The Walking Dead decided to go on the worst RV road trip ever as Rick and his crew spent countless hours driving into herds of Saviors only to finally fall victim to their biggest enemy. Of course, nothing was revealed and now we’re left wondering who was on the other end of Negan’s bat. Fuck you, show!
I was super excited about this finale for so many reasons and I have to admit, I was pretty let down with this one. Negan didn’t even show up until the final minutes of the episode and, while it was tense as fuck, I fail to see the point of not showing us who the victim was. I’m still predicting it was Glenn, which would make the most sense to me, but I have officially given up on guessing who’s going to die. There is no possible way of identifying who was killed, just subtle clues that ultimately suggest that anyone could have been Lucille’s victim. The only person we can probably rule out is Carl (and probably Rick) since Negan threatens to have his other eye cut out if anyone makes a scene.
It also looks like we’re going to be introduced to a brand new group of people next season with Carol and Morgan stumbling across some men wearing the most ridiculous looking armor I have ever seen. While we have no idea who these people are, I think it’s safe to say that they are probably going to be allies in the future in helping Alexandria out with their Savior problem.
Season six was definitely full of insane moments but I am definitely saddened by the fact that we weren’t allowed to see who was killed in the end. It’s these types of cliffhangers that drive me absolutely crazy. In this case, I really don’t think hiding the victim was necessary though. In fact, the finale would have been 100X better had they just showed us who it was. Instead, we’re going to have to deal with six months of speculation…again. Sigh.
Now, let’s get on a horse, gallop our way to Pee Pee Pants City and enjoy the review, fellow Walkers!
