Unless you actually live in the Walker world, you’ll have heard about the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead. In what was possibly the most anticipated reveal of 2016, we all tuned in last Sunday night to find out who had a date with Lucille—bad guy Negan’s barbed wire baseball bat, that is. The result left many viewers upset and shocked by its graphic nature (the show even experienced a 27 percent ratings drop in the follow up episode)—so today, we’re asking, did The Walking Dead go too far? Listen in to hear Geek Girl Riot’s Cindy and Erin discuss their thoughts about the season premiere, and just why fans had every right to be outraged by what happened.
Obligatory warning: there be spoilers ahead for season 7.
