Game-changing, unexpected twists? The Walking Dead has them.


With The Walking Dead recently announcing that the show was going to be entering its final chapter, it seems to be a great time to look back at some of the greatest twists in the shows ten year history. After all, the show has thrown countless plot twists at the audience since the very first season to keep the viewers on their toes.

Some of these plot twists owe their origin to the comic book series, but others are completely unique to the show, making them that much more shocking. There is always a sense with The Walking Dead that you never quite know what could happen next, especially in the later seasons when the writers took huge risks, some of which actually backfired greatly.

Whether they worked or not isn't the focus of this list, though. But instead just how shocking the twists were for viewers. Some of these unexpected moments are still mentioned in discussion regarding plot twists to this day, a clear sign that the writers achieved their goal of surprising the audience and stimulating conversation about the show.
