Not all romantic meetings are cute. When it’s The Walking Dead, they’re, in fact, usually pretty gory.
During this year’s New York Comic Con, the cast of The Walking Dead took to the stage in Madison Square Garden to discuss what’s next for the show as it heads into its tenth season. For the most part, the cast was mum about specific spoilers, but just as the panel was coming to an and, a surprising person hopped up onto the stage the blew everyone in the audience away.
Such is the case with this preview of an upcoming episode of The Walking Dead, which gives us a meaningful bit of backstory: an exploration of how Alpha and Beta, the leaders of the Whisperers faction, met. I won’t spoil too much of what happens, but it’s, well, pretty typically The Walking Dead. It’s certainly not fun.
This episode will follow the pretty wild season ten premiere, which had some truly out-of-this-world storytelling.
The Walking Dead airs on Foxtel in Australia.
For the first time in a long time, The Walking Dead was good last year. To use an appropriate metaphor, it had become a saggy, bloated corpse, but new showrunner Angela Kang gave it new life — with more consistent characters, faster storytelling, and the ability to surprise audiences again. Last night’s season 10 premiere wasn’t quite on par with season nine, but it sure had one hell of a surprise.
