On March 24 Seriable shares an interview with "The Walking Dead" executive producer Greg Nicotero on some season finale hot points that people are dying to know.

This coming Sunday is the season finale of "The Walking Dead" and many want are dying to know what is going to happen, and whether story lines will be resolved. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as this will happen as the season finale is set up in a way that it will help to effortlessly move into season five. Robert Kirkman has described it as the biggest cliffhanger that fans have seen.

When it comes to Terminus and whether or not it's too good to be true or not, Nicotero says that these people are trying to rebuild the world one person at a time. They leave the gates open, they welcome anyone that makes it to their community with open arms, and they are trying to rebuild a life with the living. It's undeniable that they likely have come across those that were less than friendly, and those that wanted to rob them of what they've built, like the "claimers" likely will try.

Speaking of the "claimers" it's obvious that not all ways of post apocalyptic life work out well for everyone. Len surely didn't fair well with the claimers, supposedly because he was a liar. However, Joe is correct when he tells Daryl that you either kill or be killed and survive.

When it comes to Andrew J. West's Joe, Greg Nicotero says that it's an interesting story because those that have survived have done whatever it takes to get where they are. Whether or not West's Joe is one of the cannibals from the comic or not, he won't say, however, this whole season has been about survival and if eating people before they turn is the risk that needs to be taken to ensure your own survival is just what you have to do.

When it comes to the good guys vs. bad guys, he says that all the groups feel as if they are the good guys. They have found a set of rules that work for them, that ensures their survival, and gets them by. Joe won't think he's a bad guy, but it will be interesting to see how fans react to how the season finale is set up and what they think of the character.
