For those fans of The Walking Dead still fuming at the season six finale, any snippet of information about who will ultimately die in the show is likely to be gobbled up gratefully; so recent comments from the comic book’s creator Robert Kirkman are sure to send internet chatter into overdrive.
In response Kirkman did not hold back, listing seven characters who will all bite the bullet sooner or later.
“Rick, Carl, Michonne,” he is quoted as saying. “In the show, Daryl Dixon, eventually Abraham, Rosita. Rosita’s already dead in the comics. Jesus.”
That is some list, but it is interesting to note that there was no mention of Glenn, Maggie, Carol, Morgan, Sasha or Eugene.
Of course Kirkman knows exactly what he is doing every time he opens his mouth. However, with suggestions The Walking Dead will ultimately end on a relatively happy note, it will be interesting if Rick and Carl do not see things through to the end.
Kirkman has always said this is Rick’s story, while Carl is geared up to take over if his father does ultimately run out of luck, but if both Grimes men are gone from this universe before the final fade to black, it looks like being another of those hard left turns the producers are so fond of.
