Near the end of this teaser for “The Walking Dead’s” return to AMC, the Governor (David Morrissey) says to Rick (Andrew Lincoln), “We have a lot to talk about.”
Talk, however, is not this promo’s primary interest. When we left off, Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Merle (Michael Rooker) were about to be forced to fight in the Governor’s arena, Michonne (Danai Gurira) had just stabbed the Governor in the eye and Rick was maybe losing his grip on reality. So while they may indeed have much to discuss, action is front and center here.
Amid images of guns being cocked, hatchets being swung and bodies being stomped, you hear someone say “We’re going to war.” Talk, as the saying goes, is cheap.
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC on Feb. 10. What do you think of the new teaser?
