With the series set to return for the second-half of its tenth season Sunday, February 23, AMC's The Walking Dead left us with a whole bunch of cliffhangers to tide our brains over during the holiday break.
We have… dead Siddiq (Avi Nash) triggering a whole bunch of paranoia and anger amonge the community members.
We have… Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who looks to make nice-nice with Alpha (Samantha Morton) and get a mask – and more.
We have… Michonne and Virgil (Kevin Carroll), heading out to a base to secure weapons – with a vibe that just doesn't feel right.
We have… Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Connie (Lauren Ridloff), Kelly (Angel Theory), Magna (Nadia Hilker), and Jerry (Cooper Andrews) trapped in a walker-filled cave – a trap that Alpha set and Carol (it could be argued) lead them into while going after The Whisperers leader.
Did we mention "The Whisperer War" hasn't even gotten fully underway yet… and Maggie's (Lauren Cohan) coming back… and Michonne's leaving?
So with that huge stage set, the cast and creators of The Walking Dead offer an inside look on what's still to come:
Here's a look back at a teaser that finds our heroes not just fighting for revenge.
More than ever, they're fighting for their futures…
When AMC's The Walking Dead returns for its second-half of season 10, our group of survivors are trapped… some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers… others, in a spiral of suspicion and grief — all orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching and one step ahead of the communities. Through this conflict and all they've lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.
But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whispers once and for all. Otherwise, Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.
"The Walking Dead" Season 10a 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, 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 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.
