Abraham dies in The Walking Dead at Negan's hands (My prediction)

With the season 6 finale of The Walking Dead leaving us puzzled/angry/incensed and wondering who Negan killed with his baseball bat Lucille, there's a lot of theories going around about who got their head smashed in with Negan's barbed wire bat when Season 7 starts. 

Eeenie, meenie, miny moe...where my bat lands nobody knows

In my last post, I wrote about how Carol would die to save Daryl, not because I thought it'd happen (Carol is one of the few stars in the show who can go all Die Hard on her enemies ass - just ask the saviors), but because it'd make a fitting end for a warrior.

Comic Kingdom meets the TV Walkerverse

Of course, Carol is safe after Morgan saved her from her death wish, Together they've met one of the members of The kingdom, a community led by Ezekiel who we'll be seeing soon along with his pet tiger. 

Someone who definitely has been captured is is Abraham who left with Rick's and Co to take Maggie to the doc at the Hilltop colony. Since Denise's death and Rick shot dead the only other doctor, Alexandria has no doctor.

This is why I think with some regret that Abraham will be the one one Negan takes out. 

Denise got the arrow Abraham got in the comics.
1. Denise's death by arrow was Abraham's death in the comics. Seems like they wanted Abraham to die a more iconic death. Keeping him for Negan, perhaps?

Abraham is lucky Rosita didn't kill him when he dumped her.

2. Once a man gets their shit together in The Walking Dead, they're doomed. Abraham ditched Rosita (he did it in such a callous way, she should have killed him) after he decided Sasha was the one he wanted to be with. Happiness doesn't survive in the walkerverse.

Is this the last thing Abraham will see? 

Negan - a fitting death for Abraham? 

3. Michael Cudlitz said in an interview after Beth's death, that she didn't deserve the death she got and Abraham death by arrow in the comics wasn't a big enough death for Abraham. The actor wanted an iconic death. What more iconic death could there be than at the hands of Negan?

Soon we'll know the truth - we hope - but its The Walking Dead's capacity to have us talking about these things that makes it the biggest TV show in the world.
