Last week we saw Rick and the survivors arrive at the gates of the Alexandria enclave. As fans of The Walking Dead comics may know, this represents a major paradigm shift for the group moving forward. Now, how close the show hews to what happens in the comics is anyone’s guess. That said, Alexandria is sure to be vital to what happens on the show from here on out.
The official synopsis for the episode, which airs tonight at 9/8C describes it as follows:
“The group has a difficult time molding to a new lifestyle, forcing them to consider whether they can be the people they once were.”
The reference to a new lifestyle suggests that Alexandria will at least resemble what readers are familiar with, but if there are changes ahead, they will likely come in the form of decisions made by Rick and the survivors.
To help slake your zombie-fied thirst, here’s a quick look at what’s coming up tonight on The Walking Dead.
