Hurd Teases “Dead” Cliffhanger
Still reeling from the closing moments of this week’s Walking Dead?
Producer Gale Anne Hurd says you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
Hurd says her jaw dropped several times during the mixing of the next two installments and that she believes the second season cliffhanger could be bigger than season one’s cliffhanger.
“I have a feeling, even though people are inveterate tweeters during episodes, I have a feeling there may be some significant periods of silence because people may not be able to click on their keyboards,” she says.
Hurd said the storylines ramping up around the group’s last kiddo, Rick’s son Carl, will provide a fascinating lens for how much the world has changed since the walkers took over.
“The opportunity we have with Carl’s character is to see what it’s like with someone growing up in which this is the new normal,” she said. “You can’t get too attached, but you don’t want to lose your humanity at the same time. As a child you don’t know the difference, but as the parents you do, and that’s why I think Rick is who he is and does what he does in many instances because he is always trying to think, ‘What kind of example am I setting for Carl?’”
