AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is notorious for killing off major characters. Maybe they don’t take it to a Game of Thrones level, but if you’re a character on the show, you can never be entirely comfortable that you won’t get offed at the drop of a hat. While there were a fair share of fireworks during season four, the body count, at least for main characters, was relatively low—there were, however, a number of people added between season three and four that were little more than canon fodder. The most recent season ends on one hell of a cliffhanger, with most of the survivors in immediate peril, and we may now know who the first big death of season five is going to be.
It should go without saying, but there are significant SPOILERS beyond this point, both for the show and Robert Kirkman’s comic book that serves as the source material. You’ve been warned.
