'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Episode 5 Recap: Speculations Grow Over Rick and Daryl's Morse Code Message And Carl's Death

The Walking Dead season 7 will return with another fascinating episode on November 20 (Sunday) on AMC. The season has been extreme for Rick Grimes and his group courtesy Negan's agonizing torture. After brutally killing their close friends, Glenn and Abraham, Negan and his gang entered Alexandria in episode 4 to loot most of the group's medicines, furniture and all their weapons.

The unmerciful Savior leader, famed for snatching married women, even asked the group to handover Glenn's widow, but Father Gabriel saved the day by saying that she died as she could not bear the pain of losing her husband. However, the upcoming episode will reveal that she is very much alive and is being treated at Hilltop.

Daryl, on the other hand, remains a prisoner of the Saviors as Negan has kept him as bait to use against Rick. In the previous episode, the undemocratic leader brought the battered and bruised crossbow warrior to Alexandria to mentally tormenting Rick.

The latter tried to contact with his friend, but Daryl only blinked his eyes in response as he was riddled with guilt after causing Glenn's death. However, fans theorize that this could be the Morse code used by him for Alexandrians.

"I heard about this on set yesterday. I would like to live in a world where Daryl Dixon deciduously learns Morse code and knows that Rick has an intimate knowledge of Morse code, as well, and that they have practiced this with blinks. I would love that," showrunner Scott Gimple told Comic Book.

The filming for TWD season 7 is over and per Gimple the vibe for second the half will be "very different" from the first. He hinted that the end will be different from the start of the seventh season. "7B's vibe is very different from 7A's vibe. The ending of 7B is very different than the beginning of 7A," he noted.

On the other hand, real-life father of Chandler Riggs (Carl) shared a Facebook post thanking the TWD cast and crew as his son completed his seven-year contract with TWD, sparking rumors that Rigg's character might die in the current season.

"7-year contract completed! Grateful to AMC, Cast & Crew, TWD fan base and especially Chandler for always being 100% dedicated," he wrote. It remains to be seen, whether Carl dies or TWD would renew his contract.
