The Walking Dead Fan Mailbag: Week of June 28th

Welcome to our weekly mailbag! This week we tackle a WHOLE bunch of Season 9 questions and more. This is your mailbag for week of June 28th, 2018.


All Out Restoration

We’ll actually get a bit of both. While some of the communities will experience more growth, each one still has a lot of work to do. You’re on to something with Georgie’s plans, as well. Those civilization blocks she gave to Maggie will definitely play into the rebuilding of the Hilltop and beyond.


Survival Over Fighting?

Adding onto the question above – yes. We will see a lot more rebuilding than the typical altercations between communities. Our heroes will also be on the road a lot more than recent seasons.


Negan Returning To the Comics?

For those of you who don’t read the comics, Negan is finally out of the picture…for now. After getting kicked out of Alexandria, Negan lives on his own for a while before getting confronted by Maggie. She finds him in a barn and holds a gun to his head. Negan begs for death but Maggie gets her closure and decides to let him live out the rest of his miserable life. So will we see him again? Robert Kirkman has said in a few Letter Hacks that it’s possible, but indicated if we did it wouldn’t be anytime soon.


Biggest Threat To Rick?

Rick will face a lot of challenges when we return for Season 9 this Fall. As for your question, we saw in the Season 8 Finale that Maggie, Daryl, and Jesus were very much against Rick’s decision to save Negan – and that resentment will continue to cause problems in Season 9.


Michonne/Judith

That’s a pretty solid assumption.


Tainted Meat!

Great question! As mystifying as the walker virus can be, we do know that for some reason it doesn’t affect animals. Whether they carry a natural immunity or it just applies to humans, you typically wouldn’t contract the virus from eating tainted animal meat.


Richonne Update

It’s really adorable – Richonne fans won’t be disappointed.


More Ezekiel?

King Ezekiel will chart a different path than his comic counterpart in Season 9. That’s not to say the show version will be completely different, but you will be in for some surprises.


Daryl/Aaron

Hey, All Out War tends to separate people. But yes, there will be some Daryl and Aaron scenes to help you get your fill.


More Daryl?

We’re beginning to notice a lot of these questions are some form of ‘will we see more of _____’ this season?’ But that’s OK. Good news – Daryl will also play a bigger role than last season.


Maggie’s Baby?

You’ll see.


Negan

It’s just like Rick explained in the Season 8 Finale as he stared Negan down in the infirmary – he wants Negan to watch them thrive without him. Rick wants to prove Negan didn’t actually save anyone, and that life without him isn’t only possible, but much greater than life with him. Of course, Rick is in the minority of people who agree this lesson is worth it.


Aaron and Enid

In a way, yes.


Dwight and Sherry

Unfortunately not.


Jadis/Anne Integration

Father Gabriel, surprisingly enough. And let’s get in the habit of referring to Jadis by her given name, Anne. I know, it’s tough for us to adapt to as well.


Anne and Negan

Nope, sorry to disappoint.


Get to The Choppah

 

rickheli

You absolutely will.


Story or Gory?

Definitely story, but you’ll also get plenty of gore in the process.


Switching Sides?

No, Brandon’s “I am Negan” forehead tattoo is a non-starter for other communities welcoming him in.


Release Dates!

 

netflix

We don’t have definitive dates yet, but typically the latest Walking Dead seasons hit Netflix early September while the new seasons come out sometime in October. Keep it here for official dates!


Sum Up The Season

Time.


Season 9 Soundtrack

 

lennon

LOVE this question. If Season 9 were a song, from what we’ve seen, it would be some combination of “Brand New Day” by Morrison, “Just Like Starting Over” by John Lennon, and “Live and Let Die” by Guns ‘N Roses.


That wraps up the mailbag for the week of June 28th! Make sure to leave YOUR burning questions on out Twitter thread next week for a chance to be included in the next edition. Until then!
