If you haven’t seen The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 3 yet, then I suggest you stop reading because SPOILERS ensue!
If Fear the Walking Dead seemed like light-hearted fare compared to its parent series, the opening episodes of Season 6 have up the ante to almost an impossible level to follow. Rick and the gang face the biggest threat to their survival as they battle herds of walkers, the Wolves (human predators) and even dissension within their ranks (the Alexandria originals).
When this episode aired, social media went berserk with SPOILERS about Glenn’s alleged death. However, that ‘death’ scene was a puzzling one. Even as Nicholas blows his brains out and knocks Glenn into the walker hordes surrounding their dumpster refuge, we see walkers do what they do best but why are they pulling intestines out of Glenn’s chest?
Well, those are not Glenn’s intestines, they are Nicholas’! And even as the camera pulls out, we witness the walkers reaching out trying to grab something – when really they should continuing to be tear Glenn apart. Of course, Glenn has somehow (miraculously) dragged his body under the dumpster and is still very much alive!
How’s that for a twist, eh? Have got to hand it to the writers of The Walking Dead for pulling this off even as things continue to look dire for Rick and gang. Kudos!
