The Walking Dead season 9 is about to go in a very different direction. The closing moments of The Walking Dead season 9, episode 4 left Rick Grimes stuck between a rock and a hard place, but replace ‘rock’ with a rebar sticking through his side and ‘hard place’ with a swarm of the undead waiting to eat his guts. What comes next, according to a new The Walking Dead preview could be one giant love letter to the show, filled with cameos and callbacks.The preview for next week – confirmed to be Rick Grimes’ final episode – sees Rick, inexplicably, get back on his horse and ride to back to Georgia, where The Walking Dead began. If only things were that simple.Along the way, a few familiar, obscured faces are going to be cropping up. Shane (already confirmed to be returning to the show) looks to be one of them, and the mound of bodies scattered at Rick’s feet could lead to a couple more cameos, including the late Scott Wilson as … [Read more...] about Want to know what happens to Rick?

Geordie shore season 9 episode 8
It’s not long to go now until we have to bid Rick Grimes farewell, and judging by The Walking Dead season 9 episode titles just released, it could be slightly sooner than we first imagined. The first half of the season – all eight episodes – now have a title (except one, but let’s get to that in a moment), a writer, and a director, and it all quite plainly charts the course for the season ahead.We already had a fair idea that Rick would leave in the first six The Walking Dead season 9 episodes, but we can now (probably) zero in on the exact episode it’ll happen in. Courtesy of AMC (H/T Newsweek), the opening episode titles have been revealed:A New Beginning – Writer: Angela Kang, Director: Greg NicoteroThe Bridge – Writer: David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, Director: Daisy MayerWarning Signs – Writer: Channing Powell, Director: Dan LiuThe Obliged – Writer: Geraldine Inoa, Director: Rosemary RodriguezWhat Comes After - Writer Matthew … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead season 9 episode titles are out – and two in particular hint at exactly when we’ll be saying goodbye to Rick
Believe it or not, The Walking Dead is losing its leading man Rick Grimes sooner than you think. Sob. Andrew Lincoln confirmed his departure from the long-running zombie series at San Diego Comic Con 2018 and it’s looking likely that it’ll happen during The Walking Dead season 9, episode 5. While it’s pretty hard to imagine the show without Rick, the bigger question is how it’s going to happen? While death by Walker seems like the most traditional way out for the former Sheriff, it’s doubtful AMC will go for something so obvious and with new showrunner Angela Kang promising a bold “new show” and “new narrative” this season, we might see Rick bow out in a more surprising way. To stem the tide of grief we’re feeling over his departure - and to keep us going until the new season begins - we’ve tried to predict how Rick will leave The Walking Dead with our top five theories on his exit. Read on and decide which you think is … [Read more...] about How will Rick leave The Walking Dead season 9?
If you’ve seen the latest episode of Westworld season 2 (if not you really shouldn’t be here because major spoilers are on the way), I don’t need to tell you how incredible it is. Episode 8, Kiksuya, finally puts a Native American character at the center of the show as we explore Akecheta’s story, as told by himself to Maeve’s daughter. It really is a beautifully painful tale that equally matches the brilliance of some of Westworld season 1’s episodes and weaves the role of the Native American Hosts - which have been largely ignored up until this point - into the series’ main storyline. Retconning their involvement in the birth of the park, the events of season 1, and the current happenings does raise some questions about possible inconsistencies though.Akecheta awakens after Arnold makes Dolores kill all the Hosts in the original park, and after a long journey which spans multiple awakenings and attempts to save his lost love, he finally … [Read more...] about The big question we have after watching Westworld season 2, episode 8
After a couple of fairly lacklustre episodes, Westworld season 2 returns to first season form with a beautifully-told story about a character - and a people - which have been woefully underused so far. Kiksuya mostly ignores the central cast and the main storyline to focus on the Native American Hosts who have appeared throughout both seasons, but have never been the focus of the show. Episode 8 tells the painful tale of Akecheta and his people, from their birth during the park’s beta testing right up until Dolores’s rebellion, and it’s a captivating and emotional ride which will remind you of the dizzying highs of Westworld season 1. Superbly written and incredibly well-acted, Kiksuya proves once again that season 2 is at its best when it ignores Dolores in favour of new characters and worlds we’ve yet to explore.Note: From here on out there are specific plot spoilers for Westworld season 2, episode 8 - Kiksuya.Given the shocking lack of development of … [Read more...] about Westworld season 2 episode 8 review: “An hour of beautiful, painful storytelling”
