Two men important to TWD fell this week in the stunning climax to the half-season. Join us in this extra-long podcast as we go into detail about our thoughts. Lots to talk about re: the comic this week too: In Comic Talk Jaden goes over the many similarities between this ep and the comic, and throws in a few informed predictions. And Gracie Lou and Mr. Blahg go Under the Comic Covers to give you their review of issue #117, released last week. All that and a ton of great email and calls from you guys, many of whom wrote in for the first time. Thanks all, we appreciate each and every one of you.
Catch us in a few weeks when our good friend Lissy joins us to review the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad (and rewatch ‘em along with us in the meantime). And we’ll do a couple more episodes in January and then be back for the second half of TWD S4 in early Feb.
Happy holidays everybody. Peace.
I’ve been enjoying Chad Coleman’s measured portrayal of Tyreese, this multi-faceted character who with his hammer and his wool cap seemed to have burst straight out of the pages of the comic this season, especially once he became activated by Karen’s death. It was a pleasure to speak with Chad as he thoughtfully answered everything we wanted to know. Join me and special guest Brittany as we find out things like:
• What Tyreese would’ve done if he had found out Carol killed Karen before she left the prison (his answer might surprise you—it did me).
• What it was like to film that crazy scene by the road where Tyreese hammers his way through a massive crowd of zeds.
• How Chad sees the relationship between Tyreese and Rick.
• What was going on in the S3 finale when Tyreese abruptly left the room seeming like he had a purpose.
• How working on TWD compares to his time on the acclaimed HBO show The Wire.
• And much more!
Hope you enjoy the interview as much as we did! For all our listeners in the U.S., happy Thanksgiving!

Scott Gimple on the return of the Governor:
“When the Governor comes back, it’s going to be in a very significant way but in a way that we significantly exploit the character and go even deeper into who he is. Because who the hell is he? He has his public face, he has his private face.”
