Did The Walking Dead's Michael Cudlitz Just Spoil a Major Character's Death?
Fear the Walking Dead may be taking over this summer, but The Walking Dead will be back this fall, and will presumably continue its tradition of killing off major characters at the most gut-wrenching of times. Now, Michael Cudlitz, who plays Abraham, may have just had a PR snafu and given away a major character death with a quickly-deleted tweet.

Possible spoilers ahead!


Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene, told his fans that he has been less active on Twitter lately because has been filming the movie Middle Man, and Cudlitz responded with this ominous tweet, screenshot and shared by Spoiling Dead:

Thanks Erick ~  The original Michael Cudlitz tweet. ~Shiny

The "I had a blast working with you" in the past tense seems to indicate that they are not working together anymore, meaning that either Abraham or Eugene met his maker in season six. The tweet is even more suspicious by virtue of the fact that Cudlitz quickly changed the tweet, deleting the offending, possibly spoiler-y parts:



McDermitt was last seen filming on Friday, but my money is still on Eugene. For some reason, it seems much more likely that Cudlitz would say "I had a blast working with you" to McDermitt if the latter is the one who left the show; otherwise, why wouldn't he say it to the rest of the cast? And Abraham just seems more essential to the proceedings than Eugene, although I might be a little biased since I hate Eugene and hope he dies.

Fans of the comics would argue that it's more likely Cudlitz will leave the show, since Eugene plays a larger role in the comics and Abraham is killed off fairly early. But the show often diverges from the comic, if only to keep the fans on their toes, and Kirkman has explicitly stated that he regrets killing off Abraham before he got to face off against Negan, who hasn't been introduced on the show yet.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC this fall.
