Living in a zombie apocalypse must be hard for anyone, let alone the leader of a group. Yet still, when this fictional horror happens, time and time again we expect a man to rise up and take command. It’s just human nature – some people are born to lead, and just need the reason for doing so.
Rick Grimes is one of these men. As the for-all-intents-and-purposes protagonist of AMC’s smash hit The Walking Dead, Rick has all sorts of problems. He began the series comatose, dealt with an unfaithful wife, a disrespecting son, various psychopaths and his rapidly-unraveling best friend, and that was just for the first two seasons. The third saw him engage in out-and-out war against another settlement while attempting to keep control of his own insanity.
Simply put, the man has it tough, so it’s only natural he’s going to make a bad decision every now and again. After all, nobody’s perfect, and when you’re under this much strain, it’s always possible that you’re going to screw up. So in honour of Walking Dead’s upcoming fourth series (which looks freaking awesome, by the way) I’ve decided to catalogue some of the Grimes Paterfamilias’ worst mistakes. If he can avoid errors of this magnitude this up-coming season, the prison might just have a shot.
Needless to say, there’s a SPOILER WARNING in effect.

The news all Breaking Bad fans had been waiting for finally arrived last Thursday with the announcement that the hit Vince Gilligan-created crime drama is getting a spin-off.
Entitled “Better Call Saul”, the prequel will follow Walter White’s dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman before he ever became associated with the former Chemistry teacher-turned-meth-cook.
AMC have confirmed the show will be one hour in duration and will take a more comedic slant to the gritty drama currently on our screens.
The news was welcomed positively by fans who are waiting for the show’s two final episodes before Breaking Bad reaches what is guaranteed to be a thrilling conclusion come the end of the month.
The chance then to see more from the Albuquerque-based show long after its official conclusion can only be a positive thing, and you won’t be hearing any complaints from us.
By designing the spin-off as a prequel, a ton of opportunities are opened up, such as reviving recently-deceased characters and giving supporting cast members more prominent roles.
And, of course, we’re thrilled we will be seeing more of Bob Odenkirk’s fantastic character Saul, the shady lawyer at the centre of this new venture.
But he’s not going to make this show a success all on his own and here we take a look at 5 Characters we want to see return for the Spin-Off.

SELENA GOMEZ suffered an awkward technical difficulty right before her live TV performance on “The View” on Thursday, according to the latest entertainment news.
Is Selena‘s song “Slow Down” jinxed?
Just a week after the pop star tripped and fell off stage during her performance of the song in Virginia for her “Stars Dance” tour, she suffered an unfortunate-and embarrassing-sound glitch on “The View” on Thursday.
And no, we’re not talking about her going out of tune.
Gomez was starting to sing her upbeat song when she made a false start, covered it up by saying she was “just kidding” and realized that something was wrong with her earpiece. She then later turned to her band and said:
“I can’t hear… I can’t hear myself.”
A few seconds of awkward silence ensued and the 21-year-old singer attempted to fill the dead air by scanning the room and offering small talk to a member of the crowd, before host Jenny McCarthy finally saved her and announced that they were cutting to a commercial break.
Selena had the chance to recover after the break… and she blew the crowd away with her sexy performance.
Watch the glitch and her performance below:
Do you think Selena handled the situation well?

The new doctor is in.
Whovians around the world are basking in the announcement just made by the BBC: the Twelfth Doctor on the beloved sci-fi program Doctor Who will be played by Peter Capaldi.
IT’S OFFICIAL! Peter Capaldi IS the next Doctor! http://t.co/MkFjVldAjv #DoctorWho pic.twitter.com/HC0Q9M3H9V
– Doctor Who Official (@bbcdoctorwho) August 4, 2013
“Being asked to play The Doctor is an amazing privilege,” Capaldi said of his new role. “Like the Doctor himself I find myself in a state of utter terror and delight. I can’t wait to get started.” [via the BBC]
The Scottish actor’s lengthy resume includes films World War Z, the upcoming Maleficent, and TV programs The Vicar of Dibley, The Thick of It and Skins.
Doctor Who trivia: Capaldi appeared on the second episode of the fourth series of Doctor Who as Caecilius, opposite Tenth Doctor David Tennant.
The announcement comes some two months after Matt Smith confirmed he would be stepping down from the role of The Doctor he portrayed on the small screen for three series from 2010 to 2013. His final Doctor Who appearance will be on the 2013 Christmas Special, the same episode the 12th doctor will be introduced in. (aka. REGENERATION).
The eighth Doctor Who series is scheduled to begin production next month, and will air in 2014.
Bless you, Mr. Smith.

