Speaking to TVGuide, actress Lauren Cohen reveals that Maggie will be one of the few flu survivors. “There’s a point where the number of able-bodied people is one or two,” she says. “It gets to a point where Maggie is the only person who can actually fight.”
That’s not to say that the other core members will die, but they’ll certainly be struggling with the deadly flu that’s going around. And with the number of walkers outside the prison growing, it will really give Maggie a chance to shine.
