Even though this week's episode of AMC's The Walking Dead isn't the official season finale, you wouldn't be able to tell from the previews for "The Tower." Paola Lazaro's Princess looks to impress Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Ezekiel (Khary Payton) but we're not so sure it's going well. Meanwhile, Beta (Ryan Hurst) is taking his horde straight through the gates of Alexandria while Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) braces for his one-on-one with Lydia (Cassady McClincy) over her mother's death.
In the following preview for Sunday night's "The Tower," our focus turns to Judith (Cailey Fleming) and Daryl (Norman Reedus), who are probably the best one-two butt-kicking combo in the Walking Dead universe. Keeping her promise to her now-on-a-mission mom Michonne (Danai Gurira) to listen to Daryl, Judith makes a request that will continue her journey as a Grimes:
"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).
