"The Walking Dead" Season 10: All Roads Lead to "The Tower" [PREVIEW]

AMC's The Walking Dead is back this Sunday with "The Tower," now serving as the unofficial tenth season finale after post-production on the real season finale was shuttered over coronavirus concerns). While this may not be the season-ender showrunner Angela Kang and her team wanted, its not expected to disappoint as a proper season finale in its own right.

After one of the best character intros in the show's run, "Princess" (Paola Lazaro) gets to spend some "quality time" with Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Ezekiel (Khary Payton) – only to be interrupted in a most unpleasant manner.

Meanwhile, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) decides to come clean to Lydia (Cassady McClincy) about killing her mother. Of course, we're also wondering if  Judith (Cailey Fleming) is going to tell Daryl (Norman Reedus) about Michonne's (Danai Gurira) reason for not coming back.

Then there's Beta (Ryan Hurst), who went Phantom of the Opera to "bond" with Alpha (Samantha Morton) and plans on going"scorched earth" to rid himself of our heros once and for all.

Here's a look at preview images for this Sunday's "The Tower" – which we're willing to bet an internal organ on will end with a huge cliffhanger that "A Certain Doom" will have to resolve later this year (wow, this is all going to feel really weird):

"The Walking Dead" season 10, episode 15 "The Tower": The communities prep for final battle of the Whisperer War, while Eugene's group meets Princess.

"The Walking Dead" Season 10 Reviews

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, 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 fire… literally – only to see the entire direction of the war get 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).
