This really sux. I felt that things go south when they foreshadowed Maggie+Daryl conflict with Rick. It's like Lucile decision on who's going to leave the show. Basically: "You ask too much, bat you out we will." Fact that from character standpoint Maggie could have been lead instead of Rick was acceptable. But Daryl can't be lead, he's just too Daryl. It would be bad season about Daryl changing to Rick. And deviation from comic... "Too much, that's too much!" It is like part of season killed off by Rick absorbing Carl's message, story part.
