The Walking Dead' Casting Reports Suggest The Whisperers Are Coming Soon...

The Walking Dead' Casting Reports Suggest The Whisperers Are Coming Soon...


Now that Negan has been thrown in jail, never to torment the likes of Alexandria again, it's time for The Walking Dead's next major villain to arrive and torment the survivors. It looks like the walker skin-wearing creeps known as The Whisperers are on their way to AMC's horror series, potentially arriving next season.

According to TVLine, some casting intel "all but confirms" the arrival of The Whisperers. The report suggests that Season 9 casting has begun for girlfriends Yumiko and Magna, characters from Robert Kirkman's comic series that have a large part to play in The Whisperer War.

If you're not familiar with the source material, Yumiko, Magna, and a few other survivors arrive in Alexandria and are initially greeted as potential enemies. However, after some time they prove themselves as helpful allies, and become important characters in the story.

When The Whisperers first arrive, led by the cold-hearted Alpha, Magna and Yumiko take up arms with the rest of Alexandria to fight them off.

While this report does mean that The Whisperers are likely coming to the show, casting hasn't yet started for Alpha, arguably the most important character in the Whisperer arc in the comics.

Earlier this season, had thechance to speak with Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln about the future of the show, and we asked his thoughts on the potential arrival of Alpha and her Whisperers.

"I don't know if we're going there but I hope we are because I think it's extraordinary," Lincoln said. "Everybody keeps talking about talking about Alpha being the most bad-ass of bad-ass but we'll see. I don't know if we're gonna pick up directly or after a time jump but certainly those scenes could be... The vision that Carl had for the future, this Utopian dream, I don't think it's gonna be a happy journey towards that. There seems to be a lot of descent between the communities in that last act of last night's episode."

Are you excited to see The Whisperers arrive on The Walking Dead? Could Alpha top Negan as the best villain in series history? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

The Walking Dead will return for its ninth season in the fall. Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC.

The Walking Dead’ Says Goodbye to Carl Grimes. .

The Walking Dead’ Says Goodbye to Carl Grimes. .



The Walking Dead’ Says Goodbye to Carl Grimes..

Returning Sunday, February 25, after several weeks away, The Walking Dead devoted most of its 82-minute runtime to saying an extended goodbye to Carl (Chandler Riggs), who survived the zombie apocalypse (not to mention puberty) through eight seasons only to get bitten by a walker while trying to escort a new acquaintance back to Alexandria.

We watched as he took selfies with a sister who will barely remember him, told Michonne she was his "best friend" and made his father promise to try and make peace with the Saviors for a hopeful future





Comic Legends: The Big Lie That Launched The Walking Dead.

Comic Legends: The Big Lie That Launched The Walking Dead.




Robert Kirkman lied to Image about The Walking Dead involving an alien invasion to get them to approve the book.

All through this weekend (and earlier in last week), I’ve been talking about the origins of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. When last we left our heroes, Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, the pair of creators had re-pitched The Walking Dead as a more traditional zombie book after getting rejected as a futuristic zombie story and being told by Jim Valentino not to have the book be a spin-off of Night of the Living Dead. So Kirkman and Moore pitched Image with a more traditional, modern zombie story. THAT pitch was rejected because the opening seemed to boring, so Kirkman revamped it again to come up with the now-famous opening where Rick Grimes gets shot and ends up in a coma and when he wakes up from the coma, the world has been overrun by zombies.

However, even THAT didn’t get the book approved, as again, Image just thought that it sounded too, well, NORMAL. Everyone knows a zombie story, ya know?

So Robert Kirkman took one last crack and came up with a lie about the series that he sold to Image’s then-Marketing Director, Eric Stephenson, telling him,

“Look, you’re right, it does need a hook and that’s why after a few issues I’m gonna reveal that this is actually an alien invasion story. That these zombies are actually put on Earth by aliens and it’ll eventually be revealed that it’s this really cool sci-fi epic involving alien invasion. You know, the seeds will be planted very early on, but it will be a while before it’s actuallt revealed.”

Stephenson liked the idea and told Jim Valentino and they approved the book.

The Walking Dead #1 came out and it was very well-received and everyone liked it.

However, Stephenson then contacted Kirkman to tell him, “Hey, I read the first issue. It’s great. But I didn’t see any hints at this alien ivnasion plot that’s being set up. Is it gonna come in at #2 or #3 or whatever?”

Kirkman then came clean that he was not intending to actually tie aliens into the story (as noted in Wednesday’s Comic Book Legends Revealed) and the first issue had gone so well that they just let Kirkman do his own thing and, well, thank goodness that they did so!!

Thanks to Matt O. for the suggestion, thanks to Jamie Coville for telling me more about this stuff and thanks to Dave Marks at the Zombie Research Society for information about this and the rest of this weekend’s The Walking Dead-related legends!

Negan's Got a Gun In New "Walking Dead" Photo !!!!!

Negan's Got a Gun In New "Walking Dead" Photo !!!!!


In Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's "The Walking Dead" and its wildly successful AMC adaptation, Negan's unquestionable weapon of choice is Lucille, his trusty baseball bat that he keeps wrapped in barbed wire. He has it when we first meet him, and as fans of the show will soon learn, he rarely puts it down.


Sometimes though, a heavier-duty weapon is required, as exhibited in the latest photo to be released by AMC for the series' upcoming seventh season. In it, Negan -- stationed at a window -- appears to have just fired a fully automatic weapon at an unseen attacker (probably someone from Alexandria, or maybe even The Kingdom). And while he may have given Lucille a little break, he does have his other trademark with him -- namely, his ever-present shit-eating grin.

Not much more is revealed by the photo beyond those details, but it could be hinting at the inevitable "All Out War" storyline making its way form the comics to television. The bottom line is, Negan's got a gun (and a bat), and Rick and company should be very afraid.

"Gotham" Enlists Former "Walking Dead" Star as the Mad Hatter !!!!!

"Gotham" Enlists Former "Walking Dead" Star as the Mad Hatter !!!!!

Samuel will bring the Mad Hatter to "Gotham."


"Gotham" will welcome former "Walking Dead" star Benedict Samuel as the Mad Hatter in Season 3.

According to Deadline, this version of Jervis Tetch will be

a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone's guess just how far down the rabbit hole he's willing to go in order to find her.



In the comics, Tetch -- aka the Mad Hatter -- is a scientist that uses his own mind-control control technology to control the minds of his victims. Though based on a children's book character, the character is sometimes portrayed as being severely mentally ill, with an underlying darkness to him. The character, who was co-created by Bill Finger, debuted in 1949's "Batman" #49.

Executive producer John Stephens revealed to CBR that the Mad Hatter would come to "Gotham" in Season 3 as early as May. However, no one had been announced for the role at the time.

In addition to his role as The Wolf in "The Walking Dead," Samuel has appeared in "The Beautiful Lie," "The Walk," "Secret City" and more.

Who Is Negan?

With his leather jacket and massive frame, Negan is a hulking presence in every panel he appears. This is amplified by his dialog, an unnerving stream of profane politeness that would make the characters on Deadwood blush. He is without a doubt the most worthy — and most terrifying — motherf#@%ing foe Rick and crew have ever faced.


Forget about the Governor. Forget about the cannibals at Terminus. You can even forget about the 1,000-strong horde of zombies currently overwhelming Alexandria. Negan is it.

In the comic, he’s the leader of the Saviors, a group that “protects” surrounding communities from the walker hordes by demanding half of each community’s supplies in exchange. In other words, it’s a classic protection racket, held together by a brutal code of honor established by Negan that punishes disobedience with a visit from his fetishistic companion, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire that he affectionately calls Lucille.

Rick crosses paths with Negan after Alexandria comes in contact with the Hilltop, a community under the Saviors’ protection. The resulting power struggle leaves multiple major characters dead and sparks an all-out war between the factions.

Why Are Comic Fans Freaking Out?

Negan is the most compelling character in The Walking Dead universe, and his appearance shakes up the narrative in a way not seen since the original outbreak. He repels you, and yet at the same time you crave to see what he does next, because it’s rarely predictable.

But what really draws you in about Negan is that in retrospect, there’s an internal logic to his behavior — it’s just warped by his outsized id and the knowledge that after the world ends, the one making the rules is the one swinging the biggest, baddest bat. He respects strong-willed people like Rick and Carl even when they’re actively working to destroy him because they conform to his moral code, in the same way he eviscerates a potential double agent because he doesn’t have the “guts” to face his problem head-on.

Oh, and also? He and his men are responsible for the deaths of two major characters who are currently alive on the TV show.

Comic fans have long debated how the showrunners would adapt Negan. His aggressively extreme characteristics seem difficult to bring to non-premium TV — even on the boundary-pushing AMC. Some wondered if Negan’s arc would appear at all, a rumor comic creator Robert Kirkman stoked when he joked that the show’s pacing meant that they’d get to Negan by “somewhere like Season 12.”

Jeffrey Dean Morgan  as Negan .



The Saviors are a large group of antagonistic survivors who were mentioned in "A Larger World" and first appeared in "Something To Fear". The Saviors use a large factory surrounded by a wall of impaled and tied zombies as their base.



The Saviors were, at the beginning, individual survivors. Each member presumably met at the Hilltop Colony. Sometime after the Colony was established, a separate group had formed within the colony, led by a man named Negan, to kill nearby zombies in the area. Judging by their members, the group consisted of the more physically strong and violent members of the Colony.

Soon, Negan's crew had become one of the largest organized survivor groups in the apocalyptic world. They became more and more violent with their ways as they grew in numbers and confidence, and they eventually degraded into committing crimes against other living survivors, which included murder, blackmail, theft, rape, and other various transgressions.

At some point, Negan dubbed his group the Saviors, demanding half of all the rations and supplies from the Hilltop Colony. If the Saviors did not get what they wanted, they gave out deadly messages or severe beatings. In return, the Saviors would kill all zombies surrounding the Hilltop Colony. It is unknown if the Colony had initially resisted the demands, but it is known that they submitted to the Saviors' wishes and followed through with the process for sometime before Rick's group had encountered the Hilltop residents.

The Saviors' main base of operations has shown to be in a heavily fortified factory with a secure fence surrounding it. The only entrance has shown to be surrounded by a horde of chained and impaled undead, supposedly to discourage intruders from attacking, and which forces entries and exits into a small path only big enough for a single vehicle or a few people on-foot without the risk of being eaten by the surrounding undead. Dwight referred to the base as the "Sanctuary". [1]

The Saviors possessed roughly 70 members before the war, a number of them having taken position around various parts of the wasteland watching each survivor community, including several surrounding the Alexandria Safe-Zone. One particular outpost is located within a few miles walking distance from the Alexandria Safe-Zone, with a female member present, revealing the Saviors have women within their ranks. [1][2]

As Rick's group returned to the Alexandria Safe-Zone from the Hilltop Colony, they were confronted by a four-man squad of Saviors, who demanded that they turn over their goods in the name of Negan. As Rick Grimes had never dealt with the Saviors before, he made the decision to oppose their demands and signaled to Andrea to attack. Andrea shot two of the Saviors to their deaths while Michonne leaped out of the van and decapitated another. Rick informed the surviving Savior, who appeared to be the four-man squad's ringleader, to return to Negan with a message: the Saviors no longer need to protect the Hilltop Colony and that, as they demanded the colony, they owed Ricks' group half of their supplies now.

