Spoiler: I have not read Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead comics, but there are still comic Spoilers ahead. Please back out if you haven’t, or don’t want to know about what may be upcoming Walking Dead television series events.
AMC’s The Walking Dead returns October 12th, and though we may be concerned about how the gang will get out of their season 4 finale predicament, Norman Reedus’ recent photos have us all atwitter about what happens after they (presumably) do:
Tweet 1: Reedus joked that TWD make-up/effects man Greg Nicotero proposed to him
Tweet 2: Reedus accepts!
Tweet 3: As often happens on the series, things got messy…
Now, here’s the interesting and SPOILERISH part (including comic spoilers); In the comic, the Governor (David Morrissey) cut off Rick’s hand — which obviously didn’t happen on the television series. If you’re not paying close attention to the photos, you may not have noticed that in the second photo, Nicotero is holding Reedus’ right hand, while the third photo shows a severed left hand. The first photo also appears to be a left hand; is it actually Andrew Lincoln’s, and not Reedus’? And since the Governor is long gone, who does the lopping? That certainly seems the more likely scenario, and for people who haven’t read the comic, great misdirection by our Daryl, who may actually be revealing his true self soon.
Here’s the latest trailer:
