Eagle-eye watchers of The Walking Dead Season 4 finale noticed a container of powdered milk near the train car labeled “A” that’s currently holding Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), and just about everyone else. Many wondered if the milk meant that baby Judith was nearby — perhaps in one of the other cars filled with screaming people — but the Powers That Be aren’t giving us anything substantial to go off of. Hmm, what else is new?!

The folks over at The Hollywood Reporter asked showrunner Scott Gimple and comic book creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman if the milk was a sign of baby Judith and, not surprisingly, both gentlemen kept it pretty close to the vest. “It would seem like they have people in there that they're feeding. Interesting,” Scott noted, refusing to even mention Judith by name.

The respected showrunner may have ignored the Judith aspect of that query altogether, but the fact that these Terminus folk appear to be feeding the people they’re holding captive could be another hint that they are, in fact, the cannibals from the comics. If they wanted Rick and co. dead, they wouldn’t have shot only at their feet, and, most likely, they’d be dead already. Why else would you save a train car full of people and feed them if you didn’t plan on eating them at a later date? OK, so there are plenty of reasons why the Terminus peeps could be keeping our group alive, but just work with us here.

But back to the powdered milk being food for Judith. Robert Kirkman was slightly more direct than Scott, telling THR that “anything is possible,” but his response is still frustratingly vague.

Let’s also not forget that we don’t even know if Judith (or her pack mules Carol Peletier

and Tyreese) have even reached Terminus yet. Last we saw this trio in Episode 14: “The Grove” they were bound for this “sanctuary” but we never actually saw them get to the entrance. Robert says of Carol, Ty, and Judith, “That's our big unknown moving into the fifth season: where these characters are and how they will play into this Terminus story. It's entirely possible that they're all in another train car somewhere. It's entirely possible that none of them are at Terminus or that none of them ever arrived there.” Way to keep the options open, RK!

Do you think the powdered milk we saw at Terminus in the Season 4 finale was meant for Judith, or is that too obvious? Tell us your thoughts and theories below!

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
