    That is the first thing I thought as well. Although STD (I just realized that) was supposed to be a short run so it might be able to work around TWD filming schedule.

    What makes you feel like that abt Sasha? She's a series original, who doesn't appear in comic, & I liked her along w/ Tyrese. I hated that they killed him :( he was a good, Solid character. Sasha was lost w/ our him. That much was clear when they were integrating into alexandria. But I like how far she's come, even her romance w/ abraham.

    I think once some characters have their little character arcs, if they are not killed off, then they just become cursory characters. That's what Sasha is. That's what half of the cast are. They just take up space and don't really contribute to the story. In my opinion. They should be killed off instead... the cast is too big.

    I don't know who of these are still alive but I think they can easily kill off:
    Tara, Rosita, Sasha, Eugene and Father Gabriel. Kill them off this season!

    And on the periphery of the kill-off list are Morgan, Carol and Maggie.

    Seriously, why is Eugene still alive?
