Season 7 wont repeat the mistake of Season 6 with its finale.
The current 7th season of The Walking Dead has been a bit of a disappointment for most fans. Beginning with the brutal deaths of 2 characters that have been integral to the story. This understandably did not sit well with the fans. The show even scored its lowest ratings in 4 years. Even though, it did manage to pick things up again when it returned from its midseason break.
One of the main reason fans considered to turn their backs on the show was the way in which Season 6 ended. Series bosses decided to leave things on a cliffhanger, to ensure fans would return to the show for its Season 7 premiere. And even teased a resolution, only aggravating viewers more.
However, showrunner Scott Gimple told in a statement, in order to assure fans that they won’t repeat the same mistake with the finale of Season 6. In an interview with EW, Scott Gimple explained:
“I just think it’s everything. It is everything and the kitchen sink. It is exciting and it’s very emotional and I believe it’s funny in a couple parts, and it builds and builds and builds and it explodes. And though it promises more – because there is a whole lot to get to – there is an ending. It really is just a huge episode inasmuch as it has all of the flavors of this season. It is taking your cup and going down each soda jet and taking a little from each one and then throwing in some hot sauce, a little bit of lime, and then maybe a tiny bit of tequila, as well.”
The Walking Dead continues on Sunday, March 19 with ‘The Other Side’ at 9 pm on AMC. The Season 7 finale, ‘The First Day of the Rest of Your Life’ is scheduled to air two weeks later on Sunday, April 2.
