Meanwhile, Rick and the others are struggling to gain entry when a longhaired masked guy approaches them and claims to be fleeing from a gang of walkers.They all make up a story about not having a camp, and after Rick and Daryl introduce themselves, the guy takes off his mask and reveals his name as Paul Rovia, although he informs them his buddies refer to him as Jesus.Although Daryl objects, Rick begins to pose his three recruiting questions, but Jesus immediately flees the scene.Rick and Daryl hear noises coming from behind the gas station and, fearing that walkers are approaching, decide to investigate, only to discover firecrackers exploding in the process.As soon as they realize that Jesus has played a joke on them and has stolen the vehicle’s keys from Rick, they race back to see Jesus driving away in his truck, pulling the vending machine behind him.

Michael and Rick spring to their feet and grab their guns as the speaker, who is later identified as Christ and who is standing at the foot of the bed, informs them that they must speak with him.
I think it’s fantastic what the authors accomplished with Carl, and when he spots her in the woods, he guides her toward us, and it’s this wonderful reminder of what he had to go through in jail with his mother, giving birth to his baby sister, that’s very moving for me.So for him to have the foresight and merely the thought to do that so that he could find her and then vanish into the woods without asking for any acknowledgment, I mean, that is just heroic.Austin Nichols is a musician from the United States.In his article for The Huffington Post, Darryl Woodard stated that family is one of the most persistent themes spoken in The Walking Dead, and Brian Moylan of The Guardian stated that it was the most important subject of the episode.According to Richard Nguyen of The Harvard Crimson, Spencer’s murdering and burying his zombified mother, Deanna, provides him with spiritual renewal and mental closure following the death of his whole family in a zombie outbreak.Michonne explains to him that in the new world, family isn’t defined by genetic ties, but rather by friendships formed through shared experiences.
Carl explains to Michonne that Deanna needed to be killed by someone who cared about her and wanted to see her die.Carl, Michonne, and Rick are moving toward a new iteration of family, one that is stronger because of their shared past.Through this metaphor, they express their affection for one another.

The episode garnered very good feedback.On the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, it has received a 93 percent good rating, with an average score of 7.98 out of 10 for the film.Generally speaking, the critics’ conclusion is that ″The Next World″ is a satisfying follow-up to the surprising mid-season opener, thanks to ″vintage-style action″ and the glimmer of a sizzling new romance.’The Atlantic’s Lenika Cruz and David Sims commend the series’ much-needed time shift, which they say helped to break up the series’ grueling grind of the prior episodes.’A very light and hilarious episode that finished on a shocking note—but one that was not gory, for once,’ describes Sims’ take on the episode.Cruz described it as ″one of the greatest hours″ of the event.
″Every combination this week not only made sense, but it also made a significant contribution to the plot or the characters.″ According to TV.com’s Tim Surette, the episode was ″the funniest episode of The Walking Dead ever,″ and he commended it for its comedy.Matt Fowler, writing for IGN, provided a thoughtful review, stating that ″The Next World″ was the lightest, most joy-filled episode of The Walking Dead since the show’s inception, despite a few moments of danger.In fact, there were some genuine moments of (intended) levity.This episode made it possible for ″No Way Out″ – from last week – to act as the final end point for the whole first Alexandria narrative by skipping over (what is typically) required introspection and wallowing in the aftermath of Rick’s death.According to Den of GeekJohn !’s Saavedra, who complimented the episode, it was ″lighthearted.″ ″Holy mullet, am I going to characterize an episode of The Walking Dead as ″lighthearted?″ ″The Next World″ is, in a way, a sequel to ″The Next World.″ If not The Walking Dead’s version of a light action adventure film with a lot of buddy cop fun, then it’s certainly close to it.
- Robert Kirkman described tonight’s episode as ″nearly like Lethal Weapon″ in a previous interview.
- It’s true, as Daryl points out at the conclusion of ″The Following World,″ in a beautiful Murtaugh-inspired scene, that it’s foolish for him and Rick to keep going out on risky supply runs, only to come to the conclusion that they’re simply going to do it again the next day isn’t it?
