The Walking Dead > The Walking Dead Review: Who Didn't Survive? > Comments Page 3
I was sorry to see Dale go but the world he was defending is gone. The group that Randall came from will shoot the men, rape the women, steal all their stuff and pee on their corpses. We saw this at the bar with" Piss Pot" Tony and "smile in your face while I shoot you" Dave. And "Randall the Rat" is no better. He played sniper on the roof shooting at Rick, Glen and Hershal.
I loved it when Darryl called Lori, "Olive Oil". Olive Oil never kept an eye on her kid either. Popeye always saved the kid.
Randall was sucking up to the kid to help him get away. I vote to off Randall, even though I understand Dale's point of devolution.
Sorry to see Dale go, but it is what it is.
When Carl went into the woods I turned the channel. I knew he would run in to a walker. Why do they allow him to wander like that he's going to get them all killed. I am sorry to see Dale's gone he was the voice of reason BUT they live in a different world now and humanity and survival don't always go hand in hand. I too think Randall should die he is a threat. I don't believe that he did not participate in the raping party he spoke about. I don't trust him and that is enough for me. Honestly, I still don't understand why the farm is so safe. Why haven't more walkers found it. How can they go to sleep at night in that house with out boarding up the windows. Oh, and Im glad that Hershel finally woke up and smelled the coffee he was really getting on my nerves. Keeping walkers in the barn how stupid was that. How in the world could be have seen these things a human beings.
Although I know Dale was right, I don't trust Randall... specially after how he tried to convince Carl, and after hearing about the rapes. I would've had him killed too because, after all, it IS a surviving of the fittest life and, to be honest, I rather have someone less to be worried about when there are hundreds of hungry zombies trying to literally eat my guts out there.
Carl needs some stricter discipline, Lori needs to understand that. And I hate to admit it but, I have to say Shane's right half of the time. Shane and Daryl are doing a better job in keeping everyone else safe.
I didn't read the book, so anything in this series is new to me.
The saddest moment was the death of Sophia as they had spent so much time and effort looking for her and her Mother seeing her at last...but then she had to be eliminated.
Carl is a curious kid and a boy, it will be hard to keep him out of trouble. (He looks very much like the youngest son on the Roseanne show in the early years).
I like old men in Hawaiian shirts, sorry to see him go!
I thought it was fitting they finally played the judge, jury and executioner card, as there is rarely an Armageddon written or played without that particular repercussion. You really do need to think about what is best for the personal tribe and sometimes that means killing the greatest and most immediate danger. Randall made bad choices, ran with bad people and since he would be the one who could lead a lot more bad back to the tribe, he would have to pay for those choices with his life. He may still. As horrifying as it is to kill under those circumstances, we did it all the time until a century or so ago. Kinda freaky to think about how often an "outlaw" was shot on the spot. I like the dark way it's turning. It feels far more real to me now. Finally they are getting that this isn't a game. The entire world has fallen and they need to do something to keep themselves alive, but still hold onto some humanity in the process. THAT makes for an interesting show.
I was as surprised as everyone who knew that Dale survives way into the series, and Shane was killed off by Carl very early in the comics. All bets are off, as producers are making thier own storyline loosly based on the original. Dale was a voice of reason. Considering Randall's friends left him to die, they could assume he died at the hands of zombies. Rick's gang could have befriended him. Of course this will all lead on. SPoiler alert! Winter slows zombies.. AMC slipped this week with the early release to pre-order DVD's, and advertise information about Shane on the box. Lori will be happy.
Since I've just started watching this show, I can't say a whole lot. I'm still learning the characters. I can say I do not like Shane or Lori. I'm trying to find previous episodes to catch up.
Just who in the hell is supposed to be watching this kid? It's this kid, being a brat I might add, that lead the zombie to the farm(can more be that far behind?) and to Dale's death. I wonder if that will even be addressed.
I can see both sides of the coin regarding Randall. But it might be better for the group if they off him..........
Now that I have had time to think about it, I think Randall needed to be executed based on the fact he comes from a party of 30--plus because of what was said by him trying to get to Carl. Party of 30 means our happy little band of survivors is severely outnumbered and outgunned, when they come looking for Randall. The group rape story should have been reported by Carl to Mom and Dad. Rick, hearing that--and then remembering the fat guy peeing in the corner of the bar and his sick commentary (before Rick capped him)--Rick could have put it all together. Randall wasn't just an onlooker to what his group did--why would he be? That group is bad news. Put Randall down. It's hard, but it had to be done. As for Dale dying--well here comes the group devolving down into utter chaos into the last two eps of the season. Now they will have to reap the whirlwind.
