With the first half of Season 6 of The Walking Dead coming to an end next Sunday, audiences can expect one hell of a mid-season finale to end what has, so far, been a totally spectacular season. Part of what has made Season 6 such an amazing season so far is the clever timeline they've been working with -- the majority of the events of Season 6a have taken place in about 24 hours. Crazy, right?
Some serious shit has gone down in those 24 hours, and there have been a huge amount of characters to keep track of. So to make things easier, and to ensure we're all properly prepared for next weeks mid-season finale, I've put together a timeline of events to show where everyone started in the premiere episode, right through to where they are now.
Before you get stuck into reading the timeline, it's important to know that Season 6 started approximately 552 days after the initial outbreak of the virus (for more information on how much time has gone by in the series, check out this article over here), so if you're confused why I'm referring to the days as 'Day +552' and 'Day +553,' that's why. I've also stuck to the major events, we could certainly go into more detail, but it'd just become ridiculous!
Day +552: Morning

Alexandria: The Wolves invade Alexandria, killing a number of residents.
