Since the mid-season finale of ‘The Walking Dead’ fans have been tossing around theories about who the owner is of the mysterious pair of boots seen in two different scenes in the episode.
We can now answer that, sort of. What we can tell you is that it is NOT Dwight, or a Whisperer, or even a past character come back to scope out Alexandria. It is a completely new, never before mentioned character. The new character is not in the comics either. That’s right, fresh blood. The thing is, we have no idea what we can expect from them.
We do know a little, thanks to the Spoiling Dead. The owner of the dirty boots is a teenager, who is part of a brand new group. The group is made of all teens, and get this, they live in dumpsters. Get ready to meet “The Garbage Pail Kids”. No, that’s not their real name, but it sounds catchy doesn’t it? Odds are, the boots’ owner is not only new, a teen, and a dumpster diver, it’s a female. Reportedly, her name is Tamiel.
A new group of youngsters would explain a lot about Enid’s behavior and why she is always slipping away. We know that she’s not a spy for the Saviors and she stays too clean to be a Whisperer. She could very well could be one of the “Garbage Pail Kids”.
I can’t wait to see what the group brings to the show. Not to mention, Alexandria is going to need all the help they can get. ‘The Walking Dead’ returns this February. Get ready to see Rick and the settlements “rise up’ against Negan and the Saviors. Heads will roll.
