WARNING – MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD   We all know that things can’t be calm for too long in The Walking Dead, and indeed, they have been for just that. Too long. For a show that prides itself on us never knowing who’s gonna bite the dust next, it’s been an inordinately long time since anyone

After last week’s bloodbath of a battle, things appear to have calmed down a little in Alexandria; weeks have passed, the walls have been rebuilt, and the townsfolk seem to have found some much needed peace and quiet. As the dulcet tones of Boston bring us into the everyday, there’s an almost pre-apocalyptic feel to

It’s been a long few months since we were last in Alexandria. Season 6A left us on one of The Walking Dead’s typical mid-season cliffhangers, with the team spread thin and walkers tearing down the walls of our newfound safe-haven. The future seemed uncertain for a number of key players, with Maggie laying unconscious atop
