Walking Dead season 11: Key things that happened before the final season – Polygon

Yes, The Walking Dead is still on. Twelve years after Sheriff Rick Grimes stumbled out of a hospital bed, the AMC zombie apocalypse series kicked off its 11th and final season last summer, and will conclude in 2022. The show has survived showrunner changes, the death or disappearance of all but two characters who have been there since the first season, and a real-world pandemic, all while running more or less parallel to Robert Kirkman and Tony Moores comic book source material. The show has made plenty of original creative decisions, but even Season 11 will draw in new characters and arcs from the final issues of the comics. With a planned spinoff already announced for stars Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus, The Walking Dead franchise is anything but dead.

That said, based on viewership ratings, The Walking Dead has also lost fans over the years. If you dropped off the show at some point, youre not alone. To help get those who might want to jump back in for a final season get back up to speed, heres a look back at the milestones of The Walking Dead history, highlighting the actors in guest or small roles you totally forgot (or never knew) braved the Atlanta sun, as well as characters who have been introduced, have been killed off, or have antagonized the survivors over the years.

Who we met: Rick Grimes, Morgan Jones, Shane Walsh, Lori Grimes, Carl Grimes, Dale Horvath, Andrea, Glenn Rhee, Merle Dixon, Daryl Dixon, T-Dog, Carol Peletier, Sophia Peletier, Morales

Who we lost: Jacqui, Ed Peletier, Amy

You forgot about: Noah Emmerich played Edwin Jenner aka The CDC Guy. Emmerich recently reprised his role in the spin-off The World Beyond.

The big bad: The Walkers

The gist: Rick Grimes wakes up from a coma and into a zombie apocalypse. He is rescued by Morgan Jones. After making his way to Atlanta, he meets Glenn Rhee and a group of survivors.

Some drama erupts when one of Glenns companions, Merle, launches a racist attack against a man named T-Dog. Rick handcuffs Merle to a pipe on a roof to subdue him, but T-Dog drops the key. They abandon him on the roof and return in a later episode with his brother Daryl only to discover that Merle has sawed his own hand off and escaped.

Back at their camp, Rick is reunited with his wife Lori, his son Carl, and his best friend Shane who has taken up with his wife Lori. Yikes!

At the end of the season, the survivors seek answers and shelter at the CDC building outside of Atlanta. They find a little of both, but soon learn that the lone doctor, Edwin Jenner, plans to blow up the building. After pleading with him, Jenner lets them leave just before the place kabooms.

Who we met: Maggie Greene, Hershel Greene, Beth Greene

Who we lost: Sophia Peletier, Shane Walsh, Dale Horvath, Otis, Patricia

You forgot about: Michael Zegan, who went on to play Joel in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, played the antagonist Randall. Michael Raymond James, better known as Ren from True Blood, played a character named Dave.

The big bad: Shane Walsh

The gist: Ricks group is taken in by the Greene family at its farm. Glenn and the oldest daughter Maggie fall in love.

Carols daughter Sophia runs off, and the survivors search for her to no avail. Her zombified corpse wanders out of a locked barn full of walkers, and Rick puts her down.

Rick stabs his former best friend Shane in the chest after the philosophical and personal divide between the two of them reaches a breaking point.

The gang learns that everyone is infected with the walker virus and will turn when they die no matter how they die, not just if they get bitten. Dr. Edwin Jenner whispered this to Rick in the season 1 finale, and he held on to that information until the season 2 finale.

Who we met: Phillip Blake a.k.a. The Governor, Michonne Hawthorne, Tyreese, Sasha

Who we lost: Lori, Haley, Milton Mamet, Axel, Merle, T-Dog

You forgot about: Teen Wolf and Chicago Fire actor Melissa Ponzio played a survivor named Karen. This was also the first year Communitys Yvette Nicole Brown was a guest on the after-show Talking Dead.

The big bad: The Governor

The gist: Ricks group lodges at a (mostly) abandoned prison after clearing a herd of walkers from the yard.

Andrea befriends a woman named Michonne and the two of them discover a settlement called Woodbury led by a Governor with a tyrannical leadership style and a dark secret. Hes keeping his zombified daughter locked up like something out of Jane Eyre.

Lori dies in childbirth, forcing Carl to put a bullet in her brain before she reanimates.

Daryls brother Merle returns and sides with The Governor. He kidnaps Glenn and Maggie and tortures Glenn for Daryl and Ricks location while The Governor sexually harasses Maggie.

