Sunday, October 9, AMC will air episode 18 of The Walking Dead’s eleventh and final season. The midseason premiere, “Lockdown,” was an outstanding way to kick off the series’ final episodes. Our survivors are making plans to take down the Commonwealth.
Season 11, episode 18, “A New Deal,” written by Corey Reed and directed by Jeffrey January, gets its title from the fact that Carol (Melissa McBride) makes a deal with the Commonwealth Governor Pamela Milton (Laila Robins). Carol is trying to keep her family out of trouble and negotiate a deal to keep them all safe. This episode will also see Aaron (Ross Marquand), Jerry (Cooper Andrews), Lydia (Cassady McClincy) and Elijah (Okea Eme-Akwari) head to Oceanside to inform them of a plan. The Commonwealth, despite all of the troubles in the community, will still find time to celebrate Founder’s Day in this episode.
The last episode ended with Daryl (Norman Reedus) holding Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton) at knifepoint. The look on Lance’s face tells viewers he is becoming unhinged. It will be exciting to see what comes next.

Another storyline that will be exciting to see is the group traveling to Oceanside. The last we saw this community was in the midseason finale “Acts of God.” Hornsby had taken over and was flipping a coin to decide their fate. Will Aaron and the rest come to a community overrun with walkers of their former friends?
In true Commonwealth form, they won’t allow some protesters and an impending horde from hosting their Founder’s Day celebration. This just goes to show how much Milton covets her power and prestige.
AMC will air episode 17 on October 9 at 9 p.m. ET. AMC subscribers can view this episode now.
