The Walking Dead Promos & Sneak Peeks Give Us A Look At The Next Ep, Still
Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead, entitled “Claimed,” was a bit light on the action and didn’t push the story forward much, but it still had some memorable moments. Now, as usual, AMC has released a first look at next week’s episode, “Still.” It looks to focus on Beth and Daryl, a pair that was mostly absent in the last episode. More and more, it feels like the writers are setting up the group’s reunion at the safe zone outside of Washington D.C. In the promo above, we see Beth and Daryl fight zombies for survival and a chance at hope.
The cable network also released two preview videos featuring Beth setting up camp, while Daryl hunts for food. As with a majority of these sneak-peek videos from The Walking Dead, it’s likely this scene is from the very beginning of the next episode, just before a zombie comes in to surprise the pair.
The next video takes place at night and features Beth and Daryl trying to get a car started. With no luck, Beth and Daryl hide in the car’s trunk as zombies surround the car. Maybe it’s just me, but that doesn’t sound like a great idea. It just leaves you trapped with no place to go, and now zombies are surrounding you. I know Daryl is a badass with a crossbow, but it will be interesting to see how they get out of this jam.
We’ve also go a pair of behind-the-scenes videos that explore the ins and outs of last night’s episode. The first one centers on the logistics of how the two main set pieces were made: Abraham’s introduction and Rick’s scuffle in the bathroom. The first zombie attack on Abraham injected some humor in last night’s episode, as the Army Sergeant killed three zombies, one with a particularly brutal head smash. The second attack involved Rick trying to get out of the house as a group of unnamed men are trying to take it over. Outnumbered and unarmed, Rick lurks in the shadows and behind doors before coming into contact with one of the men in the bathroom. Rick then kills the man and takes his machine gun before exiting out of the window.
Finally, we have a look at Michonne and Carl scavenging for supplies in an abandoned house. While looking around the home, Michonne opens up about her life before the zombie outbreak. She once had a three-year-old son named Andre, who supposedly died during the chaos. While clearing the house of any usable supplies, Michonne comes across a nursery and bedroom with dead children inside. It’s a haunting scene and reminds the audience that all of the zombies used to be people too.
The Walking Dead will air “Still” on Sunday, March 2, on AMC. You can check out last night’s “most talked about” scene below.
