15Rick And Company Are The Real Villains
The audience has always seen Rick, Maggie, Daryl, and all of their friends and family as the heroes of The Walking Dead. Of course, that’s because we’re seeing the events of a zombie apocalypse unfold from their point of view.
We see the group go up against the residents of Woodbury, take out those at Terminus, take over at Alexandria, steal Oceanside’s weapons, and even turn the Hilltop on its head, all in the name of preserving their own way of life.
Though the Saviors are currently painted as the show’s villains, it’s been pointed out over and over that their harsh system of living - and killing - is what’s been keeping their people alive, and Rick’s people are a threat to that.
Could it be that one day Rick and his found family will finally be shown as the bad guys? We’ll have to wait and see.
