There were a lot of characters who could have died, but there was one character that was destined to have a tragic end. If you have been a fan of the series, you know that the makers won’t shy away from killing major characters in the most violent way possible. So, it didn’t come as a shock when the series decided to kill one of the most important characters in the finale, but thankfully, it was not violent.

During the series finale, we saw Rosita being the biggest casualty and losing her life after a battle with the zombies. In the final episodes of the series, we saw her doing everything to find and save her baby, Coco. She was able to rescue her daughter and take her to a safe location. However, while trying to escape a group of zombies with Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), Rosita fell off of a pipe she was climbing into a mass of the undead. For a moment, everyone believed that she is dead, but she heroically emerged from the pile and fought the attackers. But, the damage was already done and she revealed a bite mark to Eugene.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Christian Serratos noted that she pitched the idea of her death to the makers of the show. While talking about the moment, the actor noted that she wanted fans to have an “emotional experience” in the finale and wanted to break the hearts of fans one last time. She added, “I just really wanted people to have that emotional experience in our finale, especially. I think a show that was about possibly losing your loved ones, you want to lose somebody at the end.
