With just 2 episodes left of season 6 of “The Walking Dead” speculation is running rampant about the arrival of Negan and Lucille.
While there are a lot of rumors floating around, there are also some actual facts too, courtesy of The Spoiling Dead Fans, which we are going to share with you.
The Spoiling Dead posted finale spoilers about 2 hours ago on their Facebook page, and while they didn’t reveal who Negan’s victim would be, they did eliminate some responsibilities and give us other important information.
Here’s what we’ve learned, courtesy of The Spoiling Dead:
*WARNING: Stop reading if you don’t want to know what is coming or are not caught up yet*
•Carol and Morgan are safe: according to TSD, a wounded Carol is found by Morgan and they are not with the others when they encounter Negan.
•Rick, Abraham,Maggie, Aaron, Eugene and Carl set off for the Hilltop community because Maggie is sick, which sets up their inevitable encounter with Negan.
Glenn eventually joins them.
Rick does not want Aaron along for the ride, but he insists out of loyalty to Maggie (which may come in handy of it’s Glenn who dies).
Could also be setting Aaron up to die, as he may volunteer to take Glenn’s place to spare Maggie.
• Rick and the others encounter 2 groups of Saviors on the road at different intervals. One group of Saviors has an unnamed hostage with them (not one of our people), and is led by the Lead Savior.
After a bit of back and forth, the Lead Savior lets them go, and then they are ambushed by another group of Saviors hiding in the woods.
The Saviors apparently shoots at their feet, trying to push them in the direction they want.
This reminds me of Terminus, when they shot at the group to corral them in the truck.
In addition to all of this, TSD is also reporting, but cannot confirm, the following:
•Michonne and Daryl are captured by the Saviors and reunite with the group when they are captured as well.
We know from previews Darryl goes after Carol, could be that Michonne follows, leading to their capture.
Makes sense as all the key players should be there for the pivotal Negan scene.
•9 key players are present when Negan and Lucille arrive during the last 10 minutes of the episode.
According to speculation, Rick, Carl, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne, Maggie, Abraham, Eugene and Aaron are there when Negan finally shows his face.
•In keeping with the comics, Negan gives a speech explaining to Rick and the group that they killed a lot of his men and must pay with someone’s life- as well as start working for him and giving him half of what they have/get.
He also makes it clear if they say no he will take out Carl’s other eye and give it to Rick.
•The finale ends on a cliffhanger as Negan decides who to kill, with all 9 characters on their knees. He starts with Maggie, saying it would put her out of her misery, and Glenn intervenes.
He then does “eeny, meeny, miny, moe” just like in the comics, with every characters face being shown.
Once he chooses the camera angle switches, showing the doomed characters POV, so viewers don’t know who it is until September.
For me, this would be a truly disappointing end, and based on social media reaction, many fans agree.
Cliffhangers are very cliche, and after the disaster fake-out death the show did earlier this year with Glenn and the dumpster, it would be a huge let down.
Who do you think will be Negan’s victim?
