Set continuity for the Negan scene carrying over into Season 7
Ok I have some thoughts about why I'm almost 100% sure the actors are lying about not knowing who got the bat.
It would be impossible to set up that scene again this summer when they would supposedly film the death scene. You can see the actors breaths because they filmed the Negan introduction in November in Georgia. You wouldn't have that in May or June. Also there are a ton of extras and i doubt they would bring them all back for that one scene again. It's custom to film an entire scene at a time like that and have it carry over to the next season.
The actors wouldnt look the same, the weather and its effects wouldnt be the same. It just would not work. That is why i am very sure they already filmed the death scene. Unless, of course the Walking Dead is even worse than i already thought it was and either isnt going to show a death scene or actually is going to try to reset the entire scene in May, continuity be fucked.
Just something that caught my attention and that I've been thinking about. I'm not sure about anyone else but after the initial anger of the stupid cliffhanger, I've rewatched the scene a bunch and I really like it for the most part. JDM is awesome and I honestly think theres a lot of tension. Just wish that after the POV shot we would have gotten just 30 seconds more of film with AT LEAST character reactions to what just happened.
