Just as anticipated, the season five premiere of Fear The Walking Dead brought with it many surprises. One in particular hinted at the group who took TWD’s Rick Grimes expanding their search to FTWD’s neck of the woods.

The season five premiere of Fear The Walking Dead gave us quite a bit to ponder over, though the biggest talking point has to be Althea’s trip back to the crash site.

Warning! Spoilers for the latest episodes of Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead follow. Read on at your discretion.

In the final moments of “Here To Help”, Althea journeys back to the crash site of their plane to investigate a mysterious body she caught a glimpse of. Her interest in the deceased is well-founded considering the person was wearing an odd soldier-like tactical suit.

When Althea (Maggie Grace) returns to the area, she finds the body is still in the same place. Upon further investigation, she uncovers a sealed pouch inside of the soldier’s vest. The bag contains a map and documents, all of which have the peculiar ‘three-circle’ symbol printed on them. This particular symbol holds much significance since it was also spotted on the helicopter which took Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) away in Season Nine of The Walking Dead. The appearance of this group in FTWD’s corner of the universe means Season Five will build towards the upcoming movies.

With Althea’s discovery of this soldier, we’re now one step closer to seeing Rick Grimes again — presumably in the TWD movies. Al was unfortunately taken captive by the same group but there’s no telling what will happen next. The last thing we’re shown is Al being dragged away by that soldier so it’s possible she’ll be sidelined this season. On the other hand, Althea is probably going to escape and extract information from this soldier — possibly even discerning where their group is located — and more importantly, where Rick is.

In any case, the presence of Jadis’ friends implies their group is recruiting people from all over the country. It’s unclear how far their reach extends though it appears to be nationwide. The question is: Do these people intend to capture more members of Morgan’s group? And will these survivors gather around Rick Grimes when the time comes for them to escape?
