So Walking Dead surprised me with last night’s episode. I know it’s not the raunchiest of scenes compared to what cinema and the internet have to offer, but it definitely was uncharacteristically raw for cable television. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, in last’s night episode, When The Dead Come Knocking, the beautiful Lauren Cohan, in the role of Maggie Greene, spends almost the entire episode topless.
Somewhere around halfway through the show, The Governor moves in to interrogate Maggie as to the whereabouts of the group. When charm fails, he orders her to take her shirt and bra off and threatens her with unbiblical things. Later in the episode, he pulls her into another room, still wearing naught but her pants and modesty, and interrogates her in the presence of Glen, Merle and some nameless lackeys that we’ll probably never see again. Oh, spoiler alert, by the way.
Yeah, sure, her hands are covering up the naughty bits the entire time, but this is the closest we’ve gotten to a nude scene from her since the blessing that was Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj. Well, I mean the scene was a blessing. The movie itself was a steaming pile of poo-poo. Intellectually speaking, the movie was to college sex comedies as college sex comedies are to movies in general. But I shouldn’t be too harsh, for without its existence, we wouldn’t have gotten any hint of Lauren Cohan’s boobs…
…until the other week. This actually got past my radar the first time around, but I stumbled upon an interview that Lauren Cohan did with Ladygunn Magazine while researching this story. The piece they did included a photoshoot. The photoshoot they did did not include a bra. I don’t know what to say. First Jennifer Lawrence’s pokies on the cover of Rolling Stone, and now this. 2012 will go down as a great year. The pictures directly above and below are from that shoot. Click on them to see the full-sized images, or you can check out the rest of the photos and the full thing on the Ladygunn website.
As for the clips and caps from the episode in question, you’ll find both below, capped straight from AMC’s HD stream. Don’t forget to check out the GIFs on Tumblr.
