Fans of TV's biggest and most beloved zombie apocalypse are used to mulling over a mystery during the break between seasons. The mid-season finale of left us with a whole bunch of questions to fuel speculation until the show returns in February 2017.

One focal point for fans was the mysterious figure watching Alexandria. We've debated before about who the unknown pair of boots belonged to, but we also saw a flash of a figure in a dark hoodie, watching Rick's settlement through a pair of binoculars.

It seems like there are a few viable options as to who this watcher could be: a totally new character from a new group, a Whisperer, someone from Rick's past, or could it be Dwight?

Readers of the Walking Dead comic books know that Dwight eventually approaches Rick and Ezekiel to ask them about teaming up to destroy Negan. At this point, the only person less popular in Alexandria than Dwight is his boss, so it makes sense that he'd need to case the joint before making any offers to Rick.

There also seems to be some visual evidence in the scene where Daryl raids one of the Saviors' rooms before he escapes. It seems pretty certain that it's Dwight's room.

In this image, you can see the flannel shirt that Dwight always wears, as well as a dark hoodie and a pair of binoculars. The most telling sign that it's Dwight's dorm, however, was the camera lingering on the wooden figure that Dwight carved.

Not conclusive evidence that Dwight is the one watching Alexandria, of course, but hard to ignore when coupled with Dwight's pre-existing comic book storyline. What do you guys think?

Prepare for February 2017 when the Walking Dead gang will RISE UP again:
