Ranking the cast of The Walking Dead Season 7, least to most likely to survive.
Jesus has the important role of connecting Rick’s group with the Hilltop group. He is charming, charismatic, and likable, and has the potential to become a fan favorite. If the producers ever decide to kill off resident bad boy, and current fan favorite, Daryl, Jesus would be the only character that could potentially fill the void.
9. Baby Judith
Unlike other shows, The Walking Dead is not afraid to kill off children. But, do they have the balls to kill off a baby? They only thing that could send Rick into another tailspin would be to kill off Judith, Carl, or Michonne. Of the three, Judith brings the least to the show and would leave no void, whatsoever. Judith will eventually become walker-baby food, but since Rick will already be distraught after the Negan attack, there will be no need to kill off Baby Judith in season 7.
We have not yet met Ezekiel, but the season 7 previews show us that we will be introduced to him in season 7. He will likely be a complex character in which writers will need more than one season to tell the full story of him and his tiger.
Carol is completely losing her shit, and needs to pull herself together if she plans on making it through season 7 alive. While a Carol death would send shock waves through The Walking Dead universe, the crazier she gets, the more fans may be willing to put her out of her misery. Carol will probably be separated from the main group for most of the season, but there is no way she is dying before we get to see at least one more interaction between her and Rick.
Now that we were shown the scene between Eugene and Abraham kissing and making up, we can expect one of them to be on their way out. As likable as Eugene may be, his death would not have as much of an impact on the group as Abraham’s death will. Seeing how Eugene will carry on without Abraham, however, will be a storyline all on its own.
If Daryl is going to die in season 7, it is going to be in the premiere. If he makes it through episode 1 without being bashed in the head by Lucille, he should be safe until at least season 8. Daryl’s death will be the biggest death in the history of the show, so producers will probably save it for a stand alone, shocking episode when we least expect it.
While Michonne has the cards stacked against her survival due to the fact that she makes Rick happy, she should be safe for at least season 7. Like Baby Judith, Michonne’s death will come at a time that Rick feels at ease, and will completely rock his world. Since his world is already pretty rocked at the moment, Michonne should make it through the season unscathed.
The Walking Dead has struck villain gold with Negan, and will not let him go without squeezing every drop of material out of him. Even The Governor lasted almost two seasons, so it is safe to say that Negan is not going away anytime soon.
The story of The Walking Dead is Rick’s story. Killing him off would make no sense from a production standpoint. It started with him walking up from a coma, and it will likely end with him being killed, at which point, every character we have come to know and love will be long gone, with the sole exception of his first born.
Carl is Rick’s pride and joy, and if he dies, Rick will go so far off the deep end that he will be unable to recover. If Carl died, Rick would start killing everyone and everything he could until he eventually ran out of steam and got taken down. Without Carl, there is no Rick, and without Rick, there is no Walking Dead.
