Ed Peletier (Adam Minarovich)
Death episode: "Vatos"
How it happened: Carol's abusive husband (and Sophia's father) had already received a beating from Shane. He was recovering in his tent when walkers attacked the camp, and he was bit. Carol annihilates his body with an ax in the following episode to prevent him from turning.
Shock factor: Ed was so despicable that his death was both predictable and cheered. Losing Amy in the same episode was far more upsetting.
