Tara

Tara has been a steady background player in The Walking Dead since she arrived in season 4. Except for a few standout episodes like season 7’s “Swear” she hasn’t been featured a lot. But Tara is a strong character whose loyalty and willingness to do whatever has to be done, as well as her willingness to fight when necessary, make her a huge asset to the group.

She played an integral role in getting Oceanside to give up their guns without a fight. And if Oceanside eventually joins the alliance of communities that will be because of Tara. When talking about Tara’s future on the show Alanna Masterson said:

"“I feel like what I would want to have happen in the next 100 episodes is to have Tara become even more of a soldier and to be able to help the other people that maybe aren’t as strong, and to teach them how they can be and to really just bring everybody up on an even playing field and fight some more badass zombies. And, you know, obviously get rid of Negan and his army, that’s for sure.”"

It would also be nice if Tara could have a girlfriend that actually lives through more than a couple episodes. C’mon Gimple – let Tara find some happiness for a change.
