The Walking Dead Season 2 Finale: Glen Mazzara Teases: “There Will Be More Bloodshed!”

The Walking DeadTonight is the night where AMC airs the Season 2 finale of its top rated show The Walking Dead.

“We’re on a good killing spree right here,” the show’s Executive Producer Glen Mazzara tells a group of reporters via conference call regarding the recent string of casualties, including major characters Shane and Dale. And yes, that killing spree is definitely continuing on tonight’s highly anticipated episode.

Here’s what Mazzara had to say in an interview to eonline.com. During the hour-long episode, Mazzara promises bloodshed and he says no character is safe. “These characters have felt that they are safe on this farm and they’ve been wrong… No character is safe. We have examined killing every character on this show.”

He also promises a cliffhanger! “I will guarantee that people will watch this finale and want to know what comes next. The diehards will say they can’t wait for October,” Mazzara teases. “We’re setting up stories and nice payoffs of emotional stories that open up other stories in season three. People are going to have questions in a good way when it cuts to black.”

Glen Mazzara continues by talking about Rick, his leading man, who killed Shane in the last episode.
‘Rick is the leader of the group. This season has always been questions of his leadership. We open episode one with him on the roof, the world around him–these deaths and how is it developing for Rick? What does he do with these people? How are we focusing the show on Rick? It all leads to Rick killing Shane. Rick took action in a very big way. That’s a big statement we’re telling about our main character. He’s evolving as a person and a leader. That killing was a lot messier than the one in the bar. What is he willing to do as life gets harder?”

As far as Carl goes, Mazzara says that “He’s growing up in this world where everyone else is trying to hold onto the pre-apocalyptic world and if he survives, will grow up in a world where the pre-apocalyptic world will be a very distant memory.”

In other The Walking Dead news, it has been announced that Michael Rooker, Daryl’s trouble-making older brother, will be returning in Season 3 as Merle Dixon.

Tonight, right after the end of the episode of The Walking Dead, AMC will air the live season finale of the Talking Dead.

The Walking Dead’s Season 2 Finale, “Beside the Dying Fire,” airs tonight at 9/8c on AMC. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s all-new episode.
