mfirefly10: (TWD - Glenn/Maggie are perfection)
.

+ So I haven't been able to ~process my feelings over the finale through vidding because Sony Vegas is being a dick and I can't bring myself to watch certain scenes from that episode yet. Because of this, I shall express my thoughts through actual words :)

+ I am no stranger to character death. I watch far too many bleak/dark/apocalypse-type shows for character death not to be a bit old-hat by now. That being said, there are some character deaths that stick with you. Maybe because it was your favorite character, maybe because the death was particularly moving, maybe because it was a show-changer or you felt it happened at the wrong time/in the wrong way...I went into this finale with 6 favorite characters, dreading that any one of them could be killed. My fear came true.

(A warning in advance: this is quite lengthy)


MAJOR FINALE SPOILERS )
mfirefly10: (TWD - Michonne > zombies)
/

+ Before tonight's new episode, I wanted to talk a bit about The Walking Dead's Andrea. Andrea has once again become the fandom punching bag thanks to the choices she's made this season. On the one hand, I don't disagree that those choices were awful. But when you look at things from Andrea's point of view, all her of decisions make sense.


Spoilers for everything, to date )


So while I get why Andrea's choices seem ridiculous to us and I understand people's frustration with her storyline right now (after all, a lot of us assumed we were signing up for the Andrea/Michonne BFF road-trip of awesomeness and we got this crap instead), I don't think she deserves the hatred and criticism fans are piling on her. But who knows? Maybe the canon will prove that everything I just said was wrong and I don't understand Andrea at all. However, for now, I choose to believe all of the above.
