So now that the penultimate episode of long-running AMC series The Walking Dead's ninth season "The Calm Before" has wrapped… wow! After a season that at our kindest could beest be described as an emotional rollercoaster – and with a righteous amount of well-deserved credit to Angela Kang and her team for breathing new life into the series both in front of and behind the camera – we were delivered a one-two punch to our hearts and heads over the past two weeks.
Here's a first-look preview for next week's season finale "The Storm." where Carol struggles to accept Lydia after all that's happened:
The Walking Dead s09e16 "The Storm": In the aftermath of an overwhelming loss, the communities must brave a ferocious blizzard; as one group deals with an enemy from within, another is forced to make a life or death decision.
Here's that tragic reminder from this week's episode "The Calm Before:…
The second half of "The Walking Dead" Season 9 finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves.
What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group's rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it's unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth.
