Who Dies in the Season 3 Finale of The Walking Dead!
It’s almost as hard to believe that we are facing the end of another season of The Walking Dead as was the conclusion of last week’s episode wherein Merle (Michael Rooker) has a change of heart about delivering Michonne (Danai Gurira) to the Governor (David Morrissey) to ‘play’ with. Merle instead went on a suicide mission with the intent of killing the Governor thereby protecting his little brother, Daryl (Norman Reedus). As you might recall, Merle did take out eight of the Governor’s men using both weapons and zombie helpers, whom he rather inventively recruited. Ultimately, the Governor got the best of Merle, killing him and leaving him to turn (see below).
With the final episode of Season 3 The Walking Dead almost upon us, questions remain about who will next die. We’ve already been warned that there will be a high body count, not unusual for the show, but the questions that seem most important to viewers is WHO WILL DIE?
For starters, it seems very likely that the Governor’s surviving Woodbury-ians will certainly die in large numbers. Many of them have been seen but barely heard, rendering them little more than redshirts–but will Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and his sister Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) make it? Hard to say, but I’m going to guess Tyreese lives, Sasha dies.
Regarding Rick’s group, sad to say, it seems that among the most painful and plausible losses would be Hershel (Scott Wilson). Now that Rick is regaining his senses, losing the voice of reason seems like something The Walking Dead showrunners would do to maximize our pain. Since Hershel, during his prayers with both daughters (to paraphrase) declared he would do anything for them, my guess is that in an attempt to save one of them, he is killed. If it is Beth (Emily Kinney), both he and she may succumb. If Maggie (Lauren Cohan), then Maggie at least, will survive. In addition to the prayer foreshadowing was his blessing of Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) desire to marry Maggie and Glenn’s statement to Hershel that he ‘finally understood’ the meaning of the pocket-watch that Hershel gave him back on the farm.
Finally, will the Guv survive? I’m going with ‘yes’ because he has not created enough havoc yet. He may very well scurry off with a surviving Martinez, perhaps to take time to put together another harder, meaner version of Woodbury and may come after Rick’s group at some point in season 4.
Note that these are all guesses based on watching the show and integrating little bits from the comics; none of what I’ve written are in any way spoilers. Not this week, anyway.
