If you’re havin’ TWD withdrawals and are worried ‘bout which popular character is gonna be killed off with the debut of the new season, I feel bad for ya, son. I got ninety-nine problems, but worrying ‘bout which TWD character’s gonna get killed off ain’t one. (Note: I never much cared for the original version of this song, but the Bluegrassy version they used for the remake of FRIGHT NIGHT was catchy and boss.) I see every TWD fan wringing his or her hands over who’d gonna get murdered by Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan and Lucille, his trusty baseball bat. The showrunners have done an excellent job of milking the scenario, or scenarios, plural, for all they are worth. It’s the best such publicity-garnering tease since “Who shot JR?” (Dear Millennials, go look it up.)
I’m not worried about it, though. Not in the slightest. I only watch THE WALKING DEAD for the zombies, you must understand. I don’t care about the human characters, not really. I won’t be upset no matter which one buys the zombie-infested farm. So who do I think is gonna die? I dare not hazard a guess. Whoever it is, it won’t alter things for me, affect me in any way. There will still be zombies aplenty, and for me that’s all that matters. Watch the season 7 New York Comic-Con trailer here.
