TheWalkingDeadPool 352x245 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?

Warning: There may be comic spoilers in this post or in the comments. But please, no spoilers for unaired episodes. We will delete those if we see them.

It’s the truth. Nobody gets out of this world alive. Especially when walkers, other humans, and every other nasty thing you can think of seems out to get you.

After a slower, more character-driven start, The Walking Dead is gearing up for a finale that Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, teased as “crazy.” And in The Walking Dead world crazy usually means people are going to die.

So welcome to the Walking Dead Pool. What do you think? Who is going to be the next to go? I’m not making the call here, that’s for you to guess at. Post your guess and why in the comments and we’ll see who gets it right. And while you’re here, consider joining our forums, where great threads about such topics are made every day.


wdseason4 4 200x150 1394305575 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Rick Grimes
Rick has been with us from the start, is the closest thing to a “main” character the ensemble show has, and has survived stuff that should  have killed him already. There are also, without spoiling too much, a  ton of stories from the comics featuring Rick that have yet to be  adapted. It’s more likely that death will come at Rick’s hands, at least for a while. But the TV series is not the comic, so you never know.

carl 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Carl Grimes
Some people might want him dead, especially after his turn as a whiny teenager this season, but killing a 14-year old would be a major shock. Carl is also growing more independent and becoming a real survivor, so it would be a shame to see that cut short.

BabyJudith 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Baby Judith
The Lil’ Asskicker survived her brush with death this season already, we’ve seen that she’s alive and well. In the comic books anything goes, but would AMC allow the creators to kill such a cute baby? If any character has plot armor, it’s probably the baby.

michonne 1 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Michonne
Yeah, right, you’re probably thinking. Michonne is the ultimate survivor, a walker-slaying demon with a razor-sharp katana. And we’re just starting to get hints of her backstory. But it pays never to get too comfortable in The Walking Dead world.

daryldixon 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Daryl Dixon
Will Daryl be the “last man standing?” He’s tough as hell, and he’s experienced some real personal growth lately, but there’s something tragic about his story that an early death protecting others would fit right in with. Plus Norman Reedus is branching out into movies, such as the new Air with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

Carol 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Carol Peletier
Carol done a bad thing. A very bad thing. Maybe she did it for a good reason, but I’m not sure everyone’s going to understand. She’s joined back up with Tyreese, but what will happen if and when the truth comes out about killing Karen?

walking dead season 4 episode 13 beth 369x2451 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Beth Greene
If she isn’t killed by angry Caryl shippers first, Beth might have a chance. She’s toughening up considerably and forming a relationship with Daryl. Emily Kinney seems very serious about her music career, though.

Glenn 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Glenn Rhee
Glenn is becoming a riot-armor wearing bad-ass. But he’s also joined up with Abraham and his group, and it’s clear something isn’t right there that might put Glenn in danger.

BobStookey2 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Bob Stookey
Bob’s is very useful to the group as a medic, but that’s a bit of a strike against him because taking that away would really hurt, and the creators love to twist the knife. His alcoholism is also a weakness that might have negative consequences in the future.

walking dead season 4 episode 10 inmates maggie 368x245 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Maggie Greene
Maggie is a bit of a wildcard. Along with Sasha and Bob she’s in what’s arguably the most vulnerable group. No katana master on this team, although Maggie herself has been badass so far. She still hasn’t found Glenn or Beth, either, so you’d expect a reunion first.

TWD Cast S4 Tyreese 590x375 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Tyreese
Tyreese apparently still does not know what Carol did to Karen. When it comes out, the blowup might be huge and maybe deadly. For now, though, Tyreese has Baby Judith, and the benefits of her adorable invincibility might just rub off on him.

sasha 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Sasha
Sasha has become a strong survivor, but is her fate is linked to Tyreese? They’re currently separated. Will she ever get to see Tyreese again?

abraham 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?walking dead season 4 episode 11 claimed rosita1 162x245 200x150 1394306728 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?eugene 366x245 200x150 - The Walking Dead Pool: Who Dies Next?Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene
Something shady is going on in their storyline, and it will probably take a while to play out. Rosita is the most disposable character of the group, so if one of them goes first, it’ll probably be her.

Finally, we pay tribute to the last major character to go, as of now it’s everyone’s favorite fatherly figure, Hershel Greene.
