The past two months of The Walking Dead have led to this—the midseason finale, in which the survivors and Woodbury collide. Showrunner Glen Mazzara recently answered some burning questions about their big confrontation. [Spoilers ahead!]
At this point, Rick's group is scattered all over the place. Glenn and Maggie are being held hostage in Woodbury, where an oblivious Andrea also lives. Meanwhile, Michonne's hooked up with Rick, who's planned a search and rescue. Mazzara wouldn't confirm whether Michonne and Andrea reunite, but he did say she'll "definitely" come face to face with the Governor. That should be interesting, considering Merle told him she was dead.
Last week's episode ended with Rick, Daryl, Oscar and Michonne hiding in the shadows, ready to pounce. Mazzara exclaims, "It's on! They're knocking down those gates!" Within the hour, expect some major revelations. Andrea will finally see the Governor for who he really is. "The veil is lifted," Mazzara says.
In typical Walking Dead fashion, the finale (titled "Made to Suffer") will leave us hanging. The episode was written by Robert Kirkman, and Mazzara teases, "You won't believe you have to wait two months to find out what happens next."
We've lost lots of characters in a short period of time. Prepare yourselves for more casualties. "It's the midseason finale, there have to be some deaths!"
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
