Spoiler warning for the Walking Dead

Some body got a hold of screeners for the last two episodes of the walking dead. They've made screen caps of MAJOR spoilers and are being spread around the internets. Over at 4chan and reddit, trolls are putting these images in unrelated discussions and intentionally mis labeling them.

Personally I'm going to stop reading forums for two weeks. I've read these are show killing spoilers.

Spoilers don't bother me if I cared I wouldn't read books before the movie came out.

The book thing is kind of different. Just like this show you don't know if they stayed 100% true to the books, until you watch. If I see how this season WILL end before I get to watch myself than that would pretty much suck.

Thanks for the heads up...Hopefully some troll won't post shots in this thread

I think we're better than that. Most of the spoiler arguments here stem from philosophical disagreements as to what constitutes a spoiler. I can't think of any case where somebody has done something like that (although I suspect it would very quickly be followed by a post deletion and user ban, and most of us would never know about it).

I love reading spoilers, searched and found these, and very much look forward to it playing out.

Apparently, the old show-runner wouldn't go along with the network's insistence that they reveal the zombie apocalypse to be the result of alien intervention, so they fired him and found a more complacent guy for next season.*


*Comic book in-joke.

I think the walking dead has the same problem as Game of Thrones. The difficulty of separating the TV show from the book/comic.

Seriously the spoilers being posted will ruin your day.

Except that Walking Dead has diverged from the comics so much, I don't see how major spoilers could happen at this point (from the comics, that is).
