After their truck is sabotaged on the way to Washington, Glenn, Maggie, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosa are forced to look for alternate methods of travel. Skin and flesh are blasted off of the bone and the dead are practically liquidated into puddles of loop on the floor.
Norman Reeds' character Daryl has a lot of awesome walker kills throughout his nine-year tenure on the show. Having recently split from the group, he and his big brother Merle come across a family trapped on a bridge by walkers.
The best kill of the scene comes when Daryl slams the trunk of a car shut on an unfortunate walker’s head. The head explodes in a flurry of bloody brain chunks, looking real and gross enough to disgust even the most die-hard horror fans.
It had our first major confrontation between Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Jon Bertha’s Shane and some wonderfully gory zombie moments. Just when you think the two of them are completely trapped, Daryl does his best Ghost rider impression, swinging the chain above his head and decapitating three walkers in one go.
This fantastic scene may get lost within the blur that was season seven, but that'd be a shame because it's one of the show's coolest zombie set pieces (and, according to executive producer Greg Nicole, one that very nearly didn't happen). Originally the scene called for some walkers to be blown up with a stick of dynamite, but when Nicole got to set and saw the explosive wire strung between the two cars, he had an even better idea.
The scene sees the show's power couple Rick and Machine take a car each and drive down the highway, slicing the walker horde in half with the wire. Not much liked by the other groups in the show and often despised by the audiences at home, their time on The Walking Dead was a mixed bag.
After Janis/Anne, the leader of the trash folk, has a tense introductory meeting with Rick, she forces him to prove his worth in an arena-style death match against the spiky Winslow. Unlike the normal, everyday walkers the group have encountered so far, the undead at the prison are a different breed.
As soon as he gets close, however, the audience sees the cold, dead eyes and the rotting, pale skin that would come to typify the early walkers on the show. Only in a list about The Walking Dead (and maybe Game of Thrones) would you find two entries about killing children.
Her mother, Carol, cries, Hershel looks utterly broken, and the audience is left in complete shock. For all its faults, AMC's The Walking Dead has consistently done one thing right: creative zombie deaths.
For over ten seasons audiences have been treated to a wide variety of skull-smashing, brain-bashing and creative evisceration of the undead. Easily one of the coolest slayings in the history of the show involved our favorite vest-wearing biker dude Daryl channeling his inner Johnny Blaze and using a giant chain to kill two approaching walkers.
Daryl appears a few times on this list due to his constant ingenuity when it comes to killing zombies, but few scenes compare to the sheer awesomeness of watching him chain-whip a duo of walkers. The finale of The Walking Dead's ninth season saw a number of changes to the shows aesthetic by setting most of its action during a winter blizzard.
So, of course, the creators had to throw in a few snow-based Walker kills, the best of which involved Daryl using a nearby icicle to skewer an undead attacker. While the Alexandrian's fought bravely, the tide of the battle turned wildly in their favor when Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham put their master plan in motion: flood the lake of Alexandria with gas and set it aflame, leading the walkers into the fire like moths to a light.
Surrounded by walkers on all sides, all hope seems lost for Abraham, Rosa, and Glenn, until Eugene swoops in with a fire hose. Releasing a torrent of water so powerful it literally tears the zombies to pieces, Eugene hoses away all the potential threats, looking quite proud of himself as he does.
It's a triumphant moment for a character that still has a long way to go until he earns the title of “Survivor,” but it's a bloody great first step. The gory head smash is satisfyingly gross and Daryl once again scores points for making creative use of his environment.
While rigging trying to secure explosives from a highway the Saviors use, Rick and the company noticed an incoming horde of walkers shambling towards them. Carol is easily one of the most efficient and effective killers in all the Walking Dead, despite her humble beginnings.
It's one of the most epic moments in all the Walking Dead and a scene that firmly establishes Carol as one of the most dangerous people in the Dead verse. He began writing at a young age, and fostered his love of comics, horror and films at Columbia College Chicago.
Suspend’s cult classic about Jean-Baptiste Grenville, who is born with the gift of perfect smell, is more than a mere perfumer-turned-serial killer. A tale of obsession, the book follows Grenville as he chases the impossible act of capturing the “perfect scent,” and in doing so lays claim to countless corpses.