Michonne follows Glenn and Maggies tracks to the prison. She tells Rick and the others about the Governor. They dont trust her, but its the start of a beautiful friendship.

Rick, Carl, and Michonne discover Morgan living alone and mentally unstable. They try to convince him to come live with them, but he refuses.

Merle and Daryl are forced to fight, but its The Governor who ultimately kills Merle. In the season finale, Andrea is killed as well marking one of the series biggest departures from the source material.

Who we met: Bob Stookey, Abraham, Tara, Eugene, Rosita, Gareth, Lizzie and Mika

Who we lost: Hershel, The Governor, Zach, Karen and David, Lizzie and Mika

You forgot about: Aldis Hodge from Hidden Figures played Michonnes boyfriend Mike. Robin Lord Taylor, who played the Penguin on Gotham, appeared at Terminus in seasons 4 and 5. In a flashback, Enver Gjokaj, known for Agent Carter and Dollhouse, played a survivor named Pete who The Governor betrayed in his rise to power. Another Marvel alum, actress Kerry Condon who voices the AI system Friday in multiple films played a survivor named Clara in two episodes. Finally, Kyle Gallner, a.k.a. Beavers from Veronica Mars, played Beths boyfriend.

The big bad: The Governor, The Claimers, Terminus

The gist: Still at the prison, the survivors have a deadly flu strain to deal with on top of everything else. The disease came from pigs. Carol mercy kills two sick survivors and is temporarily banished from the group because of it.

The Governor, with Hershel and Michonne held hostage, drives a friggin tank up to the prison and confronts Rick and his council. He kills Hershel, and is killed shortly thereafter.

The group leaves the prison, scattered into about three small factions. They all individually start following signs towards a place called Terminus that offers sanctuary. Sasha becomes romantically involved with Bob.

Glenn and Tara, who used to be one of The Governors followers, meet Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene. They are on a mission to take Eugene, who claims to be a scientist with a cure for the Walker disease, to Washington D.C.

Lizzie Samuels starts to get a little too attached to the walkers, and kills her little sister just to make a point. In one of the shows most heartbreaking moments, Carol pulls an Of Mice and Men and kills Lizzie before she endangers anyone else.

Rick bites the neck of a man whose gang threatens to rape and murder both Michonne and Carl. No more Mr. Nice Rick.

All three groups make it to Terminus and pretty quickly discover that it is a trap. Dun dun dun!

Who we met: Father Gabriel Stokes, Aaron, Enid, the Monroe family, Jessie Anderson, Tobin, Olivia, Eric

Who we lost: Beth Greene, Bob Stookey, Jessies husband Pete, Tyreese

You forgot about: Maximiliano Hernndez, better known as Jasper Sitwell of the MCU, had a two-episode arc this season. Austin Abrams, of Dash and Lilly fame, played Jessies son Ron. Former child star Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) played a patient at the hospital with Beth. Tyler James Williams played Noah (and went on to star in Everybody Hates Chris).

The big bad: Terminus, Grady Memorial Hospital, Deanna Monroe

The gist: The gang escapes Terminus, which is inhabited by cannibals. Highlights include Carol pulling a sneak attack and blowing Terminus up with a rocket, and Bob Stookey weaponizing the ol hide your bite trick by allowing the cannibals to consume his tainted meat.

Beth is accidentally killed in a hostage situation after being indentured at a hospital.

Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita continue their quest to DC to find a cure for the virus until Eugene reveals that he was lying the whole time.

The group next comes to the Alexandria Safe-Zone, a suburban community led by a woman named Deanna Monroe. While she provides lodgings for the survivors, they dont trust her and her people dont trust them.

Carol discovers that a woman named Jessie is being abused by her husband Pete and requests that Rick take care of it. This causes further conflict between them and their new hosts especially as Rick bonds with Jessie.

Morgan Jones returns to the series a second time and has decided that Rick is the key to the future. In the seasons final and most powerful moment, Rick executes Pete on Deannas orders at the exact moment that Morgan reaches Alexandria.

Who we met: Paul Jesus Rovia, Dwight, Sherry, Gregory, Simon, Scott

Who we lost: The Andersons, Owen, Negans mysterious victim

You forgot about: In The Heights and Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins played Heath. This season also featured character actor John Carroll Lynch as Morgans mentor Eastman. Ethan Embry (Sweet Home Alabama, Grace and Frankie) appeared in one episode. And two-time Emmy winner Merritt Wever appeared for a handful of episodes in this season as Denise.

