I’m back, baby!
Ooo! A poll! I was just thinking that it’s been a while!
I couldn’t decide between the Wolves & Ron, so I went with Lori’s Ghost.
That was good!
i want to say ron or the wolves (like everyone else) but both of those seem too predictable. from that trailer, im thinking the wolves are invading the town during this whole herd debacle and in desperation someone signaled for help. from what i understand its possible that everyone in town is still unaware of the situation, seeing as the choice to engage the herd was a split second decision when things went wrong and the truck fell. therefore everyone back home thinks they are out on a drill, so someone is able to put out a distress call to get our muscle back to town. i’m thinking gabe, deanna or enid. my official vote went to the latter.
Good thinking! You figure if Aaron & Eric has a distress signal plan that maybe Alexandria has one, too. Deanna is smart enough to have thought of that. It’d be a kick in the ass, tho, since it’s redirecting the herd!
yes sir. hey, noob question, im tired of looking at that blue thing. where can i change that. i have a different avi on my skybound profile and it doesnt show up here?

Ha… that is near identical to my scenario description of what went down that I posted on another post on the season opener. Minus any specific naming of the person that blew the horn to warn of invaders.
I think that it might be a distress call like grimeyrick said. If only they had a distress call which was visual and not audible!!!
At first I’ve thought it was the wolves honking the horn. Then I thought the wolves might not know about the over million walker herd that Rick is directing away from Alexandra. If they did? They will believe that by honking the horn will costed Rick in trying to redirect the herd back he want them on..
Then there’s Enid. She always like to go outside the safezone to her favorite spot; and was caught outside when wolves attacked and manage to get into one of the abandon vehicles that is park outside the safezone, but have to fight over dozens of walkers to get to the vehicle. When she get in, the vehicle get surrounded by walkers, she panic and start honking the horn. Which costed the walkers that the wolves brought with them, to turn and head toward her. Which also cost the herd Rick is directing to turn. But Also allow those that are defending the safezone a better chance in fighting off the wolves, without worrying about the walkers.
Ha… that vehicle did not have a horn like that. It was not a car horn for sure.
I don’t think the Alexandrians are honking the horn as a distress call. They are coddled and nieve, but I don’t think they are total fucking morons. One of the first things you learn in the zombie apocalypse is that noise draws them to you. If a distress call was devised it would definitely be visual.
Now, who is it honking the horn? We’ve got two real categories of possibility:
1-Hormonal angry teen – This could be Ron or Enid because they both have a clear abundance of issues. I’m leaning less towards this choice, because I don’t think either of them is suicidal, and calling a horde to you is definitely that.
2-Pure evil – Wolves or a yet to be introduced evil. My solid bet is the Wolves though. We have seen that they are master Walker wranglers. They know how to move them and use them to their advantage, plus they are straight up cray, so I don’t think they’d fear an advancing horde. They could have been listening in on the walkies, or maybe they got their hands on some of Aaron’s spy gear from his lost pack. Or maybe that little wolf cub Enid gave them a heads up.
Basically, Wolves Not Far.
I think you are dismissing the theory too easily. I’m not saying that the signal was established by Alexandria, like “if this goes down, ring this horn.” they are definitely not that prepared. There wasn’t even anyone on lookout in the tower until the Grimes crew showed up. I think it could easily be enid, seeing as she is used to sneaking out, she sneaks out during the commotion and in desperation finds a way to call the group. it could also be ron or gabe seeing as they are naive enough to do that. yeah it might seem just plain stupid to us, like watching the characters on fear try to talk down full-blown zombies, but it isn’t that black and white.
1) the residents don’t understand what it is to attract a herd of that magnitude. as far as we know they have never seen it.
2) they have never really done anything to attract a herd like that. guns were banned in the walls for their safety (according to deanna), not because of attracting walkers.
3) as far as anyone back home knows, those walkers are and have been locked up tight, and the plan doesn’t go down until tomorrow.
And if it is a signal outside of the ASZ that wasn’t designated for that, I can see someone activating it like “fuck it, we need to let our people know. Oh damn that’s pretty loud.” Plus, trailer 2 clearly shows that it is happening while the herd motion is happening. Nobody involved in the plan is present in Alexandria. And on top of that, the threat is very likely the wolves. It does not look like they are taking on walkers in that trailer. If the wolves were already inside of Alexandria, why would they signal walkers to come? I know you have an impression that they are master wranglers, but we haven’t seen anything to signify that. Just because walkers were locked up in a cage and placed in a quarry doesn’t mean anything. Throw bodies in there and you’re good. Then direct them with sounds and lights that were pre set up. They aren’t like the whisperers that can navigate herds from the inside. It also doesn’t make sense, seeing as they are scavengers that are after everything they can get, including bodies for their walker collection. Just like Agenta (user comment below this thread) is saying. Bringing the herd down on ASZ would only destroy the place and everything and everyone in it. That includes the resources they want, the addition to the walkers they want, and themselves because they are already there. From what we have seen, the wolves m.o. is get stuff, not nonsensically destroy.
