Poor T-Dog. Just when the guy steps up and proves himself a valued member of the team, he sacrifices himself while saving Carol but Carol’s final fate is left in question. Was it Andrew spying on Carol as she played Doctor with the walker? How will Carol escape a prison overrun with walkers?

At least we now know which side Oscar has chosen, but what about Axel? The twist would be having Axel pick up the plot that focused on another inmate in the comicbooks.

Worry not about Hershel’s horrific aputation. Scott Wilson, who portrays Hershel Greene, was seen on set while the cast and crew were filming this season’s 12th (?) episode wearing blue legging and using crutches to move around. The blue legging allows the show’s digital effects team to “remove” Hershel’s leg during the editing process and we’ve already seen Hershel hobbling around on crutches. As for the last few episodes of the season, no word on whether or not Hershel appears.

On to the man who makes fangirls squeel with glee, Norman “Daryl Dixon” Reedus was recently seen filming in Newnan, Georgia for this season’s 15th episode. The spoiler is not that Daryl Dixon survives into the season finale, it’s what was happening during this particular scene. Daryl wasn’t alone on set. Two individuals, with burlap sacks over their heads, bound on the ground, were surrounded by walkers. As to what leads our anti-hero into this situation, only time will tell. Maybe Daryl is taking revenge on whomever beat the hell outta Glenn? The photo below was taking during an episode’s filming in Senoia (Woodbury), Georgia. Did Glenn get taken by Woodbury’s men? The rumor is that Glenn and Maggie are taken to Woodbury. The Governor’s men interrogate Maggie while Glenn gets tortured in the other room and she’s forced to listen.

Many of you have been asking and speculating about the reunion of the Dixon brothers and I can tell you it’s not pretty. Merle doesn’t take kindly to the fact that his baby brother is now Rick Grime’s right hand man, especially since Merle had to saw off his right hand because Grime’s left him handcuffed to a roof. Merle may have found his way into Woodbury but it’s his brutal tactics that make the man a hero to the town’s people. Without any of the old world’s comforts to bring them excitement or take their mind’s off of the terrible things surrounding them on a daily basis, the citizens of Woodbury have taken to watching and betting on gladiator style fights in the town’s arena and Merle is one of their most prized fighters. During this season’s 5th or 6th episode, Merle proves again and again that he’s more than capable of taking out a few walkers and some unlucky survivors who cross his path.

This brings us to Andrea and Michonne. This season’s 3rd episode foreshadowed Michonne getting back her prized weapon as Andrea, The Governor, Milton and herself sat down for breakfast and Michonne spied her katana sitting in one of the Governor’s cabinets. It’s also been revealed that Michonne begins to suspect that Woodbury isn’t the happy community that the citizens would want her to believe it to be. How will she react to the wall of walker head aquariums as she breaks into the Governor’s apartment and finds out the horrors that he’s keeping hidden from the rest of the community? We’ve already been given glimpses of Woodbury’s horrors and some foreshadowing in this season’s 3rd episode. Remember how the camera lingered on the family photo sitting on the Governor’s bookshelf? It won’t be long until we meet a little girl who loves wearing the color pink, mostly because the blood stains don’t show as badly.

Andrea seems to think she’s finally found safety after being in the wild for so many months but will her perspective of Woodbury change when she begins to understand Milton’s true intentions. For that matter, how will our feminine dynatic duo handle the fact that the Governor has been keeping his daughter Penny, now a walker, chained up, feeding her pieces of meat carved off of other survivors who’ve made the mistake of walking beyond the walls of Woodbury? Does this lead to the now infamous torture scene so gruesomely portrayed in the comics? Is it Michonne who is brutally raped and beaten by the Governor or does this story shift it’s focus onto Andrea with the likes of Merle or Milton extracting the severe punishment?

Since filming takes place inside the closed off prison set, it’s hard to find any information about Glenn, Maggie and Beth Greene. I speculate that Beth is another unfortunate casualty of the prison, leaving Hershel and Maggie to mourn for another family member. Bring us back to Lori’s baby. Did Carl really put a bullet in Lori’s head or will it be Rick that has to put down his estranged wife after she’s risen? As for the baby, I speculate that it’ll be Glenn and Maggie who step up to raise the first child born to the group during the Zombie Apocalypse. How will Carl react to his baby sister’s birth causing his mother’s death? What will the tensions be like between Carl and Maggie after Carl helps Maggie carve up Lori to save the baby?

Visits to the filming set also reveal that Rick finally meets his new arch-nemesis sometime around this season’s 10th episode. The final outcome of this meeting will shock even the most devoted fans of the series. Especially when Woodbury is over run with Walkers.

And lastly, filming is happening out of order. The script for episode 14 was finished while cast and crew were filming the show’s 15th episode and the amazing team of writers are currently putting the finishing touches on the season finale.
