Here is this week’s The Walking Dead Power Rankings based on the character power influence on the show and on the story line, not on popularity. I refuse to watch The Talking Dead or see next week’s previews so that I can give a fair post and not have any spoilers. It is completely subjective!
While this week’s episode once again didn’t offer any character eliminations it sure wasn’t lacking in intensity! And it definitely had some eye rolling from me as well.
+1 Martinez – I should have considered him last week. But, it was this week that Milton pointed out if The Governor were eliminated that likely Martinez would be in charge of Woodbury. That caught my attention.
+10 Andrea – I’m dropping her even further because, once again, she had the opportunity to kill The Governor and did not. She is able to outrun his vehicle while being hunted down in the flats. Then she escapes his creepy, evil stalking in that house of horrors. After all of that she gets caught from behind by him outside of the prison? Please. And now she has a gag order.
9 Judith – I still believe Judith is and will be very relevant to the group in these last two remaining weeks. Again, she restricts the prison group’s mobility, stealthiness and resources immensely. Think about it.
8 Tyreese – Finally we get to see him actually play a major role in an episode. I’m still questioning what side of the fence he truly wants to be on with regards to Woodbury or not being in Woodbury. There was no way he was throwing Allen in the pit. But we did learn that he has some anger issues and he definitely did not attend The Annie Oakley Range Master School.
7 Merle – The shit should hit the fan here in these final two weeks. And I predict he’s going to be big part of it. There are so many intertwined angles that can play out here directly related to Merle. Him being selfish, him and his brother and him and The Governor.
4 Milton – Well, he has got himself into a huge can of worms. Apparently he likes to have a late night game of Bonfire of the Zombies. Argh, he’s so close to completely turning over The Talking Woodbury’s apple cart.
1 The Governor – I always knew he was powerful with access to a great amount of resources. But this week really impacted my opinion in how resilient he is. Was that like the Terminator or what (of course The Governor survives)? I also believe that only the surface has been scratched on this ticking bomb.
Where would you rank the characters on the entire season after this episode?
