(WARNING: The following contains a potentially — albeit mysteriously — SPOILER-laden image from the second half of The Walking Dead Season 7. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise.)
Now, with the second half of #TheWalkingDead's seventh season still several weeks away from hitting our screens, you might have thought that the show's publicity machine would be taking a well-earned break from defending the gang's lack of action, and the irresponsible scarcity of tiger-centric episodes.
That, though, doesn't seem to be the case, seeing as...
This New 'The Walking Dead' Image Teases A Mysterious Stranger
Specifically, the image — recently unveiled by EW — appears to show a brand new character meeting #AndrewLincoln's #RickGrimes, albeit in a context that offers strikingly few other clues beyond the fact that it looks a bit like a junkyard.
Could the mysterious figure be a minor character from an earlier season, thought lost but now returned? An agent of #Negan sent to throw Grimes's upcoming rebellion out of whack? Or simply a shiny new character, perhaps one offering an intriguing solution to our heroes' problems?
Well, with #AMC having recently revealed that the second half of the show's seventh season will feature "new survivors in incredible places," it seems more likely that we're talking about the latter. Could the figure in the image above even be the tantalizingly teased "Boots" from the mid-season finale?
We'll presumably find out once the show returns on February 12.
What do you think, though? Just who is the mysterious figure in that there image? Let us know below!
