Prepare for all hell to break loose tonight on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” after a relatively peaceful premiere… except that whole zombies dropping from the sky thing. And when we left off at the end, we had one poor prison gang resident who seems to have died of some kind of mystery illness, and turned. While everyone else was still sleeping.
That just ain’t good.
A few mild spoilers:
Last week on “The Talking Dead,” producers already revealed that the proverbial poop is about to hit the fan, and that the premiere was a set up of how peaceful things have been, so they can tear that peace to shreds. They also dropped a bomb by revealing that there is an illness and an airborne one at that, so a deadly illness sweeping through, killing people and causing them to turn as all the dead do without a bullet to the brain… well, that’s a problem that could make the Governor look tame.
They also dished a bit on romance rumors for Daryl (Norman Reedus) and the rather uncomfortably long hug with Beth (Emily Kinney.) Is it misdirection for a hook up with Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride), or are Beth and Daryl maybe the next love match?
I suppose that’s all pretty frivolous thinking when you have a walker running loose in the prison compound turning god-knows-how-many-people before he’s discovered, and from the looks of the video clip below, they don’t seem to discover him right away, unless this is after that crisis.
What do you think will happen tonight? How many will die before they discover this guy? Will Daryl get lucky? And where is that pesky Governor?
