Will 'The Walking Dead' End Like the Comics Did?

The timing fits for the main “Walking Dead” TV show to wrap up with the similar final storyline as the comics had

On “The Walking Dead,” plenty have tried to lead, but few have been successful. Here we look back on all those who led others to safety — or their graves.

Gene Page/AMC

  • 14. Gregory (Alive) of the Hilltop Colony. Gregory no longer is in charge, thankfully — he was maybe not the kind of leader anyone ever needed.

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 13. Deanna (Deceased) of Alexandria. Deanna helped keep Alexandria together early on. She was a great judge of character, but did not recognize the walker threat for what it was. She died after the walls of Alexandria fell, leaving the community to Rick.

  • 12. Dawn (Deceased) of Grady Memorial Hospital. Dawn took charge of the hospital when her predecessor failed to keep people safe, but her practice of requiring forced labor in exchange for meds earned her no friends, and eventually led to her death.

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 11. Natania (Deceased) of Oceanside. Emotionally scarred by their brutal defeat at the hands of the Saviors — after which Negan had every male above age 10 executed — Natania sort of fell apart, like so many characters do, because of the trauma. 

  • 10. Gareth (Deceased) of Terminus. Gareth and his fellow Terminus residents promised weary travelers sanctuary, only to kill and eat them cannibal style. He became obsessed with getting revenge on Rick, eventually leading to his death at Rick’s hands.

  • 9. Hershel (Deceased) of The Farm. Hershel kept himself and his family safe on his farm during the early days of the outbreak, eventually offering shelter to Rick and his group. But Hershel believed that the walkers could be returned to human form, which proved a costly mistake. 

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 8. Alpha Wolf (Deceased) of The Wolves. The Wolves were a savage group who killed anyone who had something they desired. The Alpha Wolf was a good killer, but his people were ultimately wild and undisciplined. 

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 7. Joe (Deceased) of The Claimers. Joe and his group lived as nomads, taking what they want when they want. He lived by a simple code of justice, but did not bat an eye when he or his people needed to kill. He underestimated Rick, Daryl, and Michonne, getting every Claimer killed.

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 6. The Governor (Deceased) of Woodbury, Martinez Camp. The Governor was all charm and class on the outside, but his inner workings were that of a cold blooded killer. After the citizens of Woodbury abandoned him for Rick, he eventually took over another camp, and subsequently led them to their deaths at the prison. 

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 5. Jadis (Alive) of The Scavengers.  With all of her people dead now, Jadis is not actually a leader anymore. But when she was a leader, by “Walking Dead” standards Jadis was extremely reasonable for somebody who leads a group of people who live in a junkyard. And making Rick do gladiator fights with armored walkers was pretty funny.

  • 4. Negan (Alive) of The Saviors. Also no longer a leader, but when he was Negan ruled The Saviors through a combination of charm and savagery. He’s fun to watch!

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 3. Maggie (Alive) of the Hilltop Colony. Obviously, she’s much better as the boss of the Hilltop than Gregory ever was, and her pragmatism is currently a pretty nice contrast to the idealism of Rick post-Carl.

  • 2. Rick Grimes (Alive) of Alexandria. Rick is a natural leader who has guided his group through hell and back. He has led them through countless battles with the both the living and the dead is is still standing to tell the tale. But for how much longer?

    Gene Page/AMC

  • 1. King Ezekiel (Alive) of The Kingdom. His kingdom is gone thanks to the Saviors, but his legacy is still pretty solid. He kept that place going as long as he possibly could have, and he wasn’t a coward when it came time to choose sides in the war with the Saviors.
