Think about it. First of all, the AMC drama’s range of baddies is so great that it includes everything from unhinged youngsters to treacherous cowards to man-eating beasts that aren’t even walkers!

Secondly, the atrocities committed by the antagonists at least occasionally fall into the category of “Well, it is the apocalypse.” And isn’t that how we justify a lot of our heroes’ morally questionable behavior?
