The latest episode of AMC's The Walking Dead ended with one heck of a cliffhanger, and an extended preview for next week's installment reveals a bit more footage that hints at who might be on the other line of that phone. Spoilers ahead!

As we saw last week, a distraught Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) received a mysterious phone call after going on a psycho zombie rampage following his wife's death. So who is it?

As readers of the comic know, Rick deals with Lori's death by having imaginary conversations with her on the telephone. A lot of the speculation has centered around that storyline coming up on the TV series—but this new snippet of footage hints that it could take a different turn.

Rick seems confused by who's on the line, and you'd have to think that if it was Lori he'd recognize the voice. It could all be a fake-out and they're simply following the comic storyline, but creator Robert Kirkman and company might see that as a little predictable and want to spice it up a little bit.

Considering that they're in the prison, and we know at least some of the infrastructure there is still intact (via the working alarms, etc.), it's possible the phone system might actually work and it's not all in Rick's head.

But who knows?

In the meantime, check out the international preview clip below:

What do you think? Who the heck is on the other end of that line?
