NEW: ‘Talking Dead’ Highlights 15 Unknown Facts Of TWD Season 8 Finale


Talking Dead always takes a deep dive into the world of the undead but the episode after the season 8 finale of The Walking Dead was especially enlightening. During the episode, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lennie James, Robert Kirkman, and Scott Gimple spoke about their favorite moments from the finale. 

Then, Danai Garcia and Garret Dillahunt joined the show to speak about the big Fear the Walking Dead crossover and what might happen in Season 4 of the sister series.

In Season 6 and Season 7, the seasons ended with Negan giving a big monologue. But Andrew Lincoln noticed a difference with the Season 8 finale. “When I read the script, I was a bit concerned,” said Andrew Lincoln on Talking Dead.

“When I slit his throat… Up until now, Jeffrey Dean Morgan had been amazing, but one of the great things he brought to the show is that at the end of each season, he does a three-page monologue,” he joked. “So when I slit his throat, I thought ‘Ahhh.’ It’s going to have to be me. I’ve never seen him look so happy.”

“Anytime that Andy and I shared a scene or shared the screen, it gets intense,” said Jeffrey Dean Morgan. “I think we bring that out in each other. That’s just where it goes. That’s the kind of intensity that that sort of scene needs.”

Once, when JDM forgot to say “miny” amidst his “Eeny, meeny, miny, moe” monologue, the continuity expert made them re-do the shot. This meant filming another kick to Andrew Lincoln. “I was kicking [him] all morning,” he joked.

“It was payback because I did accidentally graze his nose,” said Andrew Lincoln.

“He did break my nose earlier in the season,” said Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Talking Dead audience sighed at the rough news.
