    - Enid/Katelyn Nacon -

    She doesn't have her own Characters/Cast category yet because she's been a fairly minor character. Until she becomes a full part of The Family as i suspect she will, we can just have this thread for her.

    This thread is meant for any and all Enid discussion.

    There has been much debate as to whether or not there is "more than meets the eye" with this girl, and a lot of various speculation in general.

    If anyone would like to make a comprehensive list of the story points that bring these questions to mind, that would be amazing. I believe she is well worth discussing regardless, as she will most likely take a larger role going forward.

    Angsty teenager that I hope becomes something more but not as a double agent or secret spy. I would like to see her integrated into TF.

    Me too! It has seemed from the start that she would be an appropriate addition. She's a survivor.

    She can already handle walkers to a degree and managed to make it on the outside alone. She's Fam material in my book. I'm hoping she goes to stay with Maggie. A Carl trip to visit her would give him the opportunity to slip away elsewhere as well..

    Oh, she's definitely TF material. And yes, I would like to see her settled with Maggie (and Glenn!)

    I just really enjoy seeing children in this show. I loved the Lizzie and Mika storyline. I even enjoyed Sam and Ron. I think it's great if Carl has a peer. I'm not too invested in a potential romance storyline. Let them be friends first. Maybe something down the line if need be.

    Angsty teen. And I don't blame her at all, after everything she's been through (watching her parents die, having to survive alone out there) she has the right to be angsty. I like Enid, I hope they more with her, but ita that she's TF material and I really enjoyed her bonding with Glenn and Maggie. Her friendship with Carl is also cute and I'm glad these two found someone their age that they can relate and talk to.

    It would be such a more interesting story (and character) if she was a double agent and tried to take or turn Carl. I already watch the CW for angsty teens :daleeye:

    Traumatized teen is more like it, lol. Don't think she's a double agent, it doesn't add up. At least not at the moment. Not to say something like that won't happen in the future. I think her character seems so mysterious because the writers are doing what they do...which is being craptastic half the time.

    I am hoping that the Enid is just more than an angsty teen because right now I am still very 'meh' about her character but I don't really have any faith left in the writing for this show to make Enid anything more than that, so yeah...Enid is the resident angsty teen/ comic Sophia replacement...that's it.

    The Walking Dead: Katelyn Nacon Reveals Glenn's Impact On Enid
    • Brandon Davis
    • - 02/06/2017
    Enid has been one of The Walking Dead's more unpredictable characters since being introduced in the show's fifth season. She is such a lone wolf that fans began suspecting she might be a member of the Wolves. Some suspect she is an undercover Savior. Neither of those cases are likely to turn out as accurate accusations but the character certainly enjoys her fair share of alone time.

    In Season 6, she packed up and was ready to leave Alexandria for good, returning to the life she had known for so long when she was living on the road and eating turtles to survive until she crossed paths with a certain good-hearted survivor.

    Speaking to fans at a poolside panel aboard the Walker Stalker Cruise, Enid actress Katelyn Nacon gave full credit to Glenn Rhee for her character's return to Alexandria and move to the Hilltop.

    "She had nothing there for her," Nacon said of Alexandria, prompting Carl actor Chandler Riggs who was sitting beside her for the panel feel a touch unappreciated.

    "She cared about Carl and she knew if she got closer to him it would just hurt and if she was was dating Carl, there's an aspect of that," Nacon said. "She's loved and she knew that she'd be better off there."

    "She grew up without her parents," Nacon said. "That's how she learned how to survive, is on her own. That's why she leaves Alexandria."

    However, when Enid found Glenn under the dumpster and was later tracked down and all but forced to come home, the character learned a valuable lesson according to Nacon, giving him full credit for Enid's return home.

    "Glenn showed her this whole other side to it and if he never did that, she'd be on her own," Nacon said.

    This all, of course, is likely what lead Enid to follow Maggie to the Hilltop and finally begin to accept her as a motherly figure as we saw in Episode 7x05 (Go Getters) when the two enjoyed dinner and time together at the neighboring community.

    This is a fine article, but I feel like all of this is pretty obvious and I don't understand why people still thought Enid was a spy. Enid was just like Rick and Carol and she basically said the Alexandrian's stupidity and weakness was the reason she kept sneaking out.
