Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead filled fans in on what’s been going on with Darryl (Norman Reedus), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) since the trio went missing while leading a massive walker herd away from Alexandria.
The trio were separated by a barrage of gunfire from unknown assailants. While Sasha and Abraham had some one-on-one time after they found safety(not counting the zombie that hung out in the background the entire time), Darryl was busy meeting new people by getting jacked, then making friends with said new people, then getting jacked again by the same people (RIP for now Darryl’s crossbow and motorcycle), before the three were reunited.
Norman Reedus took some time to chat with The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly about the new group that was introduced last night, what’s ahead for the rest of the season before the break and whose voice we didn’t hear calling for help at the end of the episode.
On whether or not the new group introduced last night is Negan’s group The Saviors (via THR)
“I don’t know, mayyyybe! [Showrunner] Scott Gimple doesn’t put things in storylines and scripts that don’t come back. He’s had stuff plotted for so long; every little thing means something in the future. Everything. You can bet money on it. There’s no wasted screen time.”
On what’s in store for the next two episodes (via THR)
“There’s a lot of shit coming down. I’m completely blown away by the caliber of what we’re doing right now. I left set [the other night shooting the season finale] at 7 a.m. and talked to Andy on the phone for the entire drive. We’re overly excited; it’s so good. When we first started this and people said, “It’s a zombie show,” it’s not a zombie show right now. We have zombies but it’s totally not a zombie show and everyone will know it. I’m really excited about this episode; it really starts the barometer of skyrocketing straight up into space. It’s a full-throttle show from here on out and this kicks it off. It’s full speed ahead from here.”
On whose voice called for help in the end of last night’s episode (via EW)
“I will say that voice is not Glenn…It’s not Glenn. But it’s probably somebody at Alexandria with all we know that’s happening there.”
