Since the release on November 13 on AMC and the next day in France on OCS Shock, episode 4 of Season 7 of The Walking Dead , the theory of some fans that Daryl ( Norman Reedus ) have tried to communicate in Morse Rick ( Andrew Lincoln ) continues to fuel discussions. After all, since Negan ( Jeffrey Dean Morgan ) has banned two friends talking, such a method would be a rather clever way for the small community of Alexandria to organize, in silence, the response against the chief Saviours and troops. But this theory really holds it up? Not really if we are to believe the statements of showrunner Scott Gimple , interviewed by a journalist from Yahoo TV.
“This theory makes official the fact that viewers and fans of our series are simply the best,” he said excitedly, before belie a hint of speculation about the use of Morse code in The Walking Dead . “what I can say is that I love to live in a world in which Daryl Dixon control morse code on the fingertips, and knows with certainty that Rick also knows the walrus. I do not even kidding not. it would be completely badass. I love this theory. I love the degree of attention and imagination that viewers devoted to the series ” .
The Walking Dead S7: a surprising theory about episode 4
If it does not explicitly say that this fan theory is completely false, Scott Gimple still seems rather disprove things. But for those who really want to comprende why Daryl’s eyelids flicker, the showrunner offered an explanation of a different kind: “It was an incredibly sunny day” . Before embarking on his own version of the theory. “Andrew [Lincoln] and Norman [Reedus] are friends. So I think that the theory could be true, but not in history. What I mean is that it would not seem completely impossible for me that these two gentlemen, who are now incredibly close, have tried to communicate with each other during filming, to perhaps say something like “C ‘was a good decision. I really like what you have done ” .”
Unless, as in jokes himself Gimple in the interview, all this explanation was a ruse to distract us from the truth, that Morse has been used by Daryl to get a message to Rick . But that for knowledge, it will continue to watch The Walking Dead , which will complete the first half of the season 7 on December 11 in the US with a final midseason with the evocative title “Hearts Still Beating” ( “Hearts which still fighting “, literally). The promise of a new cast of blood?
