Jacqui being left behind is a bit strange, but less so if you accept that the character was created for the show for the single purpose of keeping Dr. Jenner from having to die alone.
If she was, the series executed the idea poorly, chiefly because they have Andrea consider joining her and then getting talked out of it. It basically comes off as 'there are people who care about Andrea but we're okay with leaving Jacqui to die.'

And so what if his motives were partly sexual? Is it "creepy" that Rick's feelings toward Lori were partly sexual?
Lori was Rick's wife and those feelings were reciprocal and Rick did not fuck with Lori's head. It's not even remotely comparable. Fucking with someone and demeaning them because you like them but therefore feel a posessive need to dictate their choices and their freedom, assuming an arbitrary, unearned and unasked for status as guardian... yeah.
Agreed. Rick's dealings with his wife were not manipulative, and normal, considering the nature of their relationship. Dale seemed like a wanna-be puppet master who sought a "bride" for his leftist world views, since Andrea had a few of her own (trying to get Beth to "explore" a decision about suicide).

and Michonne spends the entire season unable to articulate the most basic levels of suspicion to Andrea.
That was yet another examples of the writers painting themselves into a corner: if Michonne said more about Woodbury, then Andrea would be forced into a decision early on, which takes her away from the town, or if she believes Michonne, but still stays in Woodbury, Andrea comes off like a total ass. Well, the second option really does not matter, since Andrea is the biggest ass of the series next to the governor.
