The Walking Dead, which is a show on television that people watch, continued to pull at the already fractured heart strings of its enormous audience on Sunday by noticeably omitting Steven Yeun’s (Glenn) name from the opening credits sequence. However, the episode did offer an apparent sign of hope in the form of an anonymous voice screaming "Help!" into a walkie near the end of the Daryl-heavy installment. Daryl himself, a.k.a. motorcycle extraordinaire Norman Reedus, spoke with the Hollywood Reporter to clarify the mental state of one Daryl Dixon and to properly crush all your Glenn-related dreams.
When asked whose voice graced the walkie near the end of the episode, Reedus avoided the usual path of painfully vague responses by instead absolutely undermining the current leading theory surrounding the fate of America’s favorite former pizza boy:
Whose voice yelled "Help!" on the walkie at the end of the episode? Was that Glenn — or Nicholas?
It's not Glenn — but it's somebody at Alexandria.
Broaching the topic of Glenn’s perceived ability to successfully hide under dumpsters, Reedus was noticeably less specific, revealing that he was just as "pissed" at AMC as everyone else and was still "rooting" for Glenn's return:
You can make theories this way or that way but whatever you see is right. So whatever your take on that is, you saw what you saw and you're reacting to what you saw. I had the same feeling that everyone else had when they saw it and I was in the episode — I was pissed! I was mad at AMC and mad at everybody — but that's the point.
