Tonight’s episode of AMC’s zombie show The Walking Dead found Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes settling in at his new prison home. And by “settling in” we mean ensuring the demise of many of the prisoners who, literally, popped up at the end of last week’s show. “In the Walking Dead, people have to die!” chuckles executive producer, and Walking Dead comic writer, Robert Kirkman, the callous bastard.

Below, Kirkman talks more about the episode, whether Daryl and Carol really are “screwing around” — and lunching on owls. Woo-hoo! READ FULL STORY »
