You've got your Negan cast. I will be disappointed in them if they have Glenn survive just to kill him 8 episodes later. Plus, TV Show Glenn is not as well liked as Comics Glenn. You want to recreate the emotion that Glenn's death in the comics caused? You have Negan beat Daryl to death.

I think they kill Glenn in at the beginning of season 7 to set the pace of the season.

Glenn on the TV is not that popular with fans. You have not seen "If Glenn Dies, We Riot" memes. And Glenn in the comics died after the first couple of seasons had aired. So, killing TV Glenn does not have the same impact killing comic Glenn had. Killing Daryl, that would have the same impact.

But killing Daryl with Lucille, I hope this happens, this will bring in all those feels and butthurt.

Who is more popular with fans than Glenn in the comics at that point? Maybe Michonne. Maybe. But in issue 100, Michonne had not had many humanizing stories, and very little was known of her history, most of it revealed post issue 100. And since we are 49 issues since then, it is hard to compare. Even Andrea was less popular with the fans, but, she got an * because
she was basically Rick's wife at that point, and considered a Grimes


But, this is from the creators, in the backs of the comic itself, and they would know which of their characters were popular. In fact, his popularity bought him 25 issues, as he was written to die in 75, but changed because of popularity. TV Show Glenn is not that popular.
Well, they have definitely introduced the Saviors to the television series. And with Jeffrey Dean Morgan on board as Negan, looks like season 6 finale will bring him on the show. I was hoping to get one more season of the Alexandria stories before jumping into the Saviors. I wanted to get an extended bit of the Hilltop Community. 10 episodes to get there is going to feel rushed.
So who's voice was that on the walkie as the show ended last night?

Man, it better not be Glenn. It sounded like Rick to me though.

But, listening to is a second time last night (just one word), I think it is Glenn. It sounded like him.

Frown
Well, Glenn is alive. Shit has gone sideways. The wall has a bit of a hole in it. And Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham are on their way back to kick some walker ass. I bet we have some deaths next week, but, not sure if anyone important.
Carl's gonna get his eye shot out.

Now my wife seems to think that the one teen is going to shoot Rick because he's mad at him for killing his father. I said, "woman, you are crazy, he's going to shoot Carl for stealing his girlfriend." Wife said, "That's stupid, he's going to go for Rick for killing his dad!". "Umm, no dear, he's a teenage boy, he doesn't give to shit about his dad, he only care about getting some. You've never had been a teenage boy, you wouldn't understand."

So we'll see how this goes, but man if that little shit goes for Rick I'm just going to stop predicting this show.

Last night was excellent, damn them for making us wait so long. I am so glad that Glenn did not go out in that way after seeing how easy it was to get into that building.

Ron will be shitting himself very soon. He is definitely going after Carl, but with the wall coming down he will not be shooting Carl. He will be running for is life. Carl is the target over Rick, if Ron gets Carl then it's also payback for Rick killing his dad.

With next week being the mid season finale I don't think Sasha, Daryl, and Abraham will not be getting to Alexandria until next year with that fuel truck & rocket launchers. We still don't know who was on the walkie talkie. I'm thinking they have to side track to find out who that is before going home.

Glenn sleeping under the dumpster happened while Daryl slept in the woods while Abraham and Sasha slept with the walker under glass while Alexandria slept after the Wolves.

Sasha, Daryl, and Abraham driving back to Alexandria would be happening as Glenn and Enid release the balloons as the tower collapses as the wall fails.

So, the people in Alexandria are trying to get inside and be quiet, and are scared, and are calling for help.

In fact, Talking Dead even had that as a blurb about the show, that only one day has passed since the start of 601.

To hotdog, I wonder if they will do that. CGI can get expensive (of course, he could wear a patch, unlike his comic character), which is partly why TV Rick has never lost a hand, and the "found Herschel a prosthetic" between seasons.
His comic character wore sunglasses that served as a patch, until that crazy girl started licking his eye socket.

Would be easily set up in the chaos of the wall falling, and the perfect mid season cliffhanger (I hate mid season finales). Wouldn't need much cgi either, as their makeup dept is quite capable of fashioning a passable hole in his face for all but specific close up shots.

Super lame. I so wanted to tell you I told you so. I really hate mid season finales, the whole concept seems counter intuitive to me, but they could at least have left some sort of cliff hanger.

But as was pointed out, the whole first half of season 6 has covered a 1-2 day period, so I guess they couldn't really move the story forward too far at this point.
