Do you want an antagonist character like Larry in your group in season 2?

Or like Shane in the TV show, i think it adds a nice dimension to the group dynamic when you have someone who usually goes against you and doesnt agree with you,makes for some good drama. Would you like to have a character like this in your group in season 2?

  • Yes. What is anything without a bastard antagonist?

  • A more sophisticated, thinking one would be interesting. Larry, at the end of the day, was just a loud-mouthed dumbass. I mean everyone except Lilly couldn't stand him in the group. Imagine if we have an annoying person who could actually divide the group because of clever conniving or actually having some valid points to make etc.

    Thats my thinking exactly, a smart antagonist who isn't just a hothead like Larry who is hateful to everyone bar his daughter.Imagine if you became a leader of the group but then this antagonist got people to speak against you and doubt your leadership,then they become the new leader.

  • And yeah Crixus, TV Shane is a good example. He definitely got some folks, like Andrea, having second thoughts about Rick.

  • Another possibility for the antagonist could be that he was your friend at first but then seriously go against you after an incident or something. Kind of like if you go against Kenny in the Meat Locker but by like x100 times more! :D

  • I'd like to see someone like Larry or Shane, but I definitely don't want another Stranger-type character. Fuck that guy.

    Yeah i'd like it to be someone in your group,someone you know,perhaps was friends with for 2-3 episodes,makes it alot more personal that way.

    That would be a great idea! I think it would be quite emotional if you grew to be great friends with a character, then witness first hand his/her fall from grace as they begin to lose their mind or some such, and turn against you. Maybe you're even forced to kill said person to save yourself or the group.

    Yeah that would be like the whole Rick/Shane relationship in the show, and that was an emotional scene and it really changed Rick as a person aswell.

  • We've had the "friend turned enemy" person, and the hotheaded asshole person, this time I'd like someone who is quite crazy but hides it pretty well and comes off as a nice guy who helps around but with little subtle hints that there's something not right about this person. Think more like the St. John's but less obvious, and you don't really pick up on anything weird about this character for an episode or two, and near the end of the season becomes the main antagonist like the Stranger was but it would be better because we knew this person all season long.
