As Eric takes advantage of his newfound comfort, Idalia starts to worry about whether it’s beneficial to stay in a home where a “bruja,” a witch or sorceress, once lived. Idalia notices ghosts and listens to Alma’s voice while the couple is called “intruders.” In the Basement of the house, Idalia has a vision of a changed Maria. In the wake of these events, she informs Eric that they should get out of the house. Eric, however, observes Maria alive just across the gate. When he tries to unlock the gate so that Maria can enter the house, Idalia can stop him but warns him that Maria has died and that Eric murdered her family members.

Tales of the Walking Dead Episode 6 Ending: Are Dona Alma’s Ghost and the Walkers Real?

Since Dona Alma’s passing, Idalia begins to see her ghost wandering in the vicinity of her house. Alongside this, Idalia also observes several walkers, including Maria and her family. Although she claims she has seen the walkers, it may be a figment of her imagination. Maria’s ankle was broken while walking with Idalia and maybe Eric. She was bitten by walkers and then got turned. When Maria’s friends asked questions about her condition, Idalia was forced to defend herself as well. Eric killed them because they wouldn’t believe the story of Idalia regarding the incident that transpired to Maria.

Maria’s death and the deaths of Maria and her companions are sure to have caused enormous guilt and sorrow in the heart of Idalia, but for it to be worse after Dona Alma died. In her head, she could have directly or indirectly been responsible for several deaths that included Dona Alma and Maria. This belief could have led to images of the healer’s ghost and the wanderers that they “see” in the Basement of the house. Ghosts and walking figures may be hallucinations triggered by the guilt-ridden Idalia, who believes that she isn’t entitled to reside in Dona Alma’s home and utilize her resources or even help Eric to kill Maria’s friends.

Idalia believes in negativity and is afraid of the results of her “negative” actions. Furthermore, the anxiety created by the zombie apocalypse may be causing her to go to the point of paranoia. What she hears or experiences, as well as what she sees and hears, may result from this anxiety. It is likely that the same has affected Eric and when he believes he can see living Maria alive. Given that Eric has lived with Idalia from the time of the apocalypse. They must be suffering from folie-a-two, and both of them believe they are being affected by ghosts and walkers.

Are Idalia and Eric Dead or Alive?

If the possibility of paranoia takes over both Idalia and Eric Idalia, Eric begins to blame the earlier. In the blink of an eye, the ghost Dona Alma is seen as a ghost and “drags” them to the Basement, which could actually be the pair pushing one another to the Basement. Eric is convinced that Idalia’s mind has created walkers and ghosts and attempts to kill her by slashing her to end his own paranoia. In the course of the battle, Idalia must have managed to stab Eric to protect herself from the attack as well. In one of the show’s final scenes, we can see Eric and Idalia lying in the Basement rather than being stuck in the roots like they “imagine.”

They likely died about the stabs Idalia and Eric could inflict upon the other’s body. The show doesn’t provide any evidence that they’re alive. The stabs could have opened the way for massive blood loss for each of them, most likely leading to their deaths. Because Dona Alma’s home is isolated and locked, there’s not anyone there to assist them in recovering from the injuries. The physical condition of their victims, even if they can survive, won’t allow them to take care of themselves well. With these facts, they must have died.