The remaining Savior fled while Rick and the others returned to the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Later, Rick held a meeting and told the residents of the agreement he made with Paul Monroe and Gregory about protecting the colony from the Saviors, referring to them as hot air and a lesser threat, and promised that they would not be much trouble. Rick then asked if anyone disagreed to protect the Hilltop Colony in exchange for food; no one objected and the decision was made. The next day, early in the morning, Abraham Ford and Eugene Porter left for several stores to collect spent bullet casings and tools to make new ammo. Eugene pressed Abraham to make the journey.

However, Eugene was unaware of the Saviors' planned retaliation attack for the deaths of three of their group by the hands of Michonne and Andrea, as Rick had wished to wait until morning to tell them of the new threat. While the two conversed, the topic led to Rosita Espinosa, Abraham's former girlfriend. Abraham told Eugene that he regretted the way he had treated Rosita and left her, and expressed that even though he no longer loved her, that he genuinely hoped Eugene could bring Rosita happiness the way Holly had brought him happiness.

However, Abraham was then abruptly struck with a crossbow arrow through the back of his head and out his eye, effectively killing him. Dwight, a member of the Saviors who fired the arrow, then took a stunned Eugene hostage.

The Saviors used Eugene to lead them to the Alexandria Safe-Zone and demanded that Rick let them in. Rick refused, and a firefight ensued which led to almost a dozen Saviors deaths. Eugene used the commotion to bite Dwight in the crotch and escape death as Dwight and the remaining members retreated. Rick and Andrea chased the Saviors to kill them, but instead of finding any of them, they found Abraham's corpse being gnawed on by a zombie.

After they disposed of the zombie, they brought back Abraham's body for burial in Issue 98. Late in Issue 99, a small group of Saviors spied on the colony with one Savior telling the others to inform Negan that they will attack at dawn.

Rick led a group of Community survivors which included Michonne, Carl, Glenn, Maggie, Sophia, and Hilltop Colony[Hilltop Colony following the death of Abraham. Along the way, they realized they had underestimated the length of time it would take to reach Hilltop, and decided to stop on the roadside for the night. At some point during the night, a group of four Saviors snuck up on their vehicle and captured Rick. His captor ended up being the Savior who Rick had let live earlier in order to deliver a message to Negan. The group of four alerted Negan, along with a bulky group of Saviors in the area, that they had captured Rick.

Negan arrived with his fellow Saviors and proceeded to taunt the group while attempting to mentally break Rick before the others. He proceeded to inform them that they and the Alexandria Safe-Zone were now property of the Saviors. In retribution of the violence towards his men, he told them that one of them would die from his favorite weapon, "Lucille", a baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire.

Before the decision was made of who to kill, Negan threatened to have Carl raped if Rick continued to resist his rule. He also personally threatens to rape Rick before the group as well as point out his discomfort with being considered racist, so he decided to use the "eenie-meenie" method to select his victim, who was eventually revealed to be Glenn.

After Glenn was brutally beaten to death before the others, Rick promised to kill Negan one day. Before leaving, however, Negan beat Rick with his bare hands, telling the group that they were to now answer to the Saviors and that they would be in Alexandria in one week to pick up their "offering". Rick begrudgingly accepted their new rule over the group, only in hopes that it would let them kill Negan and drive off the Saviors in the future, though this was met with anger by the others. To this end, he released their only captive of the attack on the safe-zone, Dwight. However, he prompted Paul to follow behind in hopes that he could find out where it is the Saviors are located.

As Paul carefully followed Dwight back towards the Saviors base, Negan made well on his promise to return to Alexandria for their offering. His Saviors proceeded to interact with the safe-zone while Negan talked with Rick about the lay-out and emasculate him before the group, forcing Rick to give up the majority of Denise's narcotics. As Negan lead his group out of Alexandria, neither he or Rick noticed that Carl had climbed aboard one of his cargo trucks.

Upon Dwight's return to the Saviors base, others had found that he was being followed and captured Paul as a result of this. Having deduced Rick's true intentions, Dwight had Paul brought back to the base only to find he had escaped, thus causing him to "forget" it had ever happened.

