After a torturous off-season where fans were forced to wait and wonder which character would fall prey to Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s over-the-top turn as the bat-wielding villain Negan, the series returned with a brutal assault on the crowd which further postponed its payoff for until eventually quenching viewers’ bloodlust. Since that time, season 7 was the coming. Over the course of 15 episodes, the series never really delivered that battle to those watching, choosing instead to underline the individual its newfound big bad was — just in case the notion that Negan is a schoolyard bully par excellence proved too subtle following his five-minute tirade from the divisive season 6 finale.
It has been so concerned with satisfying in each nook and cranny between Negan’s coming and Rick’s future war with him and the Saviors it has left the real season with no opportunity to portray the war itself. That means the battle that was promised will probably unfold in year 8 (if audiences are lucky), doing season 7 one long, drawn-out run-up into the particular kind of battle that might have turned the perception of this series around when it needed it the most. In doing this, the coming of Negan can have significance beyond recognizing which celebrities are on the show. It can point to the notion that the world in can be reconstructed, but that it is up to them to prevent becoming the authoritarians that are identical because their adversary that is greaser-styled.
So far as the finale is concerned those kinds of questions are better suited for a different day as war breaks between the survivors along with the Saviors, providing one of the most finales in memory. After a lot of hours of stalling and spinning its wheels, The Walking Dead online finally does what comes naturally: it gradually leads the audience in 1 direction before hitting them with a surprise at the episode’s closing seconds. Since Sasha and Rosita took their road trip to the 22, the move was a favorite of those authors and watch the walking dead online. This time, however, the episode means a wait until the excitement loaded and is locked, which is a little drag. That does forgive the long road needed to get there. Viewers have to sit through another Negan address where he tells her and praises Sasha for being excruciating how much she is respected by him, and if she were a man it would not matter, his feelings are the same.
