With just a few weeks left until the season 10 mid-season return, The Walking Dead has revealed new details about upcoming episodes 9 and 10’s synopses.tv
In the mid-season finale, Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Jerry (Cooper Andrews), Magna (Nadia Hilker) and sisters Kelly (Angel Theory) and Connie (Lauren Ridloff) journeyed into a cave to locate the walker horde, but a trap had left the team surrounded by the undead.
The synopsis for the ninth episode titled ‘Squeeze’ reads (via ComicBook.com): “In the mid-season premiere, our group must figure out how to get out of a precarious situation.”
‘Squeeze’ comes from writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and is being directed by Michael E. Satrazemis, ComicBook.com reports.
Johnson-McGoldrick has been on board over the last five seasons, while Satrazemis made his first debut by directing season 4, episode 14 ‘The Grove’.
“Our group must defend Alexandria from a threatening, outside force,” reads the synopsis for episode 10 ‘Stalker’.
‘Stalker’ is written by Jim Barnes and directed by director Bronwen Hughes. Barnes previously wrote season 10, episode 3 ‘Ghosts’, while Hughes is making his first directorial debut on The Walking Dead.
Elsewhere, Danai Gurira’s Michonne has already been written out of the series, with the show previously teasing a dramatic image from the mid-season premiere, which might very well be part of Michonne’s exit storyline.
