AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has taken countless characters from us over the past seven years, with some (Glenn and Abraham, we miss you!) having a much bigger impact than others (Spencer who?). If you had the power to resurrect the dead, which former character would you most want to return? After clicking through our photo gallery above of the 21 most shocking “The Walking Dead” deaths of all time, be sure to give us your choice in our poll below.
New big bad Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is personally responsible for several names on our list, including the aforementioned Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) who he murdered with his baseball bat Lucille in the Season 7 premiere, as well as Spencer (Austin Nichols) who he gutted for trying to take charge at Alexandria.
Before Negan came along, many of the dearly departed “Walking Dead” victims were bitten by walkers, which sealed the deal on their fates. That long list includes Amy (Emma Bell), Sophia (Madison Lintz), Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn), T-Dog (IronE Singleton), Andrea (Laurie Holden), Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr), Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Noah (Tyler James Williams), Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh).
And then there are the unlucky souls who were murdered by fellow humans, either in cold blood, by accident, or out of compassion. Among this group are Shane (Jon Bernthal), Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), Merle (Michael Rooker), Hershel (Scott Wilson), The Governor (David Morrissey), Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino), Beth (Emily Kinney) and Dawn (Christine Woods).
