• Chad L. Coleman, talking to Yahoo TV about his Law & Order: SVU appearance, teases that The Walking Dead viewers can expect “some dynamic acting, some amazing action, and some gory, out-of-this-world goriness.”

MTV offers proof that Daryl has “ridiculous sexual chemistry with literally everyone and everything” on The Walking Dead.

• According to Unreality TV, Christian Serratos tells Latina about Rosita, that a lot of people “who don’t know the comic book or the character think that she relies on Abraham, but she’s a full-fledged, capable, strong woman.”
