In last week’s ‘The Walking Dead,’ things turned violent. Rick snapped, and as a result, the citizens of Alexandria aren’t feeling warm and fuzzy towards Rick’s group any longer. In the Season 5 finale, “Conquer,” viewers will see trouble brewing inside the gates. That trouble is just as likely to come from internal threats as external ones.
Grab your tissues. The inevitable is upon us ‘Walking Dead’ fans! It looks like fan favorite Daryl Dixon will be killed off in tonight’s season 5 finale episode.
According to real estate site Curbed Atlanta, Norman Reedus, the actor who plays Dixon, is selling his Georgia home in Serenbe. Adding fuel to the speculation, Norman is scheduled to appear on “Talking Dead” following tonight’s season finale. As fans know, a “Talking Dead” appearance can be seen as a death sentence for characters since the show often features those who’ve died. Furthermore, Dixon has warned fans multiple times to have their tissues ready.
This is pure speculation but keep your Kleenex close by just in case. More things to ponder from tonight’s episode:
- Deanna’s exiled members: Deanna has repeatedly stated she’s exiled people from Alexandria before and she’d do it again. She’s never described the men she exiled, but she did say there were three of them. Why the men were forced to leave is unclear, but they could be the ones behind the “W” markings.
- Rick could be exiled: If Rick is forced to leave Alexandria, he’ll likely encounter Deanna’s other exiles or team up with whoever he finds to take down the community. Rick’s a threat to Alexandria inside and outside the walls. Either way, Rick’s not going down without a fight.
- Enid is hiding something: No one knows what Enid was up to before she showed up to Alexandria. She’s continued to keep her secrets despite being accepted into the community. Enid also sneaks out of Alexandria, but where she goes is unknown.
- Morgan’s on their trail: The series has teased videos of Morgan following Rick’s crew. We haven’t seen him since the crew left for Washington D.C., which means Morgan can’t be too far behind. Speaking of Morgan, Business Insider recently pointed out a scene that may have contained a possible clue as to what the “W” means.
The scene aired in season 3, episode 12 “Clear.” Morgan has a melt down when Rick and Carl find him. Rick tries to calm Morgan, but he yells, “People wearing dead people’s faces.” In “The Walking Dead” comics, there’s a group called “The Whisperers” who wear masks made of walker skin to disguise themselves in a heard.
