Entertainment ‘The Walking Dead’ Cast Teases Going Up Against the Commonwealth in 11C
Walking Dead's Season 11 Midseason Premiere Title & Synopsis Revealed
AMC reveals The Walking Dead's season 11 midseason premiere title and synopsis, teasing the race against time for the show's protagonists.Inspired by the comic series written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead is the story of humanity's fragile struggle to live in a world overridden by hordes of undead zombies. Initially following Rick Grimes' (Andrew Lincoln) growing group of survivors, the series has gone from the ruins of Atlanta, sinister farms, and abandoned prisons, to exploring conflicts between the many new factions formed in the world following the fall of civilization as we know it.
There are only eight more episodes of. And as the show works its way towards the November 20 series finale on AMC (somewhat ominously titled “Rest in Peace”), we can’t wait to see what twists and turns the zombie apocalypse show brings us in its final installment.
But first, where did the drama leave off when 11B concluded in the spring? Well, in short, there’s trouble brewing at the Commonwealth, and our favorite survivors are scattered both behind and outside of the walls of the previously preconceived paradise. Outside of the perimeters, there’s Daryl (), Aaron ( ) and Father Gabriel ( ) — who last we saw had royally angered Commonwealth baddie Lance Hornsby ( ) — in addition to those who haven’t quite made it into Commonwealth yet, and have been living on the fringes, like Maggie ( ) and Negan ( ).
How Far Into The Future Does Tales Of The Walking Dead Episode 4 Happen?
Tales of the Walking Dead episode 4 is set far into the zombie apocalypse's future, but when does Dr. Everett and Amy's story take place?Tales of the Walking Dead episode 4 takes place in an era when zombies occupy the Dead Sector - a massive chunk of land surrounded by a gorge 40ft deep. The dead (homo mortus) are studied by Anthony Edwards' Dr. Everett, who's more comfortable hanging around the dead than the living. Everett comes across Amy, a young woman who crossed into the Dead Sector from outside and reveals things are so bad beyond the trench, humans now want to repopulate the zombies' land.
Marquand teases that Aaron and Gabriel are “still on the lam” after the events of 11B’s finale. “The veneer of diplomacy and kindness between Aaron, Gabriel and Lance is completely gone now,” he adds. “So, they’re on the run, but they’re also open to resolving it in a peaceful way if that’s possible. But I don’t think any one of them is kidding themselves that that’s an option at this point, so they’re just going to have to run and gun it.”
And though they are pros at “running and gunning it,” the two-faced Hornsby, pursuing them as traitors to the Commonwealth, is not one to be trifled with. “He’s trying to just keep it together,” Hamilton notes. “He’s not trying to sow the chaos, he’s just doing what he has to do. But things will get a little hairy. He’s definitely put to the test.” In true defense of his character, Hamilton jokingly adds: “It seems like everyone’s against him, I don’t know why.”
Tales of TWD Confirms Why the Commonwealth Will Never Work
The Commonwealth is one of the most advanced communities in the TWD universe, but AMC's Tales of the Walking Dead explains why it might not last.The Walking Dead universe is set years into the apocalypse at this point. As time goes on, people have become masters at taking out walkers and society has slowly rebuilt itself with new communities. Dr. Everett from Tales of the Walking Dead has a different take on humanity's attempt to take back their world -- one that proves that even an advanced place like the Commonwealth will fall eventually.
In the 11C premiere, “Lockdown,” Daryl and Negan will rush back to the Commonwealth to prevent Hornsby from getting to their families and close friends. But, inside the Commonwealth walls, it isn’t going any better. The very-in-love but also very-in-danger Eugene and Max (and ) are sowing a bit of their own chaos to take down Commonwealth Governor Pamela Milton (Laila Robins) and her spoiled adult son, Sebastian (Teo Rapp-Olsson), who has caused a ruckus of his own. Commonwealth citizens are protesting and demanding justice for the many crimes he’s committed — particularly the ones that have gotten Commonwealthers killed.
“Eugene’s doing this weird dance of cautiously, nervously moving forward to expose the Miltons in a way that they’re held accountable,” McDermitt says. “His desire to save and help people, his friends, and the community — he understands that that’s putting Max and others in a difficult position, but I think he knows what’s right and what he should be doing, and so I think that’s what’s driving him.” Adding: “He’s committed to making the Commonwealth a better place to live.”
The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Reveals Near-Fatal Extent of His On-Set Injury
The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus says the concussion he suffered while filming the show's final episode was far worse than initially reported.Reedus spoke to Entertainment Weekly for the outlet's Fall TV preview issue and revealed the accident was far more severe than reported at the time. The actor described the experience as "horrible" and said, "That whole ordeal for me personally was terrifying. I thought I was going to die.
And thankfully, Max, still serving as Pamela’s executive assistant, is all in. “This is definitely the most exciting thing that she’s had to deal with in a very long time,” Bingham says of Max and Eugene’s plotting to take down her boss. “Being a little mischievous is very fun. And partaking in any of these crazy stunts with Eugene, they don’t seem so crazy because she’s head over heels in love, and she just knows that it’s going to help everybody. She knows what the Miltons are all about. She knows what her brother [Michael James Shaw’s Commonwealth Army General Mercer] has had to do to serve. She’s definitely aware of all of that [and] she takes it up another notch in the next couple of episodes.”
Just how they’ll do that is yet to be seen, but it seems like between a rogue Hornsby, protesting in the streets, and more, the Miltons will have plenty to overcome to maintain their hold on the urban community. And let’s not forget reporter Connie (Lauren Ridloff) is also coming for them. Let’s just say, we think the Commonwealth will put up a good fight in these final episodes, but it sounds like the Miltons might be toast pretty soon.
