The Walking Dead returns for 9b finally! The season really had good momentum despite the losses that the show had. Losing Rick from the show, but will be in movies, Maggie for now, or forever? We still aren’t quite sure about Maggie’s status, and of course Jesus is now gone after getting murdered by the Whispers. As the season is about to begin the news is centered around the fact that in season 10 the Michonne character will be leaving the show. The talks going around is that the Michonne character will be alive and will be signed on for 3 movies for the AMC network, much like the Rick Grimes character. That doesn’t necessarily mean the two characters will be linked.
But before all that we look forward to season 9, the group as we know it have to figure out how to get along, not only that they have to figure out how to overcome the newest threat in the Whisperers. For those who had AMC premiere they were able to watch the episode last week. I do not, and wasn’t able to watch it, but I did see a sneak peak of the scene, the image above with Michonne is the clip. Which I really did enjoy, I can say it seems like the group we know actually has come up with a great full proof plan(for once!) Maybe not having Rick make all the plans is actually a good thing!
In the preview we see the bridge with the covered area, Daryl is at one end the walkers are coming after Daryl. Daryl shoots one in the leg and it’s a walker so nothing happens, Daryl shoots another in the leg, and it’s a person who screams out loud! The actual walkers pounce to eat him, two ‘walkers’ are in a group behind and slowly try to turn around the other direction. A couple people run to be next to Daryl, while Michonne appears at the other entrance of the bridge. One ‘walker’ sees Michonne with the sword and grabs a knife and rushes at Michonne like a moron and gets killed instantly. The other one sees she is cornered and gives up, in another preview we know this to be Alpha’s daughter. It seems Daryl and Alpha’s daughter will have a lot of interaction going forward.
I’m anxious to see how everyone else has woken up following the new threat.
I’m equal parts excited as hell and verklempt at the prospect of losing Michone. That’s a big hole in the middle of our WD lineup now, with Carl, Rick and now Michone gone from us. Not to mention Jesus and the what of Maggie’s whereabouts.
Imma go glass half full entering tonight’s 9B premiere.
Yes the show is just losing people like crazy. I’m nervous about them building up new people. I do like Magna and Yumiko, and Judith has been strong in her limited time.
I did enjoy the episode, I live tweet on our account so I always have to watch it a second or third time as I know I miss things but so far I liked it. What are your thoughts?
You are on Twitter? Me too. Just started one up for the blog.
I enjoyed the episode very much. I do love what they did with Negan. His purpose gone, the what next? And his scenes with Judith were my favorites.
The Whisperers add a Rob Zombie (pun intended) dynamic to this, which I dig very much as well.
Yes! We have a twitter for our blog
I also have a personal one, but I talk more about Halsey and try to win contests hahaha @jpgarfunkle
For Walking Dead I do live tweet session during the west coast feed.
Negan and Judith have a great natural connection, I’m not sure if you saw Talking Dead the way that Jeffrey Dean(and the rest of the cast) talk about her is very warming. Negan wore a full size grumpy bear costume for her, and I’m not sure why because I was laughing so loud.
The Whisperers dynamic is great. I’m not a huge Henry fan, I’m not that excited he takes the Carl comic story lines, but they don’t really have an alternative.
No, I didn’t catch TD, but I can tell the cast has a thing for her. She’s such a plucky, likable kid. And that’s saying something for me to appreciate her work, seeing as how I typically have no use for child actors, LOL.
I was encouraged by the first episode.
