As viewers have noticed so far as the end of Season 6 of The Walking Dead approaches, the show is not necessarily staying with the comics.
AMC’s show, The Walking Dead recently shocked viewers with the arrow death in Season 6, Episode 14 when Abraham was not the target! That’s right. In the comics, the death that was brought to Denise during Season 6, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead was meant for Abraham.
During Season 6, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead, Darryl, Rosita and Denise took a short road trip to a local pharmacy for some drugs after Denise wouldn’t accept staying behind. Darryl and Rosita warned Denise that she wasn’t ready to leave Alexandria’s walls and not long after, Denise had a breakdown.
On their walk back to the truck, Denise find’s herself hunting for courage. Unfortunately, what started out as courage ended with her death when Dwight missed Darryl and struck Denise in the head with an arrow, an arrow from the bow that once belonged to Darryl.
Did you know that Shane was suppose to die at the hands of Carl in Season 1? That’s correct. Although Shane’s death ended quite similar in the show as it does in the comics after a fight breaks out between him and Rick, Shane sticks around to cause more drama for The Walking Dead through most of Season 2!
IGN mentions some other important differences between the show and the comics of The Walking Dead. In the show, Otis, who ends up being used as bait by Shane, and who was technically already dead in the comics, has remained around well into Season 4. In the show, Otis is killed trying to guard the fence of the prison while attempting to keep zombies out. What a difference for this short-lived character in The Walking Dead.
Another short-lived character in the show, who was around much longer in the comics of The Walking Dead is Sophia, Carol’s daughter. Walking Dead Wikia reports the show kills her off in Season 2, however, in the show, Sophia is still living in Season 7! Oh, and did you know Carol was suppose to commit suicide in Season 2? In the comics of The Walking Dead, Maggie and Glenn take over Sophia’s care after the death of her mother, at least until Glenn is bashed over the head by Negan.
With all of the twists and turns presented throughout the show, The Walking Dead has more surprises coming and the big question is, who will die at the hands of Negan? Many think it will still be Glenn, but with all the curve balls this show has thrown, it could be anyone.
