During the Amazing Arizona Comicon, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman talked about some potential spoilers for the remainder of Season 4 and beyond. Of course, he refrained from giving away any specific big reveals like the fate of baby Judith, but he did offer some insight into such things as whether Rick’s group would ever leave Georgia and or if Negan will ever appear on the show.
In regards to the fate of baby Judith, Kirkman said, “There was a bloody car seat there. Maybe she’s dead. Maybe she’s not. We’ll have to see. Maybe somebody rescued her, and they had like a nosebleed. They were like, ‘Oh, my god, I’m ruining this car seat. I really need to take this with me, but ok, never mind. I hope Rick doesn’t see this. He’s going to think something terrible happened.’ That’s not what happened. We’ll find out February 9th.”
In regards to when viewers could expect to see beyond Georgia on AMC’s Walking Dead, Kirkman said, “Well, that would be a spoiler. But I will say they clearly leave Georgia at some point in the comic.” Kirkman added, “So anyway, they will possibly, eventually follow that storyline, but I can’t say when. But I would say there’s a good chance that may happen.”
In regards to who got Lori pregnant, Kirkman said, “It was probably Shane.”
In regards to if Morgan would return and play some type of role in the second half of Season 4, Kirkman said, “If he was, I couldn’t say, so I would probably give some sort of cagey answer. It’s entirely possible that we haven’t seen the last of Morgan. But there’s always a possibility that we have. So you’ll just have to tune in. We all love Lennie James though, so anytime we can get that guy back we try to do that.”
In regards to if Negan will make it into the show at some point, Kirkman said, “It’s a question of when not if. We actually talk about that a bit in the writer’s room as to when it would be appropriate to bring him in and what needs to happen in order to get to that point. Unless the show gets canceled abruptly very soon, you’ll see Negan on the TV show. Like Season 9?”
The Walking Dead Season 4 returns on Sunday, February 9, 2014 on AMC.
