The key with Rick, and I didn't mean to rip on you cookie, is that in the books, he struggles with his sanity but nowhere near the degree they are doing on the show.
The reason Rick is a good leader is that he doesn't show his insanity in an insane world, that's what makes him so cool, and now he's waving a gun around and seeing Shane, Lori, who is next? Dale? It's retarded and upsetting that they are making the most important character into someone who needs a padded room.
Everyone else saw that, what are they supposed to think? He fell out of his tree? Of course! That doesn't make him a good leader so they are sh1tting all over it with totally unnecessary drama.
The key characters of the books are Rick, Carl, Andrea, and Michonne and while all 4 are still on the show, they are not together, they are scattered and divided and the only one that is stable is......Carl??
They are ruining the 4 main characters and trying to ruin Glenn too while they're at it and the one character they have added that brought something of value, Darrel, he's now run off with his long, lost psycho brother and ripped apart the group.
I think it all might work out in the end but come on, they are doing so much unnecessary crap, it's not even funny. I can take some but this is too much, mess with one or two characters to make it different, I could understand and accept that but they've gone off the deep end writing these shows.
