Though the producers and stars of the series are being very quiet about the details of the episode they do promise that it will be very eventful. Series creator Robert Kirkman recently told Reddit AMA that the episode would be "savage" while executive producer Greg Nicotero told the New York Post's Larry Getlen that the final line spoken in the episode would provide the series with it's first-ever season-ending cliff-hanger.
The finale will be immediately followed by the live after show Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick. The episode will feature series star Andrew Lincoln marking the first time he has appeared live on the show in its 45 episode run.
An air date for the premiere of season 5 of The Walking Dead has not yet been confirmed by AMC.
