'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.
