Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead are still trying to wrap their heads around the fact series star, Andrew Lincoln is leaving the show next season.
Now word is the character of Rick Grimes will, in fact, be killed off. This news further infuriates fans who are still raw over the complete mishandled Carl Grimes’ storyline. The whole story of the Walking Dead was to tell how a father (Rick) would do anything to save his son (Carl). With both Grimes dead, is the show relegated to just a generic zombie show?
That remains to be seen.
Spoiler-ish rumors suggest Lincoln will exit the series in episode 5 of season 9. In a storyline that suggests the survivors having to contend with another herd of Walkers, Rick is said to face his demise.
The scene is said to have Rick, accompanied by Maggie, Carol, and Daryl. As Rick is fending off some walkers he is said to get bit. As he dies he sees a vision of Shane (played by the returning Jon Bernthal) before he finally dies.
