Living Dead fans have been left without Samantha Morton’s portrayal of Alpha since her character was killed off by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in season 10. However, her character returned in an episode of Tales of the Living Dead, a spin-off of the hit AMC show. The new series is an episodic anthology that follows characters from Living Dead universe, new and old.
Alpha is known as the leader of the Whispers, a savage group that did whatever it took to stay alive, even if it meant skinning walkers and using their faces to blend in with the treasures found in the zombie-infested area. During the third episode of the series, titled dee, the public got a look at Alpha’s origins. Before being a member of the Whispers, she was a woman named Dee, who focused on protecting her daughter Lydia, a prominent character within Living Dead.
While it’s unclear if we’ll see his character reappear in TWD universe, fans at least get one last look at Alpha, courtesy of AMC. The official Instagram account of Living Dead shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Morton in his Alpha gear, bald head and all. The post can be seen below.
The possibilities are endless with Tales of the Living Dead, as we’ve already seen Terry Crews and Olivia Munn make their in-universe debuts. Other deceased characters like Glenn, Abraham or even Shane have been able to see their backstories fleshed out in the anthology series as the seasons continue. But for now, we’ll have to wait and see how. Tales of the Living Dead airs every Sunday on AMC.
