A fan favorite from the comics, Tyreese was a welcome presence when he joined Rick’s group in Season 3, even though he spent a lot of time not actually traveling with the group as a whole. Still, he was the quietly tortured soul that seemed as if he might be a solid backbone for the survivor core for years to come. But as is the case with many of these characters, he ended up getting bitten while trying to help someone else – in this case, Noah, who wanted to return to his family home – and his death sequence is arguably the most powerful one yet, as it featured hallucinations involving many of the show’s dead characters. His bitten arm is amputated, providing the slightest bit of hope that he would continue on. Alas, he died and temporarily caused his sister Sasha to lose her mind.
