Great news: Most annoying character on “The Walking Dead” now dead

posted at 8:17 pm on March 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

I made the title of the post ambiguous in case any readers Tivo’d it and haven’t watched yet, but c’mon. We all know who I’m talking about. Realistically, it could only be one of two people: Either Sophia’s mopey mom, whose name I still don’t know, or that endlessly whining bleeding heart Dale. (Alas, the screencap AMC chose for the clip embedded below gives it away.) Now that some of the dead weight is being shed, I take it poor underused T-Dog is next. Or maybe Herschel’s other daughter, who tried to kill herself a few episodes ago? As with Sophia, until that plotline unspooled, I had no idea that character even existed. I wonder which barely-there member of the ensemble will be next to be suddenly thrust to center stage in the expectation that anyone watching cares a whit about them.

Incidentally, the kill scene here is dumb on several levels. How did Dale not hear it coming in the still of the night? These things growl constantly every time they’re onscreen, which isn’t often. How did the zombie disembowel him with his bare hands? (Admittedly, that’s happened in Romero movies too.) Tacking it on at the end right after the big dramatic climax with the prisoner made it feel random and haphazard, a zombie ex machina to get rid of the character before people start tuning out in sheer irritation at his do-good-ism. Then again, all’s well that ends well — and this certainly ended well. And in fairness, they did a brilliant job with the scene of Rick’s son tossing rocks at the zombie stuck in the mud. For all the grating soap-opera melodrama, there are sporadic flashes of genius in how the show captures the pathos of the zombies’ predicament. The scene of that zombie snarling from the end of a noose was the best thing about the first half of this season. Having little Carl amuse himself by humiliating a zombie who’s helpless in front of him was a more affecting moment of dehumanization than the entire Shane storyline. More of that and fewer weepy “here’s mah pappy’s timepiece” exchanges between Glenn and Herschel, please.

Oh, c’mon…. I’ll miss Dale. The mistake was putting him in the foreground. The guy that plays him has an amzing talent for generally glowering at people and events from a distance.

HEY YOU WALKERS – GET OFFA MY LAWN!

Go read someone else’s blog if you don’t like it. Nobody makes you read this post .

In regards to this latest episode I agree there is no way Dale does not hear the zombie. Also I have a hard time believing Rick would even entertain executing the captured dude. Overall this season is much better than the first. I will not miss and episode and will enjoy APs posts regarding the show for sure.

CW on March 5, 2012 at 8:25 PM

The Husband likes this show but I don’t watch so I’m using AP’s story as a guessing game.

Santorum is Shane?

annoyinglittletwerp on March 5, 2012 at 8:26 PM

With the killing of Dale, they have now killed off 50% of the remaining older population. Hence, I didn’t like it.

I wanted to see the kid get it. He’s acting like a brat, and his mother – who jumps to his defense whenever he acts up – is so neglectful she doesn’t even wonder where he is all day. While he roams the woods and various other places where he isn’t supposed to be.

She deserves to loose him, for sure.

Alana on March 5, 2012 at 8:27 PM

After two decent episodes, I knew this one was going to suck the high hard one.

Dale does die in the source material, but not in this way. Its another deviation from said material which is really annoying and messes with what makes this a great ‘comic’.

The rants against torture were particularly tiresome.

Does no one watch the kid during the day? He wanders around the farm – an area already established that has the occasional zombie walk into it. He rifles through a guys stuff, takes a gun, wanders into the surrounding countryside, comes across the zombie, then effs around with it till almost sundown, then almost gets eaten – and no one wondered where he was, least of all his mother or father?

How was Dale stupid enough to go walking by himself at night.

Why are we talking about TV when Game of Thrones isn’t back on yet?

e-pirate on March 5, 2012 at 8:31 PM

Good riddance. What else should they do with the kid BUT kill him? Smh..

On another note though,

Im still wondering what it meant when they seen the walkers who didnt have bite marks.

Politricks on March 5, 2012 at 8:32 PM

Yeah, T-Dog is barely in the show. Maybe the’re saving him for when that one-handed racist guy comes back.

Anyway, really good episode. Dale was annoying, but not too bad, imo.

