After months of speculation after the Season 6 cliffhanger for The Walking Dead, we finally know who Negan killed. The scene was brutal and heart-wrenching.
This post has major spoilers for the season premiere of The Walking Dead.
Don’t read on unless you are OK being spoiled or have already seen the episode.
Here’s what you need to know about the Season 7 premiere.
Fans gathered around their TVs and computers, terrified to find out who Negan was going to choose. And he finally made his choice.
Abraham is dead.
The revelation came slower than fans were expecting, after the first commercial break. But the scene was still horrifying. Abraham was a favorite of many fans, and now he’s gone. The scene where he was laying on the ground, beaten, was absolutely terrible. He tried to stand up and be strong, but it was impossible.
But then Daryl tried to fight back, and Negan had to make a point.
Fans felt safe, but they were wrong.
Without any warning, Negan killed Glenn, in a scene even more horrific than Abraham’s. Glenn’s scene is going to probably give fans nightmares for a long time. It was absolutely horrifying. It showed the devastation done to him up close.
How will Maggie survive? How will Daryl deal with the guilt of knowing he caused this? How will anyone recover?
Negan then had to break Rick completely, to the point where he was ready to chop off Carl’s arm. That was a demonstration of complete control.
And now Negan has Daryl.
At the end, Maggie’s grief was heartwrenching. As Rick drove away, you knew that things would never be the same.