- It’s a shame there’s no sax playing in the background as the guys gleefully stroll out the door, but it gave me the impression that both Daryl and Rick had finally accepted their condition, not as the damning thing it had been in previous seasons, but as a task they needed to and would accomplish.
The episode averaged a 6.6 rating among adults 18-49, with a total audience of 13.483 million people.

|List of episodes|
″Last Day on Earth″ is the sixteenth and final episode of AMC’s post-apocalyptic horror television series The Walking Dead, which premiered on April 3, 2016, and is the series’ sixth season finale.Scriptwriters Scott M.Gimple and Matthew Negrete collaborated on the episode, which was directed by Greg Nicotero.This episode sees the first appearance of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, the imposing leader of the Saviors who reigns with tyranny, and, in turn, the first appearance of Steven Ogg as Simon, a top Savior who serves as Negan’s right-hand man, both of whom make their television debuts.
In order to get Maggie (Lauren Cohan) to the Hilltop Colony for medical attention after she experiences pregnancy pain, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the group must travel in their RV through a progressively larger number of Saviors, led by Simon (Steven Ogg), each of whom has increasingly frightening abilities as the film progresses.During this time, Morgan (Lennie James) comes across Carol (Melissa McBride) who has been hurt by a cut on her stomach and tends to her wound.Carol runs while Morgan walks outside to kill a zombie that is making a racket, and Morgan pursues her on horseback once again.Carol is found first by Roman (Stuart Greer), the Savior who survived her attack and shoots her in the right arm and leg, vowing that she will face the same fate as his companions who were killed.Morgan arrives just in time to save her, breaking his pledge by murdering Roman in the process, and comes face to face with two armored men approaching on horseback, one of whom is the mystery survivor from the barn that Morgan had spared from Rick earlier that day.After the strangers offer to aid them, Morgan agrees to arrange for Carol to receive medical attention.
The Saviors are closing in on the gang as night falls and time is running out, so Eugene (Josh McDermitt) decides to act as bait, driving the empty RV by himself to draw them away while the rest of the group carries Maggie to the Hilltop through the woods on foot.But as they rush to get Maggie, who is in critical condition, they come face to face with a big number of Saviors, commanded by Simon, who had been anticipating and waiting for them all to show up.We already have Eugene (Steven Yeun), Michonne (Danai Gurira), and Rosita (Christian Serratos) in custody, as well as a badly injured but still alive Daryl (Christopher Serratos) in custody (Norman Reedus).The entire party is disarmed and made to go on their knees by the attackers.During this time, a guy with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire emerges from the group’s RV, causing them to fall to their knees hopelessly to the ground.
- Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the despotic leader of the Saviors, enters and meets Rick in a threatening way, exposing himself to be Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
- Negan is enraged by Rick’s execution of many of his men, and he proceeds to explain the new world order: the gang now works for him, and half of their supplies are now his property.
- His bat, which he refers to as ″Lucille,″ is introduced to Rick, who learns from him that the entire set-up, including the obstructions, was just to choose ″who gets the honor″ of dying as punishment for their misdeeds.
- When Negan threatens to put Maggie out of her pain, Glenn leaps at him, but is redirected by Dwight and the rest of the group (Austin Amelio).
Lacking a viable option, Negan pretends to have one; he begins a game of ″eenie meenie miny, mooney,″ in which he directs Lucille through the ranks of the survivors while reciting a poem to himself.He ultimately settles on ″it,″ and therefore makes his decision.From the perspective of the victims, Negan is preparing to beat them, instructing his men to chop out Carl’s (Chandler Riggs) other eye and give it to Rick in the event that anybody moves or says anything at all.Negan then swings Lucille into the ground, crushing her head against the ground.
- Despite the cries of the other survivors, Negan proceeds to strike the victim mercilessly over and over again.
