These 5 Things Make The Scavengers Different From ANY Group We’ve Seen Before…


The Scavengers Are Tactical

The wardrobes consist of bicycle chains and they’ve all got their hair slicked back with various junkyard oils. In some ways, the Scavengers may have accepted the outbreak better than any of the other groups.

The Scavengers Live In A Hive

According to Jadis actress Pollyanna McIntosh, the junkyard is like a hive and the Scavengers also move in the way insects would circle prey.

The Scavengers Are Thieves

The Saviors steal, but they do so like a bully versus a ninja. The only reason Father Gabriel was taken is because he caught Tamiel. Other than that, the Scavengers move in the shadow and take, or else they “don’t bother…”

The Scavengers Have Their Own Language

The more Jadis speaks, the less she really says. The Scavengers have developed their own language and they move according to hand gestures versus Democratic (or Dictatorship) decisions, like everyone else.

The Scavengers Are Mysterious

Jadis claimed she had never heard of the Saviors, but perhaps this is true because they truly live in the shadows. She told Rick very little about their ways but agreed to help in exchange for guns. At this point, it’s difficult to determine how they might help, or if they’ll help, but anything is better than working for the Saviors.

Do you think these people can be trusted?
