The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus Finally Reveals The Name Of Daryl’s Dog!

After leaving us all guessing the name of Daryl’s dog (Belgian Malinois) after seeing the Sneek Preview this week, Norman Reedus has finally revealed the name of him.

We see in this Instagram Post that he confirms the name of the dog to be Seven. However what we don’t know is why he’s been called Seven. This is a much-needed companion for Daryl after exiling himself from the rest of the world, still searching for Ricks body.

However, we all know that animals don’t really live for that long in The Walking Dead. Countless horses, wild dogs, even pigs have had very little screen time. Daryl seems to be attached to this dog, and we all know how destructive he can be if he ever loses something he loves. Let’s just hope Seven is in it for the long run.

Norman Reedus tells ComicBook that working with Seven is “So good.”

“I love it. I think he’s the smartest cast member we got.”

“We just did a scene the other day that ended up being the opposite of what it was supposed to be because the dog just wanted to do something else, and it came out so much better. He’ll probably be running the show. It’s great! I love it. He loves me, too.”

Norman Reedus also tells Deadline that the second half of Season 9 is “F*cking epic.” 

“They’re f*cking epic, you know, and they’re just crushing and they’re severe, all of them,” Reedus told Deadline. “The show’s morphing into something else but it’s got the heart and the feel of the original show, there’s just new life breathing through it.”

The Walking Dead airs Sundays in the US at 9/8c on AMC, as well as 9pm Monday’s on FOX in the UK.

The Walking Dead: Andrew Lincoln’s View On Recasting Rick Grimes

the-walking-dead-season-9-rick-andrew-lincoln 

Back in 2010 on the 31st October, Rick Grimes story in the TV series The Walking Dead began. Waking up from his coma, he struggled to come to terms with the world. After finding a pizza delivery boy named Glenn (Steven Yeun) and a few others Rick travels with them back to their main camp just outside of the city. Finding his family Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) Rick had only one purpose in this post-apocalyptic world, which was to protect his family at all costs (But we all know how that turned out, poor Rick!).

But what would happen if Rick’s role was to be recast to a younger actor? Andrew Lincoln tells THR that he would be perfectly ok with a recasting of Rick.

“Why not? I think the possibilities are endless.”

“It’s an extraordinary environment and landscape, the mythology that Robert Kirkman has created, and I love that. I want to see that with Negan. That’s a backstory that I want to see on the mothership, I’m fascinated by it. But this franchise can pull people backwards and forwards. I would love to see Michael Rooker [who played Merle] back on screen in a miniseries. With these kinds of shows, we are afforded the opportunity to bounce around narratively and be able to play with time.”

We did see Rick work with his preapocalyptic and apocalyptic partner Shane (Jon Bernthal) one last time on Ricks final episode of The Walking Dead, which aired on the 4th of November 2018.

“It was a bit of a fever dream.”

“To have Bernthal show up with his Punisher hair straight from set felt both like so much time had passed and that no time had lapsed. We fell back into the same relationship. It was amazing to work with him, Sonequa Martin-Green and one of my favourite people, Scott Wilson. To have the privilege of working with him yet again was magnificent. There were three times this season that I came home and it just felt like this is why I became an actor. It reminded me of the early seasons and how much fun and how satisfying the whole journey has been.”

The Walking Dead airs Sundays in the US at 9/8c on AMC, as well as 9pm Monday’s on FOX in the UK.

How Did Aaron Get His ‘New’ Arm?

Image result for aaron the walking dead

Aaron (Ross Marquand) hasn’t had much luck since his arrival on the show. We’ve seen him be knocked out by Rick (Andrew Lincoln) trapped in a car with Daryl (Norman Reedus), surrounded by walkers (Ok maybe that could be a good thing), going overboard and almost being killed by walkers, completely beaten up by the Saviours, lost his boyfriend, and now most recently even lost his arm!

In Season 9 Episode 2 “The Bridge” a herd of walkers heads to the logging site after Justin (Zach McGowan) fails to respond to the signal to divert it away. As the herd enters the logging site, Aaron sacrifices himself to save someone else. However, in the process, he ends up having his arm completely crushed by a log.

After he gets back to camp after being saved by Rick and the other communities, Enid (Katelyn Nacon) is left alone to perform surgery on him after Siddiq (Avi Nash) leaves to treat the ill at Alexandria. Enid has no other choice but to amputate his arm as Daryl holds him down. That’s the last we see of Aaron in the episodes leading up to Ricks Departure.

“It’s not the end of the world anymore… It’s the start of a whole new one” – Aaron

Now, after the 6-year time jump we see Aaron stronger than ever, still with his adopted daughter Gracie as well as a new very skillfully crafted arm. But the question is, where on earth did he get that from? It’s certainly not from Thanos (Marvel) that’s for sure!

