The zombie drama The Walking Dead will arrive again beginning February 28, 2021 via AMC, and fans are counting down the hours to see their favorite characters again, Daryl (Norman Reedus), Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). and Maggie (Lauren Cohan).
Although the 6 additional episodes of the tenth season of The Walking Dead will be released in a few days through the AMC channel, the United States transmission platform AMC + has already anticipated.
Fans who have already enjoyed the first of the six episodes, titled “Home Sweet Home,” are feeling a bit upset with one of the new characters. it is about the mysterious masked man who first appeared in episode 16 of season 10 “A Certain Doom.”
The masked man known as Elijah, played by Okea Eme-Akwari, suddenly appeared in the last episode to save Gabriel, Aaron and Aiden, displaying his great martial arts skills, using two curved Japanese blades called “kama”.
As is known, Elijah is loyal to Maggie whom he helped defeat the zombies. The first additional episode will tell the story about how the connection between both characters happened and where they come from.
Yet despite Elijah seemingly on the side of the good guys on The Walking Dead, and for all of his fighting power and the importance of the character, some fans were annoyed by his characterization, specifically his iron mask. .
It turns out that some fans of The Walking Dead took to social media to express their impressions of the character and his iron mask. They believe that the mask will bring more problems than benefits in the plot of the zombie drama. This was commented by fans on Reddit:
“It’s not practical to wear a mask like that while trying to be on the lookout for enemies and zombies.”
“This mask affects vision, hearing and smell just so it can ‘look fancy.’
“I thought he was wearing this mask because his face was disfigured or something. But he took it off and nothing happened to his face ”.
