The Walking Dead (An Open Letter)

Dear lovers and so-called lovers of the Walking Dead:

I know. You’re feeling some type of way about the premiere of Season 7. I know. It’s ok, really it is. We saw this coming. We have to learn to move on. We still have Michonne. We still have Daryl. Isn’t that what matters? We can’t continue to lose our minds over a death we saw coming. Remember the graphic novels? Remember what the writers and artists did? I remember. I remember being shocked at what I saw, but then I got over it. After all, it’s just a graphic novel, something I can easily put down and then pick up again when I’m ready for some blood and gore because that’s what The Walking Dead is. Why do we have to ask ourselves now why is the show violent? That really shouldn’t be a question because remember, the graphic novels are violent. That’s part of the reason why it became a show just like Game of Thrones. It’s a good series, it has a good story, it has a good fan base. We shouldn’t be upset when characters die, no matter how much we like them. It is the zombie apocalypse after all. It’s going to be a rough ride, people. It was always going to be. Breathe deep, zombie fans. Remember the tagline: fighting the dead, fearing the living. So pull up those big boy britches and deal with it.

Sincerely yours,

A Horror Lover
