Walker Stalker Convention has wrapped in New Jersey, but that won’t stop us from looking at all the photos from the weekend. The event took place on December 8th and 9th at the Raritan Center in New Jersey. First up, we’ve gathered some adorable photos taken of fans with The Walking Dead‘s Ross Marquand and Tom Payne. Marquand plays Aaron, and Payne played Jesus up until his mid-season finale demise.
Jesus and Aaron had become close over the 6 year time jump and had been sneaking away from Hilltop and Alexandria to meet up and practice fighting. The two are on a rescue mission to save Eugene from a herd of walkers, which leads to to a cemetery full of them. As Jesus fights them ninja style, one of the walkers whips out a knife and stabs him, thus introducing the true horror of The Whisperers.
One thing is for sure though, these photos do not make us feel dead inside.

Jesus Shaves. #wscnj @WalkrStalkrCon (thanks @justanactor for always being down with my ideas 🤣) (I guess @TraynorLand deserves a shout out too for also making this joke in Atlanta) pic.twitter.com/nJPC3jJvJm

#WSCNJ Ross said he loved my LGBT shirt! Last year at WSC New Jersey I got to tell him and Jordan about how they helped me come out. I’m so happy that I got this updated op with the sparring partners!! pic.twitter.com/u8qPTBA03o
