The Walking Dead Seemingly Confirms Fan Theory With Another Death

The Walking Dead Seemingly Confirms Fan Theory With Another Death

Beware of the spoilers!!!

AMC's gory zombie show has been battling with HBO's Game of Thrones over how many essential or loveable characters they can kill off each season.

The Walking Dead made no apologies for opening season seven with a gruesome double killing at the hands of Negan with his signature barb wired baseball bat, which saw the demise of poor Glenn.

Episode 13, Bury Me Here, saw young Ben bleeding to death after being shot. Richard was the intended body for the bullet by rest assured he gets strangled to death later in the episode.

The murder was sparked by a disastrously pathetic reason: there was one melon missing during a supply drop off from the Kingdom to the Saviours.

The Saviours haven't hid the fact that they'd like to see him dead and Richard uses that to his leverage when he deliberately leaves out one melon. He believes his plan will work so well that he digs his own grave, puts his dead daughter's backpack inside and leaves a sign ominously saying "bury me here."

Dun, dun, dunnnnnnnnnn!!

If you're scratching your head about who Benjamin is then rest assured you haven't been missing massive character developments with him. He quotes a deep line from Morgan's book The Art of Peace, "If I injure my opponent, I injure myself."

The episode continued to show how tense things can be when the world ends - it also seemed to confirm a fan theory.

Youtuber BrokenRobot3000 predicted a month ago on his channel that Benjamin would be killed off to cause Ezekiel and the Kingdom to join the war against the Saviours.

Mr BrokenRobot3000 also points out The Walking Dead uses a 'death speech' usually before someone dies. Richard got to explain the reason behind #melongate: the loss of his daughter and his realisation that the Kingdom had to be forced into fighting.

Let's see how the rest of the season plays out and whether Richard's self-sacrifice was worth it!
