Yay! Shane is history I’m so glad! Wait a minute…I really liked hating on Shane, now who do I focus my ire on? Time to determine the next survivor to hate on and this time it’s a woman.
Andrea? No not Andrea, she kind of redeemed herself by standing with Dale. Dale had a point but chose the wrong moment to make that point. If human society is going to survive, they are going to have to hold on to what they can of their humanity (Just understand there’s a time to be human and a time to survive). And with Shane out of the picture that influence is also gone.
Lori? She’s a manipulative bitch, but with Shane out of the picture her manipulative days are behind her, I don’t see Olive Oyl manipulating Daryl Dixon. He’s pretty smart and he sees through BS pretty clearly so he would see through her plotting with no problem.
There’s another reason I won’t Hate on Lori or Andrea, when push comes to shove they will both fight to survive. They have put down walkers before. Unlike the new target of my hatin’, the weakest link is (insert drumroll here)…Carol!
The appendix of the Atlanta survivors. She’s there but she serves no identifiable function other than being a maid and she could very easily be the cause of death for the people in the group. She is WEAK!!!
Carol is so weak she makes a limp noodle look strong in comparison. And the past few episodes she is not only weak herself, she wants company in being weak. She doesn’t want to take part in making decisions that directly impact her survival (Randall discussion), and she doesn’t want anyone else taking actions that impact her survival (Daryl’s interrogation of Randall and later the guys search for Randall).
A lot of people on Walking Dead forums want to see a Carol/Daryl romance, that’s one idea I hope gets nixed if any of the writers attempt it. If that happens everyone can kiss their rear ends goodbye. Daryl has grown up a lot and become one of the key leaders in the group; that’s baggage he doesn’t need, and it wouldn’t end well. She would either make him as weak as she is with her judgmental attitude or she would push him into becoming another Ed just to hang on to his balls. She’s already looked at him like a dog that crapped on the carpet after he interrogated Randall. Nope don’t even go there.
Carol has another issue, she won’t fight back. When walkers attack she is going to stand there cowering and waiting for someone to come save her. She’s conditioned to be a victim from years of abuse at Ed’s hands. And her many weaknesses shows that she still has a victim’s mentality. How many times are people going to come to her rescue before they die because she is to weak to do what everyone in that group has done-kill a walker? Even Carl, a little kid has a walker kill under his belt now and he’s what 10 years old?
The best thing the group can do where Carol is concerned is to let her become Zombie take out. It would save them all a lot of grief in the long run.
