No real spoilers.... just wetting the anticipation...

'Walking Dead' bloodbath: -- will die in 'crazy' finale

Quote
Last October, as Glen Mazzara was readying himself for the premiere of the third season of AMC's hit drama "The Walking Dead" – his first full season at the helm of the show that chronicles the tribulations of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse – he was feeling pretty invincible. "I'm very happy," Mazzara told RS, after taking over for the series' creator, Frank Darabont, the year before. "Everybody is on the same page. I feel like a kid in a candy store." Two months later, Mazzara was out as showrunner, replaced by one of the lead writers, Scott Gimple. The parting wasn't particularly bitter, but surely, the midseason shuffling suggests a floundering show that has lost its way, right?

Not exactly. "The Walking Dead" continues to be a ratings juggernaut. It's the most watched basic-cable drama in history, and currently draws more 18-to-49-year-olds than any show on TV. Mazzara chalks up his departure to "creative differences," but it didn't seem to impact the series any more than his predecessor's considerably less amicable parting did the season before. It's as if "The Walking Dead" is much like the shambling undead hordes it documents: Sure, you can pick a few off, but as a whole, this is a relentless, unstoppable force.

As the show closes in on the season three finale, two camps of survivors – one in a prison led by Rick Grimes, a small-town cop; the other in a walled town ruled over by a sly sociopath known as the Governor – are seemingly on a path toward all-out war. "We have two ghettoized communities fighting for their lives," says David Morrissey, the actor who plays the Governor. "If only they could join forces, but egos are not allowing them to."

Grimes, who is played by the show's star, Andrew Lincoln, has spent the better part of the season going bat@!$%# crazy, chasing visions of his dead, adulterous wife. In recent weeks, though, he has emerged from his PTSD haze to guide a band of misfits through the challenges of end-times survival, a not entirely unwelcome development for Lincoln himself. "It's nice to be ass-kicking again," he says. "Rick is a leader. He needs to be in action, saving people."

According to Robert Kirkman, a writer and executive producer on the show, who also writes the graphic novels upon which it is based, the remainder of the season will continue at the breathless pace that it has built to so far. "The episodes are all about ramping up the conflict between the Governor and Rick," he says. "It's about finding out where allegiances lie. There are a few surprises in store as to who is going to be doing what on which side. Those reveals are going to be startling."

For the season finale, Lincoln promises, there will be blood. "Twenty-seven people die," he says. "It's safe to say it is all hands to pumps. It's a crazy season finale." It's a good bet that among those 27 casualties will be some central figures in the cast. Part of "The Walking Dead's" mojo is its willingness to dispatch even its most beloved characters. "The reality is nobody is safe," says Morrissey. "But that's the ticket we bought." Next season, Kirkman says, viewers should expect changes. "We're not going to slow things down, but if I had a criticism of season three, it would be that we didn't focus on character development," he says. "We're going to try to step it up a notch in that department." He points to "Clear," one of the most well-received episodes this year, which focused on a road trip by Grimes, his son, Carl, and the samurai-sword-wielding warrior Micchone, as a template for the coming shifts in tone: 'We're going to focus on fewer characters per episode." Not coincidentally, "Clear" was written by new showrunner Gimple. Lincoln has had some discussions about where his character will go from here, but as he puts it, "I can't disclose any of them because they will kill me."

"Nobody is safe," says Morrissey. "But that's the ticket we bought."

Comic book legend Stan Lee’s Youtube channel World of Heroes has just launched a new series called Cosplay Piano where they mash together music themes you may recognize from movies and television with a bit of cosplay. First up is the theme from AMC’s The Walking Dead, covered by the intensely talented pianist Sonya Belosouva, and a bit of Violin play by a zombiefied Eriko Tsuji before she gets tragically shot down.

Welcome to the Tombs



A very good season finale and one that I didn't know what would happen as it played out. For starters, I'm actually surprised that they killed Andrea off. At least they gave her a good way to go out. She has been by far the most frustrating character on the show to rally behind because of all her poor decisions. In the end, it's explained why she made those choices and it made sense. As annoying as she was at times, I was hopeful that she would redeem herself and get back on the right track. Poor Milton, I kinda figured that he would join up with Rick and the gang. Sadly, that didn't happen and he paid for his betrayal with his life.

But the most interesting thing about this episode was Carl morphing into a mini-governor. The thing is, everything he told his father, his reasons and rationale made perfect sense. I knew that it wouldn't sit well with him when the Woodbury people came to live in the prison. Season 4 should be a good season. Everything is set up as it needs to be. I hope it doesn't disappoint.

'Walking Dead' cut shocking season finale scene

Quote
It's been several months since "The Walking Dead" aired its gory season three finale, but they're pretty hard to forget. What fan doesn't have Milton and Andrea's torture room and the horrors that occurred there emblazoned in their brains?

But it could have been worse — much worse.

Dallas Roberts, who played Milton, told Entertainment Weekly that he and Laurie Holden (Andrea) were called back to do reshoots on those final scenes months after the season wrapped.

As the actor explained, while the beating that began the finale wasn't originally included, "There was a lot more of Milton trying to open the door and him trying to free her from the chains." He also said that Milton was going to try and choke her to death with the chains so after his death he wouldn't end up turning her into a walker. Roberts added that though that doesn't work, a scene where he's "taking chunks out of Laurie Holden" was also nixed.

Ech. In the revamp, it's not as though there was much spared in terms of high emotion and blood, but there was less overt ... chunk-taking. Instead, Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) were on hand to burst in and rescue — if not save — Andrea.

Coleman admired both versions of the scene. "(When) we kick in the door and finally we get to (Andrea) ... it was an incredibly powerful, excruciating scene.... I was there for the revision and that was incredibly powerful ... but for us, it was excruciating," he told EW.

"That scene was something else," Martin-Green told the magazine. "To come to someone and to find them in the most vulnerable moment of their life, it was hard. The scene, it had a serious depth to it."

EW reports that the original version of the finale won't appear on the show's season three DVD/Blu-ray set out Aug. 27.

I'm okay with the finale cut of the scene. Any more than that would have been a bit too much.
