Warning: The following contains spoilers for Sunday’s Season 11 Premiere of The living Dead. If you’d rather watch first, read later, finish in an orderly fashion.
When it began its 11th and final season on Sunday, The living Dead went out of their way to ensure that even the most jaded, all-seeing viewer got a crush on something new – and I don’t just mean potential zombie straphangers. No, in “Acheron, Part I” we got a glimpse of hikers doing something they’d never done before (at least not in my memory…not massively). The episode also reverted a Big Bad to evil form, revealed the nightmarish bureaucracy that is the Commonwealth, hinted at the fate of a long-gone character, and left not only Maggie but my (our?) favorite character in danger. Read on and we’ll cover all the details.
‘WE NEED FOOD – LOTS – NOW’ | As the hour wore on, Daryl, Carol, Maggie and a slew of our regulars barged into Fort Connors to pick up MREs for an overcrowded and malnourished Alexandria. There they found all the recruited walkers… napping. Literally counted out, making ZZZs. And I think we’ve seen zombies die before, but these guys were about halfway through a certain episode of Fear the walking dead. Anyway, once the gang had, ahem, awakened the dead, grabbed as many snacks as possible, and returned to Alexandria, Daryl Dog hugged Judith and RJ warmly, and Maggie exchanged glances with Negan before Hershel told him Cole was in for a surprise. had. before her: a few lost members of their old group, Duncan, Agatha and Frost. Fighting began to break out nearby over grub — and more were to follow. In a week, the closet would be empty, Gabriel warned the directors. Luckily, Maggie knew of a new place to score some vittles: the headquarters of her old group, Meridien. Sure, it was currently infested with the Reapers, who had slaughtered most of her friends, but it was well stocked. “We just have to take it back,” she said. Finally, Daryl, Gabriel, Alden, Negan, Dog, Gage (remember him…?) and C. Thomas Howell (whose Hilltopper is apparently called Roy) joined Maggie and her old crew on what Rosita called “a suicide mission.” “. .”
Meanwhile, in the Commonwealth, as Mercer (Michael James Shaw) pointed out, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess were put through Level I assessment, which consisted of an endless series of questions about everything from their old zip codes to the number of bowel movements they took. take a day. (I’m not making that up.) After hours of this, Ezekiel snapped, asking a quiet Mercer if he was the guy in charge (he was) and guessing he’d been an “a-hole beat cop” before, which the reason was why “all they had to do was give you a pumpkin colored spacesuit, and you’re power-tripping with your head up your own ass again.” Ezekiel might have dug in even deeper had he not been caught in a coughing fit, the result of his, er, harmless goiter. Then Eugene urged his friends to put their faith in Stephanie, who had warned that her peeps were extremely careful. But after seeing a fellow inmate being taken away for “reprocessing,” even Eugene said, “OK, I have to go.” Thanks to Princess eavesdropping, they knew exactly how to swipe some stormtrooper uniforms. With the exit in sight, however, they passed what Ezekiel called the Wall of the Lost — a bulletin board full of photos of people to be marked “for expedited review and admission.” Among them was a flyer looking for a man named Heath – possibly Corey Hawkins’ character (not seen since Season 7)? Our protagonists didn’t notice that as much as a note from Yumiko’s brother, Tomi. If he was there, she… Well, she had to stay. plot twist.
