For some of the more astute viewers out there, you may have noticed at one point during the 5th season premiere of The Walking Dead the camera pan to a zombie wearing a handcuff on one arm. While it was most definitely made a feature, many people didn’t really seem to understand the significance.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether this was actually “zombie Andrea” (which wouldn’t really make that much sense since, unless she was THAT bad of a shot, she shot herself in the head at the end of season three), it’s safe to assume that this was a little “Easter Egg” or a tribute to the character.
Check out the side-by-side comparison from Season 3 finale and last night’s episode:
While very disappointing for fans of the comic book, Andrea’s character on the television show was killed off once the creators realized they buried the character in such a heaping amount of insurmountable garbage. For those of us who continue to mourn her death, we can still enjoy her badass character in the comic books, who is now actually dating Rick Grimes – suck on that, Glen Mazzara.
Does anyone else in this cruel, cold world miss Andrea as much as we do? This “Easter Egg” kind of opens up some fresh wounds for us. Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.
