“The Walking Dead” Should Probably Kill Eugene; Here’s How Actor Josh McDermitt Wants Him to Die

“The Walking Dead” Should Probably Kill Eugene; Here’s How Actor Josh McDermitt Wants Him to Die

This past Sunday night’s episode of “The Walking Dead” was very Eugene heavy, mostly centered on the mullet-haired character’s moral struggles inside the crumbling walls of the Saviors’ compound. We now know that Eugene knows Dwight is the mole inside the building, but he doesn’t intend on spilling the beans to Negan.

What will Eugene do next? Your guess is as good as ours.

Personally speaking, the charm of Eugene has completely worn off, leaving behind a goofy character who feels very out of place in the world of “The Walking Dead.” Worse yet, he never comes off like he’s even a real human being, as his default setting is to spout so much hard to understand nonsense that it’s a chore just listening to him speak.

Is it time for Eugene to be killed off? If you’re asking me, he has long overstayed his welcome. And if he does soon die, actor Josh McDermitt has a dream scenario.

I don’t know that there is anyone more fun to watch do a physically intense fight scene than Andrew Lincoln,” McDermitt told EW. “I told him and Greg Nicotero that IF Eugene were to die, I want to be choked out by Rick. Most actors have a “thing” — a look they can shoot to the camera, and that’s how they make their money throughout their career… I think Andrew Lincoln’s “thing” is choking people in a scene. It’s so intense you think he’s really trying to choke the guy.”

After turning his back on Rick and aligning with Negan, you’d probably find me cheering if such a death scene were to actually play out on the show. I welcome it with open arms.

    I think Eugene should kill Negan an take over, showing how smart he is and played his role and time right.

    • That’s the one thing I was thinking would make his whole plotline worthwhile. The obvious is, yes, they’re likely to kill him off soon. If it turned out he was the next “big bad” that would be the surprise shake up this show could use.

        Kinda interesting if he becomes the next big bad in “A” season finale only to be taken out and replaced in the next season premiere by the whispers.

        Kinda similar to how if and when Supervillians finally win by killing their foes and take over the earth only to be invaded by aliens and the supervillan has to start all over though in Eugene’s case he’d probably die.

    “The Walking Dead should probably kill ‘Eugene’ ” I’ll tell you how that should read….”The Walking Dead should DEFINITELY kill ‘Eugene’ ” I’m curious to know why he talks like the mumbling fucking idiot that he is, was it a personal choice by the actor or what? I’m racking my brain to think of a more irritating character on a show than he is. I would say pretty much any kid actor, but that’s a little unfair. As far as an adult actor……..

      everyone bitching about eugene’s vernacular are too stupid to understand basic language. i’d hate to see what all the plebes think of deadwood

        “Plebes”
        meaning: “a newly entered cadet or freshman, especially at a military or naval academy.”
        Don’t get it.

  • Hank_Scorpio

    Eugene should’ve been shot the moment he pulled up in front of Alexandria with the megaphone last season.

  • Aaron Eiermann

    The funny thing about smart people is that they come off as dumb or inferior to stupid people. Eugene doesn’t babble a bunch of nonsense. You people are just not able to understand him because his vocabulary is too superior for your monosyllabic brains. He is a coward though. So I say kill the coward. Whatever.

    • WALKTER

      shut up stupid

      • Aaron Eiermann

        ^ Proving my point.

  • Creepshow

    I envisioned him dying on the toilet. Because he always looks like he shit himself.

    • J Jett

      LOL!! thanx god for you Creepshow! you always make me laugh! 🙂

      • Creepshow

        It’s the truth though. The guy always looks like a grown up 6 yr old, who messed his drawers.

      “I think i done soiled my cotton briefs a different shade of color disgusting-ites, sorry !! ”

      “I’m Negan ”

      ……Gulps and looks down at the ground

      -Eugene

  • ShadowInc

    I wouldn’t kill Eugene. It will be interesting to see what becomes of him after Negan falls.

    • JackJonston24

      I would . He’s a worthless piece of shit

  • Brandon

    Eugene is my favorite character on the show. It sucks that Abe’s gone, though.

    • JackJonston24

      What ? You must have some low fucking standards !

  • Dennis Giles

    Kill the lot of ’em Gimple killed the scripts for this show seasons ago.
    Actors look bored shit-less ,gun battles are a absolute joke ,speeches,blah blah ..
    Cross over players now…R.I.P TWD ..you had so much more to offer than whats been rammed down our throats the last couple of years !!

  • RedNeoCon

    God this show is absolutely terrible.

    Way too many characters, everyone has endless guns and bullets, speeches that go nowhere, a “war” that has been going on forever, a chick who has been pregnant for like 3 seasons but never shows, and for a show about zombies it is missing one thing………ZOMBIES!

    • Eastman420

      War usually lasts a while. Not All out battle. And Maggies been pregnant for out a month maybe little longer.

      • RedNeoCon

        So in the opener when they could have shot Negan and ended it…….you’re saying there was a reason they didn’t do that?

        • Eastman420

          I would of shot him, but yeah Rick wanted them to surrender. And they probably would of hax to had Daryl dumbass missed up the plan.

  • Brad Tyler

    Yes, please… just kill him off already, he’s such a loathsome character. There needs to be a bit of a cull and bring the show back to it’s roots. I adore it, but there is way too many characters and groups at the moment.

  • Kristoffer Groves

    Eugene is annoying, but given the state of the world in TWD, it would be foolish to kill off somebody as smart as Eugene. Warriors are a dime a dozen on the show, but there are very few scientific geniuses left.