The base, once a type of mill or factory, is revealed to be surrounded by a wall of piked zombies, still alive but stuck on poles and spears dug into the ground. Once inside the base, Negan returns as well and the Saviors are shocked to discover that Carl Grimes had in fact stowed away with them. Carl proceeds to kill six saviors using Abraham's automatic rifle, before losing control to it's rapid-burst and running out of ammo. Dwight violently attacks the child, only to be stopped by Negan who has shown further interest in the young child and gives him a small tour of the location.

It is revealed that the Saviors are in fact a cult of sorts, the followers of Negan bowing and chanting to his every word as if he were a Pharaoh in ancient Egypt. The people are divided amongst those closest to Negan, such as guards, henchman and his multiple "wives", as opposed to the common followers who live on a point-system that is intended to replace monetary value in bartering. Carl witnesses to this end, the brutality of Negan's rule as he subjects one of his newer wives' former lover to a ritual punishment, as the wife and lover had reunited in Negan's absence. The man has his face mutilated by a scalding cloth-iron, which Negan presses against his face before pulling away, peeling back the flesh and melted skin which leaves the victim permanently deformed or, "marked with shame".

Sometime after the failed attacks on Alexandria, Negan began personally visiting the Safe-Zone himself along with some of his trusted men. Prior to his arrival though, Negan set up several outposts around the community and positioned scouts outside of their walls before arriving to pick up his demanded supplies.

The members of The Saviors seem to possess great accuracy in their weapon use as they easily were able to shoot the pistols out of the hands of Rick, Holly, Heath, and Nicholas from a distance while taking cover. This is also apparent as a sniper on top of The Sanctuary managed to score two headshot kills, as Rick confronted Negan with his militia, before being killed himself.

All Out War

After Negan manages to escape Alexandria, the Saviors gear up for war against Alexandria and the Hilltop. Their sanctuary is nearly compromised in the attack, as the noise from the battle attracts walkers from around the area and forces them to barricade themselves inside, though Holly is captured in the process. The Saviors and Rick's army engage in several battles, with the Saviors losing outposts and men before they take the fight to Alexandria and inflict severe damage, forcing its inhabitants to retreat to the Hilltop.

Negan instructs the Saviors to begin using infested weapons to ensure their opponents' demises, and they proceed to the endgame at the Hilltop. The two groups fight once more, and during the battle Negan instructs Dwight to hit Rick with an arrow (which he assumes is covered in walker guts), which he does. The Saviors retreat after the militia takes countermeasures against their attacks.

Negan returns to the Hilltop the next day, but his leadership is usurped and Negan incapacitated in a joint effort from Dwight and the militia to end his reign. Negan is handed over to them, and Dwight assumes leadership of the group, effectively ending the war. It is unknown what happened to them after the two-year timeskip.


The Saviors are thriving under Dwight's leadership and are part of the community network. However, it's revealed that at least half of the Saviors are not satisfied with the new policy, and still do not trust Rick.

Something To Fear is the seventeenth volume of Image ComicsThe Walking Dead that includes issues 97-102.

Rick and his group confront the Hilltop Colony's enemy, The Saviors, a group of brutal people led by a man named Negan. However, Rick severely underestimates The Saviors and does not take them seriously as something to be feared until some of his best friends begin dying in brutally savage ways. In the end, Rick is forced into an ultimatum that puts the lives of everyone in Alexandria on the line.

Plot Synopsis

Gabriel Stokes is keeping a church service for survivors outside. After it, Abraham asks Maggie if everything is alright, as he sees her holding her stomach. Maggie convinces him that she is fine.

Abraham goes to see Eugene, who begins planning to create more bullets for everyone. Abraham asks how Rosita is doing. Eugene tells him that she's fine and she doesn't want to see him, implying that they are in a relationship. After Abraham leaves, Rosita tells Eugene that she and him are not together. Eugene admits he was just trying to mess with Abraham.

