The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 2 Recap: “We Are the End of the World”
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) walk in darkness. They are free. They bathe in blood. They are free. They love nothing. They are free. They fear nothing. They are free. They need no words. Well, except for all the words they just wrote, and all the words they just recorded in this week’s edition of the Walking Dead podcast here on Post Show Recaps. Other than that! Who needs words?
In the past, Alpha and Lydia meet Beta while seeking shelter from a herd of walkers — a herd that just fully, disturbingly eviscerated a poor woman, in one of the series’ grossest deaths in recent memory. In the present, Alpha contends with discord within her own camp, in the form of the Whisperer whose baby fell into the hands of the Hilltop last season. Enter: Thora Birch as the woman’s fellow whispering sister, who earns the name “Gamma,” and steps up as a big power player within the feral community.
Josh and Jess dig into all of those storylines and more, engage in listener feedback, and dive into the spoiler-filled comic book zone as well. Comic book spoilers kick in around the 47 minute mark.
About The Walking Dead …
Based on Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s comic book series of the same name, The Walking Dead is the zombie movie that never ends. Set some years after an apocalyptic event causes the dead to rise from the grave, Walking Dead centers on an ever-changing group of survivors who do battle with the walkers, do their best to bring civilization back from the brink, and fight one another as conflicting agendas crop up among the living.
Angela Kang serves as executive producer and showrunner, with a sprawling cast including Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Melissa McBride as Carol, Christian Serratos as Rosita, Josh McDermitt as Eugene, Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel, Ross Marquand as Aaron, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan.
