The Walking Dead showrunner defends the latest controversial cliffhanger

The Walking Dead finale Negan Jeffrey Dean Morgan

If you're planning on watching the season six finale of The Walking Dead but haven't gotten around to it yet, you're going to want to back away slowly as we'll be diving into some pretty heavy spoilers. The latest Walking Dead finale finally introduced us to Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan, one of the comics most iconic villains, and it was well worth the wait. However, not every fan was satisfied with the ending in which Negan played a twisted game of eeny meeny miny moe between several of the main characters in order to decide who would live and who would die. While Negan did end up choosing his sacrifice, we didn't get to see exactly which character's face was introduced to the barbed wire covered bat known as Lucille.

The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple told Entertainment Weekly that they were anticipating some blowback from fans, but he explained his reasoning behind leaving the identity of the now deceased character a secret until next season.

The reasoning behind this was…in many ways what we saw last night was the end of the story of [episode] 16. Where Rick winds up is completely different from where he started in 1 and where he started in 9. I know obviously what it is in 701. And presenting what occurs, to show what happened in full-force, is the beginning of the next story. I do think we’ve done enough on the show and we’ve delivered a story that people have enjoyed and I guess asking people to give us the benefit of the doubt that it is all part of a plan and is all part of a story. And I truly hope that people see 701 and they feel that it justifies the way we decided to tell the story. That is the way that it is in our minds. I know what 701 is and I feel that it delivers on what 616 sets up.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan himself said that while he understood the frustration fans had with how the finale ended, he also believed that it shouldn't be about the death of that person, but rather about Negan being in complete control.

Well, I didn’t know it was going to be a cliffhanger until I watched the show. That’s just how it was done in my world. I don’t know if any of the cast knew exactly how it was going to end, which kind of caused a lot of the uncertainty and emotion that was going on. That said, in talking to Scott and Robert [after the finale], I think that their explanation was that it was the end of the story for that season, and that Rick has lost control and there’s Negan, and Negan has all the control. And I think that’s where they wanted to end the story, and it’s not about the death of that person, and then the death of the person is going to kick off season 7, and season 7 will be a big part of, obviously, who is on the receiving end of Lucille? I understand the fans’ frustration, I get that; that being said … I have to trust these writers and showrunners. They know what they’re doing; a lot of people watch for 6 seasons, and I believe that they’ll be back to see who met Lucille and as the story continues to grow.

As for what we can expect from the seventh season of The Walking Dead, showrunner Scott Gimple didn't say much but he did offer up a few teases.

I’ll tell you this. The world opened up this half season…. In the next half season, the world is going to open up even more. We are going to have a wide variety of locale, of tone, of character. I’m very excited for all the different stories that will be told. And there will be a lot different stories told.…. There’s going to be probably the biggest variety of stories we’ve had yet.… I can say without spoiling anything that things are going to start off very, very, very, dark, because everybody’s where we’re starting. But that isn’t going to be the whole season. It’s not going to be darkness upon darkness upon darkness.

What's your opinion on The Walking Dead finale? Did they make the right choice by not revealing who Negan clobbered?

Negan's introduction was awesome and it looks as though Morgan is going to kill it in the role, but for crying out loud it would of been just as an effective cliff hanger showing who was killed, than not, now we have six months to forget about it entirely instead, thus lessening the shock value.

Also, there's only one way to correct this and that's killing the character whose death would be the most resonant and appropriate for the show. No, it's not Abraham, he's a B list character. He may be funny and interesting, but ultimately his death would not affect us in the way a character like Glenn would. To me, Glenn's story is over. Negan said to Rick, "You thought you were safe, but you are not safe." What better way to demonstrate that than by killing Glenn, the guy whose defied death

Negan said to Rick, "You thought you were safe, but you are not safe." What better way to demonstrate that than by killing Glenn, the guy whose defied death more than anyone on the show, (especially this season)? Daryl isn't done yet because they're going to play up the Dwight revenge angle next season. Michonne and Rick don't have the depth in their relationship that Maggie and Glenn have in theirs, and Rick has already lost his wife and another love interest. Are they really going to have him lose Michonne too? Seems unlikely, especially considering how much of a fan favorite she is. Glenn isn't quite on the level of Michonne or Daryl, but he's still an A list character and the most logical character to die from a narrative standpoint. They've switched every other character death from the comics, so they could also surprise us somewhat by choosing to remain faithful to the source material. In any event, if they fuck around with this and pick somebody with lesser importance than Glenn, they're screwed.

Yes, the show runners are bean counters not artists.

