They really dropped the ball, it's such an iconic moment.

To short-change the viewer, make them wait months to find out and all the while the tension they built towards this moment is basically lost and there is a serious risk of it being spoiled.

I haven't even watched it yet but I know what they did at the end and I'm already pretty furious. They just went through this exact same thing with Glenn earlier in the season and they saw how everybody reacted to that. Just a crappy thing to do to your fans.

Oh, it'll almost certainly get spoiled before hand. There's gonna be set pictures from when filming starts for the next season and it'll be pretty easy to spot which character isn't taking part in the filming.

Absolutely and I'll try and avoid all of that stuff, but one wrong click on social media and all is revealed.

So stupid to build the story to that point and then leave the audience with blue balls.

In fairness, I liked the episode to that point and JDM was sensational as Negan.

Yeah it was a great episode, but the ending sucked.

I'm just gonna assume they stayed true to the comics on this one. Gotta give Rick and Co. some real deep-seated motivation for what comes next.

I had read that TWD producers had planned to
"revive" Glenn in a later show, even perhaps the S6 cliffhanger ending but the uproar was so great they brought him back
sooner than planned - and his scenes have seemed out of sync with what else is happening in the storyline.

That seems really unlikely. They would have had the episodes filmed and edited long before there was any uproar about Glenn maybe being dead. That sounds more like someone out there trying to justify the show making a decision they disagreed with.

Not necessarily. Principle shooting would have been done, but pickup shots and editorial changes can be done quite close to an episode's actual air date.

There's also a strong likelihood that it was shot both ways in the first place.

They have the season's story planned out lone before, scripts written, etc. They would have been well into shooting the back half of the season by the time that episode aired. There's no way they would have gone through major re-writes and re-shooting because some fans were upset. This is not a show that's been afraid of killing off well-liked characters, or upsetting the fanbase. If they wanted Glenn dead at mid-season, he would have been dead. If they wanted to leave the question lingering, it would have been left lingering.

Yeah if that were the case we'd have another episode next Sunday with the real season finale.

Like I said, they likely would have shot it both ways during principle shooting and pick up shots and re-edits are always an option.

But you are certainly free to believe what you like.

We're talking about re-writing, re-shooting and re-editing half a season. It's not about what I believe here. The amount of effort and added expenses required to make the theory plausible is beyond what comes close to passing the smell test.

Watching it now... how did the Saviours even know the gang would be trying to get to the Hilltop today?

Morgan leaves Carol unattended, and is then surprised when she takes off? Then he rides off on his horse* in a completely random direction to find her.

*-We're all in agreement that there's no way there'd still be a random horse walking around healthy at this point in the game, right?

edit: Well they explained the horse.

Using Michonne's dreads and Daryl's arrows was a pretty boss move. Good job Saviours.

Man, this guy really doesn't like Carol.

(He probably could have just gone back home to get medical treatment)
