Scott M. Gimple And Robert Kirkman Comment On ‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale | TV News
Last night’s finale to The Walking Dead has caused more backlash than actual praise, Facebook and twitter rocking with the anger at the decision not to show who Negan – played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan – killed from the core cast. Many loyal viewers had felt that the season had been culminating at Negan’s arrival, the decision causing outcry. Executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman commented on the finale:
“First of all, as a fan, I love cliffhangers. I love that tension. I love the anticipation of finding out what it is. If you read the comic book series, I think pretty much every issue ends with a big cliffhanger… And I think that’s a lot of fun. But this story, the cliffhanger isn’t the story. The story of the episode, and Scott and Matt Negrete did such a great job of setting up how confident Rick was going into this”.
“This episode is about the loss of that confidence. It’s about changing that mindset. It’s about tearing Rick Grimes down and that’s the conclusion of this story. So while it does seem like a cliffhanger, that’s the conclusion. And the story of who died, the story of what comes next, of who Negan killed, of what comes after that, that’s really the story of season 7”.
