So now we all know how Morgan acquired from Virginia to Texas to affix Worry the Strolling Useless. And it turned out to only be an entire lot of strolling.
Within the season 4 premiere of the collection, the spinoff to the wildly profitable The Strolling Useless, former TWD collection common Lennie James made his debut. And very like the present itself, his character made a contemporary begin for himself after secluding himself in Jadis’ trash heap house within the last moments of TWD‘s season eight finale, which preceded the premiere.
After some visits from buddies Jesus (Tom Payne), Carol (Melissa McBride) and even Rick (Andrew Lincoln) himself, attempting to persuade the tortured soul to return to the group, he took off for elements unknown, finally touchdown in Texas, the place he befriended Garret Dillahunt‘s gun-slinging John and Maggie Grace‘s stoic journalist Althea, themselves newcomers to the collection as effectively.
And as we watched them forge a bond as they fought off a gaggle of Savior-esque baddies, the present did one thing actually surprising by conserving any of its pre-existing characters out of the motion. If it wasn’t clear to you that it is a model new day on Worry the Strolling Useless but, this premiere made it crystal.
In truth, the writers took that spirit of the surprising even additional within the very last moments as our new trio stumbled on a woman on the street. As they tried to supply her assist, we realized it was Alycia Debnam-Carey‘s Alicia, showing injured and warning of “unhealthy folks right here.” Earlier than Althea may determine what was occurring, Alicia had a knife to her throat as Strand (Colman Domingo), Nick (Frank Dillane) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) appeared from out of the woods, weapons drawn.
Did the present simply flip its authentic heroes into its new “unhealthy folks”? As a result of in that case, think about us totally invested. What different present within the historical past of TV has had the balls to do one thing like that? We’re undecided we are able to consider one and that is what made this premiere so thrilling.
