We’ve got episode summaries and a teaser from upcoming February 12 return of “The Walking Dead”, (covering all except the return episode “Nebraska”). “Walking Dead” was renewed for a third season and bumped up to 16 episodes.
“The Walking Dead” tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.
Recently the producers promised an uptick in action. We will resolve these story lines,” said Gale Anne Hurd. “Certainly people earned that resolution, earned that reveal. The farm has allowed us to develop the characters because it’s not a constant threat. They’re not always on the run. The dynamics among the members of the group are beginning to fester and beginning to build to a climax.”
