News: A Collection Of Walking Dead Brain Bits

Here is a collection of news bites that apply to that one zombie show called The Walking Dead.

Lauren Cohan, the actress that plays Maggie, was recently on Live With Kelly and spoke about the upcoming episode, when she found out who would die, and dealing with not knowing who was leaving the cast. She said that:

"It was very touch and go. We had actually a, we filmed everybody's ending, demise, so there was honestly like some thoughts sometimes "well, if they change their mind they'll have it on tape," but no, we sort of knew like at the end of last season what was going to happen, and had time to make our farewells and begin to cope with it."

She also spoke with EW about Maggie's motivations now that Glenn has been killed. "Negan gives Maggie vengeance, and I don’t think that she’s a vengeful person, but it’s going to be a really interesting push and pull this season," Cohen told "You’ll see how she lives on in honor of Glenn and in vengeance of Negan, and it’s a real war in her brain, and in protection of the baby. I really liked the fact that Glenn says, “I’ll find you,” because she takes him with her. It’s difficult to even encapsulate the grief like that." also interviewed actress Katelyn Nacon about her role as Enid and what may take place this season, specifically whether her character was taking on the story of Sophia from the comic book. The last time we saw her Carl had locked her in a closet in order to protect her. In the interview, she talks about getting out of the closet, her relationship with Carl, and possibly taking on the Sophia storyline. Check out the video below.

For those questioning the motivation behind Ezekiel feeding walkers to the pigs that he gives to Negan's group, interviewed actor Khary Payton about it. He said:

"Hey, man, if the Mafia dude comes over and makes you a deal, and he's like, 'I want a bunch of pigs and they better be a nice size,' and you've got limited options, you go fill a bunch with zombie guts," Payton said. "There seems to be no end in sight as far as the supply of zombie guts. I got to feed my people, too, so I'm going to feed them the good stuff!"

There is also some precedence in the comics that would suggest that eating zombies does not poison people, or somehow turn them into zombies. Issue 117 of the comic series saw Ezekiel's tiger Shiva eat a walker and end up not being affected by it, so animals are not affected by the virus. There was also the events that took place in Season 5 where the cannibal group had eaten part of Bob's leg after he had already contracted the virus.
