The Walking Dead Season 6: 5 Ways Glenn Could’ve Escaped Death (VIDEO)
Glenn Rhee, played by the wonderful Steven Yeun, died in The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 3: “Thank You.” Or did he?
We’ve already shared several reasons why Glenn might still be alive, and now we’re switching it up a bit and giving you 5 ways he could have escaped that near-certain dumpster death.

Basically, we’re still reeling from Glenn’s “passing” and just can’t bring ourselves to accept it, so we’re hanging onto every last shred of hope there is that we haven’t seen the last of the fan-favorite just yet.
Nicholas Fell First
If you watch Glenn’s death scene closely, it’s pretty clear Nicholas fell on top of Glenn, meaning, theoretically, the Alexandrian could be shielding Glenn with his already dead body.
Yes, the walkers are snacking on blood and guts, but it’s kind of obvious those innards aren’t Glenn’s. For one, you can vaguely see another body on top of Glenn, and he’s also screaming loudly as the walkers feast away. If those really were his guts he would’ve died almost instantly.
But if Nicholas is on top of him as we believe, there’s an ever-so-slight possibility Glenn could escape the horde unscathed.

Virtually any kind of escape Glenn might make would involve him smearing Nicholas’s guts all over himself to disguise himself as a walker. If he does that and plays it really cool, he might just have a fighting chance.
Glenn and Rick employed this walker guts tactic all the way back in Season 1 and it worked then so there’s no reason it couldn’t save Glenn’s ass now.
Glenn Was Saved
If Glenn didn’t die instantly (which we’ve already argued is very likely), it’s possible someone or something might draw the horde away and save him. In the Season 6 premiere we saw how easily the horde was distracted by the honking horn, and last season we were certain Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Aaron were in big trouble when they were trapped in that car surrounded by walkers, but Lennie James’s Morgan Jones swooped in and saved the day.
Where’s Morgan when you need him, again?

Nicholas Had a Mental Break
If we’re being perfectly honest, something about this whole sequence feels a little off to us, and we wouldn’t be totally shocked if Nicholas had some kind of mental break and imagined the whole thing. In the moments before Nicholas pulls the trigger, the camera literally gets foggy, so it seems like we’re being led to think Nicholas was not of sound mind.
Maybe he wanted to pull the trigger but couldn’t follow through? It most definitely wouldn’t be the first time Nicholas showed us just how much of a coward he is.
When Glenn falls to the ground he’s really close to that dumpster. Dumpsters are gross, but if Glenn has to dive in one to save himself from a massive walker horde we’re all for it.
We’re pulling for you, Glenny-poo!
