The season 6 premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" is still months away, but because filming of the season is already underway, spoilers regarding the first few episodes have emerged online.
Season 5 finale set the stage for the villains of the next season – the Wolves – who were seen going through Aaron's abandoned backpack filled with photos of Alexandria.
And fans will not have to wait long to see Wolves, as updates from shooting location have revealed that the Wolves will attack Alexandria Safe Zone shortly after the season premiere. Two recent posts by The Spoiling Dead Fans also revealed that the Wolves manage to break into ASZ.
"We have Andrew. Norman, Alexandra and some 'Wolves' members climbing the safe zone walls!" one TSDF post read. "After the new people climbed over the wall, Morgan's stunt double chased after them going up the rope. Soon after that Rick, Maggie, and Carol were seen and heard yelling and shooting."
Photos also show the trap trailer, which was used by the Wolves to hold walkers, making its way towards the Alexandria Safe Zone wall. It is being speculated that the Wolves will be using the walker army to take control over the area.
So who are the Wolves? The latest villains could be based on The Scavengers from Robert Kirkman's comics, and they are using humans as bait to create a "zombie army".
"We set up the Wolves in [season 5] Episode 16. I love those characters," series executive producer Greg Nicotero told Melty. "...The fact that you have people that are basically utilising [other] people that they kill as ammunition to build a zombie army? We see them in Episode 9 when they get to Noah's neighbourhood and we see the 'Wolves not far' in the background."
"...and when the W-man at the beginning says to Morgan, 'Well, we're going to take you, too, but you're not exactly going to be alive,' we realize through the course of the episode that they are setting booby traps everywhere so that they can take people's possessions and then use them as a means to build the walkers in the traps, so it's kind of a diabolical plan," he added.
"The Walking Dead" will return to AMC in October.