I hope Gimple doesn't honestly believe the drivel he's selling. It's clearly a ratings ploy for next season and that is a shame. I feel bad for the actor who's character dies because delaying that reveal by 6 months will lessen the impact of that incredibly tense scene. The worst part is that the show runners still think they need gimmicks to get people to watch. The show has a rabid fanbase and is beyond the need for cheap tricks. If anything they are going to lose viewers by insulting

I was more annoyed with how boring the episode was. I've watched television shows before, I get how a cliffhanger works. It's just that the first half of the season was meh, and they fucked with us. The last half of the season was ramping up to be amazing until the last episode, which was a snooze fest and then they fucked with us...

Fuck you, Scott Gimple. This isn't about ending a story, otherwise it would have simply ended when Negan appeared. No, you had to go so far as to dick with us in a contrived and gimmicky way that is more about season premiere ratings than it is story. Go suck a mother dick, bitch nuts!

Every season they have an interview to try and hype up the next season saying "Oh things are about to get crazy!" or "You better start worrying about so and so! He might not make it" Get us all hyped up only to see nothing happen or be severely let down. Kind of reminds me of Dragon Ball Z back in the day., It would take episodes and episodes just for something to happen.

I don't care about the cliffhanger or who Negan decided to kill. I just wanted to say how I enjoyed watching the Savior's tactically and mentally dismantle Rick's crew, making them look like defenseless children. In regards to who was killed. It will most likely be the cast member whose agent ask for too much money.

Their reasoning was just a bunch of bullshit. A far more effective cliffhanger would have been to show Negan beating whomever to death. We see the caved in skull of the victim and then we cut to black. That gives everything we need for set up for season 7 while still ending on a cliffhanger. We're introduced to the most gruesome villain yet on the series and we have reason to believe it. We see that Rick has lost control and has possibly met his match. We see that the dynamic of this

We're introduced to the most gruesome villain yet on the series and we have reason to believe it. We see that Rick has lost control and has possibly met his match. We see that the dynamic of this ground has changed. And we're left wondering what will happen next. That's an effective cliffhanger.

I feel that lame excuse provided by Scott Gimple is just covering up the fact that they never decided on who to kill off this season. And with the exception of Rick and Carl, the others are all the chopping block re: contracts. Whomever doesn't want to play ball is the victim. Simple as that.

My prediction for next season though, based on their comments is that Rick and the group start living under Negan's rule. They try to come up with a plan to overthrow Negan with the help of the Hilltop. Meanwhile, Morgan and Carol have gone off with the armoured dudes, whom I believe are part of the Kingdom (run by Ezekiel). Morgan learns of the fate of his crew and turns to Ezekiel for help. The Kingdom comes in to help everyone out. It will be a story that could be told over 10 episodes, but it will take 16 to allow plenty of scenes with people bitching and whining about the same problems they've had since season 1. We get it Glenn - you were a pizza boy before all of this, get over it!

This is why they should have revealed who Negan killed in the finale.

There are good cliffhangers and then there are bad cliffhangers. In this episode which has been deemed probably the worst season finales of all seasons of The Walking Dead we probably have had one of the worst cliffhangers ever. The reason I say this is because the emotional impact has been lost from what was expected to happen. They built up to this moment all through the second half of the season. Now think about it, when they start filming again for season 7, there are going to be all kinds

Now think about it, when they start filming again for season 7, there are going to be all kinds of set photos and crew photos leaked before the first episode is shown. We will find out who he killed without having to see the episode probably a month in advance of the season premiere.

I agree. It will be the same with the whole Glenn dumpster situation from the first half of season 6. The impact was spoiled by the fact that set photos revealed Glenn to be very much alive.

No problem with this...

I have no problem with the way this ended for several reasons. The problem is, we live in a world of binge-watching and instant gratification so no one wants to wait for anything anymore. Many shows have ended on "did they die or not" so this cliff-hanger was well played. It's just like reading a series of novels, like 'The Dark Tower' or even 'Harry Potter'. You don't get all of the answers right away, you have to come back for more. And the entire season was not about Negan. His powerful

His powerful entrance set it up so that the entire series is his from this point until they figure out a way to stop him. I think it would've detracted from the power of Negan if they revealed who he killed because the entire focus of the final moment, and immediately going forward, would've been about that characters death, not the arrival of Negan.

agreed. You see it everywhere. Most recently in BvS where people are confused as to what the dream meant, or who some characters are etc. and its like, calm down, mysteries for another movie.

same thing with The Force Awakens, people complaining that we didnt find out who Rey's father is.

It's not an issue of instant gratification, it's an issue of story. They've done this before, it's old hat. And even then, they've backed themselves into a corner. They can't kill someone major, because they need a proper send-off. And they can't kill someone minor, because that would make the cliffhanger weak.

Also, this whole season was about Negan. He had a great presence at the end, then they took away the power of the villain by not showing his iconic moment with his bat. We should be going into Season 7 wondering how they'll stop this monster for what he did, instead we're going in with the cheap "who is it?" gimmick. You blew it, just own up to it.

