The Walking Dead 3.2 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to series newcomer Nichole Beattie (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Rubicon,” “Prime Suspect”).
What says AMC?
“After a traumatic event, a life hangs in the balance. Complicating matters, the group must also deal with a potential threat to their new surroundings.”
Does the episode start with a flashback?
The episode starts exactly where last week’s episode left off, with panic and surprised prisoners.
Is there a chance in hell Hershel’s horrific amputation will keep his zombification at bay?
That would be telling. I will point out that Scott Wilson’s name isn’t in the new main titles.
Are those prisoners glimpsed at the end of last episode the “potential threat”?
Do Andrea and/or Michonne catch up with Rick’s group this week?
They do not appear in this week’s installment.
What of Merle or The Governor?
They are absent this week as well.
What else is AMC not telling us?
Somebody gave those prisoners a gun.
“This is your lucky day, fellas.” “Don’t open that.” “All we do is run.” “We have plenty of cadavers.” The plentiful zombie combat. The hotness of Lori Grimes and the Greene girls. The shot of Hershel’s abandoned limb near the end of the teaser. Rick’s judicious use of the machete. The cuffed zombie.
What’s not so good?
No Merle or Michonne this week. Carl continues to annoy. And to ascertain his level of zombification, more effort should have been made to keep Hershel forming words.
How does it end, spoiler-boy?
“We’re awful grateful for what you did.”
9 p.m. Sunday. AMC.
