5 Predictions for the Return of The Walking Dead
Friday 15th February The Walking Dead season 3 continues on FOX. Here’s some of our predictions for the remainder of the season.
When we left Rick and the guys at the end of season 3 episode 8, Merle and Daryl were left in a ring to fight to the death thanks to the workings of our good friend The Governor. With the remaining half of the season left to come we’re going to make some predictions as to what could happen from here.
We have already seen Rick taking a turn for the worse with the death of Lori at the start of season 3. Talking on the phone to fallen members of their group, our prediction is that this is going to get worse before it gets better.
The Merle Conundrum
Knowing that Merle and Daryl have been reunited, it doesn’t seem likely they will part again. After Merle had shown what a danger he could be, it’s unlikely the group will want him to head back to the prison with them. It’s possible Rick will give Daryl the ultimatum of being with the group at the prison or his brother. Daryl having a conscious unlike his brother Merle may well decide to leave the group, no doubt already feeling guilty for leaving his brother the first time round. However, I don’t think this is the last we’re going to see of Daryl Dixon.
Breaking Out of A Prison
Compared to the comic book and the Telltale game of the same name, the location chain of events hasn’t gone in the same path. Perhaps they’re just mixing it up a little. The Governor will end up driving them out of the prison, my prediction is it will happen just before the end of the season. In typical Walking Dead fashion, the finale of season 3 will be the group stumbling upon a new haven. Could the next location the group take on be the motel from the video game?
First A Leg, How About an Arm Next
We have already seen the brutal force of Hershel having his leg chopped off after getting bitten. Is it possible someone’s arm is next? How about Rick, he’s got some good arms on him. Like in the Telltale game Lee had his arm cut off, and in the comic Rick’s hand got severed. It’s something of a possibility for this season.
In season 1, we watched Rick emerge from a coma, stumble out of the hospital and find some other survivors Morgan and his son Duane. He ever so kindly gave them his police vehicle so they could reach a refugee camp in Atlanta. Remember them? Maybe Morgan and Duane have survived and find the group somehow. Although this one may be a long shot for the remaining episodes of this season, maybe this is one for season four?
Only time will tell what will happen before the end of season 3. We have hope that whatever it is, it’s going to be good. What do you think will happen? Let us know below!
The Walking Dead returns to our screens on Friday 15th February at 10pm on FOX.
