All change in Walking Dead after mid-season break plus the return of a ‘dead’ character

February 5th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Walking Dead is back this week! Yay! But it seems we may see a very different beast this time out…

And it seems that the dead don’t stay dead in this zombie-filled world, according to TV Guide: “Don’t expect to see too many familiar faces since Rick and Carl take center stage when the AMC drama returns. While Rick heals from his beating from The Governor — whom you will see again — Carl will lose something very important to him. (No, not his innocence!)”

We’re not sure what exactly this all means.. what will Carl  lose (The side of his head, comic fans)? We’re not sure – his baby sister, perhaps ties in here? Who knows. And as for the return of THAT character? Well, we truly hope this is a flashback scene because otherwise the shark will be jumped…

Also, talking to EW, Michonne herself, Danai Gurira, talked further about the shift in dynamic for the second half of this season: “There is a lot of honing in on people and their experiences and their inner turmoil and outward trauma. There’s a lot more getting to know everybody. We’re not functioning in an ensemble-like way anymore because the group is fractured. What I love about that is that looking at it from a macro-perspective it is fantastic storytelling-wise because in the little research that I’ve done I learned that one of the key elements of war is displacement. People are caught up in the concern of where people are and what happened to them and not having any way of finding out. That’s such a rich, authentic component of what really happens in a war zone. So I think that’s really thrilling that’s going to be rippling through the back eight.”

As for Michonne herself: “Then the trauma hit and I think the big question is, will this clam her back up or open her up? It’s a question of going back to the old her or going on a different path. That’s the question sitting on her soul as she tries to metabolize the trauma that’s befallen her.”

The Walking Dead Season 4 continues this Sunday in the US and Monday in the UK.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
