I’m sure that you remember how the previous season of the AMC Original Series “The Walking Dead” ended and if you didn’t you best check the listings to see if your area is showing that episode in advance of tonight’s season premiere. It was the episode where we finally met the dreaded Negan and he is for certain an SOB if you will pardon my French. Life just got harder for our happy go lucky cast of zombie apocalypse wanderers.
Season 6 Recap: The residents of Alexandria put more trust in Rick’s group to protect the town better. A group known as the Wolves use a zombie horde to attack Alexandria, and many lives are lost before the living regain control. While recovering, they learn of a community called the Hilltop, who offer to help trade supplies if they can end the threat of the extortionist Saviors led by a man named Negan. Although Rick’s group decimate one Savior outpost, they are later caught by Negan, and forced to swear loyalty to him.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you might remember based on the photo above, someone is gonna get it in this episode. The last season finished with a POV visual of Negan cracking down on someone but who is it going to be? Speaking frankly, I am pretty certain that it’s going to be ——– (oh come on you didn’t think I would really chime in on something as intense as this did you?). Anyway, someone goes tonight and as a close friend once told me about the show way in the beginning “don’t get too used to anyone” and he’s already been right about that in my eyes. Closing up, I must beg you to not be one of “those” people who love to ruin the outcome the second it happens. People do go to concerts and plays or have to work late and rely on their DVR or perhaps even some are still using a VHS Recorder (remember those). I’d suggest a media blackout if you don’t think that you will be watching live but also advise you to get to seeing tonight’s premiere ASAP because the outcome will likely be discussed everywhere minutes after it transpires. Goodbye to whoever is getting it during the premiere, we loved you in so many episodes.
