Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the premiere of Season 7 of “The Walking Dead.”
Negan’s victims were finally revealed during the Season 7 premiere of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday night.
Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) both found themselves on the receiving end of Lucille, Negan’s barb wire-wrapped bat.
However, a clip leaked right before Sunday’s finale that depicted a different victim.
The blurry footage shows Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) as the unlucky winner of Negan’s brutal “eeny, meeny, miny, moe” game instead of Abraham. She takes two brutal blows to the head. Glenn cries out to his pregnant wife, but gets knocked out. Watch it below :
Negan’s dialogue is the exact same in the episode that aired. “Ooh, look at that,” he proclaims. “Taking it like a champ.”
The showrunners filmed multiple death scenes, snippets of which were used in the premiere as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) envisioned the rest of their deaths.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan, told Interview Magazine that filming the all the alternate scenes was difficult. “Look, that whole episode was hard, and also because I did go through and smack everybody with Lucille at a certain point,” he explained. “Everybody took a hit. All of that was hard.”
AMC had no comment regarding the source of the leak or the authenticity and nature of the footage.
