‘The Walking Dead’ Showrunner Scott Gimple Addresses Last Night’s Shocking Ending
SPOILER ALERT! IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT UP ON THE LATEST EPISODE OF THE WALKING DEAD CLICK AWAY!
We’re here still trying to recover from last night’s stressful and unexpected episode, which left Michonne (Danai Gurira) and her group trapped in a pet store and surrounded by a herd, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) trapped in an RV and surrounded by a herd, and the shocking possible death of fan-favorite and long-time survivor Glenn (Steven Yeun).
Glenn and Nicholas (Michael Traynor) were surrounded by walkers and trapped on top of a dumpster, when Nick decided to take his own life, shooting himself in the head and taking Glenn down into the pile of walkers with him. We see Glenn (maybe) being torn apart, but the angle makes it unclear as to who was actually being eaten, leaving Glenn’s fate a mystery.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple gave a statement about Glenn’s supposed death on Sunday’s Talking Dead saying, “Dear fans of The Walking Dead, this is a hard story to tell and when we were planning to tell we knew our friends at the Talking Dead would be talking to you about it and knowing you’d all be talking, and feeling and commiserating, I knew we should say something about it lest our silence say something we didn’t mean to say or not say.
“So I’ll say this: In some way, we will see Glenn, some version of Glenn or parts of Glenn again, either in flashback or in the current story to help complete the story.”
We’re pretty sure this means Glenn will survive, but what we don’t know is how he manages to get himself out of this one.
There’s also this interesting little piece of info that our friend and fellow TWD fan tweeted out:
