Walking Dead: Why Negan Has To Kill Michonne

Would Michonne’s Death Caused By Negan Make Him Public Enemy #1?

Following 6 seasons of zombie-filled drama, ‘The Walking Dead is in need of a major shakeup. Walking Dead was once on par with ‘Game Of Thrones’ for being known to kill off major characters whenever they felt like it. Now, they’ve off the expendable roles in mass qualities as an attempt to shock us. The desensitized viewers of television have come to expect a high-level of surprise & brutality and ‘The Walking Dead‘ is in desperate need to hit us where it hurts. They need to destroy everything we love.

This means the upcoming villain Negan has to kill fan-favorite Michonne!

Walking Dead

Yes, comic fans…I know who is “supposed” to die if following the Walking Dead comics but that doesn’t mean we can’t have an all-out bloodbath as Negan’s introduction. The show has made drastic changes to stories from the comics and this could be a change for the better. It would also propel the character of Negan, played by Jeffery Dean Morgan, into infamy! This would instantly give the fans a reason to hate the villain; the hatred would run far deeper than one for previous villain The Governor. Not only would it anger the fans but it would throw multiple characters on the show off the deep-end.

Characters like Michonne’s new love interest Rick Grimes and his son Carl.

Lead character Rick isn’t allowed to have anything good happen to him. While he has a long-standing girlfriend in the comics, he has yet to have such luck on the show. His new romance with beautiful but bad-ass Michonne is a breath of fresh air. That’s why they need to suck the air from our lungs.

Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, is also becoming quite the star in Hollywood and Broadway. It’s something she’d need to free up her hectic Walking Dead schedule for. Gurira is by no means doing a poor job on the show. She performs the role perfectly and is vital to the story. Her leaving would send the entire show for a loop & change the dynamic for the upcoming seventh season.

The fact is, Michonne is important to the fans & the characters. Her death would cause a rebellion. That’s why it has to be Negan that kills Michonne is his introduction & the sixth season finale!

The Walking Dead‘ airs Sunday at 9pm on AMC!
