When ‘The Walking Dead‘ returns this Valentine’s Day to reunite fans with their loved ones it appears that at least one lead actor is coming back as one of the undead. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got a lead character who is no longer among the living by the time the premiere ends so if you’re worried about spoilers, now is probably a good time to hit the back button.

Still with me? Okay, so here is the image AMC recently released from the upcoming episode. We’ve seen it before in the banner above but it lacked the detail and clarity we can see here. A few people had speculated whoit might be now we know. Let’s take a look:

That necklace, that ring, that shirt means there is only one person it could be – Deanna Monroe! It seems that Alexandria’s former leader didn’t fully end up as walker bait and enough of her is going to pull through to become one of the undead that terrorizes our survivors. Maybe if the horde of zombies that are already in the gates won’t convince everyone to start finally fully listening to Rick, this one will! I’m picturing them using her either a way to rally the town, eat a certain kid I’m sure you were all waiting to be bitten at the end of the finale, or to help push our group towards Negan.

Either way, I’m sure that Deanna’s last onscreen appearance will end up as a memorable one. If you look closely at the image it is clear that someone’s hand is on her shoulder. Will Michonne be the one who has to put down what is left of the woman who trusted that she could be a person again? This feels like it’ll be a struggle for her that will help to further evolve her character.

Are you glad to see that we’ll be seeing one last look at Deanna? Happy that a main character has been zombified which we haven’t seen in awhile? Share your thoughts below!

‘The Walking Dead’ is set to reinfect AMC when it returns on February 14th at 9 p.m. ET!
