We are less than two months away from the Season 10 Finale of The Walking Dead. While we haven’t set our odds like we did for the mid-season finale on who may die, we’ve been given a forewarning that certain doom is, well, certain for a main Walking Dead character.
The Walking Dead Universe guru and main man, Scott Gimple, may have dropped a major clue as to who may die in the Season 10 Finale. The clue really narrows it down to one character: Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride).
If you’re like us, you’re immediately thinking: Nope! They won’t kill Daryl. And you’re correct. There’s no way that this show EVER kills Daryl Dixon. As the last remaining male lead from the first season of the show, Daryl isn’t going anywhere. Also, there are a slew of indicators that Daryl is the most popular character on the show – possibly even more popular that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), based on merchandise sales and online searches.
Gimple, during the Comic-Con at home panel said, “If you look at Judith’s history of parents and guardians, they’re the ones in danger. Judith is taking care of herself fine, even taking care of RJ. Anybody who gets in that position with Judith winds up going, and she came into this world with a difficult sort of situation.”
“I’m just saying. I’m not as worried about RJ and Judith as the person taking care of them,” Gimple ended the tease.
With the disappearance or death of Rick Grimes (from their perspective) and the departure of Michonne (Danai Gurira), it certainly puts the responsibility of the Grimes children on the shoulders of Daryl and/or Carol. Daryl certainly has had more of an on-screen relationship with Judith than Carol has. As well, we all know how things go for Carol and kids.
Yet still, it feels unlikely that either character would go, given their long-running tenure on the show.
There are other potential characters who could pass away in the finale. It certainly feels like a King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) death is possible, given his current health status. Or, Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) could be a potential death possibility. The death of Father Gabriel has been predicted over and over, given his comic book character’s demise.
Take a look at the stills below. The Season 10 Finale feels like it’s the last opportunity for the Father Gabriel death to happen as close to the same as the comic book.
The one character death that certainly feels likely is Beta’s (Ryan Hurst). If that is so, then this is the last opportunity for Beta to kill Father Gabriel just like the comic book.
We’re getting closer each day and we’re certain that more and more information will be released as we get closer to the Season 10 Finale of The Walking Dead on October 4 at 8 p.m.
