Barely a week from now, fans of the worldwide smash zombie-filled AMC show, "The Walking Dead," are about to witness one of its episodes' most brutal scenes to the tune of a swinging bat which also belongs to one of the series' most nefarious villains — Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Ultimately, now is time to call out the humongous elephant in the room — who among the characters is going to bite the dust?

For those who have read the original material from which the show was derived, it is as clear as the sky that Glenn (Steven Yeun) was the one who met the deadly Lucille bat. And if this is to be followed strictly, then the premiere episode is really set for a truly emotional episode. 

Another speculation has mounted up that more than one character is set for his or her demise in the forthcoming premiere episode. Apart from Glenn, there is one or two more characters who are tipped to be hit by Negan. These potential characters include Aaron (Ross Marquand) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz). However, the latter (Cudlitz) has refuted the theory via an interview, saying, "Abraham will continue for a while now."

Meanwhile, the publication Metro has conclusively speculated, based on its gathered theories, that the premiere episode would dish out a shocking double death of the heavily pregnant Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Glenn, with Maggie being the one who gets to be hit by the swaying bat. 

Further to the Maggie theory, it was also pointed out in one of "The Walking Dead's" posters and teaser clips, which showed Rick (Andrew Lincoln) with blood splattered on his right face. It is noted that Maggie on the right side of Andrew.

As such, all of these are just based on heavy and detailed speculations and should be taken with a grain of salt until the show premieres its seventh season on Oct. 23.
