The Walking Dead: Will Rick Eventually Lose His Mind?


Rick Grimes is teetering on the brink, and he may end up eventually losing his mind before next season is over. 

The Walking Dead is in it’s offseason and fans are going to have to wait until the fall for more episodes. But in that time period, numerous questions are kicking around in our heads — like what in the hell is up with Rick’s mental state?

He seemed to get back to where he needs to be in the season five finale, but there are still a lot of questions that we have about where he’s at inside of his head and what he is going to do next.

This past season saw Rick for from a crazy guy, to a crazy guy with a beard before going back to being a crazy guy with no beard. Rick has seen lot in his day and it’s clearly starting to weigh on his mind constantly. After all, let’s not forget that he hacked Gareth to death in a church — juxtaposition.

In addition to that, he had no problem shooting a guy in cold blood after running him with his car, almost killed Dawn and was the craziest thing to hit the Alexandria Safe Zone since Pete. Still, we’re pulling for Rick and this might have to do with the fact that we see so much of ourselves in him.

Rick is just a father trying to survive in the apocalypse and keep the people around him alive. That’s a lot of stress on just a normal guy and if he goes crazy and loses his mind, we can’t really blame him all that much.
