Warning: This article contains massive “The Walking Dead” spoilers for the “Thank You” episode. Read at your own risk!
Poor Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) may have started out as a pizza boy, but he ended as a hero. Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead” proved to be the end of the road for the fan-favorite character, who was devoured along with Nicholas (Michael Traynor) by a massive hoard of walkers. Did you predict that Glenn and Nicholas would both be killed off? If so, you should be taking part in our weekly prediction contest. Hurry — make your “The Walking Dead” predictions for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so get started by scrolling down to predict which character will be killed off next.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Glenn’s death was a huge shocker as he only had 16/1 odds (6% chance) of being the next Main character to be killed off. Meanwhile, Nicholas had 9/2 odds (18% chance) of being the next Recurring character to die, suggesting our readers weren’t quite as shocked about his demise.
Congratulations to our reader SamEckmann for earning the top score in this week’s contest. He’s one of three contest entrants to reap perfect 100% accuracy predicting all of the questions for Episode #6.03, titled “Thank You,” though he broke the tie with his high 20,300 point score thanks to using his special 500 and 200 point bets wisely. If eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
This reader’s winning predictions were that Glenn would die amongst the group of Main characters, that Nicholas would die from our list of Minor characters, that no Recurring characters would die, that more than 10 walkers would die, that a walker would bite someone and that there would be no flashbacks.

If the majority of readers think Rick Grimes will die, that means he’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the candidates who don’t receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
