A new clip from following Sunday’s mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead reveals the way the Saviors escaped the Sanctuary before enacting explosive vengeance on an unsuspecting Alexandria.
The clip sees Morgan scoping out the Sanctuary pinned down by walkers, lead there by the combined efforts of Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom.
Squads of Saviors with automated weapons open up fire on the flood of undead below, cutting them down effortlessly – their bullets produced by Eugene.
Morgan, communicating by walkie-talkie, informs the group: “They’re trying to produce a route,” he says. “They’re gonna obtain out!”
More Saviors rush out leading door, opening fire about walkers in close range and firing photos at Morgan. He narrowly avoids a flurry of bullets because they pierce his cover.
Rick results in the scene in the ultimate moments of show 8×07 after successfully recruiting Jadis and the Scavengers to his part.
Dispatching some walkers feasting upon felled soldiers, Rick retrieves a walkie-talkie.
“Snipers. Report in.”
“This is Rick Grimes. Will anybody copy?”
Rick grabs a sniper rifle and scales a drinking water tower. At the top, he appears through its scope – and then start to see the Sanctuary’s courtyard cleared, wasted walkers littering the bottom.
The Saviors have escaped.
Negan and his army retaliated against the allied communities in 8×08, launching a simultaneous assault and reapplying pressure on Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Kingdom.
Show 8×09, “Honor,” will discover the loss of life of Carl Grimes, who revealed a soon-to-end up being fatal walker bite in the closing occasions of the mid-season finale.
Carl sustained the wound in episode 8×06 while supporting newfound ally Siddiq lay walkers to rest.
Also departing The Going for walks Dead is Morgan actor Lennie James, who boards season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead.
That series, that may return with a period jump, is a continuation of Morgan’s journey.
“The trip we’re gonna see Morgan on expands his character, but continues to be part of this battle that he’s having – with himself and the world around him and racking your brains on how best he can continue with the punishment that he’s been given, which is to keep living,” James told TV Collection.
ComicBook.com debuted exclusive pictures from the mid-time of year premiere, depicting Rick and Michonne dealing with the fallout from Carl’s loss of life.
The Jogging Dead returns Sunday, February 25 on AMC.
