The Walking Dead has a proud tradition of breaking hearts before it goes on it’s mid-seasonal hiatus. And, the big question on every fan’s mind in advance of Sunday’s midseason finale: Which one of our beloved characters is going to die before the break?
Going by midseason finale’s past, it’s a fair bet that a traumatizing event will rock this episode which looks to pull together the many strands presented over the course of the past seven episodes, including Carol and Morgan at the Kingdom, Maggie and Sasha at the Hilltop Colony, Daryl at the Sanctuary and – terrifyingly – Negan at Alexandria.
The episode is titled: Hearts Still Beating”— season 7 episode 8 of the series will likely have some major interactions between the communities with some devastating results. Negan’s unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues as other members scavenge for supplies; things quickly spin out of control. Tensions will run high and things quickly spin out of control.
Which characters are currently in the running to be offed? Based on Negan’s presence at Alexandria, it could range from a wide selection: Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Spencer (Austin Nichols), Tara (Alana Masterson), Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), Olivia (Ann Mahoney) and even Carl (Chandler Riggs).
Last week’s episode saw a showdown between Negan and Carl (Chandler Riggs), a moment comic book fans have been waiting since they heard the antagonist would be showing up; you can watch us discussing the episode’s five major talking points below.
Actor Chandler Riggs is heading to college imminently — which gives The Walking Dead a compelling reason to write its one-eyed teenage cowboy off the show for good. Add in the fact that Carl’s death would be a hell of a catalyst for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) to fight back against the villainous Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and the deck is decidedly stacked against him.
