Preface: this petition is not about changing what's already happened, so much as it's about addressing massive shortcomings as of late so that these mistakes will not be repeated going forward.
At the end of season 6, the showrunners of "The Walking Dead" did their most loyal fans a great disservice by ruining the greatest and most iconic moment of the entire series with a gimmicky "cliffhanger" ending. There are a couple reasons that they may have done this, but it is most likely that they are simply trying to boost ratings of the premiere episode of season 7, or that they have grown too lazy and complicit to actually feed us a complete, well thought out story. At any rate, this is the third time they've used a cliffhanger in one season to try and make up for their own lack of creativity, and the most loyal fans of the show have had enough. Signing this petition means you will pledge to not watch the season 7 premiere of the show unless the showrunners correct their mistake by 1. providing us, the fans, with a concrete ending to the episode online, preferably with footage, and 2. vowing to NEVER force a cliffhanger ending again in a way that will kill the momentum of the show and ruin the viewer's experience for the sake of ratings. We would also like to see Scott M. Gimple's contract dissolved. Enough is enough, the fans care a great deal for this show and refuse to allow the showrunners to continue to run it into the ground. No more cheap gimmicks, AMC.
