With The Walking Dead Season 6 about to start its own crazy halftime show, spoilers have started to shamble out like, well, you know. Glenn’s “death scene” is now infamous, but it seems the showrunners want to play with our hearts once again for TWD Episode 9, “Dawn of War.” But once you see the first episode of the second half, you’ll be left wondering if Carl is alive. After all, Carl will be left with a rather conspicuous hole where a certain body part used to be. If that doesn’t get you revved, then wait until Norman Reedus fans see Daryl get his hands on that rocket launcher. Who needs a crossbow?
The Walking Dead’s premiere for the midseason is promising to be crazy, but Rick Grimes actor Andrew Lincoln is claiming the Season 6 finale will make you feel like your head’s been bashed.
“I felt sick to my stomach when I read the script,” Lincoln said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “It was the first day in the whole six years of working on The Walking Dead that I was late for work because I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I was so angry and frustrated and I felt sick. And that was just after reading it.”
Maggie actress Lauren Cohan agrees with this assessment.
“[Hearing] the word ‘finale’ gives me a physical reaction because it’s the hardest day on set that I’ve ever had in my life,” says Cohan. “I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It’s one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn’t want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let’s put it that way.”
Right now everyone is predicting The Walking Dead Season 6 finale is when Jeffrey Dean Moran’s Negan will finally show up along with Lucille. While the comic readers know what’s supposed to happen to a certain someone, it is possible another character’s actions during the next several episodes will have Negan wanting revenge.

If it is not blatantly obvious at this point, this article will contain detailed Walking Dead spoilers for Season 6, so please stop reading further unless you do not mind ruining the surprises. But if you do not mind just a little bit of teasing, check out the Walking Dead video below, which shows the first four minutes of the new episode.
Our Walking Dead spoilers pick up where the video leaves you hanging. Negan’s gang leader is aiming his guns at Sasha and Abraham when Daryl Dixon sneaks around and blows up the entire motorcycle gang with a rocket launcher. The rocket killing spree does not end there, since Daryl shows up near the end to save the day by blowing up a tank.
Yes, Daryl is a one man army, as per usual. His actions save many of the others by luring walkers toward the flames like so many flies. This is about the same time frame that Glenn has yet another near-death experience. Glenn and Enid attempt to enter Alexandria in order to rescue Maggie, only to have Glenn needing a rescue of his own.
Glenn lures the walkers away, only to be cornered as Enid and Maggie watch on in horror. Just when you think there’s no dumpster ready to save Glenn’s life, Abraham and Sasha appear out of nowhere to mow the walkers down with machine guns.
Carl’s Eye Popping Moment Of Death
The description of this particular moment comes thanks to the Spoiling Dead Fans. Comic books fans knew someone was going to shoot Carl in the head, but the details are different enough that was no one was 100 percent certain how it’d go down.
“The Rick group is among the walker crowd and change their plan. Instead of going to the armory they attempt to get to the quarry to their vehicles to lure the walkers away, though they leave Judith with Gabriel who heads to the church (Sam refuses to go with him). A little later comes what everybody has been waiting for: Sam gets scared (Carol’s words when she threatened him echo through his head), he blows his cover and the walkers attack him. Jessie won’t let his hand go, screams and is attacked as well. She won’t let Carl go and Rick chops off her arm. Ron wants to shoot Rick (I’m not sure where he got that gun from, but nevermind), and fires. Michonne impales him with the katana, but Ron’s had hit Carl in the eye. A shocked Rick picks Carl up and the remaining three flee from the scene.”
Wait! What? Is Carl dead? As in the comic books, it seems Carl will survive to fight walkers another day while sporting an eye patch. The episode ends with Rick tending to his unconscious son. When Rick says he wants Carl to “live to see this new world,” Carl grabs his hand.
