The Walking Dead Prologue Makes First Mention Of Negan


Spoiler Warning: If you haven't watched The Walking Dead Midseason 6 Finale: Start To Finish, then be warned that spoilers follow. There are also spoilers for the comic book series.

After a mid-season finale packed with walkers overrunning Alexandria, The Walking Dead offered up one final shocker for fans in a bonus prologue scene for the remainder of Season 6. In the prologue scene, Daryl, Abraham, and Sasha run into a gang of bikers in the middle of the road.

The leader of the biker gang tells the trio to get out of their vehicle. He then demands their vehicle and all of their weapons. He also goes through a long list of other things they might have, demanding that everything else be turned over as well, starting with a threat to split them in two, "Right to the sinuses."

"Your weapons, your truck, the fuel in your truck... If you got mints in your glove compartment, if you got porn underneath the seat... Change in the seats, hell, the seats themselves, the floor mats, stash of emergency napkins you got there in the console... None of those things are yours anymore," the leader of the group explains.

The biker gang leader finishes by saying, "Your property now belongs to Negan."

Negan is the one of the most brutal villains ever in The Walking Dead comic book series, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan was recently cast to play him in the TV series. Negan is known for carrying a barbed-wire baseball bat that he calls Lucille. More details about who Negan is can be found in the video below.

In the comic books, Negan uses Lucille to bash in the head of Glenn. With Glenn having recently survived a horde of walkers by climbing under a dumpster, it's unknown if the TV series will actually follow the comic book series. Of course, the mere mention of the name Negan will likely create fear that Glenn was only saved so that he could meet the same fate he did in the comic books.


While tonight's prologue was the first direct reference to Negan, the character isn't expected to make his on screen debut until The Walking Dead Season 6 finale.

The Walking Dead returns February 14, 2016.
