29. The identity of the mysterious stranger in the boots

There’s someone else out there, keeping tabs on Rick Grimes and the others. We first saw this mysterious individual while Rick and Aaron were approaching the houseboat. As they kept their focus on the water, someone appeared to be watching them from the brush. But all we could see of this person was nothing but a pair of boots.

This isn’t a one-off incident. We also know that this person would follow Rick and Aaron back to their safe zone. At the end of the mid-season finale, it would show the boots again, proving that they know about Alexandria. But it’s hard to tell what their intentions are if all we can see is a pair of shoes.

So, who is this person? Is this the owner of the houseboat wondering where these people come from? Is it Dwight or one of the Saviors keeping a close eye on Rick? Is it a lone wanderer, looking for a group to join and scoping them out first? Or are every single one of these guesses wrong?

I really couldn’t tell you. But AMC sure can. And perhaps they will when The Walking Dead returns.
