The Walking Dead Season 9: Synopses Reveal The Fate Of Andrew Lincoln’s Character Rick Grimes
We all know that the season 9 of the incredibly popular American television series The Walking Dead hit the tube with a sea of changes in its storyline, which are going to surprise the audience as the upcoming episodes are rolled out. One big change that we all are well aware of is that actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays the protagonist Rick Grimes in the series, will be exiting the show very soon. Though the makers have yet not divulged any details on how they are planning Lincoln’s exit from the show, the synopses for Episodes 9×05, 9×07, and 9×08 do offer some clues about it.
Titled What Comes After, 9×05 episode of The Walking Dead Season 9 has in its synopsis, “Rick is forced to face the past as he struggles to maintain the safety of the communities and protect the future he and Carl envisioned.” Episode 9×06 of the show is titled, Who Are You Now? The makers are yet to reveal the synopsis for this episode. Moving on to Episode 9×07, which is titled, Stradivarius and reveals some interesting details about the plot. The official synopsis for this episode reads, “Carol seeks out an old friend living alone in a wilderness teeming with walkers; survivors make the perilous trek to a new home.”
Episode 9×08, which is going to be the Mid-Season Eight finale, is titled, Evolution. If we take a close look at its official synopsis, it reads, “A small rescue mission braves a dangerous herd in their hunt for a missing comrade, only to discover a surprising threat that could doom them all.”
All the synopses of the aforementioned episodes make one thing quite clear that some characters are missing and rescue missions are being carried out to find them. It is highly possible that the group is trying to find the whereabouts of their leader Rick Grimes. If you clearly read the synopses, you will find that he is not mentioned in episodes beyond 9×05. A lot of surprises are in store, we feel.
