Exclusive Walking Dead Finale Pics: Fight or Flight? Plus – [Spoiler] Returns to the Prison

Get More: Exclusive, First Look

It’s the Walking Dead episode we’ve all been waiting for — and also kinda dreading, because it’s the season’s last one — the grand finale!

But will we actually get the jailhouse vs. Woodbury battle that’s been looming for so long, or will Rick and Co. decide that it’s safer (and saner!) to get the hell outta Dodge?

While you ponder that question — and what you would do in Team Jailhouse’s shoes — take a gander at these three exclusive images from the hour. What do you think is going on in the pics (aside from the Governor giving us the evil eye, obviously!)?

  • Is the spoiler referring to Tyrese and the other girl or Daryl?

    • OF COURSE DARYL IS COMING BACK BUT THE QUESTION IS….. WILL HE BE BACK IN TIME? CUZ IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE LEAVING THE PRISON TO GET AWAY FROM THE GOV. AND HIS STUPID CREW.

  • i know its time for the gov to go out with style but i dont want him to go, david morrisey has been utterly fantastic in the role.
    my only fear is that norman reedus is the guest on talking dead this week and that spot is usually reserved for cast members who have been killed off in the past, so im a little worried daryl could be killed off. hopefully they know we know that and are trying to throw us off the scent of something else.

    • Andrea was on last week and she’s still alive (although not kicking considering she’s strapped into that dentist’s chair)

    • I wouldn’t be worried about losing Daryl. It’s not gonna happen.

      Comment by wrstlgirl – March 28, 2013 01:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If Daryl was going to die I don’t think they would have announced his appearance on Talking Dead. That would be a huge spoiler. They usually say “and a surprise cast member” when that’s the case.

    • Last two cast members who have been on Talking Dead’s characters were still alive when they were on the show (Andrea and The Governor)

      • . The guy who played Merle was on last week and he is dead.

        • He also wasn’t advertised though….at least I don’t remember it.

          • Right, he wasn’t.

        • Lauren Cohan (Maggie) & Steven Yeun (Glenn) were both on The Talking Dead, and they’re still alive. Beth was on it as well, still alive.
          This season they had more alive guests than dead ones. I also doubt they would kill the fan favorite of the show. There’d be a riot on the streets.

  • Considering which arm The Governor is using to hold his machine gun, that gunsight on top ain’t gonna much use to him.

  • I think that Tyreese and his sister are going to go back to the prison to tell the Grimes Gang what the Gov has planned. Then, the Grimes gang (plus Tyreese and his sister) will leave the prison after they set a trap for the Gov and his people leading them into the Tombs so the Bitters can take care of them. I’m probably wrong, but that’s what I see from the pictures, the episode title, and last Sunday’s previews. Wish they would expand the season to 22 episode instead of 16. But, will take what they give and love it!

    • Trailer shows lack of walkers in the yard. Rick etal lead them into the prison. Trailer shows Allen about to breach the door but it unlocked. Rick and gang will be behind them. Walkers in front, the Grimes team behind squeezing them. Daryl will kill the Gov for Merle by taking his head. There can be only one!

  • SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 27 people will die in the season finale!!!!!!!

    Comment by Greg Moliere – March 28, 2013 04:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope that they don’t kill anybody off this season finale. One of the main reasons that I love this show is becuase you never know who will live or who will die. But, I would like to be truly shocked by this finale and see all of the “good guys” live.

  • Other sites are saying there are 2 main cast members dying in the last 2 episodes. So Merle dying in last weeks means there is still one more main cast member dying. It says those in danger could be: Maggie, Glen, Andrea, Beth and the Governor. Although it also said the only one guaranteed to be safe is Carl. Reports say by the time the episode is over, jaws will be on the floor!

    Comment by Vi – March 28, 2013 04:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • you said main cast members so that rules out beth, she isnt a main cast member; and for some reason i just cant see glen or maggie being killed off, those two are the emotional centre of the show and i cant see one of them going yet. i think its going to be the governor, mainly because its the right time for him to go.

      Comment by Alan – March 28, 2013 04:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I could see it being either Glenn or Maggie, but I seriously hope not. And I hope it isn’t Herschel, every time he’s been on the screen I’ve been afraid he’s going to bite it.

        Comment by Faster – March 28, 2013 06:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I hope it’s Andrea. So tired of her.

          Comment by Drizz – March 29, 2013 09:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I could easily see either Glenn or Maggie being killed off. One dies in the act of saving the other. Especially right after they got engaged.

        • Glenn Dies Saving Maggie.

  • Andrew Lincoln was obviously exaggerating when he said 27 people were going to die. It’s like when someone says they have a million things to do. Two main cast members are likely going to die, and with the info we’ve been given, my bets are on Hershel and either Beth or Judith.

    Comment by Judith – March 28, 2013 04:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Neither of those 3 are main cast members.

      Comment by Teag – March 28, 2013 05:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I would say that hershel is a main cast member.

        Comment by KB – March 29, 2013 08:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • he isnt. his name isnt in the opening sequence so he isnt a main cast member

          Comment by Alan – March 29, 2013 11:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • He still is a main cast member. Everybody in the prison group is a main cast member. I know that they are technically featured players, opposed to starring cast members, but they are considered main cast members. If Hershel dies it would count. Michael Rooker counts, too. That isn’t indicative of their character’s status as much as it is a financial or contractual situation (referring to who’s name is during the title sequence opposed to the crawl during the episode, or the “also starring Melissa McBride…” part).

            Comment by scott42444 – March 31, 2013 03:40 PM PDT  
          • also starring is given to every other important actor in the episode even if its the only episode of the show they are ever going to be in. anyway by guild rules the guys with their names in the opening credits are the main cast, anyone who isnt named there is the guest cast/recurring cast and thats how they need to be refered to by people connected to the show and the media.

          • Corn syrup has long been off my list because of my
            daughter Heather’s experience as a toddler. Because of these concerns, Nordic sources Arctic Cod from Norwegian waters, which, according to the Institute for Marine Research, have numbers above safe biological limits and growing. It also binds to amino acids in your bloodstream to become Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products.

    • Maybe not, it could be all the Woodbury people…

      Comment by Faster – March 28, 2013 06:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maybe not. The bulk will likely be Woodury guys so the number could be that high.

    • those 27 he was referring to are most likely zombies….I’m thinkin’ the Govenor will die…..and Glenn…..only because he just asked maggie to marry him….we were all so happy….now time to be sad again…..

  • Remember who said it first. Milton..we will find out is actually the governors brother. Milton will kill the governor and take his place. And everyone will get killed except rick..carl..daryl..glen..michonne and Andrea. They will be only survivors.

    • Thank you for posting after the other guy Jacob. Now, in my head, I can say “One of those guys is just messing with us, or both of them, but they both said different things and they are probably both wrong”

  • Carol lives she has to do a big thing in Atalanta also Maggie lives cuz in season 4 Maggie has to see glen die by a guy named negon also Milton turns over to team prison so dose tyrees Beth lives also in season 4 she plays a big role Rick I think at the last minute of the finale will get shot people will think Rick died but then in season 4 he comes back cuz the gov only will shoot Rick in the shoulder oh ya season 4 is in atlanta

    Comment by Jacob – March 29, 2013 04:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If this is the same Jacob then your comments don’t add up. You say Glenn dies and then he has to live to be killed by Negan. Well for one, the show doesn’t follow strictly to the comics otherwise Tyreese would have been introduced sooner and Shane would never have made it out of Atlanta and a lot of other factors.

      • That moron’s just using the comics to make his predictions. Obviously, he doesn’t realize that the writers have purposely *not* done what happened in the comics so that the show is it’s own thing.

  • To me it is a nailed on certainty that Herschel will die….all the scenes in the last episode reminded me of the lead up to the Death of Dale.

    Hopefully Morgan will make a return to help with the booby traps around the prison!

    • I think that Andrew Lincoln is THE one guy who should feel safe because of 2 reasons.
      1. His character is THE main character of the comics and television show, also there are so many stories that his character has left to tell that killing him off when the ratings are at record highs would be PURE SHOCK VALUE, nothing else
      2. With all of the changeover with the showrunners, the actor himself Andrew Lincoln seems to be a strong and consistent presence on set for all of the new stars and episode specific costars that arrive on set (from what everyone says). He is the face of the franchise. Like the Office without Steve Carell, TWD would start its downward spiral after Ricks death. The show is TOO popular and Kirkman probably plans on at least 6 seasons. MAYBE they would kill him off with 1, 1 1/2, maybe 2 seasons left to go. But it would be suicidal to have the viewers invest SO much into the main character and kill him off (and remove Andy Lincoln from the set).

  • I heard if they kill off any of the main characters( hershal Glen Maggie Carl mashone Daryl rick ect) there show I’d gonna lose a whole rating and is gonna piss off some fans me my family and my friends are included.. In my opinion its gonna ruin the series!! /:

  • I think that we will just have to wait and hope for the best. I definitely would hate to see Daryl or Michonne go. I wouldn’t be surprised if they killed off Rick because his character has taken a back seat to some of the others character development this season. We just have to wait in anticipation…

  • I am very happy with the finale. I’m sorry kids, but if Ricks group is to survive and Judith grow up sane, someone’s gonna have to take Carl down a few notches or take him out.
