    toast.

    I haven't read this diary, because I don't know if it contains comic spoilers, but this pattern is ridiculous. Morgan -> T-Dog -> Oscar -> Tyreese.

    I posted on Facebook that it was okay two have two black guys on a show at the same time, without mentioning the walking dead or details, and everyone knew immediately what I was referring to. What they are doing is so blatant it is insane.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      I didn't read too much into the Oscar Era....I assumed the fact that we even learned this character's name may have simply been a bit housekeeping necessitated by the availability of the actors playing T-dawg and Tyrese.  And the show needed someone to die on the wall in this episode.  It wouldn't have been a significant way for T-Dawg to cash out.  It would have been an unacceptable cost.  I thought the actor did well, but Oscar the character  was more Red Shirt than Black Man.