“The shining girls” are the targeted victims of Harper Curtis, a man that stumbles upon the ability to travel through time. Trick is, he must travel through time with a specific purpose: to kill every woman that “burn with potential.” Of course, it’s not that simple especially when one of his victims, Kirby Karachi, survives.
The book never oversells its more fantastical elements, nor does it hide a prevailing theme of personal worth, and how one measures it. I love how this book subverts the very act of serial killing with the decision to have it narrated not by the killer, victim, or detective, but rather by the sister of the serial killer, complete with a refreshing bitter tone that screams “dammit sis: Stop leaving your dead boyfriends for me to clean up!” Using this clever upheaval of the serial killer narrative, Braithwaite explores topics of social media, voyeurism, and jealousy in a manner that feels all too real at times.
A tale of potential murder and massacre surrounding a highly-rated young escort, Cooper uses the threat of serial murder to explore obsession, identity, and self-destruction, and he folds it all into an innovative structure that successfully captures the feeling of scrolling through a forbidden corner of the web. No doubt it comes as no surprise to have Light on this list; the author has carved out his own corner of the cosmic horror genre, so much that his own nihilistic philosophy inspired the iconic character x from the first season of True Detective.
True to form, Light aims subverts expectations, further allowing the psychological focus to shine through. A killer descends upon the town and true to form, both the populous and the media that fuels it plays into the frenzy of paranoia.
Fill in the blanks with adolescent bonding and intrigue and Perkins’ book makes this list for its effective use of the aforementioned paranoia to explore racism and self-identity. It is perhaps because the killer is so unexpected that Walker becomes a mark from which the novel does an amazing job of examining the depths of cruelty and the reasons with which one becomes blinded from the severity of their actions.
On November 30, 2013, actor Paul Walker died in a car accident in Santa Clarita, California. While driving, Roads hit a light pole, causing the car to burst into flames, leading to both his and Walker’s deaths.
“Turns out they were betrayed and someone rigged their car’s breaks to malfunction after a certain speed,” the post continued. Another theory, posted on the same website, describes an alleged scenario in which Walker found a trail of dirty money within the charity.
The video alleges that an object, originally appearing in the sky, moves closer to the car in the seconds leading up to the explosion. In another YouTube video, Paul “Rosewater” Gardiner and Kimberly Denise discuss a potential theory that Walker’s death was predicted and caused by the Illuminati.
They question the validity of the story of Walker's death reported by mainstream media before diving into their own explanation. Denise also alluded to other tragic events, such as the Boston Marathon Bombing, that she and Gardiner believe were predicted or foreshadowed in other TV series, including Family Guy and American Dad.
Other characters include Cordell's best friend and partner James “Jimmy” Trieste (Clarence Gil yard), Assistant District Attorney Alex Cahill (Sheree J. Wilson), who also serves as his love interest, and veteran Ranger C.D. On September 23, 2019, it was announced that a reboot was in development produced by and starring Jared Padlock.
Amusingly, a few season one episode accidentally reversed it, so it says Walker, Texas Ranger is Chuck Norris.” Happened again after taking down a thug who had earlier pounded on him as Walker was keeping up the facade of a lowly slave as his cover.
Anticlimax : Given the amount of law-breaking, cop-fighting kick boxers Texas seems to have, when a villain is arrested with relative ease, it can feel like this. Ballistic Discount : A milder version occurs in one episode where three survivalist brothers come into town to get supplies: merely threatening the gun shop clerk rather than killing him outright.
Large holds a courtroom hostage and demands for Walker, taunting that he's too scared to face him. He gets him, when Walker forcefully breaks down the doors and coldly shoots him dead, finally having been pushed too far.
Billed Above the Title : Chuck Norris Bloodless Carnage : When a man in cowboy boots kicks multiple criminals in the head, without drawing blood, this trope is active. Breaking the Fourth Wall : The cast wishes the audience a Merry Christmas at the end of “A Matter of Faith”, C.D.
Sometimes, it's because they themselves have been guilty of being in the wrong and are having a change of heart, or they aren't wise enough to deal with their oppressor in a manipulative or calm, controlled manner. In one episode, a kid is inspired to stand up against the corruption he's witnessed and tells an authority figure about it.
Many episodes end with Walker sparing a dangerous mastermind because it's up to the law to handle them, but many villains break out of prison, or are otherwise ex-cons that manage to kill a few of the people who helped put them away before they're stopped. One recurring villain even managed to take the court hostage and killed the judge (though at least Walker finally put him down after that).
