Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is gone, yet she is not dead. The 5th episode of season 9 of “The Walking Dead” revealed that she neglected the Hilltop with the mysterious Georgie during the big deal hop that came toward the finish of Rick Grimes’ final episode.
What’s more, for reasons unknown, may have also been Maggie’s final episode ever. The creatives on the show & the folks at AMC are supporting their bets by not murdering her off. Be that as it may, it’s entirely possible she’ll never show up on “The Walking Dead” ever repeat.
Cohan said she would almost certainly return to “The Walking Dead” for at any rate part of Season 9.
We had heard rumblings of Cohan’s exit from the series all year, following stories of a contentious contract dispute in which Cohan needed equal pay with other longtime series regulars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. After signing on to ABC’s “Whiskey Cavalier,” which will make a big appearance mid-season,
That part of the season is currently finished, as “TWD” showrunner Angela Kang has affirmed that they don’t have plans for her to show up again in Season 9. Also, on the episode of “Talking Dead” after the season 9 mid-season finale, Chris Hardwicke read a statement from the producers which re-affirmed that Cohan won’t be back this season however that “Maggie’s story is not done” and that they “want to have her back” at some point later on.
Lauren Cohan addressed the situation again as of late in similarly ambiguous terms
Saying that “there may have been some conversations” about her arrival to “The Walking Dead” yet that we’ll have a need to pause and “see what happens.”
That all presumably felt like it was coming totally out of fantasy land, considering how Maggie did not get any proper sendoff. Her final (as far as we probably are aware) episode also being Rick’s last didn’t help, since the event worked as Rick’s demise episode.
Be that as it may, what AMC is doing with Rick may also be the way for wrapping up Maggie’s story. Two weeks back, toward the finish of their final episode, Rick wound up being carried by helicopter far from Virginia, and what befalls him wherever he ends up will be the subject of a series of movies.
