Walking Dead Images Introduce Eugene And Show Michonne And Carl At Ease

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadAt the very end of last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Inmates,” the hit zombie drama gave us our first onscreen look at some highly-anticipated new characters. Fans of Robert Kirkman’s comics have been waiting for the arrival of Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), and Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt) since we first heard they were on their way. In anticipation of tomorrow’s episode, “Claimed,” AMC has released some new photos. The other day we got our first good look at Rosita, and these pics give us a closer look at McDermitt’s Eugene, as well as some other, more familiar folks.

“Inmates” doesn’t do much aside from show us the new additions, but this week promises to give us a proper introduction. Eugene may have gross, greasy mullet, but that rough exterior hides something much deeper and more cunning. I won’t go into the details from the comics, but, if the show sticks close to the source material, he should be an interesting character to watch. In any way, all three will have a huge impact on the narrative moving forward.

The Walking Dead First Look At Rosita Espinosa

At the end of last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Inmates,” Glenn and Tara (Alanna Masterson) found a little help against zombies with the appearance of Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Eugene Porter. In this Sunday’s episode, “Claimed,” the new trio will continue to help Glenn and Tara survive, as the group is separated in the wilderness. While it’s unclear if Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene would be regulars on the TV show, its good to have new blood on the very popular AMC series.

From ScreenCrush.com, we’re getting a first look at the character Rosita Espinosa, played by Christian Serratos, in this Sunday’s episode. In the comic book, Rosita Espinosa is “kind, gentle, and [an] understanding woman, and has avoided confrontation or violence with the group,” but in the image below, she looks like she’s ready for action with her twin pistols at her side. It’s good to see that there’s time for sex appeal during the zombie apocalypse. It’s hard to say if the appearance of Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene will be exactly the same as it was in the comic book, but it’s likely that the trio will provide some high drama before the group is re-united again for the season finale of season four.

The Walking Dead Reveals Its Awesome Toy Line For 2014

fb share tweet share

walking dead rick grimes statueMan, did you guys see last week’s episode of The Walking Dead? When Rick went absolutely nuts and decapitated everyone before forming an acoustic rock band with stacks of heads as his backing musicians? Okay, so maybe I’m lying about that, but I’m definitely not kidding about all the awesome Walking Dead toys that were revealed at this past weekend’s Toy Fair in New York City. If you’re into playing with things, looking at things, or watching DVDs, this collection from McFarlane Toys and others is sure to knock your gore-covered socks off.

Above you’ll see the limited-edition statue of Rick Grimes (the comic version) putting three walkers out of their misery, or at least out of Rick’s misery. This is the unpainted and unfinished version, but it still looks extremely badass as is. The base will rotate in a full circle when it’s completed, and they’ll be producing less than 1,000 of these bad boys for a release at some point near the end of this year.

Michael Cudlitz Spills His Guts About The Walking Dead

The Walking DeadDon’t read this if you haven’t watched the most recent episode of The Walking Dead. You have been warned.

As a whole, “Inmates,” last Sunday’s installment of The Walking Dead on AMC, was an up and down affair. Segmented as it was, some pieces worked much better than others. What this episode did do was throw in some elements that are going to have a huge impact on the landscape and dynamic of the series for a long time to come. Carol (Melissa McBride) is back, baby Judith Grimes is still alive, and Tara (Alanna Masterson) is involved in the story once again, at least for the time being. But those aren’t the only surprises. We’ve been expecting them since before season four kicked off, but the very end of “Inmates” introduced, briefly, three new characters: Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita Epsinosa (Christian Serratos), and Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), three key characters from the comics. This is obviously a big move, and Cudlitz recently opened up about his character and the changes we can expect.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Southland star discussed how he came by his latest role, how similar the TV versions will be to their two-dimensional counterparts, and how their presence will change the preexisting dynamic of the series.

The Walking Dead Teasers Introduce New Characters

fb share tweet share


Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was more on the slow side of the zombie apocalypse than anything else. While “Inmates” was consistent with character moments, it seemed like a “filler” episode. Although 99% of “Inmates” landed with a whimper, the last 1% teased new characters and what’s to come with the last six episodes of the season.

In the comic book series, Abraham Ford is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Before the zombie outbreak, Abraham lived in Houston, Texas and was a sports coach. He had an ex-wife and an eight-year-old son, but lost his family. In the teaser above, we also meet Dr. Eugene Porter, a doctor who claimed to know what caused the zombie epidemic, and Rosita Espinosa, a woman with whom Abraham later develops a romantic relationship. The trio are on their way to Washington D.C. before meeting up with Rick and the group.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Inmates

fb share tweet share

Last week’s mid-season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead focused on a limited number of zombie apocalypse survivors. We saw what became of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), and Michonne (Danai Gurira), but the episode left you hanging when it came to everyone else. Personally, I thought this was a good move, as it allowed time to really dig into those three. This week’s offering, “Inmates,” catches us up with the rest of the gang. What have they been up to? Read on to find out, but beware, for there be spoilers.

The Walking DeadThe structure of “Inmates” is simple. Each segment of the show checks in with a different splinter of the leftovers of the group in the wake of the disaster at the prison. When you come back from a commercial break, you get the chance to hang out with someone else. You get why they play it like this, to bring everyone up to speed, but at the same time that you get to see how everyone is doing, you don’t get to spend much time with any of them.
