According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, no Main characters were predicted to die in this episode that featured the onslaught of walkers arriving at the Alexandria gates. The “No One” choice had leading 2/13 odds (87% chance) of happening Sunday night, which turned out to be correct. As for the Recurring and Minor characters, everyone in our predictions center survived this week, including all of the inept Alexandrians.
