Who died at the end of the last season of The Walking Dead? Danai Gurira knows, but she's not saying a word, no matter how much E!'s Marc Malkin tries to get out of her. 

"Yeah I know. I know what's happening," she told him on the red carpet at the Tony Awards. "I'll tell you this much—I know something. I know a little bit more than you." 

While Gurira, who plays Michonne and was nominated for a Tony, would admit to knowing something about that aspect of the season six finale's rather controversial cliffhanger, she's staying mum on everything else, like whether or not we'll have to watch that terrifying moment with Negan's bat all over again. 

"Suddenly, I don't know anything," she said. "Where am I?!" 

Can we just hope that means no? 

Danai Gurira, The Walking Dead


The Walking Dead caused quite a bit of conversation with its season finale, when it introduced Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his barbed wire-covered bat, and then proceeded to introduce that bat to some beloved character's head. We watched the horror go down through the eyes of the victim, but didn't get to see who that victim was, and we won't see who that victim is until the show returns in the fall. 

After the episode aired, executive producer Scott M. Gimple addressed fans on Talking Dead, defending the cliffhanger and promising that season seven would more than make up for any anger they were feeling. 

"We have to do an episode that justifies it to you," Gimple said of season seven. "We have to do something so great and so intense that you're like, OK, all right, fair play, and that's the challenge that we have. We're going to do it, we're going to deliver you something fantastic. We want you to be one of those people in that lineup. We want you to feel that suspense, that terror, and that pain, and we're going to deliver you a story next season that justifies it." 

Whose head do you think met up with Negan's bat? Sound off in the comments!

The Walking Dead returns to AMC in October.
