10 Great Kill-Faces From The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is not a perfect show. The pacing is weird, with some subplots taking forever and others just zooming by, and the characters are underdeveloped at best, completely interchangeable at worst. But there is one thing the show does flawlessly. And that is kill-faces. The characters on The Walking Dead are a murderous bunch, killing fellow humans and dangerous zombies several times per episode. And everyone makes amazing faces while doing so. Here are ten great kill-faces from the show so far, but know that there are hundreds and hundreds more where these came from. Spoilers abound, duh.

Carl

Carl's kill-face is exactly the same as his regular face, because Carl is secretly an ice-cold murderer who will never develop a healthy system of morality on account of growing up in a horrible apocalypse surrounded by mostly terrible people. Sorry, Carl!

The Governor

Ole Mr. One Eye has many great kill-faces, but this most recent — and horrifying — entry was the poutiest.


Andrea

R.I.P. Andrea.

Rick

Rick, too, has a bunch of kill-faces, most more aggressive than this one, but this is his Shane kill-face, and thus the most formative.


Carol

Carol, on the other hand, does not have a ton of kill-faces.

Daryl

Poor Daryl.

Glen

Glen killed the shiiiiit out of that zombie. Sneak attack!

Beth

Confession: I have seen every single episode of TWD and had absolutely no idea what Blonde Girl's name was. Her name is Beth.

Maggie

Maggie has some of the best kill-faces of anyone. She'd have the best if not for one other character.

Michonne

Unequivocal winner. Best kill-faces.
