Many of the cast members and production crew have weighed in on The Walking Dead season 4 finale, which is airing on March 30.
We know that the episode heavily features Rick, Carl, and Michonne–including their arrival at Terminus and a run-in with Joe’s group.
Daryl is also confirmed as a part of the episode, but the fate and situations of the other main characters remain a mystery.
At least part of Glenn’s group is believed to have gotten held hostage by the Terminus residents, based on a series of clips from the episode.
It’s unclear whether any of the group, or Tyreese, Carl, and Beth, appear at all in the episode. Most likely many if not all of them do.
See what the cast and crew have had to say below.

-Confirms Rick’s group meets Joe’s group. “They meet, yeah… they would be pretty bad trackers if they didn’t meet, is all I’m saying,” he told Yahoo. “But you never know. I’ve got a feeling that… well, something’s going to go down, definitely.”
-The violence in this episode will be unprecedented, he told the NY Post. “I will say that something happens in the finale that when I read it, I called Scott Gimple, the showrunner, because we’ve always been incredibly responsible with the violence in this show. And I just wanted to ask, ‘Is this a step too far?’”

“I would expect a very high level of deadliness,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s pretty deadly. There will be some very difficult, shaking moments for these characters,” he told THR.

Greg Nicotero (Executive Producer)
The finale is a “perfect culmination” of all the hints planted over the season, he told THR.
“Every beat and moment leads somewhere and pays off. We spent a lot of time crafting those bits and pieces. Seeing where the season goes and how it ends — the last line in the episode gave me chills when I first read it — I think people are going to love it. People are going to feel like they went on an amazing journey and all we’ve done is open a new door to a new journey. The threat level is high. It’s suspenseful, thrilling and exciting.”
