The Walking Dead Season 6 Premiere Spoilers: What Happens in “First Time Again?”


The Walking Dead Season 6 starts up again this Sunday, October 11, with Season 6, Episode 1: “First Time Again.” And since we’ve already seen the episode, we’re here to tell you everything we know about the 90-minute installment without giving too much away.

Already released photos suggest the episode picks up more or less where the Season 5 finale left off, and we know the ep kicks off  in the midst of an action sequence. As per usual, the timeline jumps around a bit, but this year there’s a very clever storytelling device at play to help the viewer differentiate what takes place when.

Per AMC, the synopsis for “First Time Again” is as follows:

Rick and the group are still having trouble assimilating into Alexandria. Will a new threat bring them closer together or drive them further apart?

Various trailers released thus far hint at plenty of friction between Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes and the residents of Alexandria, and there have also been hints that Rick and Morgan Jones, AKA Lennie James, may butt heads as well.

We were treated to a sneak peek of the premiere back in August before the series premiere of Fear the Walking Dead aired, but the clip itself is kind of a throwaway moment between Abraham Ford, played by Michael Cudlitz, and Sasha, aka Sonequa Martin-Green. However, at the time Scott assured us that was only because every other moment of the 90-minute premiere was too spoiler-ific to share. We’ll take it!

Speaking of the premiere, Andrew Lincoln, aka Rick Grimes said, “When I read the first script, I called [showrunner Scott M. Gimple] up and went, ‘You know, I say them and they, and us and we a lot.’ He said, ‘That’s your journey, from them to us,’” so make of that what you will.
