I’m feelin’ all of that!
How do I get on here for a reaction?
Yes they have finally “KILLED GLEN” They have been thinking of way’s to kill Glen, thing back Glen was about to get his head chopped off and Karl saved the day. Two time Glen was over run by Walker’s with his back to the wall. An now in the Comic Book – Image of Glen’s body on the grown with his head beat completely in “SMACHED” and one eyeball left. Sorry their will be know more Glen in the story’s to come.
TWD producers must live in an alternate universe where “cliffhanger” has a different meaning than here on earth. On this earth, a legit cliffhanger respects & thrills its fans by delivering on its momentum. It takes us to the top of the roller coaster, then plummets to the bottom leaving us breathless for more. It achieves this feat by honoring the story. It seems the alternate universe cliffhanger is one where the roller coaster slowly climbs to the highest point, then slowly backtracks to where it started, leaving fans to wonder what happened. Did the ride break down? Did the operator rip us off to go do crack? But on this earth, the operator blames fans for not appreciating the ride.
There are many fans—sadly, too many—who will ride that roller coaster again and again, never knowing it veered off course from a story and into a game show w/crappy consolation prizes.
Yeah—the majority of fans are pissed off about #616. We were pissed off about #603, too. We feared it would taint the rest of the season, if not all of TWD past & future. We were right. For example, instead of getting the full impact of Deanna’s death, we wondered if it was another trick. When we re-watch 603-607, we notice the absence of Yuen’s name on the credits and groan at what will now forever be a stale gimmick (w/the trivia question: what ridiculously implausible rationalization did Gimple give for this trick?). So it was w/trepidation we watched 616—as nervous to see Glenn’s eyeballs, brains, and skull all smushed to goo as we were to getting tricked again. Twice fooled has, indeed, done the trick. It was a hard one to accomplish, too: turning die-hard, core fans off from TWD.
It doesn’t matter what 701 shows us. Kill Glenn. Kill Daryl. Kill Eugene. Hell—kill them all, and Carl, too. Or, don’t kill anybody. (One comment said Negan bashed a cat that ran in front of him.) It will only prove what we suspect: the producers/AMC got insecure about their $$$. Kill a beloved, long-term, core character and the fans might be too angry to come back & buy stuff. Kill a well-liked, shorter-term, non-core character and fans might feel ripped off & not buy stuff. Oh my. What a dilemma. Well, let me relieve said producers/AMC of that anxiety. I can tell you what a lot of fans WILL do come next October.
We’ll have moved on from the anger of betrayal to ambivalent disinterest. We will probably watch 701 to find out who died, then see what else there is watch. We’ll check in from time to time to see what’s going on, too. But we won’t be scheduling our lives around AMC’s Sunday night schedule. We won’t be buying episodes and/or seasons on Amazon or iTunes. And we won’t be buying DVDs, either—not even to hear Negan say, “Fuckety fuck fuck.”
