'The Walking Dead' star Avi Nash confirms character's fate and talks Sunday's big twist: 'I wasn't sad by it'
Jace Downs/AMC Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead," season 10, episode seven, "Open Your Eyes." Insider spoke with Avi Nash, who plays Siddiq on the AMC show, about Sunday's big twist and death. Nash said he was clued in about Dante's true identity before they started working on season 10, and he even knew about the reveal before Juan Javier Cardenas, who plays Dante, knew. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Sunday's "The Walking Dead" surprised with two big shocks. Siddiq discovers that Dante (Juan Javier Cardenas) is actually a Whisperer who infiltrated the Alexandria community. Before he can tell anyone, Dante kills him on the spot. In case Siddiq's fate was a bit unclear, Nash confirms with Insider that Siddiq is indeed dead.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's how to escape a flooding vehicleSee Also:'The Walking Dead' has been hinting at Sunday night's big twist all season — here's every clue you may have missed'The Walking Dead' just pulled off one of its biggest twists in years and it's a testament to how good the show is againKelly Clarkson had her kids interview Jason Momoa, and they asked him where Aquaman uses the bathroom

'The Walking Dead' has been hinting at Sunday night's big twist all season — here's every clue you may have missed
Jace Downs/AMC Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead," season 10, episode seven episode, "Open Your Eyes." Sunday's episode helped shed some light on why Siddiq (Avi Nash) has been having so many flashbacks to when he was kidnapped by the Whisperers. It turns out his friend and fellow doctor, Dante (Juan Javier Cardenas), was among the Whisperers who held him captive. Nash walks Insider through some of the clues scattered across season 10 hinting at Dante's true identity. Sunday's episode of "The Walking Dead" shocked with a major twist from the comics.  Dante (Juan Javier Cardenas) is revealed to be a Whisperer who infiltrated the Alexandria community. Unfortunately, by the time Siddiq (Avi Nash) puts the pieces together, it's too late. Dante kills him before he can let anyone know his true identity. It's a complete departure from the comics where Dante is a hero and love interest for Maggie.  The reveal didn't come out of nowhere. If you've been paying close attention, the series has been sprinkling small clues to Dante's Whisperer reveal since the premiere. Keep reading to see the hints you may have missed along the way. Siddiq kept focusing on Dante's mouth. AMC On the season premiere, Siddiq starts zoning out as the camera hones in on Dante's mouth. A rush of images flood Siddiq from when he was held captive by the Whisperers. Dante playfully calls him out on it by diverting his attention. "The way you're staring at my mouth is making me warm and tingly inside," Dante tells Siddiq. "Kiss me already, s---." We eventually learn that Dante was the Whisperer who held Siddiq's eyes open and forced him to watch his friends get slaughtered last season. Dante's mouth was inches from Siddiq's face as he whispered in his ear to keep his eyes open. "You've definitely hit on one, focusing on the mouth because that's the only piece of the Whisperer that he could see through the mask," Avi Nash told Insider.   Alpha knew how many times the group crossed the border. Jackson Lee Davis/AMC On the season's third episode, Michonne lies to Alpha when she says the group has crossed onto her land once to stop a massive fire.  Alpha calls her out on the lie, saying she knows Michonne and others have gone past the Whisperer border three times.  "During the fire, you walked my land. And during the winter storm you walked my land. During your search along the river, you and the man with the metal arm walked my land," says Alpha, recounting each time without fail. "That's three times. We are always watching." It's a perplexing moment on the show because Alpha and the Whisperers simply weren't around during the winter to know that Michonne and the other survivors crossed onto their land. Showrunner Angela Kang confirmed to Insider last season that the Whisperers went somewhere South.  That should have been a big hint that a Whisperer may have been planted within the communities. It's suggested that Dante was secretly wandering off to meet up with Alpha and the other Whisperers. Siddiq remembers Dante's clucking while trying to focus on surgery. AMC On episode three, as Dante and Siddiq go to perform surgery on Carol, Siddiq zones out again. This time, clucking noises can be heard.  It's later revealed on Sunday's episode that Dante was making those noises into Siddiq's ear while he was holding him in place on season nine.  "I think during Carol's surgery he also made that clucking sound, that pop pop sound, which is kind of a tick," said Nash. "I think that's actually what starts Siddiq's tremors and flashback in that moment when he's not able to actually perform the surgery."

'The Walking Dead' just pulled off one of its biggest twists in years and it's a testament to how good the show is again
Jace Downs/AMC Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead" season 10, episode seven, "Open Your Eyes." Sunday's episode of "TWD" made two huge changes from the comics. The show revealed a member of Alexandria to be an undercover Whisperer. The series subsequently killed off a character who survived Robert Kirkman's comic run.  The surprise twists are a testament to how showrunner Angela Kang has turned critical opinion of the zombie show around since taking over the AMC series. By making "TWD" a true ensemble again and subverting viewer expectations, the show's 10th season is the best it's had in years.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. "The Walking Dead" pulled off the show's biggest twist in years on Sunday night with a one-two punch. On the episode's final moments, Siddiq (Avi Nash) realized the doctor he has been working with all season, Dante (Juan Javier Cardenas), was an enemy Whisperer who infiltrated the community. It's one reason Siddiq has been having so many traumatic memories of his time with the Whisperers any time he was around. Dante was one of his captors who forced him to watch the deaths of his friends.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 9 items to avoid buying at CostcoSee Also:'The Walking Dead' star Avi Nash confirms character's fate and talks Sunday's big twist: 'I wasn't sad by it''The Walking Dead' has been hinting at Sunday night's big twist all season — here's every clue you may have missedKelly Clarkson had her kids interview Jason Momoa, and they asked him where Aquaman uses the bathroom

'Watchmen': Everything you need to know from the comic after Episode 5
The fifth chapter of HBO's Watchmen takes us right to the end of the comic, and reveals how it all happened. Watchmen is much more of a sequel to the comic than it first seems. It's set decades later and focuses primarily on a different set of characters, but there's no question that it's a direct continuation of the story laid out by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins more than 30 years ago. The idea in these weekly looks back isn't to leave you with spoiler-y details that the show will get into further down the line, but rather to give you the context you need so you can better understand what just happened. If you've never read the comics and don't plan to any time soon, but you still want to keep up with HBO's Watchmen, keep reading.
