    • My Opinion!

      I personally like Tara, she has become one of my favourite characters under Beth. I feel like she is strong and independent and I feel like we wil see more of her character in the second half. I also think she will outlive Lily! I feel like Alanna Masterson plays her very well!

    • I dislike Tara at the moment but I can see my opinion of her changing. I found her trying too hard to be tough attitude irritating. A good example is the "Smith and Wesson girl" conversation that I found cringeworthy. If she stopped trying to be tough then I can see her evolving into a decent character.

      I think at that moment she was just trying to impress Alisha!

    • i always saw tara as a girl trying to act tough in order to protect her family, maybe acting too much. Then we saw her reaction to hershel's death and when daryl's grenade explode, it shoke her and it showed that she's still this scared girl. I think Tara has a lot of potential if written right and could become like comicAndrea.

      i did not like her relationship with alisha though. I like both characters, don't mind a gay character, but like what Cam said, the whole "smith and wesson girl" conversation made me roll my eyes and then the next scene they're running off together.

    • I like Tara and her attitude. She's tries to be tough to protect her family, which adds some humor to her character. She seems cool. Similar to Maggie, only less tense.

      When the prison battle began, she was the only one with any sense and saw that TG was psycho and didn't participate in the battle (yeah she followed the tank up to the fences, but knew it was time to GTFO when the soldiers started dying).

      Looking forward to her joining the main group! I like her over Lily. Think Lily will die (she's too upset over Meghan's death, which can cause her to be reckless)

      But wasn't she also the first, who agreed with the Governor's plan at his speech to the Trailerpark-Folks? And she was also adressed directly by Rick and didn't say anything then although she probably already felt that he's right. That's why I don't really like her.

      Valid point. At first, she didn't really know any of the prison group and probably visioned them as bad guys, ruthless killers, etc. But after hearing Rick, she began to grow unsure of the decision to attack the prison, and even hid when the shooting first broke out.

    • I like her, she's a different type of survivor, there's the hardened ones like Rick's group who've lost people and gone through a lot yet her family managed to stay safe in the same place for a year.

      Meghan and David didn't last long, I hope the Chambler sisters do, Tara has a lot of potential and I hope they don't waste that. She could be a really awesome character.

I hope that they fill in the gaps of each others' stories, such as the fate of hershel (rest in peace,man). I'm eager to see them fighting walkers in riot gear and that they're not tossing the prison away and never seeing it again like in the comics. Glenn is still pretty weakened by the after-effects of the dreaded flu, so Tara can "protect" him, more or less (he'll probably save her though).

    • The worst thing Tara ever said was "m4... isn't that more of a close quarter weapon, wouldn't want to use that on the battlefield" or some bullshit like that. OK fuck you Tara do you think if someone had any type of an assault rifle in the zombie apocalypse how lucky they would be? She acted like Alisha had a huge choice to choose from plus we know she doesn't actually do shit to help anyone so idk we she felt like saying that. Oh well I guess it worked cause they had scissor sex later.

      But besides that I'm glad she survived instead of Lilly who looks like a shitty B movie zombie actor

      Plus the actress who plays her is hilarious.

    • She's okay but sometimes she tries too hard with the attitude. I liked her the first time we saw her, but in this episode I found her a little boring. Although IMO, she won't last the season anyway. She'll help out Glenn but I can certainly see her being killed this season.

    • Considering she has nothing left to lose she will definitely be on a redemptive path in the next 6 episodes. I'd imagine she'll be an emotional wreck considering everything that's happened in the past few days. We can tell she definitely feels guilty (despite not firing a single shot and not doing any damage herself). No one will like her at first, but by the end of season 4 she'll have earned her place

      She's homosexual. In other words, she likes women. In other words, she's a lesbian.

      I think she needs to get more development before I can voice an opinion on her. I think the upcoming episode might help with that. I'd be dissapointed if she ends up dead tho. She's the only lesbian in the show, as far as I know.

    • While the character is admittedly pretty wooden so far and the actress isn't all that impressive, I definitely do think she'll be in for at least another season. She's pretty important now that she's our first and only LGBT representation on the show

    • She could always be bisexual... just saying. Hell I think it would make her A LOT more interesting as a character if they did do that, BOOM relationship with a man. Though I doubt the writers will go that route, I just wish as the first gay tv series character... she wasn't so cheesy - I'm all for variety and equal portrayal of different characters though,just a tad surprised it took them 4 seasons to write one in.

      Though the obvious appeasement to the LGBT community with her as a character aside, she is starting to grow on me despite first impressions of her just trying to be 'tough' (I kinda laughed, I mean a lesbian character who acts tough... kinda cliched don't ya think?). More so in recent episodes I've warmed up to her due to the fact she has been helpful to Glen and is clearly remorseful in how the prision situtation turned out, she was ignorant to how terrible the Governor was and wants to make up for it.

        Loading editor
    • I actually really like Tara, and the development we've seen of her character.  Everyone wants to pick on her "acting tough", but let's not forget that she's essentially a Season 1 character dropped into Season 4.  Her family has been safe and fed for the last year and a half - no running from hordes of zombies or fighting against other humans.  She didn't even know how to kill zombies until the Gov  told them.  Of course she was "acting tough", she hadn't been in much danger, and was trying to act how she thought would protect her family.

      Since losing her family and realizing the man she'd placed her trust in was evil, she's been on a self-prescrubed mission to make up for her role in the fall of the prison - and I think her character is developing by leaps and bounds.  I also find her loyalty to Glenn very touching.

