There’s no way the second half of The Walking Dead Season 4 could be anything like the first half. The location is gone. The people are scattered. It’s a whole new world.

Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) told Yahoo Season 4 is “one of the most exciting and diverse and bold and brave seasons we've done since the first.”

He loves the unique way the stories have been told this season, with heavy focus on a few characters at a time. “I think we owe it to the fans to change it up a bit,” Andy said. “One of the things that attracted me to the project was always the fact that it was a story that kept changing. Not only the cast keeps changing and recycling and moving forward, but the story. It's a very, very smart move by Scott [Gimple] and the writers and AMC to do this. As for me, reading the script, and I hope the audience has the same reaction, I was always behind. It was always ahead of me. I couldn't second-guess it. I think that that's a brilliant sign that the writers are still able to do this at this stage in the show.”

He also added a great tease for what’s to come: “I will stress this as well. You haven't even seen the half of it yet. The back eight is more radical than ever before. It's almost a tale of two seasons. It really is that radical, the difference between the first eight and the back eight.”

There’s more! “And really, trust me, I think that three of the strongest episodes we've done this season are yet to come. Probably four. There are two episodes that I absolutely adore in the back eight, one of which I think is going to be the most controversial episode that we've probably ever been involved in, and that's saying something. [Laughs]”

Uh-oh! That doesn’t really tell us much about what will happen, but maybe it’s a preview for some of the emotions we’ll feel when the final eight episodes play out.

Are you glad to see a radical change from the first half? What are your expectations for how the second half will be structured?

The Walking Dead Season 4 returns with Episode 9 at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 9, 2014 on AMC.
