The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 6 Scene Fans Thought Made No Sense

As the survivors in "The Walking Dead" continue rebuilding their fallen communities, new challenges keep popping up. In the latest episode, "On the Inside," Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) must grotesquely torture one of Maggie Rhee's (Lauren Cohan) allies to prove his allegiance to the Reapers.

Meanwhile, Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and Virgil (Kevin Carroll) are being pursued by an unseen threat. They take refuge in a seemingly abandoned home, where he encourages her to rest before they pick up their journey. Connie is uneasy in their new digs, but because Virgil doesn't know American Sign Language, she is forced to write everything down.

This quickly becomes a problem when she spots a pair of yellowed eyes watching them from behind the walls, and before they're able to escape, trap doors separate them with no way to communicate. Feral people with grimy, translucent skin chase them as though they're on the dinner menu, until the two manage to reunite and defeat the group.

While many fans on the show's subreddit praised how effectively the episode highlighted Connie's deafness, there was one moment that left them very confused.

Where was Virgil's sense of urgency?

"Oldest rule of horror: No one runs from the house despite EVERY REASON TO RUN!" exclaimed u/CRL10. Fans couldn't understand why Virgil was so dismissive of Connie's pure terror after searching the house. Rather than leaving immediately and then asking for a written explanation, he lets an increasingly frazzled Connie struggle to express her concerns until it's too late.

"Why the actual f*** is he waiting for her to write or carve into the wall," asked u/L3sPau1. "She's frantic. GTFO." Others echoed this sentiment that, despite their communication barrier, the signs of fear are universally understood.

"If someone was hysterical after checking the house for threats, I'd just let them lead me out," said u/Racing2F. However, not all fans agreed with the popular comments questioning Virgil's reluctance to leave.

Some fans pointed out that Connie was dehydrated, sleep-deprived, and likely dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder after being trapped alone in the cave. "It's more likely that she's nuts than creepy hillbillies," noted u/SeaBasil.

Which is fair — who would've expected a feral family running a house of horrors in the middle of nowhere, even on "The Walking Dead"?
