It’s been a few days since AMC aired the 90-minute Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead – and people are still kind of mad about it. Spoilers ahead, so stop reading right now if you haven’t caught up yet!

We get all the season finale anger, considering not too much happened throughout the episode aside from a lot of RV driving, a random fire, some guys in armor showing up (although this alludes to something bigger for next season), and then a long, drawn-out end scene that concludes in a huge tease of a cliffhanger. In the last ten minutes (approx.), Negan gives a long monologue which includes a game of “Eeney, meenu, miny, moe,” and then swings his bat at Walking Dead character. Except we never find out WHO he swings at.

In fact, people are so annoyed that they have to wait likely around six months to find out who bit the dust at the hands of Lucille, Negan’s barbwire-adorned bat, that there’s an actual Change.org petition you can sign to get AMC to give up the goods.

“I would like AMC to show us who Negan killed in the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead,” reads the description of the petition, started by Change.org user Mason Cade Packer and which already has over 1,500 signatures. “We want this either in an interim episode that borders Season 6 and 7, or a short R-Rated webisode that shows us the death in all it’s bloody glory. Either of these are fine as long as it’s released before May 30th.”

May 30th seems like a really short deadline, considering the showrunners have said they haven’t filmed the scene in question yet – which will supposedly be revealed in the season-seven premiere, according to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan.

“We will pick up directly from what we saw [in the finale],” Morgan told Vulture this past Monday. “Season seven is going to pick up right where we left off. So you’re going to see who’s on the end of that bat.”

We’re not sure how to feel about this petition. On one hand, yes, it’s pretty infuriating to be led on for an entire season only to be forced to wait half a year to find out the fate of whoever got beaten to death. But on the other hand, it’s still just TV, guys, and the writers don’t really owe us anything. This is LOST all over again, but we all survived. LOST gave us enough good things.

Not even the cast members know what’s going on, guys. Supposedly.

Besides, if you’re really into postulating about who died, it might behoove you to check out the supposedly leaked audio file that gives a ton of clues behind who the mystery character is – a character whose death, if it’s true, mirrors that of his/her comic-book death almost exactly. Of course, AMC or some sadistic fan could be throwing us off here, but it’s worth a gander.

Regardless, I think we can all agree on one thing: October can’t come soon enough.
