Say it ain't so! "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman recently revealed we will lose more main characters this season, and a new photo emerged Monday of Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) in a gag, tied up with bruises all over. Could we really see the last of him in season five?

"In our premiere episode of season 5 we're going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they're doing, why they're doing it, what's going on with them," Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly radio.

 "And by the end of that episode you're going to have a much better understanding of what's going on with them and why they're so important to the show."

He also added, "Oh and Daryl dies," but we for sure thought he was kidding!

Kirkman revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that we will definitely say goodbye to some favorites this season.

"It's always highly likely, though I wouldn't say that it's any more likely than it ever is, but it is always extremely likely," he explained.

"We did pull back on the reins a little bit at the end of season four. We're definitely going to hit the ground running for season five and we really don't let up very quickly at all. It's going to be a pretty fast-paced, intense season."

Another survivor we would be sad to see go is Glenn, played by Steven Yeun. It has been speculated we will lose him this season, but Kirkman has stayed mum on that note. However, he is fully aware of Glenn's popularity in the series.

"I absolutely love it. It means people care and people are paying attention. So keep those rumors flying!" he said.
