Abraham was showing a defiant proud, attitude to Negan. So if Negan is out to teach a lesson, he's a good choice.

Don't be so sure. TWD typically does not address cliffhangers for two took three episodes. Have you already forgotten how they handled Glenn's "non death"?

I think the "taking it like a champ line" was more about Negan just being Negan than an indication that a stronger character was the one to get hit.

As I said earlier, I wouldn't be surprised if the scene of who got hit and how everyone reacted was already filmed. In the Talking Dead that aired immediately after the finale, someone in the cast said they were out there filming that scene over two nights.

On the Talking Dead and other web stuff the cast specifically said they did not know who was selected because it wasn't filmed yet. Robert Kirkman also confirmed this when he talked about how they had someone in mind.

I wouldn't put it past the show-runners to film the scene in multiple different versions just to throw off fans looking at leaked info from the set. That's what the creators of Twin Peaks did when they resolved the "Who Killed Laura Palmer?" storyline. They shot the scene with two different cast members being revealed as the killer.

I was thinking that but it happens in the beginning of the new season rather than the end. They have to film other eps so they won't be able to keep up the charade.

Almost from the start of filming after Glenn's dumpster dive, he was seen on set, so it was pretty clear he lived.

The show didn't even address it for like three episodes. I'd bet most viewers didn't read the sites you're referring to.
Here at AVS, the discussion and guessing went on up until the episode where Glenn reappeared. It was NOT clear to a lot of people.

Anyway, my point is, don't expect them to reveal who dies for at least an episode or three.

How would that work? They will be back on the crime scene at the beginning of Ep1. I even hpe, they will show the murder scene gain and this time the way it is supposed to be.

It will be interesting to see how far they'll go in terms of what they'll show. Bashing in the heads of zombies is one thing and we're immune to it by now. But doing that not only to a living person but also one we've come to know and like (maybe) is something else.

What would you say the percentage of major plot events followed the comics? Just curious. No details of course.

Man, I had to think about that .. using just major plot points, I'd guess around 70-80% .. however, there are some major differences .. I can name a few that don't matter since it's old info from the past .. nothing here pertains to where we are now .. .. CDC in Atlanta, not in comics, Daryl and Merle did not exist in comics, Lori did not die giving birth, Dale lived much longer, Carl killed Shane much earlier, The Governor did more damage in the comics, Carol is younger and was never an abused wife ..


I could name more, but I'll leave it at that ..

A few of the stars were spotted aiding a car crash victim. Was this a major spoiler?

I get it, I am with you on that. The line “kill 1 out of 10 and get 9 more followers” was used by Gimple and Kirkman at TD. That is the official approach, “kill 1 out of 10 and get 9 more followers”. And I completely disagree with that.

I have said some things about this season and the finale and Gimple and Kirkman.
I don’t take them back, but…..
I just found an interesting theory about Carol by Jahns.
The more I think of it, the more it makes sense, and if it is right, it totally makes this season and the next, a lot more interesting. It will blow your mind.

Getting followers does not mean WILLING followers.

The definition of the word "follower" does not include the willingness or unwillingness of the follower. It is silent on that aspect. The word "slave" could certainly be used when describing an unwilling follower.

that's a nice trailer, probably my favorite WD trailer from any season...I didn't think they would be able to show any footage from the new season as that would give away who Negan killed but they cleverly showed scenes without most of the main characters and focused on Negan, Carol, walkers, Tara, Dwight and newcomers such as King Ezekiel
