It was the moment fans had waited months for as Negan’s victim was finally revealed in one of the most brutal scenes in The Walking Dead history. After Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) took away Glenn (Stephen Yeun) and Abraham’s (Michael Cudlitz) lives with repetitive blows of his bat, it remains uncertain if it’s worth all the efforts if Maggie (Lauren Cohan) could deliver her unborn child successfully. The blow caused one of his eyes to gruesomely pop out, and he couldn’t quite get his words straight. The episode ended with Negan asserting himself as the new leader. The Spoil the Dead forum predicts these two will meet their maker in “The Walking Dead” Season 7 Episode 8 “Exodus” and this should be the mid-season finale since this marks the halfway point of the 16-episode season. Glenn and Abraham are gone, Rick’s been broken, and Daryl is a Savior recruit. Even the most hardcore Walking Dead fan might recover before the trick-or-treating begins next week.
The teen broke down into a ball of tears after watching the shocking episode.
“If you didn’t feel anything, we would have been in big trouble”, he said. However, they were left in despair with Negan’s surprise killing of Glenn following Daryl’s outburst. The only thing worse is seeing the glee Negan takes in his tasks.
“To lose them, I thought it was very important for us to see and feel that loss, because that loss transforms everybody. So, picking up from moments after the death and then going into the beginning’s of Negan trying to break Rick”.
Did the Season 7 premiere wink at an old comic book storyline? With so much devastation in the first episode, it’s scary to think what Negan has planned for Rick and the others in future episodes.
“I know he’s going to have an fantastic career because he’s an unbelievable actor, but I knew it was going to be hard on him”.
Yuen has been on the show since season 1 along with Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, and Lennie James.
Nicotero: We really needed to drive Rick and Negan’s story throughout the season and we felt that one death would do the trick, but the second death, Glenn’s death, really, really propels us into a very different direction.
Will the group stay together? .
Actually it beat it into a bubbling, frothing, bloody pulp with a barbed-wire wound baseball bat affectionately called Lucille on its Season 7 opener. Next week’s episode, titled “The Well”, airs Sunday, October 30 on AMC.
