So yeah, Rick has finally found his backbone and is looking to stop Negan once and for all. That’s what we learned when “The Walking Dead” mid-season finale aired a couple of weeks back, but would he retain it? Sure sounds like it.
“I will say 7B’s vibe is very different from 7A’s vibe,” says showrunner Scott Gimple to ComicBook.com. “The ending of 7B is very different than the beginning of 7A. Just the vibe in 7B, I was just talking about it with Andy [Lincoln] last night. It’s just a very, very different half season than the half season that preceded it.”
“Even with structure, what we’re doing right now with the episodes and seeing where everyone is at, the structure is very, very different than the back half. There’s a lot more variety to the structure. It’s just a very, very different situation, but 6, 7, 8 … Wow, we’re really close, aren’t we? I would say the end of 7A is very different than the beginning of 7A. That’s the thing that kind of launches that different tone of 7B.”
