‘The Walking Dead’ committed the biggest blunder by making Negan kill Alpha! Here are three ways in which they can bring Alpha back to life on ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 11 and save the show.
‘The Walking Dead’ was at its best last season but committed the biggest blunder by making Negan kill Alpha, even though the series again took the leverage of departing from the comics. Alpha died much later than in the comics. We aren’t saying Alpha shouldn’t be killed. She should definitely be punished since she is the most gruesome vamp TV has seen in a long while. But Negan killing Alpha was disappointing.
- The betrayal that left Alpha shell-shocked
- Three ways to bring Alpha back
- 1: Negan’s betrayal plan should fail miserably
- 2: Alpha is alive and kicking to kill Negan and Carol
- 3: Alpha would be killed by her daughter Lydia
There is someone who deserves to kill Alpha way more than Negan. The show still has a chance to redeem itself by bringing Alpha back to life. Angela Kang (showrunner) has the chance to reach the apex of the deadly drama by bringing Alpha alive in three easy steps. Before that, let’s revisit the scene when Negan betrayed Alpha to death.
The betrayal that left Alpha shell-shocked
We had already seen two major characters (Gamma and Earl) die in the course of the twelfth episode of season 10 of ‘The Walking Dead’, but the episode titled “The Walk With Us” saved the most surprising death sequence of Alpha for the last.
Negan lures Alpha to a shed by revealing that Lydia (her daughter) is with him. Dissuaded by Negan’s story of his love for his wife, Alpha decides to kill Lydia thinking that the act will free her from her only weakness (motherhood). But as she opens the door, Lydia is nowhere to be seen.
Being confused, Alpha turns back, and Negan shocks her by slitting her throat. Catching the shell-shocked Alpha, he gives her the last kiss (apparently, though!) and gently bends her to the ground, bleeding her to death. We saw the lethal Negan, taking the zombified head of Alpha to Carol, revealing that the two were plotting to get her killed.
‘The Walking Dead’ can bring Alpha back in three easy steps
‘The Walking Dead’ defied the comics by bringing in Alpha’s death sequence much later. In the comics, it was Alpha’s death that prompted The Whisperers War. But season 10 of ‘The Walking Dead’ started The Whisperer War without killing Alpha.
Since there is no hard and fast rule to follow the comics series, and the death track of a popular character on TV is usually a gimmick to pull in the audience. The return of a dead character makes for humongous viewership. Remember, Jon Snow’s death and return were a high point for ‘Game of Thrones’. Angela Kang can also follow the same strategy to rectify the mistake of killing Alpha through Negan. It will just take three easy steps to resurrect Alpha to life.
1: Negan’s betrayal plan should fail miserably
Knowing Negan’s personality, we can expect him to be enjoying the fact that his plan worked. He may perform some similar betrayal on the show. ‘The Walking Dead’ has already departed from the comics. Perhaps this time, to spice up the drama, Negan won’t best Alpha as he does in the comics and Alpha will return to kill him. Imagine the reaction of Negan when he comes to know that he didn’t kill Alpha but her doppelganger!

2: Alpha is alive and kicking to kill Negan and Carol
In the next step, we can expect a major showdown between Alpha and Carol. She will come to know that Negan and Carol together weaved the plan to kill her. Before that, the Whisperer’s queen will seek revenge on her flame turned betrayer- Negan. Alpha should be sharpening her tools to unleash her wrath on Negan and Carol.
This would make a bang-on revenge sequence in ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 11.
3: Alpha would be killed by her daughter Lydia
Who is the only weakness of Alpha? No one except her daughter Lydia. She wanted to get rid of her weakness by killing Lydia, but before that, she was beheaded by Negan. No one deserves to seek revenge on Alpha more than Lydia.
In the third step, knowing about her mother’s plan, Lydia must be heartbroken. ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 11 should show the new avatar of Lydia, who is now revengeful. The drama will reach its climax when Lydia commits matricide and kills Alpha in the Whisperers War.
This death sequence can potentially be even more chilling than the one we saw last season. What do you think? Write to us in the comments box below.