Bulletproof Human Shield : Played ridiculously straight in an episode with a young woman who has been taken hostage and placed in front of a shotgun set to go off at a certain time. Walker finds the villain's hideout, beats him up, and drags him in front of the gun just in time to protect the girl and make the bad guy take the blast.
True to form, only the bad guy is killed, when in real life, the shot probably would have gone through him, Walker, and the poor girl. The kid eventually walks to the roof of the school and tries to jump, and Walker makes a desperate attempt to talk him down.
Walker will then proceed to systematically beat the ever living crap out of any tormentors, proving their nothing but stupid wimps when up against someone who can actually fight back. Bus Crash : Noble Willing ham left the show mid season 7, and in the series finale the Big Bad says that he killed his character.
Technically he was said to have died earlier (the tail end of the episode, “The Avenging Angel”) seemingly from heart failure, and in the finale the villain claims the murder, prompting a second autopsy that confirms cause of death was due to poison. Casting Gag / Celebrity Paradox : In “The Moscow Connection”, at the very beginning, Trieste reads out a piece of literature describing in an almost poetic way of a stand-off between two men.
In Season 7's “Code of the West”, the four main characters talk about who would play them in a movie. Gets Paul Newman (kinda sad in hindsight because both actors are now dead) and Walker gets... Chuck Norris.
A drug cartel leader, after getting his ass thoroughly stomped by Walker, tries to cheat by pulling out a knife and throwing it at him. Walker anticipated the dirty move and in one fluid motion catches the knife and throws it back right into the cartel leader's chest, killing him.
Clear My Name : Alex gets framed for a crime she didn't commit and was thrown in a women's' prison where many of the inmates hold a grudge against her. Cowboy Cop : Taken literally, and a key element of the show's premise, though he isn't usually rebellious or rule-breaking.
Crap sack World : With how many criminals with the mindset that it's perfectly ok to assault law enforcement at a moments notice it's clearly not a good place. Crash Course Landing : Played for Drama in the season 8 finale, when an assassin hijacks the plane that newlyweds Alex and Walker boarded to Paris and ends up not only killing both pilots, but destroys part of the controls with his high-caliber bullets smashing into the systems.
Walker is forced to radio in a mayday to flight control, which prompts them to give him specific instructions to land the plane, with Alex's help, of course. Said landing is actually not clean; Walker creams a billboard, high-rise parking complex, and the cars inside on the way down to the airport runway because he flew too low.
Gage and Sydney badger an accountant for a rich scumbag into testifying against him and board a private flight back to Fort Worth. However, the Chairman's lackey, the “Wizard,” has hacked into the plane's controls and proceeds to depressurize the cabins, knocking everyone out, while cutting off the radio contact and opening up the fuel tanks to help incite a horrific crash.
Luckily, he has a mobile phone on him that allows Walker to contact him at the first sign of trouble, and Walker has a splendid memory, telling Gabe exactly how to land the plane since his own brush with fate- which ends successfully. Crazy-Prepared : In one episode, Walker, in his pickup truck, is being chased by a bad guy in an attack helicopter.
It's pretty much implied the military supplied him with it, as they knew how to counter their own weapon. Crossover : Cordell Walker had teamed up with Ammo Hung of Martial Law at least twice.
Crossover Cosmology : Despite the heavy Christian undertones of the show, there's also episodes that involve other types of spiritual and cultural magic and mythology. Crusading Widower : Walker channeled his anger and grief over his fiancée's murder into being the best cop possible.
Parker was a target, the bad guys would brutally beat up hapless individuals to try to impose their will, or to attempt to intimidate always unsuccessfully Walker and his Rangers. In one episode where a delusional man kidnaps CD's niece and forces her into a Bonnie and Clyde fantasy of his, he goes around terrorizing people.
When he finally gets cornered and disarmed by Walker, he tries a last ditch effort to stab him with a hidden knife. In “A Deadly Vision”, he is almost absent, and we see Trieste and CD run around solving the case together, along with a one-shot psychic.
Also played painfully straight in the episode “Behind the Badge,” where Walker is in the spotlight for a documentary show and Trieste wants to impress them. Death by Materialism : Some jerk asses would willingly sell out their own to the villain of the week for cash.
