The Walking Dead season 9: Did episode 2 reveal how Maggie will leave the series?

There's a shadow hanging over The Walking Dead season 9 in the form of the forthcoming departures of lead stars Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan.

By the time the midseason finale airs in December, both actors will have exited the show although details on what will happen to their characters - Rick Grimes and Maggie Rhee - are currently unclear.

While it seems likely that Lincoln is definitively done with the series, a return for Cohan seems more likely - and tonight's episode, titled “The Bridge,” proved just that.

One moment sees Maggie taking some much-needed time off from hanging people at the Hilltop. She's hanging with her baby when Jesus (Tom Payne) walks in and the following interaction takes place.

Jesus: “The twins drop off another letter from Georgie?”

Maggie: “No, I was just reading one of the old ones she sent, thinking about how much she’s done for us. How much there’s still left to do.”

Jesus: “You thinking about joining her? You know she’ll never get tired of asking.”

Maggie: “No. I like her ideas, but not that much.”

Jesus: “I bet she’s got a killer record collection by now.”

Maggie: “I’m plenty busy building a future right here.”

Now, for those who don't remember, Georgie is the well-dressed woman who showed up in the twelfth episode of season eight.

Played by Jayne Atkinson (House of Cards' Cathy Durant), Georgie tells Maggie she wants to trade knowledge, hinting that she comes from a community comprised of decent people who want to build a future in the apocalypse.

Comic book readers believe the character is based on Pamela Milton, a recent addition who leads a settlement known as The Commonwealth and is poised to become a major player in a new storyline arc named The New World Order.

Based in Ohio, the Commonwealth is home to over 50,000 people - a full-sized community with jobs, theatre and military force. It's very likely that Maggie may take some time off by heading that way some time soon. 

If she's looking for transport, look no further than that mysterious helicotper which made yet another return in this week's episode. Coincidentally, its first appearance arrived in the same episode Georgie was first introduced in.