Meanwhile, Heath is keeping watch for any zombies at the gate. Abraham hopes Rick and others will be back soon. On the way to Alexandria Safe-Zone, Rick and his squad hear a motorcycle from behind their van; a squad of Saviors are following them. An unnamed member tells them to stop their vehicle. After noticing that they aren't from Hilltop, the man claims that they "must give a different tribute" to Negan and demands that they give up all their supplies as opposed to just half. Rick assumes the one talking is Negan; the Savior claims everyone in their group are "Negan". Rick doesn't grant his command and has Michonne and Andrea kill three members of his group, still leaving the one speaking alive. Rick tells him to report back to Negan and tell him to stop harassing the Hilltop Colony. As the savior leaves, Carl says he remembers his father murdered one of the Marauders with a knife before Rick tells him to get back in the van.

Rick and others arrive back at the Safe-Zone with the supplies. Maggie goes to hug Glenn. She reveals to him that she is pregnant.

Rick holds a meeting and tells everyone what happened outside. Rick says they have to put some people in danger in order to defeat the Saviors, but not to make an army. He asks that if anyone objects to the plan, they are free to speak their mind; no one objects to the plan. Later, in Rick's house, Andrea talks to him about starting a relationship and says that she is happy Rick stopped being a coward.

The next morning, Abraham and Eugene leave the Safe-Zone without telling anyone, in order to find some ammunition. They are watched by three unnamed men, assumed to be Saviors.

Abraham tells Eugene that he's noticed that the latter has lost some weight, possibly to attract Rosita. Eugene says she sees it, but doesn't believe that he has a chance with her. Abraham says he just needs to be less unusual than other guys to get her to like him. He also says that although he still has some feelings for Rosita, he just wants her to be happy whether he is with her or not. Then, Dwight, one of the Saviors, shoots an arrow into Abraham's head, killing him. Eugene grabs Abraham's gun, but is taken as a hostage by Dwight and three other Saviors. Dwight says that if Rick and the others had not killed their friends along the way back from the Hilltop, they wouldn't have killed Abraham. One of the saviors tells Dwight that Eugene is not in a situation of power; they still decide to use him as a bargaining chip and has him lead them back to Alexandria.

Meanwhile, Carl goes to Rick's room and finds him along with Andrea, indicating that Rick and Andrea had sex. Carl then says Rick does not have to say anything about sex, Rick replies and says that it would be uncomfortable for both him and Carl. Then the two hear Abraham's machine gun and Rick goes to see why and who was shooting and tells Carl to stay at home. Dwight appears outside the Alexandria gates and demands Rick let him in with a large group of saviors. Rick asks Dwight, what the response was to his message he gave to the savior on the road. Dwight says that Negan did not take kindly to the message and once again demands Rick open the gate or they will kill Eugene. Eugene then bites Dwight in the crotch, injuring him. One of the other Saviors tries to get at Eugene but Rick shoots him and tells Dwight to leave or they will all die. Refusing, Dwight tells the others to attack; one Savior tries to kill Rick's group using the machine gun they took from Abraham but gets shot in the head by Andrea. She then instructs the others to make a line against the wall so they can pick off the Saviors. Dwight then instructs the remaining Saviors to flee to avoid further casualties.

Rick tells Andrea to accompany him to kill Dwight and the Saviors who survived. While Rick and Andrea are pursuing the saviors, they are surprised to see the corpse of Abraham. Rick says that there's "no fucking way they're going to escape." While still pursuing the Saviors, Rick and Andrea get cut off by a group of zombies, Andrea is going to kill them when Rick tells her to save the ammunition. The two then turn back, taking the body of Abraham so it can be buried back at the community. Andrea enlists the help of someone to take the body of Abraham; Glenn and Heath arrive to help her. Holly becomes distraught when she sees Abraham's corpse. Glenn asks Andrea if Abraham needs to be shot in the head so he won't come back as a zombie, but she tells him that the arrow impaled him through the brain and that he will not reanimate. Andrea then asks Rick what they should do, and Rick says, "I don't know."

