This is a discussion on What the hell is wrong with Andrea??? within the Episode 303 - Walk with Me forums, part of the The Walking Dead Season 3 category. "Originally Posted by 2gun I ain't saying she's a gold digger but ......... ♪♫♪♫ She ain't messin with no broke ..."
I have to agree with Andrea on the gender stereotypes. I'm not one to sit around and cook and do laundry.
I don't exactly have a great shot myself, but I'm a quick learner. I personally would want to help with actually surviving over doing lady stuff.
Just because a lady isn't typically a beefed up meat head doesn't mean we can't help with hard work.
I think Andrea is way too naive. I don't know why she chooses to ignore her better judgement; she used to be a lawyer, so you know she's smart, but she's definitely not using her lawyer brain in this new world.
I couldn't believe in the preview when they showed Andrea giving Merle directions to the farm! I know they shared a little moment when she told him about Amy, but WOW... Does she really believe he's only looking for Daryl and that's it?
Sometimes when you feel desperate, you do stupid things. She seems like she's been ill for a while, and finally finding someplace having the appearance of a safe-haven has probably skewed her judgement. From what she's seen, The Governor seems to have pulled together a really nice little town, and seems like he's letting any survivors he finds join them. Also, the fact that Merle seemed sympathetic when she told him that Amy died has probably made her more willing to believe he's changed.
Everyone makes mistakes... While she's annoying me lately, I don't want to hate her character just yet. Hopefully she'll pull her head out of her ass soon... When something seems too good to be true, it usually is. She, living in the zombie apocalypse, should know that...
my opinion of andrea solidified , in the comics, towards the prison arc. she hasnt really bothered me on the show to much because her characters experiences are so different from comic andreas up to this point. show andrea loves a good speech. it really seems to make her all moisty. now she seems smitten by the gov after his speech. I think there may come a time where she has to forget all the speech givers and stand on her own 2 feet and choose whos side she's gonna be on. for me, that's when her character will gel. or it will crumble into t-dog status.
Most women may not be psychically as strong as most men, but just because they are women, and just because they could easily lose a fight against a huge man doesn't mean they should be stuck behind playing house. You don't see Glenn having to stay behind and cook and clean just because he's not as muscular as some men. Your ability to survive in the zombie apocalypse isn't solely based on physical strength. It also has to do with strategy and intelligence, which women can excel in just as much as men, no question.
Michonne and Maggie both seem more than capable of getting shit done in the zombie apocalypse. And so does Andrea when she's not sickly or blinded by a sexy man's charms.
Carol and Beth can stay behind and do the laundry and cook the prison t-v dinners for everyone else. (also Hershel, since he's minus a leg.)
