Help others do the same." -Ezekiel
Go behind-the-scenes to see how the crew created the wild fight scene between Rick and Negan:
UPDATE: Thanks to some tech issues on our live-blog host's end, we're going "old school" and updating the site raw tonight so please make sure to refresh, and I'll keep the newest stuff at the top!
While I know there were some way-too-real things going on earlier in the evening on CBS (*cough! Stormy Daniels cough!*), let's shake off some real-world creepiness with this week's edition of Bring Out Your Dead!: Bleeding Cool's The Walking Dead Live-blog!
Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) got into a little fender-bender that resulted in some long-distance road rage and a flaming Lucille fight. Simon (Steven Ogg) got into Dwight's (Austin Amelio) scarred ear about abandoning Negan's plan and taking the Saviors in a different direction – a deadlier form of "scorched earth" than Negan ever imagined. Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Enid (Katelyn Nacon) met the enigmatic Georgie (Jayne Atkinson), who exchanged "the key to your future" for some food and albums.
Oh, and the Rick/Daryl (Norman Reedus) bromance? All good. Negan and Jadis' (Pollyanna McIntosh) relationship? Not so much…as we take a look at this week's "lucky thirteenth" episode of AMC's The Walking Dead, 'Do Not Send Us Astray':
The Walking Dead Episode 8×13 'Do Not Send Us Astray': Trouble arises when unexpected visitors arrive at the Hilltop and the community is thrust into action; heartbreaking discoveries are made.
