The Walking Dead Pre-finale Death Pool: Who Do You Think Is Going to Make It Out Alive?

By Jen Trolio

Mar 29, 2013

Way back in October, before The Walking Dead kicked off Season 3, before we'd even met The Governor we now know so well, we started a friendly little Death Pool and asked you to vote on which characters you thought would live to see the end of the season (apparently we should've also included showrunner Glenn Mazzara; who knew?). Fifteen episodes later, the cast is looking a bit different—T-Dog and Lori are long-gone, Merle returned only to leave us last week, and Andrea has taken on the mantle of "most-hated character." Plus there are a few new folks to consider (hi, Tyreese!).

And so, with the Season 3 finale just a couple days away, it's time to place your bets once again: There's no way we're getting through the big war without casualties. But who do you think will live, and who do you think will become zombie chow? There's gotta be at least one more "big" death on the way, right? Make your predictions by voting in the polls below, then let's hear your reasoning—as well your wishes—in the comments. 















Who do you think is gonna bite it this weekend, and why? Who do HOPE will bite it this weekend... and why?

    To say the least, TWD is not easy to predict. I enjoyed the finale, but hopefully Scott Gimple can improve some things.

    wow, episode 16 was awful

  • DavidJackson8 Apr 01, 2013

    Surprise, surprise. I was wrong about quite a bit.

    I was completely off... and I loved it ! ... that's why I love that series so much ... you never expect what's happening... LOVED IT ! can't wait for season 4

    Right? The only one I got right from the polls was Milton. It's a shame too because he would have been great with Rick's group. Good for him though in torching the zombies and trying to kill the Governor.

    I was a little upset by how Andrea went out though. She managed to free herself, but couldn't kick Zomton away or drive the pliers into his head? As badass as she's been in close quarters zombie combat before, it felt a little unrealistic that Zomton would've vested her like that.

    Still, I loved the continuity nod about the safety. Nice one, writers. I'm sad that Andrea's full potential wasn't realized, but at least it's over now. Let the healing begin.

    On that note, TWD staff, could you please stop making the women victims of poor decision making just to have them redeem themselves on death? You did it with Lori, and now you've done it with Andrea. If Maggie or Carol suddenly develop a case of the stupids next season, I'm done. Actually, that goes for the men too. Just stop.

    Almost nothing happened as expected... and I must say I am quite disappointed in the two deaths and that the one death that SHOULD have finished this season, didn't. :( I hope the next season will be better, more action packed and with more plot. I actually feel this series is getting depressing now. I don't find it realistic that so many dies. It is TOO bleak to be realistic. If this had happened in real life I am convinced less would have died.
    For a TV show, it is bad that so many of the main characters die because it loses impact with each death. With so many, it won't make an impact like it normally does in other shows. At least IMO. Other rules apply for a comic I suppose, but for TV it's not working for me.

    I was surprised at *how* they died, but it made sense. You knew it was only a matter of time before something like that happened. Besides, that final scene would only have been possible with the sort of revelation the twist provided. Although, I'm a bit worried that there may be an issue of dilution next season unless something happens between seasons or right near the beginning.

    I was actually okay with the way the major deaths were handled. They went out as well as anyone could have hoped, short of taking the Governor with them. All in all, I think they did a good job.

  • prowly Apr 01, 2013

    Wow. I was really off. Holy damn.

    The Governor has to die. Milton will probably die right after he mans up for once & does something courageous. Martinez, because we already have one Ass Kicker that's so worthy,(Daryl). Tyrese shouldn't die, for one he is a major character in the comics & he hasn't had a chance yet. But Sasha is a goner, right along with Allen, whom I just don't like. Andrea is a 50/50. As for Team Prison, more likely Hershel & Beth. Hopefully the rest of Team Prison will be ok cause want to see Glenn & Maggie being marred, Daryl & Carol finally get it on, at least kiss. Carl & Judith (Lil Ass Kicker) are 100% keepers!

    I really don't want it to happen, but I feel like Maggie is going to die. Glenn just proposed to her! There's no way the writers are going to let that happen. Plus, it'll be a good motivator to send Glenn to the deep end.

  • darshaagan Mar 31, 2013

    Herschel, Milton, Martinez and the rest of the Tyreese gang (not including Tyreese) will absolutely die. Think the governor is also a goner. The ppl I'm most unsure of are Beth and Carol, but I think both will live for now. Lil'asskicker dying would just be wrong.

  • ktfahel Mar 31, 2013

    I have a theory: If Glenn dies, Maggie and Beth will live, but Herschel will die. If Maggie dies, Glenn, Beth and Herschel will live. If Beth dies, Maggie and Herschel will live. Hey...I didn't say it was a GOOD theory!

  • prowly Mar 31, 2013

    So what you're saying is that a Greene will die, but it will be one and only one Greene?

  • ktfahel Apr 01, 2013

    As I said...I didn't say it was a GOOD theory; and it's a moot point anyway. I was incredibly wrong all around. :)
