A The Walking Dead Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on AMC
It began as the intimate tale of a father coming home, a man that met a delivery boy, and the boy introduced him to a sister (Andrea), to a husband (Morales), a brother (Merle), a daughter (Jacqui) and a son (T-Dog) that just so happened to lead Rick Grimes back to his own family.

They lost a brother on their way home, which re-defined Daryl Dixon as well as Glenn and T-Dog. Before they could rescue Merle, tragedy would strike Andrea, Carol and Sophia changing the roles they held onto. Before long, they would also lose a father figure, after Dale's last effort to keep them true.

Only the cop's family suffered no loss, only his son survived where others did not, only Rick's character remained unaware of the changes Hershel, Beth and Otis experienced first hand, and the changes that led Milton, Michonne and the Governor to the dark corners the audience found them.

It took the death of his wife for Rick to become a piece of a broken family, just like Carol was a piece of a broken home, Carl a piece of a broken childhood and they all just pieces in a broken world.

Option D, "other".
I watch the show because of the landscape.

If it was the comic, I'd say the characters, but now I voted other. In other, I mean the constant danger that is out there and threatens you in many different ways. Someone dies, he becomes one of them, zombies get in, they bite you, supplies may run off, you may have to choose between your beloved ones and your less-beloved ones. It's the difficulties of the new world that make this show unique

It almost feels like the bigger the threat the more the characters value their moments together. As if constant danger would make them aware of whom are the most precious for them, even after their loved ones are dead.
