The reality is Rick is at least partially to blame for the group’s current situation. If you haven’t watched the end of Season 6 of the Walking Dead, go watch it now and be ready because I’m about to talk about it. You’ve had ample time to check it out, so no regrets about spoilers here.
Rick was a bit overconfident with his leadership of the town of Alexandria and has gotten his crew into a small bind. Actually, it could be the biggest bind of the series. The end of Season 6 left us off at the hand of Negan. Negan is by far the fiercest, hardest and most ruthless of the villains in the series. And he’s out for blood. Apparently us doesn’t like Rick meddling around in his affairs and this time Rick may have bitten off more than he can handle.
Rick and his crew will be kind of f#cked on October 23rd on AMC for the premier of the Season 7 of the Walking Dead.
While there is no telling yet who it will be. Negan has already made one of the team pay the ultimate price. He’s beaten one of the gang in the head with his most prized possession. His brutally awesome, barbed wire, wrapped baseball bat. Negan loves what he does and it shows, he’s really a master of his craft. Whoever got it at the end of Season 6 (My Money is on Abraham), they got it really hard.
So when the season premier comes on, we already know the gang will be at least one team member down and still in the worst situation of their lives. According to Negan it really didn’t matter who got offed first after his round of eenie-meenie-minie-moe, because everyone is about the get whacked. There is going to have to be a miracle to get Rick and his girlfriend, as well as son and several other members of his crew, out of this horrible position they’ve found themselves in.
If the creators really want to spice things up as well as piss some people off, they’d have Negan go right into smashing someone else in the face.
That is something I would not see coming at all. My guess will be King Ezekiels guards from The Kingdom will come in and save the day, but we will have to wait and see.
One thing is for sure, it’s going to be good. On a side note, Nicotero said that directing the last two weeks of the show was the hardest thing he’s ever done in his life. Let’s give some likes and shares for Nicotero and the rest of our friends at The Walking Dead. And by all means, please disagree with me or call me an A-Hole or whatever in the comments below. I would love to hear all your thoughts on this and how Season 7 of the Walking Dead will turn out.
