The penultimate episode in the current series last week saw fan favourite Darly Dixon apparently being shot by Dwight.

Actor Norman Reedus said fans "should be very worried" about Daryl, but it looks like there's an even bigger shock coming for the 90 minute finale.

Jeffrey Dead Morgan will arrive in the form of villain Negan, and his barbed-wire decorated baseball bat 'Lucille' will be making contact with a regular character.

Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd told ET that "someone is going to be facing Lucille".

Morgan added, "I don’t know if the fans are going to be ready for it, to be honest with you.

"I am excited and I am ready.  I really can't wait to kind of step into those shoes, and hold that bat, and do my thing.  I am looking forward to it."

He's also prepared for negative reactions from fans of the show.

"I am fully prepped for hate mail and everything else," he added, "So bring it".

Fellow Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan previously told ET it would be the "cliff-hangerest episode" of all time.