    • Tara, at first didn’t seem like much of a character to me. She didn’t stand out as someone who I could relate to and I thought maybe she would become a very annoying character but I was surprised by the last few episodes. She has a conscious, she is quickly learning reality and how the mechanics work. Her being charmed by Phil is pretty much understandable, he charmed his way in and performed tasks that garnered their trust. If you consider her lack luster sister and her niece, she needed to be somewhat tough, as protecting them all probably fell on her shoulders. She hasn’t dealt with dead, people or experiences that harden into her what the other characters are.

      After the whole prison conflict, she is quickly evolving into a redeemable character and one with touching loyalty. Even if she hadn’t fired a single shot, or inflicted any physical damage any one, she was still a part of the group that did. She admitted she was a piece of shit and I respected her all the more for saying that. I quickly related to her after the prison conflict.



      I hope she stays around for a while and is fleshed out into a decent character. The other female leads are not to my liking very much, but Tara is someone I can easily see being someone that I can connect to. Don't kill her off! :(.

        Loading editor
    • She is pretty much a win for the whole group. She is just a real normal person everyone can relate to. Maggie and Michonne always seemed a bit exagerated to me. Michonne is just too much of a badass, Maggie is mostly the hot girl. Nevertheless both actresses deliver a really great performance! But they are very much "caged" and thus limited in their roles.

      Same for Beth: The young and immature counterpart to Maggie - interesting for her developement as a girl growing up (Thanks Daryl), but still the little farmgirl with her pretty boyfriend (RIP Zach) and her ambition to kill herself (Puberty anyone?).

      Rosita - well ... Danger for Maggie. Another hot girl ... in Panties! Has not much lines and is thus reduced to her looks. Somehow fitting to her role as a girl exchanging comfort for security. But still ... very reduced.


      Tara is much more wider. She is a normal looking girl with a normal background. The only thing not normal is her sexual attitude and still - i like it. its jut realistic to have gay characters in the show. It makes the whole situatiojn just a bit more "realistic" as a group is more than just the summary of their individual roles inmist the group.


      I d say Tara is one of my favourite characters.

      Dale, Daryl, Tara, Hershel. Looking forward to season 5!

      First of all, take a look at my avatar. It's a picture of Audrey Marie Anderson, who played Lilly. She has years of modeling and acting experience. She was in a tv series called "The Unit", many movies and is now in the tv series "Arrow". I thought she did an excellent job as Lilly and found her very interesting. Also, she was a nurse and Rick's group just lost Hershel. She could have also been good with Rick. But I guess people think Tara deserved to live instead because she would be more fun.

      Check out my avatar. It's a picture of Audrey Marie Anderson, who played Lilly in TWD. She is older than Tara, but I think just as lovely. I don't understand how people seem to feel so sorry for Tara because she was tricked by the governor, but think Lilly is a slut because she was tricked and became romantically involved. How do we know that if Tara had been heterosexual she wouldn't have been taken in by his charm as well?

    • I had no problem with lilly personally, I would've been ok if she lived too, but just Tara is good too. I think the writers felt like anyone who romantically involved with the villain can't really be redeemed, sort of like andrea. I would've liked to actually see lilly die so we what actually went down. Tara said she joined the assault for her family, but she didn't realize that the people at the prison were good people and they're the ones in the wrong until Hershel's death. And rematch ing that episode Tara was in the courtyard with Alisha while lilly was in the field, and by the time Tara saw lilly out there it may have been too late anyway.

    • I think the story was poorly written about Lilly's death. In the episode "After", Tara said she saw her sister and didn't know why she was there. She was 20 feet from where Lilly drove up with her dead niece and she didn't see her? Okay, then in the episode when she and Glenn are in the train tunnel, she said she found Alesha dead, then saw Lilly in the field get taken down by walkers. She even said she saw her dead niece, who would have been all the way back where the tank was before the battle broke out. She must have the eyes of an eagle. There was so much confusion that no one knew if their loved ones were alive or dead---except for Tara. Wow...

      Check out her gallery. Also, I don't get that everyone who slept with the governor is automatically a hoe. She had no idea what he was and their relationship didn't start for weeks after he showed up at the apartment. It's not like she jumped his bones the day he arrived. Tara was in the sack with Alisha in a minute. Does that make her a hoe? Also, you do realize that the actors are in character and thus do not necessarily look in real life what is shown on the tv series? I'm afraid people seem to be judging Lilly on her appearance rather than the fact that she was a good person and was against the prison attack from the beginning. She was a nurse, which would have been much more helpful to the group than comedy relief by Tara. Also, unlike Andrea, as soon as Lilly found out what the governor was, she took action and shot him in the head.

      They knew him for I want to say a week ( I'm not entirely sure) and those days is what cost them. And yes Tara is the younger and the more useless of the 2, but I think that's sort of the point as to why she's the last one standing. That family was nice to see for those 3 episodes and I wish we saw more of them. Meghan was cute , although I thought lilly was a little boring she wasn't a bad character, and Tara is defiantly my fav new character from s4 and she's still there so we can get more out of her.

    • If you get a chance to watch "Live Bait" again, check out the bathroom scene when the governor has a head wound. In the next scene, he's at the table playing chess with Meghan. His head wound has completely healed. I think a lot of people thought they were only in the apartment a day, but it had to take a couple of weeks for the wound to heal.

      I think a lot of viewers thought he was there a day or two. The writers tried to cram too much into those episodes. I agree they didn't make the timeline very clear, which resulted in viewers thinking Lilly was a slut for sleeping with him.

    • I believe it was only a few days for live bait because the dad was quickly dying and wouldn't have lasted a few weeks and they left the next day. Dead weight may have been a little longer after he killed Pete, that may have been a few weeks, but idk for sure

    • The writers were not clear on the time lapse. The only indicators were physical and I used the governor's head wound to gauge it. His wound could not have healed in a day and we can only guess how long the dad lived after the governor retrieved the oxygen.
