Rick: Season 2, ‘What Lies Ahead’

When Sophia scooched into the woods to escape the highway walkers, Rick chased after her, then told her to hide and run back to the road if he didn’t return when he went off to lure the walkers away. Nice move, leaving the terrified little girl alone instead of shepherding her back to her mom, dude. Flash-forward six episodes: Sophia was still MIA … until she emerged from Hershel’s barn as a walker.

‘The Walking Dead’: 17 Times You Wanted to Throw a Cream Pie at a Character

To celebrate the Oct. 22 Season 8 premiere of  The Walking Dead — the series’ 100th episode — Yahoo TV will be posting a new TWD-related story every day through the season opener.

In other words, 17 times one of the apocalypse survivors did something so unbelievably boneheaded that you knew immediately it was going to lead to trouble … or worse. We know, we know, even the sharpest, most capable people would make bad decisions with the stress and danger of living in the new world, but still… So that they may never forget, and never repeat, their mistakes, we say to all of the Walking Dead characters on our list: You get a pie, and you get a pie, and you get a pie … right to the face.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
