• Screener chooses the year’s most epic TV moments, including Negan’s introduction in “Last Day on Earth“: “When he arrived it took almost no time at all — if you forgive the break between seasons — before he killed two beloved faces, ushering in a new era of The Walking Dead.”
• ComicBook.com spotlights a Reddit user who calculated each character’s kill count, revealing “who the most deadly character in Season 7 has been.”
• Speaking with Blastr, Chad L. Coleman describes Tyreese as “an everyday man, and there’s no superhero-ness to him. He’s very human and that humanity sits up front…”
• ComicBook.com features a video that sets Negan’s best lines to “a laugh track. You know, for that nice, warm, sitcom feel.”
