AMC ran a teaser last night for The Walking Dead’s return that showed off a bit of new footage from upcoming episodes, with a big surprise at the start.
As you can see in the video, the teaser shows the crew checking out a large gate.
Is this the walled compound Noah spoke of in an earlier episode, presumably the show’s version of the Alexandria Safe Zone from the comics? Or is it just a residential area meant to throw us off? It could go either way, but it’s telling that Noah seems to be opening the gate.
It’s likely that some of this footage is from the mid-season premiere “What Happened and What’s Going On?” It would fit with the official description of the episode, which is:
After all the recent trials the group has faced, a slight detour might prove to be the solution they’ve been looking for.
At any rate, the return of the show is now less than a week away on Feb. 8, so these questions will be answered soon.
