Who will be the one to take a bullet--or a bite in the neck--during the season finale?

I don't know of any actual spoilers for Sunday night's finale, but I think at least two people on this list will not survive. Milton and Allen are probably toast. And someone from Hershel's clan is probably going to be killed off, because there was way too much happiness with Glenn and Maggie getting married. :-( JMO.

This is not a spoiler thread, but if you do have any spoilers, please put a warning before posting. Thanks!

Since the walking dead keep on walking, I see the question “does anyone die” as being irrelevant. Of course I don’t watch the show.

I’m going to go with Maggie or Glenn for one of the casualties for the simple reason that lazy writers always go for tragedy. Nothing would be much more tragic than one of the two of them dying right after they just got engaged.

Ah, thank you, I’ll remember that for the next time I run into any “walking dead.” H’mmmm does that also apply to government bureaucrats? Or is their lack of a brain and still able to walk mean that we can never defeat them?

Ok, I am going with The Governor. I saw him on the Talking Dead last week. He has gained a lot of weight in his face. Don’t think he can lose that weight before shooting starts for Season 4. So, I think he is out. Hence he has not kept himself in shape.

Possible Spoiler*****

Rick — no (main character)
Andrea — no (although the way she has been acting
this season, I wouldn’t mind)
Michonne — no
Glenn — maybe
Maggie — maybe (more likely than Glenn)
Carol — yes
Hershel — show’s moral compass, but maybe anyway
Baby Judith — no way, she represents hope for the future and no matter how outrageous this show is, it will never happen

Beth — maybe
Martinez — definitely
Milton — yes, the Governor will kill him
The Governor — definitely

Daryl — 90% no (if they kill him, the will lose too much
audience, but they might do it anyhow for shock value...also, he makes rednecks seem like good people and Hollywood doesn’t like that)

Tyreese — no (He will be Michonne’s love interest next season....only possible threat to Daryl because in the comic he is Rick’s right hand man, a position that Daryl, no extant in the comic, occupies right now.)
Sasha (Tyreese’s sister) — yes, she already has signed for a full-time acting gig for next year
Allen — yes
Carl — No way

You’re right about baby Judith.

Somebody dies while saving her.

To kill that little innocent would be beyond terrible.

Okay, if I were to take a guess, I would say: Carole, Herschel, Beth.

However, I know what the book says about the end of their stay at the prison; but, I'm hoping a few more characters get out than is depicted there.

>> How come there's never a show that shows things from the viewpoint of the ZOMBIES. I WANT MORE ZOMBIECENTRIC PROGRAMMING <<

Heh. TV show from the point of view of a zombie. That would be fun.

There are currently about #437,652,903 TV shows and movies out there about a "zombie apocalypse". How people can get excited about The Walking Dead and zombies biting random people every week is beyond me. George Romero milked that tired idea to death.

I only enjoy zombies when they put a new spin on the idea, like Zombieland making it a zany comedy/satire with Bill Murray and having specific "rules" for surviving zombie attacks pop up on screen throughout the movie. WHAT does Walking Dead do that hasn't been done a million times before? None of its fanboys can explain to this to me.

The "zombies" we see in movies and TV shows like that aren't even real zombies. The "traditional" intrepretation of a zombie in western culture was always a dead person brought back by voodoo or something that mindlessly obeys the orders of whoever brought it to life, and does their bidding. Only since the 1960s Romero zombies has it come to mean a rotting group of leaderless corpses stumbling around looking to eat humans. It's funny the Romero purists hate zombies who eat brains, too. If you're going to reinvent them to eat flesh for no specific reason, there's nothing wrong with a variation that craves human brains.

Sorry, had to rant about this ridiculous zombie craze. I have zero interest in Walking Dead. If I want to watch zombies eat people, the 1985 classic Return of the Living Dead is infinitely more interesting.

She's toast. Both the baby and whoever is holding her are going to die. My prediction is that Sunday nights episode is a bloodbath, and we will be saying goodbye to a lot of the actors. I didn't put Maggie and Glenn in my original post of deaths; but, only because I have become very attached to them. But, I'm thinking they may be on their way out. Which is sad, because Glenn has been with us as long as Rick. It was Glenn who got Rick out of that tank and to safety in the first episode.

What does TWD do that hasn't been done before?

It's good. Very good. Not all of the ZA films and series are good. This one is top of the line talent, wonderful effects. I love ZA films, I hate fast zombies, I love slow zombies that you actually have a shot at surviving.

I have zero interest in Walking Dead.

I understand your POV because it was also mine. However, hubby and I were bored one evening and I had heard it was a good show, so we tried the first episode; wham, we are hooked.

It is bloody, it is gory; but, it is also a very character driven piece. For something based on a graphic novel, the characters a very well done and interesting and the writing and story is addictive.

