Walking Dead has picking up its pace since returning from mid-season break, despite minor quibbles with certain character actions and plot devices. Nobody, however, can argue the show isn’t gripping and the last two episodes leading up to this week’s season finale are indicative of how good the show can be.
Now, we have a little news about the finale which may make waiting for it to air that much more unbearable.
We have known for some time that the show has been renewed for a third season, primarily due to extremely high viewing figures when the show came back for the second season. We also know that the third season will include another storyline from the comic book, as State of Play’s David Morrissey has been cast as The Governor. So the season 3 is already set to be spectacular, but not before season 2′s finale sends the show in fireworks.
And it all stems from Jenner’s whisper. Don’t remember Jenner? Season 1 finale something of a haze? Well Jenner was the scientist found at the Disease Control Centre and before he blew up the joint he whispered a little something into Rick’s ear. At first, everyone thought it was that Lori is in fact pregnant but apparently, that’s just not the case.
Unfamiliar with Jenner’s whisper? Take a look at the video below:
Well, in an Interview with TVLine Robert Kirkman confirmed the following:
TVLINE:Shane turning into a zombie in the end pretty much confirms that everyone’s already infected. Can you confirm that that’s what Jenner whispered in Rick’s ear?
Kirkman: [Hesitates] Well, I can’t confirm that. But what I can say is that Shane turning after being stabbed definitely does inform Rick revealing what Jenner whispered, in the next episode.
TVLINE: So we’ll finally find out what he whispered in next week’s finale?
Interesting, huh? Also, in the interview Kirkman was asked whether there would be another character death in the finale and he said:
I can say that the cast that enters the final episode this season does not leave the final episode intact. And there are a lot of surprises still yet to come.
Excellent. I cannot wait for the season finale! Will you be tuning in? Have you been impressed with the second season? Will you be tuning into season 3?
Missed out on season 1 of the show?
