The new 30-second spot, seen in the video above, concludes with a shot of Rick Grimes facing peril with a walker quickly approaching. It cuts before Rick is bitten or any harm comes to him but it certainly seems to be playing with fan expectations, at the very least. Most importantly, why isn’t Rick Grimes doing anything to move or avoid this walker?
Fans know Lincoln is exiting The Walking Dead before the first half of Season Nine comes to a close, but it would seem shocking for AMC to reveal Rick’s fate in a trailer, had the network not done such a thing before.
The Walking Dead returns for its ninth season on Oct. 7, 2018. Follow “The Walking Dead AfterWord” on Facebook for all breaking news.
