Fans of The Walking Dead were left understandably upset when, at the end of the recent season six finale, the creative team decided to leave Negan’s victim, and the latest group character to die, a mystery by cutting to their POV shot in the final moments. Obviously, after months and months of waiting to see the iconic villain come onscreen and have his big moment, to only see half of it felt cheap. So no, no matter how much you say it Nicotero, Gimple, and Kirkman – it was not art, it was cheap.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from theorizing about the possible victim’s identity though, in order to try and save themselves from months and months of waiting, and it looks like one specific fan thinks he’s narrowed it down to at least two possibilities, and his logic stands.
YouTube user Slaykone published two videos breaking down the final scene of the episode, and if his reasoning and detective work is as solid as it seems, it looks like Negan’s victim is either Daryl, or Glenn, two of the most iconic and beloved characters of the show.
Check out the videos below:
So, as he points out, the two people we know for sure aren’t the victims, are Rick and Carl, thanks to the final line from Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s villain before he started bashing some brains in. The videos themselves are interesting as well, and while we obviously won’t know for sure which character it is until later this year when the seventh season premieres, these two theories seem to be some of the strongest to surface from the fan community so far.