The big bad: The Wolves, Negan

The gist: Ricks group continues to stay at the Alexandria-Safe Zone. They are attacked by a group called The Wolves and find a herd of walkers in a quarry that eventually overruns Alexandria, killing a lot of its original inhabitants in the struggle.

Carl is accidentally shot by his dads girlfriends son Ron and loses an eye.

While on a mission to divert the herd, Glenn gets trapped under a dumpster with seemingly no way out. Steven Yeuns name is removed from the credits. Four episodes later, he returns.

Months later, the group meets a man who calls himself Jesus from another community living on a historical site called The Hilltop. Jesus tells them that his group is being extorted by people who call themselves The Saviors and are led by a man called Negan. The group agrees to help.

Theres a lot of relationship drama. Abraham breaks up with Rosita and pursues Sasha. Rick and Michonne become the power couple to end all power couples. Carol breaks up with Tobin.

Dwight, a Savior and the Daryl to Negans Rick, accidentally kills Taras girlfriend Denise. This happens fresh on the heels of several other lesbian character death scenes on television in 2016, including those in The 100 and Jane the Virgin, sparking a conversation about the Bury Your Gays trope.

The season ends on a cliffhanger, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan making a dramatic entrance as Negan, lining up most of the main characters and killing one of them just out of focus.

Who we met: Ezekiel, Jerry, Diane, Anne/Jadis, Henry

Who we lost: Abraham, Glenn, Spencer Monroe, Sasha, Olivia

You forgot about: Shiva, who is a tiger.

The big bad: Negan

The gist: The season 6 finale left fans guessing who Negan bludgeoned to death with his beloved bat Lucille. Would it be Glenn, like it is in the comics, or someone else? The writers werent going to let any fan theories be correct. They went with both options. Negan kills Abraham and then Glenn. Ouch.

Daryl is kidnapped by the Saviors and tortured with a banger song called Easy Street that was written for the show. Later in the season, Eugene is taken hostage and ends up switching sides for a bit, helping the Saviors make and develop weapons.

Maggie gives birth to her and Glenns son and names him Hershell.

Three new communities, each with their own connection to Negan, are added to the mix and recruited by Rick and his group: Oceanside, a group of women who live in isolation on the beach; The Scavengers, who live in a trash heap and are led by a mysterious artist; and The Kingdom, led by a charismatic former community theater actor who calls himself King Ezekiel.

Sasha takes a cyanide pill and dies by suicide while being taken as a hostage to Alexandria so that her walker form can take out some Saviors, Trojan-horse style, in the final episode.

Who we met: Siddiq, Arat, Alden

Who we lost: Shiva, Carl, Eric, Morales

You forgot about: Comedian Whitmer Thomas (Stone Quackers, the sketch group Power Violence) as Gunther. Jayne Atkinson, who you may know from House of Cards and Free Willy, shows up as Georgie.

The big bad: still Negan

The gist: The war between Ricks militia and the Saviors takes up the entire season. We also see more of what life is like at Negans Sanctuary, and a handful of Saviors attempt and fail to overthrow their fearless leader.

Remember Morales, the family man from season 1? Its revealed in season 8 that his family died and he fell in with the Saviors. He threatens Rick and is shot dead by Daryl.

Maggie meets a woman named Georgie who gives her a book with schematics for windmills, aqueducts, and other medieval infrastructure technology that can help survivors build a future from our past.

Eugene finally betrays the Saviors by crafting ammunition that backfires on them.

Carl was bitten by a walker while bringing a doctor named Siddiq to Alexandria, and prepared for his imminent death by writing a lot of letters. He wrote to Negan. He wrote to Rick. He wrote to Enid. He wrote to Michonne. He argued for ending the war and forgiving Negan in favor of building a brighter future.

To honor Carls wishes, and much to the dismay of Maggie and many of the other survivors, when Rick corners Negan in the final battle against the Saviors, he doesnt kill him.

Who we met: Magna, Connie, Kelly, Luke, Yumiko, Alpha, Beta, Lydia, Earl and Tammy Rose Sutton

Who we lost: Gregory, Jesus, Tara, Enid, Tammy Rose, Henry

You forgot about: Rutina Wesley (True Blood, Queen Sugar) guest-starred as a former friend of Michonnes. Tony Award winner Steve Kazee (Once) also appeared in one episode this season as Alphas husband.

