AMC is feeling mighty protective of its zombie drama plot twists. Especially considering how polarizing the finale was. If you aren’t caught up with Walker World, the latest season ended with Negan’s bloody beatdown of… someone. We don’t know who was killed in The Walking Dead’s sixth season finale, and AMC want to keep it that way.
First off, AMC allegedly issued a cease and desist to The Spoiling Dead, a website/Facebook page. In recent years, the page has become very accurate in its projections. On Tuesday, the page posted that “.. After two years, AMC finally reached out to us! But it wasn’t a request not to post any info about the Lucille Victim… it was a cease and desist and a threat of a lawsuit by AMC Holdings, LLC’s attorney, Dennis Wilson. They say we can’t make any type of prediction about the Lucille Victim. Their stance is that making such a prediction would be considered copyright infringement.” You can read the whole statement here, but long story short, The Walking Dead is looking to keep its secrets locked up tight.
Then, it was reported today that more than one ending was filmed. In fact, every possible lead has filmed an execution. That’s 11 gruesome death scenes, where only one will actually be used. Whoever it is that may be getting killed, The Walking Dead doesn’t want you to find out. It’s the same sort of secrecy Game of Thrones pulled with the fate of Jon Snow, albeit taken up a notch or two. If nothing else, all the rumor mills are spinning extra press for the show. The more they try to protect it, the more people will want to know. Until the show comes back on in October, we’ll just have to make our own conjectures. They just better not be too right.
In the meantime, we’re free to make conjectures about what certain death will mean for the show. Read about our thought on what would be good about the deaths of characters like Daryl, Maggie, or Carl.