Sometime later, Glenn, Heath and Nicholas are seen fighting zombies behind their car barrier just outside of the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

Andrea walks into Rick's home and they discuss the situation with The Saviors. Carl walks in on Rick and Andrea hugging, without them knowing, and backs out of the room and smiles.

Glenn is telling Maggie about how he wants to leave the Alexandria Safe-Zone and move to the Hilltop Colony. Sophia exits the kitchen so Glenn and Maggie can discuss the topic alone. Glenn explains that it is much safer for the baby that Maggie is having. Maggie shouts at Glenn but then hugs him. While hugging she explains that she just doesn't know what to do.

The citizens of the Alexandria Safe-Zone mourn for Abraham Ford in the church with a service by Gabriel. Many of the group members are crying. When Rosita tries to talk to Holly, she snaps at Rosita while crying over Abraham's covered body.

Rick, as well many other survivors, are about to leave the Alexandria Safe-Zone and travel to the Hilltop Colony. Rick tells Andrea to stay so that she can watch the Safe-Zone to keep it safe.

After Rick tells Andrea that she has to stay behind and protect the survivors, a band containing Rick, Carl, Michonne, Heath, Glenn, Maggie, and Sophia leave the Safe-Zone and head for the Hilltop Colony. All the while, three saviors are watching from a nearby building and say that they will attack at dawn.

The same three Saviors are complaining about the plan to attack at dawn, wondering why they can't attack now. One of them says that he is going to get a man named Paul, whose group is the farthest away.

The Alexandria Safe-Zone citizens are seen praying for their lives. Spencer reveals to Andrea that he's happy for her and Rick. Eugene is seen mourning over Abraham's grave, while Gabriel is in the church, praying. Aaron and Eric are preparing for the Saviors, making an inventory over the Safe Zone's guns.

On the road, Michonne worries that the group will not make it to the Hilltop Colony in time. Glenn is still optimistic about it. They stop the van for the night.

Michonne and Rick are talking nearby the van. Rick thanks Michonne for everything, and says they'll have to be on the road by dawn. Rick then says goodbye to Glenn, and states that he is happy for him. Rick then begins his shift on keeping guard. A group of Saviors sneak up on the group and subdue Rick by surprise. They line up all the survivors from the van (Rick, Carl, Glenn, Maggie, Sophia, Michonne, and Heath), kneeling them down. Then, Negan appears and tells how he wants revenge for the saviors that the survivors killed. Without an agreement from Rick, Negan makes a deal; Everything that belongs to the Alexandria Safe-Zone, now belongs to The Saviors. He introduces his weapon of choice; Lucille, a baseball bat covered in barbed wire. After a long talk about who he should kill using Lucille, he finally picks his victim at random: Glenn. Maggie panics, as Glenn tries to talk Negan out of it. Negan ignores him and begins to crush Glenn's skull with Lucille. Everyone cries, glaring at Negan. After Negan finishes killing Glenn, Rick states, "I'll kill you. Not today, not tomorrow, but I will kill you." Negan tells them the Saviors will be back in one week to collect half of everything in Alexandria, then turns around and leaves with his men, leaving the survivors with Glenn's body.

Maggie begins hitting Rick, calling him a coward, but stops as Carl points a gun at her and tells her to stop hurting his father. Sophia bites and tackles Carl.

The group continues to the Hilltop, where they tell Paul Monroe and Gregory about what happened. Glenn is buried there, and Maggie and Sophia stay behind as the group and Jesus return to the Alexandria Safe-Zone. They return to find several crashed vehicles and dead bodies outside of the Safe-Zone. Nicholas tells Rick that the Saviors attacked that morning, but none of the Alexandria residents were killed. They killed about a dozen Saviors, and the remaining Saviors retreated without entering the Safe-Zone. Andrea says that it's not even the best part, taking Rick to a house. Inside, she reveals a tied-up Dwight and asks if he could be useful.