Defeat Equals Explosion : Designated Victim : Alex Cahill, nearly an example of Once an Episode. The serial rapist from “Justice For All” enjoys beating on women before attempting to rape them.
The episode with the kid and his supercomputer best friend, with a script that would have been more at home in a Disney flick. The show usually had grittier plots beforehand, but as it went on, the episodes began focusing on young kids or teens staying on the right path.
“Do It Yourself” Theme Tune : “The Eye of the Ranger” is written and performed by Chuck Norris himself. The only true subversion is Victor Large, who, after three consecutive murder/mayhem sprees, gets shot down by Walker himself when he attempts to train his gun on the Ranger.
Trying to rape Alex three times and remorseless killings of innocent people left him beyond redemption. In “The Prodigal Son,” he kills one of Mancini's Books during his epic motorcycle scene, and in the second part of “Something in the Shadows,” he blows away a drug dealer.
Drowning Pit : “No Way Out” centers around this, as Trieste, and Rhoda guessed, Alex, get kidnapped and imprisoned by Caleb Hooks in a water tank at a sewage treatment facility, which gradually fills up and threatens to drown them, while they reminisce on happier times in hopes Walker will save them à la Clip Show style. Dynamic Entry : Chuck Norris flying-kicks himself into so many scenes one would be forgiven for thinking this to be his primary mode of travel.
Even Evil Has Standards : After Trent and Carlos arrest a pedophile kidnapper, the inmates beat him to within an inch of his life once they found out why he was put in prison. In another episode, when a gang of criminals takes a group of nuns hostage, at least one of them is extremely uncomfortable with this.
One situation in particular is a kid bully who repeatedly gets into fights with the son of a recently deceased police officer on the way home from school. When Gage and Sydney were introduced, they both played Bad Cop by hard-balling arrested baddies.
There so irredeemably evil that its oh so satisfying seeing Walker and crew beat the ever living shit out of them. Hero of Another Story : There was an additional pair of Texas Rangers that showed up when the plot required more police be involved.
Hit Stop : It is guaranteed that Walker and Trieste will each dish out one of these per episode to the bad guys, and probably many more. Hoist by His Own Petard : In “A Father's Image,” a mafia don who abuses his young son in order to “raise him into the family business” forces his son to climb to the top of a bookshelf ladder and orders him to jump, saying he'll catch him if he trusts him.
When he jumped, the father immediately pulls away and lets his son painfully hit the floor. At the end of the episode once the Texas Rangers bust in and beat down the books, the mafia don loses his gun, which is picked up by his son.
If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him : I'm a Humanitarian : The villain of “Swan Song” survived a plane crash after it was shot down and got lost in the mountains, going insane and strapping plane parts to his face, then ending up so feral that he began to eat humans and use their bones and skulls as furniture. Idiot Ball : To go along with their over-the-top capital-E Evil, most of the criminals in the series seem to lack common sense to a ridiculous degree.
Insignia Rip-Off Ritual : Walker fights and beats up a corrupt racist sheriff who ruled a small town with an iron fist and Fantastic Racism. After Walker kicks the shit out of him, he rips the sheriff badge off his chest, signifying the bastard doesn't deserve to wear it.
Invincible Hero : Most “fights” in the series are short, one-sided beat downs, though this is partly due to most of the criminal population of Texas having “punch cop” as their default response to feeling threatened. Improbable Aiming Skills : In “The Prodigal Son,” crime boss Mancini manages to rather impressively hit Walker firing a handgun from a helicopter mid-flight.
The crime lord, after getting a call from his hitman that he's prepared to kill the witness and his family, he tells his lawyer that he and Alex can “stick their deal”. At the trial, the crime lord is shocked to see the witness still alive and tries to settle a deal with Alex.
The Jinx : The subplot in “Medieval Crimes” concerns Trieste having to transport a prisoner back to headquarters, who is a living jinx that causes Trieste all sorts of bad luck (including food poisoning, tons of bee stings, and the car breaking down). Laser-Guided Karma : To basically all the villains who use force to terrorize their victims, Walker treats them to an equal if not more brutal ass-kicking on them.
Last-Name Basis : 9 seasons and even Walker's own girlfriend and eventual wife called him by his last name more often than she did his first. You could count on one hand the number times either of them were referred to by their first name (Jimmy and Francis, respectively).
