Why Did Father Gabriel Leave the Church & Where Is He Going?

father-gabriel-seth-gilliam-crossed

During last night’s episode of The Walking Dead, fans were treated to a more in-depth story line regarding the mysterious priest, Father Gabriel (played by Seth Gilliam). In episode 7 “Crossed”, Gabriel struggles with coming to terms with what happened in his church. Carl’s insistence on him selecting a weapon to defend himself also doesn’t help the matter.

Father Gabriel ends escaping the church once Rick and group head to Grady Memorial Hospital to retrieve Carol and Beth. This led many fans to wonder what exactly Gabriel was planning – seeing as he is less than capable of surviving on his own outside the confines of his church. Continue reading

Emily Kinney Spotted On Set During Last Days of S5 Filming?

In a rather interesting turn of events, Emily Kinney was reportedly spotted on set in Georgia during the last few days of Season 5 filming – which evidently wraps up today.

In a new photo that has been floating around the internet, you can see Emily Kinney (aka Beth Greene) walking around the Alexandria Safe Zone. Although she isn’t filming and doesn’t appear to be “in character”, that doesn’t necessarily mean she hasn’t been either. Continue reading

Kirkman on Midseason – “Deadly, Unexpected Events to Unfold”

robert-kirkman-interviewIt’s safe to say that this has been one of the most highly anticipated seasons of The Walking Dead since its creation. With Scott Gimple taking complete reigns over the show, he’s made it his own – his attention to detail and dedication to the comic book source material has shown through and through. Season 5 has been pursuing some major story lines in only the first 6 episodes – the adventures of Beth; Eugene’s big reveal about Washington D.C.; the Terminus/Hunters massacre, to name a few. As we steadily (and rather quickly) approach the midseason finale, everything seems to be coming to a head.

With that, fan theories and potential spoilers for the midseason finale have been making the rounds across the web. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Kirkman weighed in with his teasers for the midseason finale, adding additional fuel to the fire. Continue reading

Kirkman Wants In On The Beth/Maggie Conversation

Robert Kirkman,  Lauren CohanOn the Talking Dead two weeks ago, Emily Kinney (aka Beth Greene) attempted to answer why her on-screen sister Maggie hasn’t been on the hunt for her since she was kidnapped in Season 4. For most fans of the show, Kinney’s response was a little lackluster.

“I don’t know. I think Maggie is just focused on surviving,” said Kinney. “They’ve all been through a lot and lost a lot of people, and I think she’s just really focused on what she needs to do at the moment. So that’s why…she hasn’t really had a lot of time to like go…”

We weren’t satisfied with that answer, and it didn’t seem like fans of the show were either. The Walking Dead has spent four season building up Maggie as one of the primary female leaders within the group, but this recent character flaw has resulted in many fan’s questioning their love for Maggie Greene.

Whose Body is Daryl Burning in Episode 6 “Consumed”?

The Talking Dead offers a lot of information for fans interested in learning behind the scenes details and fun executive producer insights about their favorite show The Walking Dead. But what most of us wait for each week is the “sneak peak” they release at the end of the episode.

On the most recent episode of The Talking Dead, the preview for next week’s episode “Consumed” featured Daryl and Carol burning a body on what appears to be a rooftop in Atlanta. Chris Hardwick, host of The Talking Dead, prompted further discussion and fan theories when he made a comment that the body appeared “Beth-sized” – cue hysteria! Continue reading

Spoilers for the most recent episode of The Walking Dead, as well as The Walking Dead comic book series. You have been warned.

Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead entitled “Self Help” featured the back story of Sergeant Abraham Ford. Up until now, not much was known about the mysterious military man hell bent on getting Eugene and Rosita to Washington D.C. to “save the world.” But on last night’s episode, fans learned about the events that led up to Abraham and Eugene joining forces to fulfill their mission.

Why Hasn’t Maggie Looked for Her Sister Beth, According to Emily Kinney?

the-walking-dead-beth-maggieSince Emily Kinney’s character Beth went missing in Season 4, many fans have been wondering why Maggie (played by Lauren Cohan) hasn’t been more interested in finding her sister. It’s not only the fact that Maggie has made no efforts to search, rather it hasn’t even appeared to cross her mind.

After Episode 4 (Slabtown) aired last Sunday – the long awaited “Bethisode” – Chris Hardwick prodded Emily Kinney for an answer on The Talking Dead. And, well, her response was a little lackluster:

“I don’t know. I think Maggie is just focused on surviving,” said Kinney. “They’ve all been through a lot and lost a lot of people, and I think she’s just really focused on what she needs to do at the moment. So that’s why…she hasn’t really had a lot of time to like go…” Continue reading

Will Daryl and Beth Get Romantic? Emily Kinney Weighs In!

daryl-beth-relationship-the-walking-deadCan you hear the blood curdling screams of fan girls around the country yet? After Beth and Daryl appeared to be getting a little touchy feely during Season 4, many fans speculated that Daryl had dropped Carol on her ass for a new, hot young thing. However, since Emily Kinney’s character Beth went missing during the latter half of Season 4, all we’ve had to go off of is fan theories and possible confirmations on the part of AMC. Continue reading
