I love free speech and will support that concept for everyone... but... if your post is 80% whining, how about giving the rest of us a break? Nobody likes whining.

That's what ignore lists are for "poof" people's posts disappear.

It would explain a LOT about the nature of the show and seemingly endless circle of decision making and actions. I haven't really dug into it, but shooting from the hip, it sure seems the characters that die have in some way absolved themselves of their former sins before they get bitten/eaten.


Take this episode for example, the leader of the supply-run team admits his mistakes in the past and actually supports Glenn's plan for clearing the exits before entering the building, then REALLY atones by telling them about leaving the others behind before...whereupon he is gobbled up literally from bottom to top as he's hanging out. Same with Noah...he makes a clear choice in the beginning of the episode to not only better himself where he is in the town but also to learn something of value to help the others for generations to come...then literally gets his face ripped off. Beth...same story...no longer needy and incapable of dealing with her own crap, comes to terms and turns the corner, then gets shot in the head for it. Tyrese...same thoughts there too.
Look back to a character like Shane. He certainly hadn't atoned for anything when he died.

I think the more likely explanation is simply that the writers want to give some of these characters a sense of closure before writing them out. Doing so also escalates the sense of hopelessness and despair for everyone left. Any time they feel like they've achieved some small bit of success or happiness, major sh*t has to go down and ruin that for them.

AND he did not even shoot him in the head, he shot multiple times in the body and barely made hit past the zombie. The rest were distracted with the door and Glen, the flare, the noise inside, the eating of that other guy, the massive explosion, etc. etc. All he had to do was walk out the door and into the truck, turn the keys and drive away. Turning the radio on is as simple as turning the knob.


He DID shoot a gun before, when he took out the truck, which he stated on Talking Dead he shoot the tank on purpose to delay them going to DC since he knew it was a lie.
and Eugene has professed his love for Tara, she is the only one that has ever stood up for him, she is lying on the table bleeding to death and he's finally realized that its time to man up. Pretty much what he said on the Talking Dead.
