Some people from The Sanctuary have gone missing during season 9 of The Walking Dead and the unknown reason for their disappearance should be concerning.

There are several different storylines happening in the world of The Walking Dead and one of the most interesting is what is going on with people from The Sanctuary who have walked off from the construction of the bridge.

Something is happening to the Saviors on the road and these individuals are going missing at an alarming rate. A delivery of ethanol is missing as well as humans, meaning whatever is happening isn’t only occurring between the worksite or bridge and The Sanctuary.

At the end of season 9 episode 2, a person from The Sanctuary named Justin was removed off bridge construction as well as walker-redirection duty, causing him to leave the worksite. But it was his walk down the road that was interesting.

Justin was startled by someone in the woods, and it appears as though he was abducted or assaulted…maybe both. Considering the direction fans know the series is heading, the first impression is that it could be the work of The Whisperers, but that doesn’t make sense.

The person coming out of the woods seemed to be recognized by Justin. Or, if not recognized, at least a friendly face. If it were a member of The Whisperers, the individual likely would have terrified Justin beyond compare, or at least made him think the person was a walker.

One theory is that there is an uprising of people growing in the woods of those who are no longer wanting to live under the rule of “The Great” Rick Grimes and are looking to live without the conditions at The Sanctuary.

Of course, there could always be some other option as well: another new group, Georgie’s people, or just an act of an individual character doing their own thing (maybe Sherry?). However, all evidence points back to it being a familiar face from The Saviors, and not The Whisperers.

Next. Was The Walking Dead 902 any good?. dark
