New ‘Walking Dead’ Season Seven Trailer: Is This Negan Victim Actually Safe?

At the end of The Walking Dead season six, we were all left with one question: who did Negan kill? The hyped-up, brand-new villain was only revealed in the final moments of the finale, at which point he made a long speech and decided to kill one member of Rick Grimes’ group of noble zombie-killing thugs – and we still don’t know who it was. The new trailer suggests Tara is safe, as she appears in brand-new shots.

But fans looking at the new season seven trailer seem to think they’ve spotted another one of the group in the shots. Careful screengrabbers have noted Abraham’s features in the speedy image below. Could he be another one of the safe ones?

You’d think the super-secretive AMC – who reportedly threatened to sue a spoiler-filled fan-site recently – would have taken care to remove any hint of who survived killing by Negan’s barbed wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille. If you look closer at the trailer it looks more like the lank-haired Dwight (although the redness of his face does make him look a lot like Abraham from this angle). Abraham’s hair isn’t that long – you can see Dwight below:

Outside this trailer, we’ve had recent hints of who’s alive – or not – from various sources. One of these is a video sent to Demi Lovato from the cast of the show, wishing her a happy birthday. In the video are the actors who play Rick, Daryl, Eugene, and Glenn.

Abraham may indeed be safe too, because in a recent interview with Abraham actor Michael Cudlitz, he says, “Now we get to see what a world with Negan and Abraham both in it will be like. That’s something we don’t see in the graphic novels.” The two important characters that remain unaccounted for? Michonne and Maggie. We can only hope they’re ok…
