This Sunday, October 2, AMC will premiere the first of the last eight episodes of The Walking Dead. Fans are eager to see what will happen next in the battle with the Commonwealth while also dreading these episodes as they will close out the series. AMC has released a massive amount of new photos for the first episode of part 3.
Season 11, episode 17 is titled “Lockdown,” and the synopsis tells us that big things are happening. Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) will head to the Commonwealth (CW) to stop Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton) from harming their families. When the residents of Alexandria moved to the Commonwealth, Daryl was caring for Judith (Cailey Fleming) and RJ (Antony Azor), who stayed back with Carol (Melissa McBride) when Daryl was working as a CW soldier. He will do anything to protect his family. Does this statement mean that Negan’s family, Annie (Medina Senghore) and her unborn child, has somehow ended up there as well? Or perhaps it could mean they are gunning for Hornsby before he does anything crazier than he already has.
Another important story in this episode will be Governor Milton’s (Laila Robins) handling of protesters in the CW. They are none too happy about her son Sebastian’s (Teo Rapp-Olson) ‘s crimes and are demanding justice.
We’ve seen several photos of Mercer (Michael James Shaw) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) together in full CW military gear. The duo will be fighting off a swarm of walkers. Could these be the variants Aaron (Ross Marquand) talks about in the trailer and showrunners have been teasing us about?

AMC and AMC+ will air episode 17 on October 1, with AMC+ also airing episode 18, “A New Deal.” Fans will get a taste of what the final episodes will look like as the trailer seems to be nonstop action.
Below are new photos from episode 17 released by AMC.
