I’m going to say spoilers ahead, don’t read if you don’t want behind the scenes stuff!
I was originally wrote Willow as a throw-away character. Someone who was just there in the background and then get’s eaten by zombies. (Don’t worry, keep reading) But I can’t do it! Look at that big doofy face! He’s just so damn earnest and he just wants to help! I blame 2016. That was a shitty year, and I don’t know anybody that had a perfect 2016. I need some bright spots in this world damn it! I’m keeping this character!
But this will have a butterfly effect in my script. I’m going to have to change some things, which will lead to a big reveal that I was saving for later. But I think adjusting the pacing is a good thing.
Of course that might mean someone else gets eaten…
