‘The Walking Dead’: Season 5 midseason finale made Norman Reedus cry

The latest -Just in case you wanted to start mentally preparing yourself now for the midseason finale of “The Walking Dead,” there is one thing that you really should know: It is probably going to make you feel pretty sad.

Speaking in a new interview with TV Guide, Norman Reedus (who posted a snippet from the magazine piece on his Facebook page) made it clear that this is going to be a difficult one to watch. Why? It was extremely difficult for him to just prepare for:

“I sat on an apple box with my head between my legs and just balled for an hour … I really wanted not to tear up during [the big scene] — I wanted to be like I wasted every tear in my body before we started shooting — so I just sat there and cried and cried and cried.”

This does not sound like the sort of thing that ends with all of the characters holding hands and singing happy songs with one another. Someone is probably going to meet a grisly end, and we’re going to be rather sad.

Who are the biggest candidates to go? Virtually, anyone other than Rick and Daryl is in our mind vulnerable, and we’ll just have to see what direction the show opts to go with it. We do think that even these two could be in danger down the road, but the timing just doesn’t seem that right to do away with them right now.
