Walking dead is drawing close to ending its season with just 2 more episodes left. Everyone is ecstatic on how the season has been and anxious on how the season would end. We were already shocked with the recent death of Denise, who was shot with an arrow on one eye. Apparently, season 6 is all about the eye. Kidding aside, every fan probably have their own predictions and the lazy bums are turning to Reddit for those fairies and their all seeing eye. Get it?
If some of us have read the comics are at least have an idea on what’s going on there, a scene that everyone is excited about is a main character’s death by Lucille. Yes, Lucille is Negan’s handy killer tool. I had watched the scenes from the trailer of the last episode and it looks like the only choices there would be Morgan and Aaron. For me though, I have a strong hunch that it would be Morgan.
First, just like any major character death, Morgan was given such this season just like Denise did. We were so excited when he came back but got angry because his character was not likeable. He was self righteous, too hopeful, impractical and most importantly, he was against Rick’s decision most of the time. Remember what happened to the last person who was against him?
Second, he is dead in the comics. He died after being bit and infected during the swarm in Alexandria. The series let him live probably because he is to take the place of Glenn’s death. He was building a prison room last episode, which is probably for Negan (SPOILER: after his defeat) and told Rick that he was building it for him to have more choices in the future. He did not include himself in that statement which hints us that he would not probably be there when it happens.
Lastly, his demeanor tells us everything. He lives in a chaotic world where the rest of his group is battling for survival and he is just there either letting the wolves go, letting one live and capture their resident doctor, brawling with Carol and others. While his perception of people may be possible thanks to his ‘master’ who died, it is not suitable at any way with the next arc for the next season. It is gonna be an all out war between the Kingdom (not yet shown), Alexandria and Hilltop against Negan and he is just there convincing them of how people can still be good.
The last episode shows us a person lying on the ground. I am pretty sure this is Morgan. If you look closely at the clothes while he was riding a horse then you can agree on me on this. So, it could be that he is already dead by Lucille. The only thing that bothers me I guess is that it would easy to predict if we just base it from this trailer. Plus, the one who was with Negan on the last scene is a white dude with short hair I think. So, it it were not Morgan, it could be Aaron.
I could say only a few things about Aaron at this point and it would suck to kill him off this early. Not to mention, his partner is still alive. This would make him the second LGBT killed in the second half of the reason, which would tick some activists again. Also, he is still alive in the comics.
On a side note, even if I predicted Morgan to be the last death for this season, I am hoping for Daryl to die by Lucille. Yes, it would anger some fangirls but hey, what is the best way to hate the best villain the comics? Kill off the most popular character! Plus, he has just been there for so long with little group value aside from being cute and badass killer. We already have Rick for that thank you.
So what are your predictions? Let me know. Fear the walking dead will continue after the series finale so we’ll have something to talk about again. I hope this time it won’t be boring as the first.
