I don't know, I guess I give Rick a little extra leeway because he was actually a police officer who received professional training in dealing with people who have broken the law. Now I'm not saying that means his judgement is infallible, I'm just saying that I trust his judgement in determining the proper punishment for a person over Carol's judgement in determining the proper medical treatment for 2 people who are sick with something she doesn't understand.
The people Carol killed were terminal and infectious, sometimes tough calls have to be made when resources are limited. Two wrongs don't make a right though, both sides were acting without the council's authority.
I partially agree with you. Both sides did act without consulting the council first. However, Rick led the group for so long that even the council still defers to his judgement from time to time and it has been shown that they have actively attempted to get him to take a more active role in the leadership of the group. In fact, I would be willing to be that if the community that has been created in the prison were to weigh both actions, they would stand by Rick's decision over Carol's.
Yes, tough calls do have to be made but where does a person draw the line? Under the same circumstances, would it have been ok for Carl to have killed Karen and David? What about Bob? Lizzie?
They built up Daryl's reaction by putting it off, which is a great cliffanger for next week.
I agree but I don't really expect Daryl's reaction to be as big as people are expecting it too be.
