After last night’s gut-wrenching episode of Walking Dead, fans want to know is good guy Glenn really dead?
In the episode “Thank You” we saw Glenn and Alexandria traitor Nicholas surrounded by a massive horde of walkers. Trapped on top a dumpster, Nicholas decides to kill himself. Unfortunately his corpse knocks Glenn into the horde and terrified fans watch as a beloved character is seemingly devoured.
But is he truly gone?
Here’s the facts:
- Glenn and Nicholas’ body fell together.
- Glenn appeared to be OK after falling to the ground.
- We did NOT see the zombies eating Glenn’s body.
- Glenn was not featured In Talking Dead’s “In Memoriam” segment.
- Walking Dead writer Scott Gimple offered the following statement:
“Dear fans of The Walking Dead, this is a hard story to tell and when we were planning to tell we knew our friends at the Talking Dead would be talking to you about it and knowing you’d all be talking, and feeling and commiserating, I knew we should say something about it lest our silence say something we didn’t mean to say or not say So I’ll say this: In some way, we will see Glenn, some version of Glenn or parts of Glenn again, either in flashback or in the current story to help complete the story”
There are many explanations out there to explaining how Glenn could have survived including that Nicholas’ body is on top of Glenn’s and the blood and guts we saw were not his.
However Gimple’s statement is not encouraging: We will see “some version of Glenn” or “parts of Glenn” perhaps in a “flash back”?
Sounds like our beloved pizza delivery boy is doomed to become a walker.
