The very end of tonight's Walking Dead introduces a huge twist - walkers that talk! Well, not exactly. These "talking" walkers are not really what they appear to be, and are actually the new season 9 villains - a group of people who live among the walkers called the Whisperers.
The Whisperers not only wear walker skin to blend in, but they also live among the walker herds. According to Uproxx, they are a nomadic group who travels in walker herds. The group still manages to communicate while traveling by – you guessed it – using a whispered tone.
In Robert Kirkman's source material, a group of villains was introduced beyond the All Out War story which called themselves the Whisperers. This group wears the flesh of the dead and walks among them, acting barbarically and keeping their voices to a whisper as a means to blend in.
Although Beta might believe otherwise, what's happening here isn't actually a conversation between man and zombie - Beta is just losing his grip on reality.

So, what's going on here? A little more than 10 years of story time into the zombie apocalypse, can the dead speak all of the sudden? The short answer: no.

But why were Morgan's eyes red on 'Fear the Walking Dead'? Morgan had a gunshot wound on his shoulder that was infected and it wasn't until he allowed a genuinely kind stranger (which is hard to come by in the post-apocalyptic world, by the way) to treat it that he started to get better.
Morgan Suffers A Bullet To Head Not A Bite
So the fact that he did survive the gunshot doesn't mean he's exactly immune but somehow he's able to walk amongst Walkers and this was never possible in previous seasons or on The Walking Dead series.
