    I've already read the series, but this article should have included a spoiler alert for the comic, or just not said what happens to Tyreese in the end. The TV show may well go differently, but lots of folks who haven't yet read the comic might read this website. If they decide to read it, now they know not only what happens to this character, but what issue it happens in.

    Very poor form CBR.

    JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, after all the smack downs from the moderator about not spoiling the comic in the discussion forums, CBR pulls this shit?

    It don't really matter . I mean was anyone not expecting spoilers of people cast for the show ? I mean its not like its giving what exact storyline the character will emerge in or how.

    Question is, with Tyrese coming into the mix, does that mean that the days of Daryl as Rick's reliable co-leader are counted? Dun dun dun!

    They better not kill Daryl, he's like half of the reason why this show is watchable.

    I was kinda split on this one. On one hand, Tyreese is a pretty cool character in the comics, and I'm interested to see how he'll play out on the TV show. On the other hand, though, I've always liked how the stark differences between the TV show and the books, (characters that live in one, die in the other, and characters that don't even exist in one, do in the other), makes the reading and the watching two completely unique experiences for me, if that makes any sense. Like two completely different, if somewhat similar, universe to enjoy.

    If it's confirmed that he's coming, I'm interested to see what he'll bring to the show.

    You know, there's still people who read the series in trade and are just getting into it. CBR, mind removing that spoiler?

    It's akin to announcing that Katniss kills President Snow in the article that says Donald Sutherland has joined the cast.
