"The Walking Dead": Deck The Halls with Walker Entrails! A "TWD" Take on "A Christmas Carol" [VIDEO]
Even with the cast and crew of AMC's The Walking Dead having wrapped work on the tenth season, life in the franchise's universe has become a lot like the NFL: neither have off-seasons anymore. With a strong ensemble cast (and a "Big Bad" fronted by Samantha Morton in an award-earning turn as Whisperers leader Alpha) and richly layered writing, showrunner/executive producer Angela Kang did the near-impossible: made the show fresh and dangerous again – and we're only halfway through the season.
And we haven't even mentioned Fear the Walking Dead season 6 casting news, the upcoming premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and the upcoming Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) films.
But there will be time for more burning speculation when the new year rolls around – for now? It's the holidays, which means everyone gets to take a (brief) breather – but before they shuffled off to their not-long-enough winter naps, our friends at AMC's long running series are showing us how the magic of editing can easily turn The Walking Dead into A Christmas Carol.
Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as Scrooge? Michonne (Danai Gurira) as Bob Cratchit? And those aren't even the most inspired choices…check it out below:
We didn't mince words over how impressed we were with season opener "Lines We Crossed" (check out our review here). Then we had Morton, Ryan Hurst, and Thora 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 Melissa McBride continues delivering an award-winning performance (that review's here) – while "Silence the Whisperers" proved once again why it's "In Michael Cudlitz, We Trust" (review here).
"What It Always Is" had a now-free Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) beginning his redemption arc (???) while Alpha raised the stakes against our survivors (review here).
"Bonds" had Negan being tested, Carol (McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) possibly making matters worse for the community by "picking up" a Whisperer, and Eugene (Josh McDermitt) 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.
