The Walking Dead's seventh season may lead you to believe that it hasn't been incredibly deadly after episodes overlooking some fan favorites characters. However, taking a look back at the events of the season's first eight episodes, an intense bunch of characters and walkers have been taken their last steps.
Thanks to a Reddit user, a breakdown of each character's kill count reveals who the most deadly character in Season 7 have been.
At the bottom of the list with one kill each are King Ezekiel, Carol Peletier, Daryl Dixon, and Arat. While Ezekiel and Carol both killed a walker, Daryl and Arat are each responsible for the human deaths of Fat Joey and Olivia, respectively.
Carl is a step ahead with two human kills, and Dwight ranks just above him with two walkers kills and one human. Then, Michonne, Heath, and Morgan each add four kills to their count, though Michonne has one human to claim. With five kills, Rosita tops them, and with seven, Maggie Greene and Cyndie from Oceanside clock in next. All of their kills have been walkers.
On the following slides, we breakdown the five deadliest characters in The Walking Dead Season 7.
All eight of Sasha's kills have been walkers. They were seen in the Go Getters episodes which saw the Saviors send a burning car through the community's gates with music blaring to attract a horde of walkers.
Of course, Sasha is bent on revenge for Abraham so you can bet there are some human kills in her future.prevnext
At number four is Tara Chambler. After sitting out the first five episodes of Season 7, Tara re-appeared in episode six to kill eleven walkers.
It was Tara's adventure with Heath which saw most of the walkers being killed. The two characters found themselves on a bridge flooded with undead and had to shoot their way out until Tara ultimately fell from the bridge and into a river.
Upon washing up at Oceanside, the fun was only getting started for her.prevnext
Paul "Jesus" Rovia
Clocking in with the bronze medal on the podium for most kills in Season 7 is Paul "Jesus" Rovia. Jesus has killed a dozen walkers so far.
Using his ninja like abilities during the walker attack on the Hilltop, the level-headed member of Gregory's community kicked, sliced, and fought his way to twelve kills.
Surprisingly, his trip to the Sanctuary in Hearts Still Beating didn't earn him any human kills.
Jesus will likely earn a few more kills before the season is over, especially as he leads Rick Grimes to the Kingdom to meet King Ezekiel and prepare for war with the Saviors.prevnext
Coming in at second is the man we would usually expect to take home the gold. Rick Grimes has killed 14 walkers and 0 humans so far in Season 7.
The majority of Rick's walker kills came in the brutal Season 7 premiere when Negan tossed him out into a horde of walkers outside of the RV. He fought his way back only to be manipulated and broken down by the new menace.
Of course, for most of the season, Rick didn't have his signature python to do damage. When Daryl gave him his gun back in the midseason 7 finale, the first sign of Rick regaining power and control surfaced and we can bet he will be a whole lot deadlier when the show returns.prevnext
Of course, we all remember each of his human kills as he bookened the eight episode run with Abraham, Glenn, and Spencer's lives. In fact, these kills were some of the most horrifying and iconic of the entire series.
The walker kills, however, have come throughout the entire first half. Mowing down a bunch with a machine gun after tossing Rick in to the horde in The Day Will Come When You Won't Be quickly raised the kill count but the villain introduced a zombie to Lucille in Service and has killed several others along the way.
Alexandria can only hope his kill count stays where it is, though.prevnext