The big bad: Alpha

The gist: Andrew Lincoln departs the series as Rick Grimes, but his character was not killed off. He gets abducted by the artist Anne/Jadis and taken away in a helicopter with a mysterious symbol that also shows up on the TWD spin-offs Fear The Walking Dead and The World Beyond.

In the aftermath of the Savior War, Maggie has Gregory executed and takes over The Hilltop. However, she ultimately leaves with Georgie to help build other communities.

There are two time jumps this season first to two years after the end of the Savior War, and then to six years after Ricks disappearance. Now eight years after the end of season 8, we learn that Michonne is the de factor leader at Alexandria, and Jesus is in charge of the Hilltop.

A coalition has formed from the surviving communities: Alexandria, The Kingdom, Oceanside, and The Hilltop. A fifth group, called The Highwaymen, also joins. Some of the remaining Saviors have joined the four communities. Others take off. But despite the coalition on paper, the communities are a bit divided in Ricks absence.

Also in that time, some romances have brewed. We learn that Rosita is in a long-term relationship with Father Gabriel after briefly sleeping with Siddiq, Enid is now with Alden, and Carol and Ezekiel got married but then break up in the season finale. Daryl has also been living in the woods and returns with a dog named Dog.

A new threat arises after a period of peace. This group, called The Whisperers, is led by a woman who wants to be known only as Alpha and wears masks made out of walker skin so as to live amongst them. Alphas daughter Lydia is captured and held at Alexandria, but ultimately defects and asks to stay there.

The Whisperers first attack Jesus, who dies in a foggy blaze of glory. They then make a statement by kidnapping, torturing, and beheading 10 survivors from the other communities who were enjoying a peaceful unity fair including Tara, Enid, and Carols adopted son Henry. Their heads are placed on pikes as a warning not to cross into Whisperer territory.

In the season finale, a big snowstorm destroys the infrastructure at The Kingdom, and brings all of the characters back together at Alexandria and the Hilltop. They have a snowball fight! Michonne begrudgingly thanks Negan for saving Judith. But Alpha, Beta, and the Whisperers are still out there

Who we met: Princess, Stephanie (kind of), Leah, Pope, Virgil

Who we lost: Earl, Dante, Lucille the baseball bat, Siddiq

You forgot about: Thora Birch (Ghost World) played a Whisperer named Gamma. Robert Patrick played twin brothers in a stand-alone episode, and Jeffrey Dean Morgans wife Hilarie Burton played Negans wife Lucille in a flashback.

The big bad: Alpha, Beta

The gist: The supersized season was broken up into parts and aired in 2019, 2020, and 2021 due to pandemic shutdowns. In it, The Whisperer War wages on. The Hilltop burns and the Alexandria walls are breached. Lydia bonds with Negan and Carol.

Carol helps Negan escape. He infiltrates The Whisperers and kills Alpha. Later, Negan and Daryl take out Beta, and the Whisperer War ends.

Lauren Cohen also returns in the midseason finale as Maggie. She has a group of survivors with her who are being antagonized by The Reapers. Shes not too jazzed about how friendly Negan has become with everyone. To ease the tension, Carol suggests that he live in isolation. He tries that, and then in the seasons final moments heads back to Alexandria.

Throughout the season Eugene starts to talk to a woman named Stephanie on the radio. He travels to find her with Yumiko and Ezekiel. They meet a lone survivor named Princess and end up getting captured by Stephanies people.

What happened to Michonne in The Walking Dead? – Undead Walking

Fans of the long-running series The Walking Dead have experienced much heartbreak along the way. From fan-favorite characters being killed off to major actors leaving the series for various reasons. One character departure that has left a massive hole in the fandoms hearts is Michonne.

Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, is an iconic series character as well as comic book character. Her story differs between the series and the comics, but the overall badassery of the character is consistent. In season three of the series, she came on the scene, which mirrored her comic introduction. With katana drawn and her pet walkers at her side, it was a moment fans will never forget.

She proved to be a vital member of the communities and would go on to be a successful leader.

In season six, Michonne would finally come together with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) to create the fan-favorite coupling of Richonne.It was a match made in apocalyptic heaven as these two characters that were a force individually created a powerhouse couple.

In season nine, Rick sacrificed himself by blowing up the bridge to keep the communities safe from the horde of walkers descending on them. Rick would survive, but only the viewers were privy to this information. Michonne thought she had lost the love of her life and the scene was heartwrenching.

After the time jump in season nine, it is revealed that Michonne gave birth to Ricks son, R.J., who she raises with Ricks daughter Judith. She also became the leader of Alexandria but was very suspicious of newcomers due to her experience with Jocelyn.

