EXCLUSIVE: 'Talking Dead' Host Chris Hardwick Makes His Top 3 Predictions for Who Negan Killed on 'The Walking


The answer to TV's biggest, most anxiety-filled question is almost here!

The answer to TV's biggest, most anxiety-filled question is almost here!

For the past seven months, fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting with bated breath to discover which poor, unfortunate skull was on the receiving end of Negan's brutal aggression with Lucille, his trusty barbed wire-covered bat.

The identity of Negan's victim will (hopefully!) be revealed this Sunday in the season seven premiere of AMC's undead drama, and the speculation hype surrounding the murderous cliffhanger is only getting bigger and bigger.

ET caught up with Talking Dead host and TWD super fan Chris Hardwick at the 2016 Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles last month, and asked him to name who he thinks Negan sadistically slaughtered in that bone-chilling game of "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…"

"Oh, God, I don’t know! I could see it being almost... well, everyone except for Carl because the P.O.V. didn’t have the one eye," Hardwick said with a laugh. "But I could see it being anyone."

One-eyed jokes aside, the 44-year-old TV personality then named his top three picks: "They could go traditional and go with Glenn," he said, referencing the fact that in Robert Kirkman's beloved graphic novels, Negan -- SPOILER ALERT! -- brutally murdered Glenn in this very same lineup.

"They could go with Abraham since he's the biggest one," Hardwick continued. "They could go with Maggie [and her unborn child] just because Negan is being a dick. I don’t know! It's plaguing me."

Hardwick admitted that despite the preparations needed for his Walking Dead after show, he will not discover which character is being killed off until this Sunday. "I won't watch [new episodes] until the day-of, because I just can't sit with it for that long," he said. "I can't tell anyone, and you'd get it out of me if I knew because I just have a lot of tells. It's just safer for everyone. We know that if there ever was a leak it's not coming from me."

"We'll all find out together," he added.

Regardless of who Negan kills, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan revealed at Comic-Con this summer that he is fully braced for "the salute of middle fingers and language" that is headed his way after Sunday's premiere.

Season 7 of The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
