WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Walking Dead.
In the grand finale of The Walking Dead season 10, it seemed as if Gabe (played by Seth Gilliam) was going to be the next casualty.
The skinheads got through his blockade and were about to attack when, to fans’ delight, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) returned to rescue him from a brutal fate.
But she wasn’t alone though as Maggie was joined by a masked figure, dressed in a hoodie and hockey mask.
The mysterious individual wielded two dangerous-looking blades and helped to push the skinheads back.
Viewers were left in the dark though by the end of the show as the person’s identity wasn’t revealed.
Who is the Masked Stranger in The Walking Dead?
One theory as to who this masked stranger is , is Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman) who supposedly died in Fear The Walking Dead season three.
He was murdered by Madison (Kimberly Jan Dickens) who hit Troy over the head with a hammer.
However, a theory is now going around that it is actually Troy under the mask, assisting Maggie.
Forbes magazine explained the idea of the calculating character making a comeback.
Forbes said: “Usually when characters die in The Walking Dead, they die brutally and publicly and irrevocably.
“Either torn apart by zombies or shot in the head or getting their brains bashed in with a baseball bat.
“While sure, I can buy that Troy died from two quick hammer strikes to the head from Madison, this is TV, and it’s easy to imagine that he was just knocked out, the dam blew up around him and he somehow survived with a serious head injury…one that might require you to wear a mask to cover some sort of disfigurement?”
There is also another possible character whom fans would love to see return to the show.

Duane Jones (Adrian Kali Turner) was last seen in one of the early episodes of The Walking Dead.
He was the son of Morgan (Lennie James) but in series three, he had gone mad because of the off-screen death of Duane.
Morgan explained how his son had died while trying to kill his mother Jenny who had been turned into a zombie.
Taking to Twitter, one fan said: “Okay hear me out, that person w the mask and weapon saving Alden/Aaron.
“Morgan went crazy when his wife/son were killed.
“We never saw Duane actually die, what if Morgan never saw him get killed? That would be incredible.”
Another fan added: “How epic would it be if the masked character with the pickaxes (or whatever they are) was Duane Jones, son of Morgan Jones. Maybe he never died and 10 years later he’s back and a bada**.”
The identity of the masked stranger wasn’t revealed in the finale but series 10 isn’t over yet.
There are going to be an extra six episodes where fans will most likely find out who this weapon-wielding character is.
These new episodes are expected to air sometime in early 2021.
The Walking Dead is available to watch on AMC.
