Spoilers beneath for the prolonged season finale for Worry the Strolling Useless Season three, so be warned.
After years of claiming that the 2 exhibits’ differing timelines meant a crossover episode may by no means come for The Strolling Useless and its companion sequence Worry the Strolling Useless, followers had been not too long ago fairly shocked when it was confirmed that such a crossover is indeed on the way. And whereas it wasn’t initially made clear which character or characters would be involved, tonight’s Season three finale for Worry the Strolling Useless gave viewers an enormous clue that Michael Cudlitz’s Abraham Ford would be the first franchise character to seem in each exhibits.
What was the massive clue, you ask? Effectively, assuming all goes in accordance with the plans that had been first talked about by the new-ish villain Proctor John (performed by Deadwood and Sons of Anarchy vet Ray McKinnon), the motorbike membership chief and his squad have a post-dam-takeover plan to go into Texas to go into “what’s left of Houston.” It is not totally clear if that can nonetheless be the case for many who survived (mainly simply Madison, at this level), contemplating all the pieces that went down on the finish of the finale, however there is not any manner the episode would city-drop Houston — particularly since Proctor John received particular after solely first mentioning Texas.
Houston is vital, in fact, as a result of that was established because the pre-apocalypse hometown for Abraham, and he assumedly lived there for the majority of his life that wasn’t dedicated to no matter army excursions he went on. And followers know that Abraham went via some horrible instances earlier than he tagged together with Eugene (beneath the assumption that Eugene was involved with the federal government). Whereas Abraham and his household survived for a brief period of time after the shit hit the fan, his spouse was raped by one of many different survivors they had been holed up with, and Abraham rage-killed that rapist and others, which scared off his spouse and youngsters. He later discovered their walker-chomped our bodies, which is what led to his suicide try.
However as a result of this universe is what it’s, it is laborious to pinpoint precisely the place Worry the Strolling Useless‘s present timeline matches up with The Strolling Useless‘s so far as what can be occurring in Abraham’s life. Might we see him together with his household in mildly happier instances? Will Worry characters run into each Abraham and Eugene elsewhere in Texas through the duo’s trek? There’s additionally no telling how huge of a crossover second we’ll get, however we’re hoping for one thing huge.
It could be one factor if this episode second was the one factor that we had going for us so far as clues go, however Michael Cudlitz himself ignited the Abraham rumors with a mildly cryptic social media post that went up within the aftermath of the crossover announcement at New York Comedian-Con. So there’s all the time an opportunity that it will not be Abraham within the crossover, however our confidence and optimism are fairly excessive. Particularly since Cudlitz already made a post-death return within the Strolling Useless‘s Season 7 finale. After I’d spoken with the actor comparatively not too long ago, I would inquired a few future return for Season eight, and looking at his answer now, it is doable he knew in regards to the crossover installment on the time.
Now that Worry the Strolling Useless Season three is full on AMC, followers get to anticipate Season four, which would be the first set of episodes with the brand new showrunners changing Dave Erickson. However within the meantime, we have Season eight of The Strolling Useless to get pumped about. Take a look at what producer Gale Anne Hurd told us about it, after which head to our fall TV premiere schedule to see all the pieces coming to the small display screen within the close to future.
