The Walking Dead Spoilers: Highlights Abound on the Feb. 9th Episode

Walking-Dead-409-01In less than two weeks, we'll finally get answers on Carl and Rick's whereabouts after getting their prison territory exterminated by the Governor. Question is, how depressing will the drastic aftermath affect the father and son? And with Baby Judith's location still unbeknownst to both of them, just how far will they go to find her?

The Walking Dead may have reached its most depressing arc to date. The survivors' have lost their one and only refuge, more and more loved ones are dying and they are forced to thrive when it seems hope had already been long gone. As the zombie drama/ mayhem returns Feb. 9th, what other new challenges await them?

Aside from the brief synopsis and photo we've posted earlier, here are some additional spoilers you can count on:

Not only does the Feb. 9 midseason premiere — titled “After” — further open a window to Michonne’s past, it also kinda serves as Carl’s official coming-of-age episode. And trust me when I say that you’ll never again think about discounting Chandler Riggs as just a good “kid actor” — his work here is exceptional.

Don't expect to see too many familiar faces since Rick and Carl take center stage when the AMC drama returns. While Rick heals from his beating from The Governor — whom you will see again — Carl will lose something very important to him. (No, not his innocence!)
