The first major "storyline" that seems suspicious is the disagreement between Morgan and Rick. The trailer would have us believe the two friends are destined to do battle. Rick is attempting to change the mindsets of the residents at the Alexandria Safe-Zone, but Morgan (supposedly) isn't having it. It appears Deanna has anointed Morgan the community's new leader in an effort to stop Rick. But none of that is actually true. While Morgan and Rick may have different philosophies on the new world, they still have one of the strongest bonds on the show. Morgan just traveled a long way to find his old friend and now he's going to feud with him? Not likely. When Morgan says, "I know Rick. I can stop him," we only hear him say it. We don't see it. Also, when Deanna instructs the Safe-Zone people to follow "his" lead, she is more likely referring to Rick (who she just instructed to kill Pete during the Season 5 finale). We're also led to believe the closing line Rick delivers ("Do you have any idea who you're talking to?") is directed at Morgan. However, that is scene ripped directly from the comic book, in which Rick puts Nicholas in his place. And hopefully, you weren't fooled by Morgan's "You get the hell out of here and you don't ever come back," line. There isn't a scenario that would play out in which Morgan would say that to Rick. The rest of the trailer is full of clips of the Safe-Zone residents doing battle with walkers, some of which could be taking place at the community or somewhere else. The footage could also be a mix of old clips, stuff that won't air or future flashback sequences. Lastly, there's Daryl Dixon. The trailer sets up an early disagreement between Rick and Daryl that probably isn't much of a disagreement at all. Yet, Daryl does find himself in trouble outside of the Safe-Zone walls. The quick reaction is to assume the Wolves have captured him. But there are no W's. Gimple and company have teased Daryl's death each season. But it's probably never going to happen. The scene in which Daryl is in trouble may just lead to the discovery of something bigger. Or maybe it doesn't happen at all. That's the beauty of "The Walking Dead." The show's team is brilliant at building hype. Season 6 will definitely feature a lot of action. We just don't know how much of it was actually featured in the new trailer.

Haven't been on ATS in a while I just wanted to hear what real people had to say about the season premiere. Am I crazy for thinking it was confusing and anti climatic. they blended real powerful moments with wacky transitions. Morgan and Rick have a good moment and then SNAP! your out of that. and the awkward inclusion of Heath. "Ive just been on a run for a couple of weeks." again I am sure I am the crazy one and everyone else thinks the episode was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
