Last week’s second episode of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” was a change of pace from the violent season premiere, as audiences got a look at what Carol (Melissa McBride) and Morgan (Lennie Jones) had been up to while the rest of the crew suffered Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wrath. In the promo for Episode 3, titled “The Cell,” it looks like our brief respite from the terrifying Negan is over. If the clip is any indication (watch above), the hour will focus on fan favorite Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) after being taken hostage by Negan, and we’ll also see a couple of familiar faces.
Viewers should pray for Daryl’s safety, but the episode could also provide an exciting peek into the Saviors’ camp. The show’s previous Big Bag, The Governor (David Morrissey), had zombie gladiator battles in his town. Negan is a bit like The Governor on steroids, so one can only imagine the horrors waiting inside. Negan and the walkers aren’t the only forces out for Daryl. His nemesis Dwight (Austin Amelio) returns to torment Mr. Dixon, most notably by taking his stolen motorcycle out for joyrides.
Long time fans will spot another returning face at the end of the preview in Dwight’s wife Sherry (Christine Evangelista), both of whom were introduced last season. In the clip, she is pleading with someone to “go back while you can — whatever he’s done, there’s more.” But to whom is she speaking? It’s easy to hope that Daryl finds an ally on the inside in the form of Sherry. But, given the look of doubt Dwight tosses Negan’s way, perhaps she is pleading with Dwight to flee the group. If Dwight has doubts about Negan and turns against him, it could provide a huge advantage to Rick’s group in the coming struggle against the Saviors.
