While ‘The Walking Dead‘ has never shied from straying away from the source material, the latest teaser image seems to hint at the current story arc in the comic and not one that should be years down the road. With Negan about to be killing off a couple of major characters when the seventh season kicks off this weekend it almost looks like they are jumping the gun and heading straight towards introducing The Whisperers which in the comics took place years after the events which we’re currently seeing.

Now, this teaser might be playing a long game or be related to something completely different as we’ve only just met a couple people from The Kingdom and haven’t even met the other communities quite yet.

Here’s the image in question:

You’ve been warned – #TWD premieres October 23.

Now, they could just be making Negan even more sadistic than in the comics and having this outside of The Saviors actual compound. It could be being done with how toned down The Governor was but with the “You’ve been warned” and a severed head it really feels like the work of the humans who live among the undead in the comics – The Whisperers. It is precisely what they did with quite a few characters, established and not, in the comics recently.

Though I suppose only time will tell.

What do you think folks, are we about to get teased The Whisperers before an attempt to overthrow Negan even gets off the ground or is this just to show us an even more dangerous Negan than the comics had given us? Share your thoughts below!
