‘The Walking Dead’ Preview
Here’s a quick recap of where we left off with spoilers for Season 10 Episode 8 of The Walking Dead.
In the last episode, things went very, very wrong.
First, we meet a new character, Virgil. He’s trying to get back to his family after he was caught trying to steal some supplies. He saved Luke’s life at a nearby library, but that wasn’t enough to give him a free pass. Michonne was very suspicious of him, especially after just learning that Siddiq died. (And yes, I’m still heartbroken over Siddiq’s death too.)
When Virgil was looking for supplies, he messed up Oceanside’s security, which made him even more suspicious. Michonne learned that he lives on a fortified island. He said he’ll take Michonne there and supply her with a lot of weapons as payment for his debt to Oceanside, so he can get back to his family. These weapons can make a difference in their war against The Whisperers. Michonne agrees to go with him and has a heartfelt goodbye with Judith. But who’s taking care of RJ?
Rosita caught Dante when she went to check on Coco. He attacked her but she kept her ground, fighting back for both her and her baby. Sadly, Siddiq reanimated during the fight and Rosita had to kill his zombie form. She beat Dante up, immobilizing him for capture.
Dante was sent by the Whisperers to spread paranoia and to contaminate the water. He even killed Siddiq’s patient to mess with the community’s doctor, and he was painting “Silence the Whisperers” to stir up more trouble. Gabriel later kills Dante and burns his body, which helps him and Rosita mend some fences between them.
Gamma, meanwhile, tells Aaron that if she can see her nephew, she’ll show him where Alpha keeps her herd of walkers. Carol, Daryl, Aaron, Connie, Kelly, and Magna set out on this journey to find the herd and to find Lydia. Daryl doesn’t trust Carol right now though, because she’s still haunted and not functioning well.
Sadly, the herd isn’t there and Gamma might have been lying. Carol sees Alpha in a clearing and chases her. It soon becomes clear that this was all a setup, but everyone falls right into it. They follow Carol (who’s chasing Alpha) into a cave that’s full of walkers. And that’s where the episode ends.
