Season 7 - Comic Spoilers
Below are HEAVY SPOILERS from the "All Out War" Arc in the Comics, which (if paced right) should take up all of Season 7. This is for everyone who wants to quit the show, but also wants to know what happens next. I'd love to take about potential remixes for the show based on the comic.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Since the finale, I’ve been marathoning the Negan arc in the comics. Here are the key plot points for everyone who wants to give up the show now:
· Rick appears to submit to Negan, but has ulterior motives. Carl attacks the Saviours by himself and Rambos it up, but is thwarted. Negan gets respect for the kid.
· Ezekiel is introduced by Jesus, along with Shiva the tiger, and he has a romantic relationship with Michonne.
· Rick, Jesus and Ezekiel form an alliance. Dwight, revealing that he lost his wife to Negan, vows to help Rick.
· Spencer tries to betray Rick but is killed by Negan. Rick, despite Spencer being a shitbag, tries to take revenge, and is almost killed, but is saved by Carl manning up and taking some control and the Jesus/Ezekiel alliance.
· Rick attacks with his allies, unleashing walkers on Negan. Holly, Abraham’s girlfriend, goes after Negan in revenge for Abe’s death but is captured. Eric dies, Shiva dies, Ezekiel runs away, but Rick wins. Negan flees with Holly, mistaking her for Andrea (as a way to get to Rick). Aaron steels himself. Michonne gives Zeke a pep-talk.
· The Negan Strikes Back – Back at Alexandria, Negan gives Rick back a zombified Holly surprise, who attacks Denise. Heath loses a leg in a grenade explosion, and Denise, despite the bite, operates on him and sacrifices herself. It’s SO badass! Everything in Alexandria catches fire, and Carl gets caught in the perimeter of an explosion. (Yep, in danger again.)
· Negan says stuff like “My dick is so hard right now I could crack steel. I should Wrap it in barbed wire and call it Lucille Two”
· After Glenn’s death, Maggie rallies the Hilltop to help Rick and comes in to save the day. She straight up walks out of an explosion towards Rick whilst Denise is treating Carl’s burns. Rick passes out when he hears Maggie is in control of Hilltop.
· Negan retreats, only to arrive at Eugene’s workshop and take him hostage.Negan uses his “crystal balls” to see the future. We are not getting this character in the show. Eugene stands his ground.
· Jesus ... is gay. He reads to a guy named Alex on a bed together. This will be controversial, if used.
· At Hilltop, Rick talks to the blacksmith about putting a weapon on his stump. The Alexandrians and Kingdomians move to the Hilltop to regroup.
