“The Walking Dead” may have been recently taken over by the evil Negan, but he may sooner or later meet his demise as most villains eventually do. During the last episode, some viewers may have overlooked what could be a start of Rick and Daryl’s revenge against the Saviors and their leader.

Spoiler alert: This preview contains plot details about season 7 of “The Walking Dead.” The seventh season premiered Oct. 20. The series is available for Australian viewers to watch on Foxtel every Monday, 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm.

Negan and his Saviors visited Rick and company in Alexandria during the last episode of “The Walking Dead.” It marked the first time the two groups saw each other since the season premiere, when Negan brutally murdered Abraham and Glenn.

Negan tagged Daryl along for the visit, although the Saviors’ leader did not allow him to speak to his allies. But it seems that didn’t stop Daryl from somehow establishing some sort of communication with Rick. A number of “The Walking Dead” fans are convinced that Daryl used Morse code to send Rick a message.

During the start of the episode, eagle-eyed fans noticed Daryl’s excessive blinking while he was staring at Rick, who looked astonished afterwards. Fans believe that Daryl may have relayed something to Rick via Morse code and that Rick’s dumbfounded gaze meant that he was trying to process what Daryl communicated.

The Morse code theory stemmed from the fact that Michonne was walking past an American Morse code chart at the beginning of the show. Followers of “The Walking Dead” believe that it was a deliberate attempt by the show’s creators to stir things up. If this is true, what exactly did Daryl blink about to Rick?

According to Movie Pilot, a Redditor deciphered Daryl’s code as “I East.” Negan and the Saviors’ home, The Sanctuary, is supposedly located east of Alexandria. Daryl may have just given Rick and his crew the location of the enemies’ hideout to either help him escape or obliterate the entire opposing squad.

Rick previously said that he was “not in charge anymore,” but he may just be waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring down Negan. Just before the last episode of “The Walking Dead” ended, Rick was staring at Daryl as the Saviors were heading back to The Sanctuary. The two may have exchanged a few confirmatory glances about their earlier chat. Revenge may be on its way.
