    Officer Bob Lamson: Good Guy or Bad Guy?

    Do you think Lamson was just a good guy caught in the wrong situation, or do you think he was a bad guy out to cause trouble for Rick & co?

    I've always felt he was a good guy. Noah had vouched for him and he had more exposure to him than we did as the audience. I do think that what he said to Rick was sincere, but he's human living in that fucked up world just like TF. He was being held captive and I think it's wrong to just expect him to trust TF without question. He attempted to escape. We can speculate all day as to what's he planned to do had he made it back to Dawn. We can never know for sure what his intentions were. All we know for sure is that he didn't want to remain a prisoner. Yes, he knocked Sasha out, but that was only to escape. He didn't try to kick her while she was down and attempt to further inflict damage on her. He created a window to obtain his freedom.

    I thought Lamson a bad guy.

    Lamson knew that TF's only objective was to retrieve their two women and that as long as he did what he was told, his value as a bargaining chip would keep him alive and uninjured. He chose to mindfuck Sasha to get the upper hand and escape. His intentions could not have been good.

    He and his are people who selected only the seemingly vulnerable to use as servants, so it's not like any of them were truly into "rescuing". Not only did they pick and choose who to bring in, but they offered no choice to those they took but would not allow them to leave.

    I think he was more bad than good. Obviously his loyalties were with Dawn. Rick and Co. treated him decently, especially Sasha. She gave him no reason to do what he did to her. That was uncalled for. I'm glad Rick ran him down. He obviously couldn't be trusted.

    Can't go back, Bob.

    I don't think he was a bad guy. He was just caught up in a situation where he had to do what he had to do to stay alive. Regardless, I still liked when Rick hit him with the car and told him to shut up when he shot him. That was vintage angry Rick.

    I think at heart he was a good guy. He simply made the wrong decision at the worst possible time. He was good, but not very smart. Smart enough to trick Sasha, yes, but not smart enough to realize the depth of the situation. If he had kept his mouth shut and sat still he would have been fine, and Beth may have actually lived.
