WASHINGTON, November 1, 2015 – I do not even want to write this. As a fan of The Walking Dead, chatting every single episode since season one, except last weeks, the thought of Glenn being dead is overwhelming.
Tonight’s episode is a mega-herd 90 minutes. Communities Digital News will be hosting a fan chat that will go from the opening of The Walking Dead to the close of The Talking Dead.
Yes, the comic book says he dies, we have been on Glenn Death Watch for multiple seasons. But its still not ok. And it’s unanswered – is he or isn’t he?
The Talking Dead ended last weeks In Memoriam with “say it ain’t so” or words to that effect.
And social media is abuzz with the real story:
- Glenn crawled under the dumpster;
- It’s a “dream sequence” as Nicholas did not have any bullets left;
- Glenn has a flair gun, and he will shoot it off to distract the Walkers and get away;
- Glenn is dead.
Then we left Rick, trapped in Dale’s RV, surrounded by a herd with a very badly cut, Zombie gore infected hand. A Zombie fan in my house says Rick will cut off his hand (mimicking the comic book) and throw it out to the herd, that they will follow the scent of the fresh blood so Rick can escape.
Which may be more gore than I can take.
One final social media buzz has Daryl being killed off as he has a new motorcycle show, Ride With Norman Reedus, on AMC. Six one-hour episodes, debuting in 2017, follows Norman Reedus as he takes “..viewers on a ride on the open road to explore local motorcycle culture and history and celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country.” (AMC)
We might recover from losing Glenn and Rick’s left hand, but I don’t think I can take losing Daryl.
I hope they wait to see if the new show succeeds before knocking him off.
All that said, I am pretty sure that Carol, Carl, Rick and Maggie will be the only ones to survive at the end of the day. But with The Walking Dead, only time will time.
