TWD Season 5: Beth Won’t Be BBQ’d – Now Shut the Hell Up Already!

walking-dead-daryl-beth-season-4

We’re only 4 days out since the finale of Season 4 of The Walking Dead and the speculations regarding Season 5 are already in full bloom. But I think I’m doing a public service to everyone by reporting this news – Beth will not be Terminus barbeque when the series returns for its fifth season in October 2014.

Here’s what Robert Kirkman had to say about the theory:

“The Beth BBQ question is a big one. I’ve seen that a lot on Twitter,” he recently revealed. “When a theory is as prevalent as that one is, it’s more than likely not true. If there ever was a storyline where we were going a different way and the audience seemed to be ahead of us to that point, it would be extremely unfortunate and I would certainly not feel too good about how well we’re doing our jobs. Thankfully this doesn’t seem to be the case.”

In regards to Beth’s whereabouts, he goes on to say:

“I don’t know! She got taken, she’s not back yet… I can say that Terminus has a lot of signs out there and it’s certainly possible that all kinds of different people out there could make their way to Terminus in some way, so maybe Beth shows up to Terminus in Season 5… maybe not. I think I can say that Beth’s story is not over. We’ll see her again, maybe in Season 5, maybe not.”

Now that Kirkman has weighed in on this, can this argument finally be settled so we don’t have to listen to this theory for the next 7 months?

If Emily Kinney (Beth) is not, in fact, going to be cannibal BBQ, is it safe to say she might play a much larger role in Season 5? One can only speculate what role that will be, but for now we’re going to leave it be. We’re sure whatever role she plays will be very instrumental to the plot. For the time being, we’re just too tired to speculate.

If you can’t help yourself from theorizing, feel free to sound off with your Beth speculations in the comments section below.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale: Deleted Scene From Terminus [PHOTO]

Season 4 of AMC’s hit zombie drama ‘The Walking Dead’ wrapped last night to both positive and negative reviews from die-hard fans of the show. We now know that things did not shape up so well for our friends when they arrived at Terminus. We quickly discovered Terminus was not what it was advertised to be. Instead, our group of survivors was greeted with what appears to be cannibalistic cultists – barbequing survivors trapped in their “sanctuary.”

In this exclusive deleted scene of Rick, Michonne and Daryl from the Season 4 finale, we see something even more sinister going on at Terminus. Photo courtesy of SpoilerTV.

Unfortunately the photo seems to create more questions than answers (in typical The Walking Dead fashion). Based on the photo, it appears as though a number of human remains are surrounded by chained walkers. Are the folks at Terminus feeding survivors to walkers? This doesn’t exactly seem to match up with the theory that Terminus is a group of cannibals, as it wouldn’t make sense to waste “fresh meat.” Or could we be seeing a similar storyline to The Governor and Hershel, where they believe their once living loved ones are just sick and thus need to be cared for?

Honestly, we have no freaking idea! We’d love to hear your theories. Sound off in the comments section below.

‘Walking Dead’ Ups Masterson, Serratos and West to Series Regulars for Season 5

the-walking-dead-season-5-christian-serratos-alanna-masterson-andrew-j-west-amc

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) will be promoted to series regulars for Season 5 of The Walking Dead.

This comes as great news to many fans, as Tara has quickly gained much fanfare from enthusiasts of the show. And seeing that Rosita is the female equivalent to Daryl Dixon – the guys aren’t complaining much either.

This is especially important news for recently introduced West, who plays Terminus leader Gareth, as he will reprise his role in at least the first half of Season 5. This means that there will not be a quick resolution to the Terminus conflict.

Regarding Gareth, Robert Kirkman had this to say:

“Seeing Gareth and Rick and the people of Terminus and our survivors go head-to-head is going to be interesting. There is a very deep, dark and storied history to Terminus and how these people came to be that will be revealed in season five.”

Their promotions come nearly a year after The Walking Dead promoted Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) to regulars for season four. This season, the series also added Cudlitz (Abraham Ford) and McDermitt (Eugene Porter) as well as Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob Stookey) as regulars.

Is October here yet? Are you excited the Terminus storyline will be developed more in Season 5, or would you rather a quick resolution? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!

The Walking Dead: Did AMC Accidently Confirm A Daryl/Beth Romance?

Daryl-Beth-Romance-Confirmed-By-AMC

If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead recently, it hasn’t been hard to notice the blossoming relationship between fan-favorite Daryl Dixon and the recently acknowledged Beth Greene. The two have been spending some major time together after being separated from the rest of the group following the Governor’s prison raid in the Season 4 mid-season finale.

Speculations have been circling around whether Beth and Daryl are “romantically involved.” Up until now, nothing has been explicitly stated to confirm or deny the allegations; however, all evidence seems to suggest otherwise – e.g. consistent flirting, hand holding, piggy back rides, etc.

