Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.
So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. “Are they better together but in peril, or separately but free? I think that really Maggie and Glenn are better together. Even if it’s the most perilous situation you know that they’ll find a way out of it — or at least you hope that they’ll find a way out of it. They spent a lot of time trying to find each last year — it’s like, no more!”
Really, even though the people at Terminus may be cannibals and Glenn and Maggie may be their next meal? Yep, agrees Yeun. “I think the preference is to be together regardless of whether the circumstances are difficult,” he told us at the EW photo shoot. “At the least, you’re with the person that matters the most to you in this world. At this point, what your world has become — that is your world. Your world is who your with. The world is the people that you love. If it’s not with them, the what’s the point of continuing on?”
We’ll see if that philosophy works out for the couple when the show returns on Oct. 12. In the meantime, click on the video player below to see Cohan and Yeun share their thoughts on Maggie and Glenn and get a behind-the-scenes peek at their killer EW photo shoot.
