The Walking Dead season 6, episode 1 may be the biggest episode in the show’s history.
Update: Read our recap of tonight’s episode!
That’s not an exaggeration. The sheer scale of the season 6 premiere is a sight to behold and should make people very excited about what lies ahead. What’s more, this is an episode that lives up to The Walking Dead being cable’s most-popular drama.
Hypable viewed The Walking Dead’s season 6 opener in advance, and we loved everything we saw. The premise: Rick and the people of Alexandria — including his long-time friends and a couple new faces — are on a gigantic mission right out of the gate.
Over the course of the 90 minute premiere you’ll enjoy a deeply layered episode teasing several evolving relationships and lots of brewing trouble. You’ll also see Rick and the crew handle one of the biggest groups of walkers this show has ever depicted.
We already shared a few teases about tonight’s premiere, but here are a couple more to whet your appetite:
– There’s one important reference to the wolves in this episode that may signal an upcoming fight between two characters.
– You may want to ship Rick and Morgan by the end of this episode. They are just that good together.
– Have a protein bar ready. Preferably one that’s peanut butter-flavored.
– Also have a pen and paper ready. There are so many storylines in this episode that it’s going to be hard to digest them all after you finish watching! Tonight’s episode of The Talking Dead should really be at least 3 hours to help deal with everything that happens.
