In a grisly move, Negan killed Glenn (above) in Walking Dead season 7 premiere AMC

The Walking Dead season 7's premiere episode saw Negan unleashing unspeakable wrath on Rick Grimes's group and killing Glenn and Abraham by smashing their skulls with his bat Lucille.

Glenn's death was long coming as fans were speculating that the show will follow the path of the Comic book written by Robert Kirkman. However, the tragic scene had broken millions of heart, particularly when Glenn managed to utter his final words to Maggie even when he was breathing his last. "I'll find you Maggie" he told his pregnant wife before the notorious Savior leader bludgeoned him to death.

The emotional scene was difficult on the show viewers as well as on the actors and crew members. Steven Yeun, who said goodbye to the show with the gnarly premiere, has finally opened up about his character's finale words to Maggie.

"Glenn was fighting to find words and 'Maggie, I'll find you' was a callback to another experience and another time when he really was trying to find her. Maybe it was a subconscious thought or maybe something he held onto for a while that was his driving force, and when he got smashed in the head, it just brought it to the forefront. There are so many ways to look at it," he said in an AMC interview.

Though the scene made him exit the extremely popular show, Yeun thinks, he would have never wanted anyone else to take the death which was 'iconic'. "For me, personally, I didn't want anyone else to take that death, and I don't think anyone intended to give it to anyone else, to be quite honest. It's such an iconic moment, and I knew it was necessary to happen."

The Walking Dead season 7 airs on Sunday nights on AMC.
