If you ever needed a more perfect example of a situation going from bad to very, very worse, it would the situation that Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and the rest of our survivors find themselves in heading into this weekend's episode of AMC's The Walking Dead, "Hunted." Basically, because that's what they're about to become, as the broken & battered group has run head-first into the buzzsaw that is the Reapers. And let's just say they don't look to be big talkers- they vibe more like a "final boss battle" for our folks before the Commonwealth. And if you thought the first two episodes vibed "horror movie" (check out our review here), just wait until you check out the following Maggie-focused look at what's to come.
Here's a look at a sneak preview for this Sunday's episode "Hunted", with The Walking Dead returning to AMC this Sunday night:
The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 3 "Hunted": Maggie's mission team gets separated and hunted by the Reapers; Carol, Rosita, Magna and Kelly attempt to catch horses for Alexandria; Judith, RJ, Hershel and Gracie cope with their parents going away. Directed by Frederick E.O. Toye and written by Vivian Tse.
And here's a look back at Sunday night's episode, when Maggie's decision sealed Gage's (Jackson Pace) fate:
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…
Now here's a look at The Walking Dead: The Final Season Trilogy, with Part One currently underway; with Parts Two & Three set to be unleashed in 2022:
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.
