Daryl’s A Total Badass In This New Walking Dead Clip
While The Walking Dead has struggled to maintain a steady viewership this season, this week’s episode has all the makings of a great one.
We’re fast approaching the finale, after all, so it’s all but certain that the show’s creative players have one or two more twists up their sleeves before handing over the keys to Angela Kang, the long-running TWD scribe who’s primed to take over as showrunner for the ninth season. But before we get to that, let’s take a look at what’s to come, shall we?
Earlier this week, AMC dropped a new clip from this Sunday’s episode, and it’s sure to have all those Daryl groupies out there quite happy. Seen above, it mostly revolves around Simon and Dwight, with the latter proving himself to be quite a villain lately. Now that he’s the temporary head of the Saviors, it looks as if he’ll be leading Dwight and the rest in an attack on Hilltop. Thankfully, though, our heroes have Mr. Dixon on their side, who comes after them on his motorcycle, with an automatic rifle in tow.
For more on this week’s outing, here’s the previously-released synopsis, which hints that trouble’s right around the corner for the folks at Hilltop:
“Trouble arises when unexpected visitors arrive at the Hilltop and the community is thrust into action; heartbreaking discoveries are made.”
With the season rolling into its final handful of episodes now, things look to be coming to a head, as this description teases that some emotional revelations are on the way. We’re not sure what those could be at the moment, but we do know it’s likely that Carl Grimes won’t be the last major casualty this year.
After all, Seth Gilliam (who plays Father Gabriel) has promised that “more death” is on the way soon. Could it be Maggie who’s about to meet her end, seeing as Lauren Cohan’s negotiations with AMC have yet to come to an agreement that both parties are happy with?
Time will tell, but be sure to tune in this Sunday when The Walking Dead continues with the premiere of “Do Not Send Us Astray.”
