Recently Natalie Abrams of TV Guide posted her odds for The Walking Dead: Who’s Going to Die Before Season 3 Ends?
I’ll post her odds and my thoughts. Beware there is a major spoiler if you’re not up-to-date with watching the show.
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln)
Thoughts: Rick is the star of the show. I can’t see them killing him off in the tv series unless The Walking Dead runs a long time. I could see it happening (in the comic and tv show) once Carl is old enough to survive on his own. Wouldn’t that be interesting if Kirkman had always planned for Carl to be the star?
Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs)
Thoughts: I’d say Carl is one of the safest, if not the safest of all the characters. He’s become interesting this season since he toughened up.
Beth Greene (Emily Kinney)
Thoughts: I could see her character going either way… surviving or being killed off. She’s a tough one to call.
Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride)
Thoughts: She’s slowing toughening up and her (potential) relationship with Daryl could prove interesting.
Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus)
Thoughts: Daryl is safer than Rick and possibly even Carl. His character is too popular to kill.
Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun)
Thoughts: Glenn’s days are numbered… if his character follows the path of the comic. He should be okay to last this season though.
Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan)
Thoughts: I’d be shocked to see Maggie killed off… although if they are going for shock value, she would be a good choice.
Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson)
Thoughts: I’d hate to see him bite the dust, but Hershel’s days are numbered.
Michonne (Danai Gurira)
Thoughts: Michonne is a safe as can be. I see her right up there with Rick, Carl and Daryl.
Andrea (Laurie Holden)
Thoughts: Andrea wanted to die in season two. She may get her wish in season three.
Milton Mamet (Dallas Roberts)
Thoughts: Milton is a minion of the Governor… and we all know what happens to minions. If he was on Star Trek, he’d be wearing a red shirt.
Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker)
Thoughts: If you’re caught up on watching the show, you know that Merle ended up wanting “braaains.”
The Governor (David Morrissey)
Thoughts: The Gov is going to be killed at some point… but will he make it to season four? I’d say, “Yes” but what do I know?