Miley is coming for you, y’all!
Well, according to the latest promotional spot for the upcoming 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
In the just released clip, the 20-year-old singer makes a dramatic entrance at the Barclay’s Center Atlantic Avenue subway stop in Brooklyn. (Barclay’s is where this year’s show is going down.)
Miley goes on to strut her stuff to the tune of The Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep ‘Till Brooklyn,” leading the station’s tunnel people – a crew of hip looking party people, graffiti artists, and fire-breathers.
She also sporting her signature crop top, booty shorts, and gold jewels. It’s pretty cool.
Check out the spot, above.
Ms. Cyrus is up for three Moonmen for “We Can’t Stop” this year and she sure wants you to know about it. She posted an Instagram video on Monday where she spells “Miley for VMAs” using alphabet soup – a nod to her nominated music video. (You may remember her writing out “twerk” in the original.)
Late last night, Lea Michele tweeted an understandably somber-looking photo from the set of Glee’s upcoming fifth season, which began filming this month in the wake of Cory Monteith’s death.
It was the latest tease of sorts from the 26-year-old actress; on Monday she also told fans she “couldn’t have picked a more beautiful & perfect song to start the year with,” without actually revealing the title.
Privacy is, of course, a big deal for the show as it tries to incorporate the loss of Monteith, who died in July of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, into its plot. Last month, the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, told Deadline they’d shoot the first two episodes already written “so that people can physically go back to work.”
“We will then do an episode that will deal with the death of Finn’s character and follow that with a long hiatus,” he continued. “I don’t know how exactly we will come back, and we are trying our best with this attempt at damage control. We are planning a memorial for the cast and crew sometime this week on the Paramount lot.”
Michele dated Monteith on and off for years. On July 29, she thanked fans for “helping me through this time with your enormous love & support.”
“Cory will forever be in my heart,” she wrote.
Relationships were made AND tested on Tuesday’s episode of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars as Mona’s (Janel Parrish) confession helped Ashley Marin (Laura Leighton) get out of the big house, an old “friend” returned to Rosewood, and everyone celebrated Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) birthday.
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Tuesday’s episode, “Into the Deep.”
Happy Birthday, Emily! Your girlfriend, Paige (Lindsay Shaw), who apparently hasn’t seen previous episodes of PLL, thought it was a great idea to get everyone together and throw you a surprise birthday party at her aunt’s lake house.
Big mistake, Paige. Nothing good ever happens at the lake in Rosewood, nothing.
And Emily’s party was no exception. Not only did Paige and Emily have a major fight, which appears to be sending them on their way to breakup city, but PLL foe, Jenna Marshall (Tammin Sursok), was found face down in the lake after a confrontation with Aria (Lucy Hale).
Did someone knock her out to prevent her spilling the details on Alison? Was that someone CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray)? These are the questions we’re left wondering as this episode came to a close. Jenna and her friend/more than friend(?) Shauna (Aeri l Miranda) apparently think so but only time and Marlene King will tell.
Meanwhile, Jake (Ryan Guzman) got a peek into Aria’s (Lucy Hale) crazy life and instead of running for the hills, told her he’d like to help her “navigate” through it. The best part? She is going to let him.
I know Ezria fans may not be happy about this – especially after seeing Ezra’s (Ian Harding) jealously at the pair – but I really like Jake. He seems like a genuinely good guy and besides; he’s nice to look at and has no kids. I’m just worried he’s going to end up dead or something worse as a pawn in “A’s” game.
As for Ezra, I can’t see how a custody battle with Maggie (Larisa Olyenik) is going to end well or do anything good for his relationship with Aria but he appears game for whatever it takes to keep Malcolm with him.
Rekindled romance may be in the cards for Hanna’s (Ashley Benson) mom, Ashley and Ted (Edward Kerr) as the good pastor reached out to Hanna and apparently paid the $100,000 dollar bail set for her mom’s release after Mona’s confession.
And Mona. Oh Mona. Her confession has sent her back to Radley Sanitarium and with the most devious smile on her face, whatever plan she has seems to be falling into place, just in time for the penultimate episode of Season 4A.
OMG: I’ll go with the obvious here and say I was shocked when Jenna almost drowned but it was mostly due to the insanely creepy face Sursok had when pulled from the water. Did you see how big her eyes were?
Thank you, TV gods.: For some plot development!!
Awk-ward: So much jealously in Rosewood on this episode but none was more awkward than Jake and Aria at Emily’s party.
Hotness: Jake is rocking some serious abs, I mean, SERIOUS. Even Aria couldn’t look away.
Fab-u-lous: All of the PLLs were looking great before and during Emily’s bash. My faves included Hanna’s black shirt/coral pant combo and Emily’s Adidas track jacket. For more fashion info and where to get these looks, head to wornontv.net.
Can. Not. Wait.: To see what Mona is up to. Girl has obviously got some major plans in play.
Celebuzz (1-10): 8. Nothing tells you we are getting closer to the summer finale of PLL than tons of almost reveals and “Into the Deep” had plenty. As we inch ever closer to the big episode (airing Aug 27), I’m expecting a lot more to go down. I hope i’m not disappointed.
What did you think about “Into the Deep”? Who did you think knocked out Jenna? How do you feel about Aria and Jake!? Sound off in the comments below!
