“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
This inspirational statement by Helen Keller could not be more apropos to this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.
Come to think about it, this quote could sum up one of my favorite things about this entire show. TWD is not really about zombies; it is about the choices that people make in the midst of a world with no rules, safety or guarantees (also true about Jonathan’s book, The Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide for Teenagers). Really this show is all about character.
