‘The Walking Dead‘ season 6 finale is fast approaching and the single word on the tip of most peoples tongues is ‘Negan’. Last week we left off with Daryl seemingly getting shot somewhere in the upper torso. One thing we do know is that the show has been getting closer to the comic in recent episodes and this season has been non stop action. The good new is we get a 90 minute season finale. Now all they need is to set up a therapy hot line for fans to call just in case one of the main group gets it.
Cast and creatives recently dropped some hints along with their thoughts on the season finale.
Scott M. Gimple (showrunner)
“The midseason finale I described as claustrophobic. I would say that the finale, in some ways, is a descent into paranoia.”
Greg Nicotero (exec producer/finale director)
“I don’t think I’d say deadly; I think there’s a sense of dread that is palpable.”
Gale Anne Hurd (exec producer)
“It goes where everyone is wondering if it will go. Jeffrey Dean Morgan brings it. It’s going to be the longest summer ever, thank god we’ve got Fear the Walking Dead. People are going to be shocked and surprised — that’s what we do.”
Danai Gurira (Michonne)
“It’s epic, it’s harrowing. I think it redefines finale. I can’t tell you how it goes but it truly redefines it. I don’t think we’ve ever seen one like this.”
Melissa McBride (Carol)
“I’d agree with Robert. [The finale is] like falling into a black hole and wondering what is on the other side. It’s very dark.”
Lauren Cohan (Maggie)
“Don’t even say the word ‘finale’ to me! I have no idea how to explain it; all I know is it leaves you in the most uncertain place that you’ve ever been with the show.”
The Walking Dead season six finale airs Sunday, April 3 from 9-10:30 p.m.
