16. Merle (Michael Rooker)
Merle was almost like a Phoenix on The Walking Dead . Until he died, the Tigers met him first in season one when he met Rick, but he did not know when they left him chained on a roof. Instead, he lost his hand and joined the governor. But everybody knows that the governor is a big @ $$ hole and he shot his once trusted allies in his chest. Daryl eventually killed the zombie Merle.
15. Denise (Merritt Wever)
Denise, we hardly knew you. Merritt Wever s character met an incredible end at the end of season six. Her death is of importance for some reasons: Denise was Alexandrin’s doctor and she was a lack of HBT character. Her escape is another in The Walking Dead ‘s troubled trend of killing minorities.
14. Gregory (Xander Berkeley)
While many fans may not be sad to see him go, Gregor’s death tells a lot about where Maggie ( Lauren Cohan ) goes as the leader of Hilltop. She stretches out her wings from under the leadership of Ricks and finds her place.
13. Abraham (Michael Cudlitz)
The first of Negan’s (19459008) Jeffrey Dean Morgan ) kills big in the season of the seven premiere, Abraham’s death was unfortunately overshadowed by Nine’s next death … as we come a little later. But it was still a pretty big loss for the group.
12. Jesus (Tom Payne)
He had the hair and beard, but the television version of Jesus never really lived in the comic book version – something actor Tom Payne was well aware of and that was a factor in his acceptance of his destiny. Jesus was killed by Whispers, the new rogue who carries the skin of zombies to blend with them. Had the show utilized Jesus as the series does, his death would be higher. However, the change from the comic source material is important.
11. Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green)
Did anyone have a colder death than Sasha’s victim in the seven-final season when she tricked the Negan in putting her in a chest, took a poison pill and surprised the big bad when he opened the case during his grand appearance outside of Alexandria’s walls by walking in the process? She may not have taken the Negan, but she gave Rick and the gang a chance to get the top so she goes down a hero in our books.
10. Shane (Jon Bernthal)
Probably the show’s first great death, Shane, was killed by his former best friend Rick, whose wife he fell in love with the post-zombie takeover, in an intense show that disproved the saying of not fighting a knife to a weapon. And after coming back as a zombie, Shane was seated by Rick’s young son, Carl. Rough twist, bro.
9. Tyreese (Chad Coleman)
It was hard to watch. Tyreese had undergone so much and became so protective and comforting in the group that it was particularly hard to see him go after being bitten by Noah’s (19459008) Tyler James Williams ) walker brother on his arm. Rick, Michonne and Glenn had almost saved him, but it was too late, and the bulls spent the episode hearing from all their dead friends and enemies, including Beth and the governor.
8. Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino)
Oh man. Just thinking about this makes us cry. Lizzie and her little sister travel with Carol, Tyreese, darling Judith and her sister Mika, but, Lizzie was not cut out for the zombie apocalypse. She thought the zombies played and were not dangerous (and kill). After killing her sister, Carol dropped her down. Lizzie’s death basically began a new era for Carol and her standing in the group.
And we never see flowers the same way.
7. Hershel (Scott Wilson)
The father’s symbol in the group survived longer than most expected. He even lost one foot! But his neck was no match for the governor and he fell in front of all his friends.
6. Andrea (Laurie Holden)
Oh Andrea. She sat in quite a pickle. After living in Woodbury and sleeping with the governor, fans turned to you. But at least she died with some dignity. After being bitten by the Milton zombie (and then taking him out) Andrea got in his head to prevent being a hiker. Her death marked a big shift between the comic book and the show.
5. Beth (Emily Kinney)
What a kind of Beth’s death was for everyone – the characters and the audience. After disappearing in season four, the viewers finally got a little Beth action during season five. She was essentially caught in a hospital despite flight attempts. But then her cavalry came up! Rick and the gang were commercial prisoners for Beth, but Dawn Lerner’s head demanded Noah returning to the hospital. He agreed, but it did not make Beth.
Beth’s death sent the team away in a new direction.
AMC  4. The Governor (David Morrissey)
After what was known forever, the governor finally met his manufacturer in the hands of Michonne … and Lilly! Michonne bumped him in his chest and left him to die in sorrow, but Lilly came and shot him in his head.
3. Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies)
Lori, Lori, Lori. Banana’s existence for some Walking Dead fans, met Carl’s mother and Rick engaged her maker after giving birth to the child Judith. When hikers attacked, Lori went into work but began to lose too much blood and decided that it was either her or the child so she had Maggie perform a C section on her and knew her end was close. Lori died after birth, but Carl laid the last nail in the coffin: a bullet through her head so she did not revive.
2. Carl (Chandler Riggs)
While Carls downfall in season eight really is one of the most surprising deaths of the show, given the distance they show has resigned from the series where he still lives, it all felt a little cheap. After maintaining a walkerbit while trying to save Siddiq’s newcomer, Carls’s death became nothing but a plot to encourage Rick to find a way to get in peace with Negan and Saviors. To say that it was a dissatisfaction with one of the longest tracks of the show (and even actors) would make it easy.
1. Glenn (Steven Yeun)
Ouch, our hearts. After the Nege took out Abraham, we thought naively that we were safe. No. He also took out Glenn and left the rest of the characters, especially Maggie (“I’ll Find You”, telling him that he broke every fan’s heart in a million pieces), his pregnant wife and viewer speechless and lethal. A fan favorite from the beginning of the series, Glenn’s loss will color the rest of the series and leave a huge gap for the fans.
