Season 7 of The Walking Dead is here and like we did predicted boy did they start it off the new season with a bang! We are still here trying to process what we just witnessed in arguably what might have been the best episode ever. Negan made his presence felt in the first episode of season 7 as we watched him mentally and physically break down our favorite leader Rick.
What we knew was coming in the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead was a death. We didn’t know exactly who, but we knew it was coming. Even though we knew it was coming we still wasn’t prepared for it at all. We dropped a predictions post where we guessed Glenn would be the one to take one for the team. We had no idea Negan would take two survivors away from us when he introduced Abraham’s skull to Lucille.
The response on Twitter was also instantaneous as folks reacted to the loss of a character that we literally followed for seven years. Peep some of the reactions below:
THIS WAS ONLY THE FIRST EPISODE! The fallout wasn’t just on Twitter, Walking Dead fans poured out their emotions on Instagram as well. Hit the gallery below to see the reactions to Glenn and Abraham’s deaths at the hands of Negan and Lucille below:
