First up if you scroll on down below you'll find the latest still from the series, which features our hero 'Rick Grimes' locked, loaded and ready for action. Then we've got Mr. Mazzara talking to The LA Times about a number of things involving "The Walking Dead," including shooting kids and having zombies climb up ladders. If you haven't watched Season 2 yet be forewarned that spoilers lie ahead! Check it:

"On our show, this family has stuck together. It's sort of a makeshift family where after this social crisis, you can imagine your family and neighbors and people you meet in your town being stuck together and trying to figure out how to survive, and who do you trust. And maybe you can't stand this person but you're stuck with them 'cause that's who's around. So it's about forming a family and how that family drives you crazy, but yet that's really what you have to lean on to survive."

"We had two big deaths. We had, you know, Shane played by Jon Bernthal. And that was in Robert Kirkman's comic book. ... We were having a lot of discussions about, well, this group is on this farm and is the farm dangerous? And we need people to be killed by zombies. We need to have a mean character because otherwise it's gonna feel like … you've got these scary zombies but nobody's getting killed by them. They can kill each other, but you need some zombie action there. So we decided to kill Jeff DeMunn's character, Dale."

"We had a debate about the young boy, Carl. And everyone wants to know why Carl's not in the house. Well, it's boring to sit in a house. And he's a little boy and he wants to mix it up and stuff. And he's walking through the woods and finds a zombie trapped in the mud and he starts doing what any Huck Finn would do and starts throwing rocks at the monster. And then later that is the same zombie that pulls itself free and kills Dale. And the writers were very nervous about that, you know? It feels earned, but it's a risk. Because Dale is a beloved character and if this other character is involved and responsible for that death, is the audience going to now hate Carl? But I thought the story was worth the chance."
