Can you believe that we lost two big characters one after the other like that? Fear The Walking Dead isn’t pulling any punches. Coming only a week after we lose John Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) to Virginia’s sister Dakota (Zoe Colletti), we’ve lost Virginia (Colby Minifie) too. We’ve been with Virginia for almost two seasons now, and she’s certainly been a threat. She almost won actually, when she nearly succeeded in taking out Morgan! Thankfully, Dakota saved him. Still, it was shocking that we had two deaths only a week apart. Not to mention the fact that it was June who did it while getting justice for her husband. Then she just left! Now, she’s saying goodbye to the cast!
Minifie took to Instagram to say goodbye to the cast after the episode aired. It’s actually an incredibly kind and sweet message. She must have gotten close to the rest of the cast while they were filming. I may have had no love for Virginia, but Minifie will be missed on the show. She made a pretty great villain, one of the best of the show for sure.

Ian Goldberg, one of the showrunners, also discussed Ginny’s death with Decider. “The battle between Morgan and Virginia has been brewing since Season 5, but in a more stark way since 601. When Morgan threw down the gauntlet and said, ‘Morgan Jones is dead, you’re dealing with someone else.’ Now we knew this conflict was coming, but we also knew that there is another threat out there, independent of Virginia that we’ve been teasing since that episode as well, which is these people that are spray painting, ‘the end is the beginning.’ So just in terms of structure, we knew that the middle of the season was going to be where Virginia was going to meet her end and this other threat would rise to the forefront.”
With Virginia gone Fear The Walking Dead is set to introduce a new villain. One who may have ties to John Dorie and his past, if you ask certain fans! Did you enjoy her goodbye to the cast?
