It has been an age since Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes was last seen in a Walking Dead episode. Leaving fans to speculate where he will actually show up next, his upcoming movies, or the show’s finale. Season 11 of the Walking Dead is now coming to a close, with part 2 of 3 officially airing its last episode. Although, the teaser trailer for part 3 has offered some insight on what to expect.
During the short teaser for the series finale, Daryl Dixon can be spotted holding Rick Grimes’ iconic revolver. The revolver was found after Rick blew up the bridge to save everybody from a walker attack. Then later being passed down to Judith, who now used the revolver as one of her main weapons, besides her sword of course.
Only true fans were able to identify the weapon in Daryl’s hands to be one of Mr. Grimes. Asking the question, does this mean Rick is actually returning to the show?
