(Forbes) The Walking Dead is…going some places here in its final season. While one half of the show is adapting the end of Robert Kirkman’s books with the Commonwealth arc, the other half has invented a new plotline entirely from scratch, a new enemy group called The Reapers who are stalking Maggie’s old crew and now Rick’s group, since Maggie has reunited with them. They are terrifying, mask-wearing killers, and for the first time this week, we finally learned who they are, really.
The big reveal of the episode was that Daryl’s old flame Leah is actually one of them. We learn that she wasn’t adopted into that group, she was always apart of them, and somehow got separated. She left because they found her again.
