In episode 3 of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon spinoff, a theory about Laurent's purpose in the show is debunked. It was previously hinted that Laurent, a young boy, held prophetic abilities and was a messiah. However, Daryl reveals in the recent episode that Laurent is just an ordinary boy who got lucky. This revelation changes the narrative direction of the spinoff and suggests a focus on zombie experiments. Laurent's role may still hold importance, but not in the supernatural way previously thought.
