With a show like "The Walking Dead," it is inevitable that characters are going to die. Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick on the show, teased major deaths this season. With so many fan-favorites on "TWD," which ones will fans be saying good-bye to? There are plenty of theories.

Matt Carter of MoviePilot speculated that Bob would be one character to go. He had some stills from the trailer and his speculation made sense. Bob hasn't been on the show that long and he is still pretty much a mystery. Viewers did learn a little bit about his past last season, but it wasn't quite enough to make him a well-developed character. Even so, he is one that could easily die in season 5.

Tara is another character that fans don't know much about. She was on the Governor's team until the battle at the prison. After it was all over, Glenn took her to find Maggie. When he was reunited with her, he didn't tell anyone about who she really was. She joined the group, but is still very much an outsider. There are plenty of fans who think she is one of the characters that will die in "The Walking Dead" season 5.

In the trailer, Abraham is seen falling to his knees, about to break down and cry. He is a tough man and it would take a lot for him to get so emotional. It seems that he probably lost someone very close to him. This is one reason why some fans are betting Rosita bites the dust.

As for the characters that have been on the show since the beginning, some are wondering if Carol will die. In an interview, she revealed that she was supposed to die in season 3, but they kept her on. This was a good decision because her character has evolved so much. Being a fan-favorite, it would be disappointing to see her go. Reasons some fans think she won't last through season 5 is because the trailer didn't show her and she hasn't been seen on set quite as often as the other characters.

One person that not too many fans have mentioned is Carl. He started out as an innocent boy, but then transformed into an angry adolescent and is now a teenager. Even though his character has evolved a bit, it isn't enough to make him a major player. There needs to be more to him than just Rick's son or the kid of Team Prison. If he died, this would be enough to send Rick into a brutal, vicious killing machine. He would completely lose it, which would not only change Rick, but could change the course of the show as well.

Fans, it's your turn! Who do you think is going to die on "The Walking Dead" season 5?
