AMC’s The Walking Dead ended its fourth season on Sunday with yet another cliffhanger, and another set of record-breaking ratings.
15.7 million viewers tuned in to see Rick, Carl and their group fight zombies and humans in the post-apocalyptic world, and while a few questions were answered, fans of the show are still left with many burning inquiries that will hopefully be answered with the next season.
Until then, we have some questions of our own to ponder over the seven month wait until the next part in The Walking Dead series. Spoiler alert for those not caught up with this season.
1) Where’s Beth?
The last time we saw her, Beth was escaping a herd of zombies while inadvertently leaving Daryl to fend for himself. While she had a working car, is it really possible that Beth has learned enough to go it alone at this point?
2) Where does Rick and Carl’s relationship go from here?
Throughout the series Rick and Carl’s father-son relationship has been rocky to say the least. Rick has gone through some major personal changes, giving fans the farmer-Rick-tatorship dichotomy to go off of. Carl has shown violent outbursts in the past and was just beginning to show feelings of sympathy towards others when extenuating circumstances caused Rick to show his son examples of intense violence. So we wonder, what’s going to happen between them from here?
3) What happened to Carol, Tyrese and Judith?
We know that Carol, Tyrese and Rick’s baby daughter, Judith, left the house they had found after the murders of Micah and Lizzie, but where are they now? With a baby in tow the group is much more susceptible to a zombie – or human – attack.
4) Where did the burning zombies come from?
Anyone remember the small herd of smoldering zombies that attacked Carol, Tyrese, Lizzie and Micah while they were staying at the Pecan House? Where did they come from? Why were they burning? Who set them on fire? Does this have anything to do with Terminus?
5) Terminus: Cult? Cannibals? What is this place?
Signs all over claimed “Terminus: those who arrive, survive,” but viewers already know that’s probably not true. The room filled with lit candles and “Never Again. Never Trust. We First, Always,” written on the walls screams cult while some wonder just exactly what type of meat that was that Mary had barbecuing.
6) How are they going to get out of this one?
The group has gotten out of sticky situations before, but being trapped in a train car surrounded by some sort of dangerous cult-like group of people who have access to weapons and ammunition seems impossible to get out of. With a snowball’s chance of escape, we’ll just have to wait until the next season to find out what happens to Rick and his group, as he said, “They’re screwing with the wrong people.”
With the Rick-tatorship back in full effect, season five of The Walking Dead returns to AMC in October.
