Yes, baby Judith. The adorable junior Grimes can become the most skilled survivor in "The Walking Dead" universe. She is a little baby right now, but showrunner Scott Gimple believes that she can be as tough as papa Grimes. "The Walking Dead" season 5 is expected to take baby Judith's story forward.
After the prison battle in "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 8, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) believed that baby Judith died in the attack. However, she turned out to be the perfect post-apocalypse baby or one can say the poster child of baby survivors.
Showrunner Scott Gimple talked to The Stir about "The Walking Dead" season 5. When asked who can be the most skilled survivor, he placed his bet on baby Judith.
"I would say if someone like Judith can make it to adolescence, I think they're probably best equipped to survive. But making it to adolescence at that age is a pretty difficult thing in this world," said Scott.
Scott believes that if baby Judith survives, she can become a great survivor in the zombie-infested world. However, the condition is that if she can make it to adolescence. With daddy Rick and brother, Carl by her side she can surely survive. Also, Judith has aunt Michonne (Danai Gurira) who is besties with Carl these days. Certainly, aunt Michonne can teach her a couple of katana-slaying techniques.
"The Walking Dead" season 4 finale saw Rick Grimes, Carl Grimes, Michonne, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.) stuck inside a train car at the Terminus. It has to be seen if they can come out and defeat Terminus residents and move ahead to, perhaps, Washington D.C.
"The Walking Dead" season 5 airs this October on AMC.
