AMC released 2 new videos a few hours ago taking you into a inside look at the season four finale. In the first “Inside the Episode” video, the cast and crew take you behind the scenes of Terminus set. In the second “Making Of” video, Rick accepts a dark side of himself as he is pushed to make tougher decisions in the apocalypse, as said by AMC. You can check out both videos below. If you haven’t seen screen captures for the finale, you can check those out here. Enjoy!
Hey everybody! I just updated the photo gallery with 1,194 HD screen captures of Andrew from the season four finale of “The Walking Dead.” The finale was very much Rick-centric, hence the amount of screen captures, which isn’t a bad thing at all, right? What did you guys think of the finale? Leave a comment to share your thoughts. I hope you enjoy the screen captures!

If you’re setting your TiVo or DVR to record the Season 4 finale of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” be sure to give yourself a several-minute cushion at the end, because you do not want to miss the very last line of the episode.
The Post spoke to Andrew Lincoln, who plays the survivors’ unofficial leader, Rick Grimes, as well as executive producer Greg Nicotero, and learned that the very last line of this game-changing season will change the game yet again, launching the first season-ending cliff-hanger in the show’s history.
“Traditionally, when we [end a season], it has a wrap-up,” says Nicotero. “At the end of Season 2, we saw the prison. At the end of Season 3, we saw them bringing people from Woodbury to the prison. It all had this resolve to it. In this episode, there’s a line that a character says, the last line of the episode, that’s probably the first time we ended [a season] on a ‘what’s gonna happen next?’ moment.”
But based on what Lincoln and Nicotero shared with us, that’s not the biggest shock in store tonight.
According to Lincoln, something happens to Rick that, even accounting for the deaths of his wife and (he believes) his infant daughter, will be the most brutal thing he has endured in the show’s history.
“My car explodes if I say anything [more],” jokes the British actor, before finding a way to open up without revealing more than he should.
“I will say that something happens in the finale that when I read it, I called Scott Gimple, the showrunner, because we’ve always been incredibly responsible with the violence in this show. And I just wanted to ask, ‘Is this a step too far?’”
For some fans of the show, though, the prospect of any action at all will be welcome.
This year, AMC divided Season 4 into eight-episode halves, and each episode featured only a few survivors; ultimately, none of the cast appeared in more than half the episodes.
For Lincoln, this format afforded him time to spend with his family. Once shooting began without him, though, he quickly changed his tune.
“I got incredibly bored and wanted to be back on set, so I don’t think I was much comfort to my family,” says Lincoln, 40, who lives on a farm just outside of London with his wife, Gael Anderson (daughter of Jethro Tull singer Ian Anderson) and their two kids, Matilda, 6, and Arthur, 4. “I missed the shoot. I missed being on set.”
As for the story format itself, while some disagree — New York magazine headlined one of its recent weekly recaps of the show, “Man, The Walking Dead is Boring This Season” — Lincoln believes that the slower pace helped flesh out the show’s characters.
Episode 14, in which Carol (Melissa McBride) was forced to kill a young girl, is a case in point. “You think it’s one thing, then it turns that inside out and rips your heart out. It’s astonishingly bold,” says Lincoln.
“There is a necessity to make this an action-packed thrill ride, but you need to do the footwork in character development and story to earn those rewards. There has to be light and shade, otherwise it would be the other way around — is it too bloodthirsty, is it too gory, is it too action-packed? Where’s the character development?”
While Lincoln has enjoyed reading the scripts to see where the show was headed, he let The Post in on a surprising fact about him and “The Walking Dead.” Despite being its star, Lincoln has never seen even one episode of the show that has made him a very recognizable man.
“I hear it’s very good,” jokes Lincoln, who prefers not to watch himself act, and therefore hasn’t in 15 years.
“It’s not an enjoyable experience for me,” he says. “After working for about eight years, I realized that watching myself made me self-conscious. So I stopped.”
(Lincoln has been asked to provide DVD commentary for Episode 14, so he will soon watch his show for the first time. Of the other pop culture touchstone Lincoln was in — the polarizing 2003 Christmas film, “Love Actually,” in which he played a man in love with his best friend’s wife — Lincoln attended the premiere, but says he “watched the other stories but kept my head down during mine, like a weirdo.”)
But while Lincoln may have a short embarrassment fuse, he’s not above toying with others — namely, his castmate Norman Reedus, who plays the show’s hardened country boy, Daryl Dixon.
When Lincoln and Reedus recently flew to Tokyo for show promotion, Lincoln engineered a prank where a fan with one arm and no legs — Nick Santonastasso, 17, a Vine star thanks to pranks where he scares people while made up like a zombie — hid in a room-service cart in full zombie makeup, then jumped out to scare Reedus.
“My big concern is that I’ve started a war. It’s on,” says Lincoln. “I’m living in fear — not that I’m gonna get killed [on the show], but I fear Norman’s wrath more than anything else. Every moment that is not a prank, he’s planning one.”
