‘The Walking Dead’ season 7: The five characters in greatest jeopardy

twdWe all know that when “The Walking Dead” season 7 premieres on AMC, we will find out precisely who Negan ends up killing with his baseball bat Lucille. However, it’d be a mistake to think that this is the only person he or his people ended up doing harm to in the episodes to come. With that being said, there are also walkers! Death follows this show around like a plague, and it feels that given where we are in the story, we’re going to be losing plenty of people.

So who are the most likely to go? We certainly have our candidates; it should be noted here that we’re talking mostly in terms of who could die over the course of the entire seventh season, and not just who is likely to die at Negan’s hand.

Glenn – Obviously, what happens in the comics to him could very well be what happens to him on the show, so it’s something to at least be aware of entering the new season. Hey, if he is in danger, could he just go and find the nearest dumpster to hide under?

Abraham – In some ways, he’s found someone in Sasha who is a source of healing for him. Now that he has that, couldn’t you make the case that his arc is relatively complete? We do think that there is some sort of spiritual closure to many characters who go at the time in which they do.

Eugene – You could say the same for him, mostly because he’s finally found a way to work into a society where he is accepted. It wasn’t easy for him to get here, and typically happiness on this show doesn’t last long.

Michonne – …Which is precisely why we think Michonne is in danger. Rick Grimes has seen so many people close to him die, and maybe having these feelings causes him to let his guard down and we lose one of the show’s most beloved characters. Now that she has opened up to someone again, Michonne has gone full-circle.

Aaron – Hey, it seems logical that we’re going to lose at least one relatively recently-introduced character, and if the show wants to promote a shocking / big character death, Aaron is among the most notable of the recent additions.
