The Walking Dead Season 7 is about to make cable TV history when it returns to AMC this October. But there are more things that fans can expect than to just hear about what happened after that Season 6 cliffhanger. As a matter of fact, seeing who Negan killed in the very first episode of Season 7 might just end up being the least surprising moment in the premiere.
One thing that fans of The Walking Dead have known for quite some time is that Negan was coming and he was going to put someone’s lights out. That someone was not just some random person from Alexandria, but rather a core member of the original Walking Dead group.
But did you also know that there is more than one possibility for who he killed on The Walking Dead? What we mean is, not just who he killed, but rather how many he killed. There is a better than good chance that Carol and Morgan could have come out of the woods and made a last stand for their people, which could have also led to their own deaths.

In The Walking Dead comic books, Carol had never made it this far and her character has changed quite dramatically to give the show that extra amp it needs for drama and horror. The shock factors in The Walking Dead are quite high and when fans see someone get knocked off, it usually does not happen in a way that is expected. But then again, The Walking Dead is a TV show that pits danger around every corner.
So when Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) sat down with Entertainment Weekly for an interview for his new show, Ride With Norman Reedus, he gave fans a few details and teases about what they can expect out of Season 7 of The Walking Dead.

First of all, Reedus wanted to talk about his experience with fans of The Walking Dead asking him to tell them about who died.
“I don’t like spoilers, to be honest, I don’t want people to tell me the ending to the movie when we sit down in a movie theater,” Norman Reedus told EW. “I don’t like them, so I don’t do them. I like the enthusiasm behind everyone wanting to know, but it’s a good feeling to have that enthusiasm, so let’s hold onto it.”
Reedus also wanted people to know that even though Season 6 of The Walking Dead featured a cliffhanger, that does not mean it wasn’t for the fans.
“Sometimes you make something just to get people to talk,” Reedus said. “The fact that people are still talking is a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it. That’s a good thing.”
But in regard to actually revealing what fans can expect from the Season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, Reedus was excited to say the least. His words rang loud and clear and fans of The Walking Dead should be really excited to see what may be coming their way this fall.
“Trust me. I think probably the planet is going to explode. That’s my feeling. It’s so good,” Reedus said. “Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it – no pun intended. It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me.”
Of course, that was easy for Norman Reedus to say because he already knows what happened. But for those Walking Dead fans that are still sitting on their couches with their mouths dropped open, that’s another story.
