Spoilers ahead for The Walking Dead!
Fans of The Walking Dead are very accustomed to losing their favorite characters. Between the threat of zombies and a never-ending stream of sociopathic antagonists, it often seems like anyone could die at any moment. So far, in Season 7, we’ve lost a handful of beloved characters to Negan’s wrath. And it’s likely that the latter half of the season will be an even bigger bloodbath, since Rick and his friends look ready to go to war.
Sometimes, it’s a huge shock when a Walking Dead character bites the dust. Other times, we can see it coming, thanks in large part to the comic book series on which AMC’s show is based. Given everything we know about the stories that are still coming, and what some of the actors will be up to in the future, here are the characters that are least likely to make it through Season 7 alive.
Sasha has already been through the ringer during her time on The Walking Dead. She struggled to keep it together after losing her brother and her boyfriend to zombie bites in relatively quick succession. Then, she had to watch her almost-boyfriend, Abraham, get bludgeoned to death by Negan. All of these horrific events have proven what a survivor Alexandria’s resident sniper truly is. Unfortunately, her luck may be running out.
It’s difficult to predict when or why Sasha may meet her end, because her character doesn’t exist in Robert Kirkman’s comics. But we did recently get a pretty significant clue that Sonequa Martin-Green, who portrays Sasha in the series, could be on her way out. She was recently cast as the lead in CBS All Access’s new series, Star Trek: Discovery. While it’s possible that she’ll be pulling double duty — other supporting actors on TWD have done so in the past — it’s hard to believe she’ll have the time to do so.
