We've all been casting our predictions on who might get 'Lucilled' on the end of season 6 of 'The Walking Dead' for nearly 5 months now. And with the show ending on that cliffhanger, we're left without no new food for thoughts on that department, but then again maybe not so.
'Last Day On Earth' offered us some great subtle hints to keep our minds busy, one of which might point to Daryl's demise.
On one particular scene, the Survivors run into their fourth road block, set up by the Saviors, and they witness the 'Last Librarian' guy hang from a bridge. Now, take a closer look at that bridge.
Here's a closer look.
On the pilar directly behind Abraham we see the words "Damage Inc", which makes reference to a Metallica song by the same name, from their album "Master of Puppets". It has a pretty dark intro, and if you know those lyrics, you know they're a bad omen.
"Dealing out the agony within charging hard and no one's gonna give in
Living on your knees, conformity or dying on your feet for honesty
Inbred, our bodies work as one bloody, but never cry submission"
Well, our Survivors are on their knees right now and any death will affect the group as a whole because they are one.
"Blood will follow blood
Dying time is here
A Survivor on that line-up was pretty bloody already before Lucille and Negan are introduced and shed more blood.
"All flee, with fear you run
You'll know just where we come from"
The Survivors faced their most frightening moment on this finale and they knew who they Saviors were - albeit not what they were capable of entirely.
"Know just how to get just what we want
tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets
Never happy ending on these dark sets"
Negan broke Rick's confidence and, for that effect, his and the group's spirit when he kills one of them. The happy ending part? Well, we knew we weren't gonna get it...
Now, if that hasn't terrified you yet, take a look at the rose drawn right below it. Most importantly, to the 'D' beside the rose.
We all know the connection between Daryl - and Carol - with the Cherokee Rose and, although that drawing is of a regular rose, they've added that 'D' just to make sure we got it right. Since Carol is on her way to the Kingdom right now, she's off the hook.
D, the rose and those darkly foreshadowing lyrics are enough to keep Daryl on the most-likely list, at least.
