Who Else Might Switch Sides In The Walking Dead Finale?
Dwight And Eugene’s Role Reversals
There’s always room for error when dealing with espionage, but several characters on The Walking Dead appear to have already switched sides. These shapeshifters are Dwight, Eugene, and maybe Sasha.
In addition to physical good and bad teams, there’s also Carol and Morgan, who originally tried to avoid confrontations, but now seem to be on the front lines of the rapidly approaching battlefield.
With so much flip-flopping, there’s likely room for more traitors to emerge.
Eugene remains a mystery, but he seems like the type of guy who will do whatever it takes to remain alive. Unfortunately, Gregory is a lot like this. We’ve seen him side with Simon and do little to truly lead his people.
There’s a chance that Gregory could do real harm to Maggie. In “Something They Need,” he briefly contemplated using his knife on Maggie, but then revealed himself too weak to even take out a walker for his own good.
If given the right opportunity, Gregory would join the Saviors.
Can Dwight Actually Be Trusted?
Dwight is the next major question. He seems like he’s in the place to leave the Saviors and help Rick’s war. At the same time, he gave up Dr. Carson without a second thought in order to save himself.
It’s odd and concerning that Negan has asked where his right-hand man is, which may mean there’s something else going on with Dwight. There’s always a chance that he’s still playing both sides.
Negan said a “little birdie” told him that Rick was gathering troops, and as far as we know, Dwight’s the only one who really knows anything. Sure, Negan probably has spies all over, but Dwight still remains a mystery.
The good news is that the finale is right around the corner, so perhaps we’ll see the real Dwight very soon.
Do you think Daryl will ever trust Dwight?
