The Walking Dead: Alternate Death Scene Leaks Online

As Walking Dead fans are now only too painfully aware, both Abraham and Glenn fell victim to Negan’s bat Lucille in the much-discussed Season 7 premiere.

Prior to the episode’s airing, it was reported that each cast member involved had filmed a death scene and we saw evidence of this during Rick’s hallucination/vision, in which he imagined every one of his friends getting whacked in the head. Well, now one of those alternate death scenes has leaked and it’s so disturbing that we are happy it was scrapped.

As you can see in the video below, it’s Maggie who gets to have her brains spilled. We see Glenn protest and get whacked by one of Negan’s goons and after Maggie receives the first whack, she spits blood back at her attacker.

AMC has not confirmed whether or not Maggie was ever in serious consideration for the final cut, but considering the poor optics of a woman—and a pregnant one at that—being killed in such a fashion, even on a fictional television show, it’s probably safe to say that Maggie was always going to be safe from the bat.
