After last week’s slow plunge into the darkness that will surely fill Rick, we’re following the group of ASZ survivors led by Daryl and Rosita! Here’s our preview for “Dead or Alive Or”!
Last week jumped around a bit, and it seems like this Sunday’s new episode of The Walking Dead will be a little of the same. From stills, it appears we’ll have a Daryl-centric episode (the first in a long while), and we’ll see Negan and Eugene as well as Father Gabriel and Dr. Carson.
Daryl’s mission is fairly simple on paper, get the survivors to Hilltop and keep Judith safe. With all the noise that came with Negan’s attack on the ASZ, there’s bound to be plenty of walkers in those woods, too.
The cynical part of me looks at this paring of Daryl and Rosita as another way for Daryl to end up getting close to someone then losing them. The relationship could stay strictly friends or turn romantic, but the pattern is there. They like to make Daryl hurt, and if they get him close with Rosita, who’s a strong woman he already has a bond with, it will be crying Daryl time again when they kill her off.
At the Sanctuary, it seems like Negan is upset about something. I would venture to guess he found out about Simon’s trigger happy moment in trash land with Jadis, but it could be that he found out Eugene helped the good doctor escape with Gabriel.
I’m sure we’ll be in for some zingers from Negan, and he’s probably got some anger to work out since he was pretty shaken up about Carl’s death.
Finally, it looks like Gabriel is off his deathbed. He and Dr. Carson are making their way to Hilltop, too.
Soon, there will be a not-so-happy reunion where everyone gathers at Hilltop and mourns the loss of Carl. You can see from the sneak peak below that Enid is sobbing, so chances are, tomorrow’s episode will end with everyone finding out about his death.
You can take a look at the clips and stills below to get ready for “Dead or Alive Or”!
