I was totally into TWD...for a while. I made it to about Season 8, but then was out. More on that in a minute.
First, to the OP's question...
I thought Merle's death was kind of a bust actually, a let down.
The best deaths were:
1. How could anyone overlook the epic fight to the death between Rick and Shane in Season 2???
2. Glenn, that whole scene defines the term "epic". And no, I didn't think it was too real or disturbing. It defines who Negan is.
3. Flower kid was pretty awesome also. That kid had to GO!
The one death I WISH I could say was the best is...Carol! I can't stand that character, and just wish for her to get the axe on every episode (one of
the reasons I stopped watching is because she just won't die, and she should). Now, they've just about built the entire show around her, and her
One of the biggest reasons I stopped watching is because around Season 8 they really started to depart from the original comic book storyline which I
thought would have been a much better direction for the show to go than where it did. Plus, the show just seemed to lose its way, like there was no
story anymore. And, how many times did there have to be a firefight where everyone was talking about not having any ammo, but suddenly (magically)
they get into a skirmish and fire 80,000 rounds of ammo...and don't hit a GD thing???!! ...and Carol STILL doesn't die! (LOL...j/k).
I think it would have been much better for the show to follow (minimally) the Negan gets locked up plot line and has this weird relationship with
CaRRRRL. Instead they kill Carl, and Negan goes free. Major screw up IMHO. And then there's Rick. I'd like to go back and calculate how many
scenes there were with a beaten down Rick staring at nothing-ness with dramatic music. C'mon Rick...die or get with the program! Boom! Dead Rick.
AMC totally blew up the Rick character also.
And what the hell happened with the whole Maggie pregnancy??? She was pregnant for, what, about 6 years??? Plus, I thought they totally blew up the
Maggie character. That was like a Lucille bat to the face!
So now, they're so far off the original story line they've painted themselves into a corner. The show had so many opportunities to do great things,
but they just got lost. They built up so many great story lines only to just ignore them and let them fizzle...making you go WTF was that all
