TV executives never learn and keep pulling this crap. It is sheer arrogance that they think they can continue to get away with this. And the ugly truth that they don’t want to face is they will not for very much longer. When will TV writers and executive wake up and listen to their viewers. A cliffhanger was not needed in Season 6 and the writers know it. I have a strong feeling the cliffhanger idea came from AMC. If this were Season 1 or 2, then the fans can accept it, but given the many cliffhangers in Season 6 and the Glenn's dead crap in episode three, fans have had enough and ratings will be lower in Season 7. Just wait and see.
Did they chicken out on killing Glenn? Are they afraid if they kill a major character it will damage the show? If that's the case, it will be the first time for The Walking Dead, as this show was built on the fact that anyone can die at any time, and it looks like this premise might be ruined now. But this largely depends on who is dead come Season 7.
Why write a cliffhanger only to follow the comics and kill Glenn? Is it to throw all the fans off and make us think it is another character that Negan beats to death. Either way, in my opinion; if Glenn is the one who died come October, then this cliffhanger will be revealed for the ratings stunt it really is.
