The Walking Dead Season 6 finale aired over two weeks ago, but fans are still talking about who Negan’s unlucky victim could be. While fans are dying to know who Negan killed, the cast, including former cast members, seem to be in the loop.
According to Entertainment Weekly, after The Walking Dead Season 6 finale, Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl on the show, tweeted that he still doesn’t know who Negan killed and he filmed that scene six months ago. However, a former cast member is now revealing that the cast may know more than they’re saying.
Actor Tyler James Williams, who played the character of Noah in Season 5, says he knows who Negan killed and what will happen when Season 7 returns in October.
“Yeah, I know,” Williams said, adding that he knew what was going to happen before that scene was even shot. “They were still shooting [Season] 6 [when I found out.] So like, middle of 6.”
Tyler won’t tell which Walking Dead cast member told him the upcoming storyline, but he did say that he is still close with the cast and that they keep in touch on a regular basis.
“We all still speak and they kind of keep me up to date and stuff on what’s going on and all of that. … You have to understand [showrunner Scott M. Gimple] knows everything seasons and seasons out, so people knew, but we can’t say anything. No one can say anything. So it’s actually better to say that we don’t know.”
Does this mean that all the cast members actually do know which character Negan killed in the Season 6 finale? It’s likely they do, as Season 7 is due to start filming very soon, and Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, already revealed that he knows what happens, calling it “gut-wrenching.”
Many Walking Dead fans have their own theories about who Negan killed in the finale, and while nearly every character who was in the scene has been mentioned in the death talk, there are three names that have been mentioned more than any other.
Glenn is the character who is killed by Negan in The Walking Dead comic book series, and a lot of fans believe that he’ll also be the one to die on the TV series. It makes sense to kill off Glenn if the show is following the graphic novels. However, because the show likes to switch up the character deaths from the comics, some viewers believe that Glenn won’t be the one to die when Season 7 rolls around.
A lot of fans believe it could be Daryl, arguably the most popular character on The Walking Dead, who could be saying goodbye come October. While fans are dreading the thought of losing Daryl, it would be a shocking turn of events for the series to kill off such a fan favorite character.
Meanwhile, others believe that Abraham could be the one to bite the dust. Only a couple of episodes before the Season 6 finale, Dr. Denise was killed off in the same way Abraham was killed in the comic series. Some fans believe that because of this, it is Abraham, who will die at the hands of Negan, and since Abraham had such an emotional episode during the finale, there are a lot of reasons to believe it may be him who dies.
No matter which character is revealed as Negan’s victim, fans are sure to freak out when The Walking Dead Season 7 debuts in October.
