The Day Will Come When You Won't Be

By Tammie Parker

AT LAST! Good Lawd this show sure does love these long ass breaks!

Okay, so, OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG and HOLY HELL! WHAT?! So every since AMC released the first minute as a teaser last week I was telling everyone, "It may be more than one that was Lucilled. That what it sounded like they were suggesting anyway". But losing those two was so damn rough man!

Abe hurt me. ๐Ÿ™ He was one of my favorite MotherDick!

I loved his comradery, and boy the words that came out of his mouth LMAO. I loved it. But he sure was an idiot huh? Believing Eugene was the answer to a cure, dumping Rosita, his cock-strong attitude to every damn thing. I was wondering about him though, since he did pretty much volunteered, right. In Episode 16 of Season 6 you saw Abe stick his head up, silently volunteering.

Now Glenn SHOULDN'T be a big surprise.He was anyway. ๐Ÿ™

After all he has escaped death soooo many times (Rick almost takes him out in Atl, the Well, the Governor had him taped down to a chair, then threw a Walker in there to finish him off, the Swine Flu, Nicolas shooting him, then throwing Walkers on him, Nicolas on the dumpster!) PLUS Negan does take out Glenn first. However I was not prepared for such a brutal one on the show. I mean that eyeball man! And BaseballBatDick Negan flipping pausing with that grin ear to ear while Glenn chokes on blood and stutters around to tell Maggie those final words.Glenn saying "I will find you." was heart wrenching. Just like they are simply separated again, and he has a journey to get back to her.

MAN, the brutality and gore! All the blood. The sound of it all. WHY bash them that many times? Well I know why, just to traumatize them even more. Each bash was a hit to their frame of mind.

And then kidnapping Daryl?! With the promise of torture he will go through! Daryl will go through a lot because he one-handedly took out so many of Negan's men. And Negan wants so badly to toy with Daryl and his "I ain't nobody's bitch" attitude. Since Daryl is not in the comics, I am so intrigued as how this will transpire.

Well it certainly IS a new dawn!

And MY GAWD the mind games! Taking Rick off like that. Teasing him to get the Ax while he was driving. Throwing the ax out there with the horde of Walkers and telling him to go get his ax. THEN setting the stage for Rick to take Carl's arm off! Snot flying and tears stinging Rick's eyes as he repeats everything Negan tells him to. Man, oh man, oh man!

All the while Negan's thug composure, body language, and choice of wording will have ya at the edge of your seat, holding your breath, bulging eyes, gripping a pillow tight, just waiting for shit to fly. Or brains for that matter. Oh man this guy right here! He is the baddest! He would have had Garreth crying, and the Governor cringing! I know he's still around in the comics. So loosen up them checks sweethearts. He is here for the long haul and one hell of a war has began. Here's to hoping a tiger takes him out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Until next Monday, stay calm it's only the Zombie Apocalypse.
