Resurrected The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan tells Conan her best zombie kill nicknames – The A.V. Club

Anyone still watching the seemingly unkillable The Walking Dead in its tenth season was greeted to a big return last week, as Lauren Cohans Maggie returned to her original zombie apocalypse survivor family. As Dead-heads know, Maggies stalwart ass-kicker left after the seeming (and frankly underwhelming) death of Andrew Lincolns series protagonist Rick Grimes, and, while the return of a long-lived and enduringly popular character was housed in something of a so-so episode, at least Maggies still a human, which is nice. At least if your names not Negan, as the episode saw Jeffrey Dean Morgans sneering former baddie and head-basher greeting the understandably frosty Maggie with a taken aback, Well, shit.

As well he should, as the fallout from Negans truly grisly and, for some, series-despoiling baseball bat-murder of Maggies husband Glenn (and scene-stealing badass Abraham) a few seasons ago isnt something the steely Maggie is likely to shrug off going forward. Appearing on Wednesdays Conan, Cohan did note that getting your skull smashed in on The Walking Dead isnt all bad, as the cast went all out for Steven Yeun and Michael Cudlitz at the traditional sorry-we-murdered-you cast party. Conan showed off a picture of the (surviving) cast all donning fake ginger Abraham mustaches in honor of Cudlitz, while much of the cast did an elaborately choreographed farewell rendition of Backstreet Boys I Want It That Way for karaoke fanatic Yeun. (Apparently there is a video, but Cohan said nobodys ever, ever going to see that.)

As for her live return to The Walking Dead, Cohan naturally wasnt spoiling anything about the future. But, thanks to a Conan staffers editing efforts, the former Whiskey Cavalier star did happily guide Conan through some of her finest zombie kills. Honestly, its too short a video for all the walker-slaughter Maggies dished out over the post-apocalyptic years, but, still, its good to know that Walking Dead cast members get all nostalgic about their best acts of undead-violence. Taking Conan through her repertoire, Cohan pointed out the waffle maker, the shish kabob (works even for zombies not named Bob), and the hearing aid for the rare but satisfying double-eardrum skewer. And dont get Cohan started on her improvised municipal signpost slashings, called, naturally, the obey street signs. Yeah, Negan had better watch his smarmy ass.
