22. Dwight

The introduction of one of the comics' most important characters happened so stealthily (via what seemed at time like a one-off episode, last season's "Always Accountable") that even die-hard fans didn’t recognize that they'd just met the man who'll play such a major role in the Negan/Saviors storyline. Season Seven has fleshed Dwight (Austin Amelio) out a lot more, making his original appearance all the more tragic in retrospect. He and his wife Sherry could’ve allied with Daryl back then. Instead, he's ended up divorced, physically scarred and back at the Sanctuary working as a loyal accomplice to a monster – but with a lot more story still to come.
