'Longmire' season 5 spoilers: Walker Browning as the intruder? Author Craig Johnson to host fundraising events


With the production of season 5 of Netflix’s western drama “Longmire” apparently starting this week, some viewers speculate on what the narrative may focus on.

Actor Lou Diamond Philips who portrays Henry Standing Bear reportedly announced the schedule for filming last month. Although no details regarding the plot have been revealed yet, this did not stop fans on suggesting what may happen on the storyline.

Rumors have it that the new installment may pick up from where season 4 left off – with Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) and girlfriend Dr. Donna Monaghan (Ally Walker) on the verge of a possible attack in his home. The premiere episode is said to probably feature who broke through the sheriff’s front door.

Since the intruder is deemed to be vengeful and may try to settle an old score with the lead character, the most likely suspect is Walker Browning (Callum Keith Rennie). Viewers may remember him as the foreman of the oil rig who Henry shot and arrested afterwards. What may have added to the assumption is that Browning was missing by the end of the last season, presumably making plans on how to take down his personal enemy.

Meanwhile, Henry, who is Walt’s closest friend, may also aid him in the investigation as he usually does in previous cases. He was last seen trying to help a fellow Cheyenne tribe member who was raped by a couple of locals.

Since no official information has been announced yet by the production team, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.

As fans wait, they may try to catch the New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson who wrote the eight-novel source materials, at three fundraising events in various locations around Effingham, Illinois. The event will take place from April 29 to 30.

There will be a two-hour cocktail gathering at Lake Sara on the first day where fans can mingle with Johnson. He will then host a reading in the Workman Room of Effingham Public Library the day after. Interested participants may purchase tickets and all the funds raised will go to the Library’s Building Fund.
