It’s been two weeks since the season 6 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead. In that time there have been a lot of theories going around. Some have been logical. Some have been convoluted. All of them have been the cries of desperate fans of the show wanting to know the answer to one question: Who got killed?
(SPOILER ALERT) We don’t know either and you’re not going to find out by reading this story.
In case you’re one of the three people in the world who cares about the show, but hasn’t had a chance to watch the episode, here’s what happened. Rick’s crew goes mobile, yadda yadda yadda, Negan kills one of the survivors with a baseball bat that’s wound with barbed wire.
That bat’s name is Lucille. It’s sad that we know that it has the same name as the comic version of the bat that is used, and yet we don’t know who got their melon busted. (YET ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT) The television show is based on a comic, and in the comic book version of the story, Glenn is on the receiving end of the whooping. For the TV show, it could have been any one of 11 people.
Until recently, we’d been told the death was not filmed for the episode, and no one even knows who died yet. Then Norman Reedus claimed he knew, but that’s just Daryl talking.
Today Entertainment Weekly is reporting a former cast member has informtaion. Tyler James Williams, who played Noah on the show until last season when he was eaten in front of his friends, is saying that, not only does he know, but that he has known for a while.
“You have to understand [show runner Scott M. Gimple] knows everything seasons and seasons out, so people knew, but we can’t say anything. No one can say anything.”
You read it right; it’s known but you don’t know. That really makes waiting for season 7 to start all the more painful, doesn’t it? It is almost as if it is some sort of plan to hype up the show and have people discuss it between now and October 9th when The Walking Dead returns.
