The biggest secret in television right now is the identity of the cast member who gets killed off of The Walking Dead when the series returns in October. In the sixth season finale, of course, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is seen delivering a series of blows to an unknown character with his barb-wired baseball bat, Lucille. Despite many attempts to figure it out, we still don’t know who that character is, and in fact, just last week I was expressing surprise and satisfaction that the Internet had not yet ruined the reveal.
Will The Walking Dead be able to keep the secret up until the seventh season premiere airs this October? There’s a potential but unlikely spoiler ahead, so if you don’t want to know, look no further.
