The Walking Dead just can’t help itself with its mid-season finales. A whole year after we lost Carl Grimes to a walker, fans now have to contend with the death of another main character at the hands of a different foe altogether.

With Rick gone, it feels as if the clock has been reset: new relationships have formed and, this being The Walking Dead, new enemies are waiting in the wings to threaten the status quo. If season nine’s sixth instalment is anything to go by, fans are up for an entertaining, nostalgic and terrifying trio … [Read more...] about The five biggest talking points as The Walking Dead jumps forward six years
