The Walking Dead Star: "The Farm Is Not Secure"

Andrew Lincoln and Steven Yeun in The Walking DeadOne of the major criticisms of The Walking Dead's the second season has been its reliance on Hershel's farm as a setting. This has ultimately resulted in a decline in tension for the show, leading many critics and fans to jump ship from the AMC zombie drama. With the show's steady improvement following its return from its winter hiatus, though, things are starting to heat up. According to star Andrew Lincoln, the farm might not be on the show for much longer. 

"Something happens and they realize very quickly that the farm is not as secure as they may think," Lincoln told The Washington Post. This 'something' is probably related to Dave and Tony, the two men they shot in the bar at the end of "Nebraska," as well as their friends, who show up in Sunday's episode "Triggerfinger." 

"There are more dangerous things out there than the zombies," Lincoln warned. "Things just keep getting worse from here."

And, since the show is progressing, Lincoln hinted that we might find out the answer to one of The Walking Dead's biggest mysteries: what CDC scientist Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) whispered to Rick right before his death in the season one finale. "This is a scientist who seemingly held all the cards to what this epidemic is about," Lincoln shared. "You would imagine he would have something of value to say on that matter. Well, he chose to kill himself [instead]." Lincoln described Jenner's whisper as "pivotal." 

And don't think Lincoln's close to sharing that secret; his lips are sealed tightly. “Not even my wife knows what he whispered to me," he said. "[Rick] chooses not to tell people, so why would I tell?”

The Walking Dead airs Sunday night with the new episode "Triggerfinger" at 9/8c on AMC.

It's great that people can get the business loans moreover, that opens up new possibilities.

It's just because in the comic, from which the show is inspired, they left the farm much quicker. Untill now, most part of the farm (and season two) has been fillers, never happened originaly in the comic.

I never had a problem with the farm. It makes sense to have a home base to stay secure for a while. I knew they would always move on at some point, but its rediculous for Rick/Lori to leave a somewhat secure/seculded place WITH A DOCTOR (that will come in handy with the pregnancy - and other things, like gunshots). I would personally be dissapointed if they just left the farm - just to please the fans. The farm has always been fine by me, theres no reason why we cant keep exploring the local area - such as - the woods - the church - the pharmacy - and now the bar. There is plenty of stuff to see/explore and encounter danger without the entire group leaving. Some people say there isnt enough zombies, but so far all episodes have had zombie encounters. From the first Herd of zombies on the highway, to the forest zombies, well zombies, the school zombies (that ate otis), the pharmacy zombie, the road zombie... There is plenty of action, danger and story to see. I dont understand why people complain. I'd rather rewatch a thousand times than watch most of primetime network TV. Like we need more Dancing with Americas Next X Factor Idol....
