That is a fair point. To be able to survive a zombie apocalypse, you can't be too soft; that particularly applies to the leader. It is best that he adopted a little Shane. Still, I totally didn't see that
Ugh, I don't even want to talk about Carl. I mean, he is noticeably better than he was. Took orders from Rick without question, and his attitude seems to have improved. He has definitely matured somewhat. I have to appreciate and be thankful for that. You're right, though. He is still an annoying little s---. Lol, have you seen the 'Get Out of Here, Carl!' tumblr? If not, you should check it out. It is really quite funny.
I know, right?! He is one of the -- if not the -- biggest assets to the group. They may be slightly shorthanded, but there is no excuse to risk the medic. I mean, what Rick did will probably save Hershel, which is great, but they now have a serious problem on their hands. Yes, if Rick hadn't done it, they would have lost their medic altogether, but such a valuable member of the team is now basically immobile. It isn't like they can just go out and get a prosthetic. They'll be lucky if they can get their hands on a wheelchair, or even a set of crutches. Even then, it will seriously slow them down. Plus, wheelchairs and crutches can't exactly conquer all types of terrain.
