We’re only two episodes into The Walking Dead Season 4 and already the body count is creeping up. After saying goodbye to Zack, Clara, and Patrick last week, we didn’t have to wait more than five into Episode 2, “Infected” before another fatality occurred.
Hungry new walker Patrick, loose in cell block D, feasted on a member of Team Prison right off the bat, narrowly missing Tyreese’s lady friend, Karen. Now with two walkers roaming the prison, it didn’t take long for panic to spread as many former Woodbury rapidly became walkers.
One guy named Ryan was bitten on his arm, and though Carol tried to amputate it, she was too late. Ryan got to say goodbye to his two little girls before he turned, and one of them even offered to kill him for good (as we sobbed) but ultimately couldn’t bring herself to do it. Carol stuck a knife in his brain as his daughters stood feet away, looking at flowers.
Episode 2’s big death however came in the installment final moments. As Tyreese headed back to check in on Karen, he noticed a trail of blood leading outside. As he ran out, Tyreese found Karen’s burned body next to another charred figure. Yikes!
Who the hell would burn Karen, you guys? Tell us your thoughts and theories below!The Walking Dead Season 4 airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
