Where's the democracy in Alexandria or any of these places? Because in a sane world, the majority od itizens in those small struggling communities, having been told about the death cult of creeps, would have booted Lydia out, immediately. If they wanted to be nice about it, theyd give her food and gear her (& Henry, even) up, and then tell them good luck and scram.
And why should anyone care about Lydia? Lydia remembers movies, so she must be older than Hornry. She looks about 18-21 years old. At 14 youre probably old enough to run away and make due, in this world. Carl could have done it, and plus she knows how to use walkers to her advantage. When Michonne was telling her she needs to get up and leave the community on her own because if not she was going to get a lot of people killed essentially, and she was just looking at her dumbly, I was so rooting for Michonne to just say, Fuck it, and grab her by the ear and drag her outside the walls.
And what about Michonne's Big Reveal from last week? ABout how she doesnt trust anyone anymore, So much so that she turns her back and doesnt even visit with any OGs who took her ass in, like Carol, or ones who fought with her, like Tara, etc? It should have meant she never would have relented on taking dumbass kids into the community, or old school buddies that you hardly knew. Not the people who took her in, and fought alongside her. Another character ruined beyond any redemption.
And Warden Rick sent your ass *packing*, Michonne. He DID decide to turn you over to the governor, and under way less harsh circumstances. It doesnt make a g.d. difference if he had accepted her in the beginning, because she was a nobody. It wasnt until the Guv gave Rick an ultimatum to hand her over or get wiped out, that he had to make the hard decision between her and everyone else getting slaughtered. And this was *after* Merle took Rick to task and told him exactly how the Guv was going to brutally torture Michonne for days before killing her. Hershel himself was ready to hand her over, not wanting his daughters to get killed by sparing a stranger.
Honestly, there is no choice for a leader. You do not sacrifice your community of people for a stranger. At least there was a third option for Lydia, and that would have been to send her packing with supplies. She'd have had a fighting chance. Barring that, she could have slunk back to her mother and still recieved the beatings, until she eventually ran off, fought back and killed her. She wasnt living under a death sentence.
But what do you expect? This show is so badly written that the questionable things that dont make sense, outweigh any plausible character development and story 10:1. You can literally go on for days pointing out the nonsensical stuff in these episodes, The writing is so bad that posters on forums have to make up reasons or how things off screen and never explained may have happened. At that point, it just becomes writing fan fiction in order to make any kind of sense.
The weather is obviously not the same in their alternate universe or non-humans and non-zombies, too. As it doesnt freeze any of the limbs of thee rotting walkers, re the preview.
