In “Harry Potter,” there’s a prophecy that states, “neither can reside whereas the opposite survives,” referring to the protagonist and antagonist of the J.Okay. Rowling collection. Effectively, “Strolling Useless” producers are apparently followers of the Boy Who Lived, as a result of it appears that evidently they’ve been secretly using this augury, too.
Within the newest episode of the collection, “Useless or Alive Or,” Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Dr. Harlan Carson (R. Keith Harris) are on the run, making an attempt to evade the antagonizing Saviors after an escape from the Sanctuary earlier within the season. Father Gabriel has satisfied himself his objective in life is to get the nice physician to the Hilltop colony to take care of a pregnant Maggie (Lauren Cohan), who has been carrying Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) child for what looks as if my entire life.
Unhealthy transfer, Gabriel.
As per standard on “Strolling Useless,” tragedy strikes when the Saviors catch as much as the escapees. Dr. Carson makes an attempt as soon as once more to get away, however alas, a Savior kills him. Father Gabriel is devastated, however we in all probability might’ve informed him this was going to occur.
You see, “Strolling Useless” has secretly been using the “Harry Potter” rule, “neither can reside whereas the opposite survives,” this entire time. Solely it’s been doing so when it comes to docs: When one physician lives, one other is a goner.
It’s true. Simply take a look at the proof. Redditor MasterOfNoMercy made the decision after the episode “Honor,” by which newcomer Siddiq (Avi Nash) says he was a resident and has medical expertise:
The moment Siddiq talked about that he was a health care provider, the very first thing I assumed was Dr. Carson shouldn’t be lengthy for this world, just like how Denise was doomed when Dr. Carson was launched to the present.
Two episodes later, Dr. Carson is lifeless.
Like MasterOfNoMercy mentioned, the present already pulled the same transfer with Denise Cloyd’s dying in Season 6. Denise had been the physician at Alexandria. However after Dr. Carson was launched in Season 6, “Knots Untie,” Denise was lifeless a couple of episodes later.
Dr. Carson’s brother Emmett (Tim Parati), who was the Saviors’ physician, additionally briefly made an look in a couple of episodes of Season 7 earlier than being killed off. He was mainly only a plot machine that enabled the Saviors to take Harlan as their new physician/prisoner as an alternative.
Now that you already know the sample, look ahead to anybody who turns into related with medical expertise, and don’t get too connected. Physician’s orders.
Later within the episode, one other prediction got here true.
Within the closing moments of “Useless or Alive Or,” Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is proven masking his baseball bat, named Lucille, in zombie blood and telling his troops they’re going to make use of tainted weapons in opposition to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group. Any knick from these weapons might go away victims contaminated with the zombie virus
This can be a scene pulled straight out of the comics, and a predicament we had been lengthy anticipating.
All of it makes me a bit nervous for Rick. Bear in mind, the present gave us that cryptic future scene within the midseason premiere, which featured Rick injured beneath a tree. If that harm got here from an contaminated Savior weapon, he may very well be in bother.
On the intense aspect, although, not less than he’s not a health care provider.