Dwight yells to them that they will all be killed when Negan shows up. Andrea punches him in the face and tells him to shut up. Rick stops her and she tells him that he killed Abraham, attempted to kill Eugene and was going to kill them all. She threatens to ruin his other eye if he keeps running his mouth. She wants to talk, to which Rick replies, "Not here."

Andrea and Rick are back at the house when she asks him what the hell that was. He tells her they killed Glenn and she tells him all the more reason to kill the Saviors. He tells Andrea about how they were attacked on the road at about the same time the Alexandria Safe-Zone was attacked. Rick is afraid because of how low on ammo they really are and tells her he is open to suggestions. He doesn't want to piss off Dwight more then they already have.

Paul and Heath are talking about how the Hilltop is a much better community than Alexandria. Jesus apologizes about Glenn and tells him he will try to help them go after Negan.

Rick tells Carl that Jesus is staying in a vacant house. Carl asks if Andrea has Dwight in the infirmary and tells Rick to kill Negan to show him they're "not to be fucked with." Rick replies that he doesn't know and that they are all mad about Glenn. Carl tells Rick they have to do something. That night, Rick and Andrea are talking about Glenn. He tells her that Glenn and Maggie were a symbol of hope to Rick. Rick is blaming himself for the death of Glenn. She yells at him that he can't blame himself and it is not his fault. She says that maybe he would have picked her instead if she had been there. The walls held because of the defenses, not because of Andrea. It is not his fault when someone dies, it is his fault when the rest of them live. He then says that they aren't prepared and that he can't protect anyone from this. He won't let anybody else die because they've come too far and he doesn't think he can fight Negan.

The Next Character To Jump From ‘The Walking Dead’ Comic To The TV Show Appears To Be…

The Next Character To Jump From ‘The Walking Dead’ Comic To The TV Show Appears To Be…


For fans of ‘The Walking Dead’ television show, it’s been a roller-coaster ride over the past few seasons, with the show-runners proving that they are not afraid to deviate from the story lines laid out in the comic books and rivaling George RR Martin in terms of making no character safe from Death’s sweet embrace.  With this much attrition, however, comes the need to refill the cast, and it appears that the “next contestant” on the screen will be coming courtesy of the comic pages.

For you readers familiar with ‘The Walking Dead’ in comic form, the character believed to be joining the TV cast is none other than Ezekiel.  If you’re not reading the comics – well, first off, what is wrong with you?!  Second, allow us to give you some basic background on the character as he exists in the world of print.

Ezekiel is the leader of a settlement called “The Kingdom.”  Unlike Terminus, Woodbury, and The Saviors’ camp, however, Ezekiel governs The Kingdom and its residents fairly and without major amounts of fear and malice.  The Kingdom itself is a high school campus located in Washington, DC, that is well-fortified with a survivor-built wall to help keep walkers away.

In the comics, Ezekiel is an eccentric older gentleman, who likes to be referred to as “The King” (hence “The Kingdom”) and has, of all things, a pet tiger that he’s managed to keep with him since before the zombie outbreak.  In recent interviews, “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman has expressed enthusiasm for the possibility of having a live tiger on set, and writer/showrunner Scott Gimple side-stepped making a flat-out denial about the possibility of a tiger appearing next season… so keep your eyes out for a tiger in Season 7!

walking dead ezekiel

Added to all this is the fact that ‘The Walking Dead’ put out a casting call for a new character, “Augustus,” who matches Ezekiel’s comic-book description: an African-American in his 40s who is needed to bring a mix of “wisdom, oddity, and exuberance.”  Augustus is likely a fake character name being used for cover, as been done many times in recent years with both character names and film titles.

Although no date has been officially released, the seventh season of “The Walking Dead” and its new episodes will likely premiere on AMC in October, as every past season has done.
