The latest episode of The Walking Dead aired tonight and continued Rick and his allies’ all-out war against the Saviors.
Titled “The Damned,” it followed a bunch of different plot threads as the survivors continued their sieges of the Saviors’ various outposts, with Rick and Daryl on one mission, Carol and Ezekiel on another and Aaron and the Alexandrians on the offensive elsewhere. Meanwhile, Morgan, Jesus, Tara and others tackled the satellite station.
It wasn’t quite as exciting as the premiere, but the plot is certainly moving along nicely and we’re excited to see where things go from here. On that note, we now have the first promo and sneak peek for next week’s outing, “Monsters,” which you can check out above and below.
The official synopsis for the episode was released a few weeks ago and gives us further clues as to what it might deliver. In particular, it teases that this installment will deal with the tricky ethical issues that rise up when fighting a war. Good people being forced to do terrible things out of desperation is pretty much The Walking Dead‘s MO, so this looks like a textbook slice of the show – which is a good thing.
“Conflict with the Saviors leads to unintended consequences for the Hilltop, the Kingdom, and Alexandria. Morality proves tricky in wartime.”
Just what are these ominous “unintended consequences” caused by the fighting, though? It doesn’t take a genius to work out that there could be some more deaths to come, but we’ll just have to wait and see. All we know is that, despite ratings hitting a 5-year low, The Walking Dead looks to be back on fine form again.
Be sure to tune in when the show returns to AMC on Sunday, November 5th!
