with the demise of Dale and Shane, there is no longer any moral/ethical diametric opposition or any underlying power struggle undermining Rick’s leadership, there is only Rick’s way and the highway. Given his newly acquired unquestionable unity of command, the group has developed into what they should have been all along, the cure to a disease, a killer T cell in a world of infection. I’m gonna watch last night’s episode in about five minutes. I can’t wait. This show is awesome.
The opposition this season is Rick vs The Governor.
It’s Dark Rick vs Darker Rick.
The Governor is what Rick can become if he doesn’t watch himself.
The Governor will be tagged with conservative themes, though that’s unfair. But it will happen.
I liked last season because of all the tension with Rick and Shane and Lori. I didn't see it as liberal propaganda. It was biblical in a way. So far, this season looks to be more about killing zombies -- exciting, maybe, but not so dramatic.
