    TWD: 9 Character Exits That Hurt The Show (And 11 Fans Want Back)

    The Walking Dead has been airing for nearly a decade. Since it’s first episode in 2010, it’s gained a major following and has become one of the most popular shows on television. Season nine just ended, and fans lost a lot of important characters along the way.

    While viewers are used to losing their favorite characters in the zombie apocalypse drama, there have been quite a few big names leaving the show the past few seasons, including Rick, Maggie, and Carl. A lot of them were characters fans thought would stick around for much longer than they did. It’s rare for a series to lose its lead and continue on.

    While losing a character can definitely attract viewers to a show and keep them glued to the screen, some of the losses harmed the show more than they helped. Those exits hurt the show in a major way, but they aren’t exactly popular characters that fans want back. Sometimes characters perish only to cause issues with the storyline. Other big names, however, like Glenn, are losses that fans would love to have reappear on their television screens. Here are 9 Character Exists That Hurt The Show (And 11 Fans Want Back).

    See the list at the link, it's too long to post here.

    https://screenrant.com/the-walking-d...its-hurt-back/

    I can't say I've seen even one person say they wish Dale was back on the show.

    I want Rick, Merle, Hershel, Glenn and Carl back.

    Do you agree with the list? Who would you want back?

    I was shocked at the inclusion of Lizzie and Mika. The article said fans are still debating whether or not Carol did the right thing. I probably like Carol less than anybody remaining on this board, but even I never questioned that she did the right thing. Fans hated it because it was a burden for Carol to have to drag around? Hell, dragging around burdens is Carol's sole purpose on the show.

    I don't know anybody, either, who wishes Dale were back. That's not to say that I haven't wondered upon occasion how Dale would have reacted to certain characters and situations. For an old man, Dale had a lot of growing up to do; so it would have been nice for him to stay around longer and grow up - except of course that we'd have to watch him do so.

    Bob Stookey? Seriously? Good luck keeping cough syrup on hand.

    Lori? "Her exit hurt the show more than some fans are willing to admit." The reasons it goes on to name are actually reasons that made the characters around at that time stronger and the show better. If they needed to put 20 characters in just to have 20 characters, then at least put her further down the list. Rick was #20 and Lori was #3. Unbelievable.

    Of course I completely agree with the inclusion of Beth Greene. Her death hurt the show and hurt a lot of fans who ditched the show (of those Beth fans I know) and the forums.

    I agree with Carl being #1 on the list. That was just boneheadedly ridiculous and has Gimple written all over it.

    Honestly I can only say I agree with Carl & Glenn's entries there. I mean, there were plenty of characters on that list that I liked & was sorry when they died (yes, including Dale!), but...I don't know. It just seemed like it was their time or it fit the story or whatever. There weren't really any that made me outraged. I'd like Rick & Maggie back, but it was the actors' choice to leave, so...

    This list isn't in any particular order is it? I can't imagine that Dale and many of the others having a bigger fan base than Glenn.

    I agree with
    Glenn
    Rick
    Maggie
    Carl

    I do agree that it hurt the show when Tyreese was killed off. I was waiting for him to get it together so it was disappointing to see him go down the way he did.

    Only ones that I want back are Dale and Merle. Would love to see how they would have dealt with some of the stupid shit Rick did.

    I didn’t agree with a good portion of this list, but do agree that Carl’s death hurt the show the most. I’m not buying that there are many fans that ever wanted Dale back or that Bob’s loss hurt the show. I do agree with Rick being lower on the list. The show benefited from Rick not being around and getting to know some of the other characters better IMO.

    My lists would be:

    Hurt The Show:
    * Carl.
    * Maggie.
    * Hershel.
    * Glenn.

    Want Back:
    * Merle
    * Simon
    * Dwight
    * Gavin
    * Abe

    I am surprised Andrea wasn't on that list...she is on mine though.

    I think Carl, Andrea, and Maggie hurt the show.

    I would like back Andrea, Noah, Glenn, Rick, Carl, Jesus, and Maggie.

    I’m pretty offended by the fact that Patrick isn’t on that list
