The Walking Dead showrunner explains original plans for major death


    WARNING – This article includes spoilers from The Walking Dead season 11

    AMC’s hit horror series The Walking Dead returned to screens for an explosive episode and this time saw the death of Sebastian Milton (Teo Rapp-Olsson). Showrunner Angela Kang spoke exclusively to and opened up about the character’s death.

    As The Walking Dead approaches its last-ever finale, the most recent episode titled A New Deal came to a jaw-dropping end. 

    The Commonwealth had descended into chaos after its residents began to protest outside the office of Governor Pamela Milton (Laila Robins). 

    They were demanding justice for April Martens (Wynn Everett) who died during a cash heist organised by Pamela’s insufferable son Sebastian. 

    The crowd had also refused to listen to seek refuge after warnings a swarm of Walkers was approaching.

    Pamela blamed Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton) for the deaths in front of everybody and believed this would clear Sebastian of any guilt as she stated he would take over the Milton legacy. 

    However, he couldn’t help but detail how much he hated the people of the Commonwealth in front of Max Mercer (Margot Bingham) who began to secretly record. 

    The recording was used against him and rang across the union square where the crowd were protesting. 

    Sebastian’s rant was played on the speakers and as the protesters listened in shock, emotions quickly turned to fear as the Walkers made their appearance.

    Speaking on Sebastian’s death, showrunner Angela revealed: “We always knew that Sebastian was going to meet some kind of bloody end and the question was just where did that happen. 

    “At first, we had plans for his death to happen much later, but as we were working on the story, it felt like in the particular situation that occurs in that episode. 

    “That some sense of stakes were important and also it just felt like it was an opportunity to turn the story in a different direction for our heroes.”

    Angela teased: “Things are going to get even harder for them now, sometimes it just makes sense.”