So, the only explanation I do have for the crafting of it would be from Hilltop. The book, “A key to the future” was given to Maggie by Georgie (Jayne Atkinson) in the exchange of a vinyl record collection, which tells us they’re from a very large established community if they’re looking for stuff like that. This book includes a huge amount of knowledge to rebuild civilisation, building blueprints, how to precisely look after crops and a huge amount of ideas and plans to build a future. Now, this book could also include things from a medical point of view like the amputation of an arm. Enid looks through a book as she’s about to amputate Aarons’ arm.

Yes, she is Siddiq’s apprentice so it would be the simple thing to do looking in a book to see how to amputate. However, this could also be foreshadowing for the future that to rebuild something as difficult as an arm could be in the book “A key to the future”. Remember Georgie’s group can only be a very established group so building a fake arm could certainly be in there.

But who could craft such a device? Earl (John Finn) is the official and only qualified Blacksmith that we’ve been told about. If you remember, Earl is the one that attacked Maggie (Lauren Cohan) after being persuaded by Gregory (Xander Berkeley) to assassinate her which failed. In the first episode of Season 9 Earls son Ken (AJ Achinger) talks about his father needing an apprentice. So we know that Earl is a qualified blacksmith, that has the knowledge to teach new people. 

Our only guess would be that Earl was the one that crafted the arm for Aaron, by following close instructions from the book “A key to the future”. We’ll eventually find out as the season unfolds.

But it’s not all doom and gloom for Aaron, as with the loss of his boyfriend Eric (Keith Andrew Gostel) he gained an adopted daughter named Gracie. She was born in the apocalypse a few months before the war began between the Saviours and the Militia. But how did Aaron come across Gracie? Well. Her father who looked after her was killed in a fight with Rick Grimes. Expecting to find an armoury in the room he was guarding, Rick instead finds Gracie inside that reduces him to tears as he knows he can’t now leave her behind. He instantly thought of Judith and what would happen once Rick departed. Once the outpost has been secured, Rick brings Gracie outside and lets Aaron take care of her after he’s still distraught from losing his boyfriend, Eric.

The Walking Dead Origins: Glenn?

Being just about everyone’s favourite character on The Walking Dead, Glenn (Steven Yeun) could be a very potential character to come back and play his role BEFORE he came across Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) trapped in that tank.
Hey you… Dumbass… Yeah, you in the tank… Cozy in there? – Glenn

We’ve heard a number of possibilities, like Abraham and Eugene, Shane, aswell as communities like Terminus. But what would we see of Glenn if he was given an Origins story of his own?

In Episode 2 of Season 1 “Guts” we’re told briefly about Glenn’s past as Daryl (Norman Reedus) asks what he used to do before the apocalypse.

“Hey kid, what did you do before all this?” – Daryl

“Delivered pizzas why?” – Glenn

This could be a great opportunity to use for an origin story of Glenn. The fandom is there to support it, so why not?

Who wouldn’t love to see Glenn one more time when so many people hoped for his appearance in Ricks last episode, but had their hearts broken once more as it never occurred.

But what could we see of Glenn? We could see his very first “geek” kill after the outbreak started, how his family died. We could even see him delivering his pizzas around the city, as that’s where his main looting trait came from, knowing the quickest ways around to get to and from places.

The main story possible though for Glenn in the Origins spinoffs, would be him searching for his family. If you didn’t know originally, he fails to reconnect with them in Macon, Georgia as the outbreak begins so instead heads to Atlanta in hope to find his brother. This is where the comic book/TV series begins as he joins onto the group on the outskirts, leading the supply run group in and out of the city.

He even made an appearance in TellTales The Walking Dead game back in the first season, as this is his story BEFORE the Comics/TV Series. You would have expected the voicing of him to be Steven Yeun, however it was a voice actor named Nick Herman. Who still did a great job.

Lee Everitt (The main character in the game of Season 1, partially adopts Glenn’s story line instead).

So what do you think? Is there any possibility Steven Yeun could reprise his role as fan favourite Glenn? Let me know below!

The Walking Dead Origins: Terminus?

Related image

As we all know previously announced on Talking Dead the other week, there will be three movies starring Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). Scott Gimple, also goes onto say that they will be exploring the past, present and quite possibly the future of The Walking Dead universe.

Everyone’s been trying to guess, including myself about past stories especially we may find. I’ll post a link to one of my other theories at the end of this one, but for now, let’s get on with Terminus.

Back at the end of Season Four, and running into a few episodes of Season Five Terminus wasn’t around for long. This is one of the reasons I think we may see more of Terminus, I feel like their real story wasn’t completely told. Yes, at the beginning of Season 5 were shown a short clip of how Terminus was, but only AFTER the bandits came and changed everything. How excellent would it be to see Gareth (Andrew J. West) and Mary (Denise Crosby) in a very different time? Before they were ruthless, unforgiving cannibals.