Dongemaharu on March 5, 2012 at 8:32 PM

Yeah, Predator (at 8:33)- I thought it was just me.

Alana on March 5, 2012 at 8:32 PM

I’d really like for them to kill off Carl and Laurie. Then maybe, just maybe, the plot could move on a bit.

NotoriousFin on March 5, 2012 at 8:35 PM

I lol’d at the post title.

For me, Lori is frequently the most annoying character. Dale was the ‘voice of conscience’ on the show & I suppose someone else will have to pickup that duty.

clancy_wiggum on March 5, 2012 at 8:36 PM

How was Dale stupid enough to go walking by himself at night.

fleiter on March 5, 2012 at 8:31 PM

He was walking back to the RV from the house, heard a ‘noise’ out in a field and walked to check it out. Turned out it was a cow that had been attacked and partially eaten, but wasn’t quite dead yet.

He turns around and WHAMMO! The zombie that didn’t shut up the whole time Carl was effing with it, snuck up on a guy in alert mode in an open field.

catmman on March 5, 2012 at 8:36 PM

What irritated me was the flip-flop by the blonde. First she’s on board with the execution, stating that there’s no alternative, then she flips to Dale’s side without offering a viable alternative.

Dead Hand Control on March 5, 2012 at 8:36 PM

Also, the appropriate thought process would have been Oh, a half eaten cow. I should probably be on guard for the zombies that did this.

Dead Hand Control on March 5, 2012 at 8:37 PM

Dead Hand Control, that’s not the only fli-flop from nowhere! How about Hershel all of a sudden deciding he likes Glen so much for his daughter that he gives him his watch?

One assumes that is because he liked the cut of Glen’s jib at the Zombie shootout at the saloon.

But it didn’t quite work. Plus, when they came home from that and his daughter Maggie runs past HIM in order to hug Glen . . . well, that wouldn’t endear the average father to a kid he already didn’t like very much.

So, two flip-flops that make no sense.

Alana on March 5, 2012 at 8:37 PM

One down, two to go. Now if only they’ll continue the trend with Lori and Carl then we can have us a proper zombie post-apocalyptic television program.

Blake on March 5, 2012 at 8:44 PM

I like this show because, well, zombies. Even if there’s not always enough of them. But the stupid level just keeps getting worse. Laurie running off a couple episodes back to get Rick? Dumb. Little dude (Carl?) being allowed to constantly wander around by himself? Dumb.

It’s gotten to the point that I can’t wait for them all to get eaten by walkers. Every. Single. One of them.

flipflop on March 5, 2012 at 8:45 PM

I don’t think Dale was liberal. He was the only one left with a principled stand for the dignity of human life. The rest consider everyone expendable if they do not fit in with the plan.

Hey, I was with Dale on the issue of keeping the captive alive.

But he is definately a liberal; he is always trying to take away the guns.

More entertaining had Carl got the idea to stay put and throw rocks at the zombie until he bashed his head in. Like blowing up anthills with firecrackers.

Al-Ozarka on March 5, 2012 at 8:48 PM

Having little Carl amuse himself by humiliating a zombie who’s helpless in front of him was a more affecting moment of dehumanization than the entire Shane storyline.

Now we get to watch his guilt evolve; it was that zombie that got Dale.

Stopped watching this about mid-last season. Apparently the only real suspense — in between all of the “contemporary American relationship” centered melodrama, whining, conflict, and emoting — is who gets eaten/bitten by the zombies next.

This is basically a day-time soap opera turned zombie TV serial series.

Either Sophia’s mopey mom, whose name I still don’t know

I don’t know who she is either. In fact, it took me through half the second season before I realized she wasn’t supposed to be recovering from cancer. I felt sorry for her character at first because she had shaved her head. Naturally, I thought she had been going through chemo.

Last night, she had that pointless scene where she yelled at Rick and his wife because their son was rude. Hopefully she is next.

That’s what you aspire to?

You don’t set the bar very high.

Then again, considering this crowd, maybe you do.

I like the show. Not all zombie shows can be non-stop Zombieland. Just like it will be after the zombie apocalypse. What I find hard to believe is that none of these jokers can slap together a decent suppressor,or, that they haven’t scavenged reloading equipment.

