In this episode we discuss an interesting point of characterization we like to call “hidden characterization”. This is a kind of dramatic irony where the character’s actions do not match up with their external motivation for doing the action. It has been used infrequently in fiction and in television as in novels such as “The Great Gatsby” and as recently as season one of “The Walking Dead”. We also discuss the final episode of season 5 of “The Walking Dead”, but we don’t pull any punches or knife stabs to the cranium. It’s full of spoilers, but we warn listeners repeatedly before discussion….and if you haven’t seen the final episode by now, then shame on you.
