Na, I don't think it is Maggie - We still need to understand the problem she started having with the baby that got them all here in the first place. Personally, I'm voting for zombie fetus! Don't know how that would have happened, but.....

Agreed. Daryl or Glen, leaning heavy Daryl, but interesting theory you've got about Glen.

Whatever the reason the actress needed to cut her hair, Maggie is going to have short hair next season. The show needed to establish that she got it cut before the Negan encounter, because otherwise there would be a huge continuity error if she had long hair with Negan and then short hair in the season premiere. That obviously wouldn't be a problem if Negan killed her now.

They said at TD how this and that the finale was. Only it wasn’t. And I am not talking just about copying the worst part of “Lost”. Everything this episode was supposed to be, it wasn’t simply because you knew everything that was supposed to happen, down to the exact words, from the comics. You didn’t even had to read the comics. An internet search for “Negan” pictures and the first page says it all.

Why would one search for such a thing unless they WANTED to be spoiled?

If the baby dies in the womb wouldn't it become a zombie? But then if that were to happen wouldn't it eat it's way out?

I guess it depends on how far along the baby is. Some babies are born with natal teeth.

To see who the actor is that will play the part.
To see if the word negan means something.
To see what that “we are all negan” crap means.
To see why they talk and act the same funny way, like clones and not people.
To see how they got their powers and abilities.
To see what the …. Is all that hype about.
To see why all production of TWD and TD people are so excited about.
Because only a …… would copy paste the comic, like they are all out of ideas.

There is one right thing about negan. He understands that the only way to survive is to manage the survivors and organize them under one leadership. You get numbers or you die, not by zombies but by other people. Finally someone gets it.

Heard that they're going to do a spinoff comic to tell Negan's back story. What's his name is cashing in with the comics and the show.

Maybe we'll be spared that in the show.

You wonder if Negan and his core gang were in some maximum security prison for psychopaths. Or maybe they were a prison gang that grew in power after the chaos of the ZA.

Again, my point stands. If you want to know before it possibly airs, you should expect to be possibly spoiled. I see you are upset about things though, so I'll leave it alone.

Well, Rick and crew have put that point across too, not just Negan.

Don't know, but I did like the "semi" back storuy to The Governor in Season 4, what happened to him after Woodbury and all, leading up to the prison attack.

No, The Dawn of Dead remake did this and the Baby came out chomping just like a normal Zombie but didn't bite its way out.

You could get real dark with that. You could get Great White Shark Dark with that.

Say she has twins, one of the twins dies in the womb, undead fetus eats live fetus, undead fetus is born gnawing on thigh bone. General unrest continues unabated.

OK, now I'm freaking myself out. Erase erase!

I agree. I wish they would get on to what caused the virus, who is responsible, and why vs the various "villains" and cross gang fighting.

It's been stated by the author that they will never get to the root cause of the walker virus. I figure the only chance we have of that would be when the show finally loses popularity and is trying to drum up business for one last season. Kirkman has enough bucks at this point to be able to veto that idea forever though.

If they find a cure for the virus and end the ZA, they might not only end the show but the whole genre, which is getting a little played out anyways.

If you put “ben aflek” on the web doesn’t mean you want to see spoilers for Batman v Superman. That’s ridicules. Yes, I am upset, for many good reasons.


To TWD production:


Use the comic, if you must, don’t copy it.
Don’t use “Lost”.
Don’t say stupid things like “Negan kills one of 10 and gains 9 more followers, that’s why he has so many people.”! Are you really going there? Turn all cast into negans from the next episode? Is really Rick going to say “I am Negan” at season premiere?

I didn't know that. That is a shame because the series is getting a bit long in the tooth already. Wander around, bad guys arrive, kill off beloved cast member, rinse, and repeat. I agree with the previous poster who compared this to Lost toward the end of the series. Still a fan, just getting a bit bored.

1. Why would you adapt something and then not follow it?
2. Negan isn't about killing one out of ten and "gaining nine followers." It's done to keep them in line. How is that hard to understand?

There is a MAJOR difference searching for an actors name and a characters name. You have learned a lesson, don't search for TWD character names unless you want to be spoiled.
