The writers of "The Walking Dead" are sending a message to us that the end is near for one of our main survivors.
As you may or may not know, the main characters of The Walking Dead have one thing in common. ... They all have chosen a particular means of protection from the gruesome Walkers.
Be it a hammer, katana, bo staff, or crossbow (to name a few) our heroes are armed with the most comfortable means of bashing brains they can get.
With that being said, our "heroes" are often seen in battle mode wielding these weapons. Often times they are gathered together in a circular pattern to protect all sides from attack.
It is obvious that we are seeing an adult version of the famous TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.
Each character has his or her own unique look. The clothes that they wear are stylish, yet practical for fighting. What they wear does not change (like most superheroes). Each character has a unique dialect and way of speaking. But most of all they have become masters of their own weapons.
The NINJA TURTLES were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in the early 80s just as a joke. One thing led to another and the little "heroes in a half shell" took the world by storm.
A huge pattern in the Turtles saga was formed around DAREDEVIL's story. The Sensai that mentored Daredevil was named STICK, the turtles had SPLINTER, the gang that menaced DAREDEVIL was "the Hand" and the turtles went up against "the Foot Clan". Even the origin was similar, both being hit the a drum of toxic chemicals.
The two guys who joked about little reptiles saving the city were onto something big.
My theory is quite up front and simple. In episode two of this season's WALKING DEAD we come across a very interesting (and quite disturbing) image, we see Enid, a young girl alone in the woods trying to survive.
Why in the world would we see her eating a TORTOISE? Of all things. I mean let's face it, we have seen people eat rabbits, squirrels, mice, rats, and even a snake or two in survival mode. But I have NEVER, even in my wildest dreams think of snacking on a tortoise to survive. That is a sign.
Yes, oh yes. We are going to see one of our "heroes" kick the bucket real soon.