The film ″Last Day on Earth″ marks the feature film debut of Negan, who is played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan (left) In spite of mixed reviews for the episode itself, Morgan has garnered praise for his portrayal.The episode also marks the first appearance of Simon, played by Steven Ogg (right), who is a Savior and Negan’s right-hand man.In an announcement made on November 10, 2015, it was revealed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan had been cast as Negan and that he will make his television debut in the season finale.This is the third episode of the sixth season to show in an extended 90-minute time slot, and it marks the beginning of a trend.In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Greg Nicotero said that they shot two versions of Negan’s debut — one for broadcast with more restrained language and another for the Blu-ray release, which includes profanity to match his statement from the comic books.
A mixed response was obtained by critics for the film ″Last Day on Earth.″ In spite of positive reviews for Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s role as Negan on The Walking Dead, the episode received generally negative feedback for its slow pacing and cliffhanger conclusion.The film has received a 44 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with an average rating of 6.55 out of 10 based on 32 reviews.In spite of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s delectably nasty performance as Negan, the meandering ″Last Day on Earth″—and its manipulative cliffhanger ending—makes for a lackluster season finale, according to the reviewers.It received a 7.3 out of 10 rating from IGN’s Matt Fowler, who also made the following observation: ″It went on much too long for what ″Last Day on Earth″ was truly about, and for what was significant about it, in my opinion.That was followed by a failure to provide a satisfying exclamation point.Instead, we were treated to another cliffhanger/fake out.
This is a method that this program is just too fond of utilizing.Negan, on the other hand, was excellently played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.″ This was the lowest grade ever given by the website for the show to date, with Zack Handlen of The A.V.Club giving it a C, praising it for its awkward, drawn-out writing and forced story arcs that failed to maintain an atmosphere of suspense as they moved inevitably toward a fixed ending that everyone knew was coming.In a negative review published by Vox, Emily VanDerWerff stated that the episode was ″the worst episode of the show so far,″ adding that ″the extra-long episode spent its first hour dramatizing all the excitement of your GPS insisting that you take a road you already know is closed, and the last half-hour sank some nicely spooky moments with a too-long monologue and a completely botched cliffhanger.″ Negan’s introduction, on the other hand, received a favorable response from her.Showrunner Scott M.
- Gimple responded to the unfavorable response to the cliffhanger by saying: ″If you approach it from a position of skepticism or with the sense that there is some sort of bad or cynical intent behind it, you will be disappointed.″ It’s going to be difficult to persuade you differently.
- I believe we’ve accomplished enough on the show, and we’ve provided a tale that people have appreciated.
- I believe we deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt.
- I sincerely hope that people will view it and agree that it validates the approach we’ve taken in telling the narrative.
The episode scored a 6.9 rating in the crucial 18-49 demographic, with a total audience of 14.19 million people watching the show.This represented a significant increase over the previous episode, ″East,″ which received a 5.9 rating and a total of 12.38 million viewers, but it was also a significant decrease over the ratings for the season five finale, ″Conquer,″ which was watched by 15.8 million American viewers and received an 8.2 rating among adults 18 to 49.This episode was seen by 18.42 million people in the United States, based on live +3 ratings.

That Walking Dead Death Wasn’t Shocking—But It Was Disappointing
It is possible that this post will include spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 9, Episode 8, ″Evolution.″ We all knew as soon as Aaron and Jesus started assisting a wounded Eugene in fleeing a suspicious throng of walkers that someone was going to die, didn’t we?If only it had been Eugene who had done it.Instead, another character was killed off on Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead.Paul Rovia (Jesus) was stabbed by a member of the undead who turned out to not be so dead after all while battling through a horde of walkers in the first episode of The Walking Dead.With this, it looks that the long-awaited Whisperers plot line has officially begun in earnest, which is a welcome piece of news.You may read some comics spoilers here if you want to know more about what’s going to happen next.) Before we go any further, it’s probably a good idea to point out that Jesus might just manage to pull off an incredible feat of survival.
