Warning: This article contains major spoilers from the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead season 7 premiere was practically a snuff film. We all knew that someone was going to be savagely murdered by Negan, and millions tuned in to watch it happen.
After six months of dreadful suspense, the big reveal was even more brutal than most anticipated, as Negan smashed Abraham Ford’s head in like a pumpkin after Halloween. The barbarity should’ve ended there—but it didn’t.
An emotionally wrecked Daryl Dixon took a swing at Negan, prompting the villain to strike down another member of the group: Glenn Rhee, one of the show’s most-beloved characters, who’s been narrowly escaping death from the very first episode of the show.
Fans were livid at Daryl for being so short-sighted and inadvertently spurring Glenn’s death.