If you’re a fanatic of The Walking Dead, then you will remember the very deceiving trailer we were given for Season 5. It shows us Terminus believing them about Washington and deciding to actually agree to go with them. But does this happen in the show? No. So this is certainly one reason why I think they could give us more on Terminus, to redeem what they promised in the trailer.

Another reason is that the past of Terminus is very different from the one we’re actually shown. Terminus was once a true place, offering sanctuary for all like the signs said to Rick and the rest of his group previously. However, these signs were very old and hadn’t been touched in a long time. The group didn’t think of that though before arriving, they were drawn into this place after the destruction of the prison, that they lived in for almost 2 Seasons.

The original residents were Mary and a few others, Mary is the character that Carol shoots and leaves for the dead in her most badass episode to date. As they put up these signs, they welcomed in any resident and fed them and gave them a place to stay as well as walls to hide behind. But as the apocalypse grew darker and darker, so did the people as we’re told that one group in particular (Bandits) came and took over the whole town. And for unanswered questions, they kept a number of them in train carts before killing some at random as well as raping the women over and over.

After weeks of the bandits owning Terminus, they manage to escape the carts and overcome them resulting in retaking the town. As punishments for the bandits they hadn’t already killed in retaliation, Mary and the others had no choice but to resort to Cannibalism. This was due to the bandits completely eating their whole food supply. Eating most of the group, they did keep one member of them alive however which was their leader. We see this leader as Glenn opens one of the crates as they’re escaping that has clearly become deranged after he was tortured over and over by the original group. As this was the first time they encountered something like this, they crafted a new idea in how they live at Terminus. They kept up their signs to bait in people like Rick and his group so they never had to grow food, as people seeking shelter always ended up there. Only to have their throats slit and drained of blood, to then be decapitated and eventually eaten.

The leader of the group, Gareth (Mary’s son) leads this idea as he begins to run the new Terminus. Their motto “You’re the butcher or you’re the cattle.” was proof that they once were good people, but had to become the butcher to survive. They did still offer the people who arrived at Terminus a chance though, they asked them if they wanted to accept their way of life and become a Cannibal however if they refused they were captured and well, you know the rest.

So this is definitely another reason that I think they could certainly create an Origin story of Terminus. As we never actually get to see it. We only see it as the bandits have taken over.

Got any other ideas for Origin stories? Let me know below!

Where is Sherry? Explained!

Related image

Being one of Negan’s (Jeffery Dean Morgan) wives in The Walking Dead. Sherry (Christine Evangelista), was one of Negans wives. She became one of his few wives because of a failed attempt at stealing medicine, trying to escape with husband Dwight (Austin Amelio) and sister Tina (Liz E. Morgan). Suffering from diabetes, Tina required regular doses of Insulin to stay alive. She was given the opportunity to become one of Negan’s wives in exchange for regular doses of it instead of purchasing it. But shortly after considering it she escaped with Dwight and Sherry after they decided to steal the medicine instead.

During the reign of the Saviours, we see Sherry create a connection with Daryl (Norman Reedus) after she realises that he was the one that saved them back in Episode 6 of Season 6 “Always Accountable”. Plotting against the Saviours, she helps Daryl escape and eventually escapes herself presumably with more of Negan’s wives.

But where does Sherry run to? We see in Episode 11 of Season 7 that she left a note at a cabin where she and Dwight used to like to visit, along with both of her wedding rings. She admits to being the one that freed Daryl and even apologises for her forcing Dwight into that state of life at the Sanctuary. She even tells him that it would be possible for her and Dwight to get back together if he ever finds her. Her current whereabouts after that are unknown as it’s the last mention we’ve had of her.

Now that the new world has begun, with a six-year time jump, we haven’t had a mention of either Dwight or Sherry. Maybe that’s to come? Maybe they might have made up and continued to survive on their own or with the other wives Negan had. However, one thing that we do know is that there is a large group of terrifying Villains coming that we had our first hint at in the latest episode, The Whisperers.

In the comics there is a very unpleasant scene involving a number of pikes in a field, I won’t go too into it as I don’t want to spoil what’s to come. But this could very well be the fate of Sherry, as well as a number of the other wives. It’s even possible Dwight could be there too.

There are a number of possibilities for Sherry, she could have come across Oceanside or even Hilltop. Hopefully, we will find out, but I think it will be in the second half of the season at least before we even are hinted at their survival.

Who knows, she could even be recruited into the Whisperers. Which would be an interesting plotline if she ever comes across Daryl again.

Where do you think Sherry is? Let me know below!
