A New Season Of Walking Dead
The new season of The Walking Dead is only a few episodes in. This season is going to be extremely different from previous seasons. The seventh season will be a difficult watch, in my opinion. The group has been fighting zombies for seven years now and are now fighting each other.
Season six ended with the group being held by a mad man, Negan. Season seven opened with millions of people screaming at their televisions for Rick to just kill Negan in October. Now every Sunday when the program is on, people are still screaming at their televisions for Rick or someone to kill Negan.
Negan is a controlling selfish jerk. He uses mind control to get what he wants. He has used fear to control his own people and anyone he comes into contact with. Many people watching cannot stand the way Daryl is being treated by Negan. Daryl pretty much has turned into a slave for Negan.
If this were a real life situation, I see Negan having a short life. There are too many around him that can easily kill him. Many would be liberated and happy. But, how many times have we seen people stay in abusive situations?
In the most recent episode, Rick and the community had to turn over all their guns and medicine. This leaves them no real protection with zombies all around. It was a tough episode to watch. Rick submitted to Negan in front of the community and he had many opportunities to fight back. Michonne lost respect for her lover, Rick.
This season will be a tough watch. It may even cost viewers to tire of the seven-year zombie fight. I do know that if something happens to Daryl, it will definitely cost the program viewers. If you read the comics, you already know what will happen. They seem to be following the comics closely with some minor differences.
Remember viewers, we are all in this together!
