A teaser for the second half of The Walking Dead season 10 shows a new face behind a mask among the Whisperers…and it’s a terrifying predicament.
The Whisperers are a deadly group. Their impact on The Walking Dead continues to change everything as they claim territory and punish anyone who steps foot on what they declare is theirs.
As if the ruthless Alpha and the powerhouse Beta weren’t enough, the Whisperers have a loyal group of human followers and a massive collection of the undead to unleash on anyone who does them any harm.
To make matters worse, it appears as though another impactful individual is in the camp of the Whisperers and it could be hugely terrifying. Check out the 19-second mark of the video shared on Twitter by the show’s AMC account for a quick flash of exactly what to expect:
It appears as though Negan’s audition to become part of the Whisperers was successful. While it’s strange to see the leather jacket with the mask made of a human face, it’s interesting to note that this seems to be what the former leader of the Saviors wanted all along.
If he is genuinely joining Alpha’s group, this is a massive get for the Whisperers. Negan is a strong survivor with knowledge of how things operate inside the walls of Alexandria. He may not fit the lifestyle of the group with his incessant talking, but if he falls into line with his new survivors there could be a lot of trouble on the horizon.
There is also a chance Negan is infiltrating the Whisperers to not only get information on Alpha and her group but to help it implode from within. This would be a big move for Negan, especially considering he doesn’t have a lot of reasons to align himself with the survivors who imprisoned him and broke up the Saviors.
The story of Negan and the Whisperers will be interesting to watch when season 10 of The Walking Dead returns to AMC. Hopefully, he does the right thing and helps to eliminate Alpha and her group in upcoming episodes.
