This Walking Dead article contains major spoilers.

The Walking Dead season 10 has claimed many lives over its first 16 episodes. Siddiq saw his life cut short by a traitorous Dante while Earl met his end after being bitten by a walker. Laura and Gamma faced the wrath of Beta and lost, but that was nothing compared to Alpha’s death at the hands of Negan, who decapitated the Whisperer leader in retribution for season 9’s “Red Wedding.” And the original season 10 finale closed with Beta becoming one with the horde he loved so much.

But with season 10 set to return with six additional episodes, we now know that the Whisperer War was only part of the story. Plenty more terrors await our heroes in what will go down in the books as the show’s longest season ever. Are there also more deaths on the way?

At least one character could be marked for death as we go into the unprecedented 17th episode of season 10. With Maggie back in town, Negan’s days could finally be numbered. There’s a good chance Maggie won’t be happy about Glenn’s killer walking around Alexandria.

Could episodes 17-22 have some other surprises in store for viewers? We wouldn’t put it past showrunner Angela Kang to cut someone’s life short when we least expect it.

We’re keeping track of who’s still alive and safe, as well as who might be doomed, as we go into the final six episodes of season 10.

Connie (Lauren Ridloff)

Prediction: Lives

We learned at the end of “A Certain Doom” that Connie was still alive, wandering the woods in the hopes of finding her way home, which means there’s more of her story to tell, especially as she’s just run into Virgil on the road…

Lydia (Cassady McClincy)

Prediction: Lives

Ad

Lydia has lived through a lot in the last two seasons. With her cruel mother six feet under, Lydia can now begin to truly live her life. It’ll likely be an interesting arc that we’ll be looking forward to seeing in season 11. She’s probably safe as far as the rest of season 10 goes.

Magna (Nadia Hilker)

Prediction: Lives

It’s unclear just how much we’ll see of Magna in season 10C, so I’m just gonna say she’s safe.

Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura)

Prediction: Lives

Yumiko and her bow make up one of the show’s deadliest combos. She’s joined Eugene on his quest to reach Stephanie, and she’ll likely continue to be a vital part of that mission.

Luke (Dan Fogler)

Prediction: Lives

Ad

It’s unclear if Luke will even show up in one of the six episodes, which is why I’m just gonna say he’ll probably survive the season.

Kelly (Angel Theory)

Prediction: Lives

Kelly is one of the show’s most interesting characters at the moment, and it’d be a shame to lose her. Luckily, her ongoing search for Connie probably means that she’s here to stay, at least for a little while longer.

Alden (Callan McAuliffe)

Prediction: Lives

Alden doesn’t have much going on the show anymore, so he probably won’t play much of a role in these last few episodes. Maybe we’ll see more of him in season 11.

King Ezekiel (Khary Payton)

Prediction: Lives

Ad

We know Ezekiel’s days are numbered, especially with a tumor growing in his neck, but given that he’ll only be in one episode that will largely focus on Princess’ past, the King’s exit will probably be reserved for the final season.

Jerry (Cooper Andrews)

Prediction: Lives

The Kingdom’s lovable giant has seen a lot since he was forced to leave his settlement for good, including the fall of the Hilltop and a Whisperer invasion that forced the Alexandrians to run, too. He’s become a fan favorite through all of this and more, and since he likely won’t get much time on screen in these final six episodes, he’s probably safe.

Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam)

Prediction: Lives

Back in the day, Gabriel was one of the weaker characters on the show, but he eventually transformed into one of the most capable survivors in Alexandria, and has since become one of the settlement’s major leaders. He’s had such an interesting rise that it’d be a shame to see his story cut off here.

Aaron (Ross Marquand)

Prediction: Dies

Ad

Aaron has survived several tragedies and disasters, including losing an arm. But no matter what you throw at this guy, he’s still here. That said, Aaron will be the focus of one of the final six episodes, as he goes on a supply run with Gabriel. Sounds simple enough but it’s the kind of setup that could lead to a big surprise, which is why I’m predicting Aaron will be the shocking death of the final episodes.

Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos)

Prediction: Lives

Rosita hasn’t had much to do on the show in the last year. The final six episodes of the season seem focused on specific characters and Rosita doesn’t seem to be one of them. For that reason, she’s probably safe.

Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt)

Prediction: Lives

Eugene left on a quest to find Stephanie at the end of season 10, and instead found the Commonwealth, a new group unlike any the survivors have ever encountered before. Not only has Eugene proved indestructible in the past but he has a lot left to do on the show, especially if Kang follows the comic book.

Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming)

Prediction: Lives

Ad

Judith is the best Grimes character not named Rick. She’s here to stay.

Rick Grimes Jr. (Antony Azor)

Prediction: Lives

RJ rarely even appears on screen. Don’t expect to see him much in the final six episodes, but he’s not going anywhere in terms of the story.

Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)

Prediction: Dies

As I said in the intro, Negan seems to be the character most likely to make a dramatic exit in these final six episodes. Whether it’s at the wrong end of Maggie’s bow or he’s simply exiled, Negan’s story seems to be over at this point, not to mention this is around the time that he left Alexandria in the comics.

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride)

Prediction: Lives

Ad

Carol was already equipped with plenty of plot armor even before her spinoff series with Daryl was announced. With a new series dedicated to her and her best friend on the horizon, we know she’s safe.

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus)

Prediction: Lives

Obviously, this also means that Daryl is here to stay, likely until the close of the series. There’s always the chance that Daryl and Carol could be off on their own adventure before The Walking Dead comes to a close next year, but that seems unlikely when they’re pretty much the two main stars of the show at this point.
