The Walking Dead TV series and comics came crashing together again this week as Aaron, played by  Ross Marquand, popped up just before the credits…

Fans of the comics will remember that Aaron – SPOILERS – is a recruiter for the Alexandria Safe-Zone. This was a location just outside Washington, where, you will remember, Rick and the TV characters are heading in the hope that there’s salvation there. – SPOILERS END

Aaron appears at the end and asks to speak to Rick; Marquand himself explains that Aaron has been following them for a while: “He’s been following this group, whipping out his spy gear to some degree. He’s been tracking the group for a while and getting a vibe from them and getting the dynamics of leadership from them and how they work together—and that’s extremely important to him.”

With speculation rife that Negan is coming this season (here), the inclusion of Alexandria Safe-Zone would certainly back that up…

In other Walking Dead news, did Deadite Ash from Evil Dead 2 appear in this week’s episode? The scene took place around the 12 minute mark and we reckon someone on the show is a fan of everyone’s favourite zombie/demon killer.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
