The Strange “Loose Ends” You Didn’t Know The Show Needs To Resolve…


Will The Show Stop Milking The Tension?

We get it. The Walking Dead Season 6 ended on a cliffhanger and then we had to sludge through eight long and slow episodes. Will we see real action in the next eight episodes or will we have to wait until Season 8 for a Negan War?

When Will Carol Be “Carol?”

Carol has always been a peacemaker, but before that meant killing the enemy for the greater good. Now that she has been searching for peace as a loner, her arc has been much less interesting. Rick (and the audience) wants the old Carol back.

Who Was Following Rick And Aaron?

With the note, “Congrats for winning, but you still lose,” it’s hard to say how lucky it was for Rick and Aaron to find those supplies. The note led to Aaron getting beat up and there was also someone watching the duo. When the series returns, we expect to know who was following our faithful heroes.

Will Daryl Be Compassionate Or Ruthless?

During his escape, Daryl left an empty jail cell and a blood-stained corpse on his way out. When The Walking Dead returns, will he be the same ol’ compassionate Daryl that gave Carol a flower or will he be a killer?

What Needs To Happen For These Colonies To Unite?

Every leader has been firm in their resolve thus far on The Walking Dead. Rick Grimes has done everything Negan has asked and it’s only brought more bloodshed. Likewise, the King wants to protect his people and Gregory is a coward. How can Rick unite the groups?