As Lincoln keeps looking over his shoulder, though, Rick’s harsher realities illustrate why Lincoln loves this show overall and tonight’s finale in particular, in their demonstrations of how resilient people can be in even the toughest of circumstances.
“The extraordinary thing about human beings is their capacity to heal in real life, and that’s the greatest story we’re telling,” Lincoln says.
“The thing that happens [tonight addresses] that question of, can we ever come back, and can we ever be the same people we once were. Certainly, [the question of] how Rick lives from this point onwards is resolved.”
Who lives? Who dies? Who makes it to Terminus? And what is this shocking Rick Grimes storyline we’re hearing so much about? “The Walking Dead” Season 4 finale is just a couple of days away, and Yahoo TV talked to series star Andrew Lincoln, Rick Grimes himself, to get the scoop on just how frightened we should be for Rick and our favorite zombie apocalypse survivors (hint: very).
We talked to Greg Nicotero earlier this week, and we’re worried about Rick in this Season 4 finale.
[Laughing] Yes, and you should be, be afraid. I’ve just spoken to someone who’s seen it… they were freaking out a bit.
We know the Claimers — Joe and his friends, who are travelling with Daryl — are on Rick’s trail, and it seems pretty likely they’ll meet up in the finale. What can you say about that?
Just wait, just wait. We haven’t got long to go [laughing]. They meet, yeah… they would be pretty bad trackers if they didn’t meet, is all I’m saying. But you never know. I’ve got a feeling that… well, something’s going to go down, definitely. I’ll say that.
This is what Robert Kirkman said about the finale: “This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit. And if you think you’ve seen that before, you haven’t. And the Rick Grimes that comes out of this is really going to shock people.”
Yeah, that’s very good. I think the story this season begins with a man suppressing his brutality for the sake of his son. I don’t want to give too much away, but basically, you will see a side of Rick that you haven’t seen before or in a place that he goes to that he’s never been before. Like most things he’s driven by, it’s for the sake of his son.
All I will say is that when I read [the script], I called up Scott Gimple, and I said, “Scott, we’ve always been incredibly responsible with where we go and the darkness and the brutality of the world that we inhabit. Do you think we may be going a little bit far on this?” He said, “No, no, not at all,” and when I did it, when I did the scene, like most things Scott Gimple says, he was right, and it made complete sense. It is a definite evolution.
What was your favorite Rick moment in the second half of the season?
I loved ["After"]. I just thought it was very well drawn… and obviously for the fact that I got to lie in a bed unconscious for quite a lot of the scenes [laughing]. But I would say that I think my favorite episode, just for what happens, is the one that you haven’t seen yet. Just because, it’s always really exciting to play… it’s such a privilege to play this character, and certainly to play it for so long. You get to explore and then live with him in so many different ways. And when something happens that changes him irrevocably, it’s an exciting moment. You start going, “Oh, I’m no longer this guy anymore, I’m this guy.” That’s what happens this Sunday.
Are you excited for fans to see it, and then to start filming Season 5 in a few weeks?
Oh, yeah. Everybody’s going crazy. All the people that are still alive are texting each other [laughing]. It’s an amazing time. Just because it so beautifully synchronizes… the finale and then suddenly the emails start coming in and everybody starts getting ready [for Season 5]. It’s particularly exciting to start up Season 5, because of where we leave Season 4. It’s a really thrilling place.
Did you feel Season 4 was a different show? And in a good way if so?
Oh, hugely. And I think it was good. I think different is always good. No, that’s not true… that’s a flat out lie. You can have different bad. But I think that changing the show up is essential. Just because we want to keep ahead of the audience, and we want to keep people on the balls of their feet and not know where we’re going to go.
For that reason alone, I think the writers did a magnificent job this season. I loved the storytelling. I thought it was slow in parts, but for a reason. I think it was different and needed to be different. Maybe that’s the ace we’ve got up our sleeve, the fact that we can just smash it all up and start it all over again.
Were you excited to learn some of the character backstories?
It’s so good. It’s so exciting to go, “Oh my God, the Michonne story.” All the little things that they’ve added in, that you are being drip fed about pasts and relationships and who these people are and their secrets. There’s nothing more satisfying as an actor, I think, than playing a secret, holding onto a secret for so long.
You mentioned Michonne… she, Rick, and Carl have formed a family unit, and not just because they’re together in the second half of the season. They’ve been building to that. Is Michonne the person that Rick most trusts with Carl? And not just because she’s the only other person with them right now, but in general?
The funny thing is that I think he sees a relationship that Carl doesn’t have with anybody else. Carl is a teenager now. There are certain things that a boy can’t say to his father… there’s a lightness that [Carl and Michonne] bring out in each other that is so of the old world, that is so important to life. Otherwise, what’s the point? I think that Rick identifies that as a hugely important part of their relationship. But also, she signifies a maternal presence, maybe a sisterly presence. She’s a sort of go between. Also, you’re right. She’s great insurance. If I die, I trust that she’s a warrior. She’s a survivor. It is a kind of insurance policy, as well.
