Christian Serratos Joins The Walking Dead, What Her Role Says About The Direction Of The Show

fb share tweet share

Christian SerratosA while back, we heard reports out of The Walking Dead camp that the AMC production was casting for three new characters that would pop up in the middle of the upcoming fourth season. On the call sheet they were referred to by different names, but fans of Robert Kirkman’s comic books, which serve as the inspiration for the hit zombie drama, recognized the descriptions. Now the first one of these roles has been filled, and with it, we get confirmation of our suspicions.

Despite going by John Tyler, Wayne Kesey, and Jordana Barraza, these parts were clearly Abraham Ford, Eugene Porter, and Rosita Espinosa from the comics. Deadline reports that Christian Serratos, most known for her turn around the Twilight films, has been cast in one of these three roles, and wouldn’t you know, her character’s name is Rosita Espinosa. Rosita is set to be a recurring character in season four, beginning around the tenth episode, after the mid-season break. She’ll have an option to return as a regular cast member the following season.

5 Things The Walking Dead Season 5 Needs To Do Over The Next 8 Episodes

fb share tweet share

Walking DeadSeason 5 of The Walking Dead is about to return from a long winter’s nap for the back eight episodes of what may be the strongest season yet for AMC’s hit zombie drama. While it is a different world from a couple of years ago (I was so frustrated with season 3 that I almost stopped watching), there is still room for improvement, and some things the series needs to do to maintain the momentum they’ve built and deliver a satisfying conclusion.

The way The Walking Dead stages things, each half of a season, while connected to the overall narrative, serves as a kind of soft reboot, a separate arc—this seems to stem from the episodic nature of Robert Kirkman’s comics that serve as the source material. The rest of season 5 looks to follow this trend, and in that spirit, here are some of the things we want to see Rick and the rest of the survivors do and experience throughout the rest of the season.

This Week’s Walking Dead Was Almost Censored, We Try To Figure Out Why

fb share tweet share

AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is known for being brutal and violent and, especially for a show on basic cable, startlingly gory at times. Still, as vicious as the show can be, and as it continues to push boundaries, that doesn’t mean it can get away with anything, and the most recent episode of season 5, “Self Help,” or at least part of it, was almost censored.

Just a heads up, if you haven’t watched “Self Help” yet, we’re going to get into some major SPOILERS. So if you haven’t watched, and you actually care, stop reading, because if you complain about it later we’re just going to smack our heads into the wall.

The Walking Dead: Watch Carol Get Grim In This Clip For Next Week’s Episode

fb share tweet share

After the biggest stumble they’ve had in some time with “Slabtown,” The Walking Dead righted the ship with last night’s “Self Help,” which showcases some characters that have been woefully underutilized until now—Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita (Christian Serratos), and Eugene (Josh McDermitt). Now we’ve got our first look at the next installment, “Consumed,” as well as some behind the scenes looks at “Self Help.”

“Slabtown” caught us up with Beth (Emily Kinney), who had been missing in action since season 4, and it looks like “Consumed” is going to show Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) and their efforts to track her down. Out for an evening stroll a couple episodes back, they saw a car with a white cross painted in the window, like the one that took Beth, and gave chase.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Self Help Drops A Giant Bomb And Mullet Jokes

fb share tweet share

Last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Slabtown,” wasn’t great, and is the weakest episode of the series since the middle of season 4. But luckily, it was just a slight speed bump, as the hit zombie drama returned to its recent form with the fifth episode of season 5, “Self Help.” As the core group has broken up again, they’re sticking with the narrative structure where each episode follows one splinter, and this installment sheds some light on members of the cast who, though they’ve been present, haven’t had much to do.

It should go without saying that there are spoilers coming, but I’ll say it anyway, there are spoilers coming.

Watch The Walking Dead Finally Give These Oft-Ignored Characters Something To Do

fb share tweet share

Last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Slabtown,” was a bit of a disappointment. Still better than many installments of previous seasons, it’s by far the biggest misstep in the last ten or eleven episodes dating back to the middle of last season. Hopefully season 5 of AMC’s hit zombie drama will get back on track this week with “Self Help,” and this new promo from New Zealand gives you an idea of what to expect.

Since returning from its midseason hiatus last year, The Walking Dead has taken a different narrative approach than it had before. The core group was broken up into factions, which allowed the writers to spend entire episodes with these various splinters, really digging into each story arc and providing room for much more character development. It also adds a layer of tension, just as the characters don’t know what is happening with everyone else, even if they’re alive, neither do you. It is an effective way to drive story forward and create a stronger connection between viewer and show. And it looks like that’s a strategy they’re employing again.
