Entertainment Weekly interviews Jordan Woods-Robinson (Eric), who talks about why Eric decided to fight Negan: “Sasha’s death for Eric was a big turning point, and then also just saying yes, I’m going to fight alongside Aaron and I am going to be there and it’s going to be hard and it’s going to be tough.”

• Greg Nicotero tells Newsweek that The Walking Dead transcends political divides because it “asks you to contend with your own mortality, which is the one thing none of us are ever going to outsmart.
