WASHINGTON, December 5, 2016 – Don’t miss The Walking Dead tonight as ‘Sing Me A Song’ will be essential in setting up the big midseason finale the following week; and this is the show that apex the rather slow season that started with a very big bang.
As we look forward to ride that the second half of the season promises because we know our favorite zombie survival drama takes the show to the peak of the mountain, before the wild ride to the valley, and puts many of the important characters in very dangerous situations.
There have not been any deaths since we lost Abraham and Glenn but there are several characters on the same path with death.
#3. Carl Grimes – Death Odds: 0.1%
Honestly, Carl isn’t going to die. He’s a character that is just too darned important to the storylines going forward on the show. However, young Mr. Grimes is currently in a bad situation as he is in the back of a truck headed right toward Negan and The Saviors. Because of that, he earns a spot on the list.
#2. Paul “Jesus” Rovia – Death Odds: 5%
Jesus is a little more disposable than Carl, but still likely has some huge purposes to serve. He’s been a big part in developing the situation between The Hilltop and Alexandria as well as bringing Maggie back to the forefront. But, since he’s also in the truck at the moment, he deserves a place on the list.
#1. Spencer Monroe – Death Odds: 10%
If any character on The Walking Dead is a ticking clock right now, it’s Spencer. Standing up against Rick Grimes hasn’t been a smart thing to do in the past and it will likely not help the future of the Monroe family. He’s not in any immediate danger at the moment, but he will surely do something to put him or the people around him in danger very soon.
This show brings us to the point where the group has been fractured. Negan had used a unique form of psychological warfare to bring tragedy and unthinkable loss to Alexandria. The power of being the Alpha survivors has been wrested away after they thought they found safety and stability. After they had created a home and the world was theirs. They were comfortable and they were wrong to let their guard down.
The first half of Season 7 sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. We have some characters that are lost, or at least no one knows where they are.
The overall theme of the season has been starting over under a new rule – the rule of Negan. But the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s bigger, more dangerous and infinitely scarier than a herd of walkers.
Or is it. There are allies out there. Maggie will be leading the Hill Top Gang, Carol and King Ezekiel have The Kingdom. And then we have Tara’s new found group, the Waterfront group.
“Sing Me a Song” airs on Sunday, December 4th at 9:00pm ET on AMC. Join CommDigiNews Chat in the comments below.
