    Rick's worst decision was marrying Lori.

    Ok, no, seriously:

    Worst moment: Jessie. The whole got damn shebang. From beginning to end.
    Best moment: Chopping of Jessie's arm.

    I'm sure yall thought I'd go w/ Richonne, but that ish was happening regardless. Jessie was unnecessarily unnecessary.

    The whole Jessie thing was OOC to me right from the start. Here is why: He is clearly on a 'survival at any cost' mode, he does not trust anything related to Alexandria, punched Aaron, wouldn't give apple sauce to his starving daughter before tasting it himself first. Yet, he drops his guard, lets some strange woman he met a few minutes ago, near his neck with a pair of scissors!! I did not know anything about Jessie and I was like, "whoa, wth!!" I mean Rick knew how Carol was, friendly, homely, at the same time, extremely deadly. Knowing women can be like Carol, it is bad writing that he let Jessie near himself right away. I asked myself, did she remind him of Lori that much? That he trusted her right away? It was interesting as well as a bad decision to go after Jessie Anderson.

    This reminds me of that moment when Rick says Carol's a "force of nature" which makes me change my worst moment. That was even worse than Jblah. Grrrrr

    Rick's best decision by far must be giving Alexandria a shot. It was so hard for him to trust this place enough to go into it after all the shit they experienced (Woodbury, Terminus), but ultimately he did give it a shot and it was worth it because they have a real place to call home now as well as many people to protect it.

    As for his worst decision, I think it's not killing Andrew. He should have made sure he's dead, but instead he just closed the gate as he was certain walkers would get him. Well, they didn't and it killed his wife and T-Dog.

    Worst decision: Not doing the proper due diligence before taking on the Saviors. A little more surveillance and research may have given them better Intel about who and what they were taking on. Not saying the Saviors wouldn't have eventually shown up but maybe they could have made a deal like Ezekiel's until they could figure out a way to beat them.

    Best decision: Not sacrificing an innocent (Michonne) to a psychopathic sadist (the Governor). Even if she hadn't later become his lover this decision was morally wrong. Had the deal gone down, whatever the Governor did to Michonne would have been on him. Also, his people and more importantly Carl would have looked at Rick in a completely differently way had the deal gone down.

    Rick's best decision so far was listening to his heart and finally letting Michonne in.

    Lori ultimately died by the gunshot to her head by Carl. Not his fault though because she clearly wouldn't have survived that C-section. It wasn't the walker that killed her though. I think you are right about the T-dog part.
