Rick had the fight of his life when he went up against the spiked walker formerly known as Winslow on the previous episode of The Walking Dead. Played by makeup effects artist Gino Crognale, the incredible creation of Winslow by Greg Nicotero's KNB EFX team is featured in a new behind-the-scenes video that you can watch right now.

"Go behind the scenes with the cast and crew to see how they made the hellish spiked walker in the Scavengers’ hideout."

Titled "Hostilities and Calamities," The Walking Dead Episode 711 airs on Sunday, February 26th at 9:00pm ET on AMC. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates, and check out the new behind-the-scenes video below.

The Walking Dead Episode 711 – "Hostilities and Calamities": "An outsider experiences The Sanctuary."

Season 7b synopsis: The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.

Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose - to defeat Negan - it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.

We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We'll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.

“The Walking Dead” is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Tom Luse."
