An excerpt: The Walking Dead continues to build toward the sixth season’s dramatic finale in Sunday night’s episode “East” (which may be a bit of a nod to the fact that today is Easter.) And while the episode was filled with good, tense action and some nice character development, it falls into a Walking Dead trap we’ve all become far too familiar with. Not long ago, I wrote a post (and made a video) called ‘The 5 Biggest Problems With Season 6 Of ‘The Walking Dead.’ In it, I discussed what I believe are the major shortcomings of AMC’s zombie drama, though I’ve thought of at least one more since then. (More on that another time.) Number two on the list dealt with characters acting out of character to further the plot, or force dramatic tension or unfortunate events. That, in a nutshell, is tonight’s episode. Two characters both act, if not entirely out of character, far more stupid and selfish than their characters would reasonably act. Daryl takes off after Dwight and Dwight’s crew, apparently to get revenge for the death of Denise, a character he barely knew. I do understand his desire for revenge, and I know Daryl is a hot-headed character. Nevertheless, going after five or six armed opponents by yourself is stupid and reckless even by Daryl’s standards.
