So now that we’ve had a week to digest that shocking and frustrating finale for The Walking Dead Season 6, we’d like to speculate on what that finale and other cues from Season 6 tell us about what’s coming next for Rick Grimes and his crew of survivors. Check out our discussion of the major questions left hanging.
Warning! Major spoilers ahead for Season 6 and from the comics.
Who Did Negan Kill?
Adam: Glenn. This is true to who Negan kills in the comics, and it’s possible he’s finally come to the end of his road.
Annette: Maggie. Remember, Negan doesn’t know Maggie is pregnant, so it wouldn’t be unheard of. This would be the highly emotional pick that could make fans hate Negan even more. And it could send Glenn into a dark tailspin.
What’s Next for Carol?
Brett: Carol will come around and resume her role as the mother hen of the crew. But what is up with her developing a weird conscience this season?
Adam: Carol is the most interesting characters, so don’t count her out.
Annette: Carol will come around, but she needs to deal with the PTSD of her evolution into the killer she’s become.
What Do You Most Want to See Next Season?
Brett: Ezekiel with His White Tiger as well as his settlement known as The Kingdom. We see some members of that community in the finale with those guys dressed in body armor. Also, it’ll be interesting to see Negan and Carl’s interactions, which really make Negan more of a three-dimensional character.
Adam: We need to see a lot more kung-fu fighting from Jesus! He just disappeared at the end of the season, and we know there’s much more to him than what we’ve seen so far.
Annette: Negan’s Saviors army showed its massive size and its cunning in the finale, which we hadn’t really seen from them in the season so far. We’ll also see who else counts Negan as an enemy, and perhaps those groups will team up in a war on this new villain.
