‘The Walking Dead’ has returned with a bloody bang as the victim of bat-wielding bad guy Negan was revealed in the seventh season’s premiere.

The sixth season wrapped up with Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, using a game of “eeny meeny miny moe” to determine his victim, and the episode closed with him swinging his barbed-wire laced bat.

Sunday night’s premiere revealed the victim to be regular character Abraham Ford, played by Michael Cudlitz. Negan wasn’t finished. He later took his bat to the head of Steven Yeun’s character, Glenn Rhee.

The killing of two fan favorites on one of TV’s most popular shows predictably became a trending topic on Twitter. One user even thanked Negan for helping cutting down on political chatter on the social media platform.
