The Walking Dead Season 4 Midseason Preview Teases Chaos To Come

Last nightís episode of The Walking Dead left things off in a very uncertain place, but Iím thinking thatís a good thing for the series, especially when taking into account the above preview, which gives us a few teasy glimpses of whatís to come when the AMC zombie drama returns from the winter hiatus in February. Spoilers (obviously) if you havenít seen last nightís mid-season finale ďToo Far GoneĒ!

ďToo Far GoneĒ left off with Rick and Carl separated from the rest of the group. A mass exodus of the prison has taken place, once again uprooting Rickís ever-changing group of survivors as they head off to seek out a new safe haven. Again, I canít say Iím disappointed that theyíre moving on from the prison. As good as it is for the characters to have some place to call home for a little while, the dreary backdrop only grew drearier this season when a deadly flu arrived and began taking lives. They beat the flu. Itís time to leave. Of course, the exodus isnít a voluntary situation. The prison looked like it was in pretty bad shape at the end of last nightís episode, after the Governor convinced his new group to attack the prison with a tank. They still lost and they destroyed the prison in the process. Great job, Governor.

An exit from the prison means a return to the wild where things appear to be as nightmarish as ever, as walkers grow even more plentiful and survivors grow even more desperate.

Looking at the above preview, itís not easy to put together much about the state of the group when the series resumes next February, but we do get to see some of the lead characters dealing with whatever drama and danger is ahead. That includes Carl raising his gun. And is that him yelling ďWake up!Ē? Itís hard to tell. We also see someone hanging from a noose, and Tyrese slashing someone ó a living person or a walker? Again, itís hard to tell.

Will Rick and Carl find their way back to the group? Or are we going to see them separated from their people for the rest of the season? And that sort of applies to the rest of the characters we see in the preview as well. How much of the group made it onto the bus? And what happens if the bus runs out of gas or breaks down? Will this whole group stay together or are people going to start to break off and go their own way? Given that there are still a lot of characters we donít even know yet, itís possible some of the random Woodbury extras could separate from the characters weíre better familiar with. Weíll have to wait and see.

Hereís a look inside last nightís mid-season finale:
