The season premiere of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ was Sunday night and fans found out who died at the hands of Negan. To keep the reveal secretive AMC filmed everyone getting killed at the hands of Negan and the death scene of Maggie leaked on to the internet this evening.
Jeff Dean Morgan had this to say about filming all the different death scenes of main characters.
“Look, that whole episode was hard, and also because I did go through and smack everybody with Lucille at a certain point. Everybody took a hit. All of that was hard,” said Morgan to Interview Magazine.
Watch the death of Maggie while it is still up.
The seventh season of ‘The Walking Dead’ airs Sunday nights on AMC.
ABOUT SEASON SEVEN:
Up until this point, the survivors have lived through conflicts… Disease, hunger, scores of the undead, tragedy, betrayal, and unthinkable loss. Through this, they’ve become formidable. Powerful. Unstoppable.
To start Season 7, that power is taken away. They had found safety and stability. They had created a home. They thought the world was theirs. They thought they knew the world. They were wrong.
The first half of Season 7 sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his control, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don’t.
Other characters are unaware of what’s happened, but have become separated from the group either by incident or choice — they will learn that they can’t escape this new turn of their world, either. This half season is about these characters starting over.
The overall theme of the season is beginning again. The world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s bigger and it’s even more dangerous.
