WARNING: Possible spoilers for The Walking Dead season six finale ahead, or not. Can’t spoil what didn’t happen.
So we’ve heard plenty of things about The Walking Dead season six finale to this point, countering the idea that the show is on its last legs or in trouble. If Donald Trump has taught us anything, any kind of press can be helpful for you to a point. Ratings were down for the finale, but the season seven premiere might end up being one of the biggest due to this outrageous cliffhanger the show has levied.
Or it should unless a group of fans get their way. In response to the finale, some fans have started a petition to find out who Negan kills and their demands just seem so reasonable:
I would like AMC to show us who Negan killed in the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead. We want this either in an interim episode that borders Season 6 and 7, or a short R-Rated webisode that shows us the death in all it’s bloody glory. Either of these are fine as long as it’s released before May 30th.
Produce an entire new episode for us to see who dies…or else. You can easily see this working out, especially since the petition currently has more than half the supporters it needs to move forward — assuming forward is somebody’s trash can at AMC.
What puts a damper on this petition — other than the weird demands of fans on a television series — is the idea that the person who dies hasn’t even been determined by the showrunners at this point. Sure, they could go pick up a comic and live with the idea that we’re going to hug close to the source material. That might very well happen and the audio seemed to hint at that. But so many wires are crossed about this finale and what we can expect, it’s easier to just assume we’re going to head in a different direction or not think about it at all. You can’t really trust what the creators say at this point.
The Walking Dead will return this fall and we will get our answer then. Will fans be there despite their current anger?
