3 Possible Explanations for That Helicopter on The Walking Dead Warning: Spoilers for The Strolling Lifeless forward. Close to the top of Sunday’s “The Massive Scary U” episode of The Strolling Lifeless — after Rick and Daryl have their slugfest and head off in reverse instructions — Rick sees a helicopter flying overhead. Provided that every thing means one thing on The Strolling Lifeless and that a helicopter sighting is a large improvement on a present the place the primary characters do not know how a lot of the world has been worn out by walkers, it is a protected guess that we’ll see it once more. Name it Chekov’s Helicopter. However what does it imply? Who’s in it? And the place is it going? We now have three theories: 1.

The present has by no means ventured into D.C., so it is totally attainable which might be individuals there — perhaps even a functioning federal authorities — who’ve entry to a helicopter. three. Jadis There’s an alien ship clearly seen in Rick’s background throughout a scene at Jadis’s junkyard final season in The Strolling Lifeless, and Rick goes again to the junkyard subsequent week to attempt to get Jadis to hitch his effort towards Negan and the Saviors. Many followers wrote off the UFO as an uh-oh precise flying object that the editors did not catch, however that is a bit of murkier now.
