THE WALKING DEAD gets reminiscent with an homage to the premiere episode!
Years after the start of zombie apocalypse, there are still plenty of survivors yet to be met on The Walking Dead. And one such character is making himself known in a new clip from Season 8 released at New York Comic Con!
The clip, featured above, shows Carl (Chandler Riggs) out alone on a mission to get some gasoline. All looks quiet and abandoned in the spooky old gas station– until quite suddenly, a man begins rambling close by. Carl slowly approaches the man with gun in hand, but as he turns the corner to face him, the scene cuts out.
We don’t see his face, but fans of the comics know he’s a new character named Siddiq (portrayed by Avi Nash), who was also briefly seen in the trailer.
Carl is at the same gas station that Rick explores in Season 1, Episode 1, a great homage for the 100th episode of the show and the start of a new season. Here’s a great comparison video:
The Walking Dead returns for Season 8 on October 22, 2017.
