Otherwise, they'd look pretty much the same, one after the other. So colorful names for the groups with some traits that make them stand out from the countless other post-apocalyptic groups.
It can't be just a bunch of people doing their best to survive, it has to be some schtick involved.
But are they fooling anyone? It's just rival group of the week or year now at this point.
Yup, this is what it is now. While I still enjoy the show somewhat, I feel like there does need to be some real shift in the narrative somehow. I know the show is really supposed to be about human nature and man vs man, but for me, I have now seen quite enough of that. Or at least I want a break from it for a bit. (Plus, come on, who is gonna watch this show with no zombies? :-)
I'd like to see our heroes in another scenario, something other than fighting the "group of the week". Maybe there is some natural disaster (fighting zombies in a hurricane, or a massive Forrest fire?), or maybe they continue moving on and find some place with actual electricity and technology (who knows, some underground government lab or something), or even a cure (god forbid).
It doesn't really matter what, I just wouldn't mind changing the narrative a bit at this point. I don't want it to end as some do, I think there are a lot more possibilities for good stuff.
