‘The Walking Dead’: Glenn Won’t Survive Season 6 Finale [Spoilers]


Warning: There are possible Walking Dead spoilers ahead.

As the Walking Dead Season 6 finale approaches, fans are losing their minds anticipating the entrance of the show’s next great villain, Negan. There are numerous theories surrounding the cast, but one has been apparent since the beginning of the season. Glenn Rhee is going to be the one to bite the bullet or possibly the barbed wire bat.

The actor who plays Daryl Dixon, Norman Reedus, recently had some controversial comments about the upcoming finale. He spilled the beans to Entertainment Weekly, saying that this episode of the show is “the most hardcore finale” the cast has ever done.

“And it’s the most hardcore episode we’ve ever shot. I couldn’t speak after I watched it. And, of course, I knew what was happening, and what was going to happen, and who was involved, but I got to tell you, I couldn’t speak for like an hour. And then I just was bombarded with phone calls on my drive home. But that was a rough, rough, rough cut. I will say that it might be the best episode we’ve ever shot of the show.”

That is a very bold statement by Reedus, given the fact that there have been some pretty insane finales the Walking Dead writers has conjured up. The fourth midseason finale was off the charts. The show’s last main villain, The Governor, blew up the group’s prison home with a tank. He also killed the peacekeeper of the group, Hershel, while his two daughters watched in despair. The Governor was seconds away from killing Rick Grimes until Michonne came in to save the day.

Although Negan is supposed to be the greatest villain The Walking Dead has seen yet, he has some pretty big shoes to fill. It will start with the death of a major character. How much worse could it get than killing baby daddy Glenn?

Most fans are guessing that Reedus was so hung up over the finale because he had to see his own character die. Well, what if Reedus was actually upset because he saw a clip of Glenn dying right in front of his wife, who is a mother-to-be? To add to the situation, from the last episode, it seems Maggie Greene is in the beginning stages of a miscarriage.

She is pictured grasping herself in a scene that depicted she was in extreme pain. Although the scene didn’t give anything more away than that, it seems evident that Maggie is bound to have one.

Miscarriages are brought on by many different kinds of issues, but one of the more common causes is extreme stress. It wouldn’t be the most shocking theory that Maggie could lose her baby after watching Glenn get beaten to death with a baseball bat by Negan. This potential scene also fits the bill for Reedus’ reaction about the supposed brutal ending to this season.

Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, has been pretty cruel to the group so far. Nothing is off limits with this guy. He has previously stated that any character can die at any time.

If there’s one thing Kirkman is good at, it’s tricking the viewers. Based off of the most recent episodes, all signs are pointing towards Daryl being the one to check out. In the last aired episode, Daryl left the compound in search of Dwight, which basically means a death sentence for someone in the group.

During the season finale, Kirkman will never let the viewers know who will be Negan’s real target until the actual scene plays out. One of Negan’s key traits from the graphic novel is his unpredictability. In other words, Kirkman is going to make fans think Negan is going to kill Daryl, but Glenn will be his victim instead.

The graphic novel of The Walking Dead has Negan killing Glenn with his infamous baseball bat named “Lucille.” Kirkman doesn’t really follow the exact storyline of the graphic novel, but in many instances he has.

The Walking Dead never lets anything consistently good happen to any character. Rick’s wife was taken away from him. He met Jessie Anderson in Alexandria, and she bit the dust too. Tara and Denise found love in an apocalypse which was also short-lived. Having any sort of consistent happiness on The Walking Dead is equivalent to signing your death warrant.
