We returned to the world of the Badlands last week on AMC with the Season 2 premiere of Into The Badlands and life is not good for former clipper Sunny (Daniel Wu). He is a prisoner in a Mad Max-style mining colony stuck with fellow inmate Bajie (Nick Frost), both looking for a way out. Meanwhile M.K. (Aramis Knight) is training at a monastery trying to control his powers and the Badlands are up for grabs as The Widow (Emily Beecham) tries to consolidate the territory lost by Baron Quinn (Marton Csokas) who was thought dead… that is until he turns up holding a beautiful new baby: Veil’s baby, Sunny’s baby.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead caught us up on what’s been happening at the Hilltop Colony, where original Alexandrians Maggie and Sasha have been hiding out and training the residents to fight for their upcoming battle against Negan and the Saviors. Early on, Sasha and Rosita took off on their own mission to take down Negan. When they got to the Sanctuary, they found that their old friend Eugene had gone from abductee to commander at Negan’s compound, and when they tried to rescue him, he turned tail and ran back, not wanting to leave his new cushy situation. After that, Sasha decided to take on the mission solo, leaving Rosita reluctantly behind so that she can be there for the Alexandrians. The episode ended with Rosita spotting a shadowy figure with a crossbow nearby.

On this week’s episode, 7.15 “Something They Need,” Tara has revealed to Rick the existence of the Oceanside community, which is the group of women whose men were all killed by the Saviors. Rick and crew are making plans now to journey there to get the women to join them in their fight against Negan and the Saviors.

AMC's Into the Badlands

Into The Badlands
Episode 2.1 “Tiger Pushes Mountain”
Directed by Nick Copus
Written by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar
Starring Daniel Wu, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Oliver Stark, Madeleine Mantock, Ally Ioannides, Nick Frost, Marton Csokas, Chipo Chung
AMC
Air date: Sunday, March 19th, 2017, 10pm

In the late Fall of 2015, AMC debuted Into the Badlands, and it took me all of 5-minutes to be floored by the show. A wild mix of post-apocalyptic steampunk, techno-feudalism and martial arts, Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu as Sunny, the head clipper for Baron Quinn (Marton Csokas). The Barons control their piece of land, and with guns a thing of the past, young warriors are trained to fight with blades and other weapons. The fight sequences and choreography were some of the best ever for television and a standout for the series. When a strange teen, M.K. (Aramis Knight) who unleashes superhuman power when he bleeds, show up in the Badlands everything changes for Sunny. Sunny begins having conflicts of self; his loyalty torn between his father-like Baron, his pregnant girlfriend Veil (Madeleine Mantock), and the world beyond the Badlands. In the end, a mammoth war broke out, Quinn stabbed Sunny in the back, and Sunny and M.K. attempted to escape, only to fall into a trap.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead took us back to King Ezekiel and The Kingdom, where a routine tribute drop with the Saviors resulted in the death of one of their own after Richard took matters into this own hands. Richard wanted to provoke the Saviors into killing him so that Ezekiel would be prompted to join Rick in his fight to defeat Negan. But young Benjamin ended up being the one killed. In a shocking turn of events, Morgan abandoned his “all life is sacred” creed when he killed Richard with his bare hands because of what happened with Benjamin. But, in the end, Richard’s plan worked: Not only is Ezekiel now ready to fight, but Carol is joining the fray now that she knows what Negan really did to the Alexandrians.

This week’s episode, 7.14 “The Other Side,” goes back to the Hilltop Colony, opening on a few days prior to when Rosita shows up to get Sasha to accompany her on a mission to kill Negan or die trying. We see the Hilltop people making weapons and practicing fighting, as pregnant Maggie mades plans for battle, while the community’s official leader Gregory remains hidden in his office. We also see Daryl at the colony keeping to himself. The opening sequence ends with Rosita going to Sasha, which we saw in a previous episode.

REMINDER: ‘Into The Badlands’ Season 2 Premieres This Weekend
The Movie God   |  

Daniel Wu as Sunny - Into the Badlands

Just a quick reminder for everyone before you head off into the weekend seeking adventures. AMC’s post-apocalyptic steampunk martial arts drama Into the Badlands is set to return for season two this weekend, kicking off Sunday night at 10:00PM after the latest episode of The Walking Dead.

