Your confused. The character you are referring to was not Axel.
He said that. His concern is that it may be Axel now.
Yeah, I never said that Axel in the comics did that
I hope he doesn't turn into a rapist as that would be too predictable and he has really shown no signs of him being one either, would like to get to know the character better but I fear him and the other prisoner won't be in this show long.
I'm guessing that Oscar dies during the raid on Woodbury. Someone's gotta die and i don't see Rick, Michonne or Daryl dying anytime soon.
I hope not; although former "longtimers" such as Lori, Dale, T-Dog and Shane met their end, the show needs to avoid introducing expendable new characters. It would be interesting to develop Oscar into someone who can continue to rise above his inmate status (he's already displayed some moral sense in his reaction to the hermit's death and use as zombie food) and add another wrinkle to the character dynamic.
The way I read it the first time seemed to lead me down the path that you were confused. Apologies for the confusion
His death will make room for...a surprise
One out, one in.
Hehe that's ok I could have structured the sentence better
Spoiler: Possible (likely?) answer
Fan-favorite comics character Tyreese is going to be introduced in the next episode. Oscar is likely a goner soon based on that alone.
Err, why is that? Because he's black?
Well, they killed off the last black guy just when they got a new one...
(let's hope they won't do that again)
Is this a surprise at this point, the producers are hyping it like crazy.
Well, it is set in the South.
I hope that doesn't mean Micchone is doomed. I want her around for a good long while.
Michonne and Tyreese can co-exist, but the cynical of us don't expect two black guys to be in the group at the same time.
Hollywood has conditioned us that way.
(That said, the comics later on do have two black men in the group at the same time - at least for a short while.)
Probably not, but I've always erred on the side of caution in these threads.
I was aware of the info in your spoiler, but I was thinking more along the lines of any current character meeting their end in the mid-season finale.
Spoiler: Interview hints for mid-season finale
As Lauren Cohan puts it here:
That's very ambiguously worded, but I think the implication is someone important is going to die in the mid-season finale (unless she just meant the whole Glenn/Maggie capture thing).
I think it's pretty possible that Oscar could die simply because they're raiding a heavily armed compound so somebody is probably going to die and the guys who aren't in the opening credits are most at risk. The other non-contractual members of the group - Axel, Beth, Hershel, Carol and Judith - are all sitting this raid out.
Of course contracts don't make you invulnerable, as with Lori earlier this season (while getting out of the show was the reason Shane and Dale were offered) so the series could kill someone improtant to go out with a bang. I'd hope whoever they go for it isn't Maggie, Glenn or Daryl, in that order.
In the Previews, Carl seems to be worried about a female. It doesn't make sense to off Judith "Ass Kicker" at this point (Lori died in child birth, Maggie and Glenn captured getting formula, Michonne bringing the formula). Carol just "came back from the dead", so, I think it's a good possibility Maggie's sister (Beth?) may be in grave danger.
