Last night’s The Walking Dead mid-season finale left fans with a literal cliffhanger, seeing our group of survivors lead by Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) stuck in a cave and standing on a cliff over a see of walkers. According to Entertainment Weekly’s interview with showrunner, Angela Kang, when the show returns it’s going to pick right back up where it left off and it’s not going to slow down.
Season 10 has been the show’s highest rated season ever, according to Rotten Tomatoes, and fans received another stellar episode with the mid-season finale. According to Kang, “We’ve trapped a bunch of people in a cave full of walkers, so we have to tell that story. So, that’s definitely going to be a big part of when we pick back up,” Kang told Entertainment Weekly.
“Obviously, we have Negan embedded with the Whisperers, so we’ll continue to kind of tell the story that’s involved there. And then, not necessarily specific to the episode back, but just as a whole, at this point now some lines have been crossed, right? The border has been crossed by both sides. There have been these acts of war and so things are now escalating very, very fast. And we kind of get to the big conflict between the Whisperers and our people.”
Initial reaction to the episode show that fans were frustrated with Carol’s decision to pursue Alpha without regard to her safety or the safety of others, which is out of character for Carol. However, this continues to show that Alpha is one step ahead of everyone else with her spies and traps. Not only is Alpha (Samantha Morton) evil, she’s also highly intelligent. The Survivors are going to have to start to out-think her if they plan on winning any type of conflict with the Whisperers.
