As promised, AMC's The Walking Dead is back with a second set of Zoom background images to help you personalize your work-at-home experience (and lower the "cabin fever" levels). Now, we all know that the Walking Dead universe does not exist on Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) alone so this round spreads the love out to other familiar faces. Want to be the peacemaker between Morgan (Lennie James) and Rick? How about contemplating the future with Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus), or join Carol in appreciating her knife? You could go hunting with Daryl, assess the carnage with Michonne (Danai Gurira), and be welcomed by King Ezekiel (Khary Payton). There's also a background highlighting a walker as well as several views of the communities, as you'll see for yourselves below.
In the preview for the season finale posted below, Carol's (Melissa McBride) letter clearly made it to Maggie (Lauren Cohan) but will her return be the tipping point that turns the tide against Beta (Ryan Hurst) and the Whisperers once and for all? Series showrunner and executive producer Angela Kang wouldn't reveal too much about Maggie's return, but she did promise that viewers will learn more about her life since she left and that her return will have a permanent impact on our survivors.
"We'll see some more of the new characters as they're featured this season, and we will see more of the epic conflict we've been witnessing all season with the survivors and the Whisperers. And we'll see that Maggie is…. We'll know what's happened with her and what that means for our group. And our people are obviously on this collision course with the Whisperer horde. We will see Beta doing his thing as the leader of the Whisperers, hell bent on his revenge. Obviously, it's not been that long in the timeline since Michonne said 'I'm going to go off and try to find your father,' and she's obviously not back. We'll see how Judith's dealing with that. There's Darryl and Negan, and Lydia, and Carol, and things with various groupings coming to a head. And we'll see more from the person in the iron mask with the weapons that come upon Alden and Aaron that we'll see in sneak peeks and everything. I think it's a really cool episode. Greg Nicotero did an amazing job directing it. The actors turn in beautiful performances. The writers did amazing work and the crew. I think it'll be a really satisfying episode."
