The Walking Dead Cast Didn’t Want to Shoot the Season Finale – Find Out Why!

It’s going to be a gory Valentine’s Day for the fans of the popular zombie series from Fox, as The Walking Dead is set to return for its midseason premiere on February 14. For most of us who love watching this apocalyptic series, that’s exactly how we like it. More blood, more screams, more guts, and more glory – that’s the trademark of the Walking Dead.

And as the sixth season approaches its second half, more twists and turns are to be expected. Hey, it’s not The Walking Dead if it doesn’t have gut-wrenching plot twists. Remember what happened at the cove? Remember what happened to Bob’s leg? Remember the Governor? If you have no idea what we’re talking about, we can summarize it like this: bad things happened during those plot lines. Nothing good ever happens to our beloved survivors, and all of the rare happy moments quickly turn grim. That’s the kind of world they live in, and we haven’t even mentioned all the zombies.

With the midseason premiere, we can expect more of these tragic turns to happen, especially since they are about to exit the Alexandria Safe Zone arc (which as you may expect was not as safe after all because the residents were clueless about how to defend themselves from outside forces). When the walls broke down, all hell was unleashed, and our heroes were left with no choice but to walk amongst the “walkers” while wearing zombie guts, hoping they wouldn’t be spotted. It’s as disgusting as it sounds.

As the group leaves behind the safe zone, they will encounter a brand new threat – one that is far worse than anything or anyone they have ever encountered before: The Saviors.

It sounds good on paper, but the Saviors aren’t what they were named after. This group belongs to Negan, a character who is notoriously famous in the comic book series as an overall jerk, and as the person who killed the fan-favorite Glenn using his barbed wire-covered baseball bat Lucille. If he sounds demented to you, that’s because he is. And he is going to be introduced somewhere during the second half of Season Six.

The Saviors are going to spell trouble for Rick’s group, and it’s not going to be pretty. Things are gonna get worse very soon, because some of the survivors have already encountered a few members of the infamous group. What happens next is still unknown, but we’re hanging on to the edge of our seats.

Season Six is not going to end on a happy note, we can tell you that. In fact, the script for the finale has already made some of the actors physically ill, just by reading it! Andrew Lincoln, known for portraying the main hero Rick Grimes, said that it was his first time being late on the set, and it was because he woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t sleep after reading the Season Six finale. It’s that bad.

Co-star Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene, shared the same sentiment. “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.”

We could tell that it’s gonna get gory, and bloody awesome. As we said, that’s just how we like it.
