WARNING: If you have not seen the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead Do Not Continue
Fans were shocked and devastated when The Walking Dead killed off the characters it did in the season 7 premiere by having Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) barbed wire baseball bat Lucille make contact with their heads until all that remained of them was bloody pulp, but the show could have almost gone with an even more horrifying scene.
In an attempt to keep all of the spoilers at bay between April and October, death scenes were shot for all of the characters, but now, the scene which showed how things would have played out if Maggie (Lauren Cohan) had been the one Negan killed, and potentially, the scene shows a possibility where she would have been the only person to die, versus the scneario that did play out where Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) was the chosen victim, and after Daryl (Norman Reedus) tried to retaliate, an unsuspecting Glenn (Steven Yuen), Maggie's husband, was then beaten to death as well. Daryl was then also kidnapped by Negan when he finally let the rest of the group go.
The footage, which is blurry, shows Negan's game of "Eenie Meenie Miney Mo" ending with his bat in front of Maggie's face, instead of Abraham. The scene plays out the same as it did with Abraham's death, with Negan's warning that no one could interfere or he would cut out Carl's (Chandler riggs) other eye and feed it to Rick (Andrew Lincoln), before he slammed Maggie on the head. She is then seen also getting up again, like Abgraham did, prompting Negan's comments about his victim "taking it like a champ."
The change was how things played out when Maggie came back up again. When Abraham was the victim, he told Negan to "suck his n**s" before being knocked down again. In the leaked scene, Maggie just spits at him.
The footage cuts off after Maggie takes the second blow to her head, so it is unclear if there would have still also been a second death, and if it would have been her husband if it had occurred.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
