Season 6 of The Walking Dead ended on a huge cliffhanger as new villain Negan made his grand entrance by bashing somebody's face in with a baseball bat. The show didn't reveal which of the good guys was Negan's victim, and fans spent weeks debating (and complaining) that we'd have to wait until Season 7 to find out who had been beaten to death. No premiere date has yet been announced for Season 7, so we shouldn't expect much new material to debate too soon. But, The Walking Dead has now released some teaser images about the cliffhanger that could get people talking again.
The teaser images were posted on the show's Facebook page as the Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con approaches, and they cover each of the characters that were last seen in the clearing where Negan was choosing his victim. The pictures don't really narrow down the list of characters likely to be dead for Season 7, but they're worth checking out if you want to see a bad guy getting ready to play tee-ball with the heads of the good guys.
Glenn makes sense as the person whose picture should be first on the gallery of people who might be very dead courtesy of Negan. He had so many near-death experiences in Season 6 that he feels due for a big death, and his character in the comics infamously came to a very gruesome end courtesy of Negan and his beloved baseball bat Lucille. Of course, Glenn is such an obvious candidate that the Walking Dead producers might not want to waste the big death on somebody who everybody knows might die. Then again, since the producers know we know, they might have just decided to kill him anyway. Who knows?
Maggie was the character in the clearing who already looked like she was at death's door even without Negan gleefully brandishing a blunt object. She was possibly in the midst of a miscarriage throughout the whole episode, and it's not unreasonable to guess that Negan might have decided to get rid of the person who looked like a weak link who wouldn't be able to do much for him. It would be an uncomfortable move for The Walking Dead to murder the pregnant woman, but it could happen.
Michonne is a woman with so much steel in her backbone that it seems like it should take much more than a guy on a power trip with a baseball bat to kill her. In fact, Michonne was one of only a couple of characters who could look Negan in the eye as he taunted the group about which of them he'd murder. Her bravery could be her undoing as Negan decides to make an example of one of the strongest of them, and The Walking Dead would certainly serve up a surprise in killing off the character who has arguably become the female lead of the series.
Glenn, Maggie, and Michonne are three of the eleven characters that could have been killed by Negan in the Season 6 finale. Check out the rest of the teaser images to see the other candidates, and be sure to take a look at our breakdown of what we know so far about The Walking Dead Season 7 for a peek ahead.
