In Sunday night’s controversial season seven premiere of “The Walking Dead,” titled “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” we finally learned who the sadistic Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) killed with his barbed-wire bat Lucille after last season’s cliffhanger ending. (SPOILER ALERT — If you don’t know by now, it’s not safe on the internet!) First he killed Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), but after a sudden outburst by Daryl (Norman Reedus) Negan decided to take another victim, Glenn (Steven Yeun).
Glenn had been on “The Walking Dead” since the very beginning of the series, and on a show with this much turnover — no one is safe in the zombie apocalypse — that’s quite a feat of survival. But now that he’s gone there are only five original cast members left: Andrew Lincoln as leader Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as his son Carl, Reedus as Daryl, Melissa McBride as abuse victim-turned-steely-warrior Carol Peletier and Lennie James as pacifist Morgan Jones. And James only half-counts; after guest starring in the pilot he only made sporadic appearances before returning to the show full-time in season five.
