WARNING: Possible spoilers for The Walking Dead TV and comic series ahead.
The countdown is on until the massive 90-minute finale of [The Walking Dead](series:201193) next Sunday night, and thank goodness it's a feature length episode, because there are just so many unanswered questions that need to be tied up with a nice bow before we're sentenced to an entire summer without Rick Grimes and the gang.
Check out the 6 biggest questions from Season 5 of The Walking Dead that we need answers for by the end of the season finale:
1. Who are the Wolves?
Way back in episode 9, "What Happened and What's Going On" we came across Noah's walled community which had been completely destroyed in the time he had been in Atlanta. During the episode we noticed two signs which both read 'Wolves not far.' Just who are the Wolves, and what exactly do they want?
2. Who carved the 'W's' into the walkers?
In the same episode that we saw the Wolves signs, we also had our first glance at the mysterious walkers with the 'W's' carved into their foreheads. Personally, I believe that the Wolves and these walkers are linked, but the mystery remains - why do they do this?
3. Where is Morgan?
There have been many theories thrown up about Morgan's whereabouts, some think he's a part of the Wolves, some think he's still on his own and that he's the one carving letters into the heads of walkers, except instead of 'W's' they're actually 'M's'. Others think that he's still far behind Rick and the group and that we won't actually see him reach Alexandria any time soon. Last episode Aaron and Daryl noticed a campfire away in the distance, could this have belonged to Morgan? These are things we need to know!
4. What will Nicholas do with Rick's gun?
I have to admit, I'm pretty glad we finally figured out where Rick's blender gun was. Earlier on I had placed all bets on it being Enid who took the gun, but it seems like it was slimy Nicholas all along. Seeing this gun for a second time means that something is definitely going to go down with it, possibly a death - I only hope it's not one of Rick's group.
5. Will Rick be exiled?
After the events of episode 15, "Try," I think most people will be treading pretty lightly around Rick. Although what he had to say was the truth, it was still said in a pretty crazy manner, and nobody wants to get too close to crazy. It will be very interesting to see exactly how Deanna will respond to Rick's actions and whether or not he'll be allowed to remain inside the walls of Alexandria.
6. Will Pete be killed?
Rick came pretty close last week, but it seems like Pete got a small reprieve after Deanna broke up the fight. Despite this, the question of what to do with Pete still looms.
It will be interesting to see if the TV show follows this arc to the same conclusion as the comic series, which ultimately ended up with Pete dead after he tried to challenge Rick with a knife, but was instead shot dead. After all, everyone knows you don't bring a knife to a gun fight.
Check out this preview and see if you can spot any clues as to what will go down in season finale:
