The Walking Dead knows the quickest way to capture that special someone’s heart is by ripping it out of their chest — or, sending them a zombie-themed Valentine’s Day card. The hit AMC series has teamed with Hallmark for a set of e-cards that promote undying love, as well as the second half of the show’s sixth season, which begins February 14th.
The animated cards feature images of ravenous zombies paired with pristine puns such as, “Love you to pieces,” “I could just eat you up” and “I could give you my heart — don’t eat it all in one sitting.”
One particularly charming card, boasts a delightful piece of music, a zombie in heart-shaped sunglasses and the sweet note, “I like you for your beauty and your brains — but mostly your brains.”
The Walking Dead will wrap up its sixth season with an eight-episode run that begins with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his fellow survivors holed up in Alexandria after November’s gruesome mid-season finale. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lincoln promised the first episode would include several revelations about Rick, while the rest of the season would move swiftly as the group establishes their new home base.
“Rick’s strength is seeing that we can fortify this place,” Lincoln said. “A lot of these concerns and questions get answered relatively quickly in the first two or three episodes of this back eight. There is a time jump, I will say, at some point. And you will see why we stay in Alexandria.”
