Hardcore fans of “The Walking Dead” are some of the most eagle-eyed sumbitches on the planet, and we all benefit from their ability to pluck out fun little Easter eggs that most of us probably missed. We’ve got a highly interesting one for you today, which just might reveal some details about the show’s shady new character.
In this past Sunday night’s second episode of the fifth season, we met Father Gabriel, a dude who is clearly hiding something. Holed up in a church, Gabriel claims to be pure but is seemingly anything but, though we’re not quite sure exactly what’s going on with him just yet.
Serving as a potential clue is this Easter egg spotted by Imgur user myothertardisisafirebolt, which just goes to show the level of attention and detail that is put into every frame of AMC’s hit zombie series.
“We all know the writers of The Walking Dead love to see what they can slide past us,” says the eagle-eyed fan. “Well this past Sunday during the group’s search of the church in “Strangers”, I noticed this sign with all the bible verses on it and was curious if they meant anything. The verses are Romans 6:4, Ezekiel 37:7, Matthew 27:52, Revelation 9:6, and Luke 24:5. Turns out they make a story of sorts.”
