Why is Carol making cookies again? Who are the foes now? Angela Kang gives us an update on the series’ return.
There’s a lot to work out when The Walking Dead resumes for its second season 11 episodes on AMC Feb. 20 (and a week earlier on AMC+). When we last saw them, Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) were just being attacked with rocket-powered arrows from a medieval weapon known as a Hwacha by zombies who had gotten into Alexandria’s waters, and Eugene’s (Josh McDermitt) group was still getting acclimated to the new Commonwealth
What can we anticipate when things start to get back to normal?That’s exactly what we asked showrunner Angela Kang about. What will happen to our heroes in their new surroundings? Is Carol once again going undercover? What are the foes now? We fired our own rocket-fueled inquiries at the showrunner.
We departed with a cliffhanger when Leah (Lynn Collins) fired off those rockets.What do you have to say about how things progress?
Angela Kang: When we return, we’ll be nearly at the conclusion of the episode finally. So we have the absurd device firing arrows, our folks are at odds with the Reapers, and they must resolve this problem on their mission to find food and preserve their people. So that’s one, and then we also have our group at Alexandria who are just trying to keep their composure during the storm.The return of the Commonwealth is still a ways off, and these stories are about to reach their dramatic peak. And, as a result of this, it becomes increasingly essential to the narrative.
Some of the integration of Alexandria personnel into the Commonwealth has already been seen in the teaser. What can you say in terms of how that assimilation will go?
I believe there will be folks who are true believers and go, “This is fantastic,” as we do with each new connection between our people and the new community. Then there are always our doubting ones, searching for what could go wrong, and I believe that it is true. I think that the integration is very smooth for some and very bumpy for others.
In the trailer, we see Carol (Melissa McBride) with cookies for a second time. Is that to say she’ll be going little ol’ me undercover again, as she did when she first arrived in Alexandria?
Carol is unquestionably playing a unique and crucial part in the Commonwealth. When she’s baking alongside Carol, it’s a little bit like guarding her real talents since they all had to perform a task that was comparable to what they’d previously done.To everyone else, she was just a housewife who didn’t do anything unique, but we now know a lot more about Carol.
We’ve had the Governor and Woodbury in the past. We’ve already seen Negan and the Saviors. We’ve had Alpha and the Whisperers already. Who is the adversary on this program as we enter 11B?
There will be certain information revealed over time, therefore I don’t want to go into too much detail about any particular individuals and how their tales conclude. But, while I will acknowledge that the Commonwealth is unique in terms of bureaucracy, there is also a lot of it. And I think what a lot of our people are trying to figure out is how this society works. How do you communicate with those in command if you have a problem?
They are frustrated, kind of like in the comic book tale, as our people enter a more organized civilization that is larger and has taken many of the old world’s structures but has adapted them and amplified certain aspects. At various stages, the society may be a pressure point for them as they are trapped in a very stratified, class-based environment. There are also other dangers that exist in the world. They are dealing with a lot of issues.