-or a wire and tin can zombie alarm
-or put an observation post on the high ground (those encroachers will need to build a fire occasionally)
-or put together a real expedition for long term important supplies
-or modified a vehicle for the post apocalypse world
-or a zillion other things that would be more important than spilling these characters feelings every episode.

And no I don’t spend too much time contemplating the zombie apocalypse…just the apocalypse.

And yeah, I am ready.

And no, you cannot come over.

On AMC they had a poll if Randall should be killed, It split right down the standard poll of the death penalty 51% for 49% not.

If someone is about to shout you execute style start singing the national anthem, amazing grace or just a open prayer. It would destroy them no matter who it is and it would be harder for them to do it and might not do it at all. That is if they are the judge jury and executioner.

lorien1973 on March 5, 2012 at 9:00 PM

If they decide to kill off Darryl, there’s no telling how much my interest level in this show will crash; I’d almost certainly stop watching it.

Why does Carl throw like a girl? Between Rick and Shane, neither of them could teach him how to throw??

Btw, Dale… the mere fact that the group helped fix up the kid’s leg and then spent a couple of days to ponder whether or not to kill him, shows they’ve retained some sense of the “old world” order; as opposed to just killing him outright or leaving him to die with his skewered leg.

That new kid creeps me out. He’s trouble. No matter how much he ingratiates himself in the group, he’s a bad seed.

shannon76 on March 5, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Dale’s death is important. It was clear that Dale was the only “Voice of Civilization” of the group. The episode was laying out Dale’s importance as the conscience of the group, and now that he’s dead, they’re going to find themselves adrift.

As for the zombie “sneaking up” on Dale. A) it was night and B) the cow’s groans were a lot like those of the zombie.

I especially liked the kid’s remorse at not shooting the zombie. He knows what he did by not shooting the walker.

Nethicus on March 5, 2012 at 9:01 PM

I don’t watch the show, but I strangely enjoy reading about it…didn’t realize the zombies are called walkers, so I didn’t get the big deal at first when I read on another site about the kid throwing rocks at a walker stuck in the mud (yes, I was picturing a walker that the elderly use being stuck in the mud!)…I guess I should watch, but I’m squeamish…I only suffer through True Blood for Eric!

Poll question: how many would really object if Rick’s annoying wife was the next to go?

I could do without her, a couple of Hershel’s daughters.

Keep Darryl, the blonde woman, Glenn, and I guess Hershel (I’m sure he has more mementos from the old country that he wants to pawn off). That list would be my ‘untouchables’.

shannon76 on March 5, 2012 at 9:06 PM

What happens when zombies make a fresh kill? Do they go back into lurk mode and wait for more victims to show up? NO! They squat down and eat, and eat, and eat!

There was no excuse for Dale to be taken by surprise by the cow-killng zombie. If Otis was good enough to allow Shane to escape, the cow should’ve been good enough to warn Dale.

Not that the show won’t be better now that mopey Dale is gone…I just have a problem with the method.

She’s easy on the eyes, she can stay.

Dale could have stayed, the humanity isn’t gone, just taking a needed break.

Andrea can go and Daryl can step up along with T-Dog.

I’m ready for the real terror of the post apocalyptic world. Defending it from humans who didn’t have any humanity to start with…like people from Philadelphia.

Not to pick on you in particular too much but are you complaining about a lack of realism on a show dealing with the zombie apocalypse. Dale’s dead and I refuse to look that gift horse in the mouth. Space aliens could have showed up and killed Dale and I would have been fine with it so long as it meant I didn’t have to listen to him anymore.

Remember the CDC? Clean blood tests……Just saying.

The writers put the blood tests in the plot for a reason and just to have them come back all clean doesn’t really justify them being written in. I suspect there’s more to it than we’ve been shown so far.

Thing is, that zombie still looked better than most of the OWS people.

Oh come on, Jake is infinitely more obnoxious than that guy who bought it.

Must have been a…..stealth Zombie.

I liked Dale as well. I keep hoping that Rick’s wife is the next one killed off. As a whole though the characters are getting less and less sympathetic.

What I don’t get is that these people are sleeping in tents and feeling perfectly safe while zombies are walking around the fields.
