We've read rumors about a major character dying in the second half, and even if we hadn't read that we'd be expecting at least one big death and probably several minor ones. That’s the nature of this beast.
We've seen fans speculating on who will die, with some viewers branching off from Comicbook.com's tease that "one of the main cast members who has not been killed in the comic book series" may die in the second half. There are only four people on screen right now who are still alive in the comic book series, which is still being written: Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Michonne (Danai Gurira).
However, three new characters from the comics are coming soon: Sgt. Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), and Dr. Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt). And we're also expecting to see Morgan Jones (Lennie James) again.
But everyone is vulnerable right now. Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Sasha(Sonequa Martin-Green) are still recovering from their flu. Glenn was last seen on that bus filled with prison newbies. Sasha is with Maggie and Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.), who was shot. Tyreese (Chad Coleman) is apparently with the kids, including Lizzie Samuels (Brighton Sharbino) and Mika Samuels (Kyla Kenedy) … and possibly baby Judith. Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is with Beth Greene (Emily Kinney). Rick, very beat up, is with Carl. Michonne may be on her own. Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) is also out there somewhere, and we're expecting her to connect with Tyreese's group at some point in the second half. Tara (Alanna Masterson) was also shown in the most recent promo, so she's in this mix too. We may or may not see Lilly (Audrey Marie Anderson) again, so we’ll add her just in case.
We all hope our favorites survive, but who do you think won't make it to the end of the season? Vote in the poll below, for as many people as suspect might not make it.The Walking Dead Season 4 returns with Episode 9 on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
