The first official trailer for The Walking Dead Season 6 dropped today at San Diego Comic-Con and it looks great. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out here:
Now, let's dive into what makes this trailer so good.
1. Morgan is back!
When we last saw Morgan, he watched Rick fire a bullet into a man's head. He seems to be a very different man than he was before, and it will be very interesting to see how the relationship between him and Rick plays out, now that Morgan feels that he "has to stop Rick."
In case you weren't paying attention for the past 5 seasons, this show is about zombies. But, as much as I love seeing Daryl Dixon decapitate some zombies with a chain, it does feel old at times. The season seems to pin the Alexandrians as the enemies, along with the walkers. I love that this is where the show is heading, at least for now, because in my opinion, the episodes with the group in Alexandria were some of the best.
3. Tree Zombie
No explanation needed.
4. Solo Daryl
Daryl Dixon has become one of the greatest characters on the show. He tends to be quieter now, but that doesn't take away from his awesomeness. In the trailer, it looks like Daryl will be on his own, at least for an episode. This will give his character more room to shine.
5. The Gore
If there's one thing you can count on The Walking Dead for, it's some good old fashion horror gore. This trailer gives us plenty of that, and it looks like the upcoming season might be one of the most violent yet.
6. Rick Freaking Grimes
Every character on this show has gone through some sort of transformation. Carl isn't a little boy anymore. Glenn isn't the innocent pizza delivery boy he used to be. Maggie isn't the sweet girl on the farm she was before. But, nobody on the show has changed like Rick Grimes has. If you go back and watch "Days Gone Bye" you'll be shocked by how different he used to be. He killed his best friend, lost his wife, watched his group get picked off one by one, ripped somebody's throat out with his teeth, almost got eaten by cannibals, and now he has been made a target by the people at Alexandria. And most traumatic of all, he shaved his beard. All jokes aside, he's been through a lot. Now he's unhinged, and waving his gun around at everybody. In the trailer, it looks like he's aiming his gun at Morgan, but I think that might be two different scenes spliced together. Back to my main point, he has become such an amazing character to watch, and I can't wait to see what he does this season.
Season 6 is set to premiere on October 11th.
Also in case you weren't convinced by my fifth point...
