It’s been months since season six of The Walking Dead ended with the death of an unknown character at Neegan’s hand. We’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of season seven to finally figure out what happened.
AMC has thrown us a little bone and released a new clip from season seven that might have hinted at a certain characters fate. In the clip, Dwight is riding Daryl Dixon’s bike and it looks like he’s wearing Daryl’s jacket. Wait…what happened to Dixon? He doesn’t seem like the type to lend out his jacket.
We’re hoping the writers haven’t chosen to kill off one of our favorite characters, but the show has been pretty unafraid to shake things up. Apparently, whoever does die in the beginning of the series is pretty important.
According to a statement from executive producer Scott M. Gimple, “What happens in episode one will shatter the lives of those who survive and will rend the narrative into different trajectories in which we will see our characters in completely new situations, torn from the pages of the comic and remixed in The Walking Dead remixinator 5000.”
Please, please let it not be Dixon. We need Norman Reedus in our lives.
