It was all leading to this final episode of season 6. We knew that Negan was going to make an appearance. This episode begins with Rick and the others being intimidated by the Saviors who are blocking all of their routes. They have no way of getting by them. Carol meets Morgan. She is injured from where she was attacked by the Savior she met. He is not dead, though and he comes back to finish the job on her. He shoots her in the arm and leg and he is going to finish her off when Morgan comes and saves her. He meets a stranger who is a good guy and he is going to help them, so this introduces a new group, maybe?
Rick and his group have to face off with the Saviors who have Daryl and the others held hostage. There is something inevitable about their being captured too. They end up being disarmed and meeting the big man himself, Negan played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He is a leather clad baddie with a baseball bat called Lucille. He is pissed at them for killing his men and he wants retribution.
He tells them that they work for him now and that they will give him half of everything that they have, no matter what. Failure to do so will not be pretty. He tells them that they have to pay for what they have done and he selects one of the group to die. Who is it? We don't know and all we get to see is the screen going black as the victim is beaten to death.
The ending annoyed me as I felt that we should have seen who it was. Waiting for months on end to discover this is just irritating. On a brighter note, I enjoyed the scene with Negan. It bodes well for the future of the series. You have to have a good baddie and he looks good to me. Let's hope that season 7 will be worth waiting for!
