The Walking Dead viewers saw the temporary exit of Maggie Rhee (played by Lauren Cohan) back in season nine.
During Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) final, emotional episode, Maggie made some moves of her own.
The following episode saw the residents of Hilltop in a scenario five years in the future – and Maggie was nowhere to be seen.
Apart from vague references to her, Maggie wasn’t even mentioned in the show in the episodes following, leaving fans to wonder whether she was killed off, or left because of some bad blood between characters.
Many viewers also assumed she had left to be with Georgie (Jayne Atkinson) who fans assumed was part of the Commonwealth community.
However the latest edition of The Walking Dead comic book saw the final moments of the series ever.
In a shocking move, the last pages of The Walking Dead issue 193 revealed that the series had come to an end, leaving fans devastated.
Once fans had read the final moments of the last chapter had, it was revealed the Commonwealth and Alexandria have become part of the same enormous safe zone, creating what is essentially a city.
Set years after the events of The Walking Dead, the final panels show Maggie has been elected president of the enormous community.
Considering Maggie has left Hilltop in the TV show, could this be the direction she is going towards for her final character arc?

The AMC show never directly follows the stories laid out by The Walking Dead’s comic books, but it certainly takes a lot of inspiration from them.
Therefore, Maggie could make a triumphant return to the show with a lot more authority as leader of the Commonwealth in the upcoming tenth season.
But would this change the dynamic between the original team?
Meanwhile, Aaron star Ross Marquand has been discussing the Grimes family, and how he would love to see them return to the show.
Speaking on the 4D Xperience Podcast to fellow The Walking Dead star Dan Fogler, he explained: “See, I wish — I mean, obviously, the show deviates — I just wish Rick and Carl were still around.
“I think everyone knows at this point if you’re a fan of the show, and they’ve announced, that there’s gonna be more with Rick. So you know he’s not really dead.
“But Carl, I think in the comic books Carl goes on to be the next hero – the next big saviour of everything.”
Unfortunately the TV version of Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) is dead, so Rick is the only Grimes available to return.
But would he eventually reunite with Aaron and Maggie in the final moments of the show?
The Walking Dead is expected to return to AMC later this year.