There were also more Very Special Episode s, such as a plot involving a mentally disabled child, school bullying, teens using drugs, and young kids getting swept up into the wily ways of bad street gangs. “Lucas” two-seater is also rather dark, dealing with young boy with AIDS, and it ends with him and his mother dying.
At the end, when everything has been worked out, Walker makes a comment which Alex interprets to mean she looks terrible. Walker dares him to try and make a move after being put on the spot, then gives a disgusted glare when the leader does nothing.
Multiple-Choice Past : The mythical accounts of Hayes Cooper's life don't add up, with the very first saying he died and his spirit emerging to help Walker out (or possibly a snake venom-induced hallucination, as Walker had been poisoned at the time he saw Cooper), while another account says he turned in his badge to raise a family, Reconning his so-called death. A group of masked rich guys take pleasure in beating up homeless people nearly to death for their own amusement.
Another especially bad example involves a bratty kid demanding a lawyer before he talks to the cops. His father refuses and basically threatens to beat the crap out of him if he doesn't tell the cops what he knows.
In another episode, Sydney and Gage arrive at someone's home to ask if his brother (their murder suspect) is there. Speaking of Alex, she apparently believes this so strongly that when she herself is a murder suspect, she talks to the cops and assistant DA without an attorney.
CD : “You know, Jimmy, in all my years, I never enjoyed seeing a dead body. Playground Song : In “White Buffalo”, a hoodlum who holds up a convenience store, and who's a little off his rocker, forces a woman to sing “99 Bottles of Beer” with him at gunpoint.
An especially bad example is the federal agent who botches the rescue of Sydney and Alex when they're abducted by a drug cartel. Police Brutality : Everyone in the cast is shown beating up suspects on a regular basis.
While this is usually justified by the fact that the suspects attacked them first, occasionally, criminals don't do anything more than make snide, nasty comments. While certainly rude and out of line, it's not illegal and does not warrant physical violence on the cops' part.
Politically Incorrect Villain : The hate groups Walker and company would go up against and soundly kick their asses. Politician Guest Star : The Season 5 episode “The Winds of Change” sees Walker, who had started a boot camp for juvenile offenders, locking horns with a powerful Senator; with then-Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson making an appearance.
Despite the set up, Trent and Carlos continue to appear on the show afterwards to help the main characters. Psychopathic Man Child : In “Deadly Vision” where a pedophile kidnaps a little girl and basically forces her to play with him.
He's also coupled with Spoiled Brat tendencies and planned to kill her mother, so he'd have the girl to himself, but ultimately gets curb stomped by Walker before he could carry it out. Real After All : In the episode about UFO sightings, turned out to be a secret government project.
Redemption Rejection : Mad Dog in the “Mr. Justice” episode where a group of teens with known felonies were brought to Walker's Boot Camp in order to direct them on the just path as opposed to being thrown in jail. Fortunately, the other delinquents chose to help Walker and capture Mad Dog.
In the end, all the other delinquents came out better people, even became officers of Camp Justice, tasked with rehabilitating other teen felons. The series finale revolves around a gang of criminals, that we had never seen before, breaking out of prison and taking revenge on Walker who supposedly arrested them around the time the first season would have taken place.
In “Family Matters”, where a guy acts out of control, believing himself to be over the law due to his sister being in the witness protection program by the FBI. When one of his stints goes too far holding a child hostage, he winds up accidentally shooting and killing his sister when she tried to stop him, and thus the FBI no longer have any reason to keep him out of prison.
Walker could only give the asshole a hateful Death Glare as he gets carted away before coldly asking whops going to protect him now. The antagonists who are the arrogant offspring of rich families thinking they are entitled to do anything because of their money and social statuses.
Special mentions in “Eyes of a Ranger”, where the son of a rich man stalks and terrorizes a teenage girl, claiming her as his “soulmate”, even going so far as to leave threatening messages on her answering machine. Shaming the Mob : A town accusing a mentally challenged man for killing an upstanding citizen of their community mob and burn down a shelter Walker and the local authorities were keeping the accused for protective custody.
Walker calls out the mob on their actions and that they almost killed an innocent man before commanding them to leave. Something We Forgot : In “Survival”, Walker and company subdue a group of drug dealers and tied them to trees.
At the end of the episode after rescuing Alex and the other two female hostages, they get the feeling they forgot something. Scene switches back to the drug dealer group still tied to the trees, and it was down pouring.
