In case you’re still optimistic about the future for Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the gang, executive producer Robert Kirkman warns that there will be blood, especially where Rick is involved.

“This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit,” Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly, implying that Rick’s flirtation with madness on Season 3 was just a taste.
