The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 6 Recap: “Bonds”
The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 6: “Bonds”
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) put their thoughts on the latest Walking Dead episode, entitled “Bonds,” in the ground for a little while, and they have emerged with hot takes!
In their podcast discussion of season ten, episode six, “Bonds,” Josh and Jess cover Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) going deep into the heart of Whisperer culture, butting heads with Beta (Ryan Hurst), and his newfound fascination with the queen bee herself, Alpha (Samantha Morton). Meanwhile, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) go on an expedition of their own into Whisperer territory, returning with something — or someone — unexpected.
Elsewhere, in Alexandria, disease! Sickness! Ailments! Swine flu? Okay, probably not swine flu again, but sickness all the same! Josh and Jess examine the reasons why so many of the Alexandrians are currently shacking up at the infirmary. Plus, what’s up with Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and his new radio pen pal? It’s a hard one to talk about without getting into spoilers from the comic books… good thing we have a section dedicated for that very purpose!
Josh and Jess dig into all of those storylines and more, engage in listener feedback, and dive into the spoiler-filled comic book zone as well. Comic book spoilers kick in around the 53 minute mark.
Based on Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s comic book series of the same name, The Walking Dead is the zombie movie that never ends. Set some years after an apocalyptic event causes the dead to rise from the grave, Walking Dead centers on an ever-changing group of survivors who do battle with the walkers, do their best to bring civilization back from the brink, and fight one another as conflicting agendas crop up among the living.
Angela Kang serves as executive producer and showrunner, with a sprawling cast including Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Melissa McBride as Carol, Christian Serratos as Rosita, Josh McDermitt as Eugene, Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel, Ross Marquand as Aaron, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan.
