It’s a Cold Day in Hell on The Walking Dead Season Finale

After last week’s excellent “The Calm Before,” you might expect the season nine finale, titled “The Storm,” to bring the storm. It does, in the form of a massive blizzard the likes of which we have never seen on the show, which puts everyone in danger. But compared to last week’s shocker, “The Storm” was a low-key but compelling check-in with the characters before season 10 — and another reminder of just how much the show has improved over this last year.

Last Night’s Walking Dead Was Shocking, Savage, and Utterly Spectacular

Guys, I haven’t been this stunned by an episode of The Walking Dead in so long. I mean, I was pleasantly surprised when a zombie knifed Jesus, I’ve enjoyed the wackiness of the Whisperers and the Highwaymen, and I’ve loved the bizarre way Rick was taken off the show. But last night’s episode was just fantastic — and it had an ending so shocking my jaw literally dropped. Read More >>

The Walking Dead’s Big Secret Has Been Revealed, and It’s Brilliant

Ever since the seven-or-so-year time jump earlier this season, viewers of the venerable zombie series have wondered what the hell happened between Rick’s departure and the present that led to the breakdown between the various communities and turned Michonne from someone trying to honor Carl’s vision of hope into a hardass willing to let anyone suffer as long as her own people are safe. Now we have the answer, and oh man. Oh man. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Just Raised 2 Powerful, Interesting Questions About Its World

The latest episode of The Walking Dead, “Bounty,” focused on two stories, each with its own burning question. One question was very serious. The other, less so, but no less interesting to think about in a world of zombies and death. And, thankfully, the latter brought back some of the series’ best characters, who’d been sidelined for a few weeks. Read More >>

The Next Great Walking Dead Villain Is Here, and She Wants to Kill Civilisation

After almost nine seasons, it’s pretty rare for a brand new character to get their very own episode of The Walking Dead and yet that’s exactly what happened Sunday night. The episode, called “Omega,” introduced Samantha Morton as Alpha, the eventual leader of the Whisperers and mother to Lydia, the young woman Daryl and Michonne captured last week. And she is not to be messed with. Read More >>

How The Walking Dead Blew Up a Bridge Full of Zombies Without Actually Blowing Up a Real Bridge

Just a few weeks after it originally aired, Goodbye Kansas Studios has shared a behind-the-scenes video of its work on The Walking Dead episode “What Comes After,” where Rick, with some help from a pile of dynamite, blows up a bridge full of approaching zombies. Creating one of the series’ most complicated shots required extensive post-production work, but surprisingly, no actual bridges were harmed in the process. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Got Scary Again in Its Mostly Excellent Mid-Season Finale

The first half of The Walking Dead’s ninth season has been mostly good, something no one could have predicted after the show’s dire, audience-haemorrhaging the last few years. Happily, the mid-season finale kept up the streak by including a few shockers, an excellent cliffhanger, and only a few instances where you want to punch someone through your screen. But most of all, for the first time in I don’t know how long, I cringed at The Walking Dead – in a good way. Read More >>

Something’s Very Wrong With Michonne on The Walking Dead

Well, here’s the good news: After last week’s troubling, backpedaling, post-Rick, post-timeskip “premiere,” The Walking Dead regained some of its footing tonight to produce a perfectly fine, if not particularly memorable episode. The bad news is that something’s wrong with Michonne, and it’s kind of a bummer. Read More >>

The Walking Dead Did Something So Crazy I Can’t Believe It

Guys? Guys. I barely know what to say about tonight’s The Walking Dead, which was highly touted as Andrew Lincoln’s final episode, but ended up being much, much more. I fully expect this episode to be very divisive, but I loved it. Call it bold, crazy, stupid, fantastic, infuriating, whatever – I can’t remember the last time a Walking Dead episode ended with my jaw on the floor. Read More >>

Ever since The Walking Dead made its return, we’ve been preparing for life in the zombie apocalypse without Rick Grimes. We’ve known that star Andrew Lincoln will be departing the show after nine seasons of horror, and the moment is finally arriving...as heralded by a pale horse. No, seriously. Read More >>

The Walking Dead’s Latest Episode Only Made a Single Mistake

Hoo boy. So last week, The Walking Dead had its lowest ratings ever. And mean, ever – below that even of season one, before it became a phenomenon. Compared to this disaster, Rick’s plans for a peaceful future are in pretty good shape! But that’s only because “completely falling apart” is still better than “presumed dead.” Read More >>

Rick and The Walking Dead Are Holding It Together…for Now

Two good episodes of The Walking Dead in a row is not an unheard of occurrence, but it is auspicious. “The Bridge” continues last week’s strong narrative start as Rick, Maggie, and the others try to keep everyone united into one community, but a few cracks are beginning to show – and the same can be said of the TV series, too.
