When Season 6 of The Walking Dead came to an end, they left everyone not knowing whom Negan decided to kill. He picked one person to kill and the rest will be working for him if he has his way. The cast has been sharing that they had no idea who dies, but now Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, is sharing that he does know who won’t be returning to the show. Cinema Blend shared what Norman had to say recently while on Today. The entire cast has been saying that they had no idea who dies, but Norman Reedus knows what happened and this has everyone wondering why.
Andrew Lincoln said the entire cast was in the dark, but Norman Reedus was on Today to talk about his new movie and ended up discussing the ending. Norman Reedus revealed that he knows the truth and said, “I know what happens and it’s gut-wrenching to be there. All of us had reactions to it… we had crew members crying while we were filming. It’s heavy.” This has everyone wondering if Norman’s character, Daryl, could be the one to go. The person who dies may or may not know that they are out of a job according to executive producer Greg Nicotero. Of course, Reedus didn’t share any details about who it was that won’t survive.
Several of the cast members have talked about how hard this was on them, but still say they don’t know what happens. Andrew Lincoln said he couldn’t sleep and was sick to his stomach after reading it. Lauren Cohan didn’t even want to come to work. Melissa McBride said she was left speechless, but Chandler Riggs went to Twitter to share that he doesn’t know anything. Norman Reedus is singing a different tune and says he does know the truth. So why would he know and nobody else?
It is very possible that Norman Reedus is the only one that knows and everyone else just had a problem with knowing that Negan was going to beat someone with his weapon Lucille. If Norman is the only one that knows, either he got lucky and someone let something slip or his character is the one going down and they let him know his job was over. Reedus will probably stay pretty quiet about the ending after all the talk over just this one sentence he revealed.
Fans everywhere are trying to figure out whom Negan killed, but at this point nobody knows for sure. There is a lot of speculation going on and Norman Reedus just gave everyone another theory to look at now. When Game of Thrones killed off Jon Snow, everyone followed Kit Harington around to find out if he was filming or not. Norman Reedus and the rest of the cast of TWD are going to be watched by everyone to see if they are working on the show or if they could be the one who was killed off at the end of Season 6. It won’t be surprising if someone figures it out before Season 7 starts to air. There is not an actual return date yet, but you can expect it to be back around October.
Why do you think that Norman Reedus is the only cast member to know the truth? Do you think others know it, but just don’t want to reveal it yet? Sound off in the comments section below on your thoughts, and don’t miss The Walking Dead when it returns to AMC.
