The Walking Dead returned for Season 9B on Sunday and the new villains are even more chilling than the usual undead.

The Whisperers, a dangerous new group that dons Zombie-skin masks, are lead by a character named “Alpha,” played by actress Samantha Morton. In a new batch of sneak peek photos from the upcoming episode, “Omega,” we learn more about how the Whisperers came to be and how and why Alpha became their leader via a series of flashbacks.
