The Walking Dead: Who Will Die Next?

We're about due for another major death

Liam Mathews

Two things are certain in this world: taxes, and characters on The Walking Dead will die horrible deaths.

No one important has died on The Walking Dead since the premiere, though, which means that (most likely) at least one character we know is going to die in the next three episodes of Season 7A.

But who will it be? Will it be the long-missing Heath (Corey Hawkins)? Not-good-at-guarding guns Olivia (Ann Mahoney)? The nefarious Simon (Steven Ogg)? Or the annoying Spencer (Austin Nichols)?

Here's the case for each:

Heath: Corey Hawkins landed the lead role in 24: Legacy and doesn't have time to be a cast member on The Walking Dead anymore.

Olivia: She's lasted this long, but how much longer can she last, really? She's kind of incompetent. And The Walking Dead is running out of random tertiary characters to kill off. She's one of the only ones left, so her number's almost up.

Simon: Other than Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Dwight (Austin Amelio), he's the only Savior whose name we know. Negan and Dwight aren't going down yet, so if a Savior dies, it's gonna have to be Negan's right-hand man.

Spencer: The previous three might die soon. Spencer is definitely going to die soon. He's a coward with a bad attitude. The Walking Dead kills cowards with bad attitudes like you or I change underwear.

Who do you think won't live to see Season 7B?

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
