The Walking Dead trailer dropped and it may be the best one yet. In the matter of 30 seconds, the flashes of imagery leave us with so many questions as to what will happen in the back half of Season 10 when The Walking Dead returns on February 23. It also has us questioning who dies in the first episode back from the mid-season break.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!
First, let’s take a look at the new Walking Dead trailer and then discuss a few of the important things we can take from it.
There may be no more amazing image than this one, it’s Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as a Whisperer. We knew that Negan had infiltrated Alpha’s group but now he went full-on skin wearing. Negan is gaining the trust of Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the Whisperers.
Next up, for the first time ever, we get a truly classic image of a walker (or what we can assume is a walker) coming up from the grave. However, this grave is in Alexandria and whose grave might that be? That’s right, it’s Carl’s!
Finally, we get a tease of who survived the cave. We can see from the footage that Carol (Melissa McBride), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Kelly (Angel Theory) have all survived. However, we don’t see Jerry, Connie, or Magna. Their fates will be determined when we see the new episode.
Connie, played by Lauren Ridloff, we know has gone on to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be portraying Makkari in the new film, The Eternals. The film is set to be released on November 6, 2020. We’ve seen Danai Gurira move back and forth from The Walking Dead to a Marvel film but that doesn’t necessarily mean that things go well for Ridloff’s character.
The new episode is called “Squeeze” and the official description gives us very little detail, “The collected communities are reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them.”
The Walking Dead Season 10 has been a critical success with both critics and fans. Season 10’s viewership scores are the highest ever, as Angela Kang’s success as show runner continues.

The Walking Dead returns on February 23 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
This is post P-90x. I’m saying I watched the videos. I’m not saying I participated. Born in my mom’s basement, I’ve stayed there to embody the stereotype. One day I will rise up… to the main floor of the house.
