The Walking Dead is now in its tenth season on AMC and the series the final episode, episode 16, has just aired. In the teaser trailer, a mysterious character appears, with a covered up face, wielding two pick axe-like weapons. Showrunner Angela Kang announced the identity of the figure is yet to be revealed.
In the intense trailer for the final episode, Aaron (played by Ross Marquand) and Alden (Callan McAuliffe) are seen fighting off a group of walkers in the woods.
The camera then pans around quickly to a hooded character with his face covered, and he is brandishing two kama weapons.
The teaser left fans in deep discussion as they tried to figure out who the mystery character was, and they have come up with a theory.
Some fans think the man could be Duane Jones (Adrian Kali Turner) who is the young son of Morgan (Lennie James).
Duane featured in the very first series of The Walking Dead, and he and his dad offered shelter to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) when he first found out about the virus outbreak.

They initially think Rick has been bitten, so they tie him up, but he reveals his wound is from a gunshot and they release him.
Morgan then explains the story of the outbreak to Rick, who had been in a coma during the early days of the pandemic.
Fans were left devastating after learning Duane's mother was a zombie, and Morgan tries to muster up the courage to shoot her.
Later in season three, Rick sees a message saying 'Duane Turned' and Morgan tells Rick he had tried to shoot his mother but could not do it.
His mother ended up biting Duane, but it is not known whether Morgan shot Duane or let him roam as a walker.
