Spoilers ahead for The Walking Dead's comic series and "Thank You" (6x03) episode of the TV series.

If you haven't watched....

Stop now.....

Still here? Continue, we shall.


In tonight's shocking episode of The Walking Dead, it looks like we lost a mainstay character who has been around since season one: Glenn Rhee. I say, "looks like," because I don't believe he's dead but that's not why we're here. We're here to talk about how he died in the comics.

The comics lead us all to believe Glenn would be in trouble this season, with the arrival of Negan rumored to be coming late in the second half. In issue #100, Negan made his debut and lined up Rick, Carl, Michonne, Heath, Glenn, and Maggie on their knees in front of him. After a rant justifying why he can't make a decision on who to kill, he played "eenie meenie miney moe," to select a victim, and landed on Glenn.

After his selection was made, Negan choked up on Lucille, his barbed wire wrapped baseball bat, and swung away on Glenn's head. Glenn's battered head murmured some last words, crying out for his pregnant wife, Maggie.


Negan and the Saviors have been expected and anticipated on the show but there's no confirmation on when they'll appear. If Glenn is, in fact, dead, who is Negan going to hit a home run on?

Why don't I think Glenn is dead? Check out my theory.

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