The Walking Dead viewers may have missed a huge moment during Season 7’s fourth episode on Sunday night.
The Walking Dead viewers may have missed a huge moment during Season 7’s fourth episode on Sunday night. All the clues were there, and some very observant fans noticed something pretty amazing between Daryl and Rick.
Warning: Major Walking Dead Season 7 spoilers below.
According to Comic Book, a new Walking Dead theory is making the rounds online. The theory, which started on Reddit, claims that Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes may have been speaking to each other in Morse code throughout the entire episode. Fans believe that Daryl’s rapid blinking upon arriving at Alexandria with Negan was a message to Rick. Of course, many viewers also believe that Rick sent his own message to Daryl by taping Negan’s bat, Lucille, on the ground.
While this latest Walking Dead Season 7 theory may be hard to believe, it does appear that it’s very likely. As fans will remember, at the beginning of the extended 90-minute episode a large poster of the American morse code was seen hanging on the wall at Rick’s Alexandria home. Many viewers noticed this poster, and now it seems to be a hint at the secret exchange between Daryl and Rick.
While no one knows yet what Rick and Daryl’s secret messages may have been about, Blasting News reports that it does seem likely that the two friends are cooking up some plan to hopefully take Negan down and return Daryl home to Alexandria where he belongs.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Rick and Daryl‘s Morse code moment wasn’t the only shocking part of Sunday’s episode. The Walking Dead fans watched as Negan and The Saviors made their first trip to Alexandria to collect supplies from the group. However, instead of taking half of everything, Negan decided to take all of some things, such as the guns, and leave others, like the food, untouched. While Rick looked angry, his fear took over and he decided that it was much better to follow Negan’s orders than to get anyone else in the group killed. Negan’s visit was intense, but it was an emotional scene between Rick and Michonne that had fans talking.
During the scene, Rick tells Michonne about his friendship with Shane, and how it was Shane who led Lori and Carl to safety when the apocalypse began. However, when Rick finally found his wife and son, Shane and Lori were already engaged in a sexual relationship, which they ended upon Rick’s arrival. Later, when Lori found out that she was pregnant, the big question was about the paternity of the baby. Rick told Michonne all about the difficult time, and also revealed that he knew baby Judith wasn’t his. Rick was candid and honest as he revealed that Shane was the father of the child, but that he loved her with all of his heart and would die for her. Of course, this is the first time that Rick has mentioned Shane in years, and the memory of the situation took Walking Dead fans back to the beginning of the series. Michonne seemed to sympathize with Rick, and later agreed to try and find a way to live under Negan’s thumb.
Meanwhile, spoilers for the next four episodes have been revealed and claim that Maggie and Sasha will finally find themselves at the Hilltop. This will be the first time that Walking Dead fans see Maggie since Glenn’s death in the Season 7 premiere. Meanwhile, Rick will also reportedly lose control and set Alexandria on fire during the mid-season finale.
It looks like fans of The Walking Dead have a lot to look forward to as Season 7 continues to push towards the mid-season finale.
What do you think about Rick and Daryl’s alleged morse code messages during The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 4?
In the fifth episode, Maggie and Sasha will arrive at The Hilltop. This is where the doctor is who can possibly help Maggie with her pregnancy. In the comic book series, Maggie decides to move out of Alexandria and stay at the Hilltop following Glenn’s death. She fits in well with the people there, and eventually becomes their leader.
In The Walking Dead‘s sixth episode of Season 7, fans will see the Oceanside community for the first time. This plot will finally reveal where Tara and Heath ended up when they went out for a run and were never seen again. During their journey, they’ll come across the Oceanside survivors. Oceanside will reportedly become aligned with Alexandria, The Kingdom, and The Hilltop in the future. Sadly, spoilers reveal that either Tara or Heath will die in this episode.
The shocking seventh episode of the season will see Rick lose his mind over Negan’s mental torture. Rick will decide that he can no longer live under Negan’s thumb and he will resort to very drastic measures in order to get Negan out of his life. Rick will reportedly set Alexandria on fire. The report doesn’t reveal if the community will be completely destroyed or not, but it does seem that significant damage will be done.
In The Walking Dead‘s Season 7’s mid-season finale, viewers will watch as Rick will finally come up with a plan to kill Negan. Alexandria and The Hilltop will likely work together on the plan. However, since Negan is still alive in the comic book series, it seems safe to say that Rick’s plan will not work. Although, he may be able to make some progress in getting The Saviors out of their lives.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, another death is likely coming in the mid-season finale. In the comic book series, the character of Spencer wants to overthrow Rick as the leader of Alexandria, and he asks for Negan’s help to do so. When Spencer asks Negan to kill Rick, Negan gets offended by Spencer’s lack of guts, and proceeds to kill him. This could very likely happen in episode 8, and leave fans shocked until Season 7 resumes in February.
“Walking Dead” fans are abuzz today believing that they may have uncovered a big Easter egg that revealed on Sunday night’s airing that Daryl may have gotten a message through to Rick using Morse Code. Did you notice that at the beginning of the show the camera flashed to a poster hanging on the wall of Rick’s home of the Morse Code chart?
If you haven’t seen Sunday’s show turn back now, spoilers below!
The ‘Walking Dead’ communication between brothers, Rick and Daryl message revealed?
Well, if you missed that tidbit you may have also missed what some die-hard fans claim was a scene between Rick and Daryl at Alexandria making some serious eye contact with each other after Negan denied them the opportunity to speak to each other. The scene everyone is talking about shows Daryl looking hard into Rick’s eyes, but blinking in a weird pattern.
What first looked as though Daryl was just having trouble focusing his visionthrough his swollen eyes may have been their way of communicating, with Daryl telling Rick with his eyes that he was okay in a way that went unnoticed by Negan.
Daryl Dixon continues to be a man of very few words, people think he may have been speaking with his eyes.
That picture of the Morse code board was featured in an earlier shot from Alexandria, so there’s a decent chance Rick’s gang of survivors learned it specifically for a situation where someone can’t speak and need to let their friends know something important. There’s a lot of debate as to exactly what Daryl blinked at Rick, but fans are convinced there’s a code in there that could lead Rick right to the Savior’s front door.
Some believe he’s saying ‘6 miles east of Hilltop’ … is this where the Saviors are located? Others think he’s referring to the State Highway 6 East. Then there’s those who believe he’s telling Rick the Saviors are headed to Hilltop next. Maybe he’s not saying anything at all and just can’t see in that Georgia sun.
If he was signaling something to Rick about Hilltop, we’ll know about it soon.The Walking Dead continues to travel from community to community with each episode, and next week’s show is all about Hilltop. Will Rick snap out of his reverie and fight now that Maggie is in danger? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Are Rick and company smarter than they reveal on the ‘Walking Dead’?
Fans have spent the night de-coding what Daryl’s blinks could have been quietly saying to Rick, and to the best of their knowledge the series of odd blinks in Morse Code meant just that, he was okay. Could it be that Rick and the group spent some time behind the walls of Alexandria learning to use Morse Code should the situation arise to keep in contact with each other?
At this time it has not been confirmed, but it sure is an interesting theory, and should it prove true, then Rick and Daryl in the near future stand a real chance at plotting to take Negan down when he is least expecting it. Something to consider. Another surprise/non-surprise came when Rick admitted to Michonne that Judithwas NOT his biological daughter and that his former friend/enemy Shane had actually fathered her. Rick detailed the weeks to Michonne that led up to his return to Lori and Carl, and how it was his duty to protect Judith with his life. See, “Walking Dead” fans? Rick is still a stand-up guy despite how things may look at this time.
Some fans are calling the storyline between Rick and Negan boring, calling for Rick to man-up and just take Negan out sooner rather than later. But, all “Walking Dead” comic fans are well aware that things are just beginning to set up in the story for Rick and company to engage in all-out war in the future. And, when it does all finally come to a head all hell will break loose — making the past battles Rick and the group have fought look like a walk in the park compared to what is yet to come.
So, what are your thoughts on Sunday night episode of the “Walking Dead” Do you agree, or disagree with the Morse Code theory? #The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead aired the fourth episode of Season 7 on Sunday night, and fans now have a lot to process. The episode featured many intense scenes with Rick, Michonne, Negan, Daryl, Rosita, and Spencer. However, one emotional moment is what really shocked fans.
Warning: Major spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7 below.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The Walking Dead finally answered a huge question in this week’s episode. Viewers watched as Rick and Michonne shared an intimate moment in Alexandria after Negan and The Saviors had raided their homes and taken all of their guns. Rick finally opened up to Michonne about his former best friend, Shane, whom he killed back in Season 2.
As many fans will remember, Shane was Rick’s best friend and partner on the police force. The two were very close, like brothers. However, when Rick was shot and put into a coma, Shane took it upon himself to lead Rick’s wife, Lori, and their son, Carl, to safety when the zombie apocalypse started. Shane, thinking Rick was dead, told Lori and Carl that they’d never see him again. However, Rick woke up, and with the help of Glenn, Andrea, T-Dogg, and others, made his way back to his family. By this point, Lori and Shane were already involved in a sexual relationship. However, the two kept it a secret from Rick until months later when Lori discovered she was pregnant.
