Hello, English-speaking readers. How’s your French vocabulary nowadays? Well, based on our first official look at Walking Dead spinoff The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, you may want to start brushing up on the romance language soon.

The two-minute clip, which AMC premiered during episode 2 of The Walking Dead: Dead City, features Walking Dead hero Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) traversing a rundown European landscape and even encountering some graffiti that might be cause for hope (if he paid enough attention in French 101 to read it). Give the whole clip a look below.

The first notable bit here is that Daryl addresses himself into a tape recorder and says he comes from a place called The Commonwealth in America. This suggests that the massive community from flagship series is carrying on just fine and is perhaps even notably less corruptible under new leadership. Things get decidedly less optimistic from there as Daryl walks across a post-apocalyptic France that’s every bit as broken, decayed, and dead-strewn as the United States.

Near the end of the clip, however, we get another indication that the tone of Daryl Dixon might be a bit more positive than The Walking Dead. It comes in the form of this hastily scrawled graffiti.
