SPOILER ALERT: Story contains major plot details from The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere
The Walking Dead has returned with a bloody bang as the victim of bat-wielding bad guy Negan was revealed in the seventh season’s premiere.
The sixth season wrapped up with Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, using a game of “eeny meeny miny moe” to determine his victim, and the episode closed with him swinging his barbed-wire laced bat.
Sunday night’s premiere revealed the victim to be regular character Abraham Ford, played by Michael Cudlitz.
Negan wasn’t finished. He later took his bat to the head of Steven Yeun’s character, Glenn Rhee, matching the devastating, watershed plot point of the graphic novel from which the TV show originates.
The killing of two fan favourites on one of TV’s most popular shows predictably became a trending topic on Twitter.
Emailing my professors about a family death and mourning all day tomorrow #TWD7
After waiting 7 months for #TWD7 I honestly can’t believed they had the balls to drag who Negan killed out for half the episode.
Thank you @WalkingDead_AMC for making me forget about politics and the state of the world for an hour. That was a nice, morbid escape.
One user even thanked Negan for helping cutting down on political chatter on the social media platform.
