'The Walking Dead' season 3, episode 4 spoilers: 'The Killer Within' will strike

On October 31, new "The Walking Dead" season 3 spoilers were leaked and they reveal some pretty shocking news about episode 4, "The Killer Within." Spoiler alert: stop reading now if you don't want to know what's coming up on the show. has made the claim that two characters will die over the course of the episode. While they don't reveal who exactly will die, they offer a poll which contains the two names. Who are they? Well, the poll lists: Merle, Rick, Daryl, Axel, Lori, Carol, Maggie, Glenn, Carl, The Governor, T-Dog, Andrea, Lori's Baby and Michonne.
Missing from the list is Hershel, which could have been a leading choice due to his amputation.
Does the episode title contain a clue? "The Killer Within" could mean so many things on the show. Is the killer in the prison? A recent preview that was released for this episode shows that someone leaves a prison yard gate open and another preview shows someone setting off the loud alarm in the yard, drawing the zombies close to the fence. Is someone trying to sabotage the prison?
Maybe the "Killer Within" is in Woodbury. The Governor is an evil character and the show has introduced him in a gentler light. Surely at one point, they are going to have to show his true colors, right? Who would he kill? The obvious choices would be Andrea, Michonne or Merle. It isn't likely that Andrea or Michonne would die though because their characters play so heavily into later issues of the comic series. Of course, that doesn't mean much considering the show has no problems diverting greatly from the comics.
The person who does die in the comics is Lori. Perhaps the "Killer Within" refers to her baby. Maybe the baby passed away and turned into a zombie, threatening to consume her from the inside. Gross, right? This would be a pretty big departure from the comics in which she lives to deliver the baby, but she and the baby are both killed when trying to escape when the Governor attacks and tries to take over the prison.
One thing is for certain, it will be an emotional episode. Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon on the show recently said, "We just watched Episode 4, as a group, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house, even though these were people who were there while we were filming it, all day, over and over again."
What do you think? Who do you think will die in the next episode?
