when Rick kills Shane on the walking dead
then Hershel’s farm is overrun by walkers
He’s found a real friend [in Carol].
The rest of Season 4 starts February 9, and it gets pretty dark. I guess the answer is ‘yes.’ But just how far we go and what we do and stuff, you’ll just have to watch. But I will say that the show will continue to get a little bit bleak at times and a little bit darker as the world progresses, and as things get a little bit more dire as they have in the comic. So we’re not going to be pulling any punches, and there’s a lot of stuff coming up that AMC is very worried about, which makes me happy.