Walking Dead fans watched as Rick and Shane’s friendship deteriorated and Shane grew increasingly jealous and angry about Rick returning to their lives. When Shane found out that Lori was pregnant he believed the child to be his and even decided to kill Rick. Thankfully, Rick was on to his plan and killed Shane to save his own life. Later, Lori died while giving birth to baby Judith, and no one mentioned the fact that the baby could be Shane’s ever again. That is, until Sunday’s episode. Rick poured his heart out to Michonne and told her the whole story. He then admitted that he knew Judith was not his child, but that he loved her with all of his heart.
This is the first time that The Walking Dead viewers have heard Rick mention Shane’s name in years, and his shocking confession about Judith’s paternity was a stunner for fans. It looks like this long unanswered question has finally been put to bed.
Actor, Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick on The Walking Dead, recently revealed his thoughts on the big reveal.
“I think voicing it aloud. It’s one of those watershed moments that happens, certainly between the two lovers, between Michonne and Rick, that brings them together. It’s a very important moment in understanding his psyche and going, ‘This is what I’ve been doing for the last two years. I’ve accepted the situation and I will accept the situation if it’s going to save lives and if it’s going to protect the people I love. I will take it.’ It’s another perfect kind of quiet heroism. You know, he’s a stepdad and it doesn’t stop him loving his child, but he kind of has accepted that it’s not his.”
It will be interesting to see if Rick ever brings up Judith’s paternity again on the series, or if perhaps Carl will ever find out that Judith is only his half-sister. Carl is totally in love with Judith, and it likely wouldn’t change the way he feels about her, but it could alter his perception of Lori.
What are your thoughts on the latest Walking Dead shocker? Did you know all along that Judith was Shane’s daughter and not Rick’s baby?
It seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel for Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) group of survivors under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) judgment. Both Rick and Daryl (Norman Reedus) have been completely under Negan, in fear of losing more of their family should they do something against the big bad.
The only characters who still cannot accept the fact that this is the way life has to be are Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Rosita (Christian Serratos). The rest of the survivors in Alexandria seemed hesitant to follow Rick’s choice to give Negan control but accepted the situation anyway.
Fans are getting riled up about the fact that these strong group of people, who were once an indestructible force, are being pushed down by these “Saviors”. Rick has lost control, Daryl is completely broken, Maggie and Sasha have gone to the Hilltop, and with Abraham and Glenn dead, that leaves the group’s safety in jeopardy.
During the course of the episode titled, “Service”, Negan and Dwight seemed hell-bent on bullying the rest of the group. From humiliating Rick in front of everyone, to calling Olivia out with fat jokes, targeting Enid and her sentimental balloons, taunting Rosita and Spencer, to tormenting Daryl even more.
Several interesting theories about Daryl has immediately been posted on the internet. In one theory, fans have speculated that Daryl’s tongue was cut off.
When Negan arrived along with a silenced and broken Daryl Dixon, he and Dwight taunted Daryl by asking him questions that he did not answer. Now, this has caused some fans to think if Negan cut Daryl’s tongue out. After all, he was asked twice, and did not utter a single word. Rick asked Negan if Daryl could stay, in which Negan said no, unless Daryl could “talk” him into it.
As expected, Daryl did not say a word. Near the end of the episode, Dwight showed Daryl his motorcycle saying, “You could have it back, all you need to do is ask.” forcing Daryl to speak, which he did not do. Did Negan or Dwight cut Daryl’s tongue off? It wouldn’t be much of a surprise, after all, Negan was not impressed by his stubbornness.
Showrunners already know how fans would react if they kill Daryl off, especially after killing Glenn and Abraham just a few weeks prior. They wouldn’t dare erase one more survivor from the show, or would they? Maybe cutting Daryl’s tongue off is their way of saying that no one is safe, and no one is untouchable on the show.
After all, Norman Reedus himself have said in an interview that his character could definitely die on the show. So, did fans see a tongue-less Daryl last Sunday? Or was Daryl secretly sending Rick a message without speaking a word?
Some fans have also speculated that Daryl was sending Rick a message by means of Morse Code. At the beginning of the episode, fans can clearly see a huge “American Morse Code” poster in Rick’s home.
In a scene much later in the episode, fans see Daryl blinking in what seems like a sequence. Could this be a message? It is a far-fetched idea, but with this show, it is not impossible.
