On Wednesday, the first four minutes of “The Walking Dead” Season 6, Episode 9, was released. The second half of the season premieres Feb. 14, Sunday night on AMC in the US. Showrunner Scott M. Gimple is of the opinion that there will be big changes and new elements.

[Spoiler Alert] The episode titled “No Way Out” shows Sasha Williams (Sonequa Martin), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) facing danger and uncertainty. “The Walking Dead” fans can expect answers to a lot of questions such as what will Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group do with the knowledge and power.

Greg Nicotero and Robert Kirkman also discussed Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Alexandrians. The preview clip revealed Daryl, Abraham and Sasha being stopped on the road by a group of men with guns and motorcycles, undoubtedly Negan’s goons. Negan has a gun pointed at both Abraham and Sasha.

It has been reported that the group is coming back to Alexandria to rebuild the community.

“This isn’t the prison, and ‘Oh, we gotta move on from here and find another place. This is something different. And from there, there will be other things that expand their world in new and terrifying ways,” Kirkman had told Entertainment Weekly.

According to Gimple, Rick and his group have extremely deep knowledge and skill set to survive. The second half of “The Walking Dead” Season 6 answers questions like how they can create a future, their responsibilities and what they do with the power and skill set.

In the second half, there will be uncertainty and danger but also hope and optimism, writes Inquisitr.

“The Walking Dead” star Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene, also recently revealed that the Season 6 finale was the toughest for her.

“I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It’s one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn’t want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let’s put it that way,” Cohan said.

“The Walking Dead” Season 6 second half premiere may be a completely Greg Nicotero episode. Most Nicotero-directed episodes have amazing special effects, lots of zombies and of course blood. Fans may get all of these in this upcoming episode, writes IGN.
