The Walking Dead Countdown: Top 2 “Good Riddance” Picks

A little harsh, I know, but hear me out:

 Ed_Peletier

2) Ed

Wife beater, glutton, scumbag– Who could miss this pig? (Remember how Shane pummeled him? Man that was sexy.)  I almost forgot Ed was even around at some point, mainly because of how well Carol has managed without him, even with the loss of her poor little Sophia. Yes, this pick is just so obvious, I’ll admit I only mentioned him to fill the spot before I introduce my #1 in this category…

CharactersTWDS3-Andrea

1) Andrea

I could almost hear some of you gasp. While I’ve encountered some people who would agree with me, I know many liked Andrea. I mean, she was a force to be reckoned with, a determined woman, a go-getter. I could appreciate a character with all of those qualities. But this bitch was annoying! Let’s begin with the first moment I realized I couldn’t stand her: After Dale convinced her to flee the CDC with them, saving her life, she reacted so ungratefully. I mean, she was downright rude. I understand that she was distraught over losing her sister, but she let her rage out on the wrong person, a man who was not trying to control her (as she falsely accused) but rather just trying to get her to see how valuable her life really was. Then later, her hormones drew her to side with Shane in some of the most inopportune times, and we all know where else those hormones landed her–and for no reason because right when she could’ve really helped everyone by killing the Governor as he lie sleeping, she chickened out! The same woman who demanded she be included when going on dangerous missions later cowered at a crucial moment that would’ve ultimately saved many lives. I’ll admit–I softened up to her towards the end of Season 3. I saw that she meant well. I noticed she had begun to really “see” what was going on, and she was beginning to make better decisions. But then, she died.

The Walking Dead Countdown: Top 3 Missed Characters

Need I say “SPOILER ALERT?”

3) Dale 534314-dale_horvath_03

He had a way with keeping things under control, don’t you think? He saved Andrea from herself, even though she was completely ungrateful. And he kept a close eye on Shane, knowing very well something was “off” about him. Poor Dale. What a way to go.


 

 

 


2) Merle

walking-dead

Okay, so he was an enormous pain in the ass, what with his testosterone-heavy, aggressive and impulsive ways, but did it not melt your heart to see the love between him and Daryl? And he did show Michonne some mercy. He was scary at first, but we sure got to see his softer side before he turned.

 

 

 

 

 

1) Shane a_560x375

A true representation of “survival of the fittest,” until his death that is. It was obvious Shane would do whatever he had to do to survive–Otis learned that the hard way–and to protect the ones he loved, such as Lori and her (and his?) baby. Yes, after a while, it became really easy to hate him. He was out of control, and he would’ve probably turned into a major threat… Oh, but that body! How could you not miss that? And now that the Governor has proven to be such an evil villain, I can’t help but wonder if Shane would’ve proven to be more of an ally than an enemy to our group of survivors.

The Walking Dead Countdown: 4 Most Lovable Walkers

The Walking Dead Season 4 premiers on AMC this Sunday, October 13th, at 9pm! And with four days until the big day, I took a moment to consider four of my favorite walkers thus far:

1) Sophia

sophia-choice-walking-deadPoor little Sophia. Who didn’t cry when she staggered from behind that barn door?

2) Bicycle Girl

The_Walking_Dead_Bicycle-_GirlShe’s been known as the first walker Rick encountered, desperately dragging her torso towards him, hoping for a bite.

3 & 4) Michonne’s Boys

6a00d8341c630a53ef01630309126b970d-600wiFor a long time I wondered who these boys might be. I read an excerpt of the graphic novels and discovered that Michonne’s boys are in fact her boyfriend, Mike, and his best friend, Terry. After they became infected, she locked them up, and when she discovered that the walkers would not attack each other, she hacked off their arms and jaws and kept them on leashes to aid in her escape.
