As The Walking Dead heads towards its grand finale, several spin-offs will keep the zombie franchise alive beyond the end. The good thing about it: numerous still open puzzles that have no place in the last episodes of the main series could be solved in it.
One of these unsolved mysteries has now been revisited for the first time in six years in the anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead, which tells a self-contained story in each of its six episodes: Do you remember Heath?
The Walking Dead brings back the ominous PPP card
In the fifth installment of the new The Walking Dead series, the hero played by The Boys star Jessie T. Usher struggles with fragmented memories and amnesia. In one scene, while he (and us viewers) are trying to figure out what part he played in a small-town murder, there is one mysterious map to discover that are in his possession. There are three letters on it: PPP.
The PPP map was last seen in Season 7
While this card plays no further role in the episode’s plot, The Walking Dead fans will immediately understand the importance of this object. Because over 6 years ago, the character Tara (Alanna Masterson) found in the Season 7 Episode The Oath such a card. She was the only clue to the possible whereabouts of Heath (Corey Hawkins), who had just disappeared.
To date, The Walking Dead has not finally clarified either Heath’s whereabouts or the meaning of the PPP card. Why is this riddle being taken up again? It is possible that director Michael E. Satrazemis only one funny easter egg wanted to put in for the fans. The director has already directed 40 episodes in the The Walking Dead franchise. Including the episode The Oath.
Was Heath something kidnapped by the Scavengers and extradited to the CRM? Was PPP just an early version of the three ring one CRM logos? Or was he kidnapped by a completely different group? The PPP conundrum has haunted fans for years.
And the renewed reference to it indicates: one Answer after years of uncertainty could be within reach. One of the three upcoming spin-off series for Maggie and Negan, Rick and Michonne and for Daryl traveling to France could finally save us.
When does Tales of the Walking Dead start in Germany?
In the US, the current The Walking Dead spin-off was broadcast from August 14th to September 19th, 2022. Unfortunately, a German start date has not yet been set. A release on Amazon Prime Video would be possible, where the spin-offs Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond can already be seen.
