The Walking Dead 9 episode 15 kills off three main characters as infamous spike scene arrives

The Walking Dead producers have stunned fans by delivering the show's bloodiest episode in years.The penultimate outing of the AMC series’s ninth season saw one of the most infamous comic book moments immortalised on screen as the communities finally reunited for the fair, an event that has been teased for several weeks now. *Major spoilers follow – you have been warned* extras.Fans have long been expecting another character death to roll around before the end of the season – but they didn’t expect the latest episode to mark the end of the line for three main cast members.The arrival of The Whisperers’ leader, Alpha (Samantha Morton), earlier this season set wheels in motion for a gut-wrenching sequence that reveals her disturbing method of marking out the group’s territory: by placing decapitated heads on a fence of spikes.In the closing moments of episode 15, Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Siddiq (Avi Nash) and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsurra) come face to face with the severed heads of Enid (Katelyn Nacon), Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Henry (Matt Lintz), the adopted son of Carol and Ezekiel (Khary Payton).The biggest death out of these is Tara. Masterson has appeared as a regular on the show since its fourth season. Nacon joined just one season later, while Lintz has been one of the leading characters since the show introduced a six year time jump last year. What happens? Much of season two's opening half is spent looking for Sophia, the missing daughter of Carol (Melissa McBride). Turns out she was locked up in Hershel's barn as a zombie all along. What happens? When Carl (Chandler Riggs) guns down a deranged Shane (Jon Bernthal) to protect his father, viewers were shocked to see him turn into a walker despite not being bitten, leading to the revelation that everyone's infected with the virus and will turn, whichever way they die. What happens? Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) goes into labour at the very moment a walker siege breaks out at the prison. Unfortunately, she doesn't make it through the procedure leaving son Carl to be the one to put a bullet to her head. That it came in the same episode which saw T-Dog (IronE Singleton) die didn't help matters. What happens? The Governor makes his dramatic return for a showdown at the prison after he captures Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Hershel (Scott Wilson). Rick attempts to reason with him – but The Governor starts a war when he proceeds to decapitate poor old Hershel instead. What happens? In a standout episode from the show's fourth season, Carol is forced to take drastic measures when young teenager Lizzie murders her sister Mika in the belief that she'll live on as a zombie. Realising Lizzie's depraved mind would endanger those around her, Carol puts a gun to the young girl's head and, telling her to "look at the flowers," pulls the trigger, fighting back the tears. What happens? Ambushed by a group of redneck peadophiles, Rick takes matters into his own hands Ambushed by a group of redneck peadophiles, Rick takes matters into his own hands – by taking a chunk out of the leader’s neck before gutting another and mercilessly stabbing another in the stomach. It’s one of the more shocking moments from a character whom, at this stage of the show, blurred the lines between heroism and villainy. What happens? The threat of Terminus is cemented when we disocver they haven't just kidnapped Bob (Larry Gilliard, Jr) but that they're slowly eating him body part-by-body part. What happens? Beth (Emily Kinney) is kidnapped and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital managed by Atlanta Law Enforcement. Forced to reside there against her will, the group – including Rick and Daryl (Norman Reedus) – eventually find her, only for Beth to be accidentally shot in the head by her captor. The worst thing? Her sister Maggie (Lauren Cohan) had just arrived outside. What happens? With an innumerable number of walkers catching up with the group on their way back to Alexandria, Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Nicholas find themselves trapped in an alleyway. Climbing onto a dumpster, the two are surrounded by the undead with no discernible escape. Nicholas draws his gun, utters a "Thank you" to Glenn before shooting himself in the head, his flailing body pulling Glenn into the pit of walkers below. Despite the episode leading you to believe he died, it emerges four episodes later that he managed to crawl away as the walkers feasted on Nicholas' corpse leading to fan furore. What happens? Season six returned from its mid-season break in typically dramatic fashion when an iconic moment from the graphic novels came to life: Carl takes a bullet to the eye. What happens? Following the stress of Carl surviving a bullet to the eye, Rick and Michonne realise they have more than just friendship in common. It was a welcome deviation from the comics that disarmed a number of the show's fans, and has been a relationship that's continued to shape the DNA of the series to this day. What happens? Season seven opened in brutal form as we discovered it was Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) at the opposite end of Negan's baseball bat. "Suck my nuts," the soldier growls as the Saviours' leader brings Lucille raining down on his head until nothing remains but a pulpy mess. What happens? ...that wasn't all. Negan decides to punish the group once more after getting clocked round the face by Daryl. Without expectation, he thwacks Lucille round the head of poor Glenn. With his eyeball popping out of his head, he manages: "I'll find you, Maggie" before Negan proceeds to finish the job, ending Glenn's life. What happens? In a moment that comic book readers never expected to manifest on screen, we meet Shiva – a living, breathing tiger belonging to the Kingdom's leader, Ezekiel (Khary Payton). Carol summed it up best: "I don't know what's going on in the most wonderful way." What happens? Having had a near-miss with a walker episodes before, fans were left blindasided by the reveal that Carl, in fact, giot bit by the walker and was slowly succumbing to his wounds. It's been the biggest deviation from the comics and one that fans were unanimously upset by. What happens?
