After a frustrating 202 days, The Walking Dead finally paid off the biggest cliffhanger of the last few years. We now know who Negan killed in the season premiere, and it wasn’t one character, it was two characters. Abraham met the business end of Negan’s baseball bat, Lucille, and then Glenn took one for the team for good measure. It wasn’t exactly unexpected — those two characters also died in the comics — but it was nevertheless devastating.
We’ll have full coverage of the season premiere tomorrow, but for now, here’s how the Internet reacted to Negan’s kills. It’s a mix of horror, disappointment, sadness, shock and indifference. In other words: The Internet!
First, they took Abraham, and Twitter was like:
OH MY SHIT ITS ABRAHAM #TheWalkingDead— TheCraftBoy (@Thecraftboy45) October 24, 2016

Are you fucking kidding. Wow. What a waste of a build up. Abraham. Like really. I WILL NEVER WATCH #TheWalkingDead EVER AGAIN fuck this show— stacy (@shapiro_stacy) October 24, 2016
But there were a lot of tweets like:
Thank god the character wasn't major, Not surprised they didn't go by the comic, So good so far!!! #TheWalkingDead— Davy Migs Locker (@_ItsMigs) October 24, 2016
And then it looked maybe like Daryl might die and the Internet was like:
NO NO NO NO NO #TheWalkingDead— Irene Shulman (@IraShul) October 24, 2016
Whew. But at least Glenn was spared, except …
Ohhh my goodness, Glenn too 😐 #TheWalkingDead— Victor Gallegos II (@TheGallegos_23) October 24, 2016

You guys, I think Negan may have broken Rick real good.
Welcome to a brand new beginning.
