Andrea continues to make the wrong decisions on "The Walking Dead," and fans should be waiting for her to die. Viewers know The Governor and Merle will get what is coming to them, but still hold hope for "Blondie" to have comeuppance for her transgressions against Rick's group of survivors. The creators of the show need to come up with a memorable way for her to take her final bow.
Andrea sided with Shane when he wanted to rip away Rick's control of the group and when he wanted to leave the group to go out on his own. She refused to listen to Dale when he focused on her best interest and accidentally shot Daryl in an attempt to prove herself to the survivors. The character disregarded Michonne's warnings and believes The Governor's lies.
Killed by The GovernorThe Governor could kill her to prove to the residents of Woodbury what happens to people who cross him. The psychopathic leader could also kill Blondie to send a message to Rick about how serious the conflict is between the two groups. She placed her trust in The Governor, and it would be fitting for her to finally understand her mistakes in the last moments of her life.
Michonne cuts the ties that bindMichonne is obviously distressed by Andrea not listening to logic and being able to see through the lies in Woodbury. Fans are to assume the two characters were together for months on the run in the wilderness and that they became good friends. The sword-wielding heroine should "cut the final ties" binding her to the dangerous and naive character.
Rick does what needs to be doneAndrea symbolizes doubt in Rick's ability to lead the survivors and keep them safe. She is hotheaded and has the power to bring the group down through her inability to pay attention to those who are trying to help her. While she was physically with the group, she was never truly mentally with the group and should have been eliminated a long time ago.
The walkers get herThe creators of the show gave anti-climactic deaths to both Lori and T-Dog, so hopefully they are saving their memorable deaths for the near future. Being pulled apart by a group of walkers, similar to Rhodes' death in "Day of the Dead," would stay in people's minds for many years. Maybe her final thoughts would be about how all of her mistakes led her to that exact moment.
Andrea should kill AndreaBlondie has already attempted suicide once by trying to stay in the CDC building while it was finalizing its self-destruct mode. The creators could make her realize how wrong she has been in the past and how she pushed everyone away who tried to make her life better while gravitating toward the wrong men. She could be driven toward suicide when she realized it would be easier to take her life than to change herself.
