|What Deanna thought of Carol's sympathy note...|
|Andrea/Comic vs. Jesse/Show|
good cop that he is. She knows! It's the "sacrifice for the good of the people" - I haven't particularly cared for Deanna, but have been giving her the benefit of the doubt, because it's not an easy job. However, after she knows and still permits this behavior to continue so that the community can have a surgeon is despicable. She stands there and lectures about civility!? When Rick joins her at the grave site, he's civil and asks her how she's doing, and she confesses not well. They get in to a verbal debate; Rick is showing is cards about survival, and she's playing with an old non-existent deck. He's fighting for survival and she's fighting for civilization; Rick = Kill; Deanna = Exile. They butt heads and when it comes down to it she tells him if he were to kill Pete or anyone she would exile him too.
There is a great scene before this too when Rick is trying to reel-in psycho-Rick, when Pete happens to walk up (bad timing dude!). Rick turns to him in a very intimidating and warning way tells him to "Keep walking". If Rick tells you to keep walking, you better listen. And Pete does! He definitely got the hackles up defensive threat from Rick and heeded his advice. When Rick goes to Jesse, you know it's about to get crazy again. Rick confronts her about the abuse and tells her "It has to stop". Her response "Why do you care?... We have to take care of ourselves". When he's contemplating and looking around the normalcy of the town, you can see the storm brewing in him, and this is when I thought (the town needs a breach of the walls, let the people know there are huge threats in the world). But, Rick has his own way of doing things.
