A new clip from Robot Chicken's upcoming The Walking Dead special features the return of Glenn. As one might expect from a show set during the zombie apocalypse, TWD has never been shy about killing off characters, whether they be heroes or villains. Still, perhaps no character's demise earned more upset reactions from fans than that of Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun). A regular since the beginning, Glenn was in some ways the moral backbone of Rick's group, especially during times where Rick himself seemed to be losing his way.
Sadly, Glenn met his end in terrifyingly memorable fashion, during TWD's season 7 premiere. As part of an establishing show of force from Negan toward his new subjects, the psychotic Savior leader bashed Glenn's head in with his trusty weapon Lucille. To make matters worse, Glenn's wife Maggie was forced to sit by and watch it happen, with a dying Glenn even managing to relay the garbled message "I'll find you" to her.
This Sunday, The Walking Dead is set to get the full-episode parody treatment from Adult Swim stalwart Robot Chicken, in the form of The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who's Walking. In usual Robot Chicken fashion, no TWD-related subjects are considered too taboo to make fun of, and that very much includes Glenn's unfortunate exit. In a new clip, the Robot Chicken TWD special reunites Glenn with Maggie, if only for long enough to make her miserable. Check it out above.
Entitled "Happy Glenndings," the short sketch above posits a scenario in which Negan's assault on Glenn somehow didn't kill him, and instead only caused him catastrophic levels of brain damage. This leaves Maggie trying to adjust to life with a Glenn that is seemingly forever stuck in his pre-death state, able to only endlessly repeat "I'll find you" at her. The premise is pretty mean-spirited, but really, it's not like Robot Chicken is known for being nice.
On the other hand, Robot Chicken's special is fully endorsed by the makers of TWD, and features just about every notable cast member that one could think of. Just some of the actors stopping by to provide their voices to the special include Yeun, Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Sarah Wayne Callies, and Michael Rooker.
The Robot Chicken Walking Dead special airs Sunday, October 8 at midnight. The Walking Dead season 8 premieres Sunday, October 22 on AMC.
