See What The Walking Dead Has In Store Next Week In These Promos

fb share tweet share

Thus far, the young season 5 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead has been, not necessarily a nice surprise—the final 8 episodes of season 4 were the strongest of the series, so I was hoping for high quality—but a solid showing. The action-heavy season premiere, “No Sanctuary,” was a hell of an attention grabber, and they followed that up with last night’s quieter, more pensive episode, “Strangers.” This introduced a new character—Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam), who fans of the comics know well—and a nasty group of new survivors, all building up to what is sure to be a vicious, nasty time on the show. We’ve got a promo and new clip from next week’s episode, “Four Walls and a Roof,” and some additional looks at “Strangers.”

In “Strangers,” the group of survivors, recently reunited after the mayhem at the prison and Terminus, encounter Father Gabriel, and while they’re more than glad to take refuge under his roof, they’re not about to trust him yet. He’s obviously hiding something, they just don’t know what, and how dangerous. Is he alone, does he have friends, does he know who is watching them? There are a lot of questions to be answered, and they’ll be keeping an eye on their new friend, as you can see in the promo tacked on to last night’s chapter.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Strangers Carves Off A Significant Chunk

Despite having drastic ups and downs over the course of the series, the last half of season 4 of AMC’s The Walking Dead was, by far, the best run in the series, giving me hope, guarded as it was, going into season 5. And thus far the young season hasn’t let me down. After starting with last week’s high-paced, action-centric season premiere, “No Sanctuary,” the massively popular zombie drama returns with “Strangers,” a quiet, moody, contemplative episode that continues to ratchet up the tension and build towards something even bigger.

If you haven’t watched the episode, stop reading now, because we’re going to talk about it, in depth, and this will include a great many SPOILERS.

This Walking Dead Star Helped Take Down A Child Sex Trafficking Ring, Learn How Here

AndreaIt’s no secret that we hated the character Andrea on AMC’s The Walking Dead, which is too bad, because in the comics that serve as the source material, she’s consistently been one of the best characters for years. They fucked her up royally on the hit zombie drama, and many of us were glad when they killed her off at the end of season 3. Fortunately for the world, however, it appears actress Laurie Holden took the spirit of her character from the comics to heart (rather than her TV counterpart), and became a total badass. How badass you ask? She helped take down a Colombian child sex trafficking ring, and credits The Walking Dead with an assist.

Apparently Columbia has a huge problem with children being sold into sex slavery, with child prostitutes as young as 11-years-old being bought and traded. One report says the South American nation “often seen by pedophiles as a vacation destination for underage sex.” That’s not a particularly good thing to be known for if you ask us.

The Walking Dead Cast This American Horror Story Actress For Season 5

Alexandra BreckinridgeSeason 5 of AMC’s runaway horror hit The Walking Dead is finally back, and just in time for Halloween no less, and fans have a lot to look forward to. After an action-packed season premiere with “No Sanctuary,” there are a number of storylines to explore and new characters to get to know. And that last category just grew by one more new face as the series has cast American Horror Story actress Alexandra Breckinridge in what is being called an important, though largely mysterious role.

THR reports that Breckinridge, who also appeared in Save Me and Family Guy, among others titles, will have a recurring role in season 5 of the zombie drama. We imagine, at this stage of the game, she won’t pop up until later in the season, most likely after the show returns from its annual mid-season hiatus. She could also be promoted to series regular moving into the already-approved season 6 if the story works out like that.

the-walking-dead-season-5-ten-new-photosIf you watched the season 5 premiere of AMC’s mega hit The Walking Dead, you probably noticed a heavy emphasis on the action. It’s not necessarily one long action scene, but it’s definitely approaching that territory. This is easily the biggest, most ambitious, sprawling sequence that they’ve ever attempted, including the scenes at Woodbury in season 3 and the battle at the prison in season 4. Now you can see how they how they went about setting it up.

Special effects guru Greg Nicotero, who also happened to helm the season debut, “No Sanctuary,” shared his extensive set of storyboards with Entertainment Weekly. The scene may look chaotic and jumbled on screen, but these pieces give you an idea of just how much planning and work went into crafting this episode. You can’t just step outside with a camera and some zombie extras and wing something like this, you have to do a lot of preparation to stage this big and intricate a scene.
