So I almost have a naked inbox. I am excited! It’s been weeks since I’ve been down to zero messages in my box. lol. But as usual, I’m always open to messages. If you got multiple messages or fanmails from me today, I apologize. I was on a roll. <3

|Curious fandom related question. I am just not enjoying this season at all sadly and we have started a bet at work to see who dies in the finale. I actually chose Glenn, thoughts?|
I’ve gone back and forth between Glenn and Maggie. Right now, I’m just not sure. I don’t want anyone to die, but I know realistically that someone else is going to bite the dust. *sigh* Why does this show hurt so much? I’m going to need therapy when it’s over. OH! And you probably think I’m lying, but I’m not. I can’t handle my feelings anymore.
As for the show this season, I’ve gone back and forth between loving and hating it, and I’m to the point where I’m just in a wait and see holding pattern. I have liked a lot of the stuff other people seemed to hate in the back half, so maybe I’m doing a good job at stepping back and just accepting what is. I don’t know.1:54pm
Okay I know this is so petty but I can’t help myself. Judging by the plots we’ve had thus far, I hope NR enjoys the fanfic-style plots he’s going to have to be acting out. If it keeps playing out like this, he’ll be slamming B up against a tree with the moonlight glistening off his back in no time. HA!
If this happens, I will lose what morsel of respect I have left for him. No lie. Because then I will forever call him a hypocrit. And I will know that what I suspected all along is truth.
I’ve noticed too much of Norman’s real life coming to play for Daryl Dixon as a character. His smoking, his flipping the bird, and now because Norman dates 20 something year olds, Daryl does, too? I don’t get this at all. Not in the slightest. *sigh* But since it’s on the AMC website, it must be…
Yes, Daryl has become Norman. It’s kind of sad that the writers and TPTB obviously cater to him to keep him happy and on the show for the fan girls.
Yep. They don’t use any creativity what so ever. I mean, even his backstory was cut from the same mold as most rednecks that you’d expect down south. I mean, come on?! Why not break the mold? Why not have him actually have given two shits about his life? I don’t know. I’m just really annoyed.
The smoking and bird flipping doesn’t seem OOC to me but the touchy-freely goodness was just too much for me.
It’s not that it’s OOC to me. It’s just that it’s a Norman thing to do. I don’t mind the smoking. But when they start letting what the actor/actresses do influence their creativity in the writers room, it bugs me. I mean, didn’t they have an idea for Daryl and Norman changed their mind? It makes me wonder if they would have done this with Merle had they given the part to him and not ever created Daryl in the first place. It just bugs me that they give him so much pull as to what Daryl does and who he is. But that’s just my opinion.9:23pm

I don’t get this at all. Not in the slightest. *sigh* But since it’s on the AMC website, it must be true, right? Because in all honesty, when I watched the scene where Daryl goes off to find Merle in This Sorrowful Life, I never go the impression that Daryl said, “You’re family, too.” I always took it as him saying, “Your family, too.” meaning that Rick’s family had to be ready just like everyone else did for when the Governor shows up at the prison. It was the only way that ever made sense to me, but it was on the AMC website, so we had to believe that it was “You’re family, too.” But I don’t know. This is crap. It sounds like someone that really doesn’t watch the show wrote that recap. Because is that how that scene played out last night? I guess, I should rewatch it.
Honestly, I’m not even debating whether she did it or not. I’m merely stating that ‘if’ she did,…
Yep yep, I hear you. Although I’m not sure what form “held accountable” could take. We’ll have to wait (AAUUGGHH) and see.
I guess for me that just means that they discuss it and they hear everyone’s opinions on it. And then go from there. I don’t want it swept under the rug and pretend like it didn’t happen. Hell. I’ll be happy when Carol confesses to Tyreese. Or tells him the whole story. Because I still don’t understand why if she did indeed commit the crime, why she didn’t just make like they died when she went to check on them and then she put them down before they turned and then burned the bodies to keep it from spreading. I mean, the whole storyline is so weird. But I guess we won’t know until its all been said and done and the season is complete. But three episodes? I can’t believe they are leaving it down to the wire like this. *pouts*2:50pm
I agree but honestly for Carol the haters are going to hate. For instance, apparently she’s a cold, heartless bitch if she doesn’t have blood on her hands but in turn covered for someone. I mean she’s in a lose-lose situation with people who just don’t like her. It’s sad because if it was any other character (especially one of the men) it would be fine and dandy. I hold ALL of them accountable for their actions
However, I don’t think she should be dragged through the streets by goats for covering for someone if that is the case.
I find that whole thing about her being cold and heartless so out there that I won’t even engage in any post or person that claims that. Especially when they claim to have liked her before this season. If you truly liked a character, you wouldn’t take the world of the people behind the scenes and you’d question just what it is that you missed in order to arrive at that poorly executed theory. Nothing has ever translated on screen from Carol that she was cold or heartless. Quite the opposite in fact. So I don’t even get why they tried to paint her that way off screen when it didn’t translate that way on screen. It’s always so weird for me. I don’t even know.
I don’t know why they think her covering for someone would be so horrible either. I’m pretty sure that there is someone in all of our lives that we’d go to the ends of the earth to protect in some way, shape, form, or fashion. But when people hate certain characters, they will grasp at anything to drive their own opinions home. It’s sad, really.
leigh57 replied to your post: “like or reblog this post if…”:I feel as if I don’t even know how to make a judgment here, because the writing this season is so OOC that I have no idea what anybody is doing. My official position is I’ll wait to see how they resolve this, and then decide, lol.
I’m trying so hard to remain in that camp, but I had to say something after seeing something that said, “If Daryl’s actions towards Beth aren’t excusable, then Carol committing murder sure as shit isn’t either”. Because I have never said that Carol was excusable for anything she’s done. She can be held accountable just the same as I expect all of them to be held accountable.
The difference for me is that we SAW Daryl behave like a scary asshole. All we know for sure about Carol is what she said, and I’m not convinced.
For me, her demeanor when she “confessed” and when she brought up to Rick “I killed two people and you haven’t said anything about it” in the car was very similar to how she responded to Tyreese when he asked her where she’d been - at least somewhat awkward. And MMB’s a better actress than that.
Honestly, I’m not even debating whether she did it or not. I’m merely stating that ‘if’ she did, then I want her held accountable. I won’t excuse her actions to make her seem like she’s so amazing that she’s untouchable against consequence. That’s all this was about me for me.
I don’t know if she did it. I’ve seen compelling theories for both sides of this, and I’m content to wait it out and let the show get us there and then I’ll be ready to discuss that. Because right now, she confessed to doing it, and that’s all I have to go on. Melissa is an amazing actress. And I love the way she’s portrayed Carol throughout this whole season (what little we’ve seen of her).
Again, I’m just stating that if she did it, I want her held accountable just like I’d hold any of the others accountable for their actions. Inexcusable doesn’t translate as unforgivable. Not to me anyway.2:32pm
Bahahaha. Amusingly enough, I am in the middle of making an amusing diagram on this subject;)
I cannot wait to see it <32:10pm

You think Carol should be held accountable for her actions if she did indeed kill Karen and David at the prison. Or if she was covering for someone.
Note: This doesn’t mean you still can’t love and adore her. It just means that she has flaws, and that we don’t expect her to not have consequences for her actions. I expect them all to have consequences for their actions. I have never said in any way, shape, or form that her actions were excusable. They are forgivable though. Just like Daryl’s treatment of Beth, and Rick’s banishment of Carol.12:40pm
