The Walking Dead has now been going on for nine seasons, which is a rather remarkable run. The new season has seen the introduction of The Whisperers who have proved to be a rather scary bunch. They are led by an individual called Alpha (played by Samantha Morton), and she has already proven to be a ruthless leader. However, fans are keen to know what will happen to Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), who seems to be emerging as the new leader of the Hilltop Colony.

The actor recently spoke about his future on the show, and he wanted to reassure fans that he’s in it for the long haul. “I started the show, and I’d just like to bookend the show,” he told Metro.co.uk this week. “I’d like to be there when it ends.

“The Walking Dead” is slyly getting some egg-cellent updates. Since the slog of watching Daryl (Norman Reedus) crying and being tortured for a whole episode in Season 7, the AMC drama has come a long way. Sunday’s episode again provided some interesting turns as Henry (Matt Lintz) is caught by the zombie-skin-wearing Whisperers after following them to try to get back his new boo, Lydia (Cassady McClincy). Lydia’s mom and leader of the Whisperers, Alpha (Samantha Morton), wants to end all this nonsense by having her daughter kill Henry (meeting your significant other’s parents can be so awkward). But before that happens, Daryl and Connie (Lauren Ridloff) lead a group of walkers to attack the Whisperer camp. In all the chaos, Daryl, Connie, Henry and Lydia escape, which will probably make their next meeting with Alpha a bit uncomfortable. With all that going on, it was easy to miss that “The Walking Dead” also made a couple subtle changes to … [Read more...] about ‘The Walking Dead’ Secretly Slipped In New Easter Egg
After a tedious mid-season premiere, the latest episode of The Walking Dead was 47 minute-long proof that the back half of season nine could be brilliant television. The six-year time jump, while an unexpected and entirely welcome adrenaline shot, has presented the show with some flaws. For instance, it’s quite frustrating to see a large amount of screen time handed to newer cast members who, in the six years we didn’t see, have become key players in the community. But fortunately, when season nine flies, it soars. This is evidenced in “Omega”, an episode designed to introduce us to the woman behind the Whisperers, as well as seemingly confirming the long-standing theory that it's set int he same world as Breaking Bad.

The Walking Dead season nine finally returned after a very long mid-season break. The show left viewers demanding to know more as they had just introduced The Whisperers. They are a group of survivors lead by an individual who goes by the name of Alpha (played by Samantha Morton). The last episode saw her and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) go head-to-head, and people have now been wondering whether he’s finally going to step up and be the leader he was always meant to be.

The Hilltop community have been lacking a leader ever since Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) left the show. Hilltop is now in dire need of a new leader after they’ve been dropping like flies. Gregory (Xander Berkeley) was executed, Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) left, and Jesus (Tom Payne) died after he was stabbed in the back by one of the Whisperers. Could it be … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 9 spoilers: Daryl Dixon to become the next leader of Hilltop?
The Walking Dead season nine is back in full swing after its mid-season break. The show has just introduced The Whisperers as its new villains, and they are lead by Alpha (played by Samantha Morton). She’s already proven herself to be a ruthless leader, yet her actions in the last episode might have been a step too far. The last episode, called Bounty, saw Alpha allow a newborn child to be killed by walkers after it was making a lot of noise.

Lydia (Cassady McClincy) was held prisoner by the Hilltop survivors, and there was a very tense prisoner exchange scene between the two groups. Yet, could the other Whisperers want to overthrow Alpha after her rather erratic behaviour? Her actions might … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 9 spoilers: Alpha to be overthrown in a leadership battle?
