“Enough is enough! I have had it with these mother f***ing zombies on this mother f***ing plane!”
Okay, maybe Samuel L. Jackson hasn’t signed on for the episode and basic cable will probably not handle the language but it never hurts to dream.
AMC has told EW that they have plans for a stand-alone episode of The Walking Dead that takes place on a plane. In the half-hour special a group of passengers will fight off a walker attack while flying the friendly skies. The timeline will coincide with The Walking Dead spin-off Fear The Walking Dead.
“The airline attack story will debut online, and will unfold this in chapters that will air during Walking Dead’s on-air telecasts.” According to EW, “In other words: You’re watching The Walking Dead, AMC cuts to commercial break, then you get a chapter in the as-yet-untitled stand-alone airline attack drama.”
We’ve seen zombies on a plane before. In one of most absurd scenes from Brad Pitt’s World War Z a zombie makes it into a jumbo jet and wreaks havoc. Hopefully, the minds at The Walking Dead will have a better solution than exploding a live grenade on board and crashing the plane. (Remind me never to fly with Brad Pitt).
And remember, in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse … hmmm … I don’t know. I always kind of zone out during that safety speech.
