Are the folks behind The Walking Dead (or at least their social media accounts) gluttons for punishment? Okay, in an earlier post you might remember we ran down just how explosive 2021 is going to be for the TWD universe, starting with The Walking Dead returning on February 28 (Feb. 21 for AMC+ subscribers) with the first of six new episodes along with Talking Dead. From there, the second half of the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead kicks off in the spring, and TWD: World Beyond begins wrapping up its run when its final season premieres later this year. And let’s not forget The Walking Dead season 11 and Fear the Walking Dead season 7 both premiere later this year.
With all of that in play, the fandom’s anticipation levels are already at a nerve-wracking, Spinal Tap-loving 11. Those of you who witnessed that pathetic display on social media a week or so ago over rumors about Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) love life already know what we’re talking about (let’s not have that happen again, cool?). So when the main TWD Twitter account revealed that new emojis were on the way and the ones you saw above would be the ones they end up using the most, our first thought was, “‘TWD’ fans start assigning them to the episodes below in 8… 7… 6…” (eight’s our favorite number). Oh, and once those emojis have been assigned? Let the parade of “See? That’s what I’m talking about! The show’s always screwing over ________”. Our two initial thoughts? I’m probably going to end up throwing a fiery heart at “Find Me” (sorry, “Caryl” folks) and a whole crapload of bandaged hearts at “Here’s Negan.”
Here’s Your Look at The Walking Dead Season 10C
Some of the new faces joining the cast of The Walking Dead include Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason, Scorpion) as Mays, Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill, White Collar, Friday Night In with the Morgans) as Lucille, Okea Eme-Akwari (Greenland, Cobra Kai), and C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders, The Hitcher) reprising his role as a Season 9 Hilltop resident. The six new episodes will debut Sunday, February 28, at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT, followed by a new episode of Talking Dead each week.
Last time on The Walking Dead, we witnessed the fall of Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the end of the Whisperers War. The Kingdom had fallen, Hilltop was virtually destroyed and Alexandria abandoned to prepare for final battle. Our survivors were trapped and separated from one another. Yet, when faced with almost certain death, they rallied together to fight, killing Beta (Ryan Hurst) and eliminating the threat of the horde.
In these six new episodes, we find our survivors trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake. The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides. As they question the state of humanity, the state of their collective community, and the states of their minds, will they find the inner strength to persevere with their lives, friendships, and group intact?
EPISODE 1017 – “Home Sweet Home”: Maggie (Lauren Cohan) has returned with a story she is not ready to share, even when her past catches up to her. Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) safety is at stake again. Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Maggie fight an unseen and unknown threat. Director: David Boyd / Writers: Kevin Deiboldt & Corey Reed.
EPISODE 1018 – “Find Me”: An adventure for Daryl and Carol (Melissa McBride) turns sideways when they come across an old cabin. It takes Daryl back to the years when he left the group after Rick disappeared as he relives a time that only the apocalypse could manifest. Director: David Boyd / Writer: Nicole Mirante-Matthews.
EPISODE 1019 – “One More”: Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) search for food and supplies to bring back to Alexandria. Small tragedies lead to bigger tragedies as faith is broken and optimism is fragmented when they are put to the ultimate test. Director: Laura Belsey / Writers: Erik Mountain & Jim Barnes.
EPISODE 1020 – “Splinter”: Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Princess (Paola Lázaro) are captured and separated. Princess struggles with memories of her traumatic past and tries to escape one way or another with the help of Ezekiel. Director: Laura Belsey / Writers: Julia Ruchman & Vivian Tse.
EPISODE 1021 – “Diverged”: Daryl and Carol come to a fork in the road and head their separate ways. Each going into their own type of survival mode, the easiest of challenges become much harder. Will their individual journeys be the tipping point needed to mend their friendship or is the distance between them permanent? Director: David Boyd / Writer: Heather Bellson.
EPISODE 1022 – “Here’s Negan”: Carol takes Negan on a journey, hoping to minimize the increasing tension. Negan reflects on the events that led him to this point and comes to a conclusion about his future. Director: Laura Belsey / Writer: David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick.
