The death scenario from ‘The Walking Dead’ season six finale has been further reviewed by a well-known source of spoilers, and it seems that fans who look forward to this fall’s premiere will have more than one reason to be unhappy with the predictions.
Plenty of spoilers for the new season of ‘The Walking Dead’ have made their rounds online, some of which have been made by The Spoiling Dead Fans.
As stated in one of the Facebook group’s posts, "Abe will be killed first followed by Glenn. Daryl, who tries to interfere, will be taken by Negan and will apparently not like dog food sandwiches."
Proof of Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) confinement was one of the first ever spoilers predicted based on this summer’s filming. Photos offered a look at the motorcycle-riding longtime survivor decked in a ragged prison jumpsuit.
By closely observing the production process within several months, the fan group states that Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) are the only two characters that were present when Negan was introduced who were not spotted on set since the premiere finished filming.
The group’s post, however, deems such details as a "prediction, theory, speculation [or] whatever."
AMC had earlier made threats of taking legal action against persons who reveal information with concrete evidence.
When stating their comments of what they "think" will happen next, one of the page moderators said: "I guess I need to throw that word in there." This suggests that the source is certain of its predictions but is not legally capable of declaring them as facts.
Fans who have gone through "The Walking Dead" comic series are likely to agree with this approach through which the award-winning TV show uses its long-term technique of combining key scenes with the comic book.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott M. Gimple was asked about the death scene, and although he did not directly confirm that Glenn will be killed by Negan, he clarified how the episode will be, in one way or another, stay faithful to the printed narrative.
"Let me put it this way: Whatever it is, it's really just all in service to being faithful to the comic book inasmuch as one can," Gimple explained. "That's always going to be relatively subjective as to what that means. But taking inspiration from the moments of the comic book and playing them out to the ends of what it can be, it's all just like taking that moment from the book and figuring out a way to turn it up to get those feelings that it gave you and those emotions that it gave you that much more."
On the other hand, Yeun releases a teasing statement when it comes to the possibility of his character getting killed by Negan.
"I know people are going to always go, 'Negan kills Glenn in the comics,' but rest assured that we don't necessarily do what's in the comics,” the actor said.
‘The Walking Dead’ season seven is expected to premiere in October on ANC.
