The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 2 airs tonight, and is going to be an important one — showing how the communities deal with rebuilding a bridge.
There is tension between the group that might have to provide the labor and the group that might have to feed them.
The sneak peeks have hinted at Negan getting a few scenes, even if it might just be from his jail cell. Outside of that, there could be a number of fights taking place.
They could include the workers on the bridge, as well as the camps dealing with walkers again. Anger brewing beneath the surface for a number of characters is also coming.
The Walking Dead season premiere recap
We have a full breakdown of the Season 9 premiere, but it can be summed up in a few words.
Maggie Greene took complete control over Hilltop, emerging as the leader she has wanted to be for years. Leadership comes with difficult choices, though, as she has to decide if Hilltop will continue feeding the surviving Saviors.

The final episodes of Rick Grimes and Maggie Greene
It’s no longer a secret that Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan have already filmed their final episodes of the show.
Leaders Rick Grimes and Maggie Greene are characters that have been important for years. Lincoln has been the star of the show since Episode 1, while Maggie became prominent in Season 2.

The fact they are leaving was expected to lead to a lot of viewers when Season 9 debuted, but the television ratings for October 7 were dismal for The Walking Dead.
Will the numbers go back up, now that the show has resumed its regular Sunday night time slot? Season 9 Episode 2 is going to set the stage for the next four episodes, with an appearance by Negan thrown in for good measure.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
