Yes that's right fans, there will be no more fake deaths on The Walking Dead - now they're just killing people for real.
I jest, but it seems we will never be put through the 'is he/isn't he' torturous rigmarole that was 2015's Glenngate. I mean, who didn't believe (for a hot second, at least) that Glenn was a total gonner after watching the below scene:

The Walking Dead has begun to make steps back towards its "No one is safe" mantra, which was initiated with aplomb in its latest episode, 'No Way Out'. Not only did we wave goodbye to several characters (lol, Sam), but also the show stayed true to issue #82 of the comic book and Carl brutally took a bullet to the eye.

The show is certainly upping the anti at the moment and now Alexandria is safe (in relative terms, obviously), we're gearing up for the predicted arrival of Negan and his Saviors. Could this mean more character-teases and death scares then?
Talking to the Huffington Post, Chandler Riggs sets the record straight:
"There's not going to be another fake-out, like you believe a character is dead and they come back. And it’s like, "Just kidding!" That’s not going to happen again. No way. I do think there are some big and exciting moments, and they're going to shock a lot of people."
Bring it on, AMC!
