Halfway Mark: The Best TV Episodes of 2014 (So Far), Part 1

2013 was an absolutely amazing year for television, with shows like Breaking Bad and Spartacus going out with some of their best episodes yet and new series like Hannibal and Orphan Black bursting onto the scene. While the jury’s still out on how this year will compare to last, at the halfway point, 2014 is shaping up to be pretty darn great year as well.

Scenestr caught up with Mazzara recently, and the man had the following to say about the situation, the current state of affairs, the finale, and where the show is going in Season 4...

On the death of the much beloved Axel, “To be very honest, I didn’t want to kill off any of the major characters. We obviously didn’t want to kill Rick. Carol was on the chopping block, but I didn’t want to kill Carol because we have a story coming up with her. We looked at the possibility of killing Beth. I don’t think that actor knows that. You know, I love Emily Kinney. But
