If AMC wants The Walking Dead to last for years to come, as its producers say, it needs to kill Negan, and quickly. And it needs to learn from the mistakes it made during his seemingly endless tenure on the series.
It's discomfiting to see Walking Dead double down on misery when there's already been so much of it. Game of Thrones employs its fair share of violence and grief, but at least it takes breaks to ride dragons now and again.
As long as he doesn't become as verbose as Negan, the show will continue to be gripping, grim and, yes, shockingly violent. All of that is acceptable if you've come this far with the story. It's the long-windedness that's the most worrying of all.
