Today (Friday, May 23) they said TWD is meant to be filming at a Griffin, GA house and the one next to it, for interiors. You may recall seeing that beautiful Southern home and the speculation that it may be tied to the Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) storyline. That ties into the other theory that Beth is with Father Gabriel Stokes, who may or may not be played by Seth Gilliam. That is pure speculation, and if any of it is wrong it all falls apart. (And no one seems to know exactly where Emily Kinney is. L.A.? NY? Atlanta?)
But the Spoiling Dead Fans shared a photo the other day of blood spatter and a metal plated, reinforced door at the Griffin location for today’s filming. “Crew was inside getting the interior dressed up for filming. Windows are now boarded up at the house that will be used for interior shots next to 441 [441 is the street number of the beautiful home]. Crosses are on the wood that's covering the windows. Also looks like another cover has been placed on the door.
Yesterday, they started tracking the rumor that today’s filming will involve Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) “going into the house we reported about and clearing it. We are still looking into this to try and find out who else, if anyone else, will be there.”
They added that the location “will be locked down tight because of critical scenes being filmed.”
But there’s now an early running theory that Rick and Daryl go into the house find Beth and Gabriel inside. Can you imagine? As far as we know, they haven’t even started Episode 3 yet!
Later on May 23, they added, "Steven and Lauren have been spotted at the Griffin location. There is a 'fire' and smoke coming from the back of the house. It's also being said that the 'crosses' on the covered windows are actually shotgun ports." So that's Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) also present at the house.
Is your mind spilling with theories? Do you think we are being led astray or could they really be free of Terminus already, and possibly ready to reunite with Beth? Bethyl shippers, this could be the moment you've waited for! (It would also be nice for Maggie to see her sister again!)
