Darryl is one of the most likeable characters with a bit of development, him and Glenn.
So killing them hurts, Rick isn't a likeable character imo, and he's the main character, you sort of need to surround him with people others can like.
That makes more sense.
I am a bit irked at Rick´s way of handling Michonne, I´m pretty sure he´s given more leeway to the convicts.
Daryl has development?

I love how divisive Rick is on the show, that's a great and underrated bit of the comics that I think they're handling really well this season.
I'm convinced Daryl's going to die this season, be prepared.
I exclude T-Dog from that characterization statement because, frankly, he never had any real characterization. We learned more about him as he was dying, and then dead, than we ever really learned in over three seasons.
Darryl is a marked contrast to all that because he's accepted how the world is with little complaint, and kicks ass. It's a nice contrast to the cast's constant moping.
Can't wait for Walking Dead to return, this season has been on fire! And Michonne is so awesome, and so excellently portrayed here, very cool. And always nice to see "written by Robert Kirkman" on a TV episode. Kudos to all involved, long live Walking Dead!
i forgot about merle lying as well, although the scene with the governor asking merle who's side he was on earlier makes me think he's trying to work the crowd more so than being completely honest about believing merle betrayed him for good.
another thing i thought of was the scene where rick thought shane was attacking him during the firefight; i wonder if that was just a one-time thing or if it'll continue. i could see rick hallucinating more & more and seeing lori as well if it continues (separate from the phone thing).
and i'm counting 1, counting 2, counting 3...
