There is a god, because all my prayers just got answered.

BUT trying to get Reedus to take over is extremely dumb. They have actively made his character a grunting bore, and now they think they can just make him the lead and it'll make sense? And we will care?

Two major opportunities present themselves:
1) Give the show to JDM. Negan is the main character. We focus on Negan's "rehab" and get his full backstory.
2) Merge TWD and FTWD, and hope like hell it works. Although the only way I see it working is if Madison is still alive and she is the focus of the show. So this option only works if they haven't completely fucked FTWD, which is not looking promising at this point. Prior to the crossover, the merger would have been the best option, but losing Frank Dillane and weird shit going on in season 4 right now means that even a full merger is not looking great right now.

There are other options, like maybe Carol or Michonne taking over the lead, which would also be cool, but they screwed Daryl up. He isn't an option. People no longer shout "if Daryl dies, we riot". That was years ago, AMC. No one wants him in the lead. It wouldn't make sense. They haven't in any way developed his character into a leader, unlike the development of Madison, Carol and Michonne. Give the lead to a woman. Your show is dying anyway. At least give us some good female badassery before your ship totally sinks.

Plus, think of what kind of message a Daryl-led show would send. "It's okay, kids! You don't have to ever bathe! Look at the star of our show, he definitely doesn't!" XD (Had to do it, had to do it.)

I fully support the Give TWD to JDM option. I would watch the crap out of The Walking Negan. I agree that a full-on F/TWD merger could be tricky, but it could work. Maybe Morgan will serve a purpose after all - lead the FTWD survivors back to TWD. (But if you could kill Naomi along the way, that'd be great.) Plus, I would looove to see Madison make TWD her bitch.

I've heard rumblings of Danai maybe not sticking around for too much longer, either, but I don't believe there have been any legitimate sources on that. But with all the Marvel things going on, I don't think it's totally out of the question.

There are still Daryl fangirls, but they're definitely not as loud as they used to be. (Was the thick layer of grime a turn-off? XD) Agreed about the downfall of his character, and on top of that... I really don't think Reedus is a good enough actor to pull off being the lead. I mean, I love Reedus, but let's be honest - he is not a great actor. Also, Daryl is not leader material. I still don't buy him being right-hand-man material.

But a Carol-led TWD? I'm down. Let's go, McBride!

Imagine Negan and Madison teaming up... to murder Prick.... *orgasms*

I can totally see Danai leaving. She has other options now, and they have relegated Michonne to 'Girlfriend of Prick', so she has no reason to stick around.

I think Reedus pretty much gives the best grunt on tv, but that is not a skill that translates to important character material, let alone leading man material. Plus his Cousin Itt hair would need to finally be cut and how on earth are they going to factor in THAT event given it has been 9 dang years of hair-face.

The only problem with Carol being in charge is that she'd solve the whole apocalypse in 1 episode and the show would be over... that settles it: put Carol in charge so we can be done with this.

YES GIVE IT TO ME *murdergasm*

No Prick. No Coral. It was nice knowing you, Michonne. I'm sorry they wasted all your glorious potential.

If we're getting rid of Prick and Maggie, I may not want to be done with this. They have been my biggest gripes since I can remember... will I actually like the show without them? I can't wait to find out. XD

I'm agreeing with pretty much everything you guys said! I was late to the news, I went to the movies. That's what I get for having a life, I miss out on these great conversations!! Hell no to Daryl being the leader. Hell yes to Carol being the leader! McBride can pull it off and maybe fix the wholes in this sinking ship with her amazing talent.
