I don't think Eddie will be dead, both because he appears to be a fan favorite, and because Wyatt's story ends with one of them abandoning the other. There is too much potential drama in the abandonment storyline for that not to resurface in the sequel. At the very least Eddie survives to have a confrontation with Wyatt about it.
Of course being The Walking Dead, I don't think Eddie's long term prospects are good. :cool:
