I'll admit, things looked pretty bad for Glenn Rhee at the end of Episode 3 of The Walking Dead this Sunday, after a whole crush of walkers piled on an alleyway, causing Nicholas to freak out so much he killed himself, and take Glenn down with him when he fell.
But, right from the start there was a lot unanswered about Glenn's demise which just didn't add up, causing wild speculation across the internet that he might still have a chance at survival. If you're not convinced Glenn was still alive at the end of Episode 3, then you can check out my article over here, but if you're already sure of his alive-status, then you might like to check out these six possible ways that Glenn could totally escape the horde next time we see him:
1. A savior comes to his aid
As Nicholas and Glenn ran into the alleyway, there were a couple of spots that could provide either a great escape route, or a great spot for a rescuer to enter the scene. Firstly there was the set of stairs leading into the building next to the alleyway, and also the green door right next to the dumpster that Glenn tried to open, but couldn't. It's entirely possible that someone could either be inside the building, or passing by and save Glenn. So who might the savior be?
My first thought was Enid (Katelyn Nacon), who we saw leave Alexandria in Episode 2. When Katelyn Nacon was interviewed on The Talking Dead two weeks ago, she confirmed that Enid will be back on the show saying, "if you do see her, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised."
My second suspect is a character who is yet to be introduced on the show, but is well known to comic readers: Jesus. Paul 'Jesus' Monroe comes from a walled community named Hilltop. His character is introduced in issue 91 of the comics, and is a total badass. Normally I wouldn't be quick to suggest a comic character might come to the rescue, but the fact is that a very Jesus-y looking fellow has been spotted on set recently, including in scenes with Glenn (read more about Jesus over here), so this makes this theory entirely possible (plus what's better than a person nicknamed Jesus saving your skin?!).
2. He waits until the horde is distracted
By now I think we've all noticed that the dumpster behind Glenn has a pretty big gap underneath it, so big in fact that Glenn could probably squeeze himself underneath it to hide from the horde who are busy devouring Nicholas. If Glenn was quick enough and quiet enough, perhaps her could fold himself underneath the dumpster, and wait until the horde is done eating and is distracted, before making his escape. It would be a great opportunity for him to use his walkie talkie to try and get someone to get back to him quickly and distract the horde for him.
