Am I the only one shocked at the Governor’s death more so than Hershel?
I’m tired of you jerks saying he used his new family. That shit ain’t true. If you disagree. I’ll give you a lengthy ass essay ass to the reason why you’re wrong and why I’m right
Uh no, not me. Hershel was the moral compass of the show. Someone who cared about others first and then himself. Just a good man who actively tried to be an even better man every day we saw him. Someone who would have forgiven the Governor in order to heal. If the Governor had taken Rick up on his offer, Hershel would have probably been the first to put a hand on Phillip’s shoulder. The Governor killed him in the most cowardly, selfish manner I can think of. So no…
I don’t think he intended to use Lilly or Megan, no. He was clearly schizophrenic, and schizophrenia doesn’t allow for rational self reflection. It’s a condition that nullifies a perspective on one’s own selfishness or insanity entirely. So given that, no he didn’t mean to use or hurt them.
Hershel’s murder felt like a bull had kicked me in the guts. By the time the Governor’s number came up I was short of any emotion besides numbness or suppressed trauma. Which is also why it was so great and brought out a very realistic emotional response in the audience. The murder of a great man can’t be mended in any way shape or form by the death of the murderer. Apparently revenge doesn’t taste like nothing much at all if you lose someone so dear.
I understand people love David Morrissey. And people love to hate some characters. That’s very normal. I find it very difficult to understand on any level how anyone could genuinely love the Governor though. Someone who would probably end up killing you if you disagree with them just once in real life.
everyone who watched the walking dead tonight (via pinkmanjesse)
That was hands down the worst thing I’ve ever seen on television. Ever.
My heart was beating so fast I thought I was gonna pass out. Now I just feel like puking.
TWD is officially the most harsh thing to ever appear on TV. I can’t even really feel sad yet. I’m just in pure shock.
