May ‘Worry The Strolling Useless’ Season 7B Be the Present’s Bloodiest But?

[WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 13, “Sonny Boy.”]

Worry the Strolling Useless simply removed two fundamental characters in a single episode, however we’re predicting the blood received’t cease flowing there within the Tower Warfare.

Presently, there are extra characters than maybe ever earlier than who may depart the world of walkers earlier than Season 7 ends; characters have radiation poisoning, characters have switched sides, characters have lied to former Somba Negra brokers (most likely a foul transfer, Luci [Danay Garcia]). Right here, we’re discussing which of the characters at present in peril won’t stay to see Season 8.

Sadly—or possibly thankfully, relying on how bitter you continue to are over Nick’s (Frank Dillane) dying—Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) might be almost certainly to die throughout the subsequent few episodes. Whereas characters have crushed radiation poisoning earlier than, their well being hasn’t deteriorated as rapidly or visibly as Charlie’s. Plus, if the present eliminates Charlie earlier than Madison (Kim Dickens) arrives, it received’t need to navigate the murkiness relating to whether or not Madison would forgive Charlie for killing her son.

Verdict: Die. We expect Worry may need to keep away from delving into whether or not Madison would need revenge for Nick’s dying, and eliminating Charlie removes that as a possible storyline.

Wes made the error of switching sides, heading over to Strand (Colman Domingo) after Luciana (Danay Garcia) lied to Daniel (Ruben Blades). Whereas we don’t see Morgan (Lennie James) killing him for it, there are characters within the group who would—Daniel, particularly. There’s at all times the chance Wes may make a mistake or do one thing Strand doesn’t approve of and discover himself thrown off the highest of the tower, too.

Verdict: Die, most likely throughout the struggle for the tower. Wes made the fallacious alternative in siding with Strand, and there are lots in Morgan’s group who—except Wes repents and switches sides once more—may kill him for that.

Dwight and Sherry

These two have began their very own “lawful outlaws” group, however aside from that they’ve had fairly restricted display screen time in Season 7 and never a ton of growth of their (eternally tumultuous) relationship. Love doesn’t are inclined to final within the Strolling Useless world—simply ask poor June (Jenna Elfman)—so we may see one, or each, dropping their lives within the battle for the tower.

The 2 have been additionally speaking about beginning a household in 7A, and if there’s one dialog that reeks of ominous foreshadowing on these exhibits, it’s that. Few, if any, {couples} have survived it, and lots have taken tragic turns within the aftermath.

Verdict: One lives, one dies. At this level, it’s laborious to say which half of this pairing wouldn’t stay to see Season 8. Dwight (Austin Amelio) had a bigger position within the Strolling Useless comics, so it’s doable he survives—however with that mentioned, The Strolling Useless’s closing season is probably going to present that comics story to another person. Sherry (Christine Evangelista) has proven she will be reckless with regards to revenge or getting what she desires. Neither has an current Madison connection, so her return wouldn’t be a purpose to maintain Dwight or Sherry round.

We’d be shocked if repercussions of some variety aren’t coming for Luciana. On the finish of Episode 11, she made the shocking determination to mislead Daniel and inform him his late daughter, Ofelia (Mercedes Mason), is alive and contained in the tower. That’ll assist Daniel focus to take down Strand, however we’ve seen Daniel’s wrath earlier than: At one level, by chance mendacity to him about Ofelia’s whereabouts virtually received Strand killed. We will’t think about Daniel will probably be pleased with Luciana for what she’s carried out. Will he be indignant sufficient to kill her for it?

Verdict: Stay. Daniel will virtually actually be enraged together with her, however except Danay Garcia requested to be written out, we doubt Worry would jettison one of many “Seasons 1-3 originals” earlier than Madison’s arrival, particularly one who was so shut with Nick.

It’s no secret that Daniel’s well being has declined in current episodes of Worry. Whereas he appeared like his previous self at occasions in Episode 11, Luci learns that was as a result of he had one thing to concentrate on—if he doesn’t, even he readily admits his forgetfulness and confusion aren’t enhancing. When Luci lies to him about his daughter, he tells her he received’t survive dropping Ofelia once more; on condition that she’s useless and completely not within the tower, he’ll positively lose her once more earlier than Season 7 is completed.

Verdict: Stay/Die. There are compelling arguments on both facet. He may die as a result of he spelled issues out so clearly to Luci: He received’t make it by dropping Ofelia once more, and we all know he’ll lose Ofelia once more. But when he lives, it’ll be Madison’s return that saves him—as with Luci, the present won’t need to do away with a favourite character from the early seasons simply earlier than she arrives.

fear the walking dead, colman domingo as victor strand


In a simply world, maybe Victor Strand wouldn’t stay previous Season 7’s closing moments. He’s carried out too many irredeemable issues: He and his males have killed kids, thrown loads of harmless folks off the highest of a tower, lied to folks to get them to serve his mission, and many others. How does somebody come again from that? Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) was unhealthy, however even he had strains he wouldn’t cross. Typically it appears Strand and his rangers don’t even have that.

Verdict: Stay. Is it proper that Strand doesn’t pay for his misdeeds along with his life? Possibly, possibly not. However he’s gotten out of so many perilous, lethal scrapes by now that we simply can’t image one really killing him. We additionally don’t see him going when Madison’s so near returning, particularly figuring out how shut Dickens and Domingo are in actual life (and that Domingo was instrumental in bringing the actress again to the present).

fear the walking dead season 7 episode 9, alycia debnam-carey as Alicia Clark


“What’s fallacious with Alicia?” has been one in all Season 7’s central questions. A walker bit her on her arm, forcing her to amputate it herself earlier than the an infection unfold…however she won’t have gotten to it in time, since she’s nonetheless feverish and weak. If that is the results of the walker virus, Alicia is perhaps slowly turning—however it is also one other sickness brought on by the very-much-not-sterile devices she had when she “operated.” We nonetheless don’t know.

Verdict: Stay/Die. Alicia’s getting the identical verdict as Daniel as a result of there’s a lot we don’t find out about what’s occurring together with her. If she had the walker virus, one would suppose she would’ve turned by now. However even when that’s not what’s occurring, there are different ailments that, left untreated, may kill her, and he or she’s not precisely spending time resting and recovering. Would Worry pull a “Daniel and Ofelia” with Madison and Alicia? Provided that Ofelia and the circumstances of her dying have come up once more just lately, it’s doable. Alicia’s a significant fan-favorite character, although, and her mother is simply episodes away from returning. We doubt we’d lose her this season except Alycia Debnam-Carey requested to depart. It’d be an actual pity if Worry exchanged one fan favourite for one more.
