The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 3...It Just Can't Be True...

           SPOILERS await, but if your not caught up by now... So there I was minding my own business...having a good time watching The Walking Dead... watching Rick's group basically play zombie run. Things were going great when the seemingly impossible unfolded before my eyes...

After attempting to distract a fast approaching zombie horde, Glenn and Nicholas decide to burn down a nearby building. That plan fails immediately after the two discover the building has already burned to the ground. Which brings us to the episode's main moment...

Glenn and Nicholas end up cornering themselves down an alley. With a horde of zombies blocking their way, the two shoot several zombies and soon after...climb on top of a dumpster. Suffering from heavy guilt and PTSD, Nicholas shoots himself in the head...falling into the horde...taking Glenn down with him. The final shots we see are of Glenn screaming with what look like intestines being ripped from somewhere closely positioned to his body...The show certainly came
across like Glenn didn't make it...my thoughts...

If He Dies:


It would be a monumental fail. Nothing about the course of the show possibly warranted Glenn dying in such an accidental and completely moronic way. You mean to tell me that after having survived the impossible, Glenn's ultimate fate is to fall off a dumpster during the final throws of another (lesser) character's story arc and get eaten by a horde of zombies? Even Game of Thrones is shaking it's head at this nonsense (funny how Jon Snow comes to mind) because it's absolutely clear his death wouldn't make sense at this point. If we're to believe he really died, then the bar has definitely been lowered for the fates of the other characters. Even Tyreese got a whole episode dedicated to his eventual death...and I think we can all agree we like Glenn more.

If He Lives:

It would still be bad on the makers of this show to deliver such a scare. This wasn't a super promising turn of events that greatly improved the caliber of the show. It was the opposite, it was a moment that pissed me off because the show came across as really careless and irresponsible. If Glenn's shows up after several weeks, I hope the show really finds a way to legitimize him going through this in the first place. 

That's all I have to say about that. The rest of the episode was filled with a bunch of  stuff I've mostly forgotten about (Rick's hand). Just bring Glenn back, I don't care how you do it...
