The past two weeks of “The Walking Dead” haven’t been too kind to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his fellow survivors.
Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) is missing and presumed dead. T-Dog (IronE Singleton) is very dead. And Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) died during an emergency c-section to save the life of her daughter.
Without any means of a genuine emotional release, Rick went on a zombie killing spree… like you do. Sanity and Rick also seemed to part ways right up until he heard a phone ringing deep within the prison.
This week’s “Walking Dead” preview scene seems to find Rick in better shape as he checks in with his son, Carl (Chandler Riggs) as well as Glenn (Steven Yeun), Daryl ( Norman Reedus) Oscar (Vincent Ward), Hershel (Scott Wilson) Beth (Emily Kinney) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan).
You may notice that Rick doesn’t mention getting the phone call. And if the caller’s identity is the same from the original “Walking Dead” comic book, then it’s very bad news for Rick….
AMC’s synopsis for the episode offers a few clues about the various storylines.
Rick returns to check on Carl, while the gang prepares to make an ammo and formula run. Clearing out the lower levels of the prison are also on the agenda. Despite seeing the Walker Gladiator Arena, Andrea grows more infatuated with the Governor. Now that they girls have gone their separate ways, Michonne makes a decision about what to do next.
Oh Andrea (Laurie Holden)… will she ever figure out that The Governor (David Morrissey) is bats*** crazy before she makes a really bad decision?
All signs point to “NO!”
“The Walking Dead” season 3 staggers onward this Sunday on AMC!
