THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS
Finally, in less than 24 hours of writing this article, we finally find out what is in store for the final episode of The Walking Dead’s final season. Theories, reveals from AMC, and countless reports online have fans completely tuned in to see what happens.
The Walking Dead has never been shy of a few character deaths in any of their episodes, flashbacks to the time when Alpha took out almost a dozen characters. However, who will die in the final episode of season 11? This list will see which characters are highly likely to meet their maker in the season finale.
Before we start, here’s your second spoiler warning, this list contains details from rumours and slip-ups from AMC themselves, so be warned.
Luke (Dan Fogler)
First on this list is Luke, played by Dan Fogler, and there is a very surprising reason why this makes sense.
In a recent batch of images released via AMC from the final episode, it seems to reveal Luke lying dead on the ground. This image was also taken down by AMC shortly after, making it pretty clear that this is the case.
In the image below, you will see a Luke-like character lying on the ground behind the main survivors.
It is highly possible that Luke has just been knocked out, he does seem to be covered in blood. However, the blood on his clothes was actually used in the previous episodes to disguise his scent from the walkers.
So, did AMC completely spoil a character’s death by accident, or are they doing all this on purpose to throw us off? Either way, Luke is clearly in trouble and we will find out soon enough what the true case is.
Rosita (Christian Serratos)
Rosita is a character who has been close to death multiple times, plus surviving her comic death in the live-action series.
In the original comics, Rosita met her end when Alpha cut her head off and stuck it on a pike. This also happened in the live-action series but not to Rosita’s character, making her possible death unpredictable up to now.
Due to online reports and rumours, we may have a possible description of how this might go down. The most consistent detail being shared around is that Rosita will die during a large fight in Commonwealth.
Some reports have also mentioned that her zombified corpse will be spotted walking around a destroyed Commonwealth nearer the end of the episode.
Christian Serratos even said herself, after surviving her comic death, that she would want her eventual death in the show to be “epic”. Hinting that she would like to see her character get a gnarly death scene as opposed to surviving the full journey.
Coco (Rosita’s Baby)
Sadly, along with the reports that Rosita will die, the details also include that Coco may join her.
Now, these online reports are all alleged of course, with no proof or confirmation which is to be expected. Allegedly, Rosita and Coco will both die together while trying to evade the crazy showdown in Commonwealth.
As mentioned, details of this are limited, leaving plenty of room to speculate as to what their death scene will involve. However, there is no point in speculating as these reports could all be fake.
Aaron (Ross Marquand)
Ross Marquand’s Aaron has been theorized to die during the final events of the season. In a recently released behind-the-scenes featurette via AMC for the final episode, some details were spotted.
Ross Marquand and a Walker Extra were seen seemingly practicing a scene where the Walker stabs Aaron in the stomach. They might have just been goofing around, but if speculation is correct, this will most likely be the variant who picked up a knife in an earlier episode.
Lydia (Cassady McClincy)
If you have been watching the final season of the show, you will know that Lydia just lost her arm due to a zombie bite. Luckily for Lydia, the arm was probably cut off before the infection set in, but there have been some potential setups for her character’s end.
The reason behind her being bit in the first place was due to her new romantic partner, Elijah, being swept away by a herd of walkers. Thankfully, Elijah did not die during this scene, however, his fate does remain a mystery in the meantime.
Elijah (Okea Eme-Akwari)
Judging by the previous character on this list, Lydia, it could be safe to assume that Elijah’s death may be coming soon too. Elijah being lost in a herd of walkers, leaving him driven away from his group, can only mean trouble.
Could they be setting up for a death scene involving Lydia and Elijah together perhaps? As always, all we can do is speculate but it definitely looks like Elijah and Lydia have quite the fight up for them.
Pamela Milton (Laila Robins)
Pamela Milton is probably the most predictable death for the finale, but some reports say otherwise. Nevertheless, she is still a worthy addition to this list as it wouldn’t be too surprising that she would be killed off.
Some alleged reports online have mentioned that she will survive though, maybe setting up for future appearances. It could be possible that AMC will want Laila Robins’ Pamela Milton to meet Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes in the future spin-offs.
The biggest question fans are pondering is whether or not Andrew Lincoln will return as Rick Grimes for the final episode. We heard earlier this year via an inside scoop that he did shoot a little something for the finale, however, who knows what they will do.
Will he return during the episode or will he return in a post-credits scene? The possibility of him appearing in the actual episode is quite low, but still possible, we will just have to wait and see if the internet breaks once the episode airs.
When Will The Walking Dead Finale Be Released?
The final ever episode of The Walking Dead will be airing on the 20th of November in the US and the 21st in the UK via Disney Plus.
