(SPOILER) After the anticipating Episode 5 of The Walking Dead‘s Season 6, we have been so anxious to learn whether Glenn did actually get torn up by that zombie. Many TWD fans are also bursting at the seams of anticipation for the next episode.

Glenn has continuously risked his life for the safety of his group.
