Just three episodes remain in The Walking Dead Season 6, and each one brings us closer to meeting iconic villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It's speculated that Negan will first appear in the finale, and characters are definitely going to die horrible deaths. Fans are anxious with anticipation.

Why we can't wait for Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan

Now, Melissa McBride, the actress who plays Carol, has given fans even more reason to be concerned (or excited?).

"It was so very dark," McBride told ComicBook.com about the Season 6 finale's script. "I couldn't say anything after I had finished reading it. I felt like I had dropped into a black hole."

So the finale is so grim that it reduced one of the show's most hardened stars to speechlessness. We're terrified/can't wait.
