    The biggest reason I don't see it being Abe? A certain chronically wrong poster on StD thinks it will be Abraham. Seriously, this person is never right about anything, so therein lies my hope for Abe.

    Although I find Abecille probably, it would make me seethe that TPTB missed an opportunity to get rid of greaseball

    :lol::lol::lol:

    I want Cheeto Puff to live so much because Cudlitz really put some new and incredible energy into Abraham last season, but like many I'll still take it over Glenn in the long run.

    Another point that makes me think Abraham is a red herring is the Zapruder comment on The Talking Dead. I just refuse to believe they would tip their hand like that.

    The big head scratcher for me is the van POV. I just don't understand why they would have thrown in those van POV shots if someone in the van isn't the LV. My gut is still with Abe right now, but I simply can't work out what other reason they would have a van POV if someone in there isn't the LV.
    What was the Zapruder comment from TD? I know it was mentioned before but I can't remember it.

    I just read the first page again. Okay, that is really obvious. Maybe that was a mistake and he didn't think anyone would get the reference?

    Exactly. Anyone who was alive during the assassination would most likely remember Abraham Zapruder -- and Kirkman even lampshading it? I don't know. It did strike me as super obvious. But maybe they did think they were being clever.

    Plus, like you said, the infamous POV shots. Abraham being the victim makes those so hard to explain.

    Cudlitz's lighter hair color has colored me worried for Abe.

    We thought his new dye job looked like a more deeper red than usual. Maybe it was the picture lighting, is the latest picture of MC's hair color the shade of a :cheeto:? Then all is right with the world....maybe :daleeye:

    I am reluctantly on this ship :tdog:
    Just don't want any more pain for Sasha :gabe:

    What made me board this ship is the way 701 seems to be going. Doesn't sound like the kind of epi for an Atl5 member or an OG...so Aaron or Abe are seeming more and more likely. It would also continue the pattern of comic characters not getting their comic deaths. Part of me is still thinking Gimple has tricks up his sleeve to prevent this from leaking and we are all being played right now and it will still be Glenn D:

    I'm feeling uneasy about this.

    Abe has definitely replaced Glenn at the top of my list, solely because I don't believe a Glenn death (or a Daryl death, or a Michonne death) would require so much Rick Torment afterward. But it seems too easy, and too obvious.

    That's me. Abe is currently looking like the surefire victim, but, I mean, really? After the Zapruder comment and all the heavy-handed stuff in the finale? It just seems, like you said, too easy.

    I thought we'd know the LV by now, even though a lot of people had warned it might be a while. I think they've done a decent job keeping it a secret so far.

    For example, Michael Cudlitz is in Detroit, but Sonequa and Josh canceled their appearances. That seems like a clue to me. But Lauren had time off from filming yesterday, so it's not as if everyone else was filming without MC. And NR and SY were riding around on motorcycles, no word whether they were filming. So we can't even make a definite decision about MC yet. I agree we may be in for a surprise.

    @balladsinthebluegrass I noticed your location. Are you a Johnny Cash fan? Or maybe Nine Inch Nails. (I know the line from Johnny Cash's "Hurt")

    Given his success I think he's bright but socially awkward (that's what I get from his interviews anyway) so yeah I do think he's smart enough (with the help of his team to at least put things in place to block spoilers getting out. I don't really think he can control all the variables though (set crew with loose lips, extras that spill the beans, spoiler stalkers, etc ) so it will still probably leak...I was being a bit facetious about being played, lol

    I saw Abe/Michael this weekend at con and his hair looked very grey with a hat. Either he just hasn't had to film or Abe is now dead. Those are my thoughts lol

    Thanks for this update! I wondered if anyone had spotted him recently. I haven't been thinking about the LV much lately, so Abe is still my first choice. Though his hair can easily be dyed when the cast returns June 6th or 12th, I think this can be a clue.
