The Walking Dead: 10 Crazy Theories For How It All Ends

10. Coma Dream


Let's start with the obvious one, Rick wakes up from a coma dream. It's a scenario that could be applied to virtually any TV series in the same ilk as The Walking Dead. I'm still adamant Lost should've ended with Jack waking up on the plane, before a patch of turbulence and a cut to the black screen, crippling the brains of the entire audience in the process. But perhaps there's more to the theory than it appears on the surface.

Some believe Hershel Greene could be Rick's doctor, Maggie his nurse, and the rest are various patients and hospital staff. Father Gabriel could be brought in to pray for Rick in his coma. And maybe Lori and Shane were having an affair, and whenever Rick talked to Lori, that could even have been real-life 'coma haze' conversations. It's a long shot (Kirkman himself has denied it, but it's not like people involved in TV never tell lies), and far from being the best way to end the show, but don't rule it out just yet.
