Here’s What Happened in the Season Finale of The Walking Dead

2 minute read

If you haven’t yet watched the season six finale of The Walking Dead, now is the time to stop reading.

The 16th episode of The Walking Dead‘s sixth season, “Last Day on Earth,” aired on Sunday and was full of plenty of twists and turns. Here’s what went down in the expanded 90-minute finale:

  • Still off on his own, Morgan tracked down a shaken but mostly uninjured Carol. After unsuccessfully trying to convince her to return to Alexandria with him, he was forced to break his no-kill code to save her from a rogue Savior. The pair then encountered two new — and seemingly friendly — faces, one of which was the man Morgan stopped Rick from shooting in the previous episode.
  • As Rick, Carl, Abraham, Sasha, Eugene and Aaron scrambled to get a feverish Maggie to Hilltop, they ran into a series of roadblocks set up by the Saviors and were finally forced to leave the safety of the RV to set out on foot. However, they quickly walked right into their enemies’ waiting hands, leading to the moment viewers have been waiting for — the introduction of Negan.

  • Negan and his infamous barbwire-covered baseball bat, Lucille, finally made their highly-anticipated first appearance and it was a scene to remember. The big bad guy lined up the entirety of the group — including the hostage Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and Rosita — and explained the new order of the world to the Alexandrians, i.e., he’s the one in charge.
  • The episode ended with Negan playing a terrifying game of “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe” to decide who would be the first to meet Lucille. As he made his choice, the camera angle switched to the perspective of the victim, leaving viewers to wonder who was on the receiving end of the attack as the scene faded out with a series of sickening thuds.
  • The Walking Dead will return in the fall on AMC.
