He's probably the only one without lice.

I can see why he would be wary and distrustful of Daryl and small-town cop Rick, but maybe the writers could pry Glenn from Maggie's arms long enough for a bonding scene between him and T-Dog.

Or really, spend less time on Carl and Lori, even Hershel. There is no way in hell a main character who has been in nearly episode should be at this point with us not having heard a single thing about a mother, a father, a sister, a brother, other loved ones, a girlfriend, a wife, a son, a daughter, something! They have given other characters like 5 different sides - emotional, dangerous, happy, scared, reflective. They've given them flashbacks and allowed them to sit and tell stories of their loved ones, how they died. Hell, we know more about Jenner than we do T-Dog! It is ridiculous. Give us some time with the man where we get to know him. Come on writers!

My favorite T-Dog line remains "Good thing we didn't do something stupid like shoot it" from the well walker episode. Someone capable of a great laconic line like that deserves more great laconic lines.

I'm holding out hope that T Dog is actually the father of Lori's baby. It would give him a story line and shake up the rest of the group something fierce. There is no chance this will happen, of course, but it makes me happy to think about it.
I'd like to think that Theodore (I hate his nickname) has better taste than to sleep with Lori.

Let's see if we can get T-Dog into cult favorite status like Daryl. At least give him a fighting chance to last the season.

He really should get more screentime. And also not die.

Also, here's another one for the list, which I just tweeted: "T-Dog's got this."
Technically he said "We've got this", but I prefer to think that he was using the royal we.

The Diary of Theodore Douglas, circa 90 days post walker apocalypse:
O Diary! How difficult it is to continue to hold my tongue as I watch my companions engage in ever more foolish shenanigans. As I have written often, I speak as little as possible so as to prevent their discovery of my English heritage, and Oxford scholarship. It seems my efforts to elocute with an appropriate regional accent and dialect, and to conceal my education and breeding from these Neanderthals, have been successful, but it grows ever more diffucult. I doubted my decision early on, but I believe I was quite right to hide my true identity so as to avoid the class resentment and xenophobia against Europeans for which these American "rednecks" are infamous. My earlier attempt to broach their coarser tendencies with the older, hirsute gentleman named Dale was not successful. I admit I am thwarted by my ruse, as it severely limits my communication capabilities. I hoped to establish a rapport with Dale such that I might gently reveal the truth (and my accent), but alas I was rebuffed and was not able to find another opportunity. Some time ago I nearly slipped and gave myself away during a pistolry lesson, but I managed to divert their attention by instructing a young man to "knock off that gangster stuff." I don't really know what that means, but the phrase came unbidden and I uttered it. Fortunately, it was successful, and they appear none the wiser. However, the experience was frightening and I have resorted to saying as little as possible, unless I must speak to prevent these fools from overlooking critical developments around the camp.
Oh dear, there is quite a commotion in a field near our camp. I must sign off for the evening -- until later, dear diary, until later.

I'm seriously concerned that when Merle comes across the group, he's going to kill T-Dog. Or at least try to kill him. It would make sense, but it would also bum me out SO much! My only hope is that they won't kill him off because he's so under-developed, so they think most people won't care too much... but I think a lot of people would care, including myself, and that's what scares me!

We need a "Save T-Dog!" campaign. I'm sure Rick has to be safe, since I doubt the showrunners would willingly shift protagonists, but besides him, T-Dog, Daryl, Glenn, or Michonne dying would be the end-all for me. I would miss Carol and Hershel, but they wouldn't be deal-breakers for me. Everyone else is expendable. Plus I like the Rick/Daryl/T-Dog trifecta they've got going this season. If Daryl is Rick's lieutenant, then I would say T is their captain. So far T is a well of untapped potential, and I really like Iron-E as an actor, so I hope he gets more and more meat added to his character this season.
