There has been a plethora of The Walking Dead information to go over, so let’s get to it!
First and foremost, there is a new trailer out for season 4 that was released at Comic-Con! Check it out:
This trailer has everything! There is finally a purpose for Carol…. to teach the kids in the prison group! Someone… not a walker, but a person… attacks the group’s home. That person is also seemingly feeding the walkers rats and leading them to the prison. There also seems to be more walkers than ever before, and almost too much for the group to handle. And the most surprising part of all for me is that the Governor is not in the trailer! WHAT? I want to know why. I want to know how he will be re-introduced. I want to know where he is! It is also implied that the walkers are evolving. Evolving? That is terrifying. We will have to wait and see!
This trailer also revealed the premiere date: Sunday, October 13th at 9:00pm. Trust that we will be back here that night letting you know how it was!
Next up: Welcome, new guy!!
The Walking Dead has a new character named Bob Stookey played by Lawrence Gilliard Jr.. Lawrence Gilliard Jr. was on the Wire with his new Walking Dead co-star Chad L. Coleman who plays Tyreese, another somewhat new character. This could make for a very exciting addition! Or, like many new characters, he could just die… (RIP Big Tiny!) Again, we will have to see.
Here’s a segment from Entertainment Weekly online:
[box_dark]Played by Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (The Wire), the TV version of Stookey is a former Army medic. But unlike the comic version, this Stookey does not hail from Woodbury. Instead, he is found by Daryl Dixon about a week before events pick up in season 4. “His backstory is not entirely the same as in the comic and the novel,” explains new showrunner Scott M. Gimple. “I think he’s seen things go bad over and over, and winding up in this stable place doesn’t shake him from his experience. He struggles with that.” “You can see there’s something deeper and darker that’s going on with this character, just from the first episode,” says Gilliard. “We don’t really know what it is. We just know he’s got some issues that he’s dealing with.”[/box_dark]
Speaking of Entertainment Weekly, here are the 3 collector’s covers of the magazine!
