The Walking Dead Season 7 Alternate Death Scene
An alternate death scene was filmed for Maggie 
A video has leaked online showing an alternate death scene for The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere.

In the below video, we see Negan kills Maggie. Maggie, unlike Abe ("Suck my nuts!"), doesn't have anything to say - she simply spits blood at Negan as a final F**k you before getting her skull completely bashed in.
Do you think killing off a sick pregnant woman would be going too far, or would you have been happier to see Maggie go instead of who we actually lost?

It will be interesting to see if any of these alternate videos make it to the special features on the DVD/Blu-Ray when released. I sure hope they do!

If you liked this, make sure to check out the uncensored version of Negan swearing from the Season 6 Finale. Thankfully, this will appear on the Blu-Ray when available.

Rick can't quite believe the ratings!

Well, that wasn't really much of a shock now was it? The Season 7 Premiere absolutely destroyed TV ratings - almost as much as Negan destroyed poor Glenn's face.


Too soon?

The Season 7 Premiere "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be" managed to deliver 17 million viewers with a phenomenal rating of 8.4 amongst adults aged 18-49. To put things into perspective, that's a higher rating than Sunday Night Football, not to mention any other series currently on the air.

The Walking Dead's all-time highest ratings happen to have been the season 5 Premiere - 17.3 million people tuned in to see how Rick and co. would escape from that box car back in Terminus.

Also, it turns out that the 90 minute special of Talking Dead which aired after the Premiere was the most-watched post-show ever with 7.6 million viewers. That's not much of a surprise, though, I mean the whole cast was pretty much there, not to mention Scott Gimple and Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman himself!

Here are both the promo and sneak peek videos for next week's episode of The Walking Dead.

Episode Title: The Well

Synopsis: For a number of familiar faces, a new, well-established community seems too good to be true.

Negan and Lucille in the Season 7 Premiere

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

It seemed like the premiere was going to start off really well and reveal who Negan killed, but instead, it dragged it out. As if we needed to wait longer! I thought they ended season six on a cliffhanger so that when the show came back it would immediately show who died. So after the first set of commercials, I thought “Okay now maybe we’ll get to the action.” I was wrong as we had to see Negan play with Rick as if he were food. It was actually disconcerting that Rick thought he could still be a hard ass and stand up to Negan instead of shutting up and keeping his friends and family safe.

We then get a flashback and they reveal it was Abraham that was victim to Negan’s bat Lucille. Though Abraham took it like a champ, it still didn’t have quite the reaction I thought it would. I did think the writers were smart in showing Rosita upset, rather than showing more of Sasha because we didn’t see that much of her and Abraham together. Rosita knew Abraham before the rest of the cast so it makes sense she would take it harder. 

Of course, I expected Daryl to be idiotic and go after Negan. That was ridiculous because Negan told them to stay in line and not fight him or he would retaliate. What didn’t they understand by that? He literally beat the brains out of their friend! 

Once that happened I knew it meant bad news for the group, and as I anticipated Negan decided Lucille was hungry for more and swung at Glenn. Now for those of us who read the comic books, that’s no surprise. Regardless, the Walking Dead doesn’t always follow the comics so no one was sure who was on the chopping block…literally! Glenn’s death was way more gruesome than Abraham’s, and they actually followed true to the comics with that one. 

The fact that Negan is capable of such an act, makes me wonder what happened to him to bring him to this point. Sure we got to see the group engage with cannibals and murderers, but this…this is different. Negan kills to make a point. He clearly can’t fend for himself if he has to steal the resources of other groups. Why couldn’t he do what Rick and Alexandria did? Obviously, the character has gone to a dark place, and watching him kill Abraham and Glenn makes me wish he gets what he deserves. 

If Rick wasn’t so cocky and didn’t let his pride get in the way, Abraham and Glenn would still be alive. Now I know that it’s all part of the plot, but it makes Rick less likeable. I did like that Negan shows he’s in charge. He continues to prove his stance as a leader well after he kills Glenn. When he speaks it’s like listening to your parents say “Get over here now. Don’t make me tell you again!”

Despite some minor pet peeves with Rick’s decision making, it was a pretty spectacular episode. I’m pretty bummed they chose two amazing and dynamic characters to kill off, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Who will Negan obliterate?
Unfortunately, I've just managed to stumble across spoilers for the Season 7 Premiere of The Walking Dead. I figured this was going to happen, and to be honest, it's not all that much of a spoiler to me because it kind of confirms what my thoughts were in the first place. But still, I'm kinda' gutted. After all, we're now only 3 days away from officially finding out who meets Lucille. Sadly that surprise has now been completely ruined for me.

It's true what they say. Ignorance is bliss.

I'm not going to mention details of the spoilers here. TalkingWalkingDead.com has never been about that ( these guys have you covered there! ) so please don't freak out and start unfollowing us in case you think we might post something that will ravage your 'Walking Dead' experience.

Just make sure to be careful regarding spoilers if you're the type of person who has a particular hatred towards them. They sure are rife at the moment.
