When we first met Maggie Greene on The Walking Dead, she was a pleasant-as-heck farmer’s daughter. However, pleasant-as-heck just doesn’t cut it in the zombie apocalypse.

Perhaps that is why Maggie has evolved into a still-pleasant yet also lethal zombie-slaying machine. The woman can drop a flesh-eater with the best of them. But what was Maggie’s most brutal zombie kill?

We went to the woman who plays her, Lauren Cohan, to get her pick for Maggie’s best zombie kill, and the actress went back to season 3 for her choice. “It’s so funny,” Cohen tells EW. “I don’t even know if it’s my favorite, but the one that always sticks in my mind is from season 3, and I think that’s just because it’s from a time when Maggie went through the biggest change. And they storm into the prison and she gets up under Riot Gear Walker, and then there’s just, like, green goo. I think that’s still probably to date my most hands-on disgusting kill.”

Just the mere fact that Riot Gear Walker existed is awesome, and the way Maggie took him out was even better. So, excellent pick, Lauren Cohan! To hear Cohan discussing it and to see the kill for yourself, enjoy the video above, and make sure to also check out Melissa McBride and Steven Yeun revealing their favorite zombie kills as well.
