The Walking Dead has featured some of the most shocking images seen on prime time television, and has showcased some of the biggest character arches of any other show. Fans and other media outlets take those moments and turn them into some pretty incredible fan art and GIFS. There are more than a few out there, but these are some of the best that I have come across.
The "bicycle walker" was one of the very first walkers seen in the pilot episode. This also marked the point when Rick really learned what the world had become, and in my opinion, one of the most humane moments of the show.
Most of the time, we only get to see the aftermath of the virus, but in this moment, it is all explained.
Oh Dale, such a loving character, and some may say that is what led him to his demise. This specific scene was one of those that showed the true character of a person. What are the odds though that both parties involved here would eventually be killed by walkers.
The death of one of the most beloved characters on the show. Also, the first time that Daryl refers to any other male other than Merle as brother.
Probably one of the most over quoted lines of the series.
When Sophia stepped out of Hershel's barn, marked a point where more than one character would change for the rest of their time on [The Walking Dead](series:201193). Carol got a bit colder and Daryl and bit softer. It also put Rick on the spot to shoot a little girl that he had come to know and was a friend to his son.
This scene marked a big change for Carol's character. While this was an emotional turning point, I think it changed her for the better.
We've seen this side of Daryl more than once, and these actions are usually followed by a bad ass walker kill.
One of Maggie's most bad ass moments.
The introduction of Michonne, and man does she know how to make an entrance.
There were some serious mixed feelings about Lori, but you can't deny, no matter how you felt about her, this scene was difficult to watch.
Rick and Lori's relationship was on the rocks to say the least, and Carl is becoming a man. I love this one because it immortalizes a big turn in Rick and Carl's relationship as well as one of The Walking Dead's most emotional scenes.
Michonne's eyes in this scene summarizes the feel of the entire season.
This one is just kind of awesome.
Oh crazy Morgan. This line has been stated by more than one character on the show. I loved this entire scene between him and Rick.
One of the best walker kills.
A small glimpse into the past of Daryl and Merle.
I think everyone knew that whatever was about to happen was not going to be good, but this scene pretty much summed up Merle and his personality.
One of the Governor's most disturbing scenes.
Daryl's level of vulnerability in this scene added to the depth of the character, but also allowed him to get out the aggression of his past life with Merle and his father.
Michonne and her sword, nobody can chop off a walker's head quite like her.
One of Michonne's only emotional scenes in The Walking Dead.
Bob's past comes into light and Daryl is yet again, Mr. Bad Ass.
I lump the above three together because they are from with is without a doubt the most emotional scenes in the history of The Walking Dead, all coming in the mid-season finale of Season 4.
He killed a tank, I mean come on.
The big fight. Who wasn't hoping for Rick to just smash he head on the bus and be done with it?
Oh sassy Beth, just when I was starting to like you, they take you away.
A death that wasn't that shocking, but a lot of fans are far from happy about, it came quite recently, in The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 8, so exactly one year (in our time) after Hershel died.
Some of these GIFs are downers, but with a show with as many crazy lines and awkward situations, you know there are some fan made GIFs that are sure to make you smile. Here are some of the funniest GIFs inspired by The Walking Dead.
I hope these cheered you up. What are your predictions for what is coming in this season of The Walking Dead? Is Negan on his way?
