When we last saw the former inhabitants of the prison, they were in some pretty dire situations. Those who survived the onslaught from the Governor and his newly found minions are now spread out of the town. Those who escaped on the bus may not even be in the town anymore. I think it is safe to say that they are in probably the worst possible position since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse.
However, according to Creator and Executive Producer Robert Kirkman, things may be looking up for Rick and the gang by the end of the season.
Kirkman told TV Guide how he sees the course of the remainder of the season heading.
“We started the season pretty hopeful and pretty optimistic,” Kirkman said. “We’ll open our last half of the season pretty bleak and we’ll move them to something a little more hopeful by the end.”
As you may already know, the theme for the second half of the season is “Don’t Look Back”. There are so many things that this could mean. Something that the show has done a lot of this season is force viewers to speculate. They give you just enough to form a conjecture, but never enough for you to have all the facts. Then again, they can’t give everything away, now can they?
We are just about a month away from the return of The Walking Dead. Now that everyone has gone their separate ways, we will see who can really survive on their own, and who will be dining on a healthy died of brains and intestines sometime soon.
The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on AMC.
