    Axel’s Character Arc Was Supposed to Be Very Different

    it’s sad that tidbits like this are more entertaining than the last few seasons before Angela Kang became show runner

    Axel was a great character, but I love the idea of him being a serial killer. I would’ve loved to see Axel take Beth out in the woods and slaughter her if that was really in the plans. I like hearing that Andrew Lincoln pleaded for him to stay also.

    That's interesting, especially how they "painted themselves into a corner". Axel got a great death, but I would have been fine with him being a serial killer. Of course, I wouldn't have wanted him to kill Beth, but since she died anyway, what difference does it make who killed her? That would have made the Hershel/Gubner dynamic a bit different, though. As it played out, Hershel was trying to be a peacemaker. While Hershel's end could have come as it did, that little smile he gave Rick before Gubner started hacking on his neck was lovely but might not have come had he just lost Beth.

    Would have made Beth so much less annoying, so it would have been cool.
    Considering the comics, I would have expected one of the prisoners to have done that with her. Not Axel though. Would have been an interesting twist, especially for post-rambo Carol.

    It's a change I'm okay with. I would've dug the serial killer thing too but Axel was a great character. I wish he lasted longer but his death is one of the best the show has ever done. No build up, no emotional bullshit, it just happens outta fucking nowhere which is pretty realistic. And if he was a serial killer he wouldn't have made it to that scene.

    Agreed. I wasn't reading spoilers at the time and Axel's death was one I didn't see coming at all. I loved Axel and in some ways wish he could have stayed around a lot longer but his "out of nowhere" death was very well done. Not to mention that if he was around much longer or still there, the writers probably would have ruined his character like they have everyone else's.

    Axel got out just before Gimple could get a hold of his character.

    Glen Mazzara and AMC fucked up so much killing off T-Dog, Merle, Milton, Axel, and Oscar so early. We should have lost Laurie and Andrea and that's it. And even Andrea is arguable. Stupid stupid stupid

    Axel as a serial killer would have been great especially since he was so likable. If they kept more prisoners alive or had some questionable people in residence at the prison they could have really made a good mystery and touched on some paranoia and distrust among the characters-perfect for an embedded psychological thriller.
    His death was terrific though. It really stunned me.

    I feel like I’m one of the few that actually liked Mazzara. S4 and S5 with Gimple were almost flawless in many ways but 7/8 was worse than anything Mazzara did
