Lauren Cohan Returns as Maggie in The Walking Dead Season 10 Preview

When AMC's The Walking Dead announced that Lauren Cohan's Maggie was returning to the long-running series, speculation began about how she would be brought back. Of course, some at the show wanted us to believe that we wouldn't see her until at least the eleventh season. Thankfully, we know that they tend to (and we mean this with all the love in our heart) lie to us but it's for our own storyline good so it's okay. Exactly like they did this time, because Maggie is returning when the series' tenth season finale airs some time later this year.

Of course, why should we be wasting any more of your time when you can check out our first look at Maggie's return when AMC's The Walking Dead airs the tenth season finale. In the scene, we see that Carol's (Melissa McBride) letter made it to Maggie's eyes, and now we're really curious. Will Maggie be the one who turns the tide of the war aginst Beta (Ryan Hurst) and the Whisperers to our heroes side once and for all? Check out the clip below for some potential answers:

"The Walking Dead" Season 10 Reviews

We were impressed with how season opener "Lines We Crossed" was able to pick up the energy from last season, right out of the gate (check out our review here). Then we had Morton, Hurst, and Birch raising the bar even higher with "We Are the End of the World" (check out our review here), offering up some Whisperers backstory.

"Ghosts" elevated the paranoia as McBride continues delivering an award-winning performance (that review's here) – while "Silence the Whisperers" proved once again why it's "In Cudlitz, We Trust" (review here). "What It Always Is" had a now-free Negan beginning his redemption arc while Alpha raised the stakes against our survivors (review here). "Bonds" had Negan being tested, Carol and Daryl possibly making matters worse for the community by "picking up" a Whisperer, and Eugene reaching out and getting a response.

"Open Your Eyes" (review here) saw our theory about Siddiq (Avi Nash) completely, totally, and tragically put to rest. That brought us to midseason finale "The World Before" (reviewed here), as the drumbeats of war grew louder. After a mideason break, we learned that those drumbeats had turned into thunder, as "Squeeze" (review here) and "Stalker" (review here) turned up the heat on what was once a stealth "cold war" back-n-forth between Alpha and our heroes.

Then with "Morning Star" (review here), that heat caught literal fire and resulted in the entire direction of the war getting flipped on its end in "Walk With Us" (review here). What could top that, and cause a break in the action? That would be "What We Become" (review here), with Danai Gurira's final run as Michonne, or is it? "Look at the Flowers" brought the focus back to the frontlines as we learned more about the Negan/Carol team-up, witnessed Beta go even deeper off the deep end, watched Carol's final confrontation with "Alpha" and introduced to a very "smiley" series game-changer (review here).