Randall showed his true colors to Carl and said his people would take good care of him. As a child he didn't understand what Randall meant and did not warn his mother or father. If Carl had spoken up this would have saved Dale's life by ending the discussion about what RANDALL WAS REALLY ABOUT!
May not watch again. Thought Dale gave that great element to the show keeping the peace while living in such a violent world.Bad decision, seriously, I watched every week and now may not. Just not enough for me to have violence, and oh yeah....the kid becoming a brat.
Just when this show was beginning to win me back, it goes into lazy writing territory where characters being unreasonably stupid creates the danger and the threat suddenly increases beyond levels previously stated. One of the things I love about the comic is that the characters make mistakes but the mistakes make sense/are believable/the people have clearly been broken by the world they're living in. Not "Hey, I'm going to go wander off and play by the swamp where the zombies always pop up because my parents and the group in general does a terrible job keeping tabs on me." followed up with "Oh man...what tore that cow apart? It looks like its still alive, let me get closer and drop my guard just for a second." I'm glad they killed him for the story value, but feel like they executed it poorly.
Randall seems more plot device than character to me. I hope they let him live and he is responsible for the introduction of the Governor.
The mistake was rescuing Randall in the first place. The last thing the group needed was another drain on their limited medical resources, especially one who had been shooting at them moments earlier.
Fine. They rescued him. At that point, if they were going to waste the resources fixing his leg, they should have tried to recruit him outright. His other group left him behind, these people saved him. At this point, even if he was "bad," he'd probably still be open to joining.
But no, they had to jerk him around, torture him, threaten to kill him. At this point, they simply can't =afford= the risk of letting him go. So of course they will anyway....
Lol the idiot who wrote this would probably have died in the first week of a zombie outbreak cause he obviously lacks survival instinct. I'd of shot Randal in the head in a heartbeat. It's a simple choice; kill some idiot who tried to kill members of my group or let him go so he could bring back his barbaric group to rape and torture my women and overrun my camp. Bang bang.
I too blame Carl for Dale's death. Yeah, he's a kid. But in a world like that, he should know better. What? He got bored, so he tormented a zombie? He almost got bitten himself and then it came back, killed a cow (which is their butter and milk) AND now Dale. Sure, the cow isn't as important, but Dale is dead and I blame that child. Honestly, I thought his parents raise him well. Then again, Lori is his mother and Shane was basically a father figure for months.
i read it somewhere that shane will die in comping up episode OR turn into a zombie and carl will kill him then either in season finale or episode before the farm will get overrun and majority of hershels family will die.
I've never been a Dale fan. At all. And yet, I was sad when he died. Somehow it just didn't feel right. Idk. If I'm sad at this one, I'll be super sad at the season finale I think.
Lol sorry I meant dale. Dang left 4 dead. Ok that's 2 things to kill the old man, left 4 dead, bill, and the walking dead, dale. Why are people so messed up?
Can't believe. I wanted to hop in the tv and start beating the hell out of that zombie and then throw Carl across the field and smashing through the house. But what everyone needs to do is to put them self in the survivors shoes. If that was you you'd do whatever you need to do to survive. But why bill? Kill Andrea! Or Shane! They aren't my favorites at all!!!!!
Dale's death was a complete shock. They are definitely deviating from the comic. But that's okay because otherwise I would know exactly what would happen next and the show wouldn't be half the fun it is. Having said that, I want to see them leave the farm in the next two episodes and end the season by finding the Prison. Let's move this plotline along!
I remember reading somewhere that a major character on a show was getting killed off BUT it was because he asked to be let out of his contract due to some dispute. I loved Dale! And freaked when I saw him go down but then I thought hey! Maybe he was the male character that wanted out! May not be him but sure did make me feel better about things! Carl needs to be spanked!
I was SHOCKED that they killed Dale! I never read the graphic novels so I definitely wasn't expecting it. I have to admit it is a great move for the show though, Sophias death had no affect on me and no major characters have died this season. It needed to happen, I love when shows can shock me like that! I'll be sad to see Dale go, but I'm happy Andrea finally stood up for him in that meeting, it was a good way to end their arc because their relationship was an integral part of the show for me. Also loved the scene between Hershel and Glen. I need him and Maggie to get back together I love them!
I'm PISSED at Carl. You say it's easier for you to forgive him because hes a kid, but not for me. Maybe it's because the kid is a bad actor, but anything he does makes no sense at all. He comes off like a brat the entire time. I get that he has grown up in a messed up world, but everything he does puts himself in danger. What the hell is wrong with him?
RIP DALE :( Will miss you!
