*SPOILERS* DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU DON”T WANT TO BE SPOILED

I think we can call this a definite whoopsie on the part of AMC’s advertising department. If you don’t want to read major spoilers for The Walking Dead (both the series and the comics) then I suggest that you turn back now. To give you ample opportunity to do so, I shall insert an large photo of Norman Reedus into this story. For practical purposes.

No he's not the one
