The Walking Dead director Greg Nicotero describes filming the physical season finale
"This was much more physical," Nicotero says of the scene between Andrew Lincoln and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. "These guys, we started shooting this scene, and I think the first three hours of the day, the guys were really physical and kind of rolling around. And then I was shooting the up angle on Andy and getting his moments where he says, 'Save him,' and at that point, I needed to give the actors a break to catch their breath, and then we turned around and shot some other stuff." ALSO: Scott M. Gimple says of the Lauren Cohan situation: "We will be telling peeps what’s up with all that soon."

The Walking Dead boss talks Carl's death, says the comic book time jump could still happen
"We wanted to tell this story where Carl, by affecting the people around him, especially Rick, wants to change the world and change what the world is to them, and then keeping that piece of the book," says Scott M. Gimple. "And, by the way, when I say we’re taking it, that isn’t to say that we might not get there in another way, obviously, but (it led to using) a version of what happened in the book, one of maybe many versions you could see on the show. But it very much was about Carl’s story first. It sprung from Carl’s story."

The Walking Dead deserves credit for a bold move that “got us on Sunday”
The midseason twist was a “serious surprise,” a very controversial move that was needed since such surprises had become a rarity on the AMC series, says Ben Lindbergh. “One of the complaints frequently levied against latter-day Dead is the plot armor that protects any person of importance,” says Lindbergh. “If the series’ characters were more deftly drawn, we wouldn’t want them to die; if its events were more logically and painstakingly plotted, we wouldn’t be convinced that they deserve to. As it is, the combination of inconsistent, sporadically likable characters and implausibly close calls creates the sense among self-loathing hate-watchers that we’ve been robbed of blood that was rightfully ours — a hard-earned reward for suffering through seven seasons (and counting), long after learning to stop expecting something else.’

Andrew Lincoln: “I was desperate to be naked" in The Walking Dead zombie fight scene
“But they wouldn't let me be naked!” says Lincoln. “I said, 'One take,' I said, 'Please, with just the cowboy boots. Let's do that.' And for some reason, AMC weren't completely comfortable."
