WATCH: Does the first Walking Dead season 7 clip reveal Negan’s fan-favourite victim?
The first sneak peek of The Walking Dead‘s long-awaited seventh season has been released.
Season six ended with a controversial cliffhanger in which one member of Rick’s group was brutally slaughtered by new series villain Negan. However, it was unclear who exactly died as the scene was shot from the victim’s perspective.
There have been thousands of fan attempts since to work out who saw the pointy end of Negan’s beloved Lucille, but our first solid hint may be this new clip – and it’s hinting towards a beloved fan favourite.
The new clip sees Saviour member Dwight making his way through a group of crawling walkers. The worrying thing about this? He’s still equipped with Daryl’s motorbike, and is now wearing Daryl’s jacket.
Fans first met Dwight in season six after he tricked Daryl into being captured by his group, containing fellow survivors Honey and Tina. Daryl later escaped and stole his captors’ supplies, but was horrified to learn that he had separated diabetic Tina from her supply of insulin in the process.
Daryl and Dwight briefly fought walkers together after Good Guy Daryl returned the insulin, but their alliance was short-lived as Dwight then stole Daryl’s motorbike and crossbow.
Dwight later attempted to assassinate Daryl with his own weapon, but hit an unlucky Denise instead.
Could Dwight’s change in attire mean that the person struck down by Negan was Daryl?
We’ll finally find out the truth on October 24 on FOX.
