Walking Dead's Maggie carrying a bullet with Rick's name on.......
When Negan was introduced into the show he looked like the bad ass villain the show needed, and yet over the last couple of seasons he went from being a truly menacing presence to a complete and utter joke, a weak wimpy dude in a leather jacket - more comic book than the comics that spawned the TV series. It seriously took some fucking up to make a character with a leather jacket and a baseball bat such a pussy.
The news that Norman Reedus will now play the lead is also causing shock across the web with CBR stating - By making Daryl leader, the writers would have to change the very essence of what makes him, well, Daryl. He’s never been one to play by the rules, which is what he’ll have to do if he assumes responsibility of Alexandria and its alliance with the Hilltop and Kingdom. His freedom to do the unconventional, roam free from the group when he desires defines his character. He doesn’t play house, he looks out for his camp as a rogue scouring the outside world, scouting on missions where he just has to worry about his own back, ergo pinning him down like this doesn’t play to his strengths.
I'll be tuning in, though - I'm gonna watch the next season to see where it all goes but when Rick bows out, then I will too. The last season finished the show for me, but the news that there are so many changes coming means I'll have to tune in. The show started with Rick and it should end the same way...let it go out with a bang and not splutter to an end with even more Negan bullshit. The Walking Dead's already become the Limping Dead so let's hope to runs to a fitting climax.
