While we still haven’t fully recovered from Abraham’s death in The Walking Dead Season 7 opener, we’ve kinda moved on from Glenn’s brutal demise.
It’s not because we didn’t love Glenn — I mean, really, who wasn’t attached to the character that Steven Yeun so artfully crafted — it’s just that TWD has been teasing us with his death for so long, we really saw it coming. That, and we also knew from Robert Kirkman’s comic books that it was Glenn’s time to join that great, non-zombie spirit in the sky.
But what if Glenn and Abraham hadn’t been the anticipated Season 7 premiere deaths that everyone’s been agonizing over since the Season 6 finale? It’s not just a rhetorical question — it could have been real. And now there’s supposedly leaked footage that proves it.
A YouTube account posted footage this week that shows Maggie meeting the end of Negan’s bat as Glenn screams in agony. Um, what? As already stated above, we’re still not over seeing Abraham go, but if it had been Maggie, it might have been time to abandon the series.
Now, there’s obviously a problem with this footage. It’s so freakin’ grainy that it’s hard to even tell what’s really going on or if Maggie is dead after being beaten by Lucille. The fact that the video looks so bad has raised some questions about it’s authenticity. In other words, it’s totally possible this TWD death scene was actually filmed in someone’s basement.
On the other hand, we do know that the makers of The Walking Dead did shoot alternate death scenes to help keep the premiere a surprise. And it obviously worked, since fans were left reeling after Sunday’s episode.
Do you think the allegedly leaked footage is real or fake?
