    Well this is a delightful extra, I am sure.



    A new featurette from the upcoming DVD set of The Walking Dead season 6 takes you inside the heads of everyone behind the making of Jessie, Ron, and Sam's death scene from the midseason premiere which aired back in February. "Executing those moments are challenging," says Greg Nicotero. "That one in particular because we killed three people in the space of less than a minute and each death is different than the one before it."

    "It's kind of an impossible scene," Rick actor Andrew Lincoln says.

    "With Sam, we built soft zombie teeth so it looked like the teeth were sinking in and then they sprayed blood," Nicotero explains.

    "I chop her arm off to release my son," Lincoln laughs. "It's just beyond insane." The arm on Jessie Anderson was a prop created by Nicotero's team so Lincoln could swing away at it and sever it and way he saw fit for the moment. "That's what I love about the show," Lincoln concludes. "There are no right or wrong answers."​

    I am still not exactly pleased with the way the whole "chop" sequence played out, but I like that this is probably the only promotion the Anderson family is going to get in that DVD boxset. Basically all they boiled down to: a gory death scene.

    Thanks @Doctor Grimes for posting this. I couldn't watch the video with AB as I am not a fan of AB or her character and had more than enough of her in Season 5 and 6A.

    I also had a teensy nightmare the other that BluRay had a deleted cut of a love scene between Rick and Jessie which confirms he did sleep with her but they chose to cut the scene. This nightmare stayed with me for days! LOL

    Hopefully we'll get something on the Richonne kiss scene.

    We suffered for almost an entire season with the andersons so we could get to this scene. The fact they created a special feature for the box set just proves Jessie was never an actual character just a plot device for an epic death scene that Gimple & Co screwed up in post production.

    I love Andy laughing about this because he can't take the whole scene and his story arc with Jessie seriously....it is quite laughable and I love his honesty :lol:

    He's trying so hard to be polite, but I think he was just like, "Yesssss chop." :chop::rickgrin:

    Something tells me he didn't push for AB to stay on the show. :flirt:

    I actually watched the feature and it's quite telling on multiple levels because they only focuses on the logistics of the scene, why Rick had to chop off Jessie's arm and the only feelings that were discussed were Ron's hatred for Rick due to the death of his father. They never touched on whatever was going on between jessick. Whatever Ricks feelings for Jessie were, it was never addressed in the video because in the end even TPTB knew that was a hot mess and they wanted it forgotten :lol:

    @Caribbeanqueen11 you can totally watch this. Jessie has one line, ONE LINE IN THE ENTIRE FEATURE. And it's about Sam, not her leading lady role and demise :lol:

    Best part of the video is Danai coming in like a closer saying no one shoots at rick and Carl on her watch.

    This video filled me with such happiness because I am a bitter bitch that carries grudges :mal:

    It's very funny Andy laughs describing this scene because I do the same if I happen to watch this particular episode. I will say that this scene was anticlimactic for me- waiting for it to happen for so long and then it was just kind of meh.

    Gimple the Richonne n°1 fanboy would never allow that sh*t, and Andy would probably run away.

    Andy is such shipper trash. He refers to Jessie as 'the mother' and THIS is how he relays Carl's shooting:

    "The other son tries to kill me and shoots my son in the eye. Then he gets stabbed by a Samurai sword."

    Oh Andy, your head canon is perfection. He refuses to cast any negative light on his girl Michonne. Love him!

    I was tickled that he referred to Jessie so distantly as "the mother." I couldn't even believe it.

    Andy has no chill and I love it. For some reason, it killed me when they said that they had the fake arm extending from shoulder to shoulder so that Andy could go to town. For some reason, I'm imagining Andy wacking away like "yasss, bitch she's gone!" But then quickly composing himself, because he's trying to remain professional.

    I still can't believe they even wasted time doing this for her character. The only good thing was Andy seem to be distancing himself from that story as much as he could. He said the son and the mother like he didn't even know them. I enjoyed his laugh when he was talking about cutting her arm off.
