"I think the reaction is almost in keeping with the emotional peaks and troughs that the show takes us through. I'm really glad that the show is coming back with information. It's not like people are being left hanging and it's the end of the series or anything," the actress told E! News. "So, I would say it's really a testament to people's dedication, but I feel like this is going to be the longest six months. I really do feel the pain of it."
Once season 7 debuts, though, it will do so with a bang.
"I think there will be some answers right off the bat, and it will be very, very intense. And then we'll be exploring avenues and relationships that we haven't yet, but you'll definitely be taken on the roller coaster ride," she said. "I mean, the season comes back with a pretty intense, explosive start. That much I know."
That bodes well for fans who thought there wasn't enough information given in the finale as to who dies. We still have about 6 months to go before we find out who Negan killed, but at least we know once October gets here we won't have to wait much longer for things to kick into high gear.
