Just in case you needed any further reason to stay glued to your TV set after “The Walking Dead” season 3 airs its midseason finale Sunday night, know this: they will have a special guest who knows a thing or two about making a classic TV show. That’s right: “Talking Dead” is welcoming “Lost” co-showrunner Damon Lindelof into the fold.
So beyond just being insightful and hilarious on Twitter, what will Lindelof bring to the show? Hopefully, an understanding of just how great of an achievement AMC and executive producer Glen Mazzara have on their hands. It is so rare to have a TV program that is so fantastic that it improves in its third season, just as both “Lost” and “The Walking Dead” have. Lindelof is also aware of the expectations that surround any sort of finale of this variety, as evidenced by just some of what he went through with the final episode of his hit ABC show. Some people still haven’t forgiven him for what was clearly one of the most-polarizing endings in the history of television, even though on a personal level we actually rather enjoyed it.
As for what you can expect to see during “The Walking Dead” Sunday, there will be (as reported here) all sorts of drama stemming from the showdown coming up between Rick and The Governor. In many ways, this is the moment that some fans have been waiting to see almost since the very beginning of the show, and it will constitute a good portion of the second half of the season.
Does the presence of Lindelof alone make you more interested in watching the “Talking Dead” aftershow? If you want to watch a new clip from the episode, all you have to do is head on over to the link here.