Eventually, Virgil comes along and barters with Michonne, his life for weapons. She follows him to his island and discovers some of Ricks belongings, indicating that Rick did survive the blast. The realization that her soulmate may still be alive has given her hope. She radios Judith with the news, and Judith encourages her to search for her missing father.

The last we see of Michonne is when she discovers two travelers, one is injured, who are trying to get back to their group. As Michonne looks towards the valley below, she sees a caravan of survivors. She decides to help them, and this begins her search for Rick.

Perhaps we will see her again in The Walking Dead movies that will see Andrew Lincoln reprise his role as Rick Grimes.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 20.

Tales of the Walking Dead: Will we see a Tyreese and Sasha episode? – Undead Walking

AMCs third spin-off of The Walking Dead series, Tales of the Walking Dead, has started filming. This series will be an episodic anthology with stories featuring characters from earlier seasons of the flagship series.

Fans have shared their ideas for who should be featured, but there has been no official announcement of a cast or synopsis for these episodes. There have been many characters whose backstory would be a welcome addition to the stories in The Walking Dead universe.

The showrunner, Channing Powell, has been involved in TWDU as a writer and producer for TWD and Fear the Walking Dead. Tales of the Walking Dead will release in Summer 2022.

In season three, fans were introduced to the brother-sister duo of Tyreese and Sasha Williams. The characters were played by Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green.

Tyreese was a strong and compassionate man who selflessly protected others. He died in season five and is greatly missed by viewers. His younger sister Sasha was fierce and logical and met her end when she sacrificed herself for the residents of Alexandria.

How cool would it be to see Tyreese and Sasha one more time in an episode of Tales of the Walking Dead?

Chad Coleman posted a photo on Instagram where he just happened to run into the director of the seriesMichael Satrazemis.

Fans have gotten their hopes up that this meeting was more than just a coincidence. Is Coleman shooting a series of this episode? The photo was posted the same day that filming began in Buford, Georgia.

Sonequa Martin-Green has been a busy woman as Captain Michael Burnham on Star Trek: Discovery. The final six episodes of season four of this series will begin airing on Paramount+ on February 10.The series has been renewed for a fifth season, but there has been no news that filming has started. So, Martin-Green would surely have time to film one little episode reprising her role as Shasha, right?

This storyline is an exciting prospect as it would be interesting to learn more about the Williams siblings.

Chad Coleman Defends Tyreese’s Death on The Walking Dead –

Chad Coleman defends Tyreese against claims his character "died the lamest way possible" onThe Walking Dead. Coleman played the tough but temperate Tyreese Williams across three seasons of the AMC zombie drama, surviving the Governor (David Morrissey), a post-apocalyptic super-flu, and being hunted by the cannibals of Terminus. But during a trip to Noah's (Tyler James Williams) old community in the Season 5 episode "What Happened and What's Going On," Noah's zombified younger brother bites Tyreese on the arm. Before Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira), and Glenn (Steven Yeun) can get him medical care, Tyreese succumbs from blood loss after the amputation of his zombie-bitten limb.

"That's what people say. I don't believe that at all, to tell you honestly," Coleman said on The VOC Podcast in response to a claim his character "died the lamest way possible." Coleman defended the death, saying the episode from director Greg Nicotero and writer Scott Gimple was a tribute befitting of a character who struggled with the violence necessary to live in the zombie apocalypse.

"How many times do you see an African American male with power and vulnerability like that? He's an amazing mix of vulnerability, bro. I love that, I love playing that," Coleman said. "The dude could take a hammer and smash your face in and then just feel the most vulnerable for his family and people. I love that and I thought the episode was totally apropos for the man he was. If you never saw the show and you watched that one episode, you get who Tyreese is."

RELATED STORY: Tyreese May Be The Walking Dead's Debut Anthology Tale

After noting "a lot of people" have similarly criticized Tyreese's death by sneaking walker, Coleman was asked if his character might have been saved.

"Of course he could have. Of course," he said. "But those are things that I'm not going to go into and open up pandora's box on that. It's all good, it's all love. I have amazing memories and I made an impact."

Seven years after his final episode ofThe Walking Dead, Coleman hashinted at Tyreese's returnon the forthcoming episodic anthology seriesTales of the Walking Dead. The spinoff, which will tell new stories set at the beginning of theWalking Deadapocalypse andother zombie tales with returning characters, is now filming for a summer 2022 premiere on AMC.

