With the release of the covers, EW has released a somewhat interesting about the second half of The Walking Dead, while talking to EW, Andrew Lincoln gave his reaction to the season finale script which was so disturbing to him that he felt physically ill after reading it.
Here’s what Lincoln had to say about the script:
“I felt sick to my stomach when I read the script. It was the first day in the whole six years of working on The Walking Dead that I was late for work because I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I was so angry and frustrated and I felt sick. And that was just after reading it.”
Lincoln wasn’t the only one to react this way to the mid season finale, Lauren Cohan had a similar reaction:
“[Hearing] the word ‘finale’ gives me a physical reaction because it’s the hardest day on set that I’ve ever had in my life. I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It’s one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn’t want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let’s put it that way.”
Fans of the comic books probably know what’s coming, but The Walking Dead has certainly changed events from Robert Kirkman’s storylines in the past. Whatever is coming in the season finale, it will come after a harrowing experience for the Alexandrians, and will likely leave everyone reeling until the show returns this fall.”
Those who read the comics and have been keeping up with The Walking Dead know that Negan is coming and for those comic readers, you may know Lucille, his barbed-wired baseball bat does take out someone and this could be considered a spoiler so you’ve been warned.
In the comics we know that Glenn meets Lucille and Negan beats his face in to a pulp. The show has switched characters here and there from the comics and some should’ve been dead by now but are alive. The show does like to surprise us so it’s something to look forward to towards the season finale
