The good news: Daryl is alive. Or, he was, anyway…
The Walking Dead Season 6 finale, “Last Day on Earth,” revealed that Daryl Dixon did not die at the hand of his old nemesis Dwight in the penultimate episode of the season.
But then he, Michonne, and Glenn are brought into an episode-ending semi-circle in which the rest of their loved ones — including Rick, Carl, Abraham, Sasha, Maggie, Aaron, and Eugene — were captured by The Saviors and lined up and introduced to The Saviors’ big bad leader, Negan, and his barbed wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille.
And in a terrifying, intense, stressful scene that leaves Rick and his friends shaking with fear and about to visit “Pee Pee Pants City” (as Negan so irreverently puts it), Negan explains that Rick’s group will not continue to resist The Saviors’ demand for half their stuff. Instead, they would begin handing over 50 percent of everything, pronto.
Also, there’s a little matter of punishment. Negan tells the group that one of them is gonna meet the business end of Lucille — over and over again — and, just like in the comics, he begins a game of Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe to choose who will atone for the group’s refusal to play by Negan’s rules.
Again, there’s a little bit of good news: as Negan prepares to kill the “winner” of Eenie, Meenie, he instructs the rest of the group not to say anything. They can blink, they can breathe, they can cry, but they can’t say anything. If they do, he tells his men, Carl’s one eye should be cut out and fed to Rick. So, good news, both Rick and Carl would seem to be safe from Lucille. For now.
As to who did get several Lucille whacks to the head, we don’t know, because just as Negan started swinging, the camera switched to the point of view of the victim, complete with splashing blood and an incredibly sickening noise that sounds like, well, a baseball bat slamming into a melon. Or a human head.
So, tell us, TWD fans … who do you think is on the receiving end of that bat, i.e., who will we be mourning after the Season 7 premiere next fall?