For those unfamiliar with the show its first season was a hell of a lot of fun and did have its fan base, but struggled to find a large audience, especially after The Walking Dead‘s season ended. This led to much uncertainty when it came to the question of whether there would be a second season, and a painful wait for fans before AMC finally decided to give it another go. Because of this, the more eyes watching when the show returns the better, of course, and better than that is those eyes continuing to watch after this season of Dead concludes.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead showed us Rick and Michonne on their road-trip honeymoon of sorts, where their romantic excursion was peppered with Walker attacks, but ended with a major score of food and weapons. But the weapons were not enough for their Heapster allies to start up the fight against Negan and the Saviors, so Rick and crew will be off again to find more guns. But before that happens, it looks like Tara will be confessing to Rick about the Oceanside community, who are potential allies for them against Negan. Meanwhile, frenemies Rosita and Sasha have made a pact — they’re off to kill Negan or die trying.

For this week’s episode, 7.13 “Bury Me Here,” we leave the Alexandrians and return to King Ezekiel and The Kingdom, which includes Morgan and also Carol in her nearby cottage.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead backtracked to show us what happened after Eugene’s capture from Alexandria by Negan. The Saviors brought the cowardly man back to the Sanctuary, and instead of throwing him into a cell, they gave some very accommodating living quarters. There, Eugene learns that Negan has grand plans for his big brains, as do Negan’s plotting wives. He learns firsthand what happens when someone isn’t loyal to Negan. In the end, he comes to appreciate his newfound standing at the Sanctuary, and when asked by Negan who he is, Eugene quickly replies correctly, “I am Negan,” solidifying his place at the Sanctuary.

This week’s episode, 7.12 “Say Yes,” follows Rick and Michonne out on the road looking for guns to bring back to the Heapsters, who had promised to help Rick fight the Saviors if he supplied them with the weapons. We see the couple finding few supplies and then making love, showing that even during these desperate times, they are enjoying their time alone together. They eventually come upon two Saviors playing golf in the road, and manage to steal some of their provisions before driving away undetected.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead was all about Rick trying to get various groups to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. The Hilltop colony and the Kingdom both turned him down, as they were too scared to mess up the respective agreements they have with the Saviors. But then Rick and crew went searching for Father Gabriel, who’d been captured by a new group, the Heapsters, who Rick — after successfully surviving a feat of strength — convinced to join him. Their leader, Jadis, is a hard woman of few words, but it was clear that she’s no one to be trifled with. But Rick was just happy to have the numbers, and he smiled his way through their entire encounter.

On this week’s episode, 7.11 “Hostiles and Calamities,” we return back to Negan and the Sanctuary, in a storyline that picks up right after Daryl’s escape. Dwight, who was guarding Daryl, finds his captive’s darkened cell empty and then his own room ransacked, with a note left behind reading “Go now” in script. He realizes what’s happened just as his door is broken in and he’s beaten down by his own comrades as Negan, with his bat Lucille in hand, looks on.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

On last week’s mid-season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, Rick and some of his crew from Alexandria went to both the Hilltop colony and the Kingdom to get the two communities to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. But both of those groups turned Rick down, fearing that they’d lose if they went up against the Saviors. It seemed like the Alexandrians would remain on their own. When they returned home, they find their pantry has been emptied and Father Gabriel is gone. At first, it seemed as if Gabriel made off with everything and abandoned them, but Rick knows better. He found a clue left behind – the word “Boat,” and figured out that he must return to the boat area where they’d recently found supplies. When they arrive back to the area, they are surrounded by a new group of people carrying weapons. But Rick wasn’t afraid; instead, he smiled.

In the latest episode, 7.10 “New Best Friends,” we find out why Rick was smiling and what happened to Father Gabriel, as well as what’s happening back at the Kingdom and with the self-exiled Carol.

‘Into The Badlands’ Season 2: New Teasers “The Widow’s Revenge” and “Sunny Is Ready For A Fight”
The Movie God   |  

AMC's Into the Badlands

AMC has released a pair of new teaser trailers for Into the Badlands season two, titled “The Widow’s Revenge” and ‘Sunny is Ready for a Fight.”

Each of the two teasers play similarly with the two title characters, the Widow and Sunny, training while quick shots from the new season rapidly flash away on your screen. They’re both effective teases, showing off lots of intriguing imagery but far too fast to know for sure what you’re seeing. Many eager fans will no doubt be wearing out their pause buttons as they try to get a better look.

Click on over to the other side to give them both a watch.
