On Friday, January 17 Entertainment Weekly posted the official trailer for the second half of the fourth season of "The Walking Dead," the AMC drama which will return with the final eight episodes of the season this spring. The trailer, which includes no time jump, reveals how the prison survivors are coping after the attack on the prison and no longer having a safe place to be.
The new trailer is thirty seconds long but manages to cover almost all the major characters as well as reveal the danger of the walkers is as real as ever. The trailer is accompanied by a slower version of the song "Bad Moon Rising" which foreshadows all the trouble the characters will face in the remaining episodes.
There are several shots of the prison in ruins with walkers going through all the open gates proving that The Governor destroyed the prison as a safe haven forever. Many of the episodes will feature the characters individually since they are all scattered around after the battle. Daryl and Beth seem to have made it out together but Beth is upset over losing her father and Daryl keeps them on the run so they can both stay safe.
Carl and Rick investigate some abandoned houses until they find a safe one. Episode nine is supposed to focus a lot on Carl and how he has changed in the aftermath of the attack on the prison, and the previous sneak peeks have hinted that he might be saving Rick in his grief over Judith. There is also a voice over of Rick saying that "it won't be easy" for the group but they are "survivors" and they can make it.
Tyreese appears to be on his own in the woods getting attacked by walkers, although some of the footage looks like it was from earlier episodes. Michonne is also shown taking out a group of walkers with her katana. Maggie is shown looking distraught but there is no sign of Glenn, who is still very weak from the illness.
The remaining eight episodes will feature new characters from the comic books like Abraham Ford, Dr. Eugene Porter and Rosita Espinosa. New locations will also be introduced as the characters search for a new safe place. The trailer shows that the rest of the episodes will have more death, blood and drama now that everyone lives are at risk that much more. "The Walking Dead" season 4 second half returns on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
