Exclusive First Look: Will The Walking Dead Terminate Rick Before He Reaches Terminus?

More than a few critics have suggested that it’s time for The Walking Dead to bump off its end-of-the-world-weary hero, Rick. But would AMC’s monster smash really go through with it?

New season finale promo art suggests that it might.

As you can see in the exclusive image below, the show hasn’t supplied us with a run-of-the-mill picture depicting its characters en route to Terminus, the sanctuary whose motto is, “Those who arrive survive.”

Rather, the shot is of Andrew Lincoln’s shaggy sheriff, along with son Carl (Chandler Riggs) and their formidable traveling companion, Michonne (Danai Gurira), looking poised to do battle and quite possibly surrounded by the smoke that Tyreese and Carol saw in last week’s episode. Even more ominous is the tagline: “Who will arrive?”

In other words: Who will survive?
