Man, brutal ending to the midseason of the Walking Dead Season 5. I am keeping this spoiler free so, it is ok to read if you haven’t watched the show yet.
In the previews of the beginning of next season, there is talks of being only an hour away from a safe community. Sounds a bit like Alexandria. The writers have also said they were sticking closer to the comic this year and Alexandria shows up just a few issues after the Fear the Hunter story line, in Walking Dead #69. Prices are a little high on this one but there are auctions starting around $3.
Some clues from comicbook.com that support the theory:
In the series’ November 2 episode, Noah told Beth that he’s from Richmond, Virginia, “where they have walls.” Whether Richmond is another of the settlements or it will take the place of Alexandria isn’t immediately clear.
Also, Kirkman recently stated that Daryl is not gay, but a gay character would be introduced shortly. Could this be the fan favorite Jesus? Paul Monroe has a cameo in Walking Dead #91 and his first full appearance in Walking Dead #92.
And, if we are getting into it, we know Negan will be coming. So this would be just a hop skip and a jump from seeing him, if we already haven’t. Time to start looking at Walking Dead #100 for the first Negan appearance, especially the short printed Walking Dead #100 Second Print
