pssst… nothin personnel kid
I’m calling it now that the Revenant is (was?) Stacy… my only reason is the hair.
Plausible, but A) “Swoopy long hair” is a pretty common hairstyle in this series (and with Zack’s art style in general). Pretty sure even Jenners had the same hairstyle before she cut it recently for wrestling. Plus, Stacy was blonde, so the hair isn’t exactly right to begin with. I mean, Stacy also didn’t have pale white skin and bright blue eyes, but it would be weird if all of her features changed EXCEPT her hair style, wouldn’t it? B) Jenners specifically said she waited to see if Stacy would come back after she died and she clearly didn’t. C) Stacy seemed to land face first at the bottom of that gorge. “REVENANT” does not look like someone who fell hundreds of feet onto her face. Even if we’re assuming some kind of regenerative TY mad science, I’d imagine we’d at least see some sign of that trauma.
Not saying it’s impossible, especially since there is still the lingering plot thread about Stacy’s immunity, but if it IS Stacy, you’d either have to explain how Stacy transformed into REVENANT without anybody noticing (she had a funeral with a casket) and without any face scars or even a crooked nose, or you’d have to explain how TY secretly got possession of a non-zombified human’s body, turned it into a zombie-eating monster, regenerated it back to full health, and then released it in the wild without James or Karrie (or presumably anybody) knowing. And then, either way, you’d STILL have to explain why a former supporter of zombie rights would now be going around hunting zombies, including Bacon, who was a friend of Stacy’s. I tend to favor theories that provide more answers than questions, and Stacy being REVENANT raises waaayy more questions than answers, and the “Stacy’s immunity” plot-thread could be resolved in any number of other, simpler ways, most likely involving some kind of possible cure derived from her immune system or something. I suppose it’s possible that TY was doing exactly that and Stacy transformed because of some weird Lichtman experiment gone wrong, but again, you’d still have to explain how TY was able to swap Stacy’s body with a fake for her funeral and conduct extensive experiments on it without Karrie finding out.
Meanwhile, if it were, say, Luna (who had long dark hair), the different body type would be a pretty clever misdirect and could easily be explained by some kind of hyper-metabolism (which would also explain the ravenous hunger). Or perhaps the zombie fetus inside her has transformed her in some way and she needs to eat zombies to help it grow. Point is, unlike Stacy, we already KNOW Luna was secretly captured by TY and has some anomalous zombie things going on that Lichtman wanted to experiment with, so that automatically makes her a more plausible suspect in my mind.
Another possibility is Barbara. Remember Barbara? Last time we saw her, she had a shotgun in her mouth, but we never heard a bang, and even if we did, it’s not like a zombie in this series has never survived a shotgun to the mouth. And Barbara DEFINITELY had a hair style that could match at least as well as Stacy’s and it wouldn’t have been difficult for TY to get a hold of Barbara’s body since she would have been just another zombie. Oh, and Barbara never had any face trauma, but if she did pull the shotgun trigger, she probably would have had an exit wound out the back of her head, and interestingly enough, we still haven’t seen the back of REVENANT’s head… Plus, Barbara’s MO was all about killing zombies, so that would be a decent explanation for why REVENANT is seemingly seeking out zombies specifically and would know about Bacon and potentially seek him out for misguided vengeance.
Finally, what about Kate (Geoffrey’s wife)? We haven’t seen Kate or Geoffrey for a very long time, Kate has a track record of eating people whole, and if Kate transformed into a zombie-eating monster that broke loose and went on a rampage, it would explain Geoffrey’s conspicuous absence.
