'The Walking Dead': Creator Robert Kirkman on the killer midseason finale and what's next

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead.]

Destruction, terror and mayhem are not just the lyrics to an awesome LL Cool J song. They also properly describe what went down on last night’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead. In his thirst for revenge, the Governor took Hershel and Michonne hostage, and then sliced off Hershel’s head when Rick refused to have his people leave the safety behind the fence. The Governor then stormed the prison with his tank before being killed himself through a combination of Rick’s fists, Michonne’s sword, and Lilly’s gun. Now, the prison survivors are scattered and we will have to wait until the show returns on Feb. 9, 2014 for answers. Or will we? We chatted with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to get his thoughts on what went down, why it went down, and what to expect next. Read on for all the intel! (Also check out our interview with Scott Wilson, who played the dearly departed Hershel.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, you bastard. How could you do that to poor Hershel?
ROBERT KIRKMAN: He was the moral compass of the group and it’s always good to lose the moral compass. It will all become clear when we finally show you the back half of season 4. It wasn’t enough for these characters to lose the prison. They also had to feel some kind of loss over something important and Hershel was that thing that was important to each and every character, so it made the most sense to take him off the table and see how it affects the characters, which we’ll see when we come back in a bit. So there’s a lot of cool stuff ahead because of that. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Scott Wilson on Hershel's shocking scene

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead.]

He is often referred to as the moral compass of the group but that compass was sliced and diced by a katana-wielding maniac on last night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Yes, the unthinkable happened as kindly veterinarian/farmer Hershel Greene was killed by the Governor after Rick refused to acquiesce to demands that they evacuate the prison. It was a brutal slaying, with the Governor taking several chops at Hershel’s neck. (Although the Governor would be on the receiving end of that sword himself shortly after.) We spoke to the man who played Hershel, Scott Wilson, about how he learned of Hershel’s demise, details on his last day of filming, and what’s it like watching your own head get chopped off. (Also make sure to read our Q&A with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who explains why Hershel had to go as well as what’s to come next.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Chad Coleman talks about the 'jaw-dropping' midseason finale

Even before this season of The Walking Dead started, Andrew Lincoln was warning us about the midseason finale on Sunday, Dec. 1 — saying that it was the doozy to end all doozies. Well, that day is finally here, and Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese) called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to concur with his castmate, warning viewers to “fasten their seat belts” for an episode he promises is “gut-wrenching, epic, jaw-dropping, all of the above.” Now you can hear our entire conversation with the man who plays Tyreese by clicking on the video player below.

'The Walking Dead': David Morrissey says his AMC pilot does not mean the death of the Governor

When it was announced in August that David Morrissey would be starring as a transportation board investigator who survives a plane crash in a new pilot for AMC called Line of Sight, speculation began that this could mean the death of Morrissey’s other character (the Governor) on Morrissey’s other AMC drama (The Walking Dead).

The pilot has now been filmed, and while Morrissey is unsure of the show’s future, he says not to automatically assume that his participation in a potential new series means his one-eyed baddie is on borrowed time. Here’s what Morrissey told Entertainment Weekly about both projects: READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': How to comprehend its massive ratings

5-Mentalists-equal-1-Walking-Dead.jpg

The Walking Dead‘s ratings are big. Like really, really big.

It’s actually become a tad difficult to describe how big they are. AMC’s zombie drama is huge among total viewers — averaging nearly 19.9 million per episode when including seven days of DVR playback. But what’s truly stunning is the show’s adults 18-49 rating, the number that matters most to advertisers. That most recent average rating — a 10.3 with DVR — is second to nothing. Which makes comparisons tricky. So I put together this guide to give The Walking Dead‘s dominance some perspective. Note: Every show’s average below is only counting episodes with seven full days of DVR playback available, so this uses everybody’s largest currently available demo rating.

The Walking Dead is 23 percent bigger among adults 18-49 than NBC’s Sunday Night Football (8.4), which is broadcast’s top rated weekly telecast.

The biggest entertainment nowadays is CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (7.7), which has more viewers than The Walking Dead. But its demo rating is nowhere close.

You know ABC’s Scandal (4.8)? One of the biggest hits on TV, right? Well, The Walking Dead doubles its rating.

In fact, The Walking Dead is about equal to almost five episodes of CBS’ The Mentalist (2.3).

And seven episodes of NBC’s Sean Saves the World (1.5).

You can fit about nine episodes of The CW’s Arrow (1.1), Comedy Central’s The Daily Show (1.1), TNT’s Franklin & Bash (1.0) or HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (1.2) inside The Walking Dead.

Or roughly 51 episodes of Fox News’ Hannity (0.19).

Okay! I feel like you get the point. It beats everything. So what IS bigger than The Walking Dead? READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Showrunner Scott Gimple weighs in on Rick vs. Carol debate

Fans of The Walking Dead have been taking sides all week: Did Rick make the right move in not allowing Carol back to the prison after she killed two people in the hopes of stopping a deadly virus from spreading, or was she merely making the tough call that he was unable and unwilling to make because he was off farming? The woman who plays Carol, Melissa McBride, weighed in with her thoughts earlier this week, and now Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple offers his perspective on the debate. Will we ever see Carol again? And where did the inspiration for the big virus storyline come from? Scott Gimple reveals all! (Which is to say that he reveals as much as he feels like revealing, which is…some.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You gave Carol this great storyline of her evolving into this woman ready to embrace the extremes she sees necessary to survive in this world, and then you get rid of her. Why do that to poor Carol, Scott?
SCOTT M. GIMPLE: So I guess you don’t like Rick’s move? READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead': Melissa McBride says she was 'floored' by what happened to Carol

[SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information on Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, so read on only if you have already watched the episode]

It’s been a bolder Carol this season on The Walking Dead. But that boldness may have done her in after Rick — reacting to the news that Carol had killed Tyreese’s girlfriend Karen and another guy named David in the hopes of stopping the killer virus from spreading — told her she was no longer welcome at the prison and abandoned her on the side of the road, alone with a car full of supplies. We chatted with the woman who plays Carol, Melissa McBride, to get her take on the controversial decision. How did she react when she heard the news? What does she think about Carol not being able to say goodbye to Daryl? And will we ever see her character again? Read on for answers! READ FULL STORY
