WARNING! DO NOT READ IF YOU DID NOT WATCH LAST NIGHTS WALKING DEAD. Now that that’s outta the way, read on to see what showrunner Glen Mazzara has to say about last nights shocking episode.
Axel wasn’t a integral part to The Walking Dead but after last nights episode, you wanted him to be. He was only around for a bit but that short period of time let him grow on us.
Was it a hard choice to get rid of him? Showrunner, Glen Mazzara talks about that and much more.
“That was a really tough choice because we had to have the Governor exact some revenge. If he just shot up the prison without resulting in someone’s death it would have looked completely impotent. So now you start looking at characters and which character is going to go. And we evaluated almost every character — is it time to kill this character or that character? Unfortunately, the axe fell Axel’s way. It was tough because there may have been more story with him. I think we were just finding that character. I loved what he added. It was just that someone had to go and that was a really, really tough choice. That was something that I wrestled with almost more than say, Lori, because I knew we were getting story out of Lori’s death. So this was a different kind of death that was tied into the existing story but it didn’t prompt further story. I did really feel that loss. That was a tough one. I wish…. I didn’t see another way out of it.”
Axel…we hardly knew ye.
