It was a bad night for the Anderson family, as mother Jessie Anderson and sons Ron Anderson and Sam Anderson were all killed during the walker onslaught of Alexandria. Jessie and Sam were eaten by zombies, while Ron was murdered by Michonne when he tried to kill Rick Grimes out of vengeance. Before his demise, Ron managed to fire off a wild shot that struck a bull’s-eye in Carl Grimes‘ right eye. Ouch!
The fourth character to die — Alpha Wolf — was bitten by a walker, then shot by Carol Peletier as he was on his way to the infirmary with new BFF Denise Cloyd. Meanwhile, all of the remaining residents of Alexandria came together to fight back against the invasion, eventually coming out victorious.
Of these four notable deaths, Sam had the highest chance (54%) of being killed off according to exclusive Gold Derby odds that were derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you. Alpha Wolf (43%) was next, followed by Jessie (23%) and then Ron (9%).
