The Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead is quickly approaching. With just three weeks left until the highly-anticipated finale, fans are finding out that the AMC hit is about to have one of its darkest episodes ever. With the arrival of Negan, Rick is about to lose some of his closest allies and, at least, one of those deaths will happen as Season 6 comes to a close.
The Inquisitr has been warning The Walking Dead fans that the Season 6 finale is not going to end on a good note. Negan is coming, and that means people will die. Many thought the worst villain to square off against Rick and his group of survivors was The Governor played by David Morrissey. While he was a pretty disturbed guy, it turns out Negan and all his psychopathic tendencies will put The Governor to shame.

Many of The Walking Dead cast members have talked about the Season 6 finale and how they felt about it. So far, all of them have agreed that the highly anticipated arrival of Negan in just three weeks is actually more terrifying than fans are prepared to deal with. Melissa McBride, who plays Carol on the AMC hit, weighed in on her take after reading the Season 6 finale’s script.
“It was so very dark,” Variety reported that McBride says about the Season 6 finale’s script. “I couldn’t say anything after I had finished reading it. I felt like I had dropped into a blackhole.”
Does this mean Carol might be one of Negan’s victims on April 3 when The Walking Dead Season 6 finale airs? Forbes suggested something like that might take place. Now viewers already know that Carol pulled some Daryl-level moves when she tricked the Saviors’ captors who were holding Maggie and herself hostage. By the end of Season 6, Episode 13 titled “Same Boat,” Maggie and Carol were reunited with Rick, Glenn and Daryl as well as the rest of the survivors. After Carol tricked and then killed another group of Negan’s people, will he come after her now?

Last year, Robert Kirkman said there was no way he could kill off Carol. “The Carol that’s in the comic was my attempt to show just how broken an individual can become from the zombie apocalypse,” Kirman said at New York Comic Con in October last year. “The Carol in the show, which is a much better character let’s be honest, actually is made stronger by all the more horrible things that happen to her in the show. Killing her would definitely not … we can’t do that.”
Does Kirman’s statement still hold true and do TWD fans trust him not to steer them wrong on the AMC hit’s plot? In recent weeks, Carol has started to look a little less stable than normal. It seems she might feel a little guilty for Sam’s death after giving the kid such a hard time. Sure, he was hard to like but Carol has been a mother and she was pretty horrible to that one, a move that is out of character for her.
Some TWD fans are pointing at Carol’s character arc as proof that her character may be next in line for death. When The Walking Dead first started, Carol was timid and weak, having submitted to the abuse of her now-deceased husband Ed. In the six seasons where Carol has remained alive, she has become one of the toughest members of the group. Carol solidified her role as a real survivor even after Rick exiled her from the prison only to meet back up with her again after it was lost. In recent weeks, Carol has begun to act more human again while trying to process all she has been through since the beginning. She even dropped her guard long enough to have a romantic moment with Tobin.
