Jeffrey Dean Morgan shared a few points (spoiler free) on what he felt during the filming of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 6 finale episode. He totally understands our frustration but believes that the writers made the right call. Morgan says that all we can do is trust in the showrunners and writers to deliver a fantastic story in season 7 along with the reveal of what transpired in the finale episode of season 6. Below are some quotes from the EW interview with Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan talks about The Walking Dead Season 6 finale:
Well, I didn’t know it was going to be a cliffhanger until I watched the show. That’s just how it was done in my world. I don’t know if any of the cast knew exactly how it was going to end, which kind of caused a lot of the uncertainty and emotion that was going on. That said, in talking to Scott and Robert [after the finale], I think that their explanation was that it was the end of the story for that season, and that Rick has lost control and there’s Negan, and Negan has all the control.
And I think that’s where they wanted to end the story, and it’s not about the death of that person, and then the death of the person is going to kick off season 7, and season 7 will be a big part of, obviously, who is on the receiving end of Lucille? I understand the fans’ frustration, I get that; that being said ... I have to trust these writers and showrunners. They know what they’re doing; a lot of people watch for 6 seasons, and I believe that they’ll be back to see who met Lucille and as the story continues to grow.
