Who did Negan kill in The Walking Dead season 6 finale? That’s the question that has been plaguing the minds of fans for weeks now ever since the episode aired and now, a potential new sighting on set may reveal who is victim is.

Celebrity Laundry claim sightings on set indicate that Glenn Rhee is dead “for sure” because actor Steven Yeun has been missing on set while everyone else has been filming scenes, report Squareeyed.tv.

Glenn was Negan’s victim in the comics and although showrunners have previously hinted at changes, it looks as though they’re sticking with this particular major incident.

Steven’s co-star Norman Reedus, 47, who plays Daryl Dixon, recently revealed he was heartbroken by the undisclosed death.

“We’re a very tight-knit group down there [on location in Georgia], and we take it very personally, because we’re in it and living it … Every time you see us crying on camera, those are real tears. It’s a whole day of living that s**t,” he told TV Line.

“When personal things happen to you, you don’t wander around telling everybody your personal stuff. So for us, it doesn’t feel like just a spoiler, it feels like a moment that really happened.

“If there’s a death involved, it’s kinda weird to talk about it. It’s like going to our friend’s funeral or going possibly to our own funeral! It’s not like, ‘Hey, how are you? Want a selfie? Let me tell you about the funeral I was just at’.”

The season 6 cliffhanger climax caused outrage among fans and creator Robert Kirkman has been forced to defend it since it aired, after a petition on change.org demanding a changed finale that showed who got brutally bludgeoned by Negan’s trusted baseball bat Lucille.

“One of the side effects that I’m upset about is that people aren’t talking about Jeffrey Dean Morgan enough. I think that he is absolutely amazing as Negan,” Robert told Uproxx.

“I think that his presence in that finale adds so much to the show. I know people don’t like the cliffhanger aspect of it, but I like to think that everything up to that moment was pretty amazing, and people were digging it.”

“I think people are discounting the fact that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Negan are in the show now,” he explained. “So you’re going to be seeing stuff like that pretty much every episode of season seven. Not necessarily cliffhangers. I don’t want to worry people, but Negan is going to be an ever-present, constant threat that is going to change everything moving forward.

“And maybe I’ve said things like that before, but I promise you, Negan is going to be different. Season seven is going to be really cool. I couldn’t be more excited about it.”
