Welcome back to Bring Out Your Dead: Bleeding Cool’s The Walking Dead Live-Blog!, as we take a look at the sixth episode’s major six-year time jump in the game-changing ninth season of AMC‘s long-running drama-horror series, ‘Who Are You Now?’.
The Hilltop/Alexandria community continues to thrive, evolving into the society that Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira), and Carol (Melissa McBride) fought so hard – and sacrificed so much – to achieve. Now with the next generation of Grimes on the scene – Judith (Cailey Fleming) – the community begins reaching further out for survivors – an initiative that a hardened Michonne is dead set against out of concern for the community’s long-term safety and security.
In the next episode of AMC‘s The Walking Dead ‘Who Are You Now?,’ a new group of survivors (Nadia Hilker‘s Magna, Angel Theory‘s Kelly, Lauren Ridloff‘s Connie, Eleanor Matsura‘s Yumiko, and Dan Fogler‘s Luke) make their way to the Alexandria/Hilltop community. When they begin to doubt the new community and its intentions – and with Michonne dead set against bringing them aboard – it might just take the next generation of Grimes to bring them together.
The Walking Dead Season 9, Episode 6 ‘Who Are You Now?’: The Survivors encounter unfamiliar faces outside the safety of their community’s walls and must decide whether or not this new group can be trusted.

Here’s a look back at Bleeding Cool’s review of last week’s emotional gut-punch, ‘What Comes After’:
Here’s a look back at the scene that would change the Walking Dead universe forever…
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group.
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors.
As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.
