This Walking Dead article contains spoilers.

The Walking Dead season 9 was all about the battle to achieve Carl’s dream of rebuilding civilization và the many set-backs that threatened that ideal. It started with the symbol of an unfinished bridge & ended with a mysterious radio signal hinting at the wider world.

There was a mighty time-jump – first of eighteen months, then of six years. In that time, the community leaders fell out for reasons undisclosed, and Sanctuary & The Kingdom fell into disrepair, perhaps forever. Now only Hilltop and Alexandria remain.

With the threat from Negan neutralized, a new big bad arrived in the khung of Samantha Morton’s Alpha và her group of Whisperers – living people wearing the skins of Walkers and travelling inside herds, steering them lượt thích cattle from within. 

Characters were lost. Many characters. Rick, Maggie, & Jadis/Anne all left but didn’t die. Thanks lớn Alpha, others — including Jesus, Tara, Enid, & Henry — departed the show in a much more permanent way. A new group arrived — Magna, Yumiko, Connie, Kelly, and Luke. Carol grew her hair out, & most important of all, Daryl got a dog. He named it Dog.

With season 10 fast approaching, here’s a recap of everything you need to lớn remember from last time around:

The Goodbye Rick Grimes Miniseries (episodes one khổng lồ five)

Eighteen months after Rick beat Negan và the Sanctuary surrendered, all is not well in the new civilization. Maggie can’t forgive Rick for keeping Negan alive and locked up in a cell, and she’s not the only one with a problem. Oceanside resents the former Saviors who executed their men & boys and have been picking them off one by one. Gregory resents Maggie for ousting him from nguồn in a Hilltop election và tries khổng lồ have her murdered, but he is caught and hanged as a result. A good portion of the Saviors resent the King, the Widow, & Rick, & are missing the good life under Negan. 

It doesn’t help that the ex-Saviors are hungry, and Hilltop is unhappy about having to lớn shore them up with their own supplies. When Rick tries to lớn bring the communities together khổng lồ build a literal bridge, tensions flare. Michonne tries to lớn help by drawing up a charter for the communities lớn sign, bringing the rule of law back into the characters’ lives.

It’s not all bad news. Carol has found a family with new husband Ezekiel and their adopted son Henry. Jerry and Hilltop gardener Nabila have paired up.

He sacrifices himself lớn save Alexandria by blowing up the bridge they were building khổng lồ stop the Walkers from crossing it, an sự kiện witnessed by Michonne, Daryl, and the others.

After the Time Jump (episodes six to sixteen)

Six years later, Kingdom is falling apart at the seams and Sanctuary is an abandoned wasteland. Only Alexandria và Hilltop remain, and in the time past, their leaders have fallen out severely over an undisclosed event. Carol is fiercely protective of Henry (unbeknownst to her adopted son, she burns a group of former Saviors alive when they threaten và steal from them), và unwillingly takes him to Hilltop to train as a blacksmith.

Judith Grimes is around 10 years old & now has a little brother, RJ, by her dad & Michonne. She brings a group of survivors back khổng lồ Alexandria (Magna, Yumiko, Connie, Kelly, and Luke) but Michonne is suspicious & refuses to let them stay, instead taking them to lớn Hilltop. Maggie has taken her son & left to lớn go with Georgie, the woman who swapped “The Key” instructions for rebuilding sustainable civilisation for records in season 8. Jesus was voted Hilltop leader in Maggie’s stead, but is uncomfortable in the role, preferring life on the road. 

Daryl split from the group immediately after Rick “died” & has spent the last years surviving alone in the woods looking for Rick’s corpse, with only his dog for company. He và Michonne both have a mysterious X-shaped scar on their backs, which we later learn was received when Michonne welcomed an old friend và her group of children into Alexandria, who then robbed them, kidnapped their children, branded Michonne & Daryl, and tried lớn kill Judith and the other Alexandrian kids. Michonne saved Judith by slaughtering the child assassins while heavily pregnant with her và Rick’s son. The whole sự kiện left her fiercely protective and suspicious of outsiders, explaining her attitude to lớn the newcomers.

In the meantime, Eugene tries to lớn declare his love lớn Rosita, but she’s in love with Gabriel & pregnant by Siddiq following some no-strings fun, so they stay friends. Gabriel decides lớn stay with Rosita và help to lớn raise the baby. 

Lydia is granted asylum by the group leaders, & welcomed khổng lồ the trade fair organized by Ezekiel as a symbol of cooperation between the various communities. The leaders all sign Michonne’s charter, which Ezekiel has kept safe all these years in the hope of reconciliation after their undisclosed major fallout. All is well và the communities celebrate their various trades và gather lớn watch a film.

Meanwhile, Alpha infiltrates the fair disguised as a Hilltop woman and, one by one, draws off ten characters who are then bound and killed by her people, with their reanimated heads left on pikes signifying a border that the other groups are forbidden from crossing. The full list of the dead is: Tara; Enid; Henry; Hilltop’s Addy, Rodnemy và Tammy-Rose; Ex-Saviors DJ & Frankie; và Highwaymen (a short-lived new group) Ozzy và Alek.
