TWD Director Teases Season 10 Finale’s “Jaw-Dropping” Ending

June 06, 2020

“People’s jaws are gonna drop” over the final minutes of The Walking Dead’s tenth season, teases season finale director Greg Nicotero. The episode, pushed from its April 12 air date amid the coronavirus crisis, picks up where “The Tower” left off: with Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming), Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and other survivors trapped inside an abandoned hospital tower swarmed by the legion of zombies steered by Whisperer Beta (Ryan Hurst). To escape a certain doom, Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), Kelly (Angel Theory) and others must infiltrate the walker horde fearing it’s a mission not everyone will survive.

“It’s one of my favorite episodes of the season,” Nicotero told FANDOM. “What’s great about our show, and what Angela [Kang, showrunner] has done so well, is really kept the momentum of the story moving forward. Where we last left everyone was that Beta and the horde was surrounding the tower, and the finale picks up right where we left off.”

Trapped by the “giant, massive” army of “thousands of zombies surrounding where they’re safe,” our group faces their greatest challenge just as Maggie (Lauren Cohan) re-enters the story and begins a new chapter of The Walking Dead.

“There’s a lot of character storylines that are [addressed] — you get little bits of information here, here, here, and you want to end that chapter and start the next chapter in the finale,” Nicotero said. “We address lots of stuff with Daryl, lots of stuff with Negan, lots of stuff with Beta, lots of stuff with Carol.”

Nicotero added, “I think it’s already been revealed that Maggie’s return is in the finale, and it tees us up so well for Season 11 that it’s a little agonizing for me to not be able to talk about it. Because the last two minutes of the finale, people’s jaws are gonna drop.”

While explaining why AMC was forced to postpone the season finale, Nicotero promised the episode “will not disappoint” when it airs later this year.

Kang earlier revealed the episode — which also follows Eugene (Josh McDermitt), King Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) and new ally Princess (Paola Lázaro) on a race against time to meet the new community represented by Eugene’s radio contact Stephanie (Margot Bingham) — will end on a cliffhanger.

“I’ll just say that there’s some big stuff and there is a cliffhanger, without getting into what exactly that is,” Kang previously told Entertainment Weekly. “But I think hopefully it will be exciting.”

Daryl and Carol Described as “Soulmates”

September 25, 2019

The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang has once again addressed Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol’s (Melissa McBride) special bond ahead of the season 10 premiere, describing them as “soulmates”.

Having previously spoken about the possibility of romance between the two characters, Kang has now shed a little more light on the nature of their relationship. While it might not necessarily be a romantic one, the showrunner says they “love each other” nonetheless.

Speaking to TVLine, Kang teased that Daryl and Carol “have a very big storyline together” for the upcoming season, and that although they are sometimes on “divergent tracks”, their connection is always strong.

“They are best friends,” she said. “I think they are soulmates, whether or not their relationship ever goes into romantic territory. They are tied to each other in this world and have been through so much together.”

She continued: “They love each other and they trust each other. They care what happens to the other. And yet that can be very complicated when there’s so much trauma and this bigger thing that’s taking over the communities.”

Kang previously revealed that she’d spoken to Reedus about a potential relationship for Daryl, saying: “We’ve talked about, ‘What does a relationship for Daryl look like? Is he capable of it? Where is his heart?’ All of that.

“Norman thinks very deeply about his character and has such good instincts, so we like to kind of check in with him and ask, ‘What are you thinking about this?'”
