[Warning: spoilers ahead.]
With a barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat and a low, sinister, almost seductive voice, we finally have the arrival that most die-hard fans of AMC's The Walking Dead have been waiting for all season, announced by two of the most highly anticipated words in the show's history: "I'm Negan."
Unfortunately, we won't exactly be getting Negan until next week's final episode of the sixth season, titled "Last Day on Earth," in which the entire maelstrom of bad decision-making, out-of-character antics, and more or less Daryl getting the Glenn cliff-hanger treatment all over again from episode three will somehow hopefully be righted — as well as something can be righted in the Walking Dead universe, in any case.
Whatever feelings the penultimate episode of this season's Walking Dead left you with, at least there's a consolation prize: AMC has released three different videos in anticipation of next week's season finale.
First off, we have one of the highlights from episode 15, titled "East," in which a mentally anguished Carol, on the lam from the folks of Alexandria and her past, runs into a group of Saviors. Considering everyone knows she survives next week, let's just skip ahead to the clip.
Tying in Carol to the final episode of the season — and with the next video segment, a sneak peek exclusive at a scene from "Last Day on Earth" — we get her at the tail end of a Morgan-centric scene. Morgan, a newly minted pacifist who seems to have rapidly fallen out of favor with most of The Walking Dead's fan base, is seen in this clip coming across a beautiful lone horse as someone — someone who looks like they're carrying Carol's rosary — slowly approaches. And the same hand that holds the rosary in its fist is covered in blood. A wounded Savior, perhaps?
And as for the actual season 6 finale promo — first, here's the official synopsis for "Last Day on Earth":
"Rick and the group must go outside the walls to save one of their own. What they experience on the road will change their lives forever."
