The premiere of the season 7 of The Walking Dead puts an end to the speculation of the Negan cliffhanger from last season

For six long months, the fans have been speculating about who Negan killed. In the season finale of season 6, Rick and crew were put in a helpless situation.

Captured and put on their knees, they were subjected to ‘eenie meenie minee moo’ at the end of Lucille, Negan’s barbed wire baseball bat. He then bashed one of their heads and we were only given the effect of death with VFX blood.

That means that fans were left speculating for six months about who had died. No clue, everyone was praying that it wasn’t their favourite character. With the Walking Dead, there is no life assurance for any character except for maybe Rick. 

That all ended on Sunday when the premiere of the new season 7 hit the television screen on FX. The first reaction to the bloody and gory start was somewhat stalled by showrunner Scott M. Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman.

Many people are still split about what impact the first episode made on the audience and the long awaited answer. Many people have agreed that the show seemed to have lost some of its edge in season 6.

Both Gimple and Kirkman have been selling the season 7 premiere as the start of the new direction that the show will be taking from here on. 

So the premiere episode, expertly shot, delivered the answer in three parts, rather two halves of the story. The first in speculation when Negan drags off Rick into his RV and tests him.

You want to see the episode to find out how Negan breaks Rick by testing him, torturing him, hurting him and putting his life in danger. in his reverie, Rick remembers the events of the past nights and through his perspective, we finally find out who Negan actually killed.

The first one to go is Abraham. Killing him gives Negan some kind of high and causes Daryl to burst out at him. Daryl’s burst out cost the group as Negan turns to fan favourite Glenn and he is next to face the brutal execution. Both Rosita and Maggie are horrified. 

As Rick returns to present consciousness, Negan saves him and takes him back. He gathers the whole group and put Rick to one final horrifying test. It involves blood, gore and a love of a father.

We did not know whether to puke or cry. However, it finally achieves the results Negan is looking for and it relieves the group from any torture in the near future.

The group is given orders to collect supplies for the Saviours and provided a truck. Left with Abraham and Glenn’s dead bodies, the group is left in tatters and in desperate need to gain strength. One thing Rick makes clear is that they have to wait as they are in no position to do anything presently.
