The Walking Dead question: Is it The Commonwealth or someone else?

When “Splinter” aired, fans expected the show to reveal who the armed soldiers were that captured Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and The Princess. Instead, the episode provided a glimpse into The Princess’s tragic past in a whirlwind of an episode with quite the plot twist.

Throughout the episode, fans did see to an extent how this group worked. But was all of that in The Princess’s mind or was it real?

In the end, The Princess was trying her best to trust these new people as they haven’t truly done anything to make her believe otherwise. At this point, the fanbase has come to the consensus that this is The Commonwealth from the comics.

If this is true, will they become new allies and possibly provide a new home for our heroes or will the show take the alternate route and make them enemies?

The Walking Dead question: Who is Pope?

Really, who is Pope? Maggie’s return to The Walking Dead may have made things actually worse for our heroes. After losing touch with Georgie and the twins she became the leader of a group of people that suddenly became smaller thanks to another group called The Reapers.

While Maggie hasn’t explained who they are, it is the mention of someone named Pope that is really creating confusion. Maggie and Daryl find themselves prey for a very skilled killer donned in military gear until they corner him with the help of Kelly, Elijah, and Cole.

They demand to know who he is and what group he was with assuming he was from The Reapers. However, his only response before killing himself is, “Pope marked you.”

Does this mean that Pope is the leader of The Reapers? Is Pope someone working entirely separately from The Reapers?

Is Pope a code for more than one person? Is Pope even real?

We have no idea and we have yet to see Maggie explain to her family who The Reapers actually are and why they are her enemies.
