Remember about this time last season on , when we had just witnessed Negan kill...someone, and we had to wait all summer long to find out who it was? The months that followed were pure hell, filled with waiting, more waiting, and then reading theory after theory while we waited some more.

Almost a year later, ends next Sunday, so you know what time it is?

No, not time for another theory about who will die. Instead, let's have a little fun and talk about who we want to die in the finale. Mind you, none of these will happen, of course, unless decides he wants to one-up his dumpster diving scene, or that Season 6 finale cliffhanger.

But hey, we can always hope!

Let's just start off with the obvious:

6. Maggie Kills Gregory

If you're familiar with the comics, you know there's a good chance something might be going down between these two, and soon. In the books, Gregory tries (and fails at) poisoning Maggie, who in turn has him hanged. Not only did pregnant Maggie save Gregory from not one, but two walkers in the penultimate episode, “Something They Need,” but it was right after cowardly Gregory contemplated coming at her with a knife while her back was turned.

For Maggie to get rid of Gregory, we would need her to either be in charge of The Hilltop, or a lot closer to it than she is now. His time is coming in , for sure.

5. Shiva Kills Simon

Or really, Shiva can eat pretty much any Savior and make our day. Negan, Jared, Lucille...just make sure she doesn't get any splinters.

There are two things that tell us Shiva's days are numbered: the comics and the cost of having a tiger in a show, even if it is CGI (which we know is not exactly The Walking Dead's strong suit). There's no doubt that she'll go out in a blaze of glory, though, and here's hoping she takes out the second biggest asshat, Simon.

4. Daryl Kills Dwight

Didn't have to Photoshop that one, thanks to the preview from the finale next week.

Daryl gets some alone time with Dwight, so there's about a one percent chance of one of them not making it out of that cell alive. Maybe two percent, now that Dwight seems to have seen the error of his ways. Nobody ever survives too long on The Walking Dead after that happens. However, with Dwight's story being such a huge part of the , it doesn't look like we'll get to see Daryl get revenge for Denise just yet. Or his bike. Or his jacket. Or his crossbow and duffel bag.

Damn, Dwight.

3. Morgan Kills Jared

Actually, this is the one that has the most chance of happening. But seeing how the finale seems to be shaping up, saving the big fight for Season 8, Morgan probably won't get his chance at avenging Benjamin's death just quite yet. You know Jared's days are numbered, though, just like Simon's.

2. Rick Kills Negan

That gif says it all. But it ain't happening. Unless AMC is going to be paying to play his not-so-evil twin, Tegan, in Season 8, seeing how he's already signed up for another season. Give it time, though, my bloodthirsty friends. When finally kills Negan, it will be glorious.

And the death you've all been waiting for, but definitely won't see happen Sunday...

1. Michonne's Sword Kills Carl's Hair

Just a little off the top, if you would, Michonne. And the sides. And the back and front. And if you could, turn back time and magically heal his eye. Or just kill him. You could do that, too.
