Did The Walking Dead just kill [Spoiler Alert]??
It sure looks like it! We imagine fans are going to be up in arms after Sunday night's episode — but is AMC just trying to pull a Jon Snow on us??

Watch the video (above) to see the horrifying death — and to find out why there may be hope.
Let's look at exactly what happened:
[SPOILERS AHEAD — OBVIOUSLY — WE MEAN, COME ON!]
Glenn and Nicholas were on the run from some walkers and climbed onto a dumpster. Seeing they are completely surrounded, Nicholas lost hope and shot himself.
It happens. Not everyone can take the zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately he's pretty selfish in how he falls, as he knocks Glenn off the dumpster with him…
…right into the crowd of walkers, who appear to rip Glenn to shreds.

Why would anyone possibly think he was still alive??
Here are the facts:
1. No Steven Yeun on Talking Dead. The actors who play beloved characters who die always appear on AMC's after show to say farewell.
2. Talking Dead didn't even feature Glenn in their In Memoriam segment. Hmm…
3. Showrunner Scott Gimple issued the following statement:
"In some way we will see Glenn, some version of Glenn, or parts of Glenn again, either in flashback or in the current story, to help complete the story."
Now, all of that is well and good, but HOW COULD GLENN HAVE SURVIVED??
We mean, we saw his entrails becoming out-trails! Didn't we?
If you watch the clip again, right at the very end, note the angle.
You'll notice they never show below a certain point on Glenn. And they never cut to the body of Nicholas also being devoured.
So the theory goes that Nicholas fell ON TOP OF Glenn. The body we see being ripped apart is actually his, lying on top of the smaller man.
Maybe the walkers won't notice little Glenn below, and he'll be able to scramble under the dumpster? Maybe something will distract them?
Maybe someone will come and rescue him at the last minute as he hides under a fresh corpse??
The point is, we never actually SEE Glenn die. And on TV that means everything!
What do YOU think, TWD fans?? Is he dead for good??