One of the best moments of the entire series so far was the end of “After,” when Michonne finds Rick and Carl in the house, and Rick sees her at the door and tells Carl, “It’s for you.”
I know. I’m with you. I love it. It’s rare that you get the chance to have that levity on our show. It’s a lifeline for this guy. It’s funny, I was signing something at a convention, and the person said, “Sign your favorite line from this season,” and I just said, “It’s for you.” They asked what episode that was from, and I said, “You haven’t seen it yet. Wait.” That was Robert Kirkman. Robert Kirkman wrote that episode, and I thought he did a beautiful job.
“The Walking Dead” Season 4 finale airs Sunday, March 30 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
Andrew Lincoln – Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead – phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about the upcoming finale of the hit AMC show and the British actor revealed how he conquered that Southern accent.
As for the notion that someone is going to die during the finale, Andrew confirms with a laugh, “Yeah, it’s a pretty safe bet” … although he wouldn’t say exactly what does go down in the episode.
But he was game to give us the scoop on how he perfected Rick Grimes’ Southern drawl.
“I’m a bit of a weirdo … I headed out three weeks before we started the first-ever episode and I went out and sort of went under cover and tried to orders coffees … in a dialect and then it became about fried chicken … and got more confident and after about two-and-a-half weeks, I had a passable accent and it’s kind of stuck really,” he shares.
Andrew goes on to say he also has a dialect coach who helps spell out the words, which he’s turned into a game.
“As a party trick back in England, I give my old scripts to people who are half-drunk and they do the worst southern accent,” he jokes.
Catch The Walking Dead Season 4 finale on AMC on Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m.
Sunday night fans will be tuning in to “The Walking Dead” finale airing on AMC. There haven’t been many specific “The Walking Dead” spoilers shared as of yet, but on March 27 The Walker Stalkers talked with Andrew Lincoln and he did reveal a few juicy tidbits. What can fans expect from Sunday’s season 4 finale? It will be filled with a lot of brutality and shocking moments from the sounds of it.
Some time back, Andrew Lincoln had teased that at some point this season he would be using a weapon he had never used before. He confirmed that Sunday is the day that this all goes down, and it sounds like it is going to be a truly shocking sequence. Lincoln even said that when he read the script and saw what they had in store, he called Scott Gimple and asked if they were really going there. Once he was told they were, he apparently embraced it and went all out.
Fans should be braced to see Andrew Lincoln go through something more difficult and shocking than he’s ever had to go through before. There have been some hints via the comic book storylines about what this might entail, and fans are anxious to see how it will all play out on screen.
The TV show and the comic books don’t always follow the same paths regarding story, but it is sounding more and more like it just may go that direction in this case. If that is the situation, fans should brace themselves to see something pretty wretched happened to Carl in Sunday’s episode.
It has been said that much of the theme this season is that the characters are looking to see if they can ever once again become who they used to be. Lincoln said for Rick that question is answered in Sunday’s episode, and it doesn’t necessarily sound like the answer is a positive one.
Andrew added that this is an exciting episode for him and one of his favorites that he has worked on. He notes that Rick will be irrevocably changed in this episode in a brutal way, but he noted there is grace in some of the moments ahead as well.
What do you think happens to Rick in the season 4 finale? Will everybody survive to face season 5? It is expected that viewers will get a hint of where things are headed for season 5, and it is also expected there will be a big cliffhanger, naturally. Tune into the season 4 finale of “The Walking Dead” airing on AMC on Sunday, March 30.
They finally reached Terminus! Or at least some of them did. Glenn, Maggie, Tara, Bob, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita all arrived to a place with flowers blooming, crops growing, and a woman named Mary offering them a plate a food. So what now? Are the other groups (Rick, Carl, and Michonne…Tyreese and Carol…Daryl and the marauders…Beth) far behind? Whatever happens on Sunday’s season 4 Walking Dead finale, creator Robert Kirkman promises it will be intense. And he also says it will all come down to former group leader Rick Grimes.
“This last half of season 4 has been a character defining group of stories for everyone,” Kirkman tells EW, “but really, Rick Grimes — really finding what this guy is going to be able to do and how he is going to carry on, and is he going to get these people back together, and where is he going to go from here? And I think there are some big questions that are asked that are going to be answered in this final episode.”
Well, we’d expect nothing less. But before you assume that it’s going to be all sunshine and unicorns if-and-when the gang reunites, Kirkman issues the following warning: “This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit. And if you think you’ve seen that before, you haven’t. And the Rick Grimes that comes out of this is really going to shock people.”
Whatever does go down, it appears it is going to leave a lasting impression, and is something that will have Walking Dead fans talking/sobbing for months after. “We’re definitely going to being bringing things to another level,” promises Kirkman. “And the anticipation for the next season after this finale is unfortunately going to be a lot more heightened than it has been between any other season. So it’s going to be a rough summer for Walking Dead fans waiting for us to come back in the fall.”
Uh-oh. Does that sound like a cliffhanger to you? What do you think is going to happen on Sunday’s season finale? Is someone going to die? And if so, who? Hit the message boards with your theories.
