Lauren Cohan sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly recently, and she opened up about whether she was expecting the storyline that was introduced on the most recent episode of The Walking Dead.

While fans mostly just want to know whether Glenn is dead or not, many are now left wondering what will become of the onscreen couple now that Maggie has admitted she’s pregnant. And while a lot of fans have been waiting for a moment like this (at least, I have) to arise, Lauren says she didn’t expect anything because the show’s writers don’t give even the actors any hint of what their fate will be.
“I had a sneaking suspicion it was going to happen, but not from any clues. We really get no clues. I just felt that maybe there was the desire to go down that road for Maggie and Glenn. Because we talked about it in season 3 when they weren’t pregnant, but said if they were it would be okay. It’s just such an interesting topic, and I overwhelmingly feel like with the loss of life that there is a responsibility to create life. I know there are opinions on every side of the camp about being pregnant in a time like this, but I just find it really exciting. Even within the craziness now, I think it’s correct that this is the next step on that journey for those two,” Cohan said.
Part of the appeal of The Walking Dead is that fans never know where each episode will take them, but that also means coming to terms with the fact that some of our favorite characters will get killed off. No one is safe.
