We saw a lot of weird things in The Walking Dead Episode 10, including spiky walkers, hordes of people hanging out in junkyards and Daryl Dixon cuddling up to a tiger, but the latest claim might just be outright madness.

After watching Episode 10, "New Best Friends" one extremely vision-blessed fan noticed something a little odd going on in the background of a scene. After Rick manages to kill Winslow the trash heap walker, he clambers back up to the "Up Up Up" to join Jadis and the two strike a deal, with Rick promising to get Jadis's group guns. However, viewer Angel Luis noticed that in the background on the far right of the screen something strange was happening. Take a look and see for yourself:

Yeah that's right, there's a few weird objects flying through the sky. While the things at the tree line are quite obviously birds, there's one other object above them that's traveling at a much fast speed than most birds. Take another look:

While your first instinct might be to chalk it up to a plane being accidentally caught in the background, remember that this scene was made using green screen so it seems a little strange to miss this detail, though it does seem like the most likely scenario.

However there is one other explanation besides birds and editing errors: UFOs. It might sound a little far fetched, but considering the fact that we're watching a show taking place in a world where zombies exist, aliens at least have to be suggested. Not to mention that when The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman originally pitched the comics, he mentioned there would be alien involvement. Kirkman told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2013:

"When I pitched The Walking Dead originally, it was turned down, simply because there had never been a successful zombie book in the history of comics. I wasn't willing to accept no for an answer. And so I said, ‘Oh, well, I forgot to tell you that this is actually a big setup for an alien invasion."

Apparently, Kirkman pitched that in the comics the zombies had been created by an alien race as a way for human beings to be wiped out before aliens took over Earth.

However, after three issues of the comic has been released, Kirkman then revealed there would be no aliens, admitting he'd tricked his publisher into accepting his zombie comic. Though interestingly there was a short spin-off Walking Dead comic released last year called The Walking Dead: The Alien, which told the story of Rick's brother, Jeff Grimes.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC with Episode 10 on February 26

Do you think there was a UFO in the background of Episode 10?
