Rumored The Walking Dead Finale Song Might Offer Clues On Who Dies

TWD Daryl Glenn

Now, this one might be a bit of stretch, but some people are talking about it so I feel like we should at least acknowledge it.

Be warned, mild spoilers but mostly speculation about The Walking Dead's season finale follow.

Surely, someone will die upon Negan's arrival. It's been greatly hyped and comic fans are expecting bloodshed. The cast members have repeatedly emphasized the craziness of the episode, how phenomenal Negan's entrance is, and Melissa McBride said she couldn't speak after reading it. So, it's going to get ugly.

A new rumor has spawned regarding the finale and it has to do with a song which will allegedly play to cap of the sixth season. It's called "This Ain't The End," originally performed by Mara Lavelle. Naturally, fans started digging for clues when they found this out as many suspect Negan's introduction will be the concluding moments of episode 16.

There are a couple of ways this song is being analyzed.

The first is that Emily Kinney will make a reappearance as Beth during a hallucination of Daryl Dixon's as an invitation to join him in the after life. Now, that makes very little sense. Sure, they were friendly, but if we're basing that on the fact that Emily Kinney appeared on set this season, it would make much more sense for her to be singing Maggie into the great beyond.

The other theory, of course, circles Glenn. They're finding the lyrics, "We are family," and "Our legacy will never die," to be in reference to his unborn baby. 

There is always the possibility that both of these theories are wrong and this song will not actually be the one which plays during the finale at all but we'll have to wait until April 3 to find out. There are still two episodes remaining before the finale, anyway. Glenn, Maggie, and Daryl have to make it that far before we can assume Negan kills any of them, in the first place.

If I had to weigh in, I'd have to go with a combination of these theories. The emphasis on the episode's darkness and struggles to digest its script indicate something truly beyond a simple character loss. One theory pegs Rick as Glenn's killer. He is put into a situation where he is forced to kill the dad-to-be or see his entire group slaughtered, only to ultimately do so and have Maggie killed, as well. Now, that's dark.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 PM ET on AMC.

    I think it's gonna be maggie/"the baby"... they can change it from the comic but they won't take out Glenn screaming Maggie's name either way whether it's while he or she is dying. Either way it's going to be horrible.

  1. As for the Beth coming to Daryl as a hallucination I think that's just what all the Bethly "shippers" want to happen. Just like all the Caryl shippers were devastated when Caril and Tobin happened. Everyone thinks since Rickchonne happened then all the ships will. I don't ship & not a big fan of the name mashup but you get use to it on social media. I still say it could be anyone that Negan kills but also I heard that allegedly awhile ago some footage from "the scene" was leaked! They say it's impossible to find now but I don't want to find it because I want to be surprised. But the alleged footage is said to show Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan and its from first person point of view so you can't see who he's killing. It's as if you're in front of him and he's bringing the bat down on you. My thought is wouldn't that be a terrible and genius cliffhanger? End season 6 with the bat coming down but we don't know on who! It would drive fans nuts! But strategic wise it would be a great way to ensure that the season 7 premiere be the most viewed.

    Yeah Daryl isn't dying and I don't think Emily Kinney was ever seen near set - those "team delusionals" would have lost their minds. It's just desperate bethyl shippers. Sadly I think Glenn will go because this show isn't subtle on foreshadowing but it has nothing to do with any song theory

    If they have Rick kill Glenn or any of the others, I don't think I could watch the show again. Id never be able to see Rick the same again. It's the dumbest thing they could do.
