The Walking Dead: Five Things The Show Needs To Do When It Returns

AMC’s zombie hit The Walking Dead is shuffling towards us. After a months-long mid-season hiatus, the ratings juggernaut returns with new episodes on Sunday, February 9. While the fourth season has, overall, been the most consistent outing so far in the franchise, it’s been far from perfect. There has been progress in a number of areas, but moving into the second half of the season, there are a few things we’d like to see, or not see as the case may be, to ensure that the show maintains this upward trajectory.

Nothing in the first eight episodes was quite as tedious and drawn out as the flu storyline. One of The Walking Dead’s biggest issues throughout the series has been the show’s steadfast refusal to move on when a storyline has run its course. Seasons two and three were mired in this problem, containing multiple episodes that were little more than filler. So far season four has so far avoided falling completely into that trap—melodramatic as they’ve been, most episodes at the very least advance the story—but this aside teetered dangerously on that lip, and felt like a way to kill time and take up space.

Walkers, Clones, And Cosmos: What To Look Forward To In Spring Sci-Fi TV

WDeadThe Walking Dead (AMC, Feb. 9)
When AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its fourth season, the series may be in as good a spot as it’s ever been. The first portion of the year wasn’t spectacular, but with the exception of those standalone Governor episodes, and the flu story that went on for far too long, it’s been solid, and more importantly consistent.

After the kerfuffle at the prison left the group beaten, bloody, splintered, and down a few key members, The Walking Dead is poised to get into some meaty storylines. From the addition of new cast members, as well as what producers have said, it looks like we’re going to be following the arc from Robert Kirkman’s comics as close as we ever have. Scattered to the wind as they are, each splinter of survivors will have their own weight to bear. Carl (Chandler Riggs) is going to have to take care of his father Rick (Andrew Lincoln), who is in even worse shape, mentally and physically, than usual. I really, really, really hope they stay away from the whole dead wife on the phone thing from the comics. They tried that, and it failed miserably. Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Beth (Emily Kinney) gave to cope with not only the loss of their father, but watching him get beheaded. We’ll see if Glenn (Steven Yeun) can help, or if he’ll fall to pieces, too. Michonne (Danai Gurira), well, it looks like she’s going to be alone, again, hacking zombies apart with her katana, you know, the usual.

The Walking Dead Sneak Peek Features Carl Going For A Walk

fb share tweet share

In about a week and a half, after Super Bowl XLVIII, The Walking Dead returns with its season four mid-season premiere. The next episode, “After,” features the group in shambles after the epic showdown between The Governor and the survivors. During the final battle the prison was lost, but its residents live on, only separated from each other. It’s only a matter of time before they come back together, but for the time being, the show will offer up a few episodes following Rick, Carl, Daryl, Michonne, and the rest all on their own to fend for themselves.

While The Walking Dead builds to its mid-season premiere, AMC released a new sneak peek through SpoilerTV, which features Carl coming across two zombies. While it’s unclear why he’s leading two zombies away from a house, it’s likely that he’s doing it to keep the area clear so he can watch over Rick as he recovers from his injuries. From what we’ve see, it looks like Carl will play a larger role in the back half of season four, he might also get his own stand-alone episode.

The Walking Dead Escape Obstacle Course May Soon Attack A City Near You

fb share tweet share

the walking dead escapeThere are undoubtedly going to be people out there who will be devastated when The Walking Dead‘s fourth season comes to a close on March 30. If those people happen to live in one of a handful of U.S. cities, they won’t have to wait long to get right back into the zombie-dodging action, as the massive “Walking Dead Escape” obstacle course event is going on a nationwide tour starting in April. Who said exercise had to be boring and completely free of blood and gore?

The project, which is put on by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint, was conceived for the 2012 Comic-Con and turned San Diego’s Petco Park into a post-apocalyptic nightmare. Last year, the Escape was set up in three different cities, and now it’s headed to at least eight different cities, which will comprise the first leg of the tour, as sponsored by monster-truck rally Monster X Tour.

Walking Dead Gets A New Trailer, Plus Robert Kirkman On Keeping The Comic & Show Separate

“Don’t Look Back.” In about two weeks, The Walking Dead will return to wrap up the last eight episodes of season four. While the first half of the season took a long time to find its footing, it seems like the series’ new showrunner Scott Gimple found his stride with an explosive mid-season finale. Now AMC has released a new teaser trailer that highlights some of the episode’s action and drama.

The new teaser features the group in separate locations after the prison walls fell in the attack by the Governor. Rick and Carl are alone and fending for themselves, while Daryl, Michonne, and Tyreese are trying to find the rest of the group. It also seems that the two kids who killed one of the Governor’s group are on their own, with Beth most likely with baby Judith Grimes. Rest assured that “After” will feature a lot of zombie attacks.
