Fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” know that their favorite character could be killed off at any time. Absolutely no one is safe, especially now that Negan has been introduced.
Season 7 is only a few episodes in and fans have already had to say goodbye to two major characters — Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) — and there’s a chance more brutal deaths are coming.
While we think the remaining core group — Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) — are safe, there are other characters that we predict could be saying goodbye to the zombie apocalyptic world sooner rather than later. Check out our list of theories below:
Although we loved how Rosita (Christian Serratos) stepped up in episode 4 by sneaking a gun into Alexandria and then asking Eugene (Josh McDermitt) to make bullets for her, her actions could result in a grim death for her. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) took all the guns from the Alexandria people and then told Rick that if he catches someone with a gun there will be dangerous consequences. Rick has no idea Rosita has a gun. If Negan finds out what she’s up to, we have a feeling that could spell the end of her character on “The Walking Dead.”
Eugene is only trying to find his role in Alexandria, but helping Rosita make bullets could end badly for him. Again, Eugene making the bullets would be going against everything Negan warned the group not to do.
We’re a little mad at Spencer (Austin Nichols) for not trusting Rick as the leader, and CinemaBlend pointed out that his defiance could cost him his life. The outlet wrote that “The Walking Dead” appears to be setting up Spencer’s comic book storyline and death. In Robert Kirkman’s comics, Negan paid another surprise visit to Alexandria but Rick wasn’t there. Rick was at The Kingdom meeting with King Ezekiel (Khary Payton), but the people of Alexandria told Negan that Rick was on a supply run.
Well, Spencer used the opportunity to approach Negan and told him that Rick should be killed because he’s not a good leader. Negan didn’t like that Spencer brought this up while Rick wasn’t around, and sliced Spencer’s stomach open with a knife.
Carol (Melissa McBride) checked out of the zombie world a long time ago. Carol has repeatedly said she wants to die, and her being alone on the road again further convinces us that her days are numbered. We know Carol can take care of herself, but she still has no idea what happened to Glenn and Abraham and is unaware of how dangerous Negan is. Hopefully, Ezekiel was able to convince her to go back to The Kingdom liked he tried to do in episode 2.
“The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
