No, we're not going to talk about the shocking events from last night's Walking Dead here. Consider this your own personal safe zone.
The trailer for the upcoming episode of The Walking Dead churns out a statement that's usually in the form of a question—and the finality of a period mark instead of the usual query gives the tagline "you can't escape your past" (in lieu of the more hopeful "can you escape your past?").
In "Here's Not Here," the fourth episode of The Walking Dead's sixth season, the character who must face the consequences that the tagline implies is Morgan—and it looks like viewers will get a little more of Morgan's back story, which will hopefully let fans know where the bo-staffed, tormented fan favorite has been since his last surprise appearance in season 5.
It also looks like "Here's Not Here" will be the 90-minute stand-alone episode that was teased earlier this year; in an interview with HeyUGuys.com, Lennie James, who plays Morgan, cited that the ep would not only play out on screen, but do justice to his character:
"It's going to be an intense ride. It's very much going to be in keeping with the mythology of 'The Walking Dead.' But is a very different kind of episode. Hopefully it's one that the fans will like."
The official synopsis for the episode is just as ominous as its accompanying trailer:
"A new face and setting are introduced. With all that's gone on in the apocalypse, can people be trusted?"
As to who the new face is—could it be a new character entirely, or perhaps a side of Morgan that we've just never seen?
And maybe the question in the synopsis—"can people be trusted?"—is really this: even if you can't escape your past, can you still believe in a future?
AMC's The Walking Dead airs at 9 p.m. Sundays on AMC. Watch the trailer for "Here's Not Here" in the video clip below.
