Comic Parallels

  • Leah's death is somewhat similar to Dwight's death in Issue 186. Both of them are shot in the head by someone that they (at some point) trusted above others (Daryl for Leah, Rick for Dwight) and were shot in a way where they never saw their killers (Leah through the back of the head, Dwight through the side).
