Work is well underway on the new season of The Walking Dead, and some new set pics hint that someone might be losing an appendage once the series resumes this fall.
Massive potential spoilers below!
All right, still here? Some new set pics appear to show Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) sporting a bandaged right hand while shooting some scenes. Hmm, a bandaged right hand. Sound familiar?
As fans of the comic know, Rick loses his right hand during a fight with The Governor, who slices it clean off. To this point, the series hasn’t followed that storyline (and instead had the TV-exclusive character Merle lose a hand in season one in an apparent homage to the concept).
So do the new pics mean that Rick might finally lose that hand, or at least a few fingers? We have no idea. But with the Governor (David Morrissey) still on the loose, and creator Robert Kirkman’s penchant for adapting the comic in ways we don’t expect, it stands to reason some type of hand injury could be in the works for dear ole’ Rick.
For now, all we can do is wonder and wait patiently until the new season returns in October. It’s going to be a long summer.
