“The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus can’t tell you who is going to turn up dead in the Season 7 premiere, but he can tell you you’re not going to like it.
“I imagine a lot of people will be kicking their television sets,” Reedus said Thursday on “The Tonight Show.” “I mean, it’s heavy. It’s really, really heavy.”
If one fan theory is to be believed, Reedus’ Daryl could be the one who gets killed by Negan and his trusty barbed-wire baseball bat, Lucille.
In a sneak preview of the Season 7 premiere, we see Rick in the immediate aftermath of Negan killing a member of the group. Rick is sporting a noticeable blood spatter on the right side of his face that was not there when last we saw him.
Chances are that means the person who died was on Rick’s right side in the lineup, so either Rosita, Michonne, Abraham, Maggie, Daryl or Glenn is the most likely victim. That’s good news for Sasha, Carl, Eugene and Aaron, who were all on Rick’s left.
When Negan lined up the group, Maggie was immediately to Rick’s right, followed by Abraham, then Michonne. Daryl, Rosita and Glenn were the farthest away.
