The Walking Dead AMC

Article by Gregg Katzman

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 Walking Dead Rick Carl Grimes comic

Article by Gregg Katzman

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’s SPOILERS AHEAD!

The Walking Dead Morgan

By Gregg Katzman

AMC’s sixth season of The Walking Dead has been an intense ride. Right out of the gate, viewers were thrown into a jaw-dropping situation and, as expected, nothing went as planned. It’s been one gripping scene after another, but the latest episode, ‘ Here’s Not Here’, slowed things down. No longer was the focus on the bigger story and the characters who are in major trouble. There were no swarms of walkers, no follow-up with BIG questions fans have been asking since a week ago. Is that one character truly dead? (Probably not.) Will Rick lose his hand? (Probably not?) Season 6 has been one thrilling event after another, but last night’s new episode cast all of season 6’s events aside (for the most part, that is) so it could focus on a key character: Lennie James’ Morgan Jones.
