This article contains spoilers from The Walking Dead Season 7.
The Season 7 finale of #TheWalkingDead was incredibly action packed, culminating with an awesome battle as the people (and, uh, tiger) of the Kingdom and the Hilltop arrived in the nick of time to save the Alexandrians from Negan's Saviors.
Although the Alexandrians managed to avoid death, have you ever wondered what would have happened had their friends not shown up? Or, more specifically, what would have happened to Carl had Shiva not attacked one of the Saviors while Negan swung Lucille?
YouTube user WackyWeirdo has, and made an animated video using gaming graphics to let us see for ourselves. Check out the gruesome video below:
This genius video highlights what would've happened had Shiva not leapt into action — Carl's head would have splattered all over the ground. Like in the video, Rick would've retaliated immediately, which would've likely resulted in the death of the show's protagonist.
Okay, maybe the Saviors wouldn't have really fired that many bullets — the effect is pretty comical — but WackyWeirdo's basic scenario is probably an accurate counterfactual.

Back in the show's actual continuity, the Alexandrians may have won the battle — courtesy of their friends from the Hilltop and the Kingdom — but the war is far from over, as we saw Negan rallying the troops. As the hit #AMC series heads towards its 100th episode, it's clear the war is only just beginning.
The Walking Dead to AMC will return for an eighth season in October.
