Glenn and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) were turned into a bloody, pulpy mess of dead flesh by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his barbed wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille, much to fans' horror.

"I think Glenn died in a very Glenn way," Yeun, one of the show's original cast members, said in an interview on Talking Dead on Sunday night. "Still not thinking about himself. It's appropriate that he ends there, and it's also appropriate that he kind of puts those last words out there as a final 'look out for each other.'"

In case you missed it, Glenn's final words were, "Maggie, I'll find you."

Yeun also talked about the challenges of keeping his character's death a secret for so long.

"It came with its own set of difficulties," he told host Chris Hardwick. "Going into it there was excitement in the sense of when you know something someone else doesn't know you're like, 'Yeah, I know stuff. It's cool.' Then after a while you're like, 'I don't like knowing this by myself.' And then you just dive into a hole after a while because you're not allowed to say anything. But I'm very lucky to have my castmates and my friends here to bounce my feelings off of or however I'm processing things."

"It was fun to lie to people for a minute," he added. "But after a while you just can't lie anymore so I just stopped talking to people."
