There are a lot of conflicting stories going around about the now-infamous season six finale of The Walking Dead, and you can add this one to the mix.
Despite many of the cast members saying beforehand that the big arrival of Negan was so shocking and brutal that they literally needed days to recover, the actual airing of the episode ended with a much-hated cliffhanger where literally no one at all dies. Suddenly, all the tunes changed. Apparently no one knows who will meet their end at the hands of Lucille, and showrunner Scott Gimple and director Greg Nicotero claim that the actual death scene hasn’t even been filmed yet.
Tyler James Williams says it’s all one big lie.
Williams, who played the now-departed Noah on the show, recently told Entertainment Weekly Radio that even he knows who is getting a barbed-wire baseball bat to the skull.
“Yes,” says Williams. “Yeah, I know.” Not only does Williams say he knows, but he has known since well before they filmed that harrowing scene. “They were still shooting [season] 6,” says Williams of when he found out. “So like, middle of 6.”
While Williams will not fess up as to who spilled the beans to him, he does confirm it was a cast member. “Oh, yeah, of course,” he says. “We all still speak and they kind of keep me up to date and stuff on what’s going on and all of that… You have to understand, [Gimple] knows everything seasons and seasons out, so people knew, but we can’t say anything. No one can say anything. So it’s actually better to say that we don’t know.” (Via)
Someone is definitely lying here, but the rest of won’t find out who until season seven debuts in October.
