Viewers haven’t seen an undead infant yet, but it’s something that you know The Walking Dead is going to unveil eventually. Unfortunately, there might be a possibility that Maggie will give birth to the zombaby.
According to Inside Pulse, Maggie and Glenn might take a big risk by trying to have a baby. Lauren Cohan got the Gleggie baby buzz started up again at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. She was asked about rumors that Maggie will be pregnant when The Walking Dead returns in October, and of course she refused to give a yes or no answer.
“There are a lot of people who read the comics and you can appreciate that the show does divert from the comics. There is a lot in store for all of us. I think this season features more monumental change for all of us on this stage.”
Maggie already has a baby in The Walking Dead comic books, so it’s definitely possible that she’ll end up pregnant at some point on the show. However, Lauren Cohan was careful to point out that the AMC series doesn’t always follow its source material. Perhaps Glenn will die before he can get Maggie pregnant, or maybe their baby will be born but will have to be sacrificed to bloodthirsty zombie god Robert Kirkman along with Daryl Dixon. The Walking Dead TV series could simply reverse what happened in the comics by letting Maggie keep her husband but lose her baby.
Maggie and Glenn would certainly be taking a big risk by trying to have a baby during the zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead fans saw what happened to Lori during childbirth, and baby Judith was lucky to survive her mother’s emergency C-section. With no doctors or medical equipment, the Gleggie baby will have to be a real fighter (and hopefully it won’t turn out to be a biter).
Fortunately, the survivors might find a whole hospital full of medical equipment during season 5. The Gleggie baby rumors started back in June when The Spoiling Dead Fans reported that a “popular AMC show” was looking for an old sonogram machine to use on the set. It’s possible that the group of survivors will head to a hospital in search of this machine after discovering that Maggie is pregnant. However, it’s also a possibility that Beth has been abducted by some weirdos who are running a human breeding program. The Walking Dead Comic-Con trailer did show Maggie’s sister in a hospital setting.
Do you think that The Walking Dead would dare to have one of the female survivors give birth to a zombaby? And do you think that Maggie, Glenn, and their rumored child will all survive season 5?
The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, October 12 at 9pm ET/PT on AMC.
