taking over for Tyrese, then that means that, like Tyrese, he'll join Michonne on an ill-conceived commando raid behind enemy lines and they'll both get captured. The Governor will then decapitate Daryl with Michonne's own sword. I hope to God I'm wrong, though, because Daryl's the next best thing about the show right behind Rick. If they get rid of him then I'm not sure how I'd feel about the show after that.

The other gap is that they looked at the prison as a potential place to put the young man who they were afraid to keep around as a potential looter, the one whose neck Shane broke. They saw it on a map as a possible good place to leave a wounded guy.
