The Walking Dead‘s mid-season finale was quite the shocker!
After the ep, writer and executive producer Robert Kirkman gave an interview with EW about the episode. Here’s what he had to share. SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!
On keeping the viewers fooled: “It’s good to know people didn’t see it coming. That’s a big concern when you have this kind of story line and you are leading to that kind of reveal. You don’t want people to be expecting it, especially in the Walking Dead. I’m glad people are being caught off guard.”
On if Herschel knew Sophia was in the barn: “If I were to put on my detective hat I would say that, if Hershel did know that Sophia was in the barn, he might have just said, ‘Oh yeah, that girl’s sick, we’re keeping her in the barn.’ So it’s entirely possible that he didn’t know. We’ll find out very early on in the return episode coming up this February.”
On what is to come when new episodes return in February: “So there’s going to be tremendous amounts of conflict that comes from that and there’s going to be a lot of aftermath dealing with the shocking revelation and there’s going to be a lot of crazy new stuff thrown into the mix. I think we’re going to see some new characters very early on, introduced in our first episode back. There’s going to be a lot of cool stuff coming up.”
