    @KateFredericks – If you watched the Talking Dead, the creator had said that Hershel wasn’t even suppose to live this far, he was suppose to die before season four or three, i forgot. But Yes i did sob when * SPOILER*……… The Governer chopped of Hershel Head, but he said ( the creator) that He only lasted that long in the seasons because he believed that Hershel still needed to be around to teach Rick a few things. And I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS MID-SEASON PREMIERE!!!!!!!

      Dear WD Fan, I actually watch the Talking Dead every week and heard him saying that. But that was his opinion. I was just saying it would be nice to keep an old man alive in that kind of society. But, he’s gone, it hasn’t affected the series all that much and I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS MID-SEASON PREMIERE, either!!!!!!!!!!! Time will drag until then!

    SPOILER—– You have been warned if you DVR The Walking Dead and haven’t seen it yet! When I stop weeping over losing Hershel in The Walking Dead, I want to ask these shows WHY they keep killing off the really beloved, really wonderful characters on these top-rated shows. Do they have a death wish (meaning a show death wish)? They kill Carter in Person of Interest, NOW HERSHEL??? OK studio people, enough killing off the beloved characters for a while. Personally, I can’t take it, and while my husband watched POI last week, I couldn’t! Now HE says he’s not going to watch TWD any longer!!! Stop killing our favorite characters, PLEASE? Seriously, Hershel living would have been a far riskier move (snotty critics HATE it when things get too predictable). I say it would have been cool to have a man Hershel’s age make it to the end of the series. RIP, Hershel. You will be sorely missed. Governor? They should have shot you when they first saw you on top of the tank 😉 .

      Well, WDF, I was watching something the other day and a commercial came up for the continuing premiere of TWD. My heart actually stuttered as I whooped with joy. It’s been too long and the seasons are too short for me. TWD is, for so many reasons, in my top five favorite shows – and possibly hits the top. I still think it would have been better to keep Hershel, this old grumpy guy, til the end, but this is still not as bad as what happened in the hallway when Lori had the baby and Carl had to clean up afterward. Not an unexpected event under the circumstances that these people live, but still a terrible loss. And that is why this show is so brilliant. As awful as many scenes have been, as sad as I get when a character is killed off, I never feel like any of it is done for effect, but is done because that’s what will happen when society topples and the wilderness takes itself back. I am so glad it’s starting up again not this coming Sunday, but the next Sunday, February 9. Something to look forward to again!
