The Walking Dead’s upcoming episode Alone, which first airs in the US on Sunday night, explores questions centered around what has proven to be the biggest threat our group faces – and that is people. The episode tackles two big questions that have been raised around this issue in past episodes. One – is it better to better to keep hope, even if that comes with risk? The second – are there still good people left?
One of the things I particularly appreciated was a deeper look at Bob and Sasha. Those two characters have remained mostly unexplored up until this point, and I really enjoyed getting to know them better and seeing their relationship deepen. Their conversation continues along the thread that they started earlier – whether they should be striving for more than to survive just to survive. Both actors Sonequa Martin-Green and Lawrence Gilliard Jr. deliver strong performances and succeed in further rounding out their characters.
Here are few teases to leave you with:
- One member of our group makes a surprising alliance
- There’s an event that happens that has the potential to be a major turning point for a character
- There’s a romantic moment
- A new everyday object is turned into a zombie-killing weapon
Alone airs Sunday, March 9 at 9 pm, on AMC in the US, and on Monday, March 10 at 9 pm, on Fox and Fox HD in the UK.
