So as we all know by now Maggie (Lauren Cohan) has come and gone, and if you don’t then you seriously need to catch up! In the last episode ‘Stradivarius’ we’re told that she’s finally gone and joined Georgie of the unknown group that Maggie and Enid had a brief encounter with back in Season 8. Trading a bunch of vinyl records for a book named ‘A key to a future’. This book contains a huge amount of knowledge that allowed them to rebuild civilisation. We see that in the time jump as new buildings have arisen, along with a huge amount of farmland.
Sending letters back and forth to each other, Maggie is sent them every once i na while to ask how they’re doing and always asked for her to come and join their group to build another community. And that’s exactly what she’s done, whether she felt that was her only path to take due to the feud she had with Michonne (Danai Gurira) over Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) we don’t know. But a popular theory has been cropping up wondering if she had something to do with the ‘X’ scarring on both Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) and Michonne’s backs, so far anyway.
So what does the show have planned for Maggie for when she finally returns? Being a fan favourite for millions since Season two, she definitely needs a good return for when it finally happens. Angela Kang (The Walking Dead Showrunner) is just about 100% confident that Lauren Cohan will be returning to portray Maggie’s story once more in Season 10. Season 10 will be the full force of the Whisperers most likely, as they’re in it for the long run as we see in the comics.
“We will hopefully come back to Maggie’s story in Season 10,” Kang told ComicBook.com on Tuesday. “Lauren and I have been texting about some things, and we’re hopefully gonna schedule a conversation, but Georgie’s group is definitely out there in the world doing some stuff, and I have some notion of what they’re up to. They may also be part of the universe in general. That’s really up to Scott, but we’ll see how it all plays out.” – Angela Kang
Angela then went on to say that she couldn’t reveal anything to do with Maggies exit just yet, but the extended universe of The Walking Dead could be a reason to go by.
“In our minds, there’s a lot of things going on in the world around our characters and the way that it intersects with our story. That’s part of what we’re talking about currently.” – Angela Kang
It hasn’t been confirmed yet that Lauren Cohan will once more portray the Maggie in the future, Angela Kang is almost certain that it will happen. Let’s hope Maggie does return, as Daryl, Carol and the rest of the survivors are going to need all the help they can get from The Whisperers.
