You’ve probably heard by now that Glenn is
apparently maybe possibly dead. Or not. You may have also stumbled upon the rampant fan theories attempting to explain what exactly happened on that fateful episode of The Walking Dead. Well, the producers have heard your cries and are debunking one specific theory.
"I've read a lot of the theories and they're hilarious — but Nicholas (Michael Traynor) running out of bullets is incorrect," executive producer Greg Nicotero told the Hollywood Reporter. "They were claiming that they could hear an audible 'click.' But there was a beat that I don't think ended up in the episode, [and was taken out] strictly for time where Glenn says to Nicholas, 'You need to preserve your ammunition and count your bullets.' As the walkers were coming forward and Nicholas was shooting, he was counting his bullets and he counted down to one."
So you’re wrong about that one. However, don’t be so quick to accept Glenn’s supposed demise. Nicotero, who says he’s "gotten a lot of, 'I love your work but f— you!'" responses from upset enthusiasts, hinted that they’re probably going to revisit that traumatic dumpster scene.
"It's probably not the last time we'll visit that dumpster scene," he added. “Just like any show—you watch Game of Thrones and the audience sees a character die and they go through all these different emotions and feelings and how they process and accept it. Our show is no different. That story is definitely not over."
Let the speculation rage on.
