A trailer teasing The Strolling Useless’s return appear to have spoiled Daryl’s and Carol’s survival, although this is not a lot of a shock. Daryl has outlasted practically each different Strolling Useless character from the early season, so it is arduous to think about The Strolling Useless killing him off right here. Carol assembly her finish within the cave appeared simply as unlikely, contemplating that her arc is one in every of season 10’s greatest tales so far, and The Strolling Useless is certain to see it by. That being stated, Carol often is the character affected probably the most by no matter it occurs in that cave. In any case, it was Carol’s personal recklessness that created this dilemma within the first place.
Who, if anybody, pays the worth for Carol’s actions? Aaron has unresolved enterprise with Gamma, who could have betrayed him, and their storyline is one which’s anticipated to proceed. One other character who appears secure is Magna, who appears like a personality that The Strolling Useless remains to be creating. As for Connie, The Strolling Useless could also be constructing towards a romance between her and Daryl, however that does not imply the present will not carry this to an abrupt finish with a stunning twist that drives a painful wedge between Daryl and Carol.

The Strolling Useless might kill off both of those two characters — or maybe each — to be able to add extra casualties to the Whisperer Struggle and arrange one other growth in Carol’s season 10 arc. So of all the probabilities, Jerry, Kelly, and Connie often is the ones in probably the most hazard. Alternatively, the midseason premiere could not kill off anybody in any respect, although a easy escape by the survivors may very well be thought to be an anticlimactic decision to the cliffhanger. Both method, there’s positive to be consequence down the road, significantly for Carol. Carol is more likely to blame herself for the incident, no matter whether or not or not anybody dies. What stays to be seen is simply how unhealthy issues will get earlier than Carol and Daryl discover a method out of the cave.
