Back in August, we mentioned a casting call that went out and asked the question if Alpha was coming soon to The Walking Dead TV show. You can see the full post here to read up on the gory details. New details have come to light that show the Whisperers could be coming to The Walking Dead this month and Alpha (could Beta be far behind) are coming to The Walking Dead TV show in February.
The synopsis on IMDB for episode 7.6 called Swear, has the group meeting a mysterious new group. Harmless enough, right?
However, the synopsis for episode 7.8, called Heart Still Beating, states the Whisperers attack Alexandria….
Finally, episode 7.10 in February, which states, well you can see it below.
Now the one caveat to all this is if IMDB users are able to add show plot synopsis to IMDB descriptions. If that is the case then what Scott Gimple said in an interview with CinemaBlend might not be misdirection.
If we’ve gotten this far without saying anything about them, I’d like the audience to discover this group when it’s on screen. I will say … I mean, it’s not the Whisperers. I will also say, though, that it’s not impossible that the Whisperers could come along or aspects of them could come along earlier than the timeline of the book, but certainly not this early.
