Well, that was rather unsatisfying. I’ve been looking forward who dies at the season finale of “The Walking Dead.” Though they had not exactly revealed who it is, the money’s on…
*The Walking Dead spoilers below, for both the TV series and the comic books*
In the season finale, Negan makes an appearance, capturing most of Rick’s group. They are pushed into a hopeless situation. The intense and stressful spirit of death lingers in the air. You get the strong feeling that someone will die – you know someone will.
This is reflection of the previous season’s opening season. When the group had been trapped by the people of Terminus. Glenn on his knees, the cannibal behind him ready to smash the platinum baseball bat into his head. And on the last minute, Carol storms in and saves the day.
Same story with Negan. But there is no one to help. No one will come. Not this time. Negan smashes his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, which he calls Lucille, into one of Rick’s group. We see what’s happening in a first person perspective. We’ll have to wait until October to find out who dies. But this is Glenn, my gut tells me so. It’s been a while since we had a significant death that will affect everyone, viewers included.
I hope I’m wrong though.
