Daryl Dixon: It may be contradicting what I stated above, but I don’t think The Walking Dead will ever kill off Daryl. He’s an original character created for the show and with Rick gone, Daryl’s survival is one of the safest predictions around.

More from The Walking Dead

Maggie Rhee: I’m having a tough time with this one. We may have been treated to Maggie’s best moment to date on last weeks episode. Lauren Cohan is the star of a new show on ABC, and while it’s confirmed she’ll be taking a hiatus from the show in one form or another, I’m predicting that she survives.

How you may ask? She could pull a “Heath” or simply just choose to leave. Let Maggie live.

Michonne: Losing Rick will be a major blow to the show and for that reason, I don’t think we’ll be losing anyone too important.

Next to Daryl, Michonne is my selection for the safest character. There’s a very interesting comic storyline coming up in the future and I think the show would be wise to follow it.

Carol Peletier: Carol has long outlasted her comic book counterpart and other than Daryl, will be the only original left after Rick’s departure. I don’t think the show will get rid of her for a long time to come. T-Dog died so Carol could live, let his sacrifice not be in vain.

Negan: Again, most of these predictions come down to losing Rick Grimes. If Negan dies, what was the point of sparing him at all? No, I think Negan will have a major part to play in Season 9 and in the future of this series.

It’ll be nice to have an anti-hero around (that’s where I think we’re heading for the bat-swinging egomaniac–slight redemption).
