I'd be right there with you Greg, except that I already came close to quitting at the start of the Washington stuff when real-world abominations were being cited for shock value, and then again in the middle when I felt the storytelling had got very sloppy, and now here I am again - so I have to accept it's probably not going to happen this time either.
I did think Sophia's hour had come around
, so I was slightly relieved that it was 'only' Glenn
. I'm just not at all sure I understand why the graphically bullying alpha-male cruelty was necessary, when we already did exactly this twice
back in Woodbury. It was
unsettling and upsetting, and all credit to Kirkman and Adlard for achieving in a world where I look forward every week to Spurious' Crossed webcomic and the wife and I giggle merrily over the cheek-shots in the Dredd clip and protracted disembowlings in Spartacus over tea, but I just wonder if it served any novel purpose beyond
that. It's not like we had achieved any relaxed status quo a-la the Prison that needed to be shaken up, things were in constant flux: this was just a result of an intelligence snafu. Also, Glenn and Maggie's story
was just getting interesting too, so I feel a bit cheated of my investment there if the only reason was a gory main-character death
for some base-10 round number anniversary sales kick.
Still, I suppose that's exactly why I'll keep reading - to see why and where it goes now.
