Season 6 of “The Walking Dead” has been airing some of its most intense episodes so far, with numerous conflicts, bloodshed, and deaths. The upcoming episode is not expected to change the general theme, with more dangers looming ahead of the characters.
In the previous episode called “The Same Boat,” one of the highlights was that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) shot Primo (Jimmy Gonzales) dead, who earlier claimed to be Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The survivors of Alexandria believed that their notorious enemy is dead, but in reality, dangers are still ahead of them.
In the upcoming episode of the show, titled “Twice as Fast,” the story is expected to pick up where it left off, after Carol (Melissa McBride) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) escaped from their kidnappers.
The official synopsis indicates, “Two separate groups leave Alexandria for supplies, and while both worry over the future of the community, they will face immediate danger.”
The summary seems normal and expected, at least in their setting, at first glance. However, the sneak peeks for episode 14 hint the possibility of more deaths ahead.
The promotional video shows Carol still pondering on the “kill count” and the people who stole the motorcycle of Daryl (Norman Reedus). It also shows some zombies looming in the area as they are trying to scrounge for food.
In addition, the clip shows Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Eugene (Josh McDermitt) being attacked by the Saviors. In the comic version of the story, the leader Dwight (Austin Amelio) killed Abraham by shooting him with a crossbow through his head. On the other hand, Eugene was fortunate enough to be spared his life, but not lucky enough as he was held hostage. Will this be the end of Abraham?
In an interview with Comic Book earlier this month, Cudlitz somehow hinted that it is a fate waiting for them. When the interviewer asked if it is a concern for him that given the trend, it is possible for him to have “something bad” in store, he said, “Oh, well, yeah. I guess but isn’t there trouble for everybody on the show? I feel like that’s not anything we can really be concerned about because if they’re gonna kill Hershel, they’re gonna kill anyone.”
“The Walking Dead” season 6 will air episode 14 on Mar. 20 at 9 P.M. EST on AMC.
