It was definitely realistic, but Maggie is my favorite character behind Daryl so I was gotten to.
I remember someone accusing me of being anti-female cause I panned Andrea and Lori hard in season 1/2, but the fact is they are/were just unlikable characters. So is Michonne. There is literally zero reason to care about or like these characters at all. Maggie on the other hand has been more badass than Michonne because her character is realistic and has actual layers to her.
GHOST Lori is pretty likable though. Doesn't say anything and causes Rick to spaz out.