Respect. But disagree.
* Yes, the Alexandrians have been tucked away snug as a bug behind that wall for most of the walker fun…MOST. I got the impression from the episode where Deanna is interviewing the Survivors that the people who are living behind the walls got there because the military directed them there as a safe place. Also, Reg designed and built those walls so there was a time when they were more vulnerable. I don’t think it’s anything like Fear–they know what a walker is. While most haven’t had to go hand to hand with any, I think they know enough to see an air horn is noone’s friend at the end of the world.
* I think Rick’s “come to Jesus” meeting with the town was enough to make them aware of how deadly serious the herd is and from what we saw, he told them all the full plan.
* I definitely do think the Wolves are cunning and quick enough to use walkers to their advantage. To me, that whole trap in the finale was brilliant and evil and showed a lot of forethought do skill.
* The Wolves are WILD. I don’t think they’d want Alexandria to have a nice comfy place to live. I think they’d want to burn that fucker to the ground. These people are animals. They are anarchists. Also, I don’t think they’d care too terribly much if they die.
I think I hit all your points but feel free to give me a shout if not. Good Lord I can’t wait to see these Wolves in action!!!
No wonder why it makes me more happier when Negan is part of the poll.
The scavengers (the wolves) entire goal was to get inside camps and steal all their stuff. Why would they be honking the horn of they knew there were hundreds of walkers nearby or why would they honk it at all. Even if they don’t know of the herd, they’d think honking a horn for that long would get some walkers. It has to be a distress call from someone inside Alexandria trying to get ricks attention. They all don’t know that it’s all happening right then.
Maybe they’re signaling others to attack.
Maybe they’re hoping to collect after the parade breaks up.
One thing bothering me about the idea of a distressed call is that Rick & crew seem totally uninformed if such a plan was implemented.
Radios… they were using radios. Would there be a distress call when they have radios?
I don’t think the radios were actually being used to communicate back to Alexandria? Appeared to be just setup to allow the away team to communicate with each other. But if they did have a base station back at Alexandria then yes, it would seem to have been the better way to communicate to Rick and his team. But I am thinking the warning is more so for all the members of Alexandria that they are being attacked. Along with Rick and his group that are located out of the area but still in range of the sound.
i feel you on that but i am with billyho here. i think the radios are means to coordinate, not in case of emergencies. as far as the Alexandrians are concerned, the walkers are the only threat, and the ones that are capable of handling it (for the most part) are already on the job.
I gotcha. I was just thinking that Carol would definitely have one. Maybe they do & that’s how ASZ is warned & the horn is something other than a distress signal. Today’s thinking has me favoring that this is a flanking maneuver brought on by the Wolves.
I bet it was that Gabriel chap, eyes too close together that one.
There should always be a “None of the above” or “Someone else” choice in such polls.
I don’t think It was any of the people on the Poll. It was likely whomever was manning the watch tower at the time which I think is Spencer? Or whoever Monroe yells at to sound the alarm.
Its obvious that the wolves are attacking and somebody has hit the horn as a distress signal. We are about to enter the No Way Out story arc of the comics. I love where this show is going
I love how the show gets everyone speculating different things! I’ve flipped flopped back & forth with this horn honker so many times it’s not funny!
I don’t know…I initially thought that it was the wolves, but Ron has so much teenage anxst that he might try this, if only to prove that Rick is dangerous
this is a reasonable argument, i like that idea. “rick IS dangerous!”
None of the above. Most on the list should be aware of Rick’s plan so they would not jeopardize that by redirecting the walkers. The wolves have no reason to blow the horn. The horn blower is going to be something totally unexpected. Can’t wait for Sunday to find out.
The epic arrival of Jesus?!
MIND = BLOWN
If I had to pick I would say the wolves.
We know they like to mess with time. So we have no idea when the events we’ve seen take place. I don’t think anyone would use an air raid siren at this point in time unless it’s a trap. I’m torn because I’m die hard comic and obviously they’re deviating. From clues in the show I believe it’s the Wolves but only because they have a mole/lookout. I think they get invaded by the Wolves. The wolves might have tried to use a horn to attract walkers because they seem to be adept at using walkers, so do the saviors(walkers guarding home base). Yet they didn’t anticipate the herd coming their way. So at first it might be a struggle of ASZ vs The Wolves. Followed by ASZ vs The Herd vs remaining Wolves vs Rick’s crew…. with some back story about Enid, maybe before her death…
I will say thank you to Robert Kirkman and crew. I’ve never put this much thought into a TV show. All the haters can kiss off. Keep doing what you do. The world of The Walking Dead just keeps getting bigger and better.
Little Pig, Little Pig, let me in, or I’ll blow your horn?
