Despite Jeffrey Dean Morgan's deliciously evil turn as Negan, the meandering "Last Day on Earth" -- and its manipulative cliffhanger ending -- make for a disappointing season finale.
This finale is certainly the end of my relationship with this show.
Negan is simply the scariest bad guy yet on The Walking Dead, and a lot of that lies in how charmingly evil he is.
The show doesn't even grant us the catharsis of knowing which character has been killed... It's a gimmick, and if that's what The Walking Dead is going to rely on in its storytelling going forward, it doesn't make me hopeful for the future.
It's disappointing that the writers would risk alienating the fan-base again after the whole did-Glenn-die-or-didn't-he fiasco earlier this season. Unfortunately, it's becoming the new world order on an otherwise great show.
The eventual outcome of the Walking Dead Season 6 finale couldn't help but feel like a cop-out, especially in a season that has been loaded with fake-outs and fan-baiting moments.
Negan, the sinister leader of the Saviors. He did not disappoint. Imbued with a brawny, malevolent charm by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the character, at least in his debut, lived up to the hype in every way but one.
There's no better sign of The Walking Dead's pure desperation to be 'shocking' water cooler fodder than this cop out of an ending.
The finale was an eagerly anticipated culmination of all of it.
The Walking Dead is fundamentally incapable of killing off lead characters anymore, or playing by any kind of reasonable storytelling rules.
It was an unsatisfying ending to say the least, especially after 90 minutes of build-up.
Negan was by far the highlight of the episode, and I look forward to seeing Jeffrey Dean Morgan command the screen when the show returns, but this was a frustrating conclusion.
For the first time in I don't know how many seasons, Rick looked utterly terrified by the end of this episode. It was refreshing to see him vulnerable, but probably caused even more anxiety in viewers.
