List Rules Vote up the moment on 'TWD' that made you give up on the show.

The Walking Dead has been a divisive show throughout the series' run. Since the threat of gruesome demise constantly looms over each and every character, fans can easily become alienated - especially when the writers decide to off a fan favorite. The show has made plenty of odd decisions over the years, such as toying with fans about the fate of a beloved character for a few episodes, only to have him return - then perish even more brutally at the end of the season. Truly, there are plenty of choices for determining the worst moments from TWD.

The show's once-imposing ratings have begun to diminish - as do those of all shows that trudge into their twilight years - but many believe those ratings-hits occur in tandem with some of the writers' more questionable decisions. TWD has given onetime fans many reasons to jump ship over the years. What was the reason you left?
