The Walking Dead Fan Mailbag: Week of December 25th, 2018

Our Walking Dead fan mailbag is (finally) back for the holidays! Get some insight into the back half of Season 9 and more below!


Michonne in 9B


Eleven.


New Romance?


Since Henry has taken a lot of Carl’s comic storylines it makes sense that could also apply to his romantic life. In the comics, Carl eventually couples up with Lydia, the daughter of Whisperer leader Alpha, who we got a glimpse of in the Season 9B trailer. He also has a will they/won’t they flirtation with Sophia, who’s still alive in the comics. Although she’s dead in the show, it’s possible Hilltop teen Addy could fill those shoes.


New Love for Aaron?


Speaking of romance, don’t hold your breath for a new Aaron romance. Talking to a crowd at Walker Stalker Con New Jersey 2018, Aaron actor Ross Marquand said, “I feel like at this stage in the show and in the apocalypse, I don’t know if finding love is a really critical thing at this point. I feel like we’re all like, ‘You know what? It’s not working out for the lovers, maybe we just get through each day and eat our food and plant crops and maybe we make that our focus.’” He added, “He’s already got baby Gracie, he’s got to take care of her,” Marquand said. “I feel like that’s where he’s putting all his unrequited love.”


Daryl Romance?


Neither, Yumiko’s with Magna thank you very much. What’s that? One more?

Don’t count on it.


Grimes Family Update


Since it’s the holidays, we’ll tell you that you haven’t seen the last of Michonne, RJ, and Judith in a scene together.


More Babies?


Maybe not Christmas, but February? It’s possible we haven’t seen the last baby on The Walking Dead…


New Series Regulars?


Good question! Can’t confirm anything now, but expect more Fear Season 5 news in the coming months (they’re currently filming).


Second Vs First


While the first half of the season settled us into the new world, the second half focuses primarily on our next villain group The Whisperers, the skin-wearing baddies who blend in with walkers. As the official synopsis of 9B states, “A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out.” AKA our heroes will be in more danger than ever.


More Michonne and Carol?


That’s a fair assumption.


Carol vs The Whisperers?


Carol’s done a lot of traveling this season – from the museum to the Sanctuary to the Kingdom to Daryl’s camp to Hilltop. It’s possible we’ll see her in other locations in the back half, but expect to mostly see her at Kingdom.


New Lil’ Asskicker?


So many questions! So we can’t answer all of them because we don’t want to give too much away, but we can assume Rick would be proud of Daryl’s involvement in his family. Even though he spent years in isolation, we might learn more about his relationship with the Grimes fam in the post-Rick era.


Henry and Daryl Scenes?


Since Carol entrusted Daryl to look after Henry at Hilltop, it’s safe to assume they will have more scenes together in the second half.


Where’s Dwight?


We can’t tell you, but Dwight actor Austin Amelio seems pretty confident his character is just fine. “He’s not dead,” Amelio said during this weekend’s Walker Stalker New Jersey panel. “That’s all I can say…he’s alive. He’s alive in the world somewhere…I think where he said he was going to go, to try and find his wife and just (be) a lonesome traveler on the road.”


Changed Negan?


Even though Negan escaped in the Mid-Season Finale, it’s safe to say he’s a different man than he was seven-and-a-half years ago. You’ll see.


Maggie Back?


Unfortunately no, we’re done seeing Maggie this season. But Showrunner Angela Kang has indicated she has plans for her in Season 10 (assuming we get one).


Rosita Feeling Better?


Yes, Rosita’s feeling well. Expect to see her doing better in the back half.


More Ezekiel?


There was so much story to tell in the first half that some characters (like Ezekiel) got less screen-time than the others. With the fair coming up it’s FAIR to say we’ll see more Zeke in the second half.


Zeke Backstory?


The Walking Dead doesn’t typically go too far in depth with backstories but it’s probable we could learn a little more about his pre-apocalyptic life sometime down the line.


Where’s Rick?


You’ll find out in the movies!


Rick Movies


There are a lot of details that still have to be sorted out for the Rick Grimes movies, but for now the plan is to air the films on AMC.


Daryl vs Beta?


Define “win.”


Oceanside Justice?


Actually, the Oceanside gals won’t be punished for killing the Saviors at all. They’re still very much allies of Alexandria, Kingdom, and Hilltop (even though the bond connecting the communities has soured). Maggie and Daryl barely flinched at Arat’s execution, so no justice will need to be served (remember how Carol dealt with the Saviors when SHE last encountered them?)


Carol & Judith


Maybe!


The Rick Tapes?


Unfortunately they’re currently MIA. Not necessarily lost forever, but don’t expect to see them again anytime soon.


More Time Jumps?


Yes, Michael Cudlitz and Angela Kang have both confirmed we’ll learn how Michonne and Daryl got their x-shaped scars, aka a flashback. Stay tuned.


Michonne Pregnancy Flashback?


Maybe! This Michonne time jump could have been from any time in the six-year time jump, but it’s possible she could be pregnant with baby RJ in flashback.


Gracie and RJ?


RJ and Gracie are pretty far apart in age but most of the Alexandrian children are pretty close, so to answer your question, yes.


Aliens??


Yes and no.


Cleaner Daryl?


Nah.


Dance Off?


God, I hope so. And for the uninitiated, Angel Theory, who plays Kelly, is ALSO an amazing dancer. Exhibit A:


Walking Dead Reindeer?


Dasher = Carol
Dancer = Kelly
Prancer = Dog
Vixen = Rosita
Comet = Magna
Cupid = Ezekiel
Donner = Daryl
Blitzen = Michonne
Rudolph = RJ


That wraps up our final Walking Dead mailbag for 2018! Thanks for sticking with us and look forward to MANY more mailbags next year. Until then, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
