October 23rd was slated as the season premiere for The Walking Dead season 7 and fans awaited its return with abated fear, with focus on who was at the receiving end of Neganâ€™s bat Lucille from the cliffhanger of last season. Of course as a fan, you just might have an inkling from the comics as to who was on the receiving end of Lucille. You just might have been saying a prayer or two that the show producers do not tow the path of the comics. I will leave you to find out for yourself what exactly happened. I will however focus on and what it means for its die-hard fans.
The Walking Dead is back and you are in for a treat. The premiere of season 7 last night for me was a thrill. Not only did I get to see my favorite characters on screen, I wasÂ confronted with the hard choices humanity has to take when faced with difficult choices and I always have a burning question on my mind after each episode, could there have been an alternative to settling disputes? As a race, can humans only get better in the future or get worse? A lot of my friends have been wary of my love for this show, probably because they fear for me, I mean who knows, I just might have a dark side to me.
To the show, last nightâ€™s premiere was for me, a mix of having a real bad day and a terrible day. Last night really got to me and I must warn you, itâ€™s graphic. Itâ€™s pure graphic and way too real I recoiled a times. Thatâ€™s how much the show got to me. And it is a credit to the producers who kept most of us spell-bound and some of us angry with where the show left off last season. Throughout the show, Rickâ€™s group have dealt with their fair share of encounters with different groups and have come out most times unscathed and sometimes with a loss, but last nightâ€™s show, left them not just shaken, but also the audience. The grief, the anger, the shock, the resolve, the trepidation, I must say I lived through these emotions and one thing am sure about, I donâ€™t like Negan one bit. I know that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is playing a role but men, he is just so damn good being evil that I just had this unexplained need to crush his face in. Pardon my language. So I canâ€™t wait to see how Rick and the Alexandrians pick themselves and fight this new threat to the only semblance of the society we all are used to.
