THE WALKING DEAD: Why Is Glenn Screaming In New "When The Dead Come Knocking" Promo?

THE WALKING DEAD: Why Is Glenn Screaming In New "When The Dead Come Knocking" Promo?

Looks like Glenn and Maggie are in for a world of hurt in next week's episode of AMC's hit television series The Walking Dead. Plus a new photo from "When The Dead Come Knocking" reveals the members of Rick's rescue team. UPDATE: two more photos.

AMC's The Walking Dead will often borrow a storyline or a key sequence from Robert Kirkman's comic book, but use it with a different character. In this case, it looks like Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) are taking on the horrific storyline that Michonne and Tyreese went through in the comic book. If I'm right, that means next week's episode will be very hard to watch for most viewers. Might have to bust out the Kleenex.

I like how you crossed out the actors names, nice touch ;)
thalidomide - 11/21/2012, 9:24 AM
Oh sh*t! Did they do something to Maggie?

Is there going to be a Daryl vs Merle scene here? :p
MrReese - 11/21/2012, 9:25 AM
Isn't CM Punk gonna appear in 1 of these episodes? Haha that should be fun. XD
ManofSteel23 - 11/21/2012, 9:30 AM
Looks like he killed someone
HavocPrime - 11/21/2012, 9:31 AM
Looks as though Maggie is getting the "treatment" Michone got in the comic book, while Glen is tied up and listening to it all, this season really makes up for the last one.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 9:32 AM
thalidomide -- I'm afraid Glenn and Maggie are going to go through the Rick and Michonne comic storyline. Which is not good for either of them.

thalidomide - 11/21/2012, 9:33 AM
Ror said nobody is getting that "treatment". I hope he's right.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 9:33 AM
Yeah, what HavocPrime said...
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 9:34 AM
I bet it happens off camera and is implied heavily.
Mysterion - 11/21/2012, 9:39 AM
You damn right SH*T is going DOWN!!!!!
I cant wait!!!!
Supes17 - 11/21/2012, 9:39 AM
I think Glenn wil kill Merle... Idk it there's a body next to him at the end
thalidomide - 11/21/2012, 9:43 AM
Looks like Oscar is ready for some ass-whopping!
ravennpilot - 11/21/2012, 9:44 AM
Let Maggie be fine, let Maggie be fine, let Maggie be fine. Good god I hope Maggie doesn't go through that torture. I dont know if there is coming back form that with the why her character is set up.

I will say this show has been losing steam for me but if this is the set up its bring me back.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 9:47 AM
I swear I remember an interview with the show runners, saying that when we hit the mid-season break we would all be pissed.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 9:53 AM
BigBoss66- I wonder if he meant the "arrival at the prison" scene...
Gulon180 - 11/21/2012, 10:01 AM
Check this out, somebody got really bored today....
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:15 AM
No one else seems to think it looks like both Glenn's hands are missing in that last shot?
Stumblin - 11/21/2012, 10:16 AM
@jjk2814, he has his hands, put it on full screen you can clearly see he's still got his digits :)
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:18 AM looks like he clenches his fists in the last second of it. nevermind...i hope...

In case no one has read the comics, or does not want to, highlight the text below to reveal the "Horrific" storyline with Michonne and Tyreese. I would've typed it out myself, but TWD wiki page seems to fit the details much better. Obviously, SPOILERS ahead, so caution is advised.

After several months at the prison, Michonne, along with Rick and Glenn, were part of the group that went to investigate the crash of a helicopter. It was during their travel to find the source of the occupant's disappearance that she revealed parts of her past before the epidemic. When the trio stumbled upon the town of Woodbury, Georgia, Michonne became a tragic victim of a cruel and psychotic survivor named Phillip, the "Governor" of Woodbury. The Governor betrayed and captured them, violently raping and torturing Michonne to acquire the location of the prison. The Governor later attempted to toy with her skills and sent her into their stadium fights as a participant for the crowds, but she caused more trouble than satisfaction when Michonne proceeded to kill her opponent and the zombies with her Katana in a gladiator style tournament. When the others eventually escaped, Michonne remained behind and tortured the Governor by scooping his eye out and chopping his arm off before making her way back to the prison with the rest of the group.

When the Governor retaliated, Michonne and Tyreese went on the offense, attempting guerrilla warfare in order to buy the prison time to prepare for the next attack. However, this act proved too careless and dangerous resulting in Michonne barely escaping and Tyreese being captured and used as a bargaining tool in order to get into the prison. When that failed, The Governor killed Tyreese, decapitating him with Michonne's Katana. Days later she returned and reclaimed her sword, put Tyreese's reanimated head to rest, and fled into the woods nearby."

Yup, got it, Stumblin
blvdnoise - 11/21/2012, 10:19 AM
Aww sheeit.
Stumblin - 11/21/2012, 10:25 AM
Word! jjk2814, don't freak me out like that because I was like, "Crap, he had no hands?!" Really looking forward to this episode, some shit is going down!
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:26 AM
Has anyone heard the horrible mid-season spoiler that's been going around the imdb board? With this promo it seems plausible...

This is just a repost of it, but check it out if you dont mind the potential spoilage
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:26 AM
@ Stumblin, okay, I'll be more careful next time.
TheGambitFreak - 11/21/2012, 10:29 AM
Is it just me, or does Oscar (Black Prisoner) rockin' the same pants as Captain America?

jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:30 AM
^^Haha! By God, you're right!
Stumblin - 11/21/2012, 10:32 AM
@jjk2814, I was only joking around with you :D
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:35 AM
I thought so, the guys over at imdb panicked me first.
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:37 AM
and that damn spoiler i posted above is driving me crazy...I really hope its not true.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 10:39 AM
jjk2814- I hadn't seen that, but I believe it could go down. Man, I hope not though!
TheBeard - 11/21/2012, 10:40 AM
looks like merle laying on the ground there at the end
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:45 AM
@HodorWhat sucks most about it, is that...thats actually pretty good! I mean from a plot/character perspective regarding Merle and the Governor...they really kinda need something like that so people stop defending the Governor. He's a bad dude, dammit.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 10:46 AM
I hadn't noticed that. BUT- Merle is wearing a black shirt. Maggie on the other hand...
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 10:48 AM
jjk2814- I agree. And I love it. I also hate it. Does that make sense?
TheBeard - 11/21/2012, 10:48 AM
nevermind that aint merle, i think its a walker glenn gets turned like imdb says. maybe merle rapes maggie, instead of like in the comic where the governer rapes michonne. he's a twisted dude it would be believable that he would do that.
Hodor - 11/21/2012, 10:50 AM
It's about to go down!
jjk2814 - 11/21/2012, 10:50 AM
Hehe....whoa, watch it Beard, some people might not wanna know those details.
