I agree. The characters are so unlikable by the way they have treated him, when he's tried to show he could prove his worth if they gave him a shot.
Well, even if he has no impressive set of skills that's no reason to shoot him in the face. I mean, all Lori does is get knocked up by men other than her husband and crash other people's cars yet she's still there.
Seriously though, if they kill him, leave him somewhere for dead, or keep him at the farm but restrained I'm done with this show. Even on 'Talking Dead' Sunday night they had a poll asking viewers what should be done with Randall. Out of *4* choices 49%
of people chose "Let him stay and join the group".
This Randall story arc has the potential to turn in to the worst piece of writing in TV (or film for that matter) history. The dialogue and all of that is fine, but the whole storyline is awful, and completely out of character. The writers are trying, and failing miserably, to be hard-asses. They honestly want us to believe that the same man who trusted an entire gang of heavily armed cholos holed up in the middle of downtown Atlanta, that risked rendering his wife a widow and his son fatherless simply to go try and save a racist, sexist, homophobic and violent hick, and that didn't even punch the man who accidentally shot his son is now suddenly going to murder a 20 year old kid in cold blood. Someone young enough to be his son's older brother. All because some weeks prior he bit the bullet and stayed with a nasty group of out-of-towners that were passing through just so he would have a chance at survival. So much for Shane's "The right choice is the choice that keeps us alive" mantra. I guess that only applies to himself and the family he wants to steal.
It's a truly embarrassing plot development, and judging by the previews for next week's episode it's just going to venture even further in to uncharted vile nonsense territory.
