Norman Reedus has been all over the place promoting The Walking Dead Season 7 as well as his side project, Ride With Norman Reedus. But all of his interviews seem to be pointing to one thing in particular.
When Norman Reedus was asked by IGN if he was looking forward to The Walking Dead fans finally getting the resolution they have been waiting for, he responded enthusiastically with, “Yeah!”
That has to be something of extreme importance to Norman Reedus considering that he has been the face of The Walking Dead and in front of all of the media so much in these short months after Season 6 concluded. It might also be by default that he has been the only one that has been able to do so much discussion with the media about The Walking Dead, considering he is promoting his other show.

As a matter of fact, every time he does an interview for Ride With Norman Reedus, it quickly changes gears and the interview becomes exclusively about The Walking Dead. But Norman does not appear to mind one way or another. His two shows are his major pet projects and he seems to be enthusiastic about keeping them on top of everyone’s minds.
“Yeah! I mean, the truth of it is that it’s very precious to us (The Walking Dead cliffhanger), what we’re doing, and it’s our thing we’re doing out in the woods,” Norman Reedus told IGN. “It would almost be doing it a disservice to us to go around blabbing about it, because we put so much work into it, and it’s so personal to us that we almost don’t want to talk about it too much, because it’s private and personal, and you’ll see it.”

Just as a side note, what fans of The Walking Dead and Norman Reedus need to realize is that even though he is not giving up all of the spoilers right now, Comic-Con in San Diego is coming on July 21 and there could be some major spoilers leaked there, especially if there is a trailer for Season 7 of The Walking Dead. Fans will be scouring that trailer to see who is actually in it, which could narrow the list of victims down and prove that they have a heavy presence in the season. TWD fans will expect for the victim to be revealed first thing in the Season 7 premiere, so any characters that are in the trailer can possibly be eliminated as a victim of Negan’s.
With that said, Norman Reedus still had a few things to say to IGN that were of particular interest.
“It’s well worth the wait, that cliffhanger, I will say that,” Reedus told IGN. “This season that we’re doing now is going to answer every question, and it’s well worth the wait — well worth the wait.”
Now fans need to try and translate that Easter egg of information about The Walking Dead. There is only one burning question that fans have right now and if there are more questions that need to be answered, then that could mean that there are going to be some major surprises in store for fans in the first episode of Season 7 on The Walking Dead.

Just take a minute to digest what Norman Reedus said there. He did not say they were going to answer “the” question. He said they were going to answer “every” question that fans have been waiting for. That could be an indication that Norman Reedus and The Walking Dead are going to fill fans on the back-story of Negan, which could turn him out to be less of a villain and more of a survivor by circumstance. That is very much who Rick Grimes is, after all.
