Skip to comments.“Walking Dead” grumble thread: They flipped the script
Posted on 04/03/2018 10:28:20 AM PDT by rktman
Lot going on last night, starting with a role reversal for the two male leads. Whos the soft-spoken guy mourning a loved one who regrets seeing so much death around him? Why, that would be
Negan? And whos the ruthless monster whod lie to the enemys face to save his own skin and then murder them in cold blood once their backs are turned? That, of course, would be
Rick? The script, it has flipped. Its either a bold commentary on the hard reality of situational morals when civilization has broken down *or* the writers got bored with these two jabronis running in their same little characterological circles week after week.

Did anyone else notice when Rick took the letter Carl wrote him from the drawer - the letter beneath his had “Negan” written on it?
Yeah, Karl wrote one to both of them. Rick already read the one to Negan.
Carl - There can only be one leader.
Tara got the “clean” arrow from Dwight instead of Rick, too.
They play fast and loose with it all.
In war, and in the apocalypse, anything goes. Morals and ethics can get you and your loved ones killed.
Your humanity is second to the priorities of survival.
Besides, Rich learned plenty of lessons along the way, where deals meant nothing to those that only cared about saving their own skin.
Did I miss something? How did Rick & Morgan get captured to begin with???
Negan truly sees himself as a savior of mankind to justify his brutal actions against the “tribute” communities, all of this prior to the actual war.
Rick on the other hand knows what he has become and takes action against others that he think will do harm towards his people, regardless of if its true or not. I’m sure Rick regrets Carl not killing the new doctor guy and sees that as a failure of his fatherhood.
They are setting Rick up for a “redemption arc”.
One of the more interesting things about this show is that the producers have said just because the show follows Rick and his group does not mean they are always the most moral.
I can’t say as I know, as I speed watch it at this point. I’m thinking of enlisting with the Saviors, just so that this can end. Enough, already.
Seriously, these women 'leaders' aren't fierce looking, ferocious warriors. They're small, weak females.
I know Maggie has been around from almost the beginning, but, sheesh, she's too feminine looking to be regarded as a fierce leader.
PC run amok. /rant off
Watching the Talking Dead a couple of weeks ago sounded like a commercial for a reality show, “Flipping The Zombie Apocalypse” with the females running the joint and hugging the walkers rather than killing them. I’m afraid TWD has started into a deeper spiral than it had already been on. Too bad.
” jabronis “... snicker..
People seemed to have missed the payoff. When Rick asked Morgan why he didnt kill him. Morgan said because his son was there.
I kinda hope Dwight survives but I would say there is a 100% chance that Simon gets Luciled soon. Probably Dwight too :(
LOL! It was one of those blink of an eye things. They were talking about the “herd”, blank spot, tied up. Weird huh?
Several weeks ago there was a penned up savior at Hilltop who had the same attitude. She boxed him up and sent him back to Negan.......LOL!
How long before Rick ski jumps over a shark?
