New clip from “The Walking Dead” shows us the aftermath of Negan’s attack…and it’s brutal

Fans of the The Walking Dead, prepare for an early dose of blood, horror, and some very angry staring.

TVLine reports that this brand-new clip from season seven of the venerated show brings us right back into a truly disturbing setting (and that’s even before you notice the copious amount of blood on Negan’s preferred weapon.)

Revealed at New York Comic Con, the clip shows us a truly traumatized Rick, blood-spattered and looking more horrified than ever (and dude has seen some stuff, so that’s saying something.) As Negan kneels down to have a cordial chat with him after presumably murdering at least one but maybe several of Rick’s people, Rick can only make this solemn promise:

"I’m going to kill you, he whispers. “Not today. Not tomorrow. But I’m going to kill you.

Negan doesn’t seem particularly concerned, taunting Rick further before comandeering his axe and, in a truly chilling moment, dragging Rick to his nearby trailer.

PS, we are not a fan of evil Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Please give us back sexily scruffy handsome The Good Wife Jeffrey Dean Morgan.


Yeah, that one is much nicer.

Unfortunately for us nice-JDM-preferrers, it looks like this villain is around to stay. TVLine reports that The Walking Dead exec-producer Scott Gimple suggests that the evil Negan is a big bad for the season, saying the challenge for our friends this season is a little different:

“How do they live under the thumb of Negan — and still live? They want to win back their lives."

Buckle up to watch the whole clip, guys, it’s pretty grim:
