Rick, for the first time in his pre-and-post-apocalyptic life, is powerless. He is reevaluating everything he thought to be true in this world. He is terrified for his life, and the lives of his children, and the group. He now knows he is outnumbered and he has lost, regardless. The world is a much bigger, scarier place than he ever imagined.
Andrew Lincoln recently won the 2015 Saturn Award for Best Actor in a Television Series for his role as Rick Grimes in AMC’s The Walking Dead. Previously, Lincoln earned a nomination for Best Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards, in addition to 2011 and 2013 Saturn Award nominations for his work on the series.
