The Walking Dead Star Is Worried Ezekiel And Jerry Wont Meet Again – We Got This Covered

Given the dangers of their post-apocalyptic world, any parting between characters on The Walking Deadcould be their last, but there was a particularly loaded goodbye recently on the show. When Ezekiel left Hilltop to join Eugene and Yumiko on an important mission to rendezvous with Eugenes mysterious radio contact Stephanie, he had an emotional farewell with his old pal and right-hand man Jerry. What with the former Kingdom leader suffering from terminal cancer and the Whisperers attacking back home, theres a real feeling that the friends wont meet again.

And its not just the fans worrying about this, either. While speaking on the last episode of Talking Dead,Khary Payton revealed that hes worried he wont get to share any more scenes with Cooper Andrews on the series. The duo both joinedTWDin the same episode season 7, episode 2 so theyve understandably become very close. But are their co-starring days behind them? Heres what Payton had to say:

Its hard to talk about for me, because I think that I mean, this entire show has been a gift to me. But I think the greatest gift that both Ezekiel and I were given wasCooper Andrews and Jerry, Payton said. Because he wasnt in the comics, he wasnt really supposed to be there, you know? But they conjured this character out of the air, because they knew about Cooper and they knew hed be a great fit, and hes been like a brother to me.

To clarify, the actor went on to add that he doesnt know one way or the other, but hes already getting sad about it because he knows thats what everyone is thinking.

I dont know if that was the last goodbye, I dont like to think of it as the last goodbye, but people keep talking to me like its the last goodbye, and it really starts to I almost said the wrong word, Payton added. It really starts to work on me emotionally, I guess would be the way of saying it.

Host Chris Hardwick then encouraged the passionate Payton to let it all out, saying he can swear all he wants. And the star did as he was told.

Its fing with my sh-t, dude. Its fing with my sh-t real bad. Im barely keeping it together!

Last time we saw them, Ezekiel and co.s mission to Charleston, West Virginia had got a lot more complicated, and has also gained a new party member in the form of Princess. Meanwhile, Jerry and the other survivors are facing Betas walker army which hes sent to surround the communities hideout.

Unfortunately, to find out what happens next, well have to wait a while. The Walking Deadseason 10s finale has been delayed indefinitely due to post-production work being unable to be completed right now. It will air at some point later this year on AMC, but as of yet, its unclear when.
