In a recent interview withj Zap2It, Greg Nicotero admitted that he knows exactly what’s on that Terminus grill, and has known since directing Episode 415 that fans would agonize over it. “I know what [Mary]‘s cooking, and people will find out next season what she’s cooking.”

When asked about his Season 4 highlights, Nicotero said he was proud of both Episode 415: Us and Episode 409: After, which he describes as “probably the best episode I’ve ever directed.”

However, always looking to the future, he thinks that next season will top the last.

“I feel like I’m having my championship season,” he said in closing.
