The Walking Dead S11E05 Preview: Judith's Willing to Go "Pulp Fiction"

So our previous previews for "Out of the Ashes" have focused on Princess (Paola Lázaro), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). In each one, viewers were offered a glimpse into what's ahead for them when AMC's The Walking Dead returns Sunday night. But this time around, we're checking back in with Alexandria to see how things are going. Yeah, they're not going well. Aaron's (Ross Marquand) worst fears become a reality, requiring our survivors to train to fight for their very existence one more time. And that means Judith (Cailey Fleming) stepping up to train the children on how to survive- including Anabelle Holloway's Gracie, Kien Michael Spiller's Hershel, and Antony Azor's RJ. But when a group of teens decides to bully Judith and make things personal, they learn pretty quickly why no one with the name "Grimes" should ever be messed with. Especially in this case, when someone makes the mistake of bringing up Michonne…

Here's a look at the preview that will ignite the rage within millions of Judith fans (like us)- and if you have flashbacks to Samuel L. Jackson ("Say what again?") and Bruce Willis (the sword move) from Pulp Fiction, you're not alone:

Here's a look back at the Commonwealth-focused sneak preview for "Out of the Ashes," premiering this Sunday night on AMC:

Now here's a look back at the episode promo, followed by a look at the episode overview and the Negan & Maggie-focused preview released earlier this week:

The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 5 "Out of the Ashes": Alexandrians encounter Hilltop squatters; Eugene's group undergoes orientation at the Commonwealth. Directed by Greg Nicotero and written by LaToya Morgan.

Here's a look at the epic first trailer for the return of The Walking Dead that was released during Comic-Con@Home (make sure to stay through to the very end)- and if you think the Reapers look like a different and very dangerous group? That's because they are…

AMC also released four mini-teasers for the long-running series' final run, with "Survivor", "Outnumbered", "Guarded", and "Threatened" offering a greater sense of just how different our heroes' world is about to become:

Previously on "The Walking Dead," our survivors confronted past demons and combated new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering from the mounting collateral damage that is the apocalypse. Alexandria is severely compromised, left a former shell of the home it once was from the carnage and devastation left behind by the Whisperers.

Now all who live in Alexandria struggle to refortify it and feed its increasing number of residents, which include the survivors from the fall of the Kingdom and the burning of Hilltop; along with Maggie and her new group, the Wardens. Alexandria has more people than it can manage to feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events and self-preservation rises to the surface within the ravaged walls.

They must secure more food while they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses like countless other communities they have come across throughout the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever before, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to safeguard the lives of their children, even if it means losing their own. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to those at Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unforthcoming group.
