SPOILER TALK: Who DID Negan Kill During The Season 07 Premiere?


NOTE: Major spoilers below for anyone who hasn’t watched The Walking Dead season 7 premiere yet, but you probably knew that already..



Still here? Okay, if you are; that implies you’ve watched the premiere or you’re okay with [massive] spoilers. Ready? Here goes – Well, Walking Dead fans, we made it through the long and annoying wait from the Season 6 finale to the Season 7 premiere, and while the Negan cliffhanger of the previous season received its fair share of fan backlash, everyone involved with the show kept promising [continuously] that it would all be worth it when the premiere for Season 7 came around.. and indeed, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be” lived up to a lot of the hype, dropping the [now dead] bodies of not just one major [and loved] character, but two. As revealed during Rick‘s mental torture session, Negan used his beloved Lucille to kill both Abraham Ford and Glenn Rhee, and although I would usually say I saw this coming.. I didn’t! So let’s talk about it – with spoilers of course – So, just what in the hell happened on the premiere?

While The Walking Dead TV show will be giving us a toned down Negan in the sense of  how over the top he is/can be, this scaled back version obviously doesn’t affect the brutality of his actions. We had to wait a while to actually get an answer to one of the biggest TV questions of the summer, and Negan got to show off some of his vicious savagery before “the big scene” by testing Rick‘s abilities by sticking him out in the walker filled wild. [Seriously, what a badass] But no amount of physical abuse to Rick could prepare us for how heavy the impact of the big moment, and the episode overall, drew out the appropriate amount of heart pounding pain we [probably] all felt on the way to Abraham dying through getting his skull busted..


As you no doubt felt too, seeing the result was an absolutely chilling scene to behold, almost more so than in the source material, and when Abraham‘s face was shown to be “the death,” I can only imagine so many viewers’ hearts were on the way to leaping out of their chests. But, because of course it did, it only got worse – way worse. In the moments afterward, as Negan completely destroyed all that was recognizable about everything above Abraham‘s neck, Daryl felt the need to be the big man by rising up to deck Negan square in the face. This led to a small speech [from Negan] about the group’s behavior, followed by an abrupt and sudden swing of Lucille down onto Glenn‘s unfortunately unprepared head.. Glenn‘s death was a much more heartbreaking one, as it followed pretty close to the comics, where he got to [at least] call for Maggie before he succumbed to his death. Plus, his eye did that popping out thing which is what happened in the comics, which looked absolutely sickening.

Based on what happened last night, we now have to get used to watching The Walking Dead without the macho and hardcore survivor skills of Abraham, as well as the gentle and moral couth of Glenn. There’s a ton of repercussions to this last episode: Maggie has to give birth to a child who will never know his or her father, and Eugene will be without Abraham and won’t be able to talk about stuff. Unfortunately – or fortunately, depending on how you look at it – the future does not look bright for everyone on this show – besides Negan, I guess. He seems to be okay – but it will all hopefully be extremely exciting either way. It is only just starting, and it started off strong. For the next seven weeks, you can expect The Walking Dead to air on Sunday nights on AMC, and then we’ll have to get used to waiting for more all over again during the typical mid-season halt. To see what else is hitting your TVs but without all of the bulging eyeballs and brain matter, you can always turn to the new season of Gotham or finally start Luke Cage – Hell, I have do continue/start both of those shows too..dammit. I haven’t really been all over watching THE WALKING DEAD lately, but after this premiere, I kind of want to go back and marathon the first six seasons and get a feel for the buildup – or maybe I just miss Glenn..

LADY GAGA to star in American Horror Story: Season 5

Whether you love it, or you hate it, American Horror Story is a show that is everything I could want from a TV show revolved around the horror genre. [even if I’m behind and still haven’t watched “Freak Show” yet..] It’s creepy, the story telling tends to be nothing short of amazing, and the visual effects are always stunning!

However, today’s big news is not only the casting of Gaga, [which is still a shock to me] but also the big reveal of Season 5’s central theme. For those that don’ watch the show, each season of American Horror Story has a different subtitle, [season 1 was just American Horror Story, season 2 was known as “Asylum”, season 3 was “Coven”, and season 4 was “Freak Show”] but, according to Gaga, the subtitle for this year is “Hotel” which, if 100% true; knocks out the fan theory that was scattered over the Internet, which was that Season 5 was going to cover a fallout of chemical warfare. By the title, it seems as if we are instead getting something a little closer to themes from The Shining.

With Lady Gaga officially signed on, this can be considered her first major acting role,  even if she did make small cameos in films such as Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Obviously, at the moment, the details revolving around season 5 are scarce, but chances are that Her role is a slightly bigger one this time around, mainly considering the fact that Jessica Lange is no longer in the show. Be sure to check out Lady Gaga‘s teaser video that she left on Twitter below!

Realistically though, I’m still not sure how I feel about this, I mean – I’m sure Lady Gaga can pull it off, with how weird she is [that’s a compliment!] but I just hope she isn’t replacing Jessica Lange entirely. I understand that Lange is done with the show as whole, but her acting is always on point and she’s clearly the star of the show’s last 4 seasons! How do you feel about Lady Gaga joining American Horror Story? Is it the greatest idea yet? or something that shouldn’t be happening at all? Let me know in a comment or two, or even over on Facebook.
