So, I probably don’t have to remind you that The Walking Dead is back this Sunday. I’m already completely stressed out about it. Trust me you do NOT want me on your Zombie apocalypse crew. I’m more of a ‘run and hide’ chick than a ‘machete the undead in the head’ chick. Maybe I’d find a strong side that I never knew I had inside of me, but I doubt it. Here’s a look at 10 things I’d like to see happen in the second half of season 3. I’m completely disregarding what has happened in the comic books, since clearly the show has deviated drastically from the original source already anyhow. ALSO—SPOILER ALERT, just in case you might be clicking on this article even though you haven’t seen the first half of the season. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT!?!
Daryl’s Continuing Survival
Don’t eff with me writers. Don’t even think of killing Daryl. If you kill off Daryl every Walking Dead fan on the planet will go redneck on your asses. He’s like The Walking Dead‘s Omar Little. This is the character that you can’t wait to show up in every episode. Don’t take that joy from me. Haven’t you traumatized me enough?
Merle is so loathsome. The only thing that could redeem this despicable racist would be to see him sacrifice his life to save his brother. Plus we would probably get to see an awesome scene where Daryl shows his emotional side and I could fantasize about comforting him.
Some Governor/Woodbury Back Story
How about seeing a little more about how The Governor came to power and the origins of the Woodbury compound? We get a lot of that in the comics and it’s awesome stuff. I’m totally Team Grimes, but The Governor is the more fascinating character. What can I say? I’m a kind of obsessed with Jim Jones types.
A Daryl and Carol Hook-Up
If I can’t have him, I’m really hoping he woos Carol out of her misery. Plus it would be fun to see TV Carol, get a little bit of her comic book hoochie Carol on.
Carl Becomes Likable
Come on! It makes me feel super crappy to hate on a child. I guess I should be happy that he’s no longer ‘Where’s Carl?’ Carl, but he still remains unlikable for some reason. Although I did produce the snot cry of all time when he shot Lori, so maybe he’s growing on me. Let’s just have that growing on me grow a little faster.
Andrea Getting Bitch-Slapped By Michonne
Don’t make me regret the fact that Dale convinced you to live, Andrea! I would love to see Michonne smack her back into reality. We’ll see how she plays it after seeing Daryl is in danger. If she does nothing, I’ll bitch slap her myself!
Tyrese Survives the Prison Battle
I’m hoping that because this character was introduced so much later than he was in the comics, that means he’ll survive the battle at the prison. Actor Chad ‘Cutty’ Coleman needs to on my TV more. Which brings me to…
Some More Actors From ‘The Wire’ Join the Cast
Am I the only one who gets happy when I see an actor from The Wire on my screen? I’m like more excited than their moms probably are. Michael K. Williams please! Even if he’s just playing a zombie with a heart of gold. I’ll accept that.
I know this isn’t a major thing, but I just can’t work with a baby named Judith. But let me just take this opportunity to say ‘Awwwwww!’ regarding the above photo.
The Prison Battle Doesn’t Leave Me Completely Drained
I honestly don’t know if I can handle the stress. I have a feeling it’s gonna be absolute white-knuckle viewing. Better stock up on red wine.
