If you're invested in a TV series, it can be tough watching the protagonist making a decision you know to be dumb.

Having spent the previous episode exploring the goofy magnificence of Ezekial's Kingdom, The Walking Dead finally showed us Negan's true compound, and what life is like under his rule through the eyes of two characters - Daryl, his prisoner/hostage, and Dwight, his scarred lieutenant… who's a prisoner just as much as Daryl.
