According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, no Main or Minor characters listed in our predictions center were predicted to die in this episode, which ended up being correct.

As for the Recurring characters, a whopping 42% of our readers predicted that Deanna would die after being bitten, giving her leading odds of 27/20. The last we saw of the infected mayor, she was shooting walkers in the upstairs hallway with no means of escape, and since our question asks who will “appear” to die, Deanna fits that bill.
