Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

In the previous episode, 6.5 “Now,” of The Walking Dead, Rick had returned to the Safe Zone, and so had Michonne and her group, after the community was attacked by the Wolves. While the audience knew what happened to Glenn and Nicholas, the residents still held out hope for their return — and every fan of the show is still waiting for a miracle that would bring Glenn back. What neither the residents nor the audience knew yet is what happened to Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham. The trio had continued with the original mission to lure a pack of Walkers away from the Alexandria Safe Zone, while Rick and Michonne’s respective groups went to deal with the Walkers that had been drawn away from the path by the loud horn emanating from the Safe Zone, which was under attack by the Wolves.

On this week’s The Walking Dead, Episode 6.6 “Always Accountable,” we finally got to see what happened to Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham in a story that stays solely on them and their encounters.

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

The big focus so far of Season 6 of The Walking Dead has been the threat to the Alexandria Safe Zone not only from the surrounding undead Walkers, but also from the invading human Wolves, all of which is happening in the face of dwindling supplies and rations, as well as hostilities amongst the residents.

Back in Episode 6.3, Glenn was seemingly killed, shocking audiences, and making us all despondent as we awaited confirmation on this major character’s fate. The follow-up episode not only did not give that confirmation, it swayed completely away from the people of Alexandria, and instead focused entirely on Morgan (Lennie James) and his journey. It was undoubtedly an amazing episode in the series that had it been shown at a different order in the season, everyone would likely have eaten it up. Instead, we all sat on pins and needles wondering what happened to Glenn. Could he have survived that Walker attack?

Episode 6.3 “Thank You”
Directed by Michael Slovis

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 6.3 “Thank You”

Last week’s The Walking Dead, Episode 6.2 “JSS” showed us what happened when the Wolves attacked the citizens of the Alexandria Safe Zone while the Rick and his group — the bulk of the “fighters” — were leading the Walkers away from the area.

This week, in Episode 6.3 “Thank You,” we see what happened with Rick and his group while the Alexandrians — led by Carol — were defending their homes. Rick’s team heard the loud horn sounding near the Safe Zone, which then drew the Walkers back there, so they had to decide: do they go forward in their mission to lead the Walkers far away, or do they run back home to protect their people?

In the end, Rick realizes that they can’t abandon their mission because they still have half the herd following them away from the Safe Zone, so they have to keep going. But, they still have to get the other half of the Walkers who were diverted. That means, the group has to break up again, and come up with a new plan.

Lennie James as Morgan Jones - The Walking Dead

SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 6.2 “JSS”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 6.2 “JSS” aired last night and it gave us the chance to see how this group of survivors would fare without our A list of heroes, like Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Glenn. And while some managed to survive, it had a lot to do with Morgan and Carol, who both were quick to jump into action. While Morgan has the skills to take on multiple attackers at once, his struggle to retain his humanity becomes a hindrance at times when the Wolves attack the Alexandria Safe Zone. Carol infiltrate and sneak-attack approach was much more practical and effective.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jessie defending her children and her home against one of the invading Wolves. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3 1/2-minute “Making of” featurette about the invasion of the Wolves, while the other is a 4-minute “Inside Look” that focuses on Carol’s heroics, Morgan’s struggles, and the horrible danger that the Zonies never knew existed.

See below for all the aforementioned videos.

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 6.2 “JSS.”

Last week’s Season 6 premiere of The Walking Dead, Episode 6.1 “Last Time Again” filled in the gaps of what happened right after the events of the Season 5 finale, and what’s happening now with Rick Grimes and the residents Alexandria Safe Zone. While outside the community walls, Rick and Morgan discovered how it is that the Safe Zone has yet to invaded by Walkers — the undead in the surrounding area have become trapped at the bottom of nearby granite quarry.

While anyone else would be thrilled to know that the Walkers are contained, Rick isn’t, because he’s practical. He knows that it’s only a matter of time before the quarry barricade is breached, and the Walkers come knocking at the walls of the Safe Zone. It took some convincing, but eventually everyone came on board with Rick’s new plan to be proactive and corral the Walkers to an area 20 miles away. The plan was, Miraculously, working… until it wasn’t anymore when a blaring horn began sounding, leading the Walkers away and back towards the Safe Zone.

SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 6.1 “Last Time Again”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 6.1 “Last Time Again,” the 90-minute season premiere, aired last night and it was awesome!!! Season 5 went out with the bang, literary, and the season had spent many episodes on Rick and his possible loss of humanity. Most of us who’ve followed this leader for five seasons understand what he’s been through and the decisions he’s had to make to save his group, and I for one would follow him to the ends of the earth. It’s obvious that so would his close circle — like Michonne, Glenn, and Carol — but the citizens of the Alexandria Safe Zone don’t know Rick like we do. To them, he’s an outside who seems to choose force over reason. But, with this premiere, all the residents are finally on the same page — Rick knows what’s he’s doing, he knows what’s he’s talking about, and he has a major plan to keep them all safe. Now, it’s time to enact that plan – ready or not.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which dealt with Rick having to quickly put Carter out of his misery. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 4 1/2-minute “Making of” featurette about filming the quarry scene, while the other is a 5 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at where the characters are at the start of Season 6; Rick’s reunion with Morgan; and how the group is going to handle the imminent breach at the quarry.

Tovah Feldshuh as Deanna Monroe and Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes - The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead
Episode 6.1 “First Time Again”
Directed by Greg Nicotero
Written by Scott M. Gimple & Matthew Negrete
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohen, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James
AMC
Air date: Sunday, October 11, 2015, 9pm

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 6.1 “First Time Again.”

The end of Season 5 of The Walking Dead taught us that even after all the horrors people have faced in this post-apocalyptic world, that not only is redemption possible, but so is the ability to trust. In the premiere of Season 6, these themes are continued. Plus, it’s confirmed that, more than ever, Rick Grimes is always right.

The second part of Season 5 was centered on Rick and his conflict with the residents of the Alexandria Safe Zone. The residents had been hold up in the community since the beginning of the zombie outbreak, so they have no experience actually combatting the Walkers, and they find Rick’s survival tactics to be overly aggressive. Meanwhile, Rick thinks the Zonies are too complacent, and that is what will eventually get them all killed.

The 90-minute Season 6 premiere, “First Time Again,” is broken up between black and white flashbacks to the events starting from the minutes right after the Season 5 finale, and present-day Safe Zone, where, thankfully, everyone is finally on the same page.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale

SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Episode 516 “Conquer.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale — Episode 516 “Conquer” — aired on Sunday night and thankfully, we didn’t get the usual heartbreaking shockers that typically accompany these final episodes. Instead, we got, what I felt was, a perfect ending to a great season, especially these last few episodes.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which centered on the town meeting, where Rick’s fate was to be decided. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3-minute “Making of” featurette on the booby trap scene, while the other is a 5 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at what was going on at the Alexandria Safe Zone, as well as what Daryl and Aaron came up against on the outside.

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale – Episode 516 “Conquer.”

For tonight’s Season 5 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the showrunners promised us blood. They promised us loss. And we got both of those things in Episode 516 “Conquer.” But, for this final installment of the season, we also saw redemption, forgiveness, and enlightenment, as well as a look at some of the real horrors that await the residents — both original and new — of the Alexandria Safe Zone.

It’s well known that fans of The Walking Dead have every intension of rioting if one of the main, fan-favorite characters dies. The show has made it a habit of shockingly killing off some of the beloved people who we’re just not ready to say good-bye to. Thankfully, for the season finale, they didn’t pull that gimmick. Instead, we see the culmination and resolution of some of the biggest, most contentious relationships and situations of this season.

Warning – Spoilers for The Walking Dead Episode 515 “Try.”

Tonight’s Episode 515 “Try” of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the residents — old and new — of the Alexandria Safe Zone are coping with the loss of those who perished in the last episode. But, in the zombie apocalypse, there’s no time to grieve. Throw on some Nine Inch Nails and have a little cry, but then it’s back to business.

And the business of the day is what exactly happened out there on that supply run that ended so disastrously? It’s up to Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) to decide. So far, the leader of the Safe Zone has come across as an intelligent, fair, and intuitive person who seems to see through all the lies and deceit. She’s exactly who you’d want to be the final word in the community. But, is she too good to be true? If so, will she last? Let’s hope.
