First Image Revealed from The Walking Dead Season 7
After last year's cliffhanger, fans are clamoring to know which of their favorite characters was on the receiving end of Negan's beloved Lucille (at least the fans that haven't been looking for filming spoilers). Now, we finally have the first image from season 7, and it once again confirms that we will find out who will die in the premiere--or in other words, it's just another tease.

Negan season 7

In the photo, Negan is seen threatening the group with the Saviors behind him, and Lucille is perfectly clean, which confirms that we'll essentially be seeing the last act of the finale from another angle. It would almost be funny if they took several episodes to reveal which character died, but according to executive producer Greg Nicotero, who directed the finale and premiere, we won't have to wait too long.

"Yes, who was at the receiving end of Negan's bat will be revealed in the first episode," Nicotero told EW.

Does this mean that we'll have to see all of Negan's rant to the group again? It's unclear, but Nicotero at least confirms that we'll be seeing a lot more (hopefully profanity-laced) Negan rants in the future.

Opening quote
"Negan is that kind of guy," said Nicotero. "He's the kind of guy who imagines himself on stage at a high school production and he loves every second of it. So, I don't really see a lot of quiet contemplative moments with Negan. I feel like with Negan it's really going to be about him gesticulating and him sort of relishing in the sound of his own voice while he commands the stage in front of whoever's alive."
Closing quote

The premiere will likely get huge ratings, just so fans won't be spoiled on who dies (although let's be real, we pretty much know already). I'll be curious to see if the ratings fall after that, but for now, let the incessant teasing continue.

The Walking Dead returns for season seven this fall on AMC.
