WARNING SPOILERS ! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Walking Dead fans have been sure two things, one that Negan was coming (He has arrived) and two, that the series’ beloved sheriff Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, will see the show through its entire run. We were wrong about the latter of the two. Keeping with the show’s theme of “anyone can die at any time,” Robert Kirkman, who fans see as a big kid with magnifying glass, burning everything we love, broke the news that Rick will die at some point (Damn it Kirkman).

During a live Q&A for his upcoming series Outcast, the topic quickly turned to The Walking Dead. Kirkman got a question that simply asking “do Rick die?”. Grammar aside, Reddit user maxforce54 asked a good question. Kirkman’ answer was heartbreaking, “He do eventually.” Well, damn. I mean, he’s writer couldn’t have just lied? Even if Rick is meant to die at some point did we really need to know that? Now, no matter what happens, Rick’s impending death is going to be sitting in the back of my mind. Doesn’t Kirkman’s confession ruin the show a little, it did for me.




Yes, Rick has gotten on the nerves of some fans. But no matter what, he is the leader of the group and an amazing character. I truly hope that Kirkman will change his mind about Rick’s fate, but let’s be honest, ripping our hearts out and feeding it to walkers is kind of Kirkman’s thing.
