"I'm going to go back to super disgusting. I mean, super disgusting stuff," is how showrunner Scott M. Gimple described "Strangers" to our Dalton Ross in his post-premiere interview. "I used the rotisserie-chicken description—with the meat sliding off the bones," is how executive producer, director, and effects maestro Greg Nicotero described it to Dalton in EW's September Walking Dead cover story. Dalton noted that kind of talk makes Nicotero "giddy."
And, finally, we have Bob’s description: "If a sewer could puke, this is what it'd smell like."
