Season Four Finale: Main group trapped in a train car.
Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, Rosita, Maggie and Glenn (Bob and Tara)
* Bob dies in Season Five.
* Carol, Tyreese and Judith are separated from the group
Season Six Finale: Main group lined up on their knees.
Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, Rosita, Maggie, Glenn and Aaron
* Aaron is a new character as of Season Five
* Tara is somewhere on a "supply run" in Season Six
* Carol and Morgan are separated from the group
* Judith is with Father Gabriel back at Alexandria
Both season finales had the group running from gunfire that was directed at their feet where it appeared the bad guys were herding them.
I watched the last 15 minutes of Season Six three times (don't judge me) because there was something that grabbed my attention with the group lineup. I even channeled my inner Yvette Nicole Brown and had a piece of paper where I took notes on the episode.
Not sure if this has anything to do with who "meets Lucille" or not but it was a nice subtlety that I noticed.
So here it is:
Negan is creatively picking who is going to be beaten by Lucille by saying eenie, meenie, miney, mo. While he is doing this, he points Lucille in each person's face. Below is how the group is lined up in front of Negan. The numbers after each name are what order they were picked during the "game".
From left to right:
Glenn ~ Rosita (10) ~ Daryl (5, 13) ~ Michonne (4) Abraham (3, 14) ~ Maggie (2, 12) ~ Rick (1) ~ Sasha (6) ~ Aaron (7, 11) ~ Carl (8, 15) ~ Eugene (9)
When you look at the numbers, it starts with Rick (the leader) and follows an order for a few numbers, switches and then follows an order for a bit before it becomes chaotic and then someone gets 'whacked." The End ....
The numbers are each time the camera actually shows a character with Lucille being pointed in his/her face. Glenn is shown but he doesn't have Lucille pointed at him in the shot. The only time he may have Lucille pointed at him is when the camera is pointing at Negan and Lucille. That's when you can see Negan pointing in the direction of Glenn/Rosita.
Like I said, it was something interesting I noticed about the ending. I don't think that it means Glenn is meeting his demise (in the comics Negan kills Glenn). I just found it interesting that he was the only one that wasn't shown with Lucille in his face.
After noticing this, the first two things I thought were, 1) Did Yvette Nicole Brown notice that (The Number One fan)? 2) Did anyone else notice it?
I'm sure when Season Seven premieres in October we are all going to be shocked as to who gets "whacked".
Thank you for reading this fan-girl's ramblings! Enjoy your day!
