The Walking Dead Fan Mailbag: Week of February 8th

The Walking Dead Mid-Season Premiere is quickly approaching so let’s get some fan questions answered.


More Michonne?

Much much more than the first half of the season.


What About Her Daughter?

Telltale may not have known that Elodie would re-appear in the comics since that storyline was written for the game years before the current one in the comics. However, Robert did advice Telltale during their spin-off so one could assume it was all part of the plan.


Simon vs. Jadis

Good catch! Yes, the trailer teased a tense meet-up between Simon and Jadis that may or may not end well. If some of her people were wiped out, one could assume she’d want to fight for Rick. Then again, who could she fight with? Her dead people? Maybe she’ll want to go away. Maybe.


Rick’s Humanity

Let’s jump into some Carl questions! Rick will absolutely struggle with Carl’s loss. It will change him and give him a much different outlook on life in an apocalypse, but it will not completely break him.


Carl and Judith

Yes, he absolutely will. Keep tissues on deck.


Carl’s Hat

We’ll let the picture from the last question answer that for you.


Undead Carl?

Thankfully, no. But he’s not going to be looking so hot in the Mid-Season Premiere.


More Fear Crossovers

Like Rick and Madison? That will be a long shot. But Morgan will definitely spend plenty of time with the main characters in Fear Season 4. And maybe he won’t be the only one from TWD to ever do it.


Clementine Crossover?

Unfortunately not. Robert Kirkman quelled crossover rumors during the 2017 Walking Dead SDCC panel. “No,” Kirkman said. “I like that if you want to play The Walking Dead video game, you get Clementine, and you get a unique experience. I think that it makes The Walking Dead more special that the comic has an experience, and they’re very linked…you’re just gonna have to write some fan-fiction, I’m sorry.”


Caryl?

Daryl and Carol will definitely share some scenes in the back half of Season 8, but don’t hold your breath on a romantic connection.


How About That Helicopter?

Maaaaaybe…


How’s Aaron?

Aaron’s good, but this half-season won’t be easy on him.


Negan Getting Soft?


Actually, yes.


More Violent?

It would be hard to out-do the violence in the first half, which claimed upwards of 200 lives. So no, the back half won’t be as violent. Instead, it will be more strategic.


More Lucille?

There will definitely be some light head bashing by ya girl.


Rapid Fire Questions


1. They only renew seasons once a year so we can only officially confirm Season 9
2. Several! We have Telltale’s final season, the ongoing mobile games March to War and Road to Survival, and later this year a console game called Overkill’s The Walking Dead (trailer below).
3. Doesn’t seem likely. Robert Kirkman recently said on the Walker Stalker Cruise, “No, that would be terrible…That’s not a storyline I like.”
4. There will definitely be a connection to Fear the Walking Dead via Morgan, but we can’t tell you how.


Recipe Legacy?

Ooo fun question! But sadly, no.


Thanks for writing in! We’ll be back for another fan mailbag next week – so stay tuned.
