Jesus Takes a Bigger Role

As mentioned earlier, there is a chance that Eric dies and that would be tragic if for no other reason than ending one of the more positive LGBT relationships on The Walking Dead. However, as fans know, Jesus is also gay and that is something that could really push him to the spotlight on the TV series. The fact that he is one of the toughest, most reliable fighters on the entire show would really enable The Walking Dead to shine a spotlight against stereotypes.

There is also the fact that, much like Daryl is a right-hand man to Rick Grimes on the TV show (and Andrea is in the comics), Jesus is the right-hand man for Maggie and is the person there to stand by her and help her gain respect and leadership in the Hilltop. Jesus is much more important than the TV show makes him appear and it is the time he is treated with respect on TV.
