Season 2 and a Governor fangirl in Season 3, many fans still felt sorry when she was ultimately bitten. The Load, but even many of his haters were mortified by his brutally graphic death. The Load and for being Genre Blind when it came to facing the walkers. The Load, an unpleasant jackass who made viewers want to throw up with his constant ugly grimace, and was dubbed “Son of Porchdick” by the fandom. Jadis is not popular at all, but her being forced to kill her entire reanimated group after Simon murders them all makes her quite sympathetic thanks to Pollyanna Mc Intosh’s great acting. Better Angels”, is he mocking Rick because he thinks he can’t do it or does he want Rick to do it out of guilt? On a related note, did Rick really kill Shane for the sake of the group, or was it all for the sake of securing leadership and his claim on Lori?

Is Andrea The Load or an Action Woobie? Early episodes made fans wonder whether Rick is an effective leader or a fine example of Good Is Dumb? Later episodes have him straddling the line between anti-hero and nominal hero. Woodbury because she doesn’t want security and civilization to diminish her role as a sword-wielding badass. PTSD at the thought of history repeating itself. Is the Governor’s obsession with the prison actually about protecting his own or is it really about revenge? Did he really intend to let Rick’s group go free or was he planning to kill them all anyway?

Did he change from one motive to another? If so, when and in which direction? How genuine was Simon in the Season 6 finale when he made a speech to Rick about cherishing his loved ones as if it was their last day on earth?

Rick, Michonne, and Carl, take their weapons, and start beating Daryl to death.

Daryl sitting and eating while ignoring Beth, Michonne seeing her walker lookalike while blending with a herd, Maggie lying among a pile of bodies, etc. Season 4, though there is considerable disagreement on whether it was the prison as a setting or the Governor as an Arc Villain that was exhausted. The buildup to the onscreen appearance of Negan lasts the entire back half of Season 6, and mostly consists of the Saviors being dealt one defeat after another, making it impossible to view them as a serious threat, and with none of them ever getting any kind of personality beyond generic Smug Snake. Some fans, despite generally liking Jeffrey Dean Morgan, are already complaining that there are too many episodes in Season 7 dedicated to Negan showing what an utter dick he is, in between occasional “Pet the Dog” moments, and that it was getting tedious.

It seems that every time a member of Rick’s group is at the Sanctuary, Negan will spend an entire episode singing “Hakuna Matata” in an attempt to get them to join his army or at least try to prove he’s not a bad guy.
