To say the very least, Andrew Lincoln’s final episode on “The Walking Dead” earlier this month ended with a bang, as Rick Grimes willingly exploded a bridge he was standing on in order to prevent a massive herd of walkers from getting to his friends. Of course, Rick didn’t actually end up dying from the explosion, but he sacrificed himself all the same.
After the explosion quite literally cut the bridge in two, the walkers dumped into the raging waters below like lemmings, making for one of the show’s most epic sequences to date.
And wouldn’t ya know it, *most* of what you saw was visual effects work.
No, a bridge wasn’t actually blown up for the scene, and most of the zombies featured in it were computer-generated. The masters at Goodbye Kansas Studios made it happen.
