Like I said, no laws, nobody stopping them and on top of everything he's in deep grief. So clearly not thinking straight, just winging it on autopilot. It is also a shame, because Pope could be the leader of the Ricknation military wing. They've needed someone with a strategic mind for the job for ages and nobody has turned up to take it.I am shocked that Leah would be a loyal member of such an authoritarian religious cult. Pope, beyond being a tyrant, is obviously batsh*t crazy.
Leah was so fiercely independent when Darryl first encountered her in the wild. For months, she wanted nothing to do with him. A I recall, she wouldn't even accept a gift fish.
Secondly, I always wondered why we didn't see more ex-military groups surviving. They have more training and experience for survival in this world. The Governor's henchmen and the Saviours were just petty criminals in comparison. But equally violent and brutal it would seem.Pope erected a Private Military Company and Leah was part of its operations.
It was well done. As you say, they are Daryl's weaknesses, Leah and Dog. Wasn't sure why Dog just barked, but I guess he recognised her immediately....that woman he loved, Leah. We can blame Dog for that as well, for being loyal to his owner....
he was just barking on the side ... causing a lot of noise...
No, it doesn't seem in keeping with what we saw of her before, but... it does make for a better story!I am shocked that Leah would be a loyal member of such an authoritarian religious cult.
You did and I think you didn't read some of the post in the general thread, where Jeffrey Morgan and Norman Reedus claimed after reading the scripts that it was a return back to season 1. That they all felt excited and eager. In other words, this is the end time and we'll see them making their finale mistakes before Rick-movies.Maybe this series hasn't jumped the shark quite yet?

Bad Dog! The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus says he felt "betrayed" by man's best friend when Daryl (Reedus) reconnects with his dog's original owner: Leah (Lynn Collins). In Season 11 Episode 4, "Rendition," Daryl and Dog sniff out a familiar face when Leah returns after vanishing in the Season 10 episode "Find Me." Leah leaves Dog in the cabin where she and Daryl spark a romance, and when his old flame returns in Season 11, it's with the Reapers — a squad of scary-masked mercenaries who are "The Chosen Ones" commanded by Pope (Ritchie Coster). Daryl tries to leave with Dog, but he stays by Leah's side. That's ruff.
"I mean, it was her dog first. Maybe the dog is telling me that's Leah. Maybe he's helping me out. She takes off the mask, and the dog still doesn't come to me, but maybe he's telling me there's something good left here. I don't know. Who knows," Reedus told AMC.com. "On the day, I did feel a little betrayed. I was like, 'Come on!' But even if he's with his trainer and he doesn't come to me, I get sort of upset."
Reedus' canine co-star, named Seven, is better trained than Dog (who runs off into walker-infested subway tunnels to start the season). And even though Daryl is out of the frying pan and into the fire by the end of "Rendition," surviving a test that traps him with The Chosen Ones, no harm comes to Dog when he's reunited with Leah at Meridian.
"No, no, no, they like him. He's a good dog," said Reedus when asked if the Reapers hurt Dog. "And remember he was Leah's dog, so she won't let anything happen to him."
A live poll on a post-"Rendition" episode of Talking Dead revealed that 96% of voters say Dog belongs with Daryl over Leah, but Collins had this to say about Dog staying put despite's Daryl's commands to come: "Well, I mean, I've got a double-barreled shotgun (laughs). I think the dog is gonna stay with his alpha, right?"
