Also, Andrew Lincoln has been chatting about the second half of the season. He revealed to Entertainment Weekly that some big tonal changes are on the horizon.
“It’s probably the opposite of what you just witnessed,” the Rick Grimes actor said of season 7 part B. “Certainly from Rick’s point of view. You see a man in action again with some of the members of his closest family.”
“There’s a lot more levity, if you can believe that, than you’ve ever seen before in Mr. Grimes,” Lincoln added. “There’s sort of a freedom in him, a feeling that comes from losing everything, and also the thrill of the fight. It’s the thrill of the fight again. He’s back in. All I’m saying is that the band is back together.”
He also mentioned that “it certainly feels very much more like a show that I knew and recognized in the back eight”, which should be music to the ears of anyone who found season 7’s first half a little too different from the norm.
