The Walking Dead Issue #173 Speculation Post

This week we revealed the cover for November’s Walking Dead Issue #173, which features a bloody Jesus barely putting up a fight against a person covered in shadow. So far the fans know Jesus plans on moving to The Hilltop with Aaron, but this cover suggests things may not go so smoothly.

The title of the issue is FINAL FIGHT and the description reads, “Jesus is confronted on the road.” So what do YOU think it all means? Who’s confronting Jesus? Is he really going to get beaten or is this a red herring? Give us your prediction in the comments and we’ll send a Robert Kirkman-signed comic to the person with the best answer. Happy commenting!

    Its gotta be Beta. We haven’t seen him around for a while
    But we know he’s alive.
    Maybe by final fight they mean it’s Jesus’s last fight or
    Beta’s last stand.
    If Beta kills Jesus or Dante or both then Maggie’s totally
    Going to blame Negan…meaning more drama coming up?

    Since the very first time Beta was introducted by almost disembowelling Aaron, I wanted this infamous monster to be death-touched by Jesus. Then I wished it to be Negan, which didn’t exactly happen. So now it is Jesus. Good luck, ninja! Should you die, Negan will avenge you by getting another head to his Greek alphabet!

    Look, if it was the first time I had french fries w/ ketchup since the ZA started, I’d probably go HAM on them too.

    I bet beta will come and attack jesus and Aaron on there way to hilltop and then beta takes jesus or Aaron and kills one of them and start a new storyline for one of them grieving that they should have told each other how they felt before so the could have spent more time together. Either way so excited and can’t wait. #teamrobert

    Definitely gonna go with the pack this time and bet that this is probably Beta.

    This is most likely beta and either it’ll be beta’s last fight or Jesus’. I don’t wanna underestimate Robert and say he won’t kill Jesus 6 issues after Andrea’s death. But he did kill major characters in not so far apart issues *cough* Tyreese and Lori *cough*. But seriously though Eric died and Jesus might die so is everyone who dates Aaron doomed? Also, I haven’t recovered from Andrea’s death so if Jesus dies then I’ll have a mental breakdown. I really hope Jesus beats the crap out of Frowny McTwoKnives (if it is him) . And I’m wrong and it isn’t beta then I hope Jesus still lives.

    So the winner gets a signed comic from Kirkman….Funny how the past few comment contests still do not have a announced winner even after they said they would announce it….a winner is you…I am going with a swerve answer and say its dwight

    Seeing that long trench coat. It obviously must be the world’s last flasher. Jesus is fighting him because he wants to stay loyal to Aaron, and trying to avoid “strange” on the road. It’s Jesus “final fight” against his past transgressions and pre apocalypse life before settling down and starting a new life with Aaron.

    If Jesus dies, will it take him 3 days to come back as a walker?

    Gotta be that jolly green f***ing giant frowny mctwo knives. I wish negan would’ve finished him off back at the whisperer war

    I’m going with red herring.

    In light of the Trump-Russia allegations as of late, I’m going to go with this cover being a big fat, Red Herring.

    It’s Beta and the other whispers. Beta is still out there. He’s lucking in the shadows waiting to pounce. News his time while the group is divided in so mama ways.

    I’m predicting Jesus will be killed in a fight with Beta. Negan either tries to help in the conflict or arrives just in time to see Beta flee the scene. Dante arrives even later and thinks Negan is guilty. Dante goes back to tell Maggie.

    Finally!! Jesus and Beta go head to head in the dance off of the century! Look at Jesus Stanky Leg!! Can’t wait!

    So by now we know this is Beta vs. Jesus/Aaron. Since the title of the issue is Final Fight I bet Jesus and Aaron will manage to kill Beta, because If he survives he won’t stop – so it’s Beta’s final fight. And I really hope Jesus and Aaron get out of this alive, they deserve to be happy!