Totally agree. I feel like the fans are getting a big middle finger from the writers. I feel so used by that finale. Driving around for an hour 1/2 only to finally get to Neegan and they don't have the balls to deliver on their promise.
That's what got Andrew Lincoln all worked up??

Thought it was awesome, personally. The second half of Season 6 has been really interesting with regards to character development, and they haven't skimped on walker gore either. I thought having Rick's group at an all-time low and completely powerless after being convinced of their own strength was excellently handled. I see no reason to moan about the cliffhanger ending - the writers / showrunners shouldn't have to justify it.

Efff this show

In no way is the cliffhanger a good idea. I mean, what are they prolonging? Comic readers already know what happens so the only suspense for them lies in whether or not the show deviates from the source material. If they don't kill off an important character then the build up won't have been worth it. A six month wait for Negan to kill.. Rosita? Yeah, nah. I'd have more respect for the show runners if they just admitted, "Yeah, we're obviously just doing this to ensure maximum viewership for

Get the sand out of your vaginas!

Whilst I was a bit annoyed about the cliffhanger at first, having thought about it, it makes sense.
That last 15 minutes was harrowing and unsettling, actually witnessing a character I care about being beaten to death would have been very hard to watch.
People can't really act surprised. Cliffhangers are what they do. The only thing that spoiled this episode was the over long Carol and Morgan scenes. Still solid stuff anyway, 8/10.

Expecting all the promos to be Negan, Rick and Coral heavy in the build up to this.

No reaction would be worse but you still care either way and that is what they want, some investment. You still have it and that's what they want. I thought the finale was great and can't wait for the reveal in season 7. To all you haters, see you there.

There is a difference between investment and disinterest. Yes I made two total comments about this here on JoBlo. But I will not be glued to the set for season 7, more likely I may catch it on torrent after the season is over.

I agree this episode was a bore fest, and I predicted at the start of this season they would not reveal Negan until the final episode. Most of the season was just treading water, hell most of the last few seasons have just been the same ole plot over and over again.

I was a hard, hardcore fan of this show. I defended it against haters, even the second season, which I actually loved. This is has been my "show."

This finale ended it. I'm done. I can't watch a show that doesn't respect the viewer. They're playing shitty little carnival games, and I'm tired. I don't want to watch a show that doesn't value my time.

I agree completely. I defended the show, and even loved season two. For me was the whole Glenn thing and trolling us with it just to get a wild response from the net. I found it easier for me to read Sunday night recaps of the show and be done with it. Last night was no different; I read what they did, and just rolled my eyes. I wish they'd make a good story with a finish, so then we can go back and just say how good a season was, and not just, "whoa, that season was all just build up."

The best villian drama build up, the best villain build up, the best villain entrance, - followed by the cheapest ending. Next season's character death will now mean little to nothing because it will be so disconnected from the drama going into it. Really disappointed with the show and I'm a big fan usually.

This show sure knows how to drag things out and milk the shit out of its story lines. This really didn't need to be a longer episode, I thought it dragged and only kept me on knowing that last scene was coming. I feel like the cliffhanger aspect is poor writing, building up the whole episode for a death and not showing it is a cop out on killing one of the more significant players, like Michone or Maggie over Aaron or Sasha. I feel like the marketing will hype up the cliffhanger before next
This show sure knows how to drag things out and milk the shit out of its story lines. This really didn't need to be a longer episode, I thought it dragged and only kept me on knowing that last scene was coming. I feel like the cliffhanger aspect is poor writing, building up the whole episode for a death and not showing it is a cop out on killing one of the more significant players, like Michone or Maggie over Aaron or Sasha. I feel like the marketing will hype up the cliffhanger before next season starts and make the reveal seem more impactful than it really is.

I'm usually ambivalent with cliffhangers, but this was just poorly conceived. So much momentum and suspense built up to..... "O WAIT...... WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHO DIED NEXT SEASON!". Clickbait TV at its essence.

Boring episode and very, VERY drawn out. The only saving grace was the appearance of Negan and his speech. And the fact they left this on a cliffhanger is like one giant middle finger to us fans. The fact that we have to wait another six months to find out who died is just bullshit.

I used to love this show during the first two seasons, but it's been getting relatively worse every season since. If it weren't for Reedus as Daryl, and Morgan as Negan, I would have completely stopped watching

And if you want to know who Negan actually killed listen to the leaked audio of his scene on YouTube. Clear as day who's life ended at the hands of Negan.

Loved Negan and thought the slow impending "We're in deep shit" was great. Rick looked terrified and lost which was awesome BUT that blackout was horseshit. The season could have ended on the same shot the comic ended on, a dead body with a smashed in head. That would have been epic. My worry is one of the minor characters will be dead and it'll end up being less impactful especially after a 6 month wait.
