What did Michonne see at the end of The Walking Dead? (AMC/The Walking Dead)

The Walking Dead had an extra long episode that ended with a scene that left fans a little confused. Michonne saw something at the very end that seemed to really shake her up. This post contains spoilers through Season 7 Episode 4 “Service.”

Here’s what you need to know.

At the very end of the episode, Michonne came across something that was hard to identify, but seemed to make her upset. It looked like a crumbled building or a stack of something burning, perhaps something that had recently been demolished. 

It turns out that the scene is a lot simpler than it appeared.

Michonne saw a stack of burning mattresses at the end of the episode. Negan’s crew didn’t even need the mattresses that they took from Alexandria. They just took almost everyone’s mattresses, dumped them down the road, and set them on fire. The whole trip wasn’t about Negan’s group needing anything, but it was all about psychological torture and breaking people’s wills.

What did you think about Negan’s visit? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. I’m sorry but the they have turned Rick into a WUS and the show no longer holds my attentio because of it. A man with a bat? Really??? The Governor had a tank. Someone please tell me that my favorite show hasn’t went to crap like I have seen so far.

    • Also, what you saw is stoking the fire. Do you really think anyone would be interested in a show where a man who had brass balls never caved? Conversely, do you think a show would continue to hold viewers interest if that same man was left demoralized and never changed again? They’re showing us just how evil this man is, and what Rick is going to need to do now in order to not only survive, but win. If you’re really such a fan of the show, you will have more faith in it than your comment demonstrates.

    • Are you really this stupid? It’s all part of the narrative and what makes Negan such an amazing villain. Yes the governor had a tank and brute force, but Negan has an army. He instills fear and psychological trauma into anyone that doesn’t immediately follow his wishes. How samey and predictable would it be if Rick’s group instantly retaliated and won albeit with a few causalities? We’v seen that before. We haven’t seen Rick (or Daryl for that matter) get so emotionally broken as they are this season. It’s called a story

    • He wont stay like that, just go with it. Im happy hes cooperating aswell, it means less people i care about die. Spencers going to die if he keeps arguing rick too. The show still has plenty of perks and once they move on to all out war the show will be better than ever trust me

    • It’s a character arc numbnuts. Neegan will walk all over Rick and things will get worse before they get better, but Rick will get his mojo back. And because we’ve witnessed our fearless leader get torn from the top right down to the bottom and to being a complete wuss, when he rises again it will be so much more epic.

    • You retard, the are breaking him down so in the end he will find redemption and get revenge. Building angst, suspense and sorrow for his ultimate win. I swear some people are stupid.

    • Dena, I agree that his season has been the absolute worst yet. I have watched them all and never miss 1. That Ezekiol nonsense last week? Lets follow the nights of the round table because he has a tiger! Not very believable. I thought this week was a little better, but I find it hard to believe that someone wouldn’t have blown negans head off by now. I get that people are scared for their lives, but some of them just have to want to die, so why wouldn’t they go out like a hero and take Negan out.

    • All of you simpletons are so needy for big explosions and large dramatic scenery. Go watch a Michael Bay film if that’s all you want. Neegan is doing everything he can to break everyone in a way that they haven’t had to endure before. We’ve had emotional destruction, physical destruction, but never mental destruction to this degree and with so many people. Yes, it would be so easy to just shoot him in the head when he’s not looking. However, the fear Neegan has inspired in everyone is unlike anything that the group has experienced before. How can you be so stupid and short-sighted to say that Rick is a wus? You can leave the fandom now. You aren’t wanted.

      • Lol no room for debates anymore, we resort to calling people idiots foe their opinions. There has been a ton of negative comments this season and that is new to walking dead. I get the mental drama they’re dealing with, but that just leads me even farther to say someone would lose it and kill him. They would die right after, its a tough angle for a ton of people to believe

    • Well, if you think about its, this way we get to see another part of him. Nobody can be strong all the time. There’s a point when everybody breaks and honestly, if he acted like he did with the governor we would be bored. This way although Rick is forced to be weak, the others will rise up!

  2. Hollywood hated one particular aspect of Walking Dead: the fact that it had the good guys with guns saving themselves and others over and over. Hollywood’s gun portrayal is virtually always only have bad guys and cops have guns. This depspite the real world fact that a dozen studies have shown 500,000 to three million crimes are prevented by citizens with firearms each year.

