Yesterday, AMC released the midseason poster for The Walking Dead. Behold!
If you’re into the comics at all, you know that Rick isn’t likely to lose an eye. (Unless the showrunners take us for a little ride away from the original story!) But, I love how the poster art cuts his face in half to hide his left eye! (Not so for the larger graphic that we used as a featured image, but you get the idea.)
Retribution and revenge is sure to be on the slate for the second half of this season. You knew it was coming, but the use of “An Eye For An Eye” definitely confirms it.
Let’s review a little bit, shall we? Michonne re-killed The Governor’s (TG) dead daughter, Penny; TG found out that Merle lied about Michonne’s death; Andrea will probably be stupid and want some kind of comeuppance for Michonne’s actions (re-killing Penny and stabbing TG in the eye with a shard of glass); Glenn and Maggie were held and tortured in the bowels of Woodbury; Rick, Daryl, and Oscar (RIP…such a shame AMC will only allow one major black guy on the show at a time. Since Tyreese and company arrived at the prison, Oscar had to be offed.) rescued Glenn and Maggie; some Woodbury folks were killed during the rescue.
And so much more! Check out my recaps for more goodies.
TG is obviously going to reveal his evilness. I mean, we all knew he was a bad seed, right? Walker heads in fish tanks, slaughtering soldiers, doling out death sentences…tends to make me think he’s a pretty bad dude.
But, there was always something holding him back from complete evil: Penny. His undying hope that his dead daughter could somehow be saved or taught to be un-walker-y kept him in line. Now that she’s gone for good, there will be nothing standing in the way of TG’s complete spiral downward.
I CAN’T WAIT!
The Walking Dead returns Feb. 10 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
