It’s less than two months now until The Walking Dead returns, presumably bringing its patented message of hope and optimism, especially given that last season ended on such an uplifting and positive note.
So, we’re gearing up now, getting those trailers and teasers out the door, making sure that those of us who watch on Netflix and not AMC still remember that we’re missing out for a few months. Delayed gratification is a terrible thing. I mean, I’m an American, that’s just against the Constitution.
Men in gasmasks, and not even asking for their mommies. Ominous shadows under a door. Rick looking very worried. And sweaty. Five seasons, it’s like they’re going for the record for number of seasons without anyone bathing.
It’s not much to go on, but the screaming behind closed doors? The voice sounds familiar, so my money is on someone losing a hand - comic readers know what I’m referring to. Better late than never, right?
Walking Dead returns October 12th.
