We’re probably going to get our first look at some footage from the seventh season of The Walking Dead during San Diego Comic-Con next week, but Entertainment Weekly has unveiled a never-before-seen image of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan to help ease the wait. Speaking with the magazine, executive producer Greg Nicotero confirmed that Negan’s victim will indeed be revealed in the season seven premiere this October:

“Yes, who was at the receiving end of Negan’s bat will be revealed in the first episode.”

The director of the season six finale and the season seven premiere also talked about the fan favorite villain and teased his role in the upcoming season:

“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.”

    Carl being the victim would be a nice twist. It would be completely horrifying and shocking, but after coming to grips with it, we will all feel better knowing that at least Daryl and Glenn are still alive. I can’t imagine this show without Daryl or Glenn….that would be way too hard to recover from.

      In the Season 6 finale he says something about feeding part of Rick to Carl if anyone tries anything while he kills his victim, so it’s not Carl. It’ll probably be Daryl or Michonne.
