    So this was on The Walking Dead twitter account (the comic).

    It's making the rounds, saying that TWD is trolling. Does this bode well for Glenn getting Lucilled or no? I go back and forth on it.

    It's hilarious since the fakeout was so ill received (and hokey); hard to say whether it means good things for Glenn or not. They could think this is some clever way to pull the wool in front of our eyes.

    I don't think it's a tease of Lucille or anything. I think they were just making light of faking Glenn's death.

    It's just so ballsy to highlight something that everyone thought was stupid. Also the fact that they call it a murder. I'm being hyper-technical but I just don't see a zombie death can be classified as a murder so it's not even clever. Actually, the whole thing kinda annoys me because it's so arrogant. Know that everyone hated it and move on. The thought of them Lucilling Glenn and reveling in this fake death annoys me to no end. Yes, I'm being a baby at the thought of them screwing over Glenn AGAIN.

    Glenn's parts of Thank You and Heads Up really put me off him up until maybe a few days ago. It was just so manipulative and as much as he's my 3rd favorite, I would have been 100% fine w/him dying. That's how mad I was. But they will never let a major character die like that and have no one around to see it.

    Not so much Glenn himself, but the writing. I still love him, and honestly, I read the panels again the other day and started dreading what may/could happen, but I was just super annoyed the whole set up. So it was more Gimple and Co that were irksome.

    I didn't mind heads up, but I didn't like his interaction with Michonne in that one scene where he gets his idea. I thought he was a little cold. He should have told her she mattered. That bothered me. But a lot of TF's interactions bothered me in 6a.

    I agree I love Glenn but he should have stayed dead. That scene was so heartbreaking and would have easily been my third favourite scene in the entire show if he had actually died.

    If they planned to do that, they should have just killed him. Ideally, they wouldn't have pulled that stunt at all.

    I think unless you are seriously unplugged, Glenn's comic s/l is already too well-known for it to be but so shocking. I would absolutely LOVE it if he escaped the odds and made it to the end.

    I want Glenn to be the last man standing just to piss off the comic purists.

    Well, and because they botched his fake death so poorly it straight up isn't fair to Stephen Yeun. Like the dude had to spend a month in hiding to keep the 2 people who hadn't figured out it was a fake-out on their toes, and now he's going to actually be killed off? Fuck that. He deserves better.

    I feel the same. I know he may eventually die, but doesn't have to be this death. Can Glenn just make it into season 7 please!

    I want him to be one of the ones to make it to the end. If he doesn't that's fine, but don't kill him like that. Especially after that stupid fake death.

    I really hope they don't kill Glenn, he is my favorite character and has so much more story left to explore. He is about to become a father and I want to see that happen.
