MichonneWhile the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead wasn’t the action-packed thrill ride we were all expecting, the episode managed to do something better, something fans and casual viewers of the AMC zombie series wanted from The Walking Dead for so long. The episode served up depth and rich character moments, and the episode’s writer, Robert Kirkman, also managed to reach these goals with two characters instead of one. Now AMC has released promos and a few sneak-peek videos for The Walking Dead‘s episode 410, “Inmates,” as well as a couple of making-of documentaries for its mid-season premiere, “After.”

SPOILERS FOR THE WALKING DEAD BELOW!

The Walking Dead Post-Game: After

fb share tweet share

When we last saw our intrepid group of zombie apocalypse survivors on AMC’s The Walking Dead, they were, well, they were screwed, quite frankly. Their prison stronghold had just been violated, one of their own had brutally murdered in front of them, and in order to escape, they broke into smaller splinters and vanished into the surrounding countryside. That’s where we left them after the mid-season finale, up shit creek, and fans were left to wonder what would become of them. And tonight’s midseason premiere, “After,” catches us up, with some of the crew at least.

the-walking-dead-after-mid-season-premiere-carl-rickDon’t keep reading if you haven’t already watched tonight’s episode, it’ll just ruin things for you.

Wisely, at least in my opinion, “After,”—scripted by comic creator Robert Kirkmam and directed by special effects guru Greg Nicotero—doesn’t try to check in with everyone. That would be too much for a single episode, and wouldn’t provide enough space to really dig into anyone’s situation. Instead, “After” really belongs to Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Carl (Chandler Riggs).

One Last Walking Dead Midseason Return Promo Shows A Mad World

We’re only a few hours away from the return of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. That may not sound like much time, but what the hell, with the onslaught of promotional material that the network has thrown at us in the few months since the show went on a mid season hiatus, why not cram in one last short preview, and one last grim picture. If nothing else, it may whet your appetite for tonight’s episode, “After.”

This video definitely emphasizes the dour way the last episode, “Too Far Gone,” wrapped up. Things are not looking particularly rosy for the survivors. One beloved character met his end in an exceedingly brutal and gruesome way, the prison stronghold they’d been calling home lays in smoldering ruins, and the group has been splintered.

The Walking Dead Shambles Back For More: Today In Science & Science Fiction

Wdead6AMC’s perpetually uneven zombie drama The Walking Dead returns tonight, and I can’t help but wonder which show we’ll get. Will it be the occasionally brilliant show on display in the mid-season finale or in episodes like “Clear”? Will we get genuine shocks and twists, or will the show spin its wheels on things like flu outbreaks or babysitting with the Governor? Between the deaths, the loss of the prison, and the dissolution of Rick’s core group of survivors, the status quo has certainly been shaken up. We know Rick and Carl are on their own, at least for a while, and as for the rest? Time will tell.

There are new characters to be introduced, new story arcs being adapted from Robert Kirkman’s comics, and presumably lots more clever zombie kills. I very much hope the show carries its momentum from the mid-season finale and serves up a solid run of episodes to round out the fourth season. And if not, hey, there’s always that spinoff that’s in the works…

The Walking Dead returns to AMC tonight at 8/7c, in an episode entitled “After”

Rick deals with old wounds while members of the prison try accept their new environment.

Robert Kirkman Dishes On The New Walking Dead Characters

abrahamAfter a two-month hiatus, The Walking Dead will return with new episodes tomorrow night. Wrapping up season four and setting up season five will not be an easy thing to do. There are still some burning questions out there that the series’ writers have yet to answer, such as who fed the zombies rats at the prison fences, what was the mysterious message on the radio, will Tyreese discover that Carol killed his beloved Karen, and what really happened to baby Judith Grimes? Before the season four premiere back in October 2013, Robert Kirkman teased the addition of three new characters Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene from the widely popular comic book series to the TV series.

The Walking Dead Serves Up Seven More New Photos

The Walking DeadIt does not look like it’s going to be a good time when AMC’s The Walking Dead returns on February 9. Scratch that, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a good time for the characters on the show. From the appearance of these seven new images just released to hype the second half of season four, fans of the highly-rated zombie drama may in fact be in for a very good time. Or at least in for lots of excitement, tons of tension, and their favorite characters in all manner of precarious positions.

These pictures, unveiled by Entertainment Weekly, pick up the group in the wake of the midseason finale, “Too Far Gone,” after the group of survivors have been forced to flee the relative safety of their prison stronghold. We knew they were in for a rough go of it, scattered as they are, but these new images give you an idea of just how grim things have gotten.