    So they needed this “reset” to make the the good guys victims of armed bad guys. This is not my theory it has been discussed on Walking Dead fan forums for a while since the main producer said she was getting criticized for showing firearms positively.

    Another thing we are going to see is a supposed shortage of ammo, and Eugene making ammo. This is patently false on two levels. Firstly ammo is not possible to produce in any numbers, and with any dependability at all, for modern firearms since one cannot make primer. Secondly there are an estimated 100 billion — yes, billion, not million — rounds of ammo in the continental US. There are from 350 to 400 million guns in civilian hands in the USZ, Two or three small cartridge boxes of ammo for each gun is 50 to 75 billion rounds. it is common for an owner of a semi auto firearm to have not 50, but 500 to 1,000 rounds. For a 22 500 rounds is one box. The military alone has 10 billion rounds of 5.56. And that does not include the numbers for the 1.2 million government armed civilian law enforcement

    • Are you retarded? People make their own ammunition all the time. And PS, if you have the proper equipment and drive you can build an assembly line for ammunition just like anyone can… I swear some people….

    • Come on man. My father and Uncle make their own ammunition. It’s much cheaper and has become a hobby. Its not hard at all. My mind is blown by this knowledge you just dropped on us.

    • guys hes saying you cant make large numbers of ammunition like that, and hes right. you need the shells first, and you can only make as many bullets as you have shells for. good luck with that.

    • no, you cant make your own ammo.
      you can reload ammo, which is what you are are talking about when you say you know people who make ammo.
      reloaders use spent casings, resize them, melt scrap lead and mold it into bullets, buy gun powder and buy primers, then put them all together.
      to make your own ammo, you would have to make brass, make a mold, form a casing , precision size, it has to be perfect, make your own gun powder, make your own primer, make a cup to hold the primer, melt the lead and mold it, then put it all together.
      in the case of the walking dead, they would make black powder and use muzzle loaders and cannons. drive shafts or any thick pipe will make a cannon. not good tv. well, i suppose pulling up along side neegans car with a bus with a cannon in every window, them letting him have a broadside volley, would be great tv.

  3. Total tedium. Since the season 6 finale this show has been dead in the water. Now I can’t blame Trump anymore for all the spit on my TV screen.

  4. can’t wait for the end of the season and the death of Negan…Each episode makes me sick . First time ever I really wish the season to end fast

  5. I saw the show moving away from the comic and losing the comic loyalty and those who didn’t read the comic had no idea but I think the writers are trying to lure the comic loyal back and will Neegan is the baddest and most obnoxious character in the show so far so stay tuned to see what happens next……

  6. Those were mattresses? This whole time it looked to me like a burning vehicle/plane or something crashed… because he said he wanted to test out the RPG earlier in the episode.
    Not very well done scene, it’s hard to tell those are mattresses.

    • Yeah they don’t look like mattresses. I thought it was a spaceship or something. I even paused the scene when the burning stuff came into focus.

  7. Mattresses? Wow, I was hoping for aliens. Seeing as ALF is a more realistic character than Negan, I thought if there was some whacky, smooth talking E.T. at least there’d be some levity to the whole situation. Then I remembered it’s a show about a zombie apocalypse and had a good chuckle anyways. Seriously folks, the best way to fight people with guns is to strike back with love. Maybe next episode Rick will invite Negan over for some homemade blueberry pie and a game of Yahtzee!?!

  8. The show has made me sick to watch this past year. New Writers? New something. Fear of the Walking Dead is looking better and better and that’s a poor man’s Mary right there!

  9. why would anyone think neegan came for mattresses?
    of course he needs to control them.
    do you think he luciel’d Abraham and the other guy for excersize?

  10. Too far fetched. Someone would just pop a cap in his ass, the rest of them would just fall like a pack of cards without Negan.

  11. Has anyone read the IndieWire review of the first episode? It was spot on! The show was tedious and boring. The character of Neagan is so poorly written. He’s not in the least bit scary—just a pompous loud-mouth bully with a bat. Now that we’re further into the season, I think if I have to see the cheesy smile and monotonous dialogue with its one note bombast, I’ll scream! Maybe Carl can take over for his father whose whole persona has been rewritten for the sake of . . . .? The whole gun thing was really witless and I’m surprised that Michonne hasn’t taken off on her own, just like Carol. Maybe Carol told the writers she would quit if they wrote a stupid storyline for her character!
