Survivors from the Alexandria safe zone are under the mercy of the Savior leader Negan, but a few of them may not survive beyond the premiere episode of The Walking Dead season 7. His terror will have a lasting impact on Rick Grimes after the death scene.
Warning: Major spoilers from the premiere episode of TWD season 7
The Facebook fan club, Spoiling Dead Fans, have posted a theory that claims at least two people will fall victim to Negan's baseball bat Lucille. According to the fan page, Daryl will also come under the notorious villain's scrutiny as he tries to save one of the victims.
Here is what the post reads:
While fans are eagerly waiting for the premiere episode, executive producer Greg Nicotero has teased weird and sadist Savior people in the zombie horror thriller. "The Saviors, as sadistic as they may appear, have a system that works for them. Yeah, they're f****d up and they're a little weird, but they've been doing this for a long time and they have a very large group. It's not like it's a pocket of 10 or 12 people," he told Entertainment Weekly.
Nicotero also teased back stories of the new characters referring to "mythologies" of the Savior people. "They have a good thing going and the most interesting thing about them for me is there's mythos involved with them.
The upcoming season is set to introduce another surviving society, The Kingdom, with Ezekiel as the leader. Rumours have it that he will save Carol and Morgan from Savior members and form a friendly alliance with Rick later in the show.
According to Nicotero, season 7 of TWD will give a detailed idea about how other surviving groups are working as a team. "The nice thing about this season is you will get a chance to see some of these inner workings of these different worlds and these communities and really get a chance to see how much they know about the rest of the world."
The seventh season of the zombie horror thriller will return to AMC in October and the premiere date and trailer will be revealed during the upcoming San Diego Comic Con.
