Who Is Rick Talking To? Does A New Promo For THE WALKING DEAD Hold Any Clues?

Who Is Rick Talking To? Does A New Promo For THE WALKING DEAD Hold Any Clues?

A new promo for episode six of The Walking Dead has arrived and it features a few new snippets of footage of Rick and that mysterious phone call that he received at the end of last week's episode.

After viewing this new promo for "Hounded" do you believe that the television show will divert from, or follow the original "Phone Call" storyline in The Walking Dead comic books? I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but if you're dying to know who Rick talks to in the comics the answer can be found here. (Skip to "Here We Remain")

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC and stars: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Scott Wilson, Emily Kinney, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, IronE Singleton, Danai Gurira, Melissa Suzanne McBride, Michael Rooker, and David Morrissey.

Does anybody have a link to view the video on another site? The player on here rarely works on my computer.

Telemarketers! They never quit.

at the end of the episode he is covered in blood.. but now his hand is clean?
RoBdOg - 11/14/2012, 8:01 PM
I believe that Rick is just talking to himself on the phone; in his head he thinks he's talking to someone who, in episodes to come, will 'befriend' him and rationalise Rick's own thoughts and judgments to him (as we all know, Rick is quickly becoming more and more unstable, so the man on the phone (Rick's head)could pose a real threat to the safety of the group- like in the scene with Glenn).

If I recall a few episodes ago, I think the group established that the power had been shut off in the prison so logic screams that phones would be out...

Really hope it is done as effectively as it was it the comics. I think they've said we will find out in one episode, but I was hoping it would be stretched out a little more. The longer it goes on, a few episodes or so, the bigger the "oh shit" for non-comic readers when it is revealed.

Also in the comics you could read the other person without knowing who was talking. For obvious reasons they cannot do that, so either there will be no voice on the other end that we can hear, or they have someone else do the voice.

fattieacid - 11/14/2012, 9:02 PM

lostsoul86 - 11/14/2012, 9:06 PM
@RoBdOg its a land line phone it dosent need power to work as long as its plugged in buddy and theres an open connection
LucasMend - 11/14/2012, 9:15 PM
If it's not Lori on the show I'll kill some bitches.
retr0g0dfather - 11/14/2012, 9:49 PM
Rick is losing his mind and the phone call will have Lori on the other side to show us viewers that he is having a mental breakdown.
Azrael725 - 11/14/2012, 11:00 PM
what is that last thing rick says? "We buried you"?
shiftysharp - 11/15/2012, 1:13 AM
says " we're dying here!"
ps old dial phones didnt need plugged into the mains for power as long as they were connected to a phone socket!
oh and there is no one on the other end! he is having a psychotic break, rick has left the building :)
CrowPirate1 - 11/15/2012, 4:21 AM
It's that guy calling saying.. "Can you hear me now?"
marvel72 - 11/15/2012, 4:45 AM
lori would be a shit idea.i think it'll be better if no one is on the other end & he is going crazy.
Supernature - 11/15/2012, 4:50 AM
It's probably no one.

Mofo is going cray cray.
SuperFrost - 11/15/2012, 6:13 AM
" May I speak to mr. Ben Dover?"
thetrojan - 11/15/2012, 6:23 AM
he says,"how do you know my name?"

So it cant be anyone he knows already so it is either a real voice or he is having a breakdown....I want it to be a breakdown because this actor is at this point acting his little boots off.........
i did not rate him when he worked in britain,but he has really established himself with this role.
19Batman84 - 11/15/2012, 6:29 AM
if you read the books you know he's talking to laurie. common fan boys!
LucasMend - 11/15/2012, 6:39 AM
YOUNGBL00D - 11/15/2012, 6:51 AM
@marvel72 technically it is no one, he is crazy and thinks he is talking to Lori
LucasMend - 11/15/2012, 7:18 AM
lori not really a shit idea, in the comics it is great, and helps the character grow after her death. In the show will have an even bigger effect because of how long Shane lasted and changed things.

screechop - 11/15/2012, 8:54 AM
@Trooper88 if you read the books you'd know how to spell Lori...
theHuch - 11/15/2012, 9:31 AM
I bet the political ads have finally found him- now he will be getting multiple calls a day!
SimpleObserverOfThings - 11/15/2012, 9:50 AM
@SuperSpiderman - I wish the samething but unfortunately it's not going to be Morgan and his son Duane. They will eventually return, if the tv series goes the same direction as the comics, but (spoiler alert)

Duane will be found to be a zombie chained up by his father, because like his wife, he isn't able to kill his family who've turned into a zombie...
iuhgluiblbjjkhkjhkljh - 11/15/2012, 9:59 AM
It'll be Lorie, evil never dies. Wish it was Morgan.
HellScorpion - 11/15/2012, 11:33 AM
Lori, Shane, T-Dog, Jenner, or in a surprise twist no one saw coming: Robert Kirkman...or the Governor...or Merle...
Parker2017 - 11/15/2012, 11:34 AM
i tihnk it was ....Spoiler Alert

KEVIN BACON! :) To me it makes eprfect sence, everything goes back to Kevin Bacon, and it could be Morgan or Daune.
Parker2017 - 11/15/2012, 11:47 AM
I Still say its Kevin Bacon or Lee Everett is going to make hsi frist apperece :) oh can;t wait to see clemtine :3
RIKSHAWRenegade - 11/15/2012, 1:15 PM
Real spoiler alert...(wait for it)....It's all in his head. He's lost it and he's talking to Lori via telephone that doesn't work. It was in the comics. Just didn't happen in the prison. Moving on....
HRDWYR - 11/15/2012, 1:17 PM
"...sevennn dayyyyssss...."
RIKSHAWRenegade - 11/15/2012, 1:17 PM
I bet carol turns up. Either she survived or as a zombie.
birdfists - 11/15/2012, 2:53 PM
Technically it's nobody, but he's going crazy and to cope with her death he has 'imaginary converations' with her even though he knows it's not her.

''Is this Real?''
''Rick, Of course not''
SuperPickle - 11/15/2012, 9:32 PM
Considering this is all quite well covered in the comics and I seriously doubt they'd stray THAT far from it, there's no reason to debate it.

Yes, they've diverged by shifting around events, mostly chronologically, to keep us who know the comics from knowing every twist and turn, but this is a no-brainer.
BoredSorcercer - 11/15/2012, 11:22 PM
it's an imaginary Lori sort of
