Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

If there's an attack on the prison, yeah, Beth (or any of the others I listed) would be likely targets to be killed off. She's certainly one of the show's most superfluous characters, albeit one who's actually had character development - she was the girl who wanted to commit suicide back in season two, if you remember that.

I could see Beth being the one Carl is concerned for ; there is a budding romance that has been hinted at. I also think her death would be more significant then some of the other possibilities; she has strong connections to many in the group,

i think it makes sense too...i didn't read the comics except vol. 2, which hinted at something developing...

And not to be mean, but her death would make the most sense for a mid-season finale....it's the end of season finale, where i would get real worried! (or,as this season showed, somewher eunexpected)

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Yeah, Beth does seem like the most likely target for death. Most of the other characters are still in the middle of arcs, and IMO it would be kind of crappy to kill them off without resolving them. I guess they could just resolve their arc and then kill them in this episode, though.

Or the writers could go with the "that's life" attitude and have someone die without resolving their particular story arc.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Or how about no more "shock" deaths for the remainder of the season? Try letting supporting characters live so their development can add to the story.

1. Zombie show.

2. You did see season two, right? This series does not do character development that well. It works much better as a plot driven zombie-infested violent apocalypse series.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

the shocks aren't very effective if we don't care about the characters

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Yeah, we all knew it was coming, Oscar's dead. As soon as he got on the roof of the bus, I knew he was a goner. It's a shame as I thought they could have done so much for the show.

Having seen some scans of the comic book, I couldn't help but blurt out during the Michonne/Governor fight that they should be careful or someone would get their eye poked out.

Only having seen some scans and not having read the book, I got that Tyrese is a fan-favorite, but he didn't do much to convince me he's a worthy replacement for Oscar. The whole scene where they get locked it infuriated me, as, unless I missed something, they still haven't killed the soon-to-be-Walker. Good on Carl to lock them up and good on Tyrese for recognizing why he did it. Now kill that Walker-to-be! You know the mom who looks the same age as her son...

It has to be done in an intentionally humorous way.

BTW, can we finally give up on worrying about infection from anything but a geek bite? I've been saying it all along. They're playing it loose. So loose, that Michonne has her bashed open head smashed into a tank full of zombie oozing fluid

If you can't get infected by that, then the rules of blood born infection are out the window, folks. Get over it
