The Walking Dead episode After promises to be even more dark and intense than the first episodes of season four, but it, and the rest of the 8 episodes to come, also will be more character-driven ones, according to Walking Dead Executive Robert Kirkman.
Robert Kirkman has stated that the characters are going to be more “separated” from each other, and that there will be “a lot of really intense, character focusing episodes.” He promises that the episodes will “focus on different groups at a time when they’re in their worst situation yet.”
In the statement that Robert Kirkman made about the next eight episodes of The Walking Dead, he also said that viewers will get to know the characters better and more in-depth, and he added that there will be some “really shocking revelations about what makes people tick and who they really are at their core.”
What will be the main focus of The Walking Dead episode After?
The rumors are that the first episode, After, will focus primarily on Sheriff Rick grimes and his son, Carl, who were seen walking away from the prison encampment where Rick was the primary leader at the end of the last episode, Too Far Gone, into a forested area. Rick was badly injured, and Carl was grieving.
Even though the Grimes are the center of the series, there have been several episodes in the past which have not had either Rick or Carl in them, or some that only just barely had either of them in them. While many of the rest of the episodes of season four might not have Rick or Carl in them, and they might focus on the fates of other characters, I’m guessing that ultimately Rick and Carl will still be the focus of the overall series by the end of this season.
Some of the questions that fans of The Walking Dead will want to have answered by the end of season four are how will the survivors get back together, will Carol rejoin the crew, and is baby Judith really dead? I doubt if any of these questions will be addressed in the episode After, though I could be mistaken in this assumption.
The Walking Dead will have episodes in which groups of just two to three main characters are focused on. It will definitely be interesting to watch the episodes in which Michonne and Daryl Dixon will be featured in, in particular.
Several new characters will also be featured in the upcoming episodes, including including Michael Cudlitz (Southland) as Abraham Ford, a favorite of fans of the comic book series.
What are you looking forward to the most about the upcoming episodes of The Walking Dead? Dou you think that Baby Judith will be eventually found alive, or that the zombies got to her, or that she was maybe shot during the episode Too Far Gone?
