Danai Gurira's final episode as Michonne on AMC's 'The Walking Dead' is just around the corner. Season 10 Episode 13 'What We Become' will see Michonne and Virgil (Kevin Carroll) setting out on a mission that could have deadly consequences.

The episode will step away from the frontlines of the Whisperer War for a moment to follow Michonne to Virgil's island in search of weapons in exchange for helping him reunite with his family. However, there's more going on here than meets the eye.

The trailer for the upcoming episode dropped some ominous teases, including Virgil cryptically saying "The island is not clear. It was until the others came." The clip doesn't clarify who these others are but whoever they are, they're clearly bad news.

Now an extended trailer that has surfaced online finally reveals what happened to Virgil's family. It seems they may have all been killed by the zombie virus or some other, equally devastating sickness.

The minute-and-a-half-long clip sees Virgil confess at sword point that "the others" brought violence and "a sickness" to the island, the latter of which killed his wife and kids. He also says that his family is still there on the island, which is why he wanted Michonne's help.

Based on his words, it sounds as if whoever came to the island has kept his family's bodies. Another possibility is that the "sickness" he's talking about actually is the zombie virus and they've been turned into walkers, in which case he's asking Michonne to put them out of their misery.

Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode: "Michonne takes Virgil back to his mysterious island to reunite with his family. In exchange, Virgil promises weapons that could change the tide of the Whisperer War."

The cast for 'The Walking Dead' Season 10 includes Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Melissa McBride as Carol Peletier, Christian Serratos as Rosita Espinosa and Josh McDermitt as Eugene Porter along with Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Ryan Hurst, Samantha Morton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Callan McAuliffe, Eleanor Matsuura, Cooper Andrews, Nadia Hilker, Cailey Fleming, Cassady McClincy, Lauren Ridloff, Thora Birch and Dan Fogler.

New episodes of 'The Walking Dead' Season 10 air every Sunday at 9 pm ET on AMC.
