If you are a long time fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead and have followed the horror series from the beginning, then you may as well have been awed by the rag-tag characters who continue to survive zombie attacks. All the blood sucking that continues to annoying us yet remaining appealing has seized from being annoying or upsetting.
As time goes by, we have learned to cope up with this. While it always stings when the main group loses their own, nothing got us prepared for the death of two loved characters in the premiership of the Walking Dead Season 7.
Yes, we finally found out who was on the receiving end of Neegan’s trusty barbed-wire bat “Lucille” and the creators pulled no punches, firmly keeping the tradition of “the more beloved the character, the more gruesome the death”, very much alive. But has the show been taken too far?
Before you give out your thoughts on the matter, it is vital to be aware that this is a TV show whose enjoyment comes from horror scenes. This on its own puts a barrier on the possibility of the show’s makers apologizing.
You have to also bear in mind that Greg Nicotero, a creator of the Walking Dead Season 7 has worked in the makeup industry and thus has tons of ideas on how to style the characters.
When your beloved character dies you will without doubt be upset. You remember the death of Morgan’s wife? We all have seen how he struggles to cope up with that emotionally. We have also seen the death of Carol’s zombiefield daughter Sophia. Rick’s wife has also succumbed to gruesome c-section. And what about the unfortunate death of Beth? Or The Governor having to take Hershell’s head?
The above deaths were sad and hard to watch but what happens in season 7 is even more difficult. Was the line crossed?
That may not be the case. You will watch the series premier, become sad and then carry on. The occurrences will have special effect on how the other characters operate as well.
The Walking Dead Season 7 is now in a territory that we can never predict the next happening. Who is going to survive?