Following Glenn’s dumpster trick, it’s never a good idea to pronounce a Walking Dead character dead until they’ve been formally laid to rest in the earth.However, at the end of Sunday’s chapter, Jesus seemed to be dead in the water.Since the time leap, he and Aaron had reportedly become closer, leading some fans to speculate that the two of them could be developing feelings for each other.(It did in the comics, at least.) Unfortunately, it appears that this development was only a ruse to heighten the shock value of Jesus’s death.Was the decision to assassinate Jesus, on the other hand, truly unexpected?
- It’s been a long time since television shows have abruptly killed off their L.G.B.T.Q.
- characters, to the point that the practice has earned the phrase ″bury your gays″ as a cliche.
- It was just a few seasons ago that The Walking Dead was accused of falling prey to this cliche when the show abruptly terminated poor Denise.
- Overarchingly, even characters who have been beloved by fans for years have been lost in the shuffle in recent seasons of this program, their distinguishing features being eliminated in favor of fabricated motives, if that they ever make it onto the screen at all.
As a result of the death of Jesus, The Walking Dead has hinted that, while it is interested in re-discovering some fan favorites, it may not be so fortunate with other characters.To be fair to Angela Kang, the newly appointed Walking Dead showrunner, she did inherit a series that was a complete and utter disaster.It is likely unrealistic to assume that this season would resolve all of the issues that have plagued this drama for several seasons.However, for a variety of reasons, the death of Jesus feels like a rerun.
- The manner in which it transpired, in particular, was reminiscent of Glenn Rhee’s Season 6 fake-out death, which occurred just before he was slain in the manner in which fans anticipated him to be killed.
- The first narrative line seems to be introduced—and then prolonged out over numerous episodes—in order to make his ultimate, widely expected Death by Negan appear to have come out of left field more than it actually did.
- Another similar fake-out occurred this time around, with the program implying a relationship between Aaron and Jesus only to murder one of them just one week later—a less rage-inducing version of the previous fake-out.
- However, the disappointment that will very certainly accompany Jesus’ death is the result of a far older and more fundamental issue.
- In the end, The Walking Dead never quite worked out how to bring Jesus’ persona from the comics to the screen; once he fulfilled his original mission by welcoming Rick and the group to the Hilltop, Jesus was relegated to a supporting role on the show.
- In addition, while this show is known for using romantic relationships as a vehicle for character development, Jesus was pretty much asexual until the somewhat forced moment when he came out late in Season 7.

The Walking Dead: It Looks Like These 2 Characters Are About to Become a Couple
There are major spoilers for The Walking Dead in this section!The Walking Dead has been criticized in the past for not including more LGBTQ+ couples on the show, but it appears like the program may include another homosexual pair sooner than you might expect in the near future.During the second episode of season eight, Aaron and his lover, Eric, attack a member of Negan’s organization, also known as the Saviors, who is stationed at one of four outposts.In the beginning, Aaron’s squad appears to have the upper hand, but as the Saviors draw in on them, their good fortune runs out.Eric attempts to help members of his coalition who are critically injured, but he is hit in the stomach by a bullet while doing so.While it is too soon to tell if Eric’s wounds will prove deadly, the nail-biting moment plays out in a way that is uncannily similar to the way Eric is killed in the comic books.
There is just one difference between the two stories: Eric gets shot in his head by one of the Saviors and dies instantaneously as he falls into Aaron’s arms.According to fans who are already rooting for Aaron and Jesus to be together, the rumours around Eric’s potential death on the program has whipped them into a frenzy.We’re aware that it’s too soon.Their heightened excitement, on the other hand, is not without justification.In truth, Aaron and Jesus are now involved in a romantic relationship in the comics.
- Rick invites Jesus to accompany him on a mission trip to Ohio in issue 169, which serves as a confirmation of their friendship.
- Jesus declines the offer, saying that he wishes to remain in Alexandria in order to begin a new life with his friend Aaron.
- ‘When I claimed I had something worth sticking for — it was a certain someone,’ he explains to Rick.
- ″It was a specific someone, in fact.
It’s Aaron on the line.Aaron was the subject of my conversation.He isn’t going to want to go, to be honest.″ Of course, this does not imply that the program will follow the same plot as the movie.There are some big differences between the program and the comics, as follows: The possibility exists that Jesus and Aaron will get together following Eric’s death, especially given the fact that the actor who portrays Jesus has revealed that his character is also gay in the television series.
- We’ll just have to wait and watch how their friendship develops over the course of the next several episodes.
- In the meanwhile, have a look at what fans had to say about the likelihood of Jesus and Aaron getting together in the near future ahead of time.
Why The Walking Dead Chose That Ending for Negan in Season 8 Finale
This interview includes spoilers for The Walking Dead’s Season 8 finale, titled ″Wrath,″ which will air on Sunday, November 18.The Walking Dead opted to conclude Season 8 with kindness triumphing over vengeance, as Rick sliced Negan’s neck while still let him to live during their climatic last fight in Alexandria.When Rick abruptly slits Negan’s neck, it’s likely that readers of Robert Kirkman’s comics won’t be surprised, since the scene is practically identical to how it played out on the page: just when it appears like Negan could be warming around to Rick’s proposed peace deal, Rick slashes his throat.However, unlike in the comic books, Rick begs the Saviors for their surrender in order to preserve Negan’s life, in the television show, Negan’s followers have already surrendered, and Rick decides to rescue his adversary because he knows it is what Carl would’ve wanted – an end to the carnage.Following the episode’s conclusion, showrunner Scott Gimple spoke with a small group of reporters to discuss why he opted to adhere so closely to author Robert Kirkman’s vision for the conclusion of Rick and Negan’s fight.″Simply put, when I read it in the book, it was upsetting to me, and it was something that struck a chord with me….
It was fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed it ″He had to confess it.″Because it was unexpected and the correct thing for Rick and the world – in terms of what Rick wanted and what Carl wanted for him – it was truly the only path ahead for me when I read it.It was the only way forward for Rick and the world.That it’s refreshing to see something like that, to witness a narrative like that in a time when everything appears to be so hostile, so aggressive was the icing on the cake.″ And while Andrew Lincoln agreed, he also joked that while ″it’s nice to have won,″ he was most thrilled with the storyline twist because of what it implies for Rick as a character moving forward in the series.In response to his son’s requests that the program depict a narrative about restraint rather than retribution, he expressed delight, saying, ″I believe this is very much in keeping with the show that we’ve always meant to do.″ ″I believe he is a man who has matured and recognized late in the day that he has to modify his behavior.
- He will get disoriented if he does not resist from murdering him.
- Everything that Deanna told him about the promise of a new civilisation, which he may or may not have believed, has come to fruition as a result of following the desires of his dying son.″ Regarding Rick’s possible actions in Season 9, Lincoln speculated, ″I do believe that when someone loses someone so dear, they may have a fervent desire to ensure that their death is not in vain, and I believe that may be a place that he will go to.″ Photos from The Walking Dead’s ″Wrath″ In the weeks following our discussion, Kirkman and Lincoln discussed Rick’s decision on Talking Dead, and they went into further detail about it there.
- ″Rick has come to a major turning point in his life, the latest in a long line of significant turning points.
- His realization that he needs to choose a new path is represented by this image ″Kirkman went on to explain why he chose to write their showdown in such a dramatic manner in the comic books.
″Every significant confrontation in the history of The Walking Dead has ended with a massive death or the death of someone, and this is him choosing life, turning over a new page, and deciding that there is a better path forward for him.Being able to have that moment where he’s slicing a guy’s throat and saving his life, and having it be so intense, marks time in a very significant manner and demonstrates that the tales from this point on will be extremely different.″ Lincoln was in agreement, ″In the scene where Negan claims the kid didn’t know a darn thing, the youngster recognizes where he’s about to go and what he’s about to become.’If I continue with this and don’t attempt to save this man’s life, then it’s over,’ he thinks in that momentary moment of clarity.In the end, it is a narrative about restraint rather than retribution, and love rather than hatred, which has always been a fundamental theme of our program from the beginning.″ Do you agree with Rick’s choice to intervene and save Negan’s life?
