We are all expecting something big for the season 4 finale, but how big is too big? Well, I guess we’ll get to find out because Andrew Lincoln says The Walking Dead season 4 finale could go too far.
Of course, Andrew Lincoln plays the main character from the show, Rick Grimes. Rick is in a bit of a pickle in this week’s episode. He is being hunted down by a group of ruthless men and headed toward a location that could be a huge trap. “The Claimers” are hot on Rick’s trail and we could see them possibly doing some unspeakable things to the Grimes family and Michonne.
When Yahoo asked if fans should be scared for Rick in the season finale, Lincoln said:
And when asked about “The Claimers” closing on and Rick and if they would meet, he gave some insight into that:
Just wait, just wait. We haven’t got long to go. They meet, yeah… they would be pretty bad trackers if they didn’t meet, is all I’m saying. But you never know. I’ve got a feeling that… well, something’s going to go down, definitely. I’ll say that.
If you’ve read the interview from Robert Kirkman about the season 4 finale, you’d know he sees some big problems coming up for Rick and his group. Here is what Kirkman said: “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.”
Shocking people is something that this episode just might do. People think they know Rick Grimes and what he is capable of, but we’ll find out a lot more about him soon.
I think the story this season begins with a man suppressing his brutality for the sake of his son. I don’t want to give too much away, but basically, you will see a side of Rick that you haven’t seen before or in a place that he goes to that he’s never been before. Like most things he’s driven by, it’s for the sake of his son. All I will say is that when I read it, I called up Scott Gimple, and I said, “Scott, we’ve always been incredibly responsible with where we go and the darkness and the brutality of the world that we inhabit. Do you think we may be going a little bit far on this?” He said, “No, no, not at all,” and when I did it, when I did the scene, like most things Scott Gimple says, he was right, and it made complete sense. It is a definite evolution.