Fortunately for inquisitive fans, it appears as though AMC recently made a slip up on their own website, confirming the rumors that at least one of the characters has feelings for the other. In the details section of the episode guide for Episode 13 “Alone”, AMC accidently confirmed that Daryl’s feelings for Beth were not platonic. After the blunder went viral on Twitter, AMC quickly updated the website to adjust the wording to something more subtle. Check out the before and after screen shots below:

Before:

After:

Will Daryl Dixon Die? Actor Lands New Role in Kirkman’s Sci-Fi Film

Norman-Reedus-Djimon-Hounsou-Robert-Kirkman-Air

We recently learned Robert Kirkman is producing a sci-fi movie under the Skybound banner. Kirkman will be teaming up with David Alpert, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Chris Ferguson, Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pasetto to produce a film called Air.

The film will feature The Walking Dead’s own, Norman Reedus. Reedus will be joined by Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Guardians of the Galaxy, Fast & Furious 7) as one of the two leading characters.

Plot of Air: When Earth’s atmosphere is all but destroyed, humanity’s last hope is the personnel cryogenically frozen in an underground bunker. Reedus and Hounsou play the caretakers of the facility whose sanity is tested as they struggle to survive in the last bit of habitable space on Earth.

Does this spell bad news for Daryl Dixon on ‘The Walking Dead’? Historically speaking, actors who score new roles while on The Walking Dead have typically ended up being killed at some point during the season. Last year, it was reported that Dallas Roberts, who played Milton Mamet in Season 3 of The Walking Dead, landed a new role on Unforgettable. This led many to believe that Milton would be killed off by the end of the season. Which, as it turned out, ended up being true.

As fans of the show, we are also aware of the grueling filming schedule for ‘The Walking Dead.’ Filming typically lasts around 7 months, from May to November. As of now, no filming or release date has been set for Air, so it’s yet to be seen whether filming will cause a conflict.

Are you excited to see Kirkman produce a sci-fi flick, or would his time be better spent focusing on ‘The Walking Dead’ television and comic book series, along with the countless other projects he works on. Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

New Details & Cover Art Revealed for Issue 127 of The Walking Dead

The-Walking-Dead-Issue-127-CoverIn the Letter Hacks section of a recent issue of ‘The Walking Dead’, Robert Kirkman promised a very different comic book starting with Issue 127 after the conclusion of All Out War. We speculated that Kirkman could be hinting at the death of The Walking Dead’s main protagonist, Rick Grimes. On our latest episode of Comic Quickies, Dennis and I discussed the possibility of this death.

Although unlikely, Kirkman has always toyed with fans about killing off the beloved Rick Grimes. However, new cover art for Issue 127 reveals an onslaught of new characters for the book – and none that we recognize. The issue also bares the tagline: “In the aftermath of ALL-OUT WAR we discover… A NEW BEGINNING.” Who is this new group of survivors? Could Kirkman possibly replace the existing group of Survivors with a whole new group?

The-Walking-Dead-Issue-127-Cover-Full

Better question is: who is the mystery woman on the cover of Issue 127? Our best guess is either Lori 2.0…or Judith. Because we all know that neither of them ACTUALLY died during the prison raid. Just kidding. But then again, you never know with Kirkman at the helm. Or maybe it’s a flash-forward sequence and the woman is actually the child of Maggie and Glen. Now there’s a twist. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

In additional news, The Walking Dead also announced that Issue 127 will be a double-feature –that’s right, 48 pages of Walking Dead goodness!

What do you think Kirkman and Co. have in store for comic book fans this spring? Feel free to sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.

Titles and Descriptions for Season 4B of The Walking Dead – Eps. 9-16

the-walking-dead-season-4-part-2With the mid-season premiere only a few days away, fans have had a couple of months to speculate about the second half of Season 4 of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Fortunately for us, AMC recently released titles and descriptions for the last 8 episodes of the season. As usual, they provide little in the way of what will actually happen during the episodes.

Episode 9, “After”: “Rick deals with old wounds; prison residents consider if survival will be enough.”

Episode 10, “Inmates”: “In the quest for stability and safety, the group faces many obstacles.”

Episode 11, “Claimed”: “A number of immediate threats plague Rick; group members deal with their past.”

Episode 12, “Still”: “An enlightening mission springs from a request from one of the group members.”

Episode 13: “Alone”: “One group finds a shelter; a group has a realization about protection.”

Episode 14, “The Grove”: “After establishing a new shelter, the group considers things returning to the way they used to be.”

Episode 15, “Us”: “Survivors rely on brutality and faith.”

Episode 16, “A”: Many paths collide; Rick faces sheer brutality; the group struggles to survive.

What are your expectations for the remaining half of the season based on the titles and descriptions. Feel free to sound off with your speculations in the comments section below!

The Walking Dead Comic Spoilers: Is Rick Grimes’ Death Imminent?

Rick-Grimes-The-Walking-Dead-Comics

Fans of The Walking Dead comic book series are well aware that Rick Grimes has seen his fair share of life-threatening ordeals throughout the course of 119 issues. From surviving the initial days of the zombie apocalypse to battling The Governor, one of the most despised villains in comic book history, Rick has been virtually untouchable. Unfortunately, he seems to have met his match with Negan – the comics latest potty-mouthed bad boy hell bent on destroying everything Rick Grimes stands for.

