Walking Dead Death Rankings (S7 Ep1 Preview)

Welcome back to Pegboards’ Walking Dead Death Rankings!

Smell that? It’s October, we all know what that means, pumpkin spice lattes, leaves and the tortuous hell that is The Walking Dead season. And not tortuous like, ‘oh this is really solid and scary stuff they are producing’ like American Horror Story, no, tortuous like Jesse texting me every week to ask why I insist we keep watching this show.

This is the one column that Jesse and I have been (mostly) consistent with for the last 3 (!!!) seasons of The Walking Dead. Season 4 was won by, myself, Kevin. Season 5 was won by Jesse.

Finally season 6. Well going into the last two episodes I was up on Jesse 65 to 61 thanks to Denise’s demise (who?). We were excited for a lot of blood to be shed (damn we are terrible people) so we were disappointed when the show left us on a cliffhanger of an important character’s death for 7 months. We write a blog exclusively about these character’s deaths. Talk about blue balls. Alas without the true reveal of who is going to succumb to Negan’s bat we have to go ahead and call a wrap on last season’s rankings which means, I win the season. Sorry Jesse.

Moving onto the next season and this first episode is a really big moment for our rankings. We have been teased with a major character’s death for months now and we are dying to get to it. This first episode could really set one of us up to win the whole season. So let’s get to it.

(Remember, every week Jesse and I will provide rankings based on who we think will die next. The further down the list, the more likely they are to die. They get points based on where the character is on our list. For instance, if Rick dies this week then I will have four points and Jesse will have two points.)

Let’s Talk About Stranger Things

Here at Pegboards we like to imagine that you, our faithful readers, enjoy reading Jesse and I discussing the latest trends in TV, movies and sports. While traditionally we will review TV shows like Survivor, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Better Call Saul in episodic fashion, there is a new wave of TV shows that don’t work well in that format. Usually these are Netflix shows that are meant to be binged upon and then discussed. Which brings me to today’s review/discussion. The hit Netflix show Stranger Things. Take a jump with us to…Be warned that full season spoilers haunt this review much like a demogorgon.