I sure hope it’s not the baby. That would be just so sad. But on the other hand it would be interesting to see if she turns, being born after the ZA. I think the governor wants to kill her because of what happened to his daughter. He has no soul so he should become a walker.

Yep, and neither of you answered the question "what does it do that HASN'T been done in every other zombie apocaylse film/TV series" (of which there are millions out there)

It's violent. (check) It's gory. (check) It has well-written characters. (check) Yep. Seen it, seen it, seen it.

For starters... Night of the Living Dead (and its remake), Dawn of the Dead (and its remake), 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, Pet Sematary, Return of the Living Dead, Return of the Living Dead 2, Return of the Living Dead 3, Dead Alive, Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness, Re-Animator, Bride of Re-Animator, Beyond Re-Animator...

every single one of them was a well-written and well-received zombie film that contained the traits you mentioned. I thoroughly enjoyed a lot of those movies. I enjoy steak and potatoes too, but not steak and potatoes for dinner every night.

"It's Good"

Because it's fanboys say it is. At the Christopher Nolan fanboys had actual reasons why it was different and better than Burton's Batman. (though amusingly, they would change the reasons everytime a new Nolan movie came out)

I don't think so. As the series evolves, I believe he's going to be one of those perpetual bad guys who will peridically surface in future episodes as he pursues the clan.

Walking Dead does one big thing, which is basically to solve the “problem” Robert Kirkman (creator of the comic) always had with the Romero movies. It delves into what happens next. He loves the Romero movies, but he wanted to see a long term story, see the characters change, who lives, who dies, who flakes, who learns. That’s the draw. If you don’t like the genre it’s not a draw for you, but if you do it’s pretty awesome. The comic’s been going almost 10 years now, and we still keep asking “what happens next”.

Oh and Romero didn’t change zombies. In Night Of the Living Dead he called them “ghouls”, in fact they haven’t been called zombies in any of his zombie movies. It really happened when movie makers started ripping off his movies, THEY called them zombies and it stuck.

The reason some Romero purists hate brain eating zombies is actually because they’ve taken up a bit of a personal battle for George. John Russo helped him make Night, and they had a bit of a falling out. During the course of the falling out Russo managed to keep the rights to the “living dead” phrase (notice Romeros further zombie movies they’re just “dead” not living). Russo went on to produce Return of the Living Dead, which was the first movie where zombies specifically targeted brains (and even said it). Most fans of the genre don’t care, some folks are weird and like to fight other people’s fights.

You apparently have not watched any of TWD. I didn’t watch the first season. Then, I read numerous comments about it. I noticed the first season was up on Netflix, so I thought I would check it out.

For this series, it the characters and their interactions that make the show a hit. The zombies are just background.

Watch episode 1 from season 1. Then, you will have a better idea of the show and more credibility in your critiques.

I got hooked on Doctor Who a couple years back. Wacky sci-fi series about time traveling to new places every week in a phone booth. I've really only seen that done before in the Bill & Ted movies. But if we had a zillion other movies and TV shows available about wacky time traveling phone booths, I don't think another one on the market would excite me too much.

Let me try to answer that for the rest of us:

First of all, nobody here is obligated to answer your accusational and argumentative question.

Second, since you obviously aren't a fan of WD, what the hell are you doing here?

Thirdly, and last of all, if you don't like my answers then don't ask stupid questions.

Nobody asked you to drop by....and nobody likes a buttinsky........Sheesh!

If you want attention then take your pants off and walk down the street...........

but he wanted to see a long term story, see the characters change, who lives, who dies, who flakes, who learns

And the characters have changed, especially Rick. The episode where Rick, Michonne and Carl go on a car trip had one scene that just struck me. Well, two really.

First they pass by the hitchhiker and don't stop to help. Everyone in the car is just stonefaced, no emotion at all. I thought, wow, 1st Season Rick would have stopped to help this guy. Then, coming back, a bloody smear on the highway where he had been standing and his backpack lying there. They pass by, and then back up, grab the backpack, and keep on going.

This said a lot about how the characters had changed. Really, the coldness of those acts. So, now, in Season 3, we have a different story because the events have created different people than we started out with.

My hubby says that this program is like the alien invader movies from the 50's. They were about a fear of communism and what it represented. He thinks this show is hitting a chord with people by letting us live out our fears of total societal collapse.

>> Second, since you obviously aren't a fan of WD, what the hell are you doing here? <<

Trying to figure out why the hell people worship this TV series. You are free to comment on a TV series I like, I can explain what makes the show stand out besides "it has good characters" are other such vague comments that could apply to any TV series.

Thank you for putting, so succintly, what I was thinking. I just decided responding would only keep it going. I, too, often wonder why people who are not interested in the topic, click onto a thread and then get snarky with people. Just pass it by if you are not interested.
