Does This New ‘Walking Dead’ Photo Answer the Boots Mystery?
The Walking Dead has plenty of ground to cover when Season 7 picks up again in February, so is there time to introduce another community? Looks like we’re going to find out, as new photo introduces an apparent junkyard gang, and perhaps an answer to the boot-wearing mystery figure from the midseason finale.
Entertainment Weekly debuted a new shot from the February 12 premiere, which appears to see Rick meeting the leader of yet another community of survivors, apparently in a junkyard.
Showrunner Scott Gimple wouldn’t identify any of the figures (least of all as our boots-wearing watcher), but offered of the new community:
I’m just going to say that Rick is going to meet this person and/or persons pretty quickly. The answers are just around the heap. I cannot wait for people to meet this character and to see this actor. There is some formidable fun coming up.
We’re going to go ahead into some actual spoilers from here on out, but the junkyard setting does appear to match that of a mysterious armored walker from the tail end of the most recent trailer.
And if you really want to ruin things for yourself, TheSpoilingDead has a pretty solid answer on who our new junkyard figures are, and what they might (or might not) have to do with the figure observed tailing Rick and Aaron outside of Alexandria.
All will be revealed when The Walking Dead returns us to Season 7 on February 12, so stay tuned for the latest.
