The Walking Dead Season 7 will have a lot of new characters, leaders, and communities. While everyone knows about the introduction of Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and his pet tiger, Shiva, there are a number of mystery characters as well. One is Jennie and TWD fans might be wondering who she is and what kind of role she will have on the AMC series. Recently, spoilers revealed that she films scenes with Tara, but where is Heath?
The Walking Dead Season 7 spoilers are ahead. If you don’t want to risk knowing information on what could happen next, then stop reading.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, at least one beach scene is being filmed for Season 7. It is located at Jekyll Island and this led fans to wonder if Oceanside would be introduced. As comic book readers know, Oceanside is a community near the beach. After the war with Negan and the Saviors is over, they trade items with Alexandria, the Hilltop Colony, and other nearby communities. The items they trade are mostly shellfish and other oceanic edibles.
The Spoiling Dead Fans on Facebook reported that beach scenes were being filmed for Season 7. Some fans speculated that one mystery character, Jennie (Sydney Park), could be someone from The Walking Dead comic books. Jennie and another female were seen filming together and TSDF gave the following description for the scene.
“Two actors discover a human corpse half buried within a small tidal pool. Further down the beach, another person is found washed ashore alive and is carried to a drier section of the beach. After being revived, the survivor slips away from the rescuers while they are distracted and is seen moving inland past the wrack line.”
It is being speculated by both The Spoiling Dead Fans and Cinema Blend that Jennie rescues the woman that washed up on the beach. After saving her life, the woman sneaks away and continues on her way. While that does seem rude, the new world is much different. She has no clue if Jennie and her group are friendly or not. Just because someone saves your life doesn’t mean they have good intentions.
The woman who washed up on the shore is reportedly Tara (Alanna Masterson). This should make fans wonder about Heath’s (Corey Hawkins) safety. In The Walking Dead Season 7 trailer, Tara and Heath are together. They watch in horror as walkers rise out of the mud. However, they might not be walkers at all, but a group called the Whisperers. They are known to disguise themselves as zombies and walk with the undead.
If Tara washes up on the beach and Heath is not with her, what happened to him? How did Tara end up in the ocean to begin with? Did the Whisperers kill Heath? Why does Tara sneak away instead of thanking Jennie for saving her life?
Other spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7 include the show casting for a leader named Brion. The notice is looking for a male or female to play the part. This led some fans to speculate that Alpha might be seen next. As TWD comic book readers know, Alpha is the leader of the Whisperers, but she isn’t supposed to arrive until much later in the series. However, the show is known to switch things around. They might introduce Alpha sooner than fans think.
What do you think is going on with Tara? What happened to Heath and does it have to do with the Whisperers? Why does Tara sneak away instead of thanking her savior? What will Jennie’s role be on TWD? Find out on October 23, when The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres on AMC.
