‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Spoilers: Which Major Character is First to Die?
AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ season 4 surpassed all our Death Watch expectations by finishing things out with a relatively low body count, but the law of averages suggests that the reaper will be dropping by season 5 on a number of occasions, whether by zombie bites or humans. We’ll have our own theories on which survivors will be the ones to bite it at Terminus and beyond, but in the meantime, has the first major death of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 been revealed?
You’re warned of potentially major spoilers for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5, as well as advised to take certain reports with a grain of salt, but where last week saw fangroup “The Spoiling Dead” offering a bit of insight into ‘The Wire‘ vet Seth Gilliam’s role in the forthcoming season, it seems yet another report from the Atlanta set may have revealed a major character death. Normally we’d dismiss any such rumors as speculation, but considering the character topped our Death Watch list last time around, we’re hard-pressed to ignore that the writing may be on the wall for one original cast member: none other than Steven Yeun’s Glenn.
We have heard from multiple sources about a possible death. Word is the death of Glenn was filmed yesterday. It’s possible it could be someone else, but multiple sources stated Glenn. Reports are the set was locked down and everyone was told the cast would not be coming out. Adding fuel to the fire: Steven reportedly left set at 2 or right around then. It’s said that Steven was hugging production members and shaking everyone’s hand while leaving.
Now, you’re warned of comic spoilers as well as potential show spoilers, but worth noting is that Glenn’s comic death proved a landmark turning point for the series, even as it arrived much later than the post-prison timeline AMC’s rendition has been floating around. Even so, Glenn’s death would seem fair game for the “remix” approach, as character like Dale also ended up on the chopping block much sooner than their comic counterparts, where Andrea and Sophia continue to live as of the latest issues.
So far, we know of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 that existing stars Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have all been upgraded to series regulars. The fifth season of AMC’s monster-drama is expected to pick up immediately after the events of season 4 finale “A,” and eventually divulge the fates of missing characters Beth, Carol, Tyreese and Judith.
Well, what say you? Might Glenn be among the first ‘Walking Dead’ season 5 cast members to bite the bullet, or is it all hearsay? Who do you think will make it out of Terminus alive? Give us your predictions for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 in the comments!
