What will happen in The Walking Dead season 9, episode 9?
The Walking Dead season nine, episode nine, will pick up from where episode eight, Evolution, left off.
The midseason finale ended with the death of Jesus (played by Tom Payne) but is he really dead?
In episode eight, the new villains called The Whisperers attacked Daryl (Norman Reedus), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Magna (Nadia Hilker), Aaron( Ross Marquand), Michonne (Dani Gurira) and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) in a graveyard, apparently killing Jesus in the process.
WILL THE WHISPERER’S RETURN FOR SEASON 10?
The synopsis for the upcoming episode reads: “The group unmasks a disturbing and dangerous new threat. An escaped captive revisits his past.“
Luckily, AMC has released two teaser trailers ahead of tonight’s episode, one of them being the opening scene.
The minute-long clip shows Eugene ’s rescue party surrounded by Walkers and Whisperers in some very dark fog.
The episode begins with Jesus lying on the ground next to dead walkers.
The surviving members surround Jesus and prepare themselves for oncoming Walkers and evil Whisperer’s to attack.
It is then when they hear the Whisperer’s speak for the second time.
The anonymous Whisperer says: “You die now” as they walk towards the group.
Judging but the clip, it looks like it is going to be a brutal battle to get out alive.
Daryl and Michonne take on the Walkers with a crossbow and samurai swords.
Just as the pair prepare to turn to follow their group, one of the Whisperers posing as a Walker leaps into action, charging at Michonne with a machete.
They manage to escape through a gate but the Whisperers are seen making their way through the same escape route.
It looks like in the second half of season nine, The whisperers are going to be a huge threat to the survivors.
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 10 RELEASE DATE, CAST, TRAILER, PLOT
The official trailer does not give too much away about episode nine.
The video opens with Aaron, Yumiko, Michonne and Daryl returning back home from battle with the Whisperers.
It also looks like Jesus might really be dead, as the trailer shows a funeral taking place.
A voiceover then says: “But now we know, there’s a new enemy.”
The trailer also reveals the two leaders of the Whisperers, Alpha (Samantha Morton) and Beta (Ryan Hurst), so it looks like they will feature heavily in the midseason premiere.
The Walking Dead’s showrunner Angela Kang shared some details from the second half of season nine.
She explained to Entertainment Weekly: “We pick things up pretty quickly on top of where we left off, and our people are there and they obviously are gonna have to fight their way out.
“But they will make yet another strange and shocking discovery along the way within the episode, and the story kind of unfolds from there.
“We’ll also get to see what exactly is going on with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), now that he’s stepped out of his cell.”
