    Voted Merle. Didn’t think it would be second highest (at time of this comment)

    Why isn’t the governor’s death up for vote?

    Had to choose Dale. He had my heart & his was the 1st death that really took me by surprise & drove home the message that “no one is safe!”

    I’d have chose the guy who gets his throat bit by Rick, that was the best death scene on anything I’ve ever seen

    T-Dog. That is all. Sacrifice. Bravery. T-dog, though and undeveloped character had the best death. That is all.

    Least Favorite, Abraham. Not the fact that he died, just the way it happened. Such a weak ending for such an epic character.

  13. Carly Hudson September 4, 2014 at 12:36 pm - Reply

    I cry the hardest at Lori’s death and I have watched “Killer Within” and the pilot episode more times than all the others.

    Lori was not a favorite character for me, not even a top ten, but her death hurt me so deeply. I think part of it was the fact that, like Sarah Wayne Callies had said in interviews, Lori knew that her pregnancy was a death sentance since day one. The heart break of knowing she was leaving her son and this new child to try to survive in this apocalyptic world was so well acted. Seeing the pain and anguish of trying to bring her child into the world and then when she realizes it isn’t going to work… Ughhhh! I cry the whole time!

    Lori herself, the sadness, her speech to Carl about not letting the world ruin him. Maggie’s heartbreak at having to be the one to basically kill Lori by delivering the baby. Carl, poor Carl! Having to be so brave and his regret at not having had time to make up with his mother. And then poor Rick’s reaction when he see them with the baby and no Lori. Ughhhhh!!!!

    My second biggest sobbing fit is for Hershel. Then Dale.

  15. Robert Tristani September 4, 2014 at 12:38 pm - Reply

    the best kill was when rick bit that dude throat out end of story

  16. Beth Anne Riches September 4, 2014 at 12:39 pm - Reply

    For me it was Merle. It was all about redemption for him. He realized what he had done and valiantly tried to take out the Governor to save his brother and the rest of the prison gang. That horrible moment when Daryl sees a walker feasting, and the walker slowly looks up and we see it’s Merle…just thinking about it gives me a chill. Truly a sad moment for me.

    Thought Axel ought to have been on this list. That was a gut-punch.

    How is T-Dog’s vote so low? He went out a hero. Lizzie’s death is higher than his, and yes, that is definitely in my top 5 favorite scenes, but it is in no way my favorite death.

    “Best death” can mean so many things to so many different people! Lizzie’s was most shocking and unforgettable to me. Just the way it all went down. Hershel was in a very close second. T-Dog and Merle definitely had the hero’s deaths of the group. I just can’t wait to see how they top what they’ve done! T-minus 6 weeks baby!

    NO ONE LIKES THE GOVERNOR!!!!!

    🙁 no love for mika (F@#$ U lizzie) she didint deserve that just becuse her sister is a crazy bastard

  25. Chad Spiegel September 4, 2014 at 2:49 pm - Reply

    Such a hard decision… Dale was probably the one that hit the hardest, and Hershel of course. Also, TIL about vivisection.

    Had to go with Merle. He was an absolute loser until that last fight. It was even sadder because he knew it was a suicide fight.

  28. Jamie Jones September 4, 2014 at 2:53 pm - Reply

    Hard to pick between Hershel and Lori, but decided to go with Hershel. He’s just such a kind character by Season 4 after learning from Rick and Maggie in Season 2, and he died trying to bring the two groups together.

    Plus the way he crawled away and then The Governor just came after him and finished the job… utterly brutal. Then we see his reanimated head! It’ll be hard for the show to top this one, but I have no doubt it’ll happen at some point.

  29. Golden Angel September 4, 2014 at 3:51 pm - Reply

    I voted for Merle…but there are a few others I would like to vote for. And Yes..why wasn’t The Gov’s on the list?

  30. Richard Wicks September 4, 2014 at 4:18 pm - Reply

    Either Jaqui & Jenners death from TS-19 (a scene I like to call “on my terms”), or Dale raising his head slightly to a sorrowful Daryl’s gun in Judge, Jury, Executioner.

    Martinez had a pretty good death scene also .

  32. Dubshack September 4, 2014 at 8:02 pm - Reply

    I almost voted Sophia until it hit me that technically, we never saw her death. We only got confirmation that it had already happened. Then I considered Lizzie, who everyone hated for her part in the Prison’s fall and her sister’s death. It was more Carol’s moment, anyway. That left Herschel, because of what that death represented. It was pretty clear after the pandemic at the Prison he wasn’t going to be able to handle much more. But much of his role was redeeming and building up Rick’s role as leader and trying to help him become who he needed to be… First fighting the impulse to become the new Shane, then trying to bring him back when Lori’s death broke him. Then trying to help him become the father Carl needed him to be. When Rick started arguing that they could all live together, Herschel is smiling because his journey is over and he’s actually succeeded in his task; he gets a brief glimpse of the Rick we see in All-Out-War, the Rick who fights for everyone’s survival. He knows his girls will be safe with him, and that no matter how much worse things in the world get, Rick is the man to bring things back. Herschel’s death, while tragic, was also full of hope, not just for him and his family, but for all humanity. (Plus it was very Ben Kenobi)

    I think the Governor’s not on there for two reasons: One, everyone would vote it #1 cuz we loved seeing that asshole bite it after what he had just done to Hershel, and #2 the whole list is people who always were or at one time were protagonists, so they wanted us to vote on the best even though we hated seeing (mostly) them all go.

    I am disappointed, I thought Dales death was more popular

  35. Winter Hope September 5, 2014 at 7:56 am - Reply

    @Scotty…I’m hoping you’re asking that so if we voted for it, it would be because we loved the idea he was taken out of other misery! 🙂

  36. Winter Hope September 5, 2014 at 8:00 am - Reply

    The saddest death for me was, Hershel. 🙁

  37. JW Coombs September 5, 2014 at 10:41 am - Reply

    Wow, how can Hershel possibly be winning over Merle? I though this poll was for “Best Death”.

    That’s Merle without a doubt, he had a good death. Easily the best, and most honorable of all of them. Not only did he put a dent in the Governor’s militia, he completely redeemed himself, and saved his soul, and set his brother free. That was a great death.

    Hershel? But you knew it was coming. I voted for Sophia because NO ONE saw that coming.

      Funny you would say lol (not trying to toot my own horn I swear) earlier in the day of that episode I said to my friend “Watch Sophia have been a walker in the barn the whole time” I was still pretty surprised it was true when I saw it that night though!

    Where is Andrea, she is the saddest death

  40. Stacey McGee Castellanos September 5, 2014 at 10:32 pm - Reply

    Although I didn’t care for for Andrea, I feel she deserves to be on this pole… She really went out with a bang! 😉
