Poor, poor pitiful Axel! We were just getting to know him! He shared his backstory with Carol, and it sort of seemed like they were flirting just a tiny bit. After all, how bad can a man who conducted a stick-up with a watergun actually be?

The Governor's army attacks, spraying the prison yard with bullets as Axel's head explodes. Alas, poor Axel. We barely knew you.
