Sunday night was the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead and there was a MAJOR death that happened in the episode!
Which is expected, cause, ya know, it's a finale.
Well, fans of the show that ALSO follow the brand on Facebook and live on the West Coast were SUPER disappointed when the episode was SPOILED for them!

So, how was it spoiled?
Just MINUTES after the episode aired on the East Coast, their FB page posted a picture of Daryl carrying the MAJOR character that died! Why is this a big deal?
UH IT WASN'T AIRING FOR ANOTHER THREE HOURS ON THE WEST COAST!!!!
The post was deleted and then re-posted to the page after the West Coast airing, but the damage was already done and everyone was spoiled and angry.
But guess what? People still watched it REGARDLESS!
In fact, the ratings set a midseason finale record: the show was up 23% over last year… which means it had 14.8 million viewers and a 9.6 adults 18-49 rating.
Ch-ch-check out the SPOILERY picture (below) and if you feel so inclined, check out the comments on FB, the fans being angry are actually kind of HIGHlarious!
