Producers revealed that the first six minutes of the show's return will be "brutal, intense, and that some of the shocks even the cast didn't expect."

Cast member Andrew Lincoln commented, "All of us were just dumbstruck and said, 'We're not going to be able to show this. We're not going to be able to show this'...We are showing it."

Showrunner Scott Gimple and executive producer Greg Nicotero jointly came up with the storyline but did not let the cast in on the details until filming began. Explains Nicotero, "I remember when we were filming it, the other actors had no idea how I choreographed things. So when certain events occur during those first few minutes, everyone's reaction was 'Holy s--t, did I just see what I think I just saw?'... I didn't want these guys to know what was coming up, and it worked really well."
