AMC’s The Walking Dead returned last night and if you’ve read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series, the odds are pretty good that you recognized some of the big moments that went down in the show. From Rick Grimes’ allies turning the table on Negan’s forces (for now…) to the bloody and bleak way things went down in Alexandria, the new episode, ‘No Way Out’, drew some major inspiration from the source material. Obviously, there were a lot of changes throughout the episode, but we want to take a look at three moments that were basically pulled straight from the comic.
The latest episode of The Walking Dead, ‘Heads Up’, set the stage for season 6’s midseason finale while also answering whether or not Glenn was still alive. Towards the end of the episode, there’s a bit of hope on the horizon, and that’s something the residents of Alexandria desperately need. But it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead without having a moment of optimism completely destroyed by something terrible, would it? We’re all speculating about what’ll happen next (especially with the Wolf…), but one huge moment from the comic was heavily teased. If you haven’t read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series (fix that mistake asap, please), this would be a great time for you to back out this article. Unless you don’t mind a possible spoiler, that is. Seriously, consider yourself warned: there’sSPOILERS AHEAD!
