Who did Negan kill?? That’s the biggest question ‘Walking Dead’ fans have been asking since the show’s sixth season finale. So much so that they’re going to extreme lengths to try and find out the answer. Drones, anyone? Find out how the show’s creators are keeping the big reveal hidden.
Fans of the zombie drama, The Walking Dead, have been speculating wildly since the season six finale aired earlier this year, leaving viewers wondering which beloved character got the ax. Or rather, which character was beaten to death by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The show’s network, has found the most brilliant way to keep the answer from getting out. HollywoodLife.com has the scoop here!
As you will remember, season six ended with Carl (Chandler Riggs), Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Arron (Ross Marquand), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn (Steven Yeun) all lined up in front of Negan, and his fave barbed wire-covered bat, Lucille. Then, Negan takes a deadly swing at one of them. And that’s it! SO with the seventh season not premiering until October, and filming having already begun in Atlanta, fans are going to CRAZY lengths to try figure out just which one of their faves is with us no more. But AMC recently revealed what they are doing to keep fans guessing.
Each of the 11 cast members who were involved in the terrifying scene filmed their very own death scene, sources revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. The shows producers and the episode’s director are then going to work with the editors to pick the character who actually dies. WHAT??? That’s insane! Eleven different scenes just to keep one secret? Yup! But we totally get it. That reveal is going to be priceless. Season seven of The Walking Dead picks up immediately with Negan’s deadly swing at someone’s head, according to THR. “You’ll see who was at the end of that bat and what happened from there,” Jeffrey said to THR. Apparently the victim is “beloved to everyone.” Oh, great.
Fans continue to hang out in Atlanta locations trying to catch sight of their favorite character …. and some have brought drones. The show isn’t so happy about that. “With the advent of drones, it can become such a game of cat and mouse that as far as sneaking a peek at the actors walking to set, we want to just keep our actors safe and the people who might be looking safe — like [when they’re] in the street,”showrunner Scott M. Gimple told THR last summer. So, no to drones? Guess we’ll just have to wait till October!
