The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 10 Promos, Sneak Peeks: An “Inmates” Analysis (UPDATES)

UPDATE 3: Here's a full play-by-play recap of Episode 10!

UPDATE 2: Check out the new Spanish promo below, showing Tara is indeed with Glenn in Episode 10. She even asks him how he knows she (Maggie) is still alive. He admits he doesn't. We also see Maggie sobbing on the empty prison bus. So Glenn and Maggie may both assume the worst about each other. Glenn doesn't even know what happened to Hershel, so do you think he knows Tara's part of the battle? She was the first one to tell The Governor "I'm in" back on Episode 8.

UPDATE 1: Wanna know what happened to baby Judith? A foreign promo spilled the beans and a fan caught some clips from it here.

Original story:

It feels like The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 10, “Inmates” is going to pack at least two episodes in one. Last week’s Episode 9 focused on just three characters but the February 16 hour will showcase at least nine characters, and rumor has it three newbies will show up at the end. So far, AMC has graced us with one promo and two sneak peeks. If more show up later in the week — maybe through foreign promos, which tend to share even more info — we’ll update with more intel. For now, here are eight things we learned from the three Episode 10 teasers.

1. We Have Our "Inmates"

The title of the episode is shown at the very start of the promo, as we see a sign reading "Hitchhikers may be escaping inmates." How pleasant! Our former Team Prison folks are technically inmates who escaped the prison destruction, but they probably won't get many chances to hitch a ride.

2. Sasha, Bob and Maggie Find Bodies ... and Split Up?

That trio left the prison together, but it remains to be seen if they stay together. Toward the start of the promo, we see Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.) standing in front of a ton of dead bodies. Later, we hear what sounds like Bob's voice saying "I need to help them." Cut to Sasha saying "We cannot split up. Not now." Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) is later shown walking through a sea of dead bodies, looking distraught. She's by the back of the bus, so she may assume something happened to Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun). Who does Bob (if that's him) want to help? Don’t forget that Bob was shot during the prison battle and Sasha was still recovering from the flu.

3. What Happened to the Bus People?

First of all, who was driving that bus as it left the prison? Glenn would never have wanted to leave without Maggie and the others, so he probably either fought to keep it around or he jumped off. Either way, an earlier promo showed people jumping out of the back of the bus, and this new Episode 10 promo shows Maggie around dead bodies. Dead former prison redshirts? It's looking grim for those people we never really knew. No Glenn, though.

4. What Happened to Glenn?

This promo shows Glenn lying on the ground, looking bloody and awful. Is he back at the prison? Did he never leave? A previously released photo for the second half showed Glenn in prison riot gear, which he had to have gotten at the prison, and another promo showed someone in riot gear running out of the prison with The Governor's old ponytail buddy Tara (Alanna Masterson). But this promo just shows Glenn yelling "Maggie? Maggaaaayyyyy!!!" So at least his lungs have recovered from the flu.

5. Tyreese Busts Some Walkers

He's close to some train tracks when he hammers some walkers, and that pile o' walkers may reappear when others cross the tracks.

6. Daryl and the Girls Walk the Tracks

Not together, though. Those train tracks are one big metaphor for the second half, and everyone seems to cross them at one time or another. Tyreese (Chad Coleman) should be with the girls, even if we don't see them together, and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is with Beth Greene (Emily Kinney). But this promo shows Daryl on the tracks looking behind him (a previously clip showed Beth crying, so that may be what he sees) and we see Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) and Mika Samuels (Kyla Kenedy) holding hands as they walk the tracks.

7. Beth Is Ready to Kick Butt ... or Get Eaten

We see part of her fireside chat with Daryl, where she insists they aren't the only survivors and they should do something. Cut to a clip of Beth holding a knife as a walker attacks. Another sneak peek shows Daryl using his tracking skills to find any other Team Prisoners, and he finds blood — not walker blood, either. Whose blood?

8. Do the Girls Have Judith?

They have her diaper bag. You can see it over Lizzie's shoulder in the promo. Are they just using it as a regular bag or is she somewhere in the vicinity? One fan theory suggests Ty saved Judith at the prison and ran out with her, so if Ty is with the girls maybe that includes baby J.

We're supposed to get a few major answers in this next episode, and we're definitely hoping one is about the fate of Judith. Do you think we’ll see the baby in this episode? What about Tara at the prison? If so, they would be the 10th and 11th characters added to this hour, not even counting the three new people. And who knows, maybe Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) will decide to join this party too.

The Walking Dead Season 4 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