Up until now, fans never truly considered the death of Rick Grimes as an imminent concern. However, in the latest issue of Letter Hacks, the fan-mail portion of each new issue of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman hints at big changes to come starting with Issue #127 – the first issue to be released after the conclusion of All Out War. He writes:

“Rest assured ALL OUT WAR is taking us to some very new, very different and very exciting places. This will be a drastically different book starting with issue 127, but that’s all I’m going to say.”

Is Robert Kirkman hinting at the death of the comic book’s main protagonist? At this point it wouldn’t really surprise us, as the story always seemed to be more focused on Carl’s journey as a child of the apocalypse rather than Rick’s personal memoir. Either way, it hasn’t stopped fans of the graphic novels from speculating about the future of the comic. From theories about potential “flash-forwards” involving Carl as a grownup to the deaths of other major fan favorite characters including Michonne and Maggie, fans will have to wait until the end of April when All Out War comes to its conclusion.

What are your thoughts about Robert Kirkman’s statement about a “drastically different book” starting with issue 127? Are you anticipating the death of Rick Grimes? If not, what other changes could be made that would result in such a drastic change? Sound off in the comments section below.

The Walking Dead Season 4: Andrew J. West Cast As ‘Remix’ Character

Andrew-J-West-The-Walking-Dead

Andrew J. West has boarded the AMC zombie drama and appears in the second half of the season, with an option to become a series regular in season five.

After adding Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos as iconic comic characters Abraham, Eugene and Rosita, respectively, the zombie drama will add another major player to its ranks. Greek alum Andrew J. West has boarded the series based on Robert Kirkman‘s comics, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Character details are being kept under wraps, but West will appear in the second half of The Walking Dead‘s fourth season and play Gareth, a character who does not appear in the long-running Image/Skybound series on which the AMC show is based. However, sources tell THR that while Gareth might not be playing someone from the comics, he is a remix of sorts of an unidentified character from the series. Gareth will have what sources say is a big presence and play an important character on the drama from showrunner Scott M. Gimple.

West will be credited as a guest star in season four with an option to be promoted to a series regular in the recently announced fifth season. The young actor, whose credits also include Suburgatory, Castle, Body of Proof, The Whole Truth and CSI, becomes the latest addition to the cast. Like the debuts for Cudlitz, McDermitt and Serratos’ characters, the exact episode in which West will make his first appearance is being kept close to the vest.

For his part, Gimple — a longtime fan of the comics — has taken a “remix” approach to Kirkman’s source material. “In some ways, the things that divert from the comic this year have actually served being closer to the comic in some ways,” the new showrunner told THR ahead of the fourth season premiere. “There’s going to be some looping around to the comic and remixing. That’s how I essentially look at it: It’s a remix of the comic.”

West is repped by ICM Partners and John Pierce at The Group. The Walking Dead has two more episodes left in the first half of its fourth season before its winter hiatus. The series will return for its second half in February.

What do you think of this casting announcement? Who will West play from the comics? Sound off in the comments section below.

The Walking Dead Season 4 – Spoilers from the Set – Character Deaths/Appearances & Filming Locations

The-Walking-Dead-Season-4-Sonequa-Martin-Green

We recently received some interesting news from our TWD Insider “Sophia’s Babydoll” regarding cast deaths, appearances and filming locations for Season 4 of The Walking Dead. If you would like to remain spoiler free, please turn away now or forever hold your peace.

As the majority of you know, a flu-like virus has recently infiltrated the prison causing many residents, even some main characters, to fall ill. If you listen to our podcast, we’ve speculated that this is a ploy by the producers to make it appear as though “no one is immune to the virus, even the main characters.” To date, Sasha and Glen have both fallen victim to the deadly virus. As of now, those are the only main characters that appear to have been infected.

This has left many to wonder whether Sasha or Glen will survive this season. But according to recent reports, Sonequa Martin-Green (aka Sasha) was seen in Newnan, Georgia in late October filming with Lauren Cohen (aka Maggie).  Evidently, they were fighting a bunch of walkers while filming Episode 13 – so it’s safe to assume that Maggie and Sasha both survived the mega-flu epidemic.

Also, Tyreese, Daryl, Rick, Carol, Michonne and Glen have all been seen within the last couple of weeks filming episodes 12 and 14 (they usually film in order but they filmed 14 and then 13 for some unapparent reason).

Last but not least, AMC recently applied for and received permission to film in Grantville, GA again – possibly in a cemetery. If you recall, this is where we last saw the deranged  Morgan. Rumors are still surfacing; however, Lenny James (who plays Morgan)  has not been spotted in town yet.

Based on this news, we can assume that all of the main characters will survive the prison flu and Morgan could possibly make another appearance in Season 4. What do you think of this recent news? Sound off in the comments section below.