How did Duane Jones die in The Walking Dead? – Undead Walking

When it was announced that The Walking Dead series would end with its eleventh season, the fandom was disappointed, to say the least. It seemed like the end date was further away as the final season would consist of 24 episodes which is practically a double season. But now the end is near, as the last episode will air in 2022. Fans are now looking back on characters weve lost along the way. One character we saw in the pilot episode that was eventually killed was Duane Jones.

In the pilot episode, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) met with the father-son duo of Morgan (Lennie James) and Duane (Adrian Kali Turner) Jones. The Jones took Rick into their home to care for his wound sustained from being shot. Morgan was initially suspicious until he was certain Ricks injury wasnt from a walker bite.

This was the beginning of a long relationship between Rick and Morgan, but sadly, Duane was killed early on.

Morgan and Duane choose to stay in King County for a few more days as Rick plans to head to Atlanta to look for his family. Morgan planned to join Rick in a few days, and in the meantime, they would communicate via walkies. Rick never saw Morgan again until season three.

In the episode Clear from season three, Rick, Carl and Michonne were on a supply run when they encounter Morgan. He is a bit unhinged at this point due to all the trauma he has endured. Rick is finally able to get through to him, and Morgan explains his sons fate.

In the pilot episode, Morgan is unable to shoot his reanimated wife, Jenny. Try as he might, he cant gather the strength to kill his love. This will come back to haunt him.

Sometime after Rick heads to Atlanta, Morgan leaves his son to search the basement of a home. When he returns, he sees his son pointing a gun at the walker version of his mother, where he too is unable to shoot her. Jenny comes at Duane, biting him; only then can Morgan shoot his wife, but its too late. Duane becomes infected and turns. It isnt clear if Morgan let him roam or was able to put down his son.

Although we only saw a little bit of Duane in the series, he was essential to Ricks story, and it was sad to hear that Morgan had to endure yet another loss. He has carried the burden of these losses into the current timeline.

The Walking Deadreturns to AMC on February 20, 2022.

Judith The Walking Dead season 11, whats to come? – Undead Walking

Judith Grimes has had to experience so much loss for a child so young in The Walking Dead series. The character, currently portrayed by Cailey Fleming, is a child who is going to places in her career. She is an extremely talented actress who has brought so much life to Judith since taking over the role as an older Judith after the time jump in season nine.

Judith was born in the apocalypse, and viewers have followed her journey from her horrific birth in the prison in season three to the current timeline. Dubbed Little Asskicker by her uncle Daryl she has lived up to that name as she defends herself and others in recent seasons.

The clip below highlights a conversation with Daryl after Michonne went off to find Rick. Judith knows that Michonne is following clues that could lead her to Rick. But, in the clip, Judith doesnt tell Daryl the whole truth, knowing he would also leave her to go off searching as well. We dont often see Judith express so much emotion, and it is heartbreaking to see.

The last we saw of Judith in the season 11 part one finale, she and Gracie were trapped in the flooded basement of the house in Alexandria. During the storm, a horde of walkers entered the community via damaged walls and eventually entered the house where a group had taken shelter.

The final scene of the two girls (below) shows the pair in dire straights as they fend off many walkers.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Showrunner Angela Kang gave some good insight into Judith and her journey going forward in season 11:

Judith is in a headspace where the community she has functionally grown up in almost her whole life and probably the only place she really remembers is just falling apart around her. And this is a time when Judith has to be strong for people like the younger kids, but shes still very much a child. Weve been thinking a lot about this apocalyptic scenario we write and how there is so much weightiness placed on the children, and that theres so much they have to bear and [they have] be mature in the face of not knowing where their own family is.We wanted to touch on that, but also show that in Judith is the child of her parents and her community around her. She does figure out how to pull it together, even if she feels like shes falling apart a little bit inside. Shes been put into extraordinary circumstances, and how is she going to deal with that? Because much like Carl [Chandler Riggs], shes had to face things nobody her age should have to alone.

Part two of season 11 will return in February, and we will learn the girls fate. They will undoubtedly survive, but it will be exciting to see how they accomplish this feat.

As the series quickly comes to an end, what will be in store for Judith? Will she ever see their mother and father again? Will her brother RJ ever meet his father? Perhaps we will have to wait until The Walking Dead movies to see that reunion, but viewers deserve to see it played out at some point.

The Walking Deadreturns to AMC on February 20, 2022.