Spy Catsuit : Several, most notably Joan Jett's character in “Wedding Bells”. Sting : A few of them play in “Black Dragons” when Walker and Trieste react to a woman being thrown off a tall building to her death.
Stock Footage : The episode “The Deadliest Man Alive” mixes footage of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders (the main plot involves Walker and an Interpol agent attempt to stop a would-be assassin from killing an Israeli ambassador at a Dallas Cowboys game) with stock footage of the short-lived United States Football League ; which had folded over a decade prior. Stuffed into the Fridge : Many murder mysteries result in the victim getting a grisly fate.
Tempting Fate : In “The Principal”, a corrupt drug-dealing high school teacher was about to throw a student off a rooftop for refusing to deal his drugs and threatening to expose him to the authorities. Trieste tried to peacefully tell them to just leave if they had a problem with it, causing the leader to shove him away.
Aside from being highly stupid in the first place, as assaulting a police officer is a serious felony, it's even more so considering the martial arts skills that they all possess. Those Wacky Nazis : Neo-Nazis appear in one episode, trying to drive minister Paul Winfield out of town.
Too Dumb to Live : A lot of the villains of the week, especially the ones who have pressed Walker's Berserk Button. Special mentions to Large, who was too Stupid Evil to live as he pressed Walker's Berserk Button THREE TIMES.
An accountant and his family were placed in a witness protection program with Gage and Sydney when they are targeted by a crime lord. He and Trieste hung a guy upside down and threatened to put his head in a bag with a rattlesnake in it, scaring him into talking (he had a snake phobia).
After getting the information they needed, Trieste gleefully reveals that it was just a toy snake with a tape recorder. When a took refused to tell Walker about the big bad's next plan, the undercover cop decides to take over.
Ironically, the cop was being interrogated the same way by the same took not long ago, but managed to resist. He showed the arsonist exactly what would happen to him if he didn't talk by first casually breaking a table and punching a hole near his head.
The Troubles : Flash point has Walker and Trieste track down a radical IRA faction after a violent attack on a peace conference. Unlucky Thirteen : The Viper, a high-profile assassin, has already killed twelve high-status marks and was going for his thirteenth.
Very Special Episode : Later seasons began preaching the classic moral ethics children should follow in response to the increasing number of kids tuning in to watch the show, which kept parents from citing the show was too violent. In particular, the loathsome Large, who finds Walker and Trieste ransacking his motel room and informs them that without a warrant, his permission, or the motel owner's permission, anything they find is useless, and in fact, he can charge THEM with breaking and entering.
However, after a deal with Walker to let the Rangers do their job if his son is personally caught in the act, that safety net was removed. He takes a courtroom hostage and cruelly taunts everyone there, especially Alex. The bastard also taunts how Walker is “too scared to face him” when he isn't around, despite Trieste calling out how it was Walker who brutally kicked his ass both times (and like a pathetic brat, he denies it).
Walker had finally had enough since beating the shit out of that fucker didn't stick, so decided to just outright kill him and end his reign of terror once and for all. Visions of Another Self : The Series Finale has parallel stories of the modern day characters and a set of Old West counterparts.
Another episode, a season finale, had a group of assassins stalking the members of a wedding party (a never-before-seen female Ranger and a never-before-seen assistant DA, along Walker and Alex, of course) who had previously put them in jail. One episode has him grin as he intentionally causes a took to trigger their own bomb, only to go out of his way to spare the mastermind, who was actually shown to be a monster.
This is made all the worse by the fact that if a villain is ever shown doubting the mastermind or attempting to redeem themselves, they're usually killed, giving the impression that the average took is only working for the episode's Big Bad because they have no other choice. In “The Final Show/Down”, the villain, having previously lost to him as a criminal and with an ancestral grudge, plans to take some revenge that promises to be needlessly elaborate.
Local declares that contrary to being so simple, he will start killing Texas Rangers to build suspense and make Walker afraid of him. Would Hurt a Child : Many of the villains of the week have no qualms about attempting to kill children.
Lets not get started on the cult who kidnapped children to use as human sacrifices for their sick ritual. However, this trope has not applied to villains, as there are many episodes where the bad guys freely and remorselessly strike women at will, only to get it from Walker and Trieste in the end.
