The 1st episode of the last season of ‘The Walking Dead’ It debuted yesterday on AMC and ended with a twist that is driving fans of the attraction crazy.
Entitled ‘Acheron: Part 1‘, the episode starts with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) leading a small group of survivors on a quest to save Alexandra.
On the way, they recruit Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) to guide your way through Washington, DC, on your way to Meridian.
But when a violent storm forces them to hide underground in a subway tunnel filled with zombies, Negan leaves Maggie behind to die before she can kill him first.
Abandoning Maggie in the midst of the zombie horde, Negan flees, transforming into that villain everyone knows… And Maggie probably meets her end.
However, it’s possible that the end of the episode is just a hook to keep the audience curious, so there’s still hope that Negan has momentarily abandoned her in order to seek help and save her.
But this is an answer that will only be answered in ‘Acheron: Part 2‘, which is making fans completely anxious.
Check out the reactions on social media:

“I’m not surprised he abandoned Maggie. Negan will always be Negan, which means he will use any situation to his advantage, including leaving someone behind to die. What a nice guy.”
Not surprised he left Maggie. Negan is going to be Negan which means he’s going to use whatever the situation is for his favor including leaving someone behind to die. Such a great guy.🙄#TWD #TWDFamily #TWDFinalSeason #TWDUniverse #TheWalkingDead pic.twitter.com/glYzqE0BGg
