Glenn and Daryl Are Probably Still Alive on The Walking Dead

Steven Yeun and Norman Reedus played real-life heroes

Good news, Walking Dead fans: not only are fan favorites Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) probably still alive on the show, the actors who play them are good guys in real life, too.

Reedus and Yeun were riding motorcycles to the show's set in Peachtree City, Georgia, when they came upon a car accident, TMZ reports. It wasn't a serious accident, but Reedus and Yeun hung around to provide support until paramedics arrived.

But their good deed might have inadvertently spoiled a piece of the reveal coming in October's Season 7 premiere. Season 6 ended on a cliff-hanger, with villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) killing an as-yet-unknown person. Glenn and Daryl were potential victims, and TVGuide.com readers think Glenn is the most likely to have been killed. But the fact that they were spotted together on their way to the set suggests that their characters are still alive.

According to executive producer Greg Nicotero, Season 7 started shooting a week ago, and supposedly picked up with filming the death, which Nicotero says wasn't filmed last year. It's possible that Nicotero was lying when he said the death wasn't shot yet, a speculation based solely on the fact that it would be a logistical nightmare to precisely recreate the exact conditions of the last scene of the finale, and it seems unreasonable to assume a production would go through such an undertaking just to protect spoilers. And there's precedent: big shows have lied to us before. So the fact that Reedus and Yeun are still on set a week into shooting seems to indicate that it wasn't Glenn or Daryl who got their head cracked open.

So who was it? Maggie? Abraham? Is this accident a promotional stunt for Reedus' motorcycle show? I don't know what to believe anymore.