Project Zomboid showed me that 11 years of The Walking Dead was useless – Rock Paper Shotgun

Ive always entertained the idea of an apocalypse. I mean, zombies are definitely scary, but itd be a cool fantasy to play out. Over the years, Ive even formed my own little plan. Loot some local houses and then set up a base in the fire station on my street. Theyve got electric gates and metal fences to guard the perimeter, a renewable power source thanks to a wind turbine on the roof, and a really handy watchtower. I thought 11 years of The Walking Dead wouldve prepared me fairly well and I fancied my chances. So, I made myself in Project Zomboid. It turns out, everything I learned from The Walking Dead was useless.

My Zomboid character was modeled as close to me as possible, which ended up being a very bad character build. Zomboid asks you to pick from a list of positive and negative traits, and I got a lot of negatives. A sleepy, clumsy, disorganised guy with poor eyesight and hearing. Oh, and hes scared of anything gory. This does not bode well. Still, I think hes poised for greatness. Most classic heroes are defined by their flaws, after all. Achilles heel and all that. Maybe the great flaw that I'll overcome is being completely unprepared for the apocalypse in every way possible.

It all kicks off in some kind of abandoned office. Maybe RPS crumbled and Im the only one left. As I comb through the desks hoping for half-eaten apples and any other apocalyptic delights to munch on, I find a strange amount of nightsticks. Why does everyone in the RPS treehouse have nightsticks in their desks?

Oh wait, no. Im in a police station.

Im not sure what I did to be in there, but hey, I'm not in a jail cell so theres that. I explore the station further, hoping to find an armoury stocked with guns and ammo like in the premiere of The Walking Dead. That show makes it pretty clear that guns are perfect in the apocalypse. You can mow down hordes of the undead and get nothing but a scratch if youre the main character, and Im definitely the main character in my Zomboid save, so I have plenty of plot armour. Unfortunately, I'm not lucky enough to find big cabinets filled with guns, but there are some sturdy clothes that should protect me from bites and other brain-eating nastiness. Despite my flawed character build, this is looking like a decent start.

After leaving the police station, I start looking around for a car. The Walking Dead makes it very clear that you should head straight to the nearest big city, so I wander over to some nearby vehicles, only to come face to face with my biggest foe: walkers, zeds, shamblers, or freaks. If Ive learned anything from The Walking Dead and a lot of other zombie fiction, its to never actually say the word "zombie" when youre in the apocalypse.

The fight was intense, but my plot armour (and all of those police batons I found) helped me survive. With corpses starting to litter the car park and the light starting to fade, I quickly loop around and check all of the cars. Locked, locked, and locked. Okay, so that plan didnt work out. I could smash a window, but I don't want to risk alerting the horde of undead lurking further down the street. So, like my favourite TV heroes, I hatch a cunning plan. If I manage to take down all of those walkers, I can take this car and make my way to Louisville, which is the biggest city in Zomboid.

With that, my stealth kill montage begins. You could (and should) picture me cutting throats and chopping heads, quickly gutting every zed in my path. In reality, it's much more clumsy. I make a lot of noise and experience some very close calls that almost end Zomboid Hayden before his life really gets going. But, I make it out alive. Plot armour, baby. Maybe The Walking Dead is accurate and dealing with hordes of the ravenous undead is a piece of cake.

As I look up from the blood-covered battleground, I lay eyes on the golden goose. The holy grail. That thing that the protagonist searches for and always finds towards the end of the season. For some, its a lost relative, or a potential cure or a glimpse of their hometown on the horizon. A promise of new stories to come and new adventures to be had. For me, it's the fire station that I've always dreamed of. A safe haven. A home. Somewhere to hide and hopefully not starve. I could live quietly, peacefully, and without drama, like all of those The Walking Dead time skips when nothing eventful happens.

Wait, did someone mention starving? People dont starve in The Walking Dead, right? They find entire functional farms and magic up infrastructure between seasons. Maybe I should just log off and hope that Zomboid places heaps of food in my cupboards before the next session. Another lie from my favourite zombie show. Sigh. This apocalypse stuff is way harder than they make it look on TV.

After frantically searching the fire station for food and finding absolutely nothing (not even a cracker), I head back out. A short trek through the forest and a few close calls with the undead later, I stumble upon a small house that surely contains food. Tinned food is like gold in the apocalypse, so cupboards stocked with the stuff is like finding a dragons hoard at the end of a dungeon. Well, before I could even get inside and start munching, two more walkers shamble around the corner. I'm starving, carrying way too many nightsticks, and extremely tired. This is a fight to the death, my big action scene.

