Walking Dead Season 7 Footage Teases Character Death

Walking Dead season 7 footage

It’s hard to believe that the Walking Dead season 7 footage that was released wasn’t chosen on purpose to tease a very specific death, but are they just teasing fans…or is it for real?

Take a look at the fifty-second clip below, which is the first Walking Dead season 7 footage that has been made truly public:


Many news outlets have already picked up on the fact that this footage, which shows Negan’s follower Dwight riding Daryl Dixon’s motorcycle and sporting his angel wing vest, could be some pretty solid proof that Daryl is the character who meets Negan’s barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille, shall we say, head-on.

Despite the fact that TWD doesn’t return until October 9th, there was a special episode of The Talking Dead last night. Despite the Walking Dead season 7 footage that aired in this Talking Dead special, though, not much else was revealed. I mean, we already knew that the premiere was bound to be a rough one, so even Chandler Riggs’ pronouncement that fans should “hold on to their cats” and Melissa McBride’s warning that we “aren’t prepared for what’s coming” aren’t all that surprising…and in fact make me question why the show would release a clip that seems so darn obvious.

Personally, Daryl is one of my top picks for death-by-Lucille, but now I’m wondering if this season 7 footage makes him such an obvious choice that it won’t be him at all.Walking Dead season 7 footage

Additionally, that’s not my only takeaway from this clip. Dwight looks pretty darn concerned about the walkers that litter his path; he even takes the time to stop and kill one of them, and all of this despite the fact that none of the walkers are in the position to go anywhere anytime soon. Did he know these people, perhaps? And if so, how did they ‘die’?

What do you think? Is Dwight’s reaction to these particular walkers of any importance? Does this footage prove that Daryl will die in the Walking Dead season 7 premiere? Or do you think it means another character is at risk? After all, Negan and Lucille also had Rick, Carl, Michonne, Glenn, Maggie, Abraham, Sasha, Aaron, Rosita, and Eugene at their mercy. Who is your pick for death-by-Lucille? Let us know in the comments!
