Caution: This post may contain spoilers from episode 9×07 of The Walking Dead entitled, “Stradivarious”
Michael Cudlitz, previously Abraham Ford on The Walking Dead, returned to direct this week’s episode, which introduced more of the Whisperers, and the new group of people are learning to know better.
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead also featured several characters we’ve been wondering about since the 6 year time jump after Rick’s swift exit, including a scene with Jesus and Tara at Hilltop.
Jesus is temporarily taking over as Maggie has run off with Georgie, perhaps looking for a better life for baby Hershel-who is now about 6. Tara tells him that he needs to start treating it as a real role, as Maggie still isn’t back.
We recently got to speak with Alanna about the episode, and she said she thoroughly enjoyed getting to be directed by her old cast mate, Michael Cudlitz.
That was so fun. Him and I got to do a couple scenes together. He did a great job. He’s like a dad to me. He’s just a phenomenal director. It was nice to have him back in our world. There are some really great scenes he does, and the pace is different. It’s really cool.
What did you think of the episode featuring his directorial debut?
The Walking Dead airs its mid-season finale on Sunday at 9 PM ET on AMC and will return for the second half of season 9 in the new year, and you can catch Michael Cudlitz on The Kids Are Alright on Tuesday nights on ABC.
