The Walking Lifeless wraps up its 2nd out of 3 batches of remaining episodes on April 10 with its last midseason finale, and it claims to be a fight of biblical proportions. Look no more than the episode title, “Acts of God.”
So, what provides with the title? We questioned showrunner Angela Kang about the episode name and what it references. “I believe there are a few of points that it truly is referencing,” says Kang. “With Leah and the Reapers, we showed that at many periods, they actually were being form of diving into their personal variety of interpretation of currently being God’s picked types. And so Leah feels like she is on sort of a mission from previously mentioned to avenge her people.”
Alright, fine. Certain. That makes perception. But then Kang dropped this minimal nugget: “We also have this sort of odd locust swarm.” Wait, locust swarm? As in plague and wrath of God sort stuff? These form of locusts?
The move in fact performs into one thing Kang has been carrying out at any time since she took above as showrunner in year 9, making weather, Mom Character, and other exterior elements act as other complications our heroes have to contend with over and above zombies — such as the show’s initial at any time snowstorm back in the year 9 finale.

“We’ve been working with a good deal of items that have brought on extraordinary difficulties for our individuals, like when Alexandria was destroyed by a rainstorm,” says Kang. “And we’ve been exhibiting how character can form of get in the way of our people’s best laid programs. And so, this is another 1 of those people moments, and it can be all colliding and making their life pretty, quite tricky and unsustainable.”
Of course, it can be not just pesky locusts the individuals from Alexandria and Hilltop will have to contend with. Lance Hornsby is on a rampage following becoming confident Maggie and firm took out his troops, and he seems to have aligned with Reapers chief Leah to aid get her out. (Even nevertheless Leah also killed Commonwealth soldiers, but whatevs, I guess?)
“We are choosing up rather quickly off of the end of episode 15, claims Kang of the finale. “And we know that our men and women have form of kicked the hornets’ nest with the Commonwealth and Hornsby. So it really is really likely to concentration on that storyline that is exterior the walls, whilst we’re also variety of balancing story line with some men and women that are striving to expose some of the lies that we are discovering are fundamental all the things at the Commonwealth. And we also know that Hornsby and Leah are now in league. And so we are going to see what will come out of that unholy Alliance.
But are the Lance and Leah pursuits really aligned? (Once again, she murdered his troops.) “I assume they are,” states Kang. “It is a form of a villainous marriage of convenience. What they have in common is they both really detest Maggie and want to see anything materialize there, but they also are both equally really selfish persons that have their have interests that they’re subsequent as properly.”
As for how the midseason finale will conclude, will it wrap up an arc, act as a cliffhanger, or take care of some tales while environment up other new ones for the series’ remaining 8 episodes? “I think it can be a small little bit of all the items,” Kang teases. “There are some threads that will occur to a summary while there are other threads that are actually just kind of continuing to ramp up in intensity.”
All that… and locusts.
