With only a couple days left until the next episode of The Walking Dead airs, it came to my attention that the German trailer for Episode 6, 'Always Accountable,' is quite different to the one that has been airing in the U.S., and in fact it gives away a lot more information about the episode than any of the other promos. So without further ado, let's check it out!
All right, so let's delve a bit deeper into that meaty piece of footage, and see exactly what's happening here:
If I had to guess, I'd say that this promo clip comes from the beginning of the episode. We already know from other promo trailers that this episode centers around Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham - and also that at some point, Sasha and Abraham get separated from Daryl. It seems as though that happens after the three get ambushed as they work on driving the walker herd away from Alexandria.
Who are the attackers?
As Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham speed off, we see a quick glimpse of the people firing at our group, but who exactly are they? It seems almost impossible that they're part of the Wolves group because, as we know from their attack on Alexandria, the Wolves don't carry guns, so does this reveal a new threat in the area? Was the group set up specifically to ambush the group from Alexandria, or did they mean to fire on someone else?
Where is Daryl going?
After falling off his bike, Daryl jumps back on but takes a different route to Sasha and Abraham, who get out of their car to annihilate one carload of attackers. Meanwhile a second carload of attackers is immobilized after they crash into an old bus. Unluckily for Daryl, there's a third car in pursuit as he roars off on a forest road.
Fortunately for us, thanks to the U.S. promo clips, we already know that Daryl and his bike end up escaping the third car (at least temporarily, anyway), and he hotfoots it into an area of burnt out forest. Unfortunately, it looks like something has happened to his beloved bike, as he's wheeling it, not riding it, and similarly it seems as though his walkie talkie is broken or out of range of anyone else. Uh-oh.
Sasha pulls Abraham into line
At the very end of the clip there's a surprising moment, when Sasha makes Abraham stop before he goes in to stab the attackers they just shot. Sasha reminds Abe that there could be more attackers nearby (which, she is correct about if the passengers of the second car are still alive after their crash), and the two take off on foot.
Abraham has been a bit of a loose unit as of late, and his behavior is increasingly becoming cause for concern. I wrote more about why we should be worried about Abe over here, and I think his actions would be an interesting thing to keep an eye out for in 'Always Accountable.'
'The Walking Dead' Episode 6, 'Always Accountable' will air at 9pm E.T. on AMC Sunday, November 15th.
