How Fear The Walking Dead's Star Feels About Shocking Death In Midseason Premiere

I don't know, actually. I guess you're asking to articulate about things that aren't on screen, so I'll just be making stuff up. I guess I'd imagine, certainly when he gets shot, he probably wishing, 'I wish I could see June one more time,' or something like that. We aren't treated to what's going on in his head. A lot of that's going to be filled in by the audience, which I think is a great thing about what we do, is all the stuff that's not on camera or not spoken out. . . . Maybe John feels guilty. I don't know. Maybe he just wishes everything was like it used to be. I'm sure he doesn't want to feel suicidal, but he does. He's just in a real pit of despair, thinking she'll be better off without him somehow. I think the whole audience already knows that's not true, and that he shouldn't have been thinking that way, but he was. But Morgan talked him out of it, and I think he was planning to go back to get Dakota and Morgan safely home and have at it again. But I think that's good storytelling as well. You know, it's a tragedy. This is a tragedy, which is genre, you know? 'Oh, man, he was just about to turn the corner. Oh, no, don't! I hope that doesn't happen now!' That's why it hurts, you know? That's why it hurts.