I beg that you just picture something really cool. Maybe I swung a katana around like a badass ninja, or crafted a spiked baseball bat and went to town like Negan. Anything is better than the flailing mess of a fight that ensued in which I was constantly dragged to the ground by a crawling, err... crawler. Still, after a few minutes of button-mashing and nightstick-swinging, I survived. This plot armour stuff sure is handy, but thats enough trouble for one day. To the victor go the spoils or whatever they say, and I'm ready for some food and a night of healthy sleep.

I jimmy the lock on the window, but as it slides open, the unthinkable happens. A house alarm blares into the silent night, ringing a dinner bell for every brain-eating corpse in the neighbourhood. That could not have gone any worse. Okay, maybe this is my big finale moment. I spin around, desperately scanning for an escape path. With nowhere to go, I run down the road as the undead crowd around me. If this was The Walking Dead, it would have cut to black as the protagonist stared their own demise in the face, only to escape it in the opening moments of the next episode. I didnt fare so well. As I shamble down the street, bloodied and bruised from my adventure, the living dead pile on and begin their feast.

So, 11 years of dedicated The Walking Dead viewing was useless. One big lie thats going to get you killed. Zomboid does, in its defence, try to warn you right at the start, as every save begins with the phrase: This is how you died. Heed that warning, folks, and use the tips and tricks guide I wrote instead. There are plenty of good lessons to learn in there. Regardless, my real-life plan is still head to the fire station up the road. Those electric gates are just perfect, I reckon. Maybe Ill do a big Lidl shop beforehand so that I can stock up on biscuits to sustain me during that time skip. Id probably find a bunch of nightsticks there as well. You never know what you might find in the middle of Lidl.

‘The Walking Dead’ Trailer Teases Threats to Come in Season 11 Part 2 (VIDEO) – Livermore Independent

Darkness is heavy, the trailer for the middle third ofThe Walking Deads final season tells us. And the ones who are strong enough to hold the weight are the ones who carry it more.

When Season 11 Part 2 premieres on Sunday, February 20 at 9/8c on AMC (and a week earlier on AMC+), it looks like Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) cant help but wonder if its just a matter of time before Maggie (Lauren Cohan) ends up having to make the same call he did. But we (still) have to wonder if Maggie will kill Negan for taking her husband (Steven Yeuns Glenn) from her. Is that why Daryl (Norman Reedus) is trying to stop her in the trailer?


Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth, we meet its governor, Pamela Milton (Laila Robins). Thanks to my fathers sacrifices, we are all here, she says. Brick by brick and block by block, were putting the world back together, the way it was.

Watch the trailer below for a closer look at the threats coming in the next eight episodes.

WhenThe Walking Dead returns, many of our heroes fighting imminent hellfire under Reaper attack; while others battle Mother Natures torrential wrath in Alexandria. For all, their world is literally crashing down around them, AMC teases. Meanwhile, life in the Commonwealth is not as idyllic as it seems. For some, hope will be renewed. Others will be pushed past the point of no return. One truth holds tight: Lives hang in the balance with each decision drastically changing their future, their chances of survival, and the state of each community.

The Walking Dead, Season 11 Part 2 Premiere, Sunday, February 20, 9/8c, AMC (February 13, AMC+)

The Lost Actor Who Almost Played Rick Grimes In The Walking Dead – Looper

According toUproxx, Mark Pellegrino, who is probably best known for playing the mysterious Jacob on "Lost," was once in the running to play Rick Grimes on "The Walking Dead." Fans of the comic book series will note that the actor looks a lot like the character as he's drawn. Apparently, Pellegrino wasn't the only actor considered for the role either. Jamie Bamber from "Battlestar Galactica," Stuart Townsend from "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," and Ethan Embry from "Sweet Home Alabama" all auditioned for the role as well. Interestingly enough, Embry did end up appearing on "The Walking Dead" eventually, though in a completely different role: Carter, a construction worker in the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

Again, it's hard to imagine a world in which Andrew Lincoln doesn't play Rick. It's also hard not to wonder if the character would still be on the show had a different actor stepped into the role given that he was written off because Lincoln wanted to spend more time with his family (via Screen Rant). Of course, that leads to all kinds of other questions, including whether the show would even have been as popular without Lincoln's involvement. It's impossible to say, but it's fun to speculate just how different "The Walking Dead" would have been now if someone else had landed the lead role.
