Melissa Teases Bad News for Carol Fans

October 10, 2016

Melissa McBride continues to tease a dark fate for her character Carol in The Walking Dead Season 7.

The actress shared a cryptic message to The Walking Dead TV panel audience at New York Comic Con 2016 about Carol’s future. Here’s what McBride had to say: “Every step she’s taken up to this moment has just devastated her…What is it about this world that makes us want to survive so much? That’s a huge question.”

There comments make us nervous. McBride has consistently talked about Carol’s dark path while promoting The Walking Dead Season 7 . Carol has always pulled through the darkness and survived despite the odds stacked against her. We’ve seen Carol’s resilience in The Walking Dead Season 5 when she covered herself in walker guts and made a makeshift missile launcher to rescue Rick’s group from the Terminus cannibals.

However, Carol isn’t doing so well by the end of The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. Carol wants peace and doesn’t believe she will get that in Alexandria. She’s starting to lose herself, and it could mean the show is preparing to say goodbye to the character. In the comics, Carol goes through a similar depression after she catches Tyrese cheating on her with Michonne. Carol feels alone and starts to distance herself from her daughter Sophia. She tries latching on to Rick and Lori, but fails to convince them to have an open marriage.

Carol then ties up a walker in the prison basketball court and lets it devour her. She essentially dies from suicide by walker. If Carol is too far gone, the show could have a similar fate for the character. At this point, if Carol has to kill people again she will probably turn the gun on herself. She can’t carry any more guilt and the only person who truly sees that is Morgan . He’s tried desperately to help her want to live; if Morgan fails Carol, it’s likely he’ll spiral back into his old ways.

Do you think Carol will make in past The Walking Dead Season 7? Let us know in the comments below. The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres Oct. 23 on AMC.

‘Walking Dead’ Season 7 Spoilers Are Perfect for Caryl Fans

September 01, 2016

The other day, “The Walking Dead” fans got “Caryl in Season 7” trending, and now The Spoiling Dead Fans has a report that Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) were both filming — together — in a scene for Season 7, Episode 10.

We last saw Daryl in Negan’s lineup-of-death at the end of Season 6. The first clip from Season 7 showed Dwight wearing Daryl’s vest, which didn’t bode well for Pookie. We last saw Carol with Morgan as they seemed to meet the first representatives from a survivor community called The Kingdom. That place, like a sister community to Hilltop, is run by a guy called King Ezekiel, and he has a pet tiger named Shiva.

There are 16 episodes to every season of TWD, so they are now shooting the second half. According to TSDF, Carol, Daryl, Ezekiel, and some Kingdom people were all shooting last week for Episode 10.

“The Walking Dead” Producer Explains Why Melissa Won’t Be At Comic-Con Panel

July 21, 2016

First thing first: No, we won’t be hearing who Negan’s victim during The Walking Dead’s San Diego Comic Con panel. The show’s executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed the news with Deadline in an interview where she discussed The Walking Dead, Aliens, Fear The Walking Dead, and Falling Water. And, more importantly, she reveals why one of The Walking Dead’s major cast members won’t be appearing at SDCC this year.

When Hurd was asked why Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier) wouldn’t be onstage for The Walking Dead’s Hall H panel, the producer explained, “The big thing really is our cast is so large right now that we couldn’t bring everyone. There’s a limitation at Comic-Con as to how many people can be onstage. So, we would love to have brought everyone, but we couldn’t.”

Of course, there have been and will still be fans who point to McBride’s absence as proof of the character’s possible demise. With fans still fiercely debating who’ll be killed by Negan next season, conspiracy theorists will use any and all evidence they can to support their beliefs. However, The Walking Dead team expected that kind of reaction.

In fact, Hurd said, “I think they read everything into the tea leaves at this point. There have been some very amusing theories based on a lot of sort of speculation based on who’s been in Georgia and who hasn’t…Not everyone is in every episode. The truth is the Hall H panel is for the most part the people who were where we left them in the last shot of Season 6, that’s sort of the lineup.”

As The Walking Dead has historically deviated somewhat from Robert Kirkman’s comics, fans are uncertain whether Negan’s deadly encounter with Rick’s group will be canon-compliant or not. Still, this hasn’t stopped fans from pouring over the source material in hopes of finding some ever elusive spoilers. Things were only made worse for fans when The Walking Dead released different photos featuring various characters sitting at the losing end of Negan’s bat, Lucille.

Fans can expect to get some information about the show’s upcoming seventh season as The Walking Dead is set to release the its season trailer along with a premiere date at SDCC. Hurd, a comic-con veteran, is excited to see what fans have to say about the show, telling Deadline that, “ I’m sure we’ll be hearing from people, very specifically, what they loved and what they didn’t about Season 6, but that’s the great thing about Comic-Con — it’s up close and personal.”

Melissa McBride breaks down the intense new episode of ‘The Walking Dead’

February 15, 2016

Our Walking Dead family is finally back together … but for how long?

After a long stretch of episodes where our regulars were separated and off fighting different fights, seeing everyone working together in last night’s midseason premiere was a glorious sight.

But, as regular viewers of AMC’s hit thriller know, it’s never long from the time one battle ends and another materializes and that’s what season 6B is all about.

As Melissa McBride, who brings a fierce heart to the show as Carol, told us in a preview for the return episode, there are many threats coming their way besides the imminent appearance of Jeffrey Dead Morgan as villainous Negan.

During our post-mortem chat, McBride revealed she’s more than a little excited to finally be working with a certain someone she doesn’t normally get screen time with as well as which characters are still in Carol’s heart and whether rules exist anymore in the post-apocalyptic world.

MASHABLE: This return episode really punctuated that the group is back together. Are they more invincible than ever or is there still a lot of fragility with them as a group?
MELISSA MCBRIDE: I think we all know better that nothing’s invincible in the world but they are certainly, I think, a stronger force. That’s the first time we’ve seen that whole community really band together and the stakes have never been higher either. And they really stepped up and stepped out of their fear and saw exactly how the world has changed and the threat of the walkers, especially in those great numbers face to face just trampling their community. They really all stepped forward to put them down and push them out. They come together and I love that. It’s so tragic, though.

This don’t happen a lot on the show but you had a few moments of silence in this episode before Morgan enters the room. Are there different challenges in those moments?
You know what? I love those quiet moments. I don’t care what I’m watching. I love to see characters just alone in their solitude, their private moments. I love to see what they do when no one’s watching. And I do love those thoughtful moments and you wonder what is going on in their mind, the thoughts that they’re thinking when they just take a second…I like it as an actor because it’s just a quiet, personal, private moment and they’re telling, you know, they’re very telling about that character.

What’s Carol thinking in those moments like that?
I’m thinking what are her thoughts … the situation she’s just found herself in and come out of and all that’s going on and the world’s tumbling down. As Carol, Carol’s thinking about herself. ‘Where am I at? What has this brought me to? What am I doing? What do I do with this?’

Moving forward, will we see Carol connecting with anybody that we haven’t really seen her with much before?
Yeah. Carol and Maggie are going to spend some time together. That’s going to be great. It’s great to finally get some good meaty stuff with Lauren. Our characters really have only shared a couple of scenes and just a few lines of dialogue so there’s some good meatier stuff coming. It’s something I’ve just looked forward to for a very long time so that was exciting for me. Then, obviously, we have guest appearances and characters come in. There’s a lot to look forward to.

Moving into these episodes, have you understood Carol differently in these episodes? Maybe there was something new about her you were able to explore.
There are changes and flips for all these characters in every season, every episode. That’s just the nature of evolving in what the world gives you. You trek through life and you turn a corner and here’s something else to deal with and to learn from and to grow from and to bounce off of and realize something new about yourself or to challenge the way you think about something.

Yeah, there’s changes ahead for all of these characters just because we keep living and dealing with life and what this world gives to us. In 6B there are definitely some corners [and] I experience different aspects of Carol that I have not yet. It’s exciting.

Glenn (Steven Yeun) has some dialogue in the episode where he talks about the people you carry with you even if they are no longer in the world. Who would those people be for Carol?
I think certainly Sophia and Lizzie, Laurie, T-Dog, Andrea…I think everyone in that core group. They’ve been traveling along, surviving together. They’re sacrificing themselves to different extents to keep everyone safe and unfortunately you have to do some horrible things to make that happen.

At this point, what are the rules for Carol as far as survival and killing? Are there rules left at this point?
I don’t think it’s a world without rules. I do think that her number one rule with conditions is that you eliminate the threat, just eliminate the threat. Leave out the liabilities and eliminate the threat.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Spoilers: Will Carol and Morgan Finally Say Goodbye in Season Finale?

January 10, 2016

As the mid-season premiere of ‘The Walking Dead’ season six draws near, several details about the finale have already made the headlines. According to The Spoiling Dead Fans, rivals Carol (Melissa McBride) and Morgan (Lennie James) could be facing grave dangers in episode 16.

As pointed out by the fan site, McBride and James both filmed a scene in November in which a “mystery male character” pointed “his gun at someone.” However, because of the scene being blocked off, it is unclear whether the said character will shoot the weapon or not.

Moreover, the Spoiling Dead Fans shared that a fighter “was seen circling over someone (possibly Carol).” He went on to speak to the man holding the weapon and leaned over the person lying on the ground. It remains unknown whether Morgan takes down the man, or the man is able to fight back and finally kill off Morgan.

According to witnesses, McBride looked untidy as she filmed the scene; the insiders shared that one side of her face had been either “very dirty or bruised.” They also claimed that she could have been the person lying on the ground.

While it is unclear whether the duo will be able to make it out of the season and to the next, actor Ross Marquand opened up to ComicBook.com last year and shared how he found the finale to be “the most rot, like emotionally rot, and dark episode” he has ever come across in his acting career.

“I’ve never seen or read an episode that is so dark and so compelling in my life and that’s the God’s honest truth,” stated Marquand, who takes on the role of Aaron on the hit zombie drama.

The actor admitted that the script was twisted enough to make his stop reading a couple of times.

“I told Andy, I don’t normally get so affected by scripts that I have to put them down, but I had to stop reading this at three different times,” he shared. “I couldn’t read it, it was messing me up. It was tough to read. It’s phenomenal writing but it’s just so emotionally dark and twisted that we had to put it down several times.”

“The Walking Dead” season six is set to return with episode nine, titled ‘No Way Out’ on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 9 p.m. on AMC. The official trailer for the episode can be viewed below.
