I'm back this year, as promised. Here are my death predictions for the next season.
I have less predictions than last year, but there are bigger characters on it.
I think this season will be a bit different than season 6, with less deaths but bigger ones.
Shall we start?
CHARACTERS I'M SURE WILL DIE:
They've been foreshadowing his death since season 6, with him talking about the future and making babies and starting a new life. That's a huge red flag. Then he has a really touching 'goodbye
' scene with Eugene. Red flag again. And everything in the last scene of season 6 is pointing to him dying (as I mentioned in my detailed article about this death).

The writers were always talking about a big left turn
when it comes to the Lucille killing. And I started to think that maybe this left turn wasn't just them switching the character that dies, but adding one instead and having Negan kill two people. And then, not that long ago, genius executive producer Greg Nicotero slipped and talked about deaths
, as in plural. So it just confirmed that indeed, Negan kills two people. I think the second one is Glenn. As sad as it is, because he's one of my favorite characters and I really don't want him to die. It's inevitable.

Somewhere during the first half.
Because at least one bad guy must die, right?
I don't know. Killed by one of Team Family I guess. This one has no depth, it's just a gut feeling.

Probably the mid-season finale.
They must have one death in that episode and they'll probably build Spencer enough to kill him there. Also, it wouldn't be the first time a parent dies in a mid-season finale and their child dies in the next season's. We all know TWD it about patterns. So I wouldn't be surprised about that.
: Killed by Negan. From the look of the trailer, Spencer is pissed at Rick for letting Negan overpower them, because to him, they should've made a deal with them when they could've
. He's mad at Rick, because he endangered them all by engaging against Negan and his men. He's going to try to back-stab Rick, by going to Negan and making some kind of deal. Negan hates cowards, so he'll kill him.
CHARACTERS I THINK MIGHT DIE, BUT I'M STILL NOT SURE:
Austin Nichols as Spencer, The Next World, 6x10
This one is just a guessing game really. Heath is on this list mostly because Corey Hawkins got cast as lead in the new 24
spinoff. That might mean two things; 1) Heath will die or 2) Heath lives, but we'll see him only from time to time.
TOBIN AND/OR ERIC RALEIGH
Corey Hawkins as Heath, First Time Again, 6x01
Any time during the season really.
Because they are expendable, they are only red shirts. But, we know them, they have some sort of story, so people might be sad if they go. They can kill them without affecting the story, without killing to much of a big character and make people sad. Win win situation.
Whatever. Killed by walkers. Killed by an enemy. Either way, it doesn't really matter.
CHARACTERS I WANT TO DIE BUT PROBABLY WON'T:
Jason Douglas as Tobin & Jordan Woods-Robinson as Eric, Forget, 5x13
Because I'm so sick of his character. I'm so mad at the writers for ruining a perfectly awesome character. Character assassination 101 by TWD writers. They took a character everyone loved and cared about, a badass character capable of doing a lot of things and turned him into one of the worst characters of the series. Most of his fans aren't fans of him anymore. I hope this changes this season, but right now, I just want him gone.
CHARACTERS THAT WON'T DIE BUT SOMETHING BAD WILL HAPPEN TO THEM:
Lennie James as Morgan, First Time Again, 6x01
Because it's Daryl Motherfucking Dixon. Everyone's favorite redneck. Every fangirl's wet dream. Sure they will torture him at some point. A lot of people were speculating that he would be the one that got Lucille by Negan, but we all know it's 100% not him.
BUT! That doesn't mean Negan doesn't hurt him. I think Negan can see that Daryl is a very capable member of the group (Dwight probably mentioned him too) and he wants to hurt the group as much as he can. He already took away too strong members, why not take captive a third one? Make Rick and the group suffer even more. Daryl is wounded right now, he lost a lot of blood. Take him away and have his fate being unknown from Team Family. Mentally torture them even more.
Norman Reedus as Daryl, East, 6x15
There you go. Do you agree with any other them? Do you think I'm completely out of my mind?
Who do YOU
think will die?
Who do YOU
want to see die?
