Heading into The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 16, viewers were confident in two things:
We would finally meet Negan; and someone would die.
As the 93-minute finale kick off, Morgan was still chasing down Carol when he came across a sign that read “YOU ARE ALIVE!”
This was followed by the sight of the horse for which the Hilltop dude had claimed to be looking last Sunday.
Good news, right? Not exactly, as fans saw Roman the Savior inching closer to Morgan just as he caught up with an annoyed Carol.
Over in Alexandria, Carol locked Enid in a closet in order to prevent her from going off on the trip to race Maggie to The Hilltop to pay doctor Harlan a reverse house call
Rick and company then headed out on this mission, but not before Gabriel assured the leader that Judith was his “first priority” and that everyone would be safe with him in charge.
On the way to The Hilltop, Rick told Maggie that the doc would “make things better” because “we can do anything” as long as “it’s all of us.”
No sooner had he uttered these words than their RV was halted by a group of Saviors.
Some tense back and forth was surprisingly followed by the Saviors letting our heroes go, while also issuing a warning for them to be "kind to each other," as if this was "your last day on Earth."
Rick and everyone then ran into another bunch of Saviors, while Morgan lost control of Carol and had to go chasing after her on horseback.
We saw her get attacked and shot by Rowan, who simply wanted to watch Carol die before his mean eyes.
But Carol simply laughed at this threat, saying she was going to die anyway. So Rowan shot her again. Just as he was about to finish her off, Morgan appeared … and killed Rowan dead. So much for his rules when Carol’s life was at stake, huh?
The Hilltop denizen then showed up and offered to help.
After seeing the Saviors hang a victim and set fire to a blockade of felled trees, meanwhile, Rick was sounding less confident and the group was forced to retreat.
From there, Eugene volunteered to take the RV in order for the others to escort Maggie to the Hilltop on foot.
It didn’t take long, however, for the Saviors to capture Eugene and surround the survivors again. The lead Savior disarmed the group and had them get on their knees.
It was then time to meet Negan.
The iconic villains proceeded to explain how the new world order meant half of their stuff was his and if they tried to fight it… things would only get worse.
He said he planned to kill one hero as payback for all the Saviors deaths, taunting Carol, telling Maggie she looked terrible and then see Glenn freak out. He then wound up his barbed-wire bat, Lucille, took a swing and… cut to black.
Yup. That was it.
Go watch The Walking Dead online to see if you can guess who Negan killed and then sound off in the Comments below.
What a way to end The Walking Dead Season 6, huh?!?
