The Walking Dead Sneak Peek: Look Who’s Back in Action and Telling It Like It Is

How ‘The Walking Dead’ totally botched its Glenn situation.

It’s fast becoming the year of characters returning from almost certain death in TV, as The Walking Dead’s Glenn returned unscathed from an enormous zombie attack in last night’s episode. While it was not made clear if Glenn, played by Steven Yeun, was dead, fans feared the worst after he was taken out of the opening credits for the show.

There was a crackpot theory that he used Nicholas’ body to shield him from the feasting zombies, which was mostly discounted as preposterous – except it turned out to be pretty much true. But in the latest episode screened in the US, it was revealed that he had made a miraculous escape, and that the show bosses were simply toying with viewers.

Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), who was last seen at the bottom of a pile of walkers noshing on some unidentified organs, is, in fact, alive. “It proves this world can take the story of the good guy winning sometimes,” Yeun, 31, who has basically been in hiding for weeks, said on The Talking Dead aftershow. “I feel relieved, I feel very grateful, I feel so amazed at the response.” “I feel bad that I couldn’t say anything to everyone, family, friends. It’s kind of been overwhelming,” “People on the show all have to sign NDAs, Non Disclosure Agreements,” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd added, joking “but in this case we literally said, do you talk in your sleep and if someone said yes we offered them some duct tape so they could duct tape their months and not spoil it.”

You can kind of see what producer Scott Gimple and company were thinking: “Let’s pretend to kill Glenn and have fan speculation take over the internet.” In that sense, the plan was a success. Either in flashback or the current story to help complete the story.” Then there were the abundance of leaked photos from the set, showing actor Steven Yeun fully participating in scenes for the season’s second half. We live in a “What-have-you-done-for-me-lately?” TV culture and “The Walking Dead’s” Season 6 finale could draw attention away from what may be the worst decision it’s ever made. In a similar sense, Showtime’s “Homeland” has recovered from poor decisions in its second and third season to once again become one of the best shows on TV.
