The finale episode of “The Walking Dead” Season 6 raised a lot of questions. In particular, fans have been dying to know who Negan chose to kill before the episode faded to black. But did one of the show’s stars accidentally reveal who his first victim is? Did Negan really kill Michonne?
Danai Gurira, who plays this fan favorite from the series, recently caught up with E! Online to talk about her character’s fate in Season 7. “I know what’s happening,” the actress revealed. “I’ll tell you this much—I know something. I know a little bit more than you.” However, she kept mum when asked for specific details. “Suddenly, I don’t know anything,” she said, laughing a bit. “Where am I?”
Gurira’s feigned memory loss and refusal to disclose what she knows might be understandable. AMC earlier threatened to sue online groups that discuss fan theories and predictions for the show’s seventh season. According to IGN, one group, in particular, the Spoiling Dead Fans, even got a cease and desist order from the network.
“Their stance is that making such a prediction would be considered copyright infringement,” Spoiling Dead wrote in a statement they posted on Facebook. “AMC tells us that we made some claim somewhere that says we received ‘copyright protected, trade secret information about the most critical plot information in the unreleased next season of The Walking Dead.'” The group has denied the network’s claims. However, the group still decided to stop posting Season 7 predictions on their site.
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that the show’s next installment will expose Michonne, Rick and the rest of the gang to a bigger world. “There’s all new worlds that we’re going to meet,” Nicotero said. “The world is not even close to what the reality of the world is.”
“The Walking Dead” Season 7 is set to premiere on AMC in October.
