WASHINGTON, Nov 3, 2013 — Last week’s episode was seen by some as Emmy worthy. But Glen and possibly Hershel coming down with the mysterious sickness, and Carol’s channeling of Andrea did not go over well with fans. We get that Carol has evolved from her meek first season character in order to survive, but her humanity is what sets her apart from the others.
And what was Carol’s casual jaunt outside the prison to get water about? Like Hershel, Carol displays an underlying death wish that makes us wonder how much longer both of them can last. We understand that in a zombie apocalypse death could be seen as a welcome relief to a hopeless and never ending battle for existence, but we are much too invested in these characters to see them die.
As a result of welcoming survivors of Woodbury, there are plenty of people to serve as zombie fodder without eliminating any of our favorite characters. We know the majority of the newcomers will die because we haven’t even been told how many of them there are, and for the most part they remain nameless.
Last week Daryl the fearless led an expedition to find antibiotics to battle the unknown illness that threatens the existence of the entire prison population. But will he return in time to save Glen and Sasha? Will Hershel pay the price for purposely exposing himself to the sickness?
Will “The Walking Dead” stay true to its form by killing off one or more of our favorite characters?
