The Walking Dead: Has Negan’s Victim Already Been Revealed?

While the season six finale of The Walking Dead accomplished its task of generating speculation about whom Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgon) killed thanks to its already-infamous cliffhanger, it’s also inevitably leading to problems that the show’s writers inexplicably seem to have not foreseen; namely, that fans would figure things out long before the show returns in October.

A fan has posted a YouTube video that isolates the dialogue during the episode’s final scene, seemingly revealing the identity of Negan’s victim in the process. While the video in no way offers definitive proof of anything, it’s probably still best not to listen to it if you want to avoid potential SPOILERS.

If the isolated audio in this video is any indication, it sounds like Glenn is the one who gets his face beat in by Negan’s bat Lucille. If true, this would mean that the show falls in line with the comics, as Glenn is the character who is killed by Negan. Setting aside the video and its “revelations” though, it still feels hard to believe that the show would go in the same direction as the comics after the fake-out with Glenn that happened earlier in the season. Still, Glenn is definitely at the top of the list of Negan’s potential victims and this video will only add fuel to that fire.

Whether or not this video actually has the answers fans are craving right now, it’s representative of the finale’s major issues. The show’s writers seemingly had the best intentions by deliberately withholding information until next season — a decision that series star Andrew Lincoln recently defended — but even if this video turns out to be false, it’s very likely that the secret will be spoiled long before the show returns in October. So if you don’t want to find out who Negan killed, you’ll probably have to stay off the internet for the next five months or so.
