Rick Grimes is in a coma at the hospital and all the events on The Walking Dead are just playing out as a fevered dream in his subconscious.
This is one of the more popular theories out there about how The Walking Dead will end - although if it actually went down this way it's also probably one of the lamest and most madding.
Luckily, though, it looks like I will be able to keep my rage in check because Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has finally spoken out about this theory and confirmed that... IT'S NOT TRUE!
Thank all that is undead, this is awesome news! I don't know about you, but I would find it totally unsatisfying if the conclusion of the 125th season of The Walking Dead ('cuz you know this show is going to go on forever!) saw Rick wake up in an Atlanta hospital bed with a young Carl and a not-dead Lori looking over him and telling him everything was going to be all right.
Kirkman wasn't finished there though, as this next teasy tweet proved:
Just to confirm, he is joking. I checked.
So, if we're now free of the "it's all a dream" ending, how exactly will The Walking Dead conclude? Only Kirkman knows the answer to that question, but I'd still like to hear your theories. Will it all end happily ever after? Or is Rick doomed to watch all those around him perish and left to wander a barren wastelands?
