Playing Dead: Sometimes There's Only One Way To Avoid 'The Walking Dead' [Spoilers]


Andrew Lincoln

It looks like that's the end of Alexandria as the eighth episode of 'The Walking Dead' - entitled 'Start To Finish' - wraps up the first half of season six and the final adventures of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company for the year.

The Walking DeadMore bloodshed in 'The Walking Dead'

As much as it was such a relief to discover that Glenn (Steven Yeun) had miraculously survived a walker ambush, unfortunately the team found themselves in need of another miracle when the walls of Alexandria became breached with the collapse of the church tower. And after that, things only went from bad to worse.

Odd Resolution In 'The Walking Dead' Renders Fans Both Pleased And Perplexed [Spoilers]


Andrew Lincoln Steven Yeun

Well, that was a bit of an anticlimax. 'The Walking Dead' season 6 left viewers hyperventilating a few weeks ago when they apparently killed off one of the best characters in the entire show, and now we've finally got a resolution, we're a little taken aback by the banality of it.

Steven Yeun in The Walking DeadHow does Glenn survive?

All season out stress levels have been rocking back and forth; is Alexandria safe or isn't it? When will the Wolves attack next? What happened to so-and-so? And speaking of the latter, that's been the biggest topic of conversation since the episode 'Thank You' aired: What happened to Glenn?

No More Glenn News, But 'The Walking Dead' Delivers Yet Another Shocker [Spoilers]


Andrew Lincoln

With 'The Walking Dead' viewers still sore about Glenn's death in episode three, some sort of explanation, or indeed confirmation, was needed. And it turns out we're still none the wiser come episode five: 'Now'. To make matters worse, everyone is totally losing faith.

Steven Yeun in The Walking DeadCircumstances surrounding Glenn's death are still up in the air

It seemed Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang had finally reached a safe haven at the beginning of the series in the form of Alexandria, but now the barricades have broken on that plan when the Wolves showed up and wrecked everything. They can't actually leave Alexandria without encountering the walkers and there's no word on what's happened to Glenn and the other members of his group. Episode four gave us some background on Morgan's (Lennie James) involvement in the whole series, but this is the first time since October that we've received an update on these troops' lives.

Thank You, No Thank You! The Latest Death On 'The Walking Dead' Breaks Hearts [Spoilers]


Andrew Lincoln Seth Gilliam Ethan Embry Steven Yeun Michael Traynor

Wow. So the creators of 'The Walking Dead' really know how to break our hearts. Regular viewers of the never-ending zombie series will be used to grieving by now, but the latest death has proved to be way too much for some fans.

Andrew Lincoln in The Walking DeadRick faces ever more difficult hurdles in this season's 'The Walking Dead'

We're only three episodes into 'The Walking Dead' season six, and already one of the best characters has seemingly been killed off. While everyone was hoping that the reckless and seriously dodgy Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) would be the next to bite the dust, producers have taken the story completely the other way and wiped off one of the only remaining members of the original cast. We can only hope that we haven't seen the last of him.

AMC Give Us A 'Walking Dead' Season 5 Peek [Photo]


The Walking Dead Andrew Lincoln

The Walking Dead season 4 ended in high-octane fashion: Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Carl found Terminus but were soon wise to eerie feeling that surrounded it. A gun fight followed, and the subsequent dance that ensued saw the gang reunited, albeit locked up in a metal box. 

Rick Grimes Walking Dead

In the photo, it looks as though Rick might be opening said metal box with a view to following through with his end-of-season words: “They’re screwing with the wrong people.” It was a solid end to a weird season, but one can’t help but thinking the whole ‘Rick’s back’ storyline has been done before, when he recovered from the loss of his wife.
