‘The Walking Dead’ Spoilers: Rick’s Death Brings Back Sasha, Shane, and Hershel

The Walking Dead spoilers reveal Rick Grimes‘s (Andrew Lincoln) death brings back Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson), and Sasha Williams (Sonequa Martin-Green) to the show. However, as TWD fans know, all three of these characters already died. But that’s okay, since they’ll be visions in Rick’s death throes. Here’s what the spoilers show we can expect on TWD.

The Walking Dead Spoilers: Rick Dies Episode 5

As previous TWD spoilers recently revealed, this season marks the death of Rick Grimes. His death was a long-running rumor in the past few months once it was declared that Andrew Lincoln was set to retire from the role. Lincoln has been the lead character from the beginning and will end his role on episode 5 of season 9.

Finally, AMC confirmed that Rick will meet his death soon and now we know he’ll go in S9 E5. He is injured after a confrontation with Saviors loyal to Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), say recent Walking Dead spoilers. There are ongoing issues between Rick’s group and the Saviors, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. This begins a confrontation, which ends with Rick shot and wounded.

The Saviors on The Walking Dead leave Rick Grimes to die alone. However, he doesn’t immediately die, and the shot does not kill him quickly. Instead, he attempts to return home. Along the way, however, he has visions (or perhaps flashbacks) that are full of characters we know and love. These characters include none other than Shane Walsh, Maggie’s father Hershel Greene, and Sasha Williams.

Shane Walsh, Hershel Green, and Sasha Williams on TWD Episode 5

Hallucinations come with Rick’s slow death including visions of people he’s lost over the years. These fever dreams feature Shane, Hershel, and Sasha Williams. Obviously, Rick Grimes has a history on AMC’s The Walking Dead with all of these characters. Fans will definitely feel delighted to see Rick and Shane Walsh in scenes together again.

Will Sasha Williams’ vision help Rick Grimes get back home? Will Hershel Greene give him some last-minute advice? Rick envisions all three of these characters as he slowly makes his way home, only to die and appear as a walker at the gates of Alexandria. A lot of fans are already excited to see these three hit their television screens again despite the dire circumstances.

However, a few Walking Dead fans point out that they would also like to see Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) appear. Carl’s death last season was controversial for fans, as many didn’t want to see the young man die. Rumor has it Andrew Lincoln hated that Carl was written out so it would be great to see the two together again, one last time.

The Walking Dead Spoilers: Scott Wilson’s Last Screen Appearance

This season doesn’t just mark the last time The Walking Dead viewers will see Rick Grimes on the screen. Season 9 also marks the last time fans will see fan favorite Hershel, who last appeared in season 4. Sadly, actor Scott Wilson passed away recently at the age of 76. This Season 9 episode may very well mark the last acting appearance made by Wilson.

That makes the episode especially heartwrenching. Hershel Greene is a huge fan favorite and Scott Wilson was beloved by The Walking Dead followers and always adored on shows like The Talking Dead. When Hershel’s character died, fans considered it one of the worst deaths in TWD history. With both Rick Grimes and Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) set to leave the show soon, this season marks a huge change for the AMC series,

With fans able to see Hershel Greene and Rick Grimes together again for one final time, it’s sure to be incredibly bittersweet.
