What's wrong with Rick? He's not doing what he's doing out of malice. He's having a mental break because of his feelings of guilt over Lori, Shane, Carl, and everyone. It's only been a week since Lori died. I don't understand disliking the character for it. Lincoln conveys the character's suffering quite genuinely IMO.
The passage of time on the show has always been confusing to me. For example in season 2 Carl gets shot and then two episodes later he's on his feet recovered.
So presumably they were on the farm for quite some time between those two episodes and this complete recovery.
Yet, this season they're elongating 1 week over several episodes.
I understand people's frustration and confusion over Rick's mental break down because it seems as though it's occurring over a much longer period of time.
