The Walking Dead isn't over yet, but Andrew Lincoln already has his character's final scene in mind.

During TWD's PaleyFest panel on Friday, the actor was asked how he hoped Rick Grimes would end the series, and we have to say, his answer was pretty amazing.

"I'm going to say this now, this is how I want Rick to die," Lincoln began.

"Do you want to hear it? I was going to say it anyway," he cracked, noting that he shared the story with TWD executive producer Greg Nicotero in Madrid, who found the story impressive. "So, we're going through a desert somewhere and I jump off the bus."

"In a very heroic act, Rick jumps off, 'Carrrrll!' He's still alive. Maybe it's the last thing I say," he offered as the audience burst into laughter.

"I jump off and I'm, like, kung-fu kicking, earn my action figure, half way through I get bit... 'Ow!' Doesn't matter, 'Keep going!'" Lincoln continued, getting out of his chair to act out the scene. "Anyway, I deal with that, and I'm dying on my own. Just waiting to die. I wait and I patch up... and then day passes."

"I patch myself up. I'm a survivalist. I don't die," Lincoln went on. "The final shot is, "'Holy sh*t! Maybe I'm the cure!'"

"High shot, the whole thing... High shot, herd of zombies coming. Rick gets up, follows the tracks to go see 'Carrrrrll,' walking, the herd comes towards him, and they separate," he said, to laughs from cast members like Melissa McBride. "He walks through. Boom!"

"If I could, I would do all that, and then Eugene comes in a dune buggy and runs over Rick," Josh McDermitt hilariously added.

ET caught up with Nicotero last month, when he didn't comment on Lincoln's prediction, but did tease the "brutal" Savior war ahead.
