Negan Can't Save A Lost Season Of The Walking Dead

Negan Can't Save A Lost Season Of The Walking Dead

I was extremely disappointed in season 6 of The Walking Dead.  It felt like they stalled for an entire season to accommodate Negan’s grand (and violent) entrance.  Except we didn’t get a violent entrance.  It was certainly compelling but the cliffhanger left many fans (myself included) frustrated.

Over time, I’ve put that frustration behind me and now anticipation is building again.  Honestly, I didn’t think it would.  I thought season 6 was the beginning of the end for me.  But there’s something very intriguing about a powerful new villain testing our favorite survivors.  In my opinion, danger has finally returned to The Walking Dead!

When season 7 premieres on October 23, 2016, we’ll finally get the answer to the question we’ve all been asking.  Who will Negan Kill?

There are obvious plot threads in the comics that point to one person.  There are fan theories that lead to others.  There are also rumors that the production filmed death scenes for every member of the cast to disguise the true identity of Negan’s victim.  So who will ultimately meet Lucille?

I’ve enlisted the help of fellow Nerd Infinite contributors and some guest appearances from some of the biggest TWD fans we know.  Below you’ll find odds on every character from multiple points of view.  We took an average and ranked them all accordingly.

There are mild spoilers ahead so read at your own risk!

CARL

Would they kill off Carl?  Could they? With a bat? I’ll be honest, I didn’t think he would survive Season 6’s mid season finale after taking a bullet to the eye ball.  They might kill him off someday but odds are he survives Season 7’s big premiere.

RICK

This would be a complete shocker.  A legendary and confident move by the brains behind the production.  Can you successfully kill off the main character in a show as popular as The Walking Dead and move forward?

If he does die, who takes over?  Daryl? Glenn? Carl?

Either way, he won’t die…  Probably.

AARON

Aaron is just starting to solidify himself amongst the cast.  His death would be tragic but it still lacks the emotional impact to payoff such a massive cliffhanger.

MICHONNE

Michonne is positioned safely in the middle of the cast.  Her death would be shocking but incredibly wasteful without a strong arc to back it up.  Odds are, she’s safe and gets a deeper storyline in Season 7.

SASHA

Sasha would be interesting.  Her new relationship with Abraham would make her death extremely painful for him moving forward.  Still, her death would be similar to that of Aaron’s.  It would be sad but does it really payoff season 6’s abrupt ending?

MAGGIE

As shocking as it may be…  I highly doubt Negan will beat a sick pregnant woman with a baseball bat on national television…  Or would he?

If this list predicted the character fans want SAVED, Daryl would dominate.  Thats why Lucille is scary…

ROSITA

I think Rosita has a lot left to offer The Walking Dead moving forward.  I can’t see Negan beating her to death with a baseball bat.  She has so much potential to be a strong female badass on the show.  Perhaps it’s the potential ‘fan favorite’ label that makes her expendable?

EUGENE

Eugene took a big step forward in Season 6 letting go of his fear and picking up a weapon to fight.  That makes his potential death an incredibly emotional moment.  The writer’s had to have considered killing off Eugene but will they pull the trigger?

ABRAHAM

At last we reach the big contenders.  Abraham is one of two obvious choices for several reasons.  His character is in a fragile state yet he remains courageous and protective of his friends.  He is part of a complicated love triangle with Rosita and Sasha as well.  Abraham is most definitely in danger.

GLENN

Glenn.  The number 1 contender.

Glenn’s ‘fake’ death in Season 6 was divisive to say the least.  Fans saw right through the fake out and skipped right to speculating when he would come back.  When season 7 begins, we will find out if the fake out was meant to lure fans into a false sense of security before taking him out for good.

Or he lives and all 6 of our odds makers were wrong.  What do you think?  Who will die?  One character?  More than one?  How will a full season of Negan impact The Walking Dead’s legacy?
