Breaking Up in the ZA

I can’t help but feel like Rosita is getting the short end of the stick here. She seems to have come to rely on and expect Abraham to be around. They’re in a relationship, they lived and slept together. And he was needlessly cruel when he broke up with her, in what I deem to be his haste to get to Sasha.

I’m not hating on Sasha. Personally, I think she deserves a love interest after all this time and the shit she worked out (i.e. her suicidal feelings after her brother died) I didn’t think of Abraham as a likely candidate, but I do see their similarities.

Michael Cudlitz talked to Entertainment Weekly about the love triangle. He had this to say about Abraham in the situation-

It’s the zombie apocalypse. What, now there’s rules? No, look, he sees a lot of himself in Sasha, things that he has respected his whole life — the strength that she has on her own. I think in a lot of ways he feels like he’s protected Rosita, and he’s brought her to this point through training her, and here is someone that he’s looking at, and he’s seeing an equal who will call him on his bull. So he’s attracted to that. So, you know, we’ll see what that really evolves into.

“I think when characters have hope and they know that there’s a future, they reassess, and I think he’s going through a major reassessment right now knowing that. [Abraham] has sort of said, “Okay, this is where we are, and I’m not going to live any lies.” I’m going to move forward, and I’m going to do what I have to do.”

Be that as it may, from a woman’s perspective, Abraham was a real A-class asshole. Imagine the scenario- you’re about to storm a complex the next day and risk your life to rid yourself of a threat, and your lover walks out on you!!! Of course Rosita would want to be with him, she certainly had feelings for him. She made him that little red memento necklace, and Abraham carelessly left it behind. I felt sad watching it lay on the ground, unretrieved. I feel bad for Rosita, although she is getting the mayor’s son’s ass out of all this for her rebound so just how bad should we feel for her? (He’s an improvement, imo.)

Abe was just so damn mean. She stops him at the door before he can leave, and he grips her arms and says, “When I first met you, I thought you were the last woman on Earth, but you’re not.” >__< What an ass!! As if breaking up in itself isn’t horrible enough, knowing it’s for someone else makes it ten times worse.

New addiction: Walking Dead

I know this show has been around for awhile now, but I just got into it and let me tell you I AM HOOKED. I am even being a good girlfriend and waiting for my boyfriend so we can watch them together, when normally I would blaze ahead of him. He gets discouraged when I watch things ahead of him, so I have been patient, very uncharacteristic of me when it comes to me and my shows lol =]

I’m on season 3 now and I’m basically like “don’t bother me, nothing productive is getting done so long as I have so many episodes left- must.watch.” I’ve been known to ignore what Jake is saying while the show is playing. I selected the above picture because I really liked that dynamic of the show. Shane was such a complex character, I both liked and detested him at times. I thought he might be a more aggressive kind of leader over Rick since sometimes Rick made stupid decisions, like staying so long in one area looking for a girl they all thought might be dead.

I was sorry to see him lose his shit. He was wily as a mother fucker, that Shane. I enjoyed the energy and tension he brought to the show. I was amazed by his swan song, how he betrayed Rick and got him alone in the forest. I realized it was a scene long coming, and I was surprised that Rick went all out like he did. I was shocked when he came back from the dead and Carl was the one to put him down.

Maggie and Glenn are one of my favorite couples. Glenn is one of my favorite characters over all. Maggie sees his true value right away when she meets him. Their first run into town together was very enlightening, and we saw Glenn come more into his own protecting her, the farmer’s daughter. I really enjoyed Herschel and his family being brought into the show. Glenn was a bad ass when he was getting tortured, refusing to give up camp like he did. He truly is a good strategist, and no time like when he was first introduced in Atlanta showed that.

I also really love Daryl! He is truly a valuable member of the team. He is very intuitive for his redneck roots. He’s certainly an asset, and I was upset when he abandoned the group to be with his brother. Who ever liked Merle?

Another character I also like is Michonne, despite how little I know about her. Anyway, I’m going to keep watching soon!!
