MAGGIE’S BACK (AND SHE BROUGHT HERSHEL) - The Walking Dead’s current season is finally finishing out its second half, delayed due to the global pandemic (the real one, not the TV one). It marks the return of major lead Maggie Green/ Rhee, a fan favorite on TWD all the way back from Season 2. She conveniently disappeared in the “big time jump” which came at the end of Rick Grimes' (Andrew Lincoln’s) final episode, having apparently left Hilltop with the mysterious Georgie. In reality, Lauren Cohen had been on a hiatus to film an expensive star maker. Cohen’s much anticipated Whiskey Cavalier, met with lukewarm ratings, was axed by ABC after a single season. Maggie encounters Negan on the trail. She stares him down and keeps walking. But all she finds of Hilltop when she arrives for a homecoming is a ruined heap… and the dead. With some luck, she finds Carol and Daryl. Carol tells her she set Negan free from prison, so he could kill Alpha. Carol also reveals Negan was with the Whisperers when they leveled Hilltop. Maggie goes back out with Daryl to get Hershel from camp. He’s staying with a group of leftovers she met along her travels. Maggie confesses to Daryl that she’s had her share of losses on the road. Communities came together and fell apart. Things collapsed and she ran. By the next morning, they arrive at camp only to find death and destruction. What’s worse, they begin to take fire from a new group, the Reapers! But all Maggie can worry about is finding her son. Tune into the 6-episode second half of season 10 tomorrow night!
