WASHINGTON, February 14, 2016 – Andrew Lincoln, Greg Nicotero, John Sanders and Scott Gimple stopped by Washington D.C. to talk about things that are Walking Dead. And they promised the second half of season six is going to be nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster.
Which we know is zombie code for someone we love is going to die.
The Walking Dead is not so much about Zombies as it is about what people will do when faced with tragedy. Show watchers know that the answer to that is not good.
It seems to bring the worst out of the worst, while we stare blindly at those who believe the best is still out there. The Grimes Gang is honest in saying, unfortunately no; The best is behind us.
For sure we know the worst is in front of Tasha, Abraham and Daryl, who have met Negan on the road back to Alexandria.
We left the Alexandria survivors of the herd invasion donning their zombie guts costumes in an attempt to escape the town and the herd. Bets, based on the comic book and social media are that Sam, who won’t shut up, and Jessie and he become zombie food – which would if that happened – be a pivot point to Rick’s very loose grip on zombie reality.
Whiles the show is infamously tight lipped over the story trajectory, Lincoln did say that Rick is on a journey that will provide plenty of high highs, and low lows.
“Friends must think I am a sociopath,” Lincoln says. “We should be terrified if we do something right. If we are going to be creative, lets terrify ourselves.”
