At the top of last Sunday’s episode of Talking Dead, host Chris Hardwick had us in a complete tizzy when he teased a “big announcement” ahead. In a matter of minutes, we learned that said news was that Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) would be making his TD debut in the aftershow’s March 30 episode — directly after the Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re psyched that Andrew and showrunner Scott Gimple will be chatting with Chris this Sunday after “A” airs, but we were kind of holding out hope that the big announcement was a Season 5 premiere date. We know, we know; we’re getting a bit ahead of ourselves, but we just can’t help it!
Still, this Sunday’s post-TWD episode of Talking Dead is poised to be great. For starters, we've been promised a “savage” hour in “A,” and we couldn’t think of a more fitting time for Andrew to appear on his first episode of Talking Dead ever. Given the showdown that we’re all but certain is coming between Rick and Joe (Jeff Kober) in Episode 16, we know there will be plenty to discuss.
The folks at AMC know this Sunday’s TWD finale and Andrew’s inaugural appearance on Talking Dead are each a big deal for fans, so they’re allowing people to submit video questions for Andrew to answer live on Sunday night. According to AMCTV.com, the rules for submitting a video are as follows: “In order to be considered, you must submit a video of yourself asking a The Walking Dead-related question, no longer than 20 seconds, along with your name, age, and location. You must be at least 18 years old to submit a video and to be considered to appear in the Finale via live video chat. Videos must be shot against a neutral background with no third-party logos or artwork, and no third-party music.”
Sounds simple enough to us!

The Walking Dead Season 4 finale airs Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m. ET, and Talking Dead follows at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
