Glenn Rhee – The Walking Dead

Last Words: “Maggie… I’ll find you.”

How He Died: Beaten to death by Negan’s baseball bat, Lucille.

Why His Last Words Are So Good: Until Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) death, he and his wife Maggie (Lauren Cohan) were frequently the heart and soul of The Walking Dead. When Glenn initially gets bashed in the skull, he no doubt sustains a great deal of brain damage. However, in his last moments, his default is to reach out to his beloved Maggie and reassure her that everything will be ok. As they’ve always done in the apocalypse, he knows that they’ll find one another somehow, some way.

Whether Glenn’s last words were born from an instinctual tic or a conscious train of thought, the result is the same. With those final words, Glenn and Maggie’s love story transcended death and solidified a spot in the canon of true love stories on TV.
