Oh, and it broke a record. Not bad going for the first episode back.
So, The Walking Dead was pretty epic last night, wasn’t it?
Was anyone else seriously unprepared for that?
Turns out, 4.6million people were also not quite ready for all the craziness that went down as the show just set a new Twitter record.
Yep, the premiere of Season 7 was the most tweeted TV episode of 2016 and it’s biggest moment came at around 9.30pm… just after THAT second death.
Hear that? That’s the sound of millions of hearts breaking all over the world.
Thankfully, we can support each other through this incredibly tough and emotional time. Thanks Twitter.

My wife started freaking out across the room and asks me through REAL tears to bring her a slice of cake and hold her #TheWalkingDead— Brett Spadaro (@brettspadaro) October 25, 2016

I get it. #TheWalkingDead is about people and choices.— tricialing (@tricialing) October 25, 2016
And I don't mind seeing the ugly side of people, but this is something else.
I'm going full Negan on the next asshole at work to tell me "you look so tired!". #TheWalkingDead— David Robert (@DavidRobert) October 25, 2016
