Fans of hit zombie series The Walking Dead have expressed their shock after a major character was killed off in the final episode before the show’s midseason break.
Screening tonight in the UK, the surprising moment comes as Daryl, Aron and Jesus embark on a rescue mission to locate Eugene, who goes missing after being chased by a deadly herd of walkers.
After finally locating Eugene in a cellar, things soon go pear-shaped.
As Jesus bravely stays behind to fight off the herd to let the other escape, he is stabbed through the back by humans in walker marks.
Jesus actor Tom Payne has now confirmed that he won’t be returning to the series.
“I know people will be disappointed and shocked,” he told the Holywoood Reporter. “But I’m happy.”
