If I were trapped in a car that was surrounded by angry, hungry walkers and I had to pick any two Walking Dead characters to have my back as we attempted to make a break for it, Daryl and Michonne would be at the top of the list. I'd take Merle too, if he were available. The latest teaser for the upcoming fourth season of The Walking Dead gives us a quick look at such a scenario, as Daryl and Michonne face off against a herd of hungry zombies. I'm thinking they'll get out of it alive. Not so sure about the man in the back seat.
Am I just blanking on the identity of the man who says, "What the hell do we do?" or is he maybe one of the Woodbury newbies? I recognize him from the previously released trailer, but from last season.
AMC's been sharing quite a few teasers for The Walking Dead lately, and with a little more than a month to go until the series returns, that's not all that surprising. Previous teasers include the one with the woman begging for help, and another that features a great Daryl moment. Because we'll never get tired of seeing Daryl play the hero, whether he's saving a little kid or just saving himself.
And then there's the new poster, which shows us Rick walking alone, as Rick often does. In this case, he's standing at the prison fence, which has been torn open.
It's an indication that the fourth season will have the characters remaining at the prison, at least for a little while. There's always a chance that things could go bad and they'll have to leave the semi-secured location. In fact, the broken fence seems to indicate that security is an issue.
It should be noted that the car scene revealed in the latest teaser is a snippet from the previously released Comic-Con trailer, as is the scene where Daryl saves the kid. Still, it's exciting to catch some of the more intense moments in smaller doses, but if you want a bigger look at the upcoming season, check out the trailer below, which clocks in at over five minutes and gives us even more clues about what's ahead…
The Walking Dead returns Sunday, October 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC.
