Who will die in The Walking Dead season 6 finale? Keep track with us with our list of who lives and who dies!

There are Walking Dead season 6 spoilers ahead.

The Walking Dead season 6 finale is upon us, which means that there's at least one big death headed our way. Throughout this bloody season, we've seen lives abruptly ended while others were spared. The season finale will see the arrival of Negan, The Walking Dead's greatest villain, which means we're bound to see at least one big death right off the bat...Who will finally bite the bust in the season finale? 

We're keeping track of who's died already this season. Plus, we make predictions for the rest of the characters, too!

Glenn (Steven Yeun)

Prediction: Lives

Result: ALIVE!!!

Carter (Ethan Embry)

Prediction: Dies

Result: Dead

Paul "Jesus" Monroe (Tom Payne)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Tom Payne's casting on the show is fairly recent, as it leaked online a few weeks ago. Rumor has it we won't even see this character from the comics until the midseason finale, so he's probably safe for at least half the season. That said, we think he'll make it to season 7, based on what we know from the comics. No spoilers here, though.

Heath (Corey Hawkins)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Heath is another one of those comic book characters who we know enough about to mark as a survivor for this season. Of course, we never truly know when the show decides to take characters from the comics. We have our fingers crossed for Heath, though. 

Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam)

Prediction: Dies

Result: Lived

No one is exactly calling Gabriel a fan favorite these days, right? 

Morgan Jones (Lennie James)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

They made such a fuss about Morgan returning to the show last season with those little interludes during every premiere and finale that there's no reason to believe this guy will die this season. Right? Why give a guy a grand entrance if you're just going to pull the rug from under him? Then again, this is The Walking Dead...Nah, we think he'll at least make it to season 7. Then he's a goner.

Aaron (Ross Marquand)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Aaron was a nice comedic foil for the season when it needed it most. Rick's march of the dead (good title for a new Romero movie?) was too bleak to deal with. I guess the question really is: how much of Aaron are we even going to see this season? After everyone got to Alexandria, the recruiter seemed to take a backseat for good...

Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Eh, do we really care what happens to Rosita? She's never quite been a main character and barely shows up enough to be a supporting one. We think she'll be in the background for quite a while. At least until the zombies find her...

Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Eugene is indestructible. Every time he's faced a dangerous situation, whether it's at the mercy of a horde of walkers or cannibals or a rifle, he always hobbles his way out of trouble somehow. The mullet can never die!

Sgt. Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz)

Prediction: Dies

Result: Lived

On the other hand, Abraham is on a path of self-destruction. Ever since his mission was suddenly ended by Eugene's revelation that there was no cure in Washington, the guy has been a pretty hopelessly violent wreck. He takes on hordes of walkers on his own and somehow comes out alive against all odds. He also drinks too much. This guy is gone by midseason, we think. 

Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson)

Prediction: Dies

Result: Lived

We're not sure we understand what she's doing on the show to begin with, but somehow she survived last season. Still, we think season 6 is her last.

Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green)

Prediction: Dies

Result: Lived

Another character who's lost too much and not dealt with it well. She lost Bob and Tyreese halfway through season 5, and ever since arriving to the civilized Alexandria, she's not been able to adapt to her new way of life. It doesn't help that she likes to lie down on zombie corpses during her spare time. We'd say she's gone by midseason. 

Judith

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

AMC WILL NOT KILL A BABY...Right?

Carol (Melissa McBride)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

If there was a character we expected to die last season, it was Carol. She's already had quite the arc, as a victim of domestic abuse, a survivor, a banished utilitarian, a killer of children, and a savior. Carol has worn every hat in the book, and if she didn't die last season when she found herself trapped in that hospital in Atlanta, we'd say she's safe for at least another season or two. Let her make some cookies and threaten children a little while longer.

Maggie (Lauren Cohan)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Maggie is sort of moving into the role of diplomat alongside Deanna. She probably won't see too much action this season. And if she does, Glenn will get himself killed for her.

Carl (Chandler Riggs)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Is Carl even still on this show?

Daryl (Norman Reedus)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

This badass fan favorite is never going to die. At least not this season...or the next. File this guy under immortal. 

Michonne (Danai Gurira)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Do you even have to ask?

Rick (Andrew Lincoln)

Prediction: Lives

Result: Lived

Okay, doomsayers. Get over it. Sheriff Rick has a new lease on life, and he isn't going anywhere. Not while he can mercilessly put a bullet right between your eyes. And he's the ubermensch, so...

Oh, and how can we forget about our favorite character this season...
