December 12th, 2016   Author: Tanea   The Walking Dead - Videos

Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was so intense! I won’t spoil anything in case you haven’t watched it, but Danai had an amazing monologue as Michonne and I am so, so proud of her. She did amazing. The Walking Dead season 7 returns on February 12th, 2017 (which is super far away) but we have a preview for 7B so I thought I’d share. Things may be pretty quiet over the holidays but I’ll still be working on the site and adding any news or updates. And then Danai starts filming Black Panther early next year, so there’s that. 😉
