Entertainment Weekly will be revealing our latest The Walking Dead covers on Wednesday, Sept. 20. To lead up to the unveiling, we are posting an exclusive TWD item every day. (See Andrew Lincoln talking about the Old Man Rick twist here.)
First, we brought you the exclusive first image of season 8, a reunion shot of Daryl and Carol. Then, we gave the second exclusive image of season 8, of Rick and Maggie armed for battle. Now we’ve got a few more exclusive new Walking Dead images to whet your appetite for the new season.
First up, it’s Norman Reedus once again perched on his motorcycle as Daryl Dixon. Daryl had a bit of a rough go of it last season (which is putting it mildly). But here, he’s got himself a motorcycle and a crossbow, so how bad can things really be?! I suppose that depends on how things go in the all-out war against Negan and the Saviors.
Next up is a shot showing two-thirds of the new leadership triumvirate. Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and his pet tiger Shiva came to the rescue right as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was about to watch Negan put Lucille to Carl’s head. Good timing! Now, the two will be working together (along with Maggie and the Hilltop) to finish off their tormentor with the barbed-wire covered baseball bat. They may not be looking at each other in this new photo below, but tactically, I suppose that’s a smart move. Keep your eyes peeled for trouble, gentlemen!
We’ll have plenty more new photos and goodies for you soon enough as EW drops its latest Walking Dead covers on Sept. 20. Keep your eyes peeled for much more scoop in the days leading up to that, and make sure to follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss for all the latest.
