The world of The Walking Dead is a crazy one. Any character could die at any moment. Given the current situation that Rick and the gang are in, that time could be sooner rather than later.
That brings up a good question. Which characters on The Walking Dead are the most expendable?
Here are my top 5 choices:
Yes, Beth is somewhat popular, but her coming of age story is one that we would have probably had to go through with Carl Grimes in future episodes. She’s already lost most of her family and she sometimes questions her own will to live. Also, the actress who plays her (Emily Kinney) is currently becoming a popular musician. Plus, there is already the question of her whereabouts because of her abduction during season 4.
I’m going to get some heat about this, but honestly, Daryl is one of the least interesting characters on the show. I get it, it’s a really tough guy…but that doesn’t translate into an interesting character all the time. With the changes in Rick’s demeanor, Glenn becoming a leader, Tyreese being a powerhouse and the addition of the alpha male Abraham, there might not be room for so many strong, male characters in the show.
Carol is one of my favorites on the show, but there really isn’t much left for her character on the show. She’s already dealt with what happened with her husband and her daughter. She’s been a mother figure and a group savior. Even though I love what her character has become, there isn’t much left that would surprise us about her development on the show.
This is another one that would be huge for the show. If this were to happen, the happy couple of Maggie and Glenn would be broken up and a lot of the hopes for relationships in the universe of The Walking Dead would be crushed. Not only that, but a strong male protagonist would be lost, and we haven’t really experienced that since what happened with Merle quite a while ago.
As attractive as she is, so far she hasn’t really added anything to the plot or development of the show. Initially, I expected her to be a strong, military minded female to pair with the tough Abraham, but that just hasn’t happened yet. Plus, we usually see at least one member of each group of survivors meet their demise, and I just don’t see it being Eugene or Abraham.
Who do you think will be the next survivor to meet their demise on The Walking Dead? Who SHOULD be the next to go? Let me know in the comments?
